On 21 Oct, I had the pleasure of photographing Gwen and Ian ‘s wedding at the Bethanie Chapel. Watching two people very much in love made the day very beautiful. This is my first time to shoot a wedding at Bethanie, it is a very nice location for wedding.

Ceremony: Bethanie Chapel
Reception: Aberdeen Marina Club (AMC)

My fav of the day. I love taking picture of putting on the veil. Not only it looks beautiful, it also marks the change of a lady into a bride
I like this moment

wow !!!

We got 30 min to take some portrait before we went to AMC. I really love this location, we got a lot of colored window light and look at the window pattern at the top right corner, it is just beautiful
we got 60 min inside the chapel for some portrait

Another nice location with beautiful light from the door outside. and there are lots of details on the door — something we can’t fine in other locations.
we got wonderful light everywhere

Thanks Gwen and Ian waiting for this moment. Instead of going to AMC, we waited for the sunset and went to the top floor of the Bethanie to take this shot
