Stunning Chinese Styled wedding on Penang Hill

Wedding on Penang Hill

Amy and Henry’s wedding ceremony and dinner were on top of Penang hill. They had a TROPICAL 60’s theme. This wedding was notable for absolutely STUNNING views coupled with what has to be the most precarious tea ceremony I have covered so far. I was hanging on from the out side of the small venue.

Gaven and Joyce’s wedding day was a mix of traditional Chinese tea ceremonies in the morning followed by a poolside wedding at the Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Afterwards dinner was held in the Grand Ballroom.

Please note the following images have been transferred from my old site when we were all “Internet load speed” compromised. That’s a fancy way of saying that they are of lower resolution than more recent weddings. Think of them as being “mobile device optimized” as they should look great on your phone screen.

Celine and Frazer’s wedding was at the Holy Rosary Church in Brick fields. It was a VERY WET morning as you will be able to see from the photos. After completing portraits at the church we went back for the traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony and then moved on to the Le Meridian Kuala Lumpur in Sentral for the dinner banquet.

Sugi and Viji’s Wedding at the Accord Metropolitan Hotel in Chennai, India

Sugi called me from Canada to ask if I could be the photographer for her wedding in Kerala, India, where they had chosen a beautiful resort for the wedding. For those who have not been to Kerala, it is very beautiful and green, very similar to Malaysia in many ways with lots of jungle and rubber plantations. As the date got closer something came up so the venue was switched to the Accord Metropolitan hotel in the middle of Chennai (Madras). This posed some challenges as the Sapphire room which is where the wedding would happen was a windowless room deep in the basement with zero natural lighting and fairly poorly lit, making it probably one of the more difficult venues we had shot in up to that date. Considering we were using the Nikon D300 at that time, coupled with that camera not being known for it’s great low light performance, the wedding shoot would pose a challenge or two.

Happily the photos did come out well. Partly because we shoot in RAW format (I have posted elsewhere the reasons why you should never hire a photographer who is a jpeg only shooter) and partly because we brought additional studio lighting gear.

Once the wedding was over we did some portrature around the hotel. As it’s located the middle of Chennai, a massive bustling, noisy and dusty city, we did portraits both in and outside the building.

As a photographer, I would have to say I do like photographing weddings in India. It was my second trip, the first being a 7 week stint travelling through Hyderabad, Madurai, Trivandrum, Cochin and Chennai. We have had inquiries to be the wedding photographers for weddings in Delhi, Jaipur, and Jodhpur. Maybe we can shoot either yours or your friend’s wedding in the future?
