Yes and Oyen’s wedding portraits at Ciao Restaurant

Yes and Oyen called me to be the wedding photographer for their wedding at Ciao Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. It was a dream come true for Yes as she had been eyeing me up to cover her wedding for close on 7 years! Only problem was no groom(!) a common problem these days. Then Oyen popped into her life and sure enough after checking dates it was fantastic that we could cover Yes’s big day!  This is the new Ciao. I had shot several weddings at the old one…some of them so long ago that everything was FILM based(!?!) This newer venue is really pleasant and the wedding was a small intimate affair with close friends and family. Everyone at the table was able to give a speech and many were very touching. As both Yes and Oyen are in the music industry, along with several of their guests, there were some lovely songs “gifted” to the couple, one of which was written specifically for them. A great wedding and one of those I will treasure the memories of for a very long time.
