Around a year ago, my wife had a reunion with one of her old friends, Shirley Kong from high school. They were both at the same school in Brunei, but we were especially surprised when she told us that she was also based in Newcastle (same city as us!) It is true when they say that “it is a small world afterall”!
We met Shirley for dinner one night, and she told us that we had to meet her friend, Susie, who is said to like my work a lot. She expressed her interest in “pre-booking” me as her wedding and pre-wedding photographer when she & her partner John ties the knot. At the time I felt very honoured because I haven’t met Susie yet. A year later, the proposal happened in Hong Kong! … and true to her words, Susie asked me to provide her the photography booking forms!
Susie & John’s venue of choice for their pre-wedding is Venice, an island where all the buildings are built on water. One of the most unique cities in the world, there is no cars on the island, just many little bridges and little shops. With colorful walls, orchaestra playing classical music, gondolas in water, it’s hard not to fall in love with this romantic city.
When it came to the photoshoot, I couldn’t help but felt a bit under pressure. I know Susie has invested a lot of time in her pre-wedding preparation, and being a surgeon, as with all outstanding doctors, Susie expects the highest of standards. So I really hope you will like these photographs!
Thank you very much Susie & John for your warm and generous hospitality in Venice. We had a really wonderful time!
