We were lucky that there were 2 bridal fairs over the same weekend we decided to be serious and move forward with plans to get married. So, we visited both fairs, with the mindset of just browsing and collecting ideas for the pre-wedding photoshoot, gowns and suits, hair and makeup and actual day photography, together with venue quotations. We certainly didn’t intend to confirm anything that weekend, but it turns out that Mr Goh was particularly taken by a photo from Thomson Wedding Collection. Now, the man isn’t really excited about all these stuff and I could easily tell from his expression if he likes or doesn’t like the bridal studio within seconds. So, when he said “wait a minute, go back to that photo”, I knew he liked that particular photo and feel. So we sat down and looked at more past albums TWC has done, before going into details about pricing and packages.
Some people place more emphasis on the hair & makeup portion of the photoshoot, some the range of gowns available, some the photo feel. We belong to the last group. Mr Goh and I are the sort of low-key couple who likes to chill out with friends at home, or some place casual. T-shirt & shorts are our default attire for the weekend, and thus we didn’t want anything frilly for our photoshoot. I have actually thought of skipping the pre-wedding photoshoot and asking friends who are into photography to help us take those casual couple photos instead, but the price difference is only about $800. So might as well to go professional eh? After an hour and a half, and numerous negotiations, we signed up for a package. With this package, a lot of the nitty gritty details have been settled such as the AD evening gowns and suits for both sets of parents and also AD photography.
