Hans & Jaclyn Weds

Filed under: Weddings — Anna-Rina @ 3:48 am

I’ve been anticipating Hans and Jaclyn’s wedding for nearly a whole year! They booked me back in December ‘07 and the first time I met them was when we had a casual portraiture session in Kota Kinabalu.

Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of keeping in touch with both of them as they planned for their wedding and we also met up on one of their trips to KL.

So, the day came and everything was absolutely perfect. The weather was gorgeous, the setting exquisite. With friends and family around, Hans and Jaclyn had the time of their lives.

Hans and Jaclyn, I truly had fun shooting your wedding for it was apparent to me (and I believe everyone else too :D) that you two enjoyed yourself.  And thank you for your hospitality during your dinner receptions, I had a very happy tummy on both nights and great company at the tables I was seated at :D Wheeeee!

Ok, before I continue raving on about your wedding, let’s move on to the pictures! Here are some of my fave shots from the day. And do check out the slideshow at the end of the post for more pictures from the church ceremony :)

Bling it on ;p

The bride

The groom and his best friends

The church ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Kota Kinabalu

After the ceremony, we took some quick portraits and I love this particular one :)

That night, a dinner reception was held for Jaclyn’s side at The Pacific Sutera. Before they headed down to the ballroom, I took some portraits of the newlyweds in their room.

And they had Moo cards, with pictures from our last year’s portrait session, made as thank you notes :)

Loved Jaclyn’s comfy dress!

The night was filled with performances as Jaclyn’s side of the family are extremely talented - singing and dancing is norm for them and boy oh boy, did they get it on that night ;)


A week later, a dinner reception for Hans’ side of the family was held at The Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort. Luckily for me, we managed to get some portrait shots outdoor before the sunset :)


Hans’ uncle and aunt. I actually met them in the morning of the same day as I was shooting my best friend’s solemnisation ceremony (she’s also his niece. haha! yes, KK’s that small) before heading over to STAR for Hans and Jaclyn’s reception. When he saw me that night, first thing he said was, “Aren’t you tired?!”. LOL!!

These two kids were adorable! They were initially on the dancefloor, imitating the older ones’ dancing but I think they were knackered after awhile and decided to take a break ;p

Jaclyn’s aunts ‘taking advantage’ of the latest addition in the family. Hehe…

More pictures from the church ceremony. Just click on play and while waiting for the pictures to load, go grab a cuppa coffee ;p


Hans and Jaclyn, it was an absolute honour for me to be part of your special day.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with so many great couples ever since I started wedding photography and you two definitely are one of those couples who remind me how blessed I am to be doing what I’m doing (Ishh. I’m so cliche aren’t I? Must be the combination of jazz music, late night and lack of sleep talking. Hehe…)

See you both next week :D

    It looks as though everyone had a perfect day, captured nicely with all your candid shots :-)
