Pre Wedding Photography Macau – Part 3

This post, as promised, is the outcome of the professional photos taken at Macau in 2014. This is also linked to my Pre Wedding Photography Macau Experience which I have elaborated on my photography experience with one of Singapore’s leading bridal stores – Thomson Wedding Collections (TWC). Photography by: Dawn Koh from TWC.   Makeup for bride and groom by: Joyce from TWC  My curly wavy hairdo without the pinups for the morning shoot. 1. Ruins of St Paul  This church, dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle was built in the 17th century but was destroyed by a huge fire in 1835 and what remains till today is the facade of the church. It is one of Macau’s best known landmarks and has been officially listed as part of the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 2. Travessa da Paixao We walked down the steps below Ruins of St. Paul to the back alleys of Ruins of St Paul about 50 meters and found this interesting narrow street. The both sides feature European style building, brightly painted in traditional Portuguese colours. Upon exiting ‘Travessa da Paixao’, we chanced upon the Macau Post Box.   3. St. Dominic’s Church The St. Dominic’s Church is a late 16th century Baroque-style church and serves within the Cathedral Parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Macau. This is also one of the 29 sites that form the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 4. Senado Square (Largo do Senado) Senado Square has been Macau’s urban centre for centuries & still a popular venue for celebrations. It is paved with a wave-patterned mosaic colored stones created by the Portuguese. It was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2005 and forms part of the Historic Centre of Macau.  This photo was taken at the traffic lighting crossing at the entrance of Senado Square.

Pre-Wedding Photography Thomson Wedding Collection (Part 1)

We are almost done with our pre-wedding photography and are waiting for our photos to be edited *Yay*! I will be blogging about our Pre-Wedding Photography experiences with Thomson Wedding Collection (TWC) in 3 parts: PART 1) The Trial – Spotting the Perfect Wedding Gowns for Photoshoot   PART 2) Pre-Wedding Photography Experience in Macau PART 3) Outcome of the Pre-Wedding Photos (New Post!) [1] The Trial – Spotting the Perfect Wedding Gowns for Photoshoot After Michelle (the Lady Boss) sold us the pre-wedding photography package, the next thing we needed to do was to visit their shop at Tanjong Pagar to select our gowns. There are two levels at their shop house. The first level showcases their latest white wedding gowns, while the second floor showcases more of the outdoor photography gowns. I was introduced to Fiona (Michelle’s younger sister) who assisted with my selection of gowns. Fiona is extremely helpful and recommended the styles which she thinks would suit me better. For my package, I was allowed to select a total of 4 gowns (regardless of length). The photos below are some of the gowns that I’ve tried on… WHITE GOWNS  The White Gown below is what I selected in the end. It just reminded me of two tiered cupcakes!   I felt that the hardest to decide on was the white gowns because TWC has so many designs for you to choose from. But Brides-To-Be (BTB) only can pick one gown out of the whole selection!      ARGH.   COLOURED GOWNS   Now, moving on to the coloured gowns.   My skin type is towards the darker skin tone, hence I avoided all biege or brownish coloured gowns.   Black Laced Long Gown    Bright Sunny Yellow Layered Gown    A similar version of the gown above can also be found in red.   Red Layered Gown    Dark Purple Gown with Crystals belt   Simple Royal Blue Gown   Princess Cut Red Gown   White & Pink layered Mermaid cut Gown    Turquoise Mermaid Cut Gown with Hot Pink Flowers    Note for Brides considering to sign up with TWC:   1. TWC has got more white gowns for selection rather than coloured gowns. In fact, if you were to sign up the Actual Day (AD) Photography with them, you’ll get to pick the latest and much more beautifully designed gowns (Sweethearts, Enchanted, Mermaid, Princess, Laced, Layered etc. ) found at the first floor. Check them out before signing up.   2. TWC...

Pretty Fit x ELLE SG Style Workshop

Learnt fashion styles from PrettyFit & ELLE SG with Singapore bloggers Peggy Chang, Evonne and ELLE Fashion Editor at Cityhall! The event showcased some of PrettyFit’s Precious moments collections consisting of heels, wedges, flats, clutches, bags and sunglasses. The ELLE Mag fashion editor got some participants to try out some new styles from the Prettyfit collection and shared tips to match daily outfits and special occasions.  Both Peggy and Evonne tried out different styles recommended by the ELLE for their outfits too. PrettyFit also introduced some of their yet to release shoes designs which will be ready in stores in August 2014 – Refer to the rack on the left.  I tried on some of the designs that caught my eyes… Their footwear pricing ranges from $69.90 to $99.90. Note: There is a store discount of 20% for all original priced items. Blingy Pinkish Flats – for the casual date out   There’s also the black coloured version: Black Glittery Short Heels – suitable for friday and weekends  Pretty Gold and Silver Thick Ribbon Flats – For literally anyday!     I was and am still looking for suitable wedding heels for myself. There was one style which stood out from the rest of the collections for its unique design and blings. If you happen to have good recommendations for a nice looking blingy wedding high heels, please drop me a note. Appreciate it. 🙂  PrettyFit has this really all-so-adorable white pearly polka dots pink flats (that matched my polka dotted pink jeans)!  Oversized sunglasses are great for the upcoming beach trip…!  PrettyFit’s stuff are rather afforable. I just wished that they have more selections on bridal wear as I feel we are limited by the selections of such footwear in Singapore! Most of the heels out there are great for dates or special occasions but not that many are designed for once-in-a-lifetime big events like weddings. Nonetheless, the white heels are definitely in my consideration...

The Pre-Wedding Preparation

This is like one of the biggest headaches moments in life! depends on how you want to view it. Haha. There are quite a number of things to do after the proposal.  (1) Proposal Ring & Selection of the Wedding Ring My proposal ring (of cos I couldn’t select this as it’s a surprise)! I love it! Simple & Elegant, nothing too fussy! As the ring is made in one whole piece together with the 4 prongs by twisting the ring slightly, our jeweler David (from THE ENGAGEMENT RING SHOP @Suntec Tower 1 #04-01) almost fainted when he had to re-size my engagement ring from size 11 to  5. It’s more than 50% difference in sizes! He mentioned that it would have been easier to re-size if the ring was separated from the diamond and prongs. On hearing that I was DAMN a little worried… then he reassured that he will try his utmost best to get it re-sized to fit my finger…  and here it is!   It fits perfectly now! Love my bling lots 🙂 Thank You David !!!  Lesson learnt for boyfriends: Please go steal take one of your gf’s rings so that your proposal ring size will not be so drastically different! She probably wouldn’t notice if it’s missing either cos girls usually have quite alot of accessories. HAHA. And now it’s just choosing between 2 designs:         Of course… my favourite would have been as many big blings as possible (see below) ! Hahaaaa !!! (2) Pre-Wedding Photography (Local / Overseas) So after the proposal, it was time to decide whether to take the pre-wedding photography locally or overseas. I knew that I wanted to go overseas for photography… as I would also take it as a trip for relaxation. Bluebay almost got us confirmed with their Taiwan package at about $2,000 (30 poses, hardcopy album, signature wedding scroll etc). This amount does not include our own air tickets, accommodation, travelling etc. We didn’t need to pay for the photographer & makeup artist’s airfare and accommodation as they are all taiwanese. Plus, they provided an assistant to follow the couple around for photography. However, one must be comfortable with picking all the gowns at Taiwan in one day and settle for photography immediately the next day and selecting the photos before you return to Singapore. Also, the staff speak in Chinese, so for a potato like myself.. there will be some unfamiliar Chinese terms which I will need to clarify with them. I found their photos really well taken and didn’t seem that old fashioned like what most...
