“Fill my heart with song, and let me sing for ever more; you are all I long for, all I worship and adore”
― Frank Sinatra
Beneath a transparent dome, gilded candlesticks and glass lanterns are artfully arranged around a grand, sweeping arch overflowing with lush, trailing greenery. Bright and airy, the atmosphere is infused with a romantic, relaxed vibe. A couple walks in, the groom dapper in a grey blazer, the bride shining in a lace-covered gown. There are tender smiles and kisses on foreheads, all while they sway gently to a melody only they hear…
Equal parts modern and minimalist, this styled photo and video shoot features the winners of The Wedding Scoop Malaysia’s Instagram giveaway, Faisal and Aggie. We hope these beautiful shots will inspire couples everywhere.
A word from Grace Tan of Stories.my:
“The inspiration for the shoot came from the location itself, Glamz at Genting. As a new venue with interesting dome-like structures and glamping facilities surrounded by scenic mountain views, we were excited to create this styled shoot after the contest with Stories.my and The Wedding Scoop ended.
Together with Pretty Little Things, we came up with the idea of a modern, simple styled shoot with a tinge of boho. We wanted to combine glamour with the outdoors, and display simplicity with a touch of rawness.
The flowers were beautifully designed by Bloom2u. We especially love the bouquet with the unique protea cynaroides flower decorated with various types of eucalyptus leaves and other foliage. Pretty Little Things worked together with Bloom2u to come up with a complete styled look for the shoot.
The elegant wedding gown was provided by That White Dress, and the look was made complete with hair and make-up from SuyenPang Artistry. The end result was inspiring and made our job as photographers and videographers easy!
When we contacted the winning couple, Faisal and Aggie, and got to know them better, we realised that they fit the whole theme perfectly. Both of them work in the creative industry: Faisal owns his own video production company and Aggie is a copywriter in an advertising agency.
Individually, they are uniquely different – Aggie is a fitness junkie (she is a part-time boxing instructor!), a meticulous planner and is a bit more cautious in making decisions. Faisal, on the other hand, is more of a risk-taker (for example, he rented a motorcycle in Bali without having a driver’s licence and with minimal experience, something Aggie wouldn't do), has zero interest in fitness but willingly plays the role of Instagram cameraman to Aggie.
Together, they fit like a glove despite coming from culturally different families. They have such a chill vibe about them, brought together by their love for music, cats, travel and all things creative.
After spending 11 years together, they eventually tied the knot in August 2018. So our shoot together was a pretty relaxing one for them, since they had just returned from their honeymoon in the Maldives!”
Thank you to the creative team behind this styled shoot for sharing these beautiful images with us, and congratulations to Faisal and Aggie!
