It was a very dimly-lit afternoon at about 1430hrs… we finally reached Potong Pasir. We were greeted by a green painted door and as the couple unlocked the grill for us, we looked at each other (Adrian & Alvin) and gave a wide smile… Settling ourselves down, we started discussion on briefing on the save the date concept. And it was not long before we have to start doing what we do best – messing up the bride’s room for a 30min shoot. While we were messing up the room, we started chatting when the groom and he too found it eccentric that the first time he first visited his bride’s house, he too felt curious why her door is green and even her walls are green in colour, it was not long we all broke into laughter and that broke the ice for all of us….
The couple was very friendly and they totally liked our concept which we started off gearing up and preparing our first scene; that was when we heard some whining and squeaking. It’s her pet hammy(hamster)!!! It is ssoooooo cute….. And it was diagnosed with tumor and the vet had to burst it (OUCH!). As a result, it was under shock and it started moving radically all over the bed. That was our first scene for that concept -.-|||
Our concept was built around the true story where the groom proposed in sentosa with the help of his many friends…. He simply wants to melt her down in romance with that moment of the light sticks – So we scaled and incorporate it into a “Will you marry me?” luminous wordings on the sandy beach. And that’s what as call a very romantic effort that we were very proud of! *LOL*
The big day started where the brothers and sisters gathered in their respective places… and of course we were early .
Sharon welcomed us and soon we started our shooting on the green door and the sisters started preparations. We saw caramels, sheets of yoga posture, hair bands, the essentials of 酸甜苦辣, and something extremely eye-catching – the petai beans… which are indeed bitter enough…
We woke Stephan up…. And he started telling how he liked our videos and the concept shoot he had with us, and it’s not long we are doing a leg shot when he brother arrived…. Immediately there was this awkward moment…. His bro said “Wah bro what u doing? In your underwear and a guy kneeling in front of you…” Indeed it sounds too wrong. Finishing up all the stuffs, we loaded ourselves into the bridal car and the convey shot off into the morning light for Sharon’s house at a speed no one can imagine (we leave that to your imagination…)
Upon reaching the brides’ house, the sisters were at the stairways looking at the brothers gathering in. summoning them all in, we started with a few light “ice-breakers” after which we went ahead with the酸甜苦辣. What was unique was the ‘hot treatment’ where the jellos were filled with chilli padi and seeds. Gosh!!! Few of the brother actually finished 2 and another threw it over the balcony! We caught that on film!!! ‘sweet treatment’ was simply eating hot caramel. And what made us remember the most was what one sister actually said: “do you know how high class is this?” And that brought our high-class act to the next level, where we were the first to witness the act of “fire-in-the-hole”. It is simply to stuck one petai bean into the nostrils and blow with one’s might in vain to hit the target (watch our SDE).
After all these activities and dancing, the groom managed to reach the bride and it was almost over before we hit the park to do an outdoors shoot. At the park while gathering the brothers and sisters, we soon realized there were 10 brothers and 10 sisters…. That makes 10 fists 10 beauties or 十拳十妹 (十全十美)…
The last shot of the couple and the brothers and sisters, we took on where the groom was tossed into the air and the sisters and bride looked on…. No, the groom did not end up on the ground…
Dinner was very eventful it was not long before we finished all our chores and we wanted to call it a day. The couple was so sweet, so kind, so thoughtful and so nice that they took a photo with us.
Thank you Stephan and Sharon for choosing us and thank you for allow Unique Colours to paint a memorable page in your lives. May you have a blessing and everlasting marriage… CHEERS!
