7 awesome moments from a Persian – Chinese wedding in Singapore / by Anh Nguyen

Tim already shared a bunch of impressions from Lynn and Javad’s beautiful and amazing wedding we shot in Singapore over new year – but I really wanted to share some more shots.

Being a 2 day wedding with Persian and Chinese ceremonies and traditions plus a massive ballroom wedding with a crazy after party there was just so much visual input …

So here are 7 awesome moments from this special wedding:

1. Bridal portrait

Although the schedule was tight, I was able to convince Lynn to stand in for a quick portrait before the gate crashing

6. Yum Seng Ceremony

During the traditional Singaporean Yum Seng ceremony, the goal is to yell as loud as possible thrice before consuming the alcoholic beverage. Each toast represents different things. The first for a blissful marriage; the second for eternal love between the couple; and the third for fertility.
