The three earliest people on the scene (us and mum) chilling over coffee and drinks. If you think this corner of the restaurant looks familiar, that is because I had a photo shoot there earlier this year and have posted a preview here.
Pre-lunch mingling when cocktails and open-faced sandwiches were served. Much alcohol were consumed and selfies were taken while waiting for all the guests to arrive.
Ladies enjoying themselves before the wedding toast took place.
Us seated at the VIP table with mum beside me. Needless to say Ision and I were both busy sharing freshly taken pictures on Facebook. This is the sign of the times so there is only one thing I want to say to people who frown upon this–DEAL WITH IT!
Another shot of us pre-occupied with a smartphone, oblivious to everything else. Expectedly the waiting staff also had to double up as part-time photographers.
All seated enjoying the first course of the day. 40 people were invited but only 30 or so could make it. We wouldn’t want the event to be any bigger, given that we are both really quite anti-social people (i.e. we have no energy to deal with acquaintances, just close friends and family).
What do good hosts do in between courses? Chat with the guests of course. This is Ision doing it (albeit in an uncomfortable squatting position due to his height)…
…while this is me doing it at one end of the long table. Suffice to say I totally lost my voice due to how much I drank and talked on that day (I have actually not fully recovered yet).
Still want some more? You’d have to wait for a few days for my next post!
