I like to dream and build plans. They make us move forward. Without plans, our life becomes a routine. Sometimes my dreams come too far, but even though I could have never thought of being a photographer at a real marriage in Singapore, with the local couple as bride and groom. And that was a completely new experience for me. So today, I will share one part of my first trip to Singapore and my first wedding photoshoot at the Gardens by the Bay.
And to begin with a quote about this magnificent country:
I do not think that one can meet any sad people in Singapore. Life there is easy, and people often laugh. Grief can not take root in this country. Not that the locals try not to be sad — they are not acquainted with such an emotion. Ryunosuke Murakami, “Hotel Raffles”.
The first time when I met Alvin and Tong Tong was in Paris. See the results of our cooperation here and here.
Together we spent incredible spring days making the first steps to their big day. Some months before the wedding in Singapore, they went for a pre-wedding or, better to say, engagement trip around Europe. Searching for a photographer, they found the page you are now reading and completely fell in love with my works. That should have been marked as a quote as well. I’ve told you their engagement story already.
I should say, that after ruins of Rome and its ancient architecture I was completely smashed by Singapore as a city. It was like the flight brought me not to the opposite side of continent, but to another Galaxy.
Just behind the gardens, one can enjoy a fantastic view over the most popular hotel in Singapore, one of the most well-known in the world: Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
All the things I’ve seen and experienced in Singapore seem to me like a fairy tale about Avatar even after some time passed. I don’t believe that I saw and pictured everything by myself.
If you would like to make your lady love you even more, just follow the link and book a room in Marina Bay Sands hotel. That would be the best surprise in her life. Just the right place to ask “Will you?” I assure you that you will get 100% positive and immediate answer.
These vast constructions look like decorations for Ray Bradbury’s stories of daytime.
One of the most exciting things about the Gardens is that all these trees and bushes were charged during the day by the Sun and used solar energy to light in the evening and at night. These lights make crazy even experienced travelers. People start rushing around with cameras trying to capture every piece of space.
This is how modern romantic place looks like.
Behind these lovely pictures, you can see that a vast and challenging job is hidden in the article. As it occurred, Gardens are very popular not only with tourists but also with locals. Therefore it wasn’t easy to take wedding photos without passers-by in the frame.
That was a wedding photo shooting in Gardens by the Bay in Singapore for Alvin and Tong Tong. So get inspired and make your wedding look the way you would like!
