2015 has been a journey that I would not forget. I would like to thank all my couples who had engaged Orangefill wedding video services. Thank you for your support, encouragements, confidences, understanding and patience. Me and Faisal felt appreciated with the love you all have shown and shared with us. Thank you.
This wedding have to be the most memorable one for me and my team so far in 2015.
1. MAKCIK GEREKZ
- The bride's makciks / aunties are SUPER DUPER Kecoh, Fun, Friendly, Suka Menyakat (Poking Fun)
- In this this video, you can see they are poking fun at our photographer, Farid Fotography, who was on the dais.
- They were mimicking Farid's actions every time he wanted to take photo.
2. HARUN SATAY
- We have to admit this, the videomakers and photographers, cannot concentrate because of the satay smell.
- We are guilty because we kept looking at the buffet table to monitor that it is not finish.
- This is our first time witnessing satay being served as part of the usual wedding menu.
- We ask the couple how much Harun Satay charge, $0.70 per stick. That's it. They served 5000 sticks on that sunday.
- Harun Satay is my favourite satay stall. For your info only.
NIZAM | SAFARINA - Wedding Highlights
rangefill was highly recommended by Nizam's uncle. Seriously, we personally, had never render our services to the uncle. So we were in awe when Bro Yusof told the couple that he trusted us because we came as people that are honest, hardworking and not afraid to admit mistakes during our coffee session with the couple. How did he find out about Orangefill ? He came across this blog, website and we had 2 coffee meet ups before.
On top of that, we were tasked to search for a wedding photographer as well. We had no problem with that as we have Farid Fotography as our preferred working vendor in weddings. Bro Yusof is also a photographer but he is not into weddings.
The challenge we had with Nizam and Safarina is that, they are quite reserved on camera. It is our style that we dig deeper into couple's love story so that we can use it in the wedding video. But they are not willing to. So, we rather not to push it to an extent it will create an uncomfortable experience for them. But on a personal level, they are a great company to chit chat and laughed with.
For the first time in our 14 months journey in wedding video making, there is a dais in the house.
It is a common sight for me when I was growing up. Watching my uncles and aunties got married. There will always be dais in my grandparents' house.
Ever since, I embarked my video making journey in 2011 and started Orangefill in 2014, it just brings back memories. Where me and my brother, we like to run up and down the dais. Jumping around. Treating it like a ship and we were the navy soldiers. Man, those were the days.
When the bride told me that there will be a dais in the house, I was wondering will it take too much space, will the living be too congested, etc. I was wrong because the family house is really huge. If you are staying in the first few batch of Pasir Ris HDB 5 room flats, you will know. On a side note, how I wish the BTO 5 room flats of the similar size.
For me personally, it was very heartwarming and family-friendliness feeling I experienced throughout the solemnization. Here is the excerpt from their solemnization day.
Our first blog post for 2015. Here it goes...
It always a practice for me and my partner to turn up early for wedding assignment. On 17 Jan 2015, the “road accident” really put our “system” to the test.
My partner supposed to report to bride’s place at 11.30am. I am supposed to report at the community centre at the same timing. Typically, we would left our house 30-45 minutes earlier. Both of us were late! This is our first time being really really late.THIS IS LIKE 30 MINUTES LATE ! Inside my mind “Macam mana ni, majlis orang!”
I was caught in the traffic jam caused by an accident at the junction BKE into TPE. That’s the whole bottle neck. Not only that, once I clear that portion, there is another accident along PIE from CTE junction. Another bottleneck. My destination is Geylang and I am coming from Woodlands.
The accident along the PIE from CTE junction was really major. Because, my partner was stuck in the slow moving traffic from BKE all the way to that particular junction of PIE/CTE. We cannot use our phone as we were driving.
We were lucky to have the official photographer Azfian who is so kind in trying to calm the bride and explaining. When my partner reached bride’s place, he explained and apologized for being late.
Because of this incident, me and my partner in crime decided that we need to leave the house one hour earlier. No excuses. Which we did for our weddings in March and April this year.
