A Blissful Lomo Wedding for the Stonerfairy

12

A traditional Malay wedding in Singapore shot in Lomo - Fisheye 2, L-CA+ and the Instant back. No wedding should be complete without Lomo shots!

Faizal and Liza aka Stonerfairy tied the knot on 13th April 2010 and it was a marvelous event. Liza’s one of my best mates and we’re both into Lomography. It’s only fair that I have to be the lomographer for her big day and I was honoured to get that opportunity. It also gives me an excuse to play with my new toys! I shot my first roll of film on Tresna the Pink Fisheye 2 on this day and also my first pack of instax on the LC-A Instant back!

The wedding took place on two days, 13th and 14th April 2010.

On the 13th, the “nikah” (solemnization) ceremony takes place at the bride’s home in the morning. The bride and groom exchange rings and gifts – which included some lomo toys and there’s a mini feast thereafter.

The following evening, a wedding dinner was held at an Indonesian restaurant called Lagun Sari whereby family and friends gathered to celebrate the union of the two. There was also an impromptu request by the couple for some of their friends to sing some songs on karaoke and unfortunately I was one of them! It was pretty embarassing singing in front of so many people but it was all in the name of fun. Well I can’t possibly turn down a request made from the bride can I!

After a few rounds of food and lots of picture taking later the night finally comes to an end. Cheers to the newlyweds and may they have a blissful married life!
