Meet Jasmine, our adorable Real Bride =D

Jasmine loves the outdoors, and she’s got that rich toned body of hers to prove it. Jasmine had her wedding at the Berjaya Langkawi Beach Resort – a perfect match for her and her ocean-loving husband, Matthias.

When she first came to Chiffon & Lace she vividly described her ideal wedding, along with plenty of pictures of the wedding dress designs that took her fancy. She has such a bubbly and outgoing personality, and it was a joy to work out the details with her. We were able to sketch her dream wedding gown – that special gown that would make people gawk, and go WOW!

Not even Matthias would see it until she walked down the wedding aisle – a special surprise for him (and of course everyone else too!). Her bridal gown is a body-hugging halter-neck consisting of carefully arranged french lace – a sexy combination of the revealing and the demure. A deep-V scalloped neckline and a splash of Swarovski crystals to the center of the bustline further complement the overall design. As part of the understated flamboyance of the dress, we made sure that the neckline, slit and hem all feature french lace. The translucent mid-section of the dress lends a certain exoticness to Jasmine – a sultry belly-dancer of the orient!

Finally, add a graceful 14-feet long-flowing train with a thigh-high slit and there you have it! An absolutely stunning bride!

The dress perfectly embodies Jasmine’s fun-loving and vivacious personality, as you can clearly see from the pictures. We are truly happy that we were part of her wedding day!

We would also like to thank Kenneth Tan from Fabulous Chapters for providing these beautiful and memorable images. Here’s the link to his website: http://www.fabulouschapter.com/blog/

Our Real Bride this month is youthful Suan Bee :)

She put in a lot of time on her gym routine and it really shows – she was in great physical shape. That great body of hers and her sweet smile was our first impression of Suan Bee – and a design inspiration for us too! It would have to be a bridal gown that could flaunt those curves of hers and enhance her youthful look.

Chiffon & Lace designed Suan Bee’s wedding dress as fit-and-flare chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline and chiffon-pleated bustier. The neckline is adorned with a hand-made organza flower. The wedding gown is figure-hugging, her slim waistline accentuated by the pearls and hand-crafted French lace appliques attached to the bodice. A pair of chiffon drapes that flows down from the neckline to her upper back adds further volume to the dress. The entire look is completed with a chiffon train that overlays the flare bottom, beginning from where the chiffon drapes meet at the back of the dress. The soft chiffon train is specially designed for her grand entrance on her wedding day. It is also detachable for the sake of convenience.

Chiffon & Lace thanks Suan Bee for sharing her gorgeous engagement photos with us. You can see her wonderful dress in the pictures taken in Penang Loke Mansion and Hard Rock Hotel by Danny Chew.

The dress perfectly suits her and complements her curves from every angle – even from the back! We are proud to be a part of making her wedding day a very special and memorable one.

Kenneth sees with an artist flair. His style of photography is to keep things natural and always alert to capture the intimacy and details unobtrusively.  Kenneth specializes in creating one-of-a-kind fine art pieces for discerning clients who value individuality and artistry. The vision and efforts have not gone unnoticed. In the past 2 years, Kenneth has garnered 5 top three awards from US-based Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) among many other accolades.

————————————-

C&L: How would you describe your style of photography and where do you draw your inspiration from?

Kenneth: I’ve been described as a spontaneous person and gives attention to details. Inspirations may come naturally on the spot due to the activities or surroundings. However I always try to learn from great photographers like Marcus Bell and Cliff Mautner as well as gains inspirations from movies.

 

C&L: Is there a place where you would love to photograph a wedding but haven’t yet?

Kenneth: I’m blessed to be able to photograph many beautiful weddings around the world but I still enjoy shooting the most in my own country, the fascinating multi-cultured Malaysia. Growing up in a home with a small piece of land for rice paddy and fishes in Penang, I always wish to go back to my hometown for wedding shoots. It is simple and full of happiness without extravagance of a professional setting. I also hope to use this way to give back to the society that I grew up in.

 

C&L: What can a bride do to prepare for their wedding photography?

Kenneth: Stay relaxed, it brings out their personality, and of course enjoy the photo shoot!
C&L: Any advice for the couple on how to select a photographer who best suits them?

Kenneth: It is essential to select a photographer based on their shooting style. It will be even better if they are able to choose one they feel “easy to click with” and later become friends. It is my opinion that good wedding photos are usually not created under client-and-service-provider relationship.

 

C&L: Can you share one tip that you have found useful to your photography?

Kenneth: Great photos are not taken with eyes, but with love, passion and imagination; this is the simple belief I always based on.

Photographer: Jenny Sun

The stunning wedding pictures were taken by Jenny Sun, an amazingly talented photographer known for her simple yet expressive style. As the daughter of an avid travel photographer and a professional in the design industry, creative images have been an integral part of her life for as long as she can remember.

Jenny first began her foray into the field in 2000, where she dabbled in black-and-white film, touching myriad subjects – still lifes, landscapes, architecture – before being lured (charmed, one might say) by weddings and the people who attend them.

“There is just something magically arresting about catching people, their expressions, their emotions, within the frame. I love the buzz of being there to seize those moments that they will remember and want to keep for the rest of their lives. My philosophy is that the best photos should inspire you, move you, and rock your senses! They should speak volumes about you, and showcase all the nuances that make your love story unique.”

Jenny is ever-ready and waiting to capture the most candid and intimate moments of the lovebirds’ day. Her unobtrusive approach, coupled with an almost obsessive need for detail, means that all the couple has to do is to kick-back and have fun!

It is this fresh and honest approach to her work, seeing the world through her romance-tinted lenses, that has won the hearts of many couples spanning the globe. She is well-traveled, her clientele spanning both East and West.

Chiffon & Lace got together with Jenny Sun to give her a short interview about her work.

——————

C&L: Is there a place where you would love to shoot a wedding but haven’t yet?

Jenny: Oh, so many! I would love to shoot on a real rustic farm with horses! And somewhere in Canada, Switzerland, or New Zealand where there are mountains, lakes and meadows all in one area! :D

C&L: What can a bride do to prepare for their photo shoot?

Jenny: Choose a visual theme and communicate that with the photographer from the start through to the finish before the shoot :) Then research research research on images and things that will make that visual theme come to life! :) It’s amazing what ideas can come out through the research process, and how much your photographer can help advise what will or will not work.

C&L: Any advice for the couple on how to select a photographer who best suits them?

Jenny: Choose a photographer whos work you really LOVE (not just like or think is okay), and who you connect with on a personal level. That connection is really important as the better the chemistry between photographer and client, the better the photos turn out. It has ALWAYS been the case from my experience :)
