Lynette was the wedding co-ordinator for the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Kuala Lumpur when she contacted me to cover her wedding to her fiance Hamish. They decided to honor the traditions of both their heritages, and decided to have both a Hindu temple wedding and Roman Catholic ceremony. For the temple wedding Lynette and her friends all dressed up in sarees and looked very elegant. The ceremony was at the Sri Sakthi Easwary Temple in SS3. The Roman Catholic wedding was held atÂ St Francis Xavier church (SFX) in Petaling Jaya. The wedding dinner banquet had to be held at only one place, Lynette’s place of work, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Their wedding was a joy to photograph and I still keep in contact with them.
For the photographers wanting to know what gear we were using in 2006, these photos were taken with the now rare Kodak Professional DCS Pro SLR/n, Canon 20D and the Nikon D200. Back then cameras really struggled with theÂ mixed sodium and flourescent lighting in SFX (which is still bad in 2013) so black and white was often the way to go.
