Lighting up each other's lives with laughter and silly antics, Hester and Yongtian's pre-wedding photoshoot in Singapore is a double whammy of light-hearted fun and deep, sentimental feelings. Using two different photographers, the playful pair paid homage to their Peranakan heritage in a mirthful, nostalgia-driven shoot at Dakota Crescent – one of Singapore's oldest estates (soon to be demolished, sadly!) – and a heartfelt. sun-bathed shoot in formal wedding outfits at East Coast Park. Check out the lovely photos below...
A word from Hester, the bride:
Since we both have some Peranakan blood in us, we thought it would be nice to have a fun Peranakan shoot at Dakota Crescent. We wanted a different feel from the traditional shots, as we're both boisterous, and very emotional as a couple. We were laughing throughout the session and had a great time. As for the formal gown-and-suit shoots, we wanted some emotion after all the wedding prep. The spot we were in looked very Australian as well.
