In all honesty, I was a bit worried about shooting Joel & Pam’s wedding.
I’ve always been a bit hesitant to shoot weddings back in Singapore. Ever since moving to Melbourne, I’ve been spoilt with good light and intimate celebrations. My memory of weddings in Singapore is being hot & humid, of events filled with obligations & traditions, and many people cramped in small spaces.

But when I met Joel & Pam, something in my gut told me to go for it.
Joel met Pam in university, where they both studied law. They actually met when Joel, being the gentleman he is, helped Pam pick up her notes from the floor. As the saying goes, the rest is history. Joel is still a lawyer while Pam runs a social enterprise called Saught, which creates jewellery from landmines & unexploded ordinance to support post-conflict countries. (Check out Saught here)

As they spoke about their wedding, Joel & Pam made it clear that it was a thanksgiving celebration focused on their friends & family having a good time.  And in an effort to honour their parents & traditions, they had two receptions – one for themselves (with awesome pancakes) & one for their family.

This turned out to be one of my favourite weddings of the year.
It was truly special day. A friend described Joel as “a guy who has waited his whole life to get married.”
The pastor who married them also married Joel’s parents 30 years ago. Friends flew in from far & wide, vendors became friends, and the evening light was magical, a far cry from my memories of photographing weddings in Singapore 8 years ago. Their logo on the invitation and place cards, designed by close friends Alex & Pui Yee was simple & clever, elements that I really enjoy seeing in graphic design. Pam ended the night with a surprise ukulele rendition of the song “Closer to You” for Joel, showered with stars and glitter.

I’m thankful our paths crossed & am glad that now I can call JAM friends of mine.

I love how you care about brokenness & how the sick moves your heart enough to make a change. You give your all everyday & I love everything about you.” – Sher

John & Sher are both doctors with a passion & genuine heart for people. Their journey as a couple has been one of many travels, particularly to less fortunate countries as medical volunteers.

Their wedding was held at a beautiful resort called Paresa, in Phuket, Thailand, which means “heaven on earth”. Surrounded by their closest family & friends, they celebrated their union as one. This was one of their 3 weddings, with 2 other receptions in Singapore & Malaysia a week after, to honour their parents. When they were telling me their story of how they met, Sher mentioned how John used to ride a vespa back when they were dating. Everything about this wedding was an expression of their love for each other & their loved ones. The night finished with a song dedicated to their parents, followed by a fist bump to trigger off a spectacular display of fireworks. A standing ovation followed suit & every single person left the wedding with their hearts full.

Sher turned to me at the end of the night with a great big smile & said, “I really enjoyed myself, I wish I could do it all over again.”
Sher, I did too.

Last November after Paul & Victoria’s wedding here, I headed over to Newcastle to pay the Robertsons a visit. I had met David, Shobz & little Elijah once prior before going over, and we had an instant connection. The next 3 days in their lovely home involved conversations over coffee & breakfast, putting Elijah down for naps, taking naps while Elijah was napping, David whipping up desserts at will and also the idea of hosting workshops in Asia.

Today, 4 months later, we are proud to launch At Home workshops in Malaysia June 2014. See our website here for details.
