Filled with joy & excitement to be back at Pangkor Laut Resort for the 4th time round, I was equally nervous. Not because the wedding was on an island, not because it was the smallest wedding I’ve ever shot, but because this time, in my 6 years of shooting weddings, I was going to shoot it alone. Being the paranoid and kiasu (there, I admit it!) freak I am, the thoughts just kept playing in my head… what if I miss the shot? what if I miss the exchange of rings? What if my shots are blur or out of focus? There’s no Steve or David or Jason or Nic to back me up, or hold the flash up, or lift the veil! Oh no! Despite all that drama that was going through my head, it went well. Perfect, in my opinion! Jessica and Gav’s wedding is by far the most intimate wedding I’ve been a part of. And by intimate, I mean 12 of them, bride and groom included!

The wedding ceremony and exchange of vows were held at the beautiful sandy beach of Emerald Bay. It was a short and sweet ceremony followed by a portrait shoot of the cute couple at sunset. Luck would have it, there was Ben, an intern at PLR who was eager to help! And so, I had found my assistant! The highlight of the night for me was the Chinese wishing lanterns. Everyone wrote a wish on a paper lantern, lit it and released it to the sky. It was a pretty sight indeed and definitely a photo opp!

Congrats to Jessica & Gav! Wishing you both all the love & laughter in the world! (with Gav’s sense of humor, we can be sure of it!)
