Unique Engagement Photo-shoot

Today, I got one of my best friend's enquiry, about details of pre-wedding photo shooting in Malaysia. Well, I definitely would love to recommend the 2 photographers I chose: Joshua Koh and Chin. Here comes the shoot of Joshua first. He loves using different lighting in his shoot. Vintage, creative and dynamic are the combination of all his photo styles. Really love! Btw, note that the outfits, theme and props were prepared by Mrs Vintage. Do you love them? There are different themes for photo-shoot, natural, vintage and chic...make sure what theme you are loving, do more researches and read more references, then you would have the best of photos XD

A typewriter is full of history

Back to 1990's, I saw my elder sister practising typing with her Electronic typewriter, her speedy action always made me appreciate so much. I like listenting the typing sounds generated by the little machine, just like it would love to tell you a story.

An invention of the typewriter had to go back to 1870 through much of the 20th century, typewriters were indispensable tools for many authors and businessmen. However, by the end of the 1980s, personal computers largely displaced them.

Somehow, I think a typewriter is really a good piece of lovely decor at home and weddings. I am quite happy with the participation of my "Adler" typewriter, with its little keys, just a way to gain all blessing from my beloved friends in my 1127 wedding.

Sharing time, get inspired by these "typewriter weddings" with full of romance. If you are preparing your wedding in future! Get one be your inspiration.

My "Adler" typewriter. Produced in Germany 19th century

It acts importantly in my wedding

My sisters enjoyed so much!

Vintage 1970's Mexican Wedding Dress

With a love in vintage wedding dress, I found this lovely vintage 1970's Mexican Wedding Dress in ebay few months before I wed. I got it custom-fit! And I revised the Bell sleeves into this 3/4 slim sleeves which made myself more slim :). Its laces made the dress be a checker pattern, which all are the details. I love it.

I wore it to take some nice pictures in my 1127 big day afternoon. Isn't it an adorable dress? What's the story behind? I believe its original owner was a detail-minded person, as she loved these lace checker pattern, like myself!

I paired it with my handmade beige hat with black veil, black leather gloves, open-toe heels and a leather belt. It made my look perfect! What do you think?
