Monica and Hedi: looking through the eyes of love
They have endured a long 6 years and 5 months of relationship. And that included a few years of long distance. So when they finally decided that they’ve had enough, it was a celebration of love. Monica and Hedi’s wedding was awesome. It was a blend between Javanese and Chinese tradition that lasted a short two days, stuffed with four main events in two different places; three different wardrobes (I loved the handmade batik pattern on one of the wardrobe); two… no, three different hairstyles for Monica; and a hell of a load of delicious food.
By awesome I mean, they were fun to be with (even their families and relatives were fun to be with). They giggled and smiled all the time, except the first 20 minutes of the church procession, when they were nervous (you know, the part before your partner say “I do” is always nerve breaking – what if “I don’t” come out? Yeah, I know, I watched Four Weddings and a Funeral one too many). And when they looked to each other, you could see that love was so very much in the air.
Congratulations to both Monica and Hedi, whose love believes the impossible. Thank you for trusting my cameras to capture your wedding. And without further ado, these are my short selection of the celebration.
