Wedding Hendra & Ani

Hendra & Ani is still one of my favorite wedding couple to date. I don’t really know how I got this gig in the first place, although, perhaps it’s because Ani is the sister of a fellow wedding vendor in Jakarta, Yefta Gunawan, a renowned Jakarta couturier (Hopefully, it’s because they both love our portfolio *smiley face*). Yefta himself also designed two beautiful white crystal-encrusted gowns for her beloved sister.


Personally, the morning ‘ritual’ will always be one of the most romantic part of any weddings. This is usually when I could explore and capture the feeling of both bride & grooms on their happy day. The detail that goes into the morning preparation can evoke emotions from both bride & groom, like when the relatives’ arrived to congratulate & give their well wishes, and also the parents’ loving presence throughout the day. It always feels as precious as the whole wedding itself.


Hendra & Ani’s wedding celebration too was beautiful like none other, subtly decorated with lush green & classic ornaments that certainly add novelty to everything in my opinion. Beautifully classic, almost-homey-rustic-feel but still glamorous and celebratory. It was also mentioned later in the banquet that Ani’s parents anniversary date also fall on that very day. Which certainly brings heartwarming joy to everyone in the party.


On a side note, if I may, I want to say that preparing for any wedding can be stressful to any couple. One thing that I can add to the hundreds tips that everyone probably already heard is that: Don’t sweat the small stuffs. Look into each other’s heart, and focus on the future that you both will be walking in together, and then it will all fall into place perfectly.


To Hendra & Ani,


May you two have a blessed & loving marriage,


Cheers, Philip.
