Heritage Wedding, George Town
On 11 and 12 April ’09 (Sat. & Sun.), almost 200 hundred photography enthusiasts (including yours truly) took part in the Historical Wedding Gown Photography Competition which was supported by the Penang State Government. The event was held at major tourist locations in the heart of George Town, namely Fort Cornwallis, Sri Maha Mariamman Temple (along Little India), the stretch along Beach Street and finally the clan jetties along Weld Quay, particularly Chew Jetty.
The three elegantly beautiful models, Danielle, Karen and Roxanne were a joy to capture. They looked stunning in their wedding gowns and having the iconic sites of George Town as the backdrop made the whole event even more meaningful.
My thoughts through the lens
Passion. Grit. Determination. If these words sound very familiar in the sporting world, I’m sure these words are applicable to the photography world as well and this article also serves as a tribute to all the photographers who braved the heat for those two days. Here is a sneak peek of the event through my lens and for now, I will let the images do the ‘talking’.
