Gerald and Zhi Xin wanted a unique and highly memorable pre-wedding photography shoot in Singapore. As avid Disney fans, it was no wonder that they asked for a mermaid-inspired theme shoot. Asked why of all the Disney themes, they chose this theme and their answer was simple: “It’s romantic.”
To say the truth, it was pretty much a challenge for us when we got to know the theme the couple had chosen. We wanted elements of the sea and shipwreck to be incorporated, but nothing else too cliché. The below pictures will speak of our interpretation of it!
The couple particularly loved our wooden raft which we built from scratch using eco-friendly materials. It had a simple white sail, a vintage treasure chest, an old-style candle holder, and a whimsical touch of fresh fuchia and white flowers with green sprigs and foliage.
Pre-wedding photography in Singapore is always exciting as it reflects a few of the couple’s intimate and romantic wishes and capturing their sentiments of being on the brink of something wonderful.
Other details to the pre-wedding photography session included the use of seaweed, a white fishing net, shells, more treasure chests, and a drift log to delicately emphasize the mermaid theme without going overboard. Also thoughtfully done were the stone place cards, gold-plated dishes, utensils, and goblets.
We loved creating this particular pre-wedding photography theme and as always, we made it a point to keep the focus on the couple and not on the props.
We make sure that whatever we do to create a theme, we never allow it to overpower the stars of the photo shoot: the couple.
Our efforts proved to be successful as the end result was a breathtaking blend of love, life, romance, and fantasy in the middle of modern Singapore.
