How far will you go?

In recent years, newly wedded couples in Singapore have been yearning to seek out locations for that ‘special moment’. It used to be locations in Singapore that exude old rural or colonial charm. Then it became holiday shoots where couples enjoy a vacation while taking their wedding shoot at the same time; to countries such as Taiwan and Korea. Some are making their way to even more exotic locales!

It seems that our younger compatriots are willing fork out great sums and go to great lengths out of their way for the moment of a lifetime!

Just how far will you go for a wedding photo of your dreams? Would you drive more than 6,200 miles for it? Well this couple did. While they reported that only 30 photos out of the 580 that they took they loved tremendously (a 5.2% hit rate), it was the memories (see we told you!) that mattered ultimately more than the photos themselves.

Now they have bragging rights : “most dramatic wedding picture” etc. Which we think they thoroughly deserve. Because, lest you think it was just glamour, the couple did not hesitate to remind that to get well off the beaten track, you have to walk (work) for it. Hiking or trekking is not the kind of thing Mel and Suan subscribe to. And carrying 25+ kilos of gear, that reminds Mel of military service days. He’ll take a rain check on doing that…heheh.

We are not sure how many will this appeal to. Perhaps you can tell us if this would be something you’d do for your dream photo?

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. Love the photos, and I’m shocked that the bride looks so lovely after all that hiking! I would be sweaty mess after trekking and changing clothes. Then again, maybe they didn’t love all of the photos for that very reason!

  2. Those sure are breathtaking photos… Although for me, I would travel there because I want to “travel” there… not just for a photo shoot. I have no judgment for others who would go great lengths to achieve a unique wedding album… But then, I sincerely hope that people would travel more because they are curious about the world… But then again, that is only my opinion.

  3. OM-!!! Those are magnificent photographs. I’d love the experience, honeymoon or not! I don’t mind the hike but the carrying of 25kg on my back and sleeping in tents might not be for me. 🙂
