St Andrew’s Church Wedding + Shangri-la Hotel Reception: Ben + Sonia
The beautiful Christian wedding of Ben and Sonia at St Andrew’s Church in Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur. This is one of the churches where I have always wanted to photograph a wedding, and finally the opportunity came.

Sonia looking radiant and beautiful.
I love how she was so calm and collected during the preparation before the ceremony. This translates to beautifully relaxed and natural pictures. So brides, remember to relax!

Girl time just before the march in.
The usual position that guests magically adopt during a church wedding march-in: Smartphones held ready in vertical orientation. Almost like a synchronized movement. Thankfully they are seated at this wedding.
Ben waiting in anticipation.
Sonia walks in with her dad. Seated guests help focus the attention to the bride and father.
Praise and worship during the wedding ceremony.
Ben’s mother looking on with joy.
This was the first time I witnessed this. Ben washes Sonia’s feet, just like Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.
