Seems like we have quite a bit in common! ( Silhouette, Minda and Kim..
).Sorry to hear about your pre-wedding day sickness, did it affect your wedding day ...but you must be real glad it's all over..
My hotel in Ritz, did you have yours there too?? Would be having the church ceremony at Chijmes, hence thinking of using Steffi's for the Chijmes decor as well, and now with what you shared about Steffi's, just reconfirmed my plans..!
( even though I have not spoken to anyone from Steffi's ) .
As for the photos, actually wanted to do the Compassphotos Melbourne shoot, as I really wanted a cool weather to do the shoot. But the costs and the dates ( too early to get my gown made, and had to rent one real quickly if I wanna go) made me think otherwise. Friends then recommended Benny, and I went down to meet him. Photos wise, I actually like Chris's better, but found Benny friendlier and easy to work with, and like you said, he has a romantic feel to his photos which I kinda like ... So still pretty undecided..
. Sounds like you had lotsa fun in Sydney ! Mind if you describe the EG you were wearing for the Sydney shoot , so I can go check it out at the female website.. I saw some of the shots at Kim's website and think they look wonderful...
Do you mean you had Kim for B& W and another photographer for colour? Thot Kim provided 2 albums of colour also? Gosh, you must have spent a fortune on photography...I didn't ask Kim to do the studio shots as his are more posed and arty, and I wanted a more light-hearted studio and outdoor shoot ( esp since my H2B really hates taking photos..
As for makeup, I am thinking of using TG ( see, another similarity here, still cannot believe it..
). What stories did you hear? Had a friend who engaged him and I like his easy going personality and make-up too. However, he is charging $1500, unless you are a Kai bride...hence I'm still considering. Is Freddy friendly? ( will check out his ring if I see him..
Mmm, I'm left with the videography, which I'm pretty clueless. Perhaps you wanna share who you engaged? Lastly, with so many things that you had to do ( the church service especially) did you enage a planner. Thinking of getting one initially, but met one who turned out to be pretty mean, hence scapped that idea. But now thinking about it again, probably someone who can do the coordination for the actual day.
Alright, think this has been a pretty long mail - sorry for those who find it irrelevant. But really glad to find someone who has something in common...really nice of you to share with the rest here even though you are "done" with your wedding. Thanks a lot!
