Joel & Pam. Singapore.

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.
