The Proposal

The 2nd of January 2022 was the day Liangliang proposed to Minmin. Together with his best buds @w.p.ictures and @lc.lan.84, they’ll be bringing the unsuspecting girl to a Kintsugi workshop by Gold & Behold. Armed with a bouquet of flowers, and umbrellas (cos shitty weather), they headed down to the studio. Will he succeed? Read more here!

Our Solemnization

We registered our marriage on the 24th March 2022. On this day, the lunar date on the Chinese calendar is 22 February. 22022022 (DDMMYYYY) is a damn legit number, hence we picked this date. It is the official ceremony where we make our vows and become legally married. Follow along and get inspired on this day of photo-taking, and a mini-gathering of both families and friends.

Pre-Wedding Shoot
