2 Weddings

0909 ~ is an auspicious month to tie the knot. On my recent home trip, I've had 2 weddings to attend in a single day, on the 19th. I had only managed to attend the morning wedding reception of my old friend & ex-schoolmate, Marvin at St. Thomas Church. He's travelled all the way home from Dubai, to marry his sweet heart.

Congrats, Marv & Ivy... that's a lovely nest to start a new family! =D

On that night, I was another wedding reception & dinner, that of my cousin, Ian's. He too flew back from overseas; from Aussie to be exact, to wed his beloved who originates from Singapore, & coincidentally goes by the name of Ivy as well. The wedding dinner was held at 4 Points Hotel, Sheraton with almost half of the congregation from different continents; it was quite an international affair. It boasts a very grand ballroom, but unfortunately the dim-lit ambiance wasn't lighting-friendly to my speedlite-less DSLR with standard kit lens, hence I've only got a handful of photos to show...

The highlight of the event was the charming rendition of a duet (i couldn't recall the name of the song) followed by a ballroom dance by the bride & bridegroom. Congrats, Ian & Ivy! =)

=) well, not often do we get to see the bride & bridegroom in action on the dance floor... that was the highlight of the night! had to B&W the photo coz it was taken using relatively high ISO settings at 800, rendering the actual image very noisy...
