It had been almost one month time I never write anything since the last post. Well, I was exhausted for completing my school project and preparing the final exams. Two papers down and three more to go. Anyway, I give myself a short break to write something here.
I was invited to my friend wedding dinner at a restaurant at Harbour Front Centre. Indeed, I was not only be there for food but also take this great chance to try out the wedding photography. This is the first time I shot in wedding and I know the wedding photography isn’t gonna to be easy. Therefore, I surfed the internet to get some tips before I attended the wedding dinner.
I brought my Sony NEX-6 with the SEL24F18Z, a backup kit lens, a back up Sony DSC-HX20V, and of course the extra batteries along to the banquet.
The wedding was going to start soon, quickly followed the wedding photographer to see what’s happening outside the banquet!
In the middle of the banquet, the grooms and bride went out from the banquet. They were preparing for the second round of arrival with another set of dress and suit! They gave me a nice pose when they realized I was shooting. Haha!
The second half of the banquet was more active than the first half. More activities were done here.
After the “Jiao Bei Jiu”, family of both the groom and bride were invited onto the stage.
And then followed by the highest point of the wedding banquet! Guess what is it? It is “Yam Seng”!!! It is a Chinese tradition where everyone in the banquet will hold the glass into the air to wish the groom and bride for all the best.
After the “Yam Seng”, the groom and bride stayed on the stage to give a speech. What a surprise!
When the groom finished the speech, the bride and himself were going to take a group photo with all the guests of each table while all the rest were enjoying the dishes of the banquet. Although the wedding banquet was over, but there is a new beginning of your marriage life!
Again, wish both of you for all the best and stay happiness forever!
