    Bridal Photoshoot In Taiwan (Behind The Scenes)


    Yes, that's the country hubby and I headed to get our bridal photoshoot done. We signed up photography package with one of the most well-known bridal shop there (that's what I heard from other locals there). I was just lucky to spot it and it was a fluke.

    There's no time to tour around.

    Just touched down at Taoyuan, Taiwan and we gotta head to the shop at Jhongli directly already. Everything there is so beautiful like a fairytale, I can just live there.

    That's Tina Lin, the PR who recruited us to sign the package back in Malaysia.

    The bridal shop there doesn't look like it at all. Looks more like a luxury restaurant. That's the most original bubble tea from Taiwan that Tina treated us as she promised.

    Different types of albums and frames displayed for selection.

    The fitting room. Yes, the signboard says that we are not allowed to take pictures but we did anyway.

    That's Becky helping me pick gowns.

    Gowns shortlisted by Becky based on her recommendations.

    Some of the gowns look really good when hung up but when I tried it on, it's an entirely different story. They don't compliment by skinny figure.

    For example this gown. It looks okay on the hanger but on me... it looks rather old-fashioned and makes my waist looks long but legs look short. Just doesn't feel right.

    (We took these pictures while Becky was away picking out more gowns for me to try =p)

    Trying on more gowns...

    More gowns on the rack.

    Obviously, hubby didn't manage to take pictures of me trying on ALL the gowns shortlisted because Becky was there!

    After picking out the gowns we talked with the photographer and stylist/MUA to discuss on our preferences. We had our dinner in that shop. Oh... tiring.

    The next day, comes the most tiring and challenging day... the photoshoot day!

    Still looking at other sample albums as my last minute preparation.

    Shop's front.

    Us with zero make-up and hair gel.

    Amber, the assistant stylist for the day helped crimp my hair for easy teasing.

    With tired eyes and no make-up on, I looked like a ghost bride -_-".

    Here comes my saviour, the MUA cum stylist... Ellen!

    The bride beside me has her hair rolled up like 'bao zhou po' HOHOHOHO!

    Hubby getting his make-up done. LOL, sounds so wrong.

    Tadaa! The end result! Love it!

    Heading out to our first outdoor location.

    Second location. Another fairytale dreamy sceneries.

    Ellen performing her magic again!

    We went to the shop to start the day very early in the morning, but it was already evening when we're done with ourdoor shootings. We still have indoors to do. Gosh...

    Some pretty good waves Ellen did on my hair.

    And she made me pose for pictures towards hubby's camera.

    And so, we wrapped up the shoot with the crew.

    Comes the following day, we went back to the shop to select pictures.

    Some of my friends and family members asked what inspired me to custom make my ring's design. Well... this is the inspiration behind the design.

    I am a big fan of Sailormoon, the storyline is like a girl's fantasy. So this explains right?

    Previously blogged is about my pre-wedding photoshoot done locally. Next up will be about my actual bridal photoshoot done overseas. Stay tuned to see my wedding album!

    Pre-Wedding Photoshoot, Putrajaya

    Taken on 12th June, 2010 but can only release them on Facebook after my wedding ceremony and dinner on 22nd October, 2011.

    There were many photos taken but these are shortlisted as one of the best for each angle and pose. This will be a photo loaded post with minimal words.

    A close-up picture of our rings. Hubby's ring is selected off the catalogue from a common jeweller. While mine is custom designed by me. It's my dream to have a wedding ring of this design. Searched everywhere for it but to no avail. So we decided to get is custom made. Totally worth it and love it!

    I'm sure I have mentioned in previous posts before, I DIY-ed the hand bouquet. This same hand bouquet was used for my ROM, pre-wedding photoshoot and actual day of wedding ceremony. It is now permanently displayed at my house in a display cabinet as memorabilia.

    The photo below serves as the finale.

    Photographer : Shivan & friends
    Make-up & Hairdo : Myself
    Accessories : My own
    Props : Photographers' & my own

    Outfits : Our own, the short puffy gown is custom made from

    Pre-Wedding Photoshoot (Behind The Scenes)

    Title is self-explanatory. Will be a photoloaded post.

    This photoshoot is all about fun and happy moments, 10 photographers + assistants of their own, few helpers and spectators of my own and 1 inch thick of face paint on myself.

    The next post will be the pictures taken from this shoot.

    OPI I Lily Love You

    Bought a bottle of OPI I Lily Love You from the Nice Stems collection.

    It's a sheer clear pink tone with random shaped holograms!

    My new nails.

    Base colour is a single coat of Pedal Faster Suzi, and two coats of I Lily Love You. I feel that this picture didn't do the actual thing justice because the real thing definitely looks way more outstanding than this.

    I Lily Love You makes any base colour appear pinkier and it evens out on its own upon application. Dries very quickly too! Drying time is so much less. But you will have to put on at least double coatings of it in order to have more holograms on your nails. You will also have to apply a thicker layer of top coat compared to normal to smoothen the surface due to the presence of holograms or it wouldn't look and feel that smooth and professionally manicured on.

    Removal is a breeze. Of course, the colour goes off and the bigger chunks of holograms will still stay after just one round of removal, but it goes of very easily too within the second time you remove them while applying more light pressures. Definitely lasts longer and easier to remove than those from the OPI Burlesque collection.
