The weather was perfect for a gorgeous wedding. The sun was shinning, beaming past the mountains. The glow of the leaves in the vineyard gave a fresh feel to the atmosphere. And the plans of Roff, the groom’s brother was rolling off to a great start. In Switzerland, as I understand the couple does very little for the wedding. Its all up to a friend or wedding planner or in this case the best man to plan the wedding. The couple just have to enjoy the day and trust that all will be well. I feel it takes a whole different level of trust to let that happen. The fun part of the whole experience is that Marcel and Shi Hui had 2 days of surprises one after another as they had absolutely no clue what was going to happen. Even myself as the photographer was only informed like 30 mins before the actual surprise happened. Not what I am used to but it definitely kept me on my toes!
Shu Hui had to ditch her 1990s luxury Bentley for a 4 wheeled pull-cart powered by 4 of Marcel’s friends. They then marched up an aisle lined with all their guest holding heart sharped balloons, these helium filled beauties were let free when the couple walked to the end and painted the bright blue sky red and white. It was such an awesome sight! The next surprise installed was a huge heart drawn on a piece of red cloth that the newly wed was supposed to cut out and walk through. After the delicious herb crusted lamb main, a close friend of Shi Hui hosted a Q&A about Shi Hui, for Marcel and his friends, to let everyone get to know Shi Hui the Singaporean a little better. Just before desserts, Roff arranged for a magician to entertain all the guests. Everyone also had to contribute an artwork on a piece of canvas divided into 48 squares, one for each guest as a present for the couple.
All in all I had a blast capturing these wonderful moments of Marcel, Shi Hui, their friends and family enjoying the whole event.
