It was such a privilege to be Marina and Rob’s Wedding Photographer in Los Angeles. Their wedding took place on a perfect June day in Bel Air. I knew this wedding was going to be colourful but, wow – I wasn’t expecting it to be this stunning! The decorations around Sandra’s beautiful Bel Air home transformed it into a wedding venue that was elegant, stylish and colourful. There were huge swathes of purple, pink and red fabric draped above the seating area outside and votive candles were displayed in rich red glass which hung from chinese style branches. The attention to detail was incredible, and as the sun went down over the mountains everything turned even more magical! The swimming pool had rows and rows of fairy lights strung above illuminating the clusters of flowers floating on the water below. The wedding was a combination of several traditions: English, Chinese, and American…the groom arrived and had to “bargain” his way into the house to see his future Bride. This was no easy feat as the the bridesmaids had many forfeits for him to perform! Once inside, Sandra, the hostess, presented Rob and Marina with different foods representing something sweet, sour, bitter and hot. The next stage in the events was the tea ceremony where the elders in family are formally served chinese tea. After the tea ceremony it was time for Marina to get ready and change into her Bridal gown – a stunning red dress made by her dress designer in Singapore. It was such a privilege to be Marina and Rob’s wedding photographer and a pleasure to be part of their special day.
