Finally getting down to sharing pics from our pre-wedding shoot! 😬
Yesterday, we ‘mini-celebrated’ a month of married life haha. Can’t believe it’s been a month since the wedding!! But actual day pics gotta take more time so I’ll dayre abt that next time!
Rewind to June 5, y’all rmb ahlao almost couldn’t make it for our shoot! WELL HE DID! 😃
He ended work at like 230am and stayed over at my place. We then woke up at 5am to prepare! Madness 😵
Ahlao was concussed on the fluffy hotel bed while I was getting my make up done for the first scene! Zbj lol.
I’ll share the full list of vendors at the end of the post ok! This was a styled shoot & we collaborated with so many wonderful people!! Some of which we really engaged for our wedding day too :)
I made cupkeks for the set up hehe.
Macarons too! ✨
This pretty mess 🍓🍓
Must feed my VIPig berries somemore 🐽
And then I finally get to join ahlao in bed 😂
When you forever asking “我的脸油吗” hahaha.
We had a casual bed & breakfast scene in the hotel room before changing into our gown & suit for the rest of the day!
This was my favourite part cos we got to roll in bed and catch some sleep in between waiting lolol 😅
These are sneaks from the photog but I’ll also be sharing some bts pics my friend took for us!
Thank you @minminhuang for taking time off work to help me out!! 🙆🏻♀️🙆🏻♀️
Lol a pillow fight ensued 🤣
“Guji her! Guji her!!” 😆
HAHAHA IT WAS SO MUCH FUN 😁😁
Getting ready for our next scene at the Rumpoles Bar! I wore my first gown of the day, a navy blue sparkly one hehe.
I got so many compliments for this but I found it a tad heavy & also a bit too revealing. As you can see it was reallyyyy low cut lolol 😆 So I didn’t choose this for my AD!
Ahlao had his hair done too hehe hu dat 帅哥 😍
Rumpoles Bar at Hotel Jen Tanglin had this really retro European feel to it!
Awkward max lolol. I kent do the demure smile at all!! 😂
When your videographer is an ex-dancer (for real lol) but you laoya af hahaha 🤣🤣
But the picture was perfect ✨
The set up in the dining area!
I love this pic ❤️
The table setting was beyond gorgeous; so thankful for the styling team! They put in a lot of effort for it, and even used saga seeds hehe ❤️
It was juice in the glass, not red wine 😂😂
They also got us to thank each other for things we were thankful for and Ahlao was being so sincere and sweet I kept crying 😭
Had late lunch (we ordered ALT pizza for everyone; the truffle mushroom was so gud!!) & then we rushed off to our next location for the last scene!
It was 5pm by the time we got there and it was so humid!! 😭 My worst nightmare lolol.
It was a large grassy area somewhere near the hotel; we just followed their cars haha & they even told us to wait inside while they set up in the heat 😭😭
HU. DAT. CUTIE.
I love Ahlao’s suit so much! We had it tailor made for his perfect bod (ok I need to stahp) during our BKK trip last year!
Paid like $220 for this hehe. White shirt not included. But the tailor gave us a tie 😅
He rushed it out within like 4 days and sent it to our airbnb personally! Quality and service was superb. Check out Emporium Tailor at Sukhumvit!
I painted my own nails for the shoot lolol aiyah 随便 la 😅
And my earrings were $7 😂
Mad in love with my hair that day :’)
Plus I finally achieved that light brown over the past few months haha. When your hair is lighter you can see the textures and waves much better! Tip for #dayrebrides 🤗
“Close your eyes and find her nose!”
My double chin says hi 😆
I 偷笑 again hahaha I really kent 🤣
My gorgeous strapless gown 😍 Sorry I shameless but what a 美女!! The gown made me feel so at ease and I just loved it so much.
Throughout the past few months, I never once forced myself to fit into any gown. I found a gown that fit me instead.
I made a rustic berry kek for the dessert table set up! Shameless plug, please reach out to me if you’d like a similar kek for your wedding or photoshoot! 😅🤗
GORGEOUS rustic bouquet from my lovely friend who runs Keira Floral!
She’s actually Ling’s bestfriend (they still are!!) from primary school so also my junior haha. A bunch of them used to come over to our house to play and she always calls me 姐 (and still does!!); fond memories!
I rmb when she was starting out, she sent my mum flowers, and always asked us for comments and suggestions. Look at how far she’s come today! So happy for you meimei!! 💖💖
Paparazzi shot by ahlao lol. I was laughing so hard cos it was so warm and humid, but Kuan (our photog) told me to pretend we were in London HAHAHAHA I AM DED 🤣
Ahlao knows my best angles 🤩❤️
Trying to hide my double chin be like.. 😅😅
Love this pic. Love this gown!! 😍
Josh (videographer) made us read our vows to each other and I was tearing again :’)
He really knows how to evoke emotions so the photog can get gud pics! We really worked with an amazing star squad and I’m so thankful!! ❤️❤️
Towards the end of our shoot, a miracle happened and we actually witnessed a once in a blue moon PINK SUNSET!! 💖
Imagine our joy!!!
I always told ahlao that those people who kena colourful skies during their wedding shoot really damn lucky.
But I knew it was too much to wish for so I didn’t even dare dream of it. I just hoped for no rain. But pusa blessed us with one, and it was todali beautifulllll we were all in awe!! 😭🙏🏼
This gigantic standing floral installation brought us so much laughter hahaha you’ll see later!! 😁
All we did was took one each and waved them for a bit! And it was like SNOWING 😂
It was madness lolol. Had to dust off all the seeds from our hair and clothes. Some even got stuck on my lashes!! 😆
But the pictures turned out so beautifully, it was all worth it!
Kuan was really gud at timing; somehow she just managed to get all the gud shots!!
I fell in love with her work when I found her on IG. We even wanted to engage her for our AD but she had commitments already; I was so sed la!!!
Her ROM was one day after mine.
We both got our owns from WC.
We both are having our banquet at Hotel Jen Tanglin!
So qiao la 🤗
This is my FAVOURITESTTT picture from the whole pws. Cos our smiles looked so heppi ☺️
When my idol LTT wanted to gift me a piece of wud as wedding gift to put in #SungHouse, I had this printed! 🌳
See!! What a perfect perfect wedding gift :’)
And she printed this at the back! Aww 💓
Thank you so much for this wonderful piece of wud my dear LTT! @jazreeltan 🙆🏻♀️❤️
“More more more!” 😂😂😂
And then we got this pic 💋
I have no words for Kuan’s work. She even captured my hair flying on my face. Really got snowy London vibe 🤩
And.. it’s a wrap! 🙆🏻♀️🌳❤️
So so so thankful for this team of people, really. We shot for like 12 hours straight not including their prep and packing up 😭
Everyone was dead beat & sticky & tired at the end of the day but the energy was just great. My MUA even went back to the hotel with me to help me remove make up and undo my hair! 😭😭
And during that time we had a chat & I found out she has been working in Mediacorp for years! As their MUA! No wonder so bagus 😁

Really tired today so I’ll continue the videography part tmr ok! 😅
Ok hi I’m back to continue my post 😆
So one afternoon, we were scheduled to film with Josh at Coney Island cos he needed some footage for our actual day video as well :)
Ahlao stayed over at my place the day before, and we went out for lunch at Redhill Market with gugubie in tow! 😁
We opted for the outdoor seats! Alfresco ok! 😂
This boy was sniffing around but he was really well-behaved the whole time while we were eating!
The old people kept coming over to pet and talk to him lolol 🤗
Hokkien mee before shoot cos why not 💁🏻♀️
Ahlao asked if I wanted to share but I was like WHAT IS SHARE JUST GIMME MY NOODLES AND MY LARD.
We shared a juice though 🍉 #priorities
This boy still patiently waiting while Ahlao went to buy stupiak expensive pineapples.
$7 wtf lol.
Arrived at Coney after getting lost by taking wrong turns TWICE lolol. Why is it so hard to find this place!!
But legit cos my hair was so long back then, they keep sticking to my neck if it’s too warm or humid and I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT.
It was reallyyyy windy that day!
Like, really windy 🤣
Hu dat cutie 🤗
When you wear dress but you rugged.
Ahlao kept teasing me lolol zbj 😠
The view that day! 🌲🌲
Josh picked this area for the drone scene! Initially we were holding hands walking, then he suggested we run. To my horror 😂
We ran at least 20 times and that was more than I ever ran in the past five years 😂😂😂
And ran somemore.. 😅😅
It was quite a nightmare to run so much in my sneakers cos they’re quite new!
I walk perfectly ok in them but the running caused a lot of friction that gave me so much pain 😭
👩🏻 Yunno I’m dying?
👦🏻 Bear with it a little more ok?
👩🏻 Yunno I’m dying??
We. Ran. So. Much 😭😭
But still remembered to take a nice pic for the memories 😆
Josh’s wife, who’s also Ling’s poly bestfriend lolol (they’re all dance mates!) was around that day and she helped me take lots of BTS photos on my phone hehe 🤗
And they after running, we took some slow dance scene. It’s nothing la, the whole world watching only 😆
It was mad awkward but ya 😂😂
Wedding shoots in public places are really awkward when you’re the subject lol.
Well maybe passers by won’t give much heck but you just feel like everyone’s staring.
Plus the conditions are mostly not very gud like you have sore feet, sticky skin, sweat dripping down your face, but you still gotta hug and kiss, laugh and smile like you in London 😅
I had to keep telling myself, this is all for the footage.
ALL FOR THE FOOTAGE.
ALL FOR THE FOOTAGE.
ALL FOR THE FOOTAGE.
But then here comes my biggest nightmare. We were heading into the woods!! 🤣
We had to bash through those thick bushes and go hug each other hahaha. Very romantic hor?
As you can see the grass was legit knee high and there were sooo many prickly things and bugs that attacked us the moment we walked in 😭
And then we had to hug and look into each other’s eyes like damn loving all but at every split second I was twitching and shaking lolol it was quite a funny and dreadful experience at the same time!!
It made for a pretty scene though 😭
You can’t see anything from here but there were sooooo many ants on Ahlao’s shirt and so many more on my skirt!!!
A big bug also flew into my chest area and I jumped like crayyyyyy omg I hated that day sooo muchhhh.
People who are terrified of creepy crawlies lol y’all better stay away from coney island don’t say I neh warn you.
I know I sound like I’m whining so much but it was really quite bad 😩 I legit respect everyone who has done a shoot there lolol.
Highlight of the day was when we saw a lady bug that loved Ahlao’s belt so much it pretty much decided to stay there 😂
Last part was the beach scene! This was much better cos we just pretended to walk here and there hahaha.
We also shot a scene of us picking saga seeds on the beach HAHAHA.
Zero logic but whatever 😅
ALL FOR THE FOOTAGE.
This one I DED 😂
We were supposed to tickle each other then Ahlao was gonna carry me and twirl me around like I weighed nothing but of course reality hurts when your wife is deadweight 🤣
GUD TRAI BEZ TRAIII 🤣🤣
Don’t see this video like very shit but in slow-mo it’ll be like super nice one okayyy HAHA.
JUST KIDDING THIS SCENE TODALI DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE FINAL CUT LOLOL.
Show y’all some sneaks of the AD video that had Coney footage!
I uploaded the full version on IGTV; go watch it there ok! ❤️
