shentel & bobby
Its not every day you are assigned to capture the wedding of one of Malaysia’s powerhouse couples. We were thrilled to capture the epic Sydney wedding for childhood sweethearts Shentel Lee & Bobby Ting at the Westin Hotel in Sydney. The brides dress by Monique Lhuillier from Helen Rodrigues featured a strapless embroidered bodice with full tufted skirt and matching bolero. Shentel’s exquisite necklace was a present from both sets of parents and crafted from two family heirloom pieces put together to represent both families. We loved that each bridesmaid carried a metallic silver balloon walking down the aisle instead of a floral bouquet. Due to the size of the bridal party and guest list at the reception all ballrooms were used to cater for the day. A custom stage was built for the wedding ceremony with hundreds of fairy lights twinkling behind sheer curtains, crystal birds were suspended with white ribbons and big white urns framed the stage.
Shentel & Bobby’s vision for the reception was truly spectacular. The gold & ivory colour scheme included Tiffany chairs, a handpicked selection of gold trees trimmed with glass, crystal, gold and silver trinkets and a stunning arrangement of parasols hanging from the ceiling. Being a December wedding guests were invited to take home a selection of trinkets to hang on their own Christmas trees. We love that Shentel also designed personal monogrammed bags for each guest perfect for taking home the gold frame place settings. It comes as no surprise that such a stylish bride has gone on to grace the covers and fashion pages of some of the popular magazines in Asia.
