Sarah contacted me back in Feb this year and booked my services within 4 days! She’s actually church friends with a few of my brides. Her husband, Ben, actually saw their friends on my IG feed and got Sarah to find me. The most heart warming thing she told me during the trial was that if their friends think I’m good enough for them, I’m also good enough for her. Thanks for trusting your friends’ choice and also trusting me for your big day!
The top 2 photos were taken by me and also edited by me. Sarah has very healthy, thick and black hair so it’s not easy to see the texture on the hairstyle I created. Anyway, I’m also not one for messy hairstyles on black coloured hair because it just looks messy with no dimension. The hair photo above was edited under the guidance of Clara from The Perfect Statement 🙂
The photographer they engaged is Nathaniel from A Little Black Box. They’re from the same church so he knows the couple very well. From their interaction when he first stepped into the room, I can already tell Sarah was very comfortable in front of him.
He just casually sat down and chat with her which I think was really nice because brides can become jittery when people start arriving at their place. Usually, when it’s just me and the bride, it’s all chill and peaceful but once the PG arrives, it means it’s almost time the bridal party arrives as well. So, hiring a photographer who can calm your nerves and one whom you feel comfortable around is very important!
I was there when the unveiling happened and Ben was so funny. He actually asked if he should be the one unveiling Sarah. Everyone laughed at his question. Nathaniel’s reply was also quite epic, he cheekily replied if he should be the one doing it then. Hahaha. Really love such raw moments in the morning and you only get to witness this if you’re privileged enough to be part of the bridal party.
Sarah’s beautiful gown is from The Gown Connoisseur and I’m also very happy to announce that TGC is Lush Looks’ preferred partner now so all TGC brides get a little discount when you show me your invoice and if you confirm me first, you also get a token discount from TGC. Take note that you only get discount from one side.
Thanks Sarah and Ben for sharing these photos with me 🙂 It’s greatly appreciated. It feels like I went through their wedding with them. In fact, every weekend feels like I’m going through my own wedding over and over again. The fun, the excitement, the jitters, the anticipation, the tears are all part of my job and I feel so honoured to be able to go through these with my lovely brides. Thanks for having me!
