Wedding at the Holy Spirit Church, Greenlane, Penang and banquet at the Park Royal Batu Ferringhi

Jaclyn and Michael’s wedding was held in the Roman Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit, Greenlane, Penang.  It was a smaller wedding but loads of fun as everyone knew each other. Jaclyn had a beautiful dress as you can see in her portraits. The other nice touch was on her shoes in the very first photo below. Very cute 🙂

The  portraits were mostly conducted at the very crowded Batu Ferringhi Beach. (Some claim it is where “First Contact” originally happened 🙂 ). Lots of congratulations were given to Michael and Jaclyn but it was a bit of a challenge to find anywhere without capturing a myriad of sun worshippers enjoying the beach in the background. We had to get creative with the sky and the lighting. People who follow me know we have been using radio activated strobes for close to 15 years now. That experience came in useful for the portraits!

Dinner was held at the Park Royal hotel as was the tea ceremony which punctuated the banquet through out the evening. I have other tea ceremony photos on the site so for the sake of space am not posting any here today.

Finally I would like to point out how unobtrusive we are at weddings. Have a look at the church ceremony photos below. I mention this specifically as at two weddings we did last month the grooms mum and best man  both thanked us that we were not in the way or obtrusive. I have become increasingly aware that this is a problem with a fair number of younger and less experienced photographers. Anyway, we believe the day is about you so we try our best to be the fly on the wall.

Michael and Jaclyn’s entrance. Quick note: The purple and green tinges are from the increasingly popular LED lights that are being put into many hotels.
These make colour correcting skin tones a bit of a chore and why we use external radio controlled strobe lighting.
