“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

These are the famous Bible verses the bride pondered upon as she walked down that aisle.

Sometimes it is easy to let everything else steal the limelight on your wedding day. But for Renny and Ben, thePhotograph captured their testament of love that took centre stage.

Renny: “It was very exciting when the day drew nearer, and we realised the day we had worked hard preparing for was coming. For various reasons, we changed several key vendors but everything turned out perfectly despite the many obstacles we faced. We’re glad as well that there were no disputes between our families and us.

“We managed to convince our parents to make our wedding day personal and warm, unlike the typical huge weddings in Indonesia. We went with bold and elegant warm tones and a touch of gold; pastel and sweet colours definitely don’t go with our personality.

“Elegant glamour filled the indoor section of the Hyatt OnFive rooftop, while the outdoor section was filled with dancing and singing. We prepared umbrellas as gifts for our guests because it was rainy season and we didn’t want to put up a tent. Our invitations were another unique part of our wedding – laser cut plywood, wrapped in gift-wrapping paper.”

Tips for brides: “Don’t take more than six months to plan the details; you’ll get bored and overwhelmed. Your tastes and preferences might change over time too. Also, pick your vendors carefully. Don’t go with someone you have doubts about. Follow your heart.”
