Prashan& Shermaine’s Wedding Updates
Hi.. i’m glad that you’re taking this opportunity to check our my wedding updates. First of all, let me introduce us. We are Prashan, the groom to be and Shermaine, the bride to be. We’re both born on the 19th March, 1983 and 1985 respectively. Our wedding journey starts here….
19th March 2010 :
The wedding proposal (during our birthday party @ Cavells Sri Hartamas)
1st May 2010 :
After much scouting online, finally went to a wedding gallery boutique to commit on our pre-wedding pictures. For those who are like me, whom has no faith in Bridal Shop photography and fear ending up having pictures looking like Genghis Khan, or Sailor Moon, you should check out Keep Gallery. Basically, the idea of the boutique started when 6 photographers met up one day and decided that they wanted to give their customers a Pictorial Journey rather then just a bridal shoot. I particularly like the work of one Sam Leong. This is a shot i really like. Not sure who’s the photographer yet but he’s gonna definitely be my pre-wedding photographer.
PS: Did you know wedding photography is FREAKING expensive.. Do save up

Wow, been 2 months since my last entry on my wedding.. phew! when you are at the peak of your work and you are planning for your wedding.. it sure drains you out! anyway, finally made an appointment to go and make deposit payments for my banquet halls.
For those who are new to this, you need about RM3k/location for deposit! so if ur having 2 dinners like me, make sure ur credit card can swipe 6k haha anyway, the interesting part is that i went to a wedding expo to make payment as Equatorial Hotel was doing their exhibition there. To be exact, it was called 7th Malaysia International Wedding & Banquet Exhibition. Made my 3k payment and they gave me 6 lucky draw cards, eligibility was RM500 spent per card. All together there was 17 consolation prizes and 3 main prizes up for grabs.
Guess what? i wont 5th prize.. which is consolation 2.. got myself RM8k worth of wedding goodies. However, a lot of them came with a lot of Terms and Conditions and if they make my life difficult, i’m gonna make sure the internet knows about it! here’s some stuff that i won..
- Guilin (5Days4Nights) Ground Tour for 2 exclude Flight & Visa from Malinja Travel
- Shanghai (4Days3Nights) Ground Tour for 2 exclude Flight & Visa from Malinja Travel
- Wedding Gown Rental worth up to RM 1000 @ My Dream Wedding House Damansara Perdana
- Anniversary Wedding Potrait
There were a few other stuffs but i dont have my winning ticket with me right now so i cant really list them all down. Maybe next time.
Next up on my to do list would be my wedding card and my photo shoot next month!
August 20th :
Want to know when the wedding chills kicks in? it’s when you bring your wife to try out her wedding gown. As beautiful as the might look, you’ll feel the chills running through your blood.. My future wife..
September 23rd :
So we did our photoshoot in August and we’ve gotten the raw pictures… here are my favourite 6 pictures… smart of Keep Gallery to retain their web url on the pictures and i did not want to edit it out coz they did do a good job… hope u like the pictures! Oh ya, we finally chose Anson Choi to be our photographer as when we finally re-looked at the pictures he took, i kinda liked them… Also, Anson posted our pictures on his blog too! You can check out his other work at http://ansonphotography.blogspot.com/
Next step would be wedding card! time to source for reliable printers!
December 29th :
Phew, after going dark for 3 months, i can finally update this page.. wedding invitation card is ready.. Yes, it costs me abour RM 700 for wedding cards and envelopes.. and nope, they are not cheap. One could alternatively use wedding card from Hotels, but where’s the fun in that right? it’s your wedding for christ sake!
How’d u like my wedding card? =)
Till my next update!
