The Wedding of Justin & Kelly

When I was growing up, my mom used to always tell me that what matters most is having inner beauty and to always-always treat people with respect and to treat people right. It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a guy; inner beauty should and can be found in every single person and to sound like a cliché quote, everyone is beautiful in their own be it whatever size, shape, height, color they are or will mold into their adulthood.

Inner beauty to me is how you treat others and care for the people you have around you. It is also how you learn to sacrifice yourself to love and put other people’s needs before yours and is able to also love and care for those who are lesser than yourself. It doesn’t matter if you have a thousand friends on social media but what matters is the impact that you are giving others to genuinely love their existence in your life and to care for them through their ups and downs.

“Kelly does not have a single mean bone in her body” said Kelly’s MOH, the night of her reception. She proceeded to list out a list of things that embodies Kelly’s individuality and how her kindness towards people shines through so bright that it certainly attracted Justin towards her. Many people hope to seek for a love at first sight – over the moon – under the stars type of love in their life which is absolutely possible for some but not for everyone.

A lot of the relationships and marriages that I’ve known and seen personally were strongly developed through time with a solid foundation of friendship, communication and above all amazing inner beauty qualities. Every single time I ask each couple I meet of how they knew they were the right person for them to spend the rest of their lives with, they don’t start saying how beautiful he or her eyes are, or how radiant his or her skin is but they start to list out incredible virtues of one another. Some would say that she has been there for him during the tough times, or how unbelievably gentle and caring he is towards her family or even just how enduring she is with her friends and family or how hardworking and determined he is with his work and the amount of commitment that he invests in all of his relationships with people. Most of the time, they would list out beautiful merits that comes from deep inner beauty.

Justin himself is also a man of his word, a kind man who cares deeply for his friends and family and certainly compliments Kelly’s inner beauty. Besides having such charming qualities in their personalities, Justin and Kelly are also just as beautiful with their outer beauty! Justin with his hearty handshake and cheeky grin who is always up for a good conversation and Kelly with her exceedingly sweet smile and endearing laughter (who laughed at my lame jokes during our few meetings out of kindness – haha!) this two good looking couple radiates both ways, inner and outer and I couldn’t imagine two better people than them to end up together and spending the rest of their lives until they turn old and grey.

The Wedding of Jin Ern & Sarah

The minute I shook hands and said hello to Jin Ern and Sarah on a early Saturday morning (one of the rare Saturdays that Nigel and his team wasn’t shooting a wedding) I felt immediately at ease as we pulled our chairs closer to the table and had a seat and began ordering our breakfast. They were the type of couple that immediately exudes a warm personality as we continued to chat over a hearty breakfast. We laughed and exchanged personal anecdotes; I stirred my hot Milo and took a big sip of it thoroughly enjoying myself in their company. I knew then, it was going to be a very enjoyable wedding day to be a part of and we couldn’t wait for it.

They shared with us their journey of being in relationship and being in love with each other for the last 7 years and here they are, finally tying the knot and to be man and wife with God as their rock and anchor throughout the rest of their lives together. As Sarah chattered merrily away with us about her plans for her wedding day in terms of decor, I couldn’t help but sneak a peek at Jin Ern, and there he was seated right next to her and was gazing at her with a smile. It was truly the look of content from Jin Ern and then on their wedding day, I saw the same look on Jin Ern’s face as he saw her walking down the aisle mixed with unbelievable bliss and pride.

One of my favourite moments was when he had officially “picked” Sarah from her room and brought her downstairs as the bridal party cheered them on and Jin Ern stood there with his head held high and chest pumped up with THE biggest grin on his face and immense pride that he is blessed enough to have Sarah as his wife as she stood by his side roaring with laughter in the moment.

That was exactly how their wedding day was. It was continuous laughter from the newly wed and their friends filling up the room every moment of the day. Down to the games, the dance, the songs and the singing all the way through, it was one heck of a wedding!

What really touched me amid everything that happened on their wedding day was when Sarah shared during their exchange of vows that Jin Ern had always told her love was a choice and that she never truly comprehended the full meaning of it until recently. It really resonated with me because I’ve always-always lived by that saying.

I’ve always said that love is a choice to my friends. It is an active choice that you have to make to stay in love. You have to choose to love. You have to choose to forgive and forget. You have to choose to remain faithful and you have to choose to learn how to be thankful and be grateful for your partner. And when you stand before God and promise each other to be there for one another till the day you part, you are saying that you choose to stand by them no matter what happens, no matter what version of a person they are or will become, you are saying that you choose to want to be with them until the day you return to God together and until that day happens, you are saying that you choose to be there through the journey as God sharpens, shapes and mould you and it’s a promise that says I want to be the one that sees you in your perfect form in heaven.

Here is an excerpt from one of my favourite Christian marriage articles:
“The Bible does describe love as a feeling. But rather than beginning as a feeling that inspires an action, love is often first an action based on obedience to God that results in a feeling. This explains why the Bible commands husbands to love their wives (Eph. 5:25) and wives to love their husbands (Titus 2:4) rather than commanding them to feel loving. This further explains why the Bible even commands us to love our enemies (Matt. 5:43–47).”

And that really reminded me of how I agree with what Jin Ern says. Because during the down and challenging times, we have to choose to let certain things go. We have to choose to forgive and move on. We also have to choose to have sacrificial compromise for one another. It will never be easy but it will be worth it and when those stormy season comes along, I have no doubt that Jin Ern and Sarah will stand through it hand in hand with God in the middle of their marriage as they learn to continuously love and respect each other as husband and wife and as they journey on to Australia, I wish them nothing but the best and all the happiness in the world.

The Wedding of Joshua & Tiffanie

Joshua and Tiffanie lived the kind of love story I adored reading growing up. They found a love that very
few people out there found in their lifetime. They ended up being each other’s first and last love in their life.

After a very-very long, challenging, emotional, enduring good 13 years of being together, they finally tied the knot.

Trust me when I say, the minute they announced their engagement, the first words on everyone’s lips
was “Finally” or “About time!”. Everyone couldn’t be more thrilled to finally being able to see these two
love birds walking down the aisle. Joshua and Tiffanie have been together for a total of 13 years and out
of the 13 years they had spent their entire time apart in a long distance relationship.

They had gone though unimaginable ups and downs throughout the relationship, bearing the obstacles,
figuring their way together but with Christ as their anchor and rock in the middle of their
relationship, all things was possible with faith, love and a whole lot of trust.

When I think of Joshua and Tiffanie’s relationship, it helps reminds me that with trust, with communication,
with compromise, with the willingness of wanting to love in a sacrificial way by putting your partners
needs before yours, every relationship always stands with a fighting chance to actually blossom and
“make it” to the finishing line. It is telling each other that you love them, flaws and all that you are taking
their hand to walk to the end of the journey together and that even with all the flaws in the world within
them, you can’t wait to witness and see what God has in store for the both of you and of His plans.

You can’t wait to see what and how God will mold them to be the man/woman He intends you to be
and you can’t wait to be right by his/her side when it happens to see the finished work.

They also remind me that despite having oceans apart, any issues can be solved as long as there is a
forgiving heart, a trusting heart, a loving heart, a lot of hard work and a willingness to try to make
things right as a team and that distance isn’t even in the equation posing as a setback in the first place.

I admit, when I watched their pre-wedding video as they told us and shared with us of how they met,
fell in love, got through their challenging times when being apart and how they got by and to see all of
their memories flash before my eyes of just how amazing their love grew over the years, I had tears
running down my cheeks. Dramatic, I know. But being the emotional sap I am, I couldn’t help but
loving their love. I couldn’t help but admire and love the persistence and commitment they gave to each other.

Watch their pre-wedding film here:

As I stood and watched Tiffanie walked down the aisle looking so incredibly radiant in her white dress,
I wiped a quiet tear away. (I get REALLY emotionally at weddings). She looked incredible not just
because of her stunning dress, classy hairdo or perfect make up but because she looked so
tremendously blissful. The way she looked at Joshua and gave her promises to him was touching.

The way Joshua looked at her as she walked down the aisle, you could see just how much joy and love
that was bursting from his heart and when he also stood and gaze at her promising his love for her,
nothing else in the room existed for them. We all melted and faded away into a distance for they
only had eyes for each other and they couldn’t wait to start their journey as man and wife and I have
no doubt that they will take on for whatever curve ball that marriage and life throws at them, they will
be able to get by it, with Christ in their marriage and their unfailing commitment and love for one another.

Watch their Highlight below and do prepare some tissues just in case! :)

The Wedding of Kristian & Mellissa

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to have my path crossed with Mellissa years ago.  It was through the
blogging sphere that we made our acquaintance and exchange friendly hellos with one another.

Mellissa is never without the biggest and sweet smile on her face whenever I see her at events and our short
conversations are never without a warm hug and a kind word of compliment from her.

I remember clearly that most of our conversations, though short and brief at an event she had always
asked how I was doing and was sincerely interested to know just what I’ve been up to with my life
and I’ve always enjoyed the time I had speaking with her. We kept in touch on social media ever
since despite rarely seeing one another, but we chat quite a bit on our digital platforms.

Despite not knowing Mellissa on a very personal or intimate level, she’s pretty much an open book.
What you see is what you get. You can tell right off the bat the type of person she is.

You’ll know how big and generous her heart is, you’ll also be able to tell how determined and passionate she can
be with her goals and work and that when she sets her mind to something, she doesn’t stop until she achieves it.

I’ve always admired her from afar as I see her successfully progress from various  companies, hearing about her work
experiences and advises whenever we had the chance to chat and catch up
and it also motivates me to never give up on the path that I was on.

Mellissa never gives up. She chases what she believes in and above all, Mellissa believed in love.

She loves ‘LOVE’. The idea of it, the notion of it and she is never pessimistic when it comes to love.

Mellissa searched for it and she knew in the deepest of her heart
that she’ll know the right one when she found it and she found all of it in Kristian.

Most people spend a lifetime searching for the kind of love that Kristian and Mellissa have. The kind of love that knows
no bounds, that breaks all barriers and the kind of love that balances everything out.

Kristian laid eyes on Mellissa and knew how special she was and that there are so much more than meets the eye
and he knew she was special and will be special in his eyes for the rest of his life.

He knew that this was the girl that he was going to keep safe and happy no matter what it takes as
he proudly stood at the altar looking at her with so much love and grace in his eyes.

She ‘gets’ him and he ‘gets’ her and they were so blissful in celebrating the love they had found and
blossomed between them and will now vow to never stop loving each other
and to always stand by each other’s side for whatever comes, better or for worst they
know they can get through anything together as long as they have one another.


Thank you so much Kristian and Mellissa for having us capture and be part of your day!
The team and I wish you both all the happiness, joy and love in life! – Nigel
