Wedding planning: The importance of brothers and sisters for your wedding

It's always a blessing to be part of my couple's wedding. You can see them both Rayner and Genevieve working towards their dream wedding. This wedding has been one year in the planning and it was hosted at one of the most iconic building in Singapore, the Alkaff Mansion. The beautiful colonial architecture serves as a indication of Singapore's colonial past. It was both their dream wedding. Especially with them both loving vintage-chic theme. And this was one of their reason for having me cover their wedding as their wedding photographer - I love vintage and I love rendering my photos in film signature. But most importantly, they love the candid, non posey shots. 

The garden solemnization was planned for at 6 pm and it started pouring rather heavily at around 5.30 pm. Guests were making their way in. The rain did not dampen the guests spirit in any way.

This was perhaps one of the biggest stress test for the groom and yet it was perhaps one of the sweetest moment I was able to witness. The bride was distraught. Rayner took control of the situation and try to assure Gen as much as he could including checking the weather forecast and thankfully, my wife informed me our place was raining earlier and it has since cleared. Rayner decided to delay the solemnization instead of shifting the setup from the garden to indoor. Gen wanted some space alone in this private corner in Alkaff Mansion. Sisters and brothers came in every now and then to assure her and to update her on the situation but most importantly, to keep the option of having both indoor and outdoor solemnization open. And thankfully the rain started easing up. And there you have it, the beautiful smile that came after the rain.

This one's for you, brothers and sisters out there for your silent support!
