My Cousin’s Wedding
So the whole reason why I went down to Penang for the weekend was actually to attend my cousin’s wedding dinner (I’m stuck again in Singapore by the way). Rather than take a bus up north, which is a whopping 12 hour journey, I took a flight there instead. Here’s a confession though, that was my first time flying. So, yes, December 6th 2008 marked my first experience on an airplane.
I decided to pack along all my photography gear there… which isn’t much actually. My camera along with my flash unit and three lenses. It was quite heavy and I probably won’t do it again. Anyway, let’s get the photos rolling. Here’s the groom (my cousin) and the bride making their entrance into the restaurant.
The opening of the champagne. I seem to constantly have the chance to take photos of people having difficulty popping open that bottle like the time I covered for the SoC Gala Dinner.
And the compulsory toast with the never ending shouting of Yum Seng (like how you say cheers when you’re making a toast).
Didn’t take a lot of photos during the wedding dinner cause I didn’t want to get in the way of the official photographer. If you think this is not a big deal, think again. Here is a guy who’s trying to do his job and to deliver the goods he’s getting paid for. The last thing he needs is some annoying retard with a 400D constantly getting in his way.
Will be wrapping up the Penang trip with another entry and a few more photos of the dinner night.
