Wedding photos – church wedding
Posted on June 15th, 2008 by Lilian • Filed under: Family
I know my bros and sister who couldn’t make it to Singapore are waiting for the wedding photos. So, here are some taken at the church wedding.
Christian wedding ceremony at the Katong Presbyterian Church (KPC hehehe). The bride was led to the waiting groom by her father.
Photo of the groom and his brothers, sister (and sis’s bf). The groom must be asking Jesus at the very last minute, “Oh Lord, send me Your final decision. Do I say Yes, I do, or Do I run out now?” LOL.
Groom’s elder sister, in front. My 2nd bro reminded me to tell the elder sister, “Hey, your younger bro has outrun you. So, when is your turn?” The one at the back is the groom’s aunt and family.
The marriage vow read by the Rev. Tim Tan. I went to the Presbyterian Church and went …
“Wow, what a vibrant community.” You can feel the tight community they have there, very organised and I think a very rich church (in terms of financial and faith) too because they have a lot of activities. I thought they have a wedding mass but apparently, they don’t have communion during wedding. Frankly, it is a whole new experience of ‘churchie stuffs’ for me. I am so used to our glitzy (hehehe) Catholic church style so it feels a bit different there.
The pastor was holding the wedding ring high and asked the congregation and the family some stuffs and we were supposed to say ‘We do’ and ‘We will’ to his questions. He reminded us, the friends and families, that marriage is a very difficult journey and we are supposed to play the peacemakers and not the wedges when the couple has troubles in their journey. Amen. (oh ya, the go ‘ah-men’ and I go ‘ay-men’)
The marriage is solemnised (made legal in Singaporean law) at church. Sitting down is the witness, the bride’s father. Standing up, is my bro-in-law. Both are witnesses to the marriage.
There are lots more photos to come. All the above are taken with my Nikon D40 with 18-200mm VR lens. My bro-in-law has the D80 with the same lens. I didn’t know that D80 uses SD card as well. His is a 4GB and mine a 2GB. Several card readers cannot read the SD cards. Phew…lucky, direct cable connection enable the photos to be downloaded. Or else, wah piang, 700 photos all stuck in the SD card. Lesson learnt – always buy cameras with CF card because SD card is not stable when it is loaded with too large files.
