Pei Wen and Jeng Wei’s Outdoors Themed Pre-Wedding Shoot in Nature
Pei Wen and Jeng Wei embarked on an adventurous outdoors themed pre-wedding shoot in Nature at an industrial park and the results were simply beautiful.
The first time Pei Wen and Jeng Wei met, they were blindfolded and given the task of getting to know each other, only to be asked to identify each other based on what they had learned about one another. Through that experience, the pair grew closer and eventually became an item. To commemorate their love, Pei Wen and Jeng Wei decided to embark on an outdoors themed pre-wedding shoot in nature and when Timothy from The Good Citizen suggested a newly discovered venue, they were all for it!
How did the two of you meet?
We met during our university hall freshman orientation camp. We were from different orientation groups but we were each other’s secret partner, so when we first met, we were blindfolded while seated across each other on the beach. It was quite an interesting experience as we spent our first interaction by introducing each other and learning more about the other person without knowing we looked like for over an hour.
The next day, we had to find out who our secret partner was based on what we had learned, and we successfully identified each other easily, of course!
What was it about your partner that attracted you?
Pei Wen: I was attracted to his personality; he is funny, caring, hardworking, persistent and reliable. But what I love most about him is how he always looks out for me and takes time to be with me even when he is busy.
Jeng Wei: I am abit more superficial, I was initially drawn to her sweet looks, but as I interacted with her more, I found out that she was also very caring, thoughtful, filial and kind-hearted.
She also has a very cute (and sometimes silly) side to her that never fails to brighten up my day!
How did Jeng Wei propose to you?
Pei Wen: Jeng Wei proposed at the Rain Vortex in Changi Jewel on Boxing Day in 2020. He got our friends to help set up the proposal area while we were having dinner. After dinner, Jeng Wei led me to the Rain Vortex under the pretext of catching the 9:30 p.m. light show. As we neared the venue, I noticed a flight of stairs decorated with fairy lights and we decided to go closer to check it out. Then, I realised that there was a row of photographs attached to the fairy lights, and they were our photographs! Following the length of the fairy lights, I discovered a “Marry Me” sign on a bench with a heart on the floor.
Then, Jeng Wei knelt down in the middle of the heart with a bouquet of flowers and the ring in his hand as he popped the question. I said “Yes” of course, and the crowd that had gathered around us cheered! It was such a magical moment for us. Just then, the lights dimmed and the light show started, and we watched on, savouring every moment of that event.
Tell us about your pre-wedding shoot!
We wanted an outdoors themed pre-wedding shoot in nature and when Timothy from The Good Citizen suggested a newly discovered place with plenty of excavators, we were all for it! On the day of the shoot, we were all looking forward to the main attraction, the excavators, but when we arrived at the venue, there were none left! It was quite a funny experience.
Undeterred, we decided to be adventurous and make do with what we have and created magic with our talented photographer. Now that we look back at it, it may have actually been a blessing in disguise that created the opportunity for us to take a closer look at the beauty of the things around us.
Share with us some memorable/funny moments you had during the shoot.
The entire experience was extremely memorable, walking around in our wedding gown and suit at an industrial area drew upon many onlookers that did a double take with puzzled looks. But the outcome of the shoot was amazing! Thus, never judge a book by its cover, because sometimes, the most unimaginable places for a photoshoot may turn out to be a gem.
Do you have any advice for couples who are planning their pre-wedding shoot?
The most important element for the pre-wedding shoot would be the photographer, so it is always advisable to engage an experienced and professional photographer who can help take a load off your shoulder by giving you suggestions, advice, reminders and tips on what you should do and prepare for the shoot.
