Johnnydick & Manmeet's Wedding in Kuala Penyu.

Here is a selection of some of the wedding photos from Johnnydick & Manmeet's wedding shot on the 26 Sept in Kuala Penyu (Turtle Bay), Sabah at the local Catholic church with the brides reception on the same day at her residence and the groom reception the week after (3rd October) at his dad's residence.

Its one of my first outstation assignments so it was a pretty interesting one for me at least.
The groom is my cousin's brother in law and I was hired to shoot for the grooms side. There was another photographer that the bride's side hired from Penampang for their side and to top it all up it was a double wedding in the church with another couple also being married at the same time as well.
Suffice to say there was more than your average number of camera-men & video-men running around that church that day..

Anyway one interesting element of the Kadazan Dusun Kuala Penyu style of wedding is the custom of the bride/groom offering relatives & guests a drink of local rice spirits (similar to the Chinese tea ceremony) at some point during the reception. This is where the bride and groom sit in circle with and MC and trade toasts with their parents relatives and guests.
