The Key to Capturing Emotions through Passionate Lenses, by Simple Clouds Films

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

In this issue, we share the secret sauce behind Simple Clouds Films. Featured as one of our Noteworthy Wedding Videographers this year, they specialise in filming wedding videos filled with emotions for your big day.”

Months of hard work and preparation lead to your wedding day – a single day filled with significant and overwhelming moments. Needless to say, you will want to hold your wedding day memories close to your heart for years to come. With professional wedding videography, you can relive these treasured moments over and over. Your wedding video will serve as a wonderful reminder of the love, happiness, and commitment that you both share in your marriage.

Featured as one of our Noteworthy Wedding Videographers this year, Simple Clouds Films is a wedding videographer team based in Singapore. They specialise in emotional, artistic, and timeless wedding videography. Their mission is to help couples like yourself capture meaningful memories of their wedding day in a pure, artistic, storytelling fashion. Their videos aim to encapsulate your wedding day emotions so that when you rewatch it even after 30 years, it will stir up the same beautiful feelings you felt that very day. Combining evocative storytelling with artistic angles, Simple Clouds Films creates a visual experience that is bound to touch your heartstrings. Read on to find out how they make this happen!

1. A strong focus on emotions

The roots of Simple Clouds Films began in nostalgia and familiarity when Dean discovered his father’s old digital camera after his father’s passing during his adolescent years. Looking through these photos sparked a sense of melancholy, but beyond that, inspired Dean to start snapping pictures of his own. He realised that each frame froze not only a memory but brings forth an expression that cannot be told in writing alone. Reminiscing the memories he shared with his father led him to start his own form of artistic expression, one that strongly hinges on stories and emotions.

Today, Simple Clouds Films stands on the foundation that every frame is an experience and each expression evokes a feeling. Together, they have the capability to tell a story. The team’s strong belief in that emotions play a huge role in our lives and relationships lead them to passionately capture them in their film and stills. Whether you are feeling joy, excitement, glee, awe, happiness, deep love or even nervous anticipation, the team strives to capture these flashes of emotions on camera. This leads them to create videos that trigger a deeper, heartfelt emotion when watching.

“Simple Clouds believes in emotions. Emotions that make every film a different feeling. Emotions that drive the passion within us. We do not treat our movies as work but as our passion.  Our decision in music, artistic angles, details, and pacing aim to create a visual experience that touches the hearts of many.”

2. Having you feel naturally at ease

For many couples like you and me, our only experience being in front of a camera is probably when taking selfies or vacation photos. We seldom get ourselves in front of a professional camera, which explains why we might feel nervous or intimidated when doing a shoot. I know prior to our wedding photo shoot, I felt butterflies in my stomach! But with professional wedding videographers like Simple Clouds Films, they understand how to make couples feel comfortable, at ease, and engaged with not the camera, but each other. With them, it might seem like the camera does not exist. After all, you need to feel comfortable to be laughing and kissing in front of the camera! That is how they are able to capture exuberant emotions and intimate moments in their photos.

The team believes that they are providing more than just a creative service, they are providing an experience and a friendship in the process. Their friendly vibes and warm gestures make it very easy for their couples to feel at ease and relaxed. In fact, many of Dean’s clients have become their friends after the wedding! Read their reviews here.

3. Adding a touch of artistic flair

Emotions though vital in creating a touching and memorable wedding video, making one of good production value requires more. With his experience, creative direction, and passion, Dean is able to add an artistic flair to your wedding video that is unique to his own style.

Simple Clouds Films aims to use artistic angles, seamless editing and carefully chosen music to create a visual experience that is not just a mere recording of your wedding day. Through watching their wedding videos, they want it to trigger emotions and feelings, which allows couples to reminisce their special day over and over. Their unique approach and style is something you will not find in other wedding videos.

4. Uniquely crafted to your preferences

With a million and one things to prepare for your wedding, it is inevitable that brides worry whether their preferences will be taken into consideration. As this special day is about both of you, you will want to create a wedding that reflects that. At Simple Clouds Films, their philosophy is to always place the couple first. While their unique style shines through in every video they create, it does not hinder them from finding a balance between their artistry and taking your preferences into consideration.

Prior to the shoot, the team will take time to get to know you both, and understand what you are looking for in your wedding video. Even if you do not have a concrete idea of what you may want, Simple Clouds Films will make suggestions that they think will suit both of you. Bringing forth the essence of your relationship and reflecting your personalities are what they aim to do in their work. They also take the extra mile to conceptualise out of the ordinary concepts so you will have a wedding video that is one of a kind. With Dean and his team, you can ease your mind knowing that your wedding videography will go smoothly.

5. Allowing you to thoroughly enjoy the experience (and it doesn’t have to cost a bomb!)

As we rush through our hectic lives, we sometimes let our best memories flash by unknowingly. As leading up to your wedding day might be a mad rush, slowing down and letting go on the day itself does take an effort. Being a worry-wart at heart, on our wedding day, I wished I did not spend too much time worrying about the details! But one thing that I knew really helped, was having reliable and experienced vendors that knew exactly what they were doing, leaving couples worry-free. When searching for wedding vendors, be sure to get someone that you not only can connect well with, but has a positive attitude and a goal of providing you with the best experience that they can offer. Simple Clouds Films strives to take care of every little detail, leaving you to let your hair down and enjoy yourself in the process.

For the quality and dedication you get from Simple Clouds Films, you will be happy to hear that they offer very reasonable rates! You can also customise your package according to your needs. Other add-ons include guest interviews, a documentary film, save-the-date trailer, a pre-wedding love shoot. The team is also open to any other ideas you may have. 

  • Deluxe package (8-hours) starts from $1,688
  • Premier package (8-hours) starts from $1,988 (includes SDE)

Going back to what’s important

Years after your wedding day, your wedding video and photos will allow you to relive the most beautiful memories of your special day. Be sure to choose a wedding videographer and photographer that can accurately capture these emotions with a timeless, artistic approach. At Simple Cloud Films, it is their mission to make every couples’ experience a positive and unforgettable one. Check out their past works here and learn more about their wedding packages here.

Experience the Unique Charm of Hilltop Weddings at Faber Peak

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

“In this issue, we take you up to the skies and to the hilltop at Faber Peak. Let us share the charming wedding venues available in this unique hilltop destination.”

From atop the cityscapes of Singapore lies a breathtaking view of our green city. At Faber Peak, Singapore’s only hilltop venue, you will find nature and artistic design come together to bring you a unique wedding venue promising an unforgettable celebration.

As featured in our Noteworthy Wedding Venues of 2018 and Top 10 Garden Venues in Singapore, Faber Peak lies nestled on the hilltop of Mount Faber. It overlooks a mesmerising panoramic view of the city, lush greenery and harbour vistas. As the latest wedding trends show couples tend towards cosy, intimate celebrations, Faber Peak is one such alternative venue that has grown popular for weddings. With both indoor and alfresco spaces for your choosing, read on to find out more about this charming wedding venue.

Faber Park has 3 extraordinary venues for you to choose from for your wedding celebration. Whether you pick one of the indoor or alfresco venues at Faber Peak to host your celebration, you will find yourself surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

Private Dining Room

Sitting at the highest point of Faber Peak is their Private Dining Room that offers you a truly intimate experience with an extraordinary view.

Encased with glass walls and framed with graceful Hiba wood arcs, the Private Dining Room has the unique design of a crystalline glass alcove – making it a perfect observatory spot to feel on top of the world. Feel your heart skip a beat as you soak in the panoramic views of the vibrant sea, Sentosa harbor and the beautiful stretch of nature from Mount Faber Park. As dusk falls, streaks of natural light come in through the glass windows to enhance the romantic ambience.

If you are searching for an exclusive space, this venue will certainly dust your wedding with magic. Day weddings are especially stunning here. Its capacity seats 70 guests, and it also features a sheltered alfresco terrace which seats 10 guests for an intimate wedding solemnization. With its raw wood elements exuding a rustic charm, the timeless beauty of this outdoor deck will surely captivate your guests as you say “I Do”.

The Ballroom

The Ballroom, which seats up to 200 guests, shares a similar layout to hotel banquets that you are familiar with. It is an ideal space for couples who are looking to keep it traditional and convenient but still want a special touch. In replacement of walls that surround the usual ballrooms are floor-to-glass ceiling windows that allow you and your guests to admire the spectacular view that lies beyond.

Both day and night views present something special of their own. In the day, you can clearly see the lush greenery of Mount Faber and cruise ships at the habour. Whereas when evening falls, you get the sparkle of lights from the cable cars and cityscape below. The Ballroom gives you the best of both worlds – air-conditioned comforts yet not forgoing the splendid view and surroundings. Your solemnization at the staging area will also enjoy a unique never-seen-before backdrop of cable cars passing by!

Conveniently, both the private dining room and ballroom has a powder room for you to do your touchups.

Arbora

My favourite spot at Faber Peak is Arbora. This refreshing open space combines a gorgeous view with fresh air, sea breeze, and blue skies! Here, it is likely to get high on happiness alone, though the bar counter serves up pretty good concoctions too. This space seats 230 guests and the buffet set up ensures guests enjoy the evening mingling with each other in a relaxing atmosphere. The international buffet selection even includes a carving station serving up a 150 days Grain Fed Roast Beef Striploin!

For the convenience of your guests to get to the venue, the Arbora package can include a 2-way 49 coach transfer service (from 1 location to Faber Peak), or a 24 seater bus from Habourfront. Click here for the full package inclusions.

A Beautiful Garden Solemnization

When you book your reception at Faber Peak, you can request for your solemnization at The Garden – an intimate space surrounded by verdant greenery. The tall Angsana trees here provide shade and tranquility to the garden. Exchange your vows and give the century-old Bell of Happiness a ring to celebrate the meaningful occasion together! The Garden seats up 30 guests.

The solemnisation package includes the following:

  • Usage of the garden for a maximum of 1 hour
  • Solemnisation table for 5 persons with a long low floral centrepiece and country-style chairs, fresh floral posies and sashes
  • Country style chairs for a maximum of 30 guests with fresh floral posies and sashes on aisle chairs and rose petals for the march in route

A Wedding to Remember

5 Things You Must Know Before Painting Your Dream Home in Singapore

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

Painting – such is its importance considering walls make up the bulk of one’s home. When executed well, painting brings life and adds depth to a new home. Whereas when the colours do not blend well, it can be a disaster and an eyesore. With our new home upcoming, DIY was a consideration to save cost. But after our previous painting stint, helping our mum paint her home for the previous Chinese New Year, we were just a little hesitant about DIY considering the amount of time we spent painting. Plus, it’s our first home after all, and we wanted it to look modern and luxe.

We heard about Nippon Paint’s Momento Special Effects Paint for feature walls; a fascinating concept for us as we were hoping to avoid having any built-in features for our living room and master bedroom. Redesigning in the future would be much easier. Our eyes were set on the Momento Elegant paint, part of the textured paint series.

What transpired way exceeded our expectations, honestly speaking. In this issue, let us share our experience with Nippon Paint and 5 useful things to note before embarking on your next painting conquest for your new home.

1. Say goodbye to uninspiring walls with Momento Special Effects Paint

Our living room with a Momento Elegant textured paint feature wall

Voilà, our living room masterpiece, executed to perfection by the professional Nippon Paint team. We chose a modern luxe theme for our home, which calls for darker neutrals and luxurious elements like marble and gold. For our living room, we went with the Momento Elegant textured paint series as we preferred something dark to provide contrast for our paintings. The outcome of the paint is heavily dependent on the brush style of the painter, and it turned out way better than we expected.

During our site inspection, the Nippon Paint team also recommended a black marble feature wall for our master bedroom when they heard of our interest in the Momento Special Effects Paint. Our thoughts then were, “you can paint black marble?!”. We might have blurted those thoughts out then. Here’s the end result.

Probably the masterpiece of our rendition of a modern luxe home. We absolutely loved the black marble feature wall, as it looks and even feels like a solid whole piece of black marble tile. If you are wondering the difference between that and the actual black marble, take a closer look at the next picture.

Not much difference I would argue! The painters did a great job with the swirls and veins of the black marble feature wall, almost akin to the real thing itself.

To share more, Nippon Momento Special Effects Paint comes in various series to fit your preferred home theme. You can achieve the luxurious look of marble or granite without having to burn a hole in your pocket. Their lookbook covers numerous themes such as industrial, minimalist, natural, and many more, while their Nippon Momento collections provided us with the inspiration for our living room feature wall.

2. Say hello to safer paints for your family

Safe Painting Singapore for Families

Walls in your living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and exteriors are exposed to different elements and varying degrees of weathering. Each needs a different type of paint to withstand any wear and tear.

Nippon Paint Odour-less All-in-1

For the rest of our walls in our home, Nippon Paint recommended the odour-less all-in-1 interior wall paint. This paint features a new breakthrough formula that reduces the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) levels to almost zero. With that, we did not experience any paint odour after the painters completed their work. Colours-wise, the site inspection team recommended the Genteel colour (light bluish grey) for most of the walls, and Snow Flakes colour (off white) for the guest room, study room, and the kitchen.

The recommendations were a great help as the Nippon Paint colour book was probably too comprehensive for us. More to choose from is great, but selection can very well be a bigger headache, so simply ask for advice! After all, they have consulted on hundreds, if not thousands of new homes.

Nippon Paint Odour-less Anti-Mould Ceiling White

We used the odour-less anti-mould ceiling paint for our ceilings, having witnessed certain conspicuous black spots above my bathroom during my early childhood years. This paint is specially formulated for ceilings in moisture-exposed areas like kitchens, bathrooms, as well as areas with air conditioners that are prone to developing mildew.

Nippon Paint Mozzieguard

We discovered something interesting on Nippon Paint’s website during our research phase which we thought could possibly add value for homeowners. The Nippon Paint MozzieGuard has a special coating formulated with insecticide encapsulated in the polymer. (Not to worry, it is safe for indoor application) Once an Aedes aegypti mosquito lands on the painted surface, the active ingredients instantly incapacitate it, keeping you and your family safe from dengue and the Zika virus. If your new home is in an area with the occasional irritating mozzies buzzing near your ears, it might be worth it to try this out!

3. Hire professional painting services for quality and save more with packages

Nippon Paint Painting Singapore

Search “painting singapore” on Google and you will find tons of painting companies, with many claiming to be the cheapest and reliable. Sure, there might be cheaper options out there, but the risk of poor workmanship just did not sit right for us. Quality was our main concern as it was our new home after all. Since most painting companies used Nippon Paint for their painting jobs, we figured, why not get the main guys to do the job?

We went with their most popular odour-less package with Nippon Paint. Promotions were pretty great as well, offering perks ranging from a free air fryer, extended warranty, to a free upgrade to the odour-less anti-mould ceiling white for the entire house. And if you are lucky, the 1st prize in their grand draw is $3,888 cash!

Overall, workmanship and the aesthetic advice given were great. The team managed to capture the essence of our desired modern luxe theme with the two exquisite feature walls, providing the perfect backdrop for some of our paintings. They even recommended us with the complementing colours of Genteel and Snow Flakes, which was probably the toughest decision on our part.

4. Choose the right colour and texture to fit your home theme

Colours and texture play an immense role in creating an exciting yet cohesive design for your home. Before proceeding on your paint job, you need to understand the paint-texture compatibility and the colour palettes that complement your chosen interior style. What would be a good background for your furniture and art pieces? Which colour would bring out the best of your desired theme? I would highly recommend researching on Pinterest for tons of inspiration, or Nippon Paint’s own version of Pinterest – colour ideas.

Here are a couple of other popular home themes for your inspiration:

Scandinavian Inspired Painting Singapore

Scandinavian

Defined by light, texture, clean space, and natural elements, the minimalism that often accompanies Scandinavian interiors makes it a popular choice in recent years. While most go for white or light neutrals when doing Scandinavian, this living room by Prozfile Design adds geometric shapes in soft hues to make a beautifully textured feature wall, infusing an air of cosiness to an otherwise blank space.

Industrial Eclectic

Metal, concrete, brick, and wood – these are the main elements of industrial design. Eclectic, on the other hand, breaks restrictions by combining textures and time periods. This living room and dining room by Free Space Intent merges the two styles together seamlessly by using the signature grayish hue of industrial design as a backdrop for interesting art pieces and quirky decor that defines eclectic.

Vintage

Contrary to what the name suggests, the vintage interior style doesn’t merely create a room suspended in time. Instead, this design yearns to connect yesterday and today through a balanced mix of nostalgic elements like old photos with modern furniture and appliances. This living room by Black N White Haus takes the neutral route, creating an airy, elegant space with a distinct old world charm.

Contemporary

The contemporary style is all about clean lines, neutrals, space, and tasteful splashes of colour. This bedroom by Home Philosophy brings this style into 2019 by playing with a trending colour: mint green. With a well-placed dark green contrast, the overall look feels more intense and alive.

If you want to get a clearer sense of your dream aesthetics, we recommend downloading the Nippon Paint Colour Visualizer app. This handy application allows you to select and apply paint colours on your home pictures on the go. Simply snap photos of the spaces you want to paint and upload them onto the app. You will be able to paint around your bed, sofa, and furniture while preserving shadows and textures to get a realistic impression of how different Nippon Paint colours would look like in your home. Pretty neat stuff, especially if you have bought your furniture or looking to redesign your home.

5. Start painting your dream home!

Nippon Paint - Professional Painting Service Singapore

While hiring a professional painter means paying a bit more, the efficiency, long-lasting quality, and peace of mind that you get are well worth it. It might just end up saving you more over the long run if the painting service otherwise is substandard or inferior materials are used.

Seeking for inspiration for our dream home theme, and watching it turn into a reality was the part that we enjoyed the most. Special thanks to Shelly and Andy from Nippon Paint for all your advice and execution. For those who are embarking on your home renovation journey, cherish the fun moments and paint away!

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

“In this issue, we introduce Baywater Kitchen by Privé Group, a waterfront wedding venue at Keppel Bay perfect for unique nautical weddings. Combining an elegant yet relaxed setting with fresh seafood from the sea, your guests are bound to be swept away.”

Speaking to modern brides, most wish for an unrestricted, casual setting for their wedding, but at the same time, wishing for the venue to be unique and one-of-a-kind. Finding a perfect combination of the two definitely is not an easy task, but Privé Group recently opened up a new venue that fits the bill.

Situated on Singapore’s only private island, Keppel Island, Bayswater Kitchen is not only unique for its waterfront setting, but its casual Mediterranean vibe presents a unique nautical experience for you and your guests. With both indoor and outdoor spaces available, you can choose to hold your wedding solemnization in the breezy alfresco area right by the waters, followed by your dinner reception in the elegant yet cosy indoor area. Voted as “Best of 2017” under New Restaurant by The Straits Times, read on to find out what else is in store at Bayswater Kitchen for your big day!

1. A wedding venue that allows you to escape the city buzz

As city folks, our fast-paced and hectic lifestyles often let us forget that we are on a beautiful island surrounded by relaxing waters. At Bayswater Kitchen, its breathtaking waterfront views of the marina will instantly transport you out of the city and into a holiday mood. A fleet of luxury yachts and Sentosa in the distance will serve as the backdrop of your ‘I Dos’.

Designed by HUI designs, the restaurant’s Mediterranean-inspired decor consisting of wooden chairs, maritime-striped cushions, and a boat bar is reminiscent of island life. It gives rise to a casual, uninhibited atmosphere so that your guests can enjoy the evening without any restraint. For couples looking to move away from the conventional formal setting of a ballroom, this chic spot will refresh your guests with sunshine and fresh air. Additionally, Bayswater Kitchen seamlessly integrates outdoor and indoor spaces together, allowing your guests to experience the best of both worlds. With a setting so calm and serene, you will find it easy to let your hair down.

2. Bringing the freshness of the Mediterranean to you

On top of the promise of fresh air and sunlight grace, Bayswater Kitchen seemingly brings the Mediterranean right to you. Its open kitchen breathes life and buzz to your wedding as guests can see live-cooking action right before their eyes. With the kitchen helmed by chef de cuisine Jack Allibone, who has over 10 years of experience and most recently worked as sous-chef at award-winning seafood restaurant Angler in London, you can rest assured that the team will prepare mouthwatering dishes for your celebration.

Bayswater Kitchen’s menu boasts fresh seasonal produce that is prepared simply yet creativity. Their objective, simple – to enhance each ingredient’s inherent freshness and flavour. Their seafood dishes present grounded yet uplifting flavours that are clean and never fail to deliver a tasteful experience. Signature must-try dishes include Tuna Tartare with Avocado, Lime Dressing and Crispy Shallot, Chargrilled Octopus with Smoked Roe, Gremolata and Borlotti Beans and last but not least, the best being their Fisherman’s Feast. This hefty dish is comprised of prawns, mussels, squids, and seasonal fish – well-cooked with seafood stock & tomato and served with hand-rolled Linguine.

Check out their set lunch and ala-carte menu.

3. Delighting meat and veggie-lovers too

At Bayswater Kitchen, it might start with seafood, but it surely does not end there. On top of their expertise in creating fresh seafood dishes, Bayswater Kitchen also caters to meat lovers and vegetarians with their juicy steaks and refreshing salads! Protein-lovers, be sure to try their flavorful Duroc pork chop, tender hormone-free chicken, and for veggie-fans, delight in their grilled radicchio orange braised fennel with cracked wheat and courgette. Bayswater Kitchen also has a bites menu that makes great canapés to kickstart your reception – the crisp calamari with lemon garlic sauce is a winner.

Aside from their food menus, Bayswater Kitchen also features an extensive wine and bar menu. Their curated list of international wines includes crisp roses and sparkling wines that pair perfectly with their main courses, whether seafood or meat. Their bar menu features a range of beautifully crafted cocktails that definitely gets the party started. A must-try would be their in-house Bayswater Piña Colada. Combining the complex aroma of mount gay rum with the sweetness of pineapple juice, zest of orange juice, and the creaminess of coconut cream, lastly topped with dry rose petals and angostura bitters powder.. you just found yourself a drink that you cannot stop going back for.

4. A cosy and elegant setting for a celebration

Whether in the day or evening, Bayswater Kitchen’s cosy and elegant setting is perfect for a celebration. Its indoor and outdoor spaces make it fun for you to seat your guests. With family members seated indoors and friends freely roaming outdoors, you get dedicated spaces for each group to have fun, but at the same time, keeping everybody together. I suggest booking the entire venue to enjoy the exclusive space all to yourselves. Best hours are during dusk where sunset takes over the skies!

The full venue can accommodate up to 450 guests for a cocktail reception, 220-260 guests for a sit-down dinner, and 400 guests for a buffet, making it one of the alternative restaurant venues with a larger capacity. This gastronomic destination with its approachable seafood-centric dishes sure for a fun, casual, waterfront wedding.

The restaurant also houses a multipurpose recreation room equipped with ping pong table for some fun engaging activities if you’d like.

5. Versatile & flexible wedding options

As Bayswater Kitchen also aims to make wedding planning a smooth experience for couples, their wedding package has a simple table set up that includes a table runner, bottle vases, table numbering, tea lights, consistent with the nautical seaside theme. A bridal room, stage area, projector, and screens, microphones are also available for your usage. For those who worry about guests who are driving, there are 180 sheltered parking lots for your guests ($2.50/hour).

Bayswater Kitchen also has value-added services that you can add on to enhance the romantic atmosphere, such as a Deejay, customised ice sculpture, customized cocktails (great for thematic weddings), and wedding favours. They can also set up a transparent marquee with fairy lights or ivy leaves if you would like to have your solemnization outdoors! It will definitely make your celebration even more unforgettable and special.

With the Mediterranean known for it’s fun and relaxing seaside vibes, Bayswater Kitchen aims to bring that beauty and experience to you.

Smart Designer Blinds and Curtains in Singapore by mc.2

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

When it comes to decorating your dream home, several elements contribute a noticeable impact on the look and feel of your space – one of which is natural light. Often left as an afterthought, blinds and curtains do influence the final outcome of a room’s interior design, primarily by controlling the amount of natural light that shines in.

Through the years, blinds and curtains have moved past providing mere functionality into becoming integral decor elements. Curtains come in a myriad of fabrics, density, patterns, trims, and colors. With the right combination of characteristics, curtains can add depth and drama to an otherwise plain-looking home. Blinds, on the other hand, are perfect for modern and minimalist homes featuring a clean, sleek feel.

Choosing the right blinds or curtains to complement your dream home can be tough though, especially with endless choices of fabrics and colours. We’ve been through that, having sieved through photo after photo on Pinterest and still having no clue on what to get for our new home! This is when mc.2 came in really handy, with a smart blind fashion gallery for inspiration, and professional consultants to assist on design elements. In this issue, let us share

1. Furnish your home with the latest smart blinds and curtains from world-renowned premier brands

2. Draw home decor inspiration from Singapore’s first smart blind fashion gallery

mc2 Smart Fashion Blinds and Curtains Gallery Singapore

In this digital era, shopping can be done in a couple of minutes on your smartphone or laptop. However, there are certain things that screens simply do not do justice to, such as blinds and curtains. When it comes to choosing the right blinds and curtains, it is not only important to see the actual product in person, but to feel the texture and spot the minor details or patterns that you may otherwise miss seeing online. With this in mind, mc.2 opened Singapore’s first ever smart blinds and curtains fashion gallery, tastefully designed to inspire homeowners.

At a whopping 4,200 square feet, homeowners can experience the different hues, textures, and functionalities of the vast array of products available – smart blinds, motorised curtains, floorings, marbles, wallpaper, and more. See the elegant marble island at the entrance? That could very well be your kitchen island! For families with kids and pets, be sure to check out mc.2’s child safe features with its cordless alternatives to motorised operation systems.

3. Experience elegance and convenience with the latest technology

Smart homes are trending, and so are smart, motorised blinds. Via reputable brands such as RENSON, ALTEX, Somfy, and more, one can now control blinds via mobile apps or even voice recognition through Google Home or Amazon Alexa. Way to impress your guests! On the practical side, this eliminates the need for cords, which pose as a safety risk to children and pets. No cords also means less clutter, which may complement a minimalist or modern theme well.

Featuring Singapore’s first and only curtain shaping technology, mc.2’s curtains always maintain their pristine shape, no matter how much you play around with the curtains. Having gotten ALTEX curtains for our master bedroom and living room, we put the technology to the test, and the curtains always fall back neatly in place. Pretty impressive stuff, might we add.

4. Utilize your untapped spaces with ALTEX SecureZIP outdoor blinds

Homes in Singapore tend to be smaller, which may serve as a challenge to fit all your furniture in your living and dining room. mc.2’s ALTEX SecureZIP outdoor blinds help to extend your indoor floor area, by converting your outdoor balcony into a liveable indoor space. Your balcony can now be transformed into a dining area, thereby expanding your living room floor area.

If you are one to support local businesses, you’d be happy to know that ALTEX is a Singapore local brand. The ingenious ALTEX SecureZIP is its star product which shot to fame with over 10,000 panels installed island-wide, being featured in the local news and multiple magazines.

5. Seek design advice from mc.2’s professional consultants

With the sheer number of options at mc.2’s showroom, homeowners might get overwhelmed. We certainly did feel so with the immense variety, and weren’t too sure on what to select to match our modern luxe theme. The consultants at mc.2 were professional and experienced, with Dylan recommending the respective blinds and curtains to suit our home. Sifting through tons of catalogues was no easy feat, and we highly recommend speaking to one of their consultants to assist you. On top of that, Dylan even went beyond his job scope by suggesting certain furniture that would better complement our chosen theme.

The plus side for mc.2 is its price transparency. You can expect to be billed the same be it through an interior designer, a contractor, or just by settling it on your own.

All in all, we found mc.2 great for its premier brands, smart innovative blinds and curtains, and professionalism through its consultants.

[India Honeymoon Guide] The Golden Triangle part 1 – Things to Do in New Delhi

American Express True Cashback Card Signup Lucky Draw

“In this issue, we take you to explore India’s most famous and possibly most romantic tourist route – The Golden Triangle. Comprising of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, these 3 most-visited cities in North India together will fascinate you like no other place on earth.”

India has always been on our bucket list. Yes, mostly because of the famous Taj Mahal. But after our visit to India this year, we discovered that amidst its congested roads and insane crowds lies an amazing country filled with rich culture, majestic architecture and amazing food. Our journey encompassed every tourist’s classic introduction to India – the Golden Triangle, which comprises of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Well connected to each other by good roads and railway, you will find that getting around is easier than you think. Here’s our travel guide bringing you the best of the Golden Triangle, and everything you need to know – where to stay, what to do and when to go, starting with Delhi.

1. Experience the finest luxury at The Imperial New Delhi

It was our first visit to India, and as usual, there were first-time jitters but we felt right at home at The Imperial New Delhi. This luxury hotel lives up to its name as ‘The Best Heritage Hotel’ and offers a tranquil respite from the buzz of the city outside. The moment we stepped in its grandeur and glory, it felt like we traveled back in the era of 1934, the time it was erected. Every room in the hotel welcomes guests with a charming colonial layout and luxurious amenities. Vintage yet posh at the same time, the furnishings offered us comfort from a long day of sightseeing. The bed, topped with a Posturepedic mattress and with linen exclusive from France, made it easy to get a restful slumber. It’s no wonder they are ranked as one of India’s Top Hotels in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2018.

When it comes to dining options, there are plenty of choices! If you are looking to sample local Indian flavors, head on to Daniell’s Tavern. The Spice Route serves Southeast Asian cuisine while Nostalgia and San Gimignano go west, serving French and Italian fare respectively. If you find yourself indecisive on which cuisine to pick, the 1911 Restaurant presents a wide selection of international cuisines to try all at once; it’s your call!

The Imperial Spa is a must-visit. We highly recommend getting a couples massage, for their couple’s suite is one of the most luxurious suites we have experienced. Decked fully in white marble, the suite is spacious and comes complete with its own private jacuzzi, steam room, massage beds, and relaxation areas. The spa uses their own brand of products that are 100% organic, and their therapists are highly trained to give personal consultations on the various therapy treatments they offer. Before and after the massage, they served us juices and tea, while giving us plenty of time to enjoy the suite facilities, making it impossible to not feel relaxed and pampered.

The Imperial New Delhi brings its classic old world charm into the 21st century while keeping the atmosphere and service consistently top-notch and up-to-date. It was a worthwhile experience and in our opinion, deserves to be in every couple’s honeymoon checklist.

2. Soak in the energy at India’s local markets – Chandni Chowk & Spice Market

Source

You are not in India if you have yet to experience their local markets. Chandni Chowk, located in the centre of New Delhi was created by Shah Jahan all the way back in 1650A.D., and today still remains one of the most vibrant parts of the city. You will find stalls lined up narrow alleyways peddling goods of all sorts – from spices to scent, clothes to electronics. It was initially a little overwhelming for me, but it is a pretty exhilarating experience.

Just as frenzied as Chandni Chowk and located west of it is the Spice Market, both in Old Delhi. This is the most prominent spice market in Asia. The sheer number of spices to choose from, coupled with their intense aromas, can be pretty overwhelming but also pleasant to look at with all their different colors. You can also buy nuts and dried fruit here.

For an orderly alternative, try Dili Haat, a handicraft village. An admission fee of INR100 will lead you past the gates into a more calm atmosphere. Vendors here are friendly and the atmosphere is less hectic, though prices will be slightly higher.

3. Discover the majestic Jama Masjid

Source

After Chandni Chowk, you can head to Jama Masjid and the Red Fort, both located close by. Jama Masjid is the largest mosque in India and can hold up to 25,000 people. This massive structure is an architectural masterpiece and a sight to behold. Made out of red sandstone and marble, it was built in 1656 by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, who also built the Taj Mahal. Admission is free, but there is a guy at the entrance collecting a camera fee of INR 300.

Getting There: You can walk from the Old Delhi Railway station, or if you are coming from the modern Metro, the closest one is Chawri Bazaar Stn., which is 500 meters away.
Opening Hours: Daily, 7:00am-12:00pm, 1:30pm-6:30pm
Admission: Free Entry; INR 300 for camera fee

4. Stroll the compounds of the Red Fort

Source

You can catch a glimpse of the red fort while wandering the courtyard of Jama Masjid. But a short ride away will bring you right to the centre of Old Delhi, where these towering red sandstone walls that extend over 2km are hard to miss. Built on the banks of the Yamuna, the red fort was also known as Lal Qila and was home to the Mughal emperors for over two centuries.

Getting There: Take Delhi’s metro services and drop off on the nearest station which is Chandni Chowk
Opening Hours: Tue-Sun from sunrise to sunset
Entrance Fee: INR 500 – there is a separate tourist queue that is much shorter than the one for locals

5. Delight in contemporary living and delicious dining at Andaz by Hyatt Delhi

A mere 15 minutes from the airport will transport you to a realm of contemporary living and delicious dining. Breaking the stereotype of near-airport hotels, Andaz by Hyatt Delhi is modern, spacious and thoughtfully designed with locally inspired details. Each guestroom contains one of 401 unique artworks inspired by Delhi. Each morning, awake from your slumber in plush bedding, with pillows handpicked from a menu. Rays of sunshine streak in through the wide windows as you lounge on the daybed admiring a courtyard or runway view.

AnnaMaya serves up a delectable spread for breakfast and an all-day dining menu that is designed around consciously-sourced ingredients from local artisans. This modern European Food Hall inspired by the colours and flavours of India serves up some of the most delicious Indian food we tasted in our 3 weeks in India. Their dessert bar is also equally enticing, and they make exquisite artisanal products not to be missed.

The Hong Kong Club is a bar, club, restaurant, and lounge all-in-one, that is definitely my choice to unwind when dusk falls. Featuring dramatic modern Chinese interiors, it adds a sense of flavour within Andaz’s modern contemporary setting. Our visit to The Hong Kong Club had us enjoying handcrafted cocktails inspired by our Zodiac signs, and tucking into dim sum and snacks inspired by Hong Kong-Cantonese flavours.

Another stop to make is Juniper Bar, an open-concept gin bar that makes a perfect place to socialise while experiencing a diverse selection of 35 stylised gin and tonic infusions. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where you can interact with the bartender and order any drink that meets your fancy. For the ultimate honeymoon, be sure to stop by the Andaz Spa and enjoy a soothing massage that aims to revitalise and re-energize your senses. Guided by your Chakra energy and desire, products for your journey will be handcrafted at the Apothecary blending bar. For honeymooners looking to have a relaxing time in Delhi, Andaz has it in store for you. Andaz Delhi also has a 10,800 sq ft ballroom and an intimate alfresco area for a romantic wedding venue.

6. Explore the fascinating Qutub Minar complex

Source

On your next morning, head to Mehrauli, home to the Qutub Minar complex. Standing in stark contrast against the sky, with its peak 73 meters high, Qutub Minar is the tallest minaret in India. Erected almost a millennia ago, the entire structure is built using red sandstone, like many of the other architectural landmarks in India. Explore the complex and you will find some Mughal tombs and an iron pillar that is over 2,000 years old.

Getting There: From Qutub Minar metro station (yellow line), it takes 20 minutes walk to get to the monument.
Opening Hours: daily, 7:00AM–6:30PM (weekdays), 7:00AM–7:00PM (weekends)
Admission: INR 600

7. Visit Humayun’s Tomb at Lodhi Gardens

Source

At Lodhi Gardens, visit Humayun’s Tomb, built by Mughal emperor Humayun’s first wife nine years after he died. The mausoleum sits in the middle of a tranquil garden with small water channels running around it, a literal representation of rest in peace. There are several other tombs in Lodhi Gardens as well.

Getting There: From the Jor Bagh Metro Station, exit to Gate 1 or 2. It takes 5-10 mintues walk from there.
Opening Hours: daily, sunrise to sunset
Admission: Free

8. Marvel at the amazing Swaminarayan Akshardham

Source

One of the most impressive monuments we saw in Delhi is Swaminarayan Akshardham. The compound, which resembles that of a theme park, is cordoned off quite strictly and you are required to hand over all camera and phone equipment before you enter. But the trouble is definitely worth it, for this grand temple complex is a Guinness World Record holder as the largest comprehensive Hindu Temple. Though constructed pretty recently in 2005, the main exhibit hall will leave you in awe, for the intricately carved marble walls and ceilings are fascinating.

Getting There: From Akshardham Metro Station exit, turn right until and walk 100 meters and then turn right again to walk another 250 meters and enter Gate 1 of Akshardham
Opening Hours: Tues-Sat, first entry: 9:30AM, last entry: 6:30PM, exhibition 10:00AM-5:00PM
Admission:

  • Complex Entrance Fee: Free
  • Exhibition Fee: free for children below 4 yrs., INR100 (children 4-11yrs), INR170 (adults), INR125 (senior citizens)
  • Musical Fountain Fee: free for children below 4 yrs., INR20 (children 4-11yrs), INR30 (adults), INR30 (senior citizens)

9. Get inspired by the amazing Lotus Temple

Source

Another architectural marvel not to be missed is the Lotus Temple. The sacred lotus flower is a symbol of peace, and this temple is beautifully designed with 27 petals made of marble. It is a gorgeous sight and is slightly reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House too!  

Getting There: Take a five-minute walk from the Kalkaji Mandir metro station (violet line).
Opening Hours: Tues-Sun, 9:00AM-5:30PM (Oct-Mar), 9:00AM-7:00PM (Apr-Sept)
Admission: Free

10. Stop by the India Gate

Source

On your journey from the airport to the city, you may want to stop by the India Gate for a quick photo. Constructed to honor the undivided Indian Army who sacrificed themselves in WWI, this war memorial serves as a significant landmark of the city’s past. Tourists and locals do like to hang around here during evenings.

Getting There: Get off at Barakhamba Road Metro Station on the blue line of the Delhi Metro. Then take a cab and reach the gate in roughly 15 minutes.
Opening Hours: Open all year
Admission: Free

The air is always buzzing with energy in New Delhi, which makes the quiet spots all the more refreshing and alluring. During trips, it is essential to have your own peace and quiet to reflect, instead of just going through the flow and pace of your surroundingsNew Delhi can give you that essence of travelling. Visiting here takes being a tourist to a whole new level; a surprising mix of authentic Indian slice-of-life and otherworldly escapes into history. There was never a dull moment for us here, and we recommended that you also give this lively district a chance.

6 Reasons to Get Restful Sleep with a Simmons Mattress

American Express True Cashback Card TCB Wedding Promotion

We all suffer from some form of sleep deprivation. Our hectic work and social lives have reduced our sleeping hours to sometimes a mere 4-5 hours when the recommended duration is 7-9 hours. According to a study by SingHealth Polyclinics, 4 in 10 people suffer from a lack of sleep on weekdays! In fact, Singaporeans sleep the least, even less compared to people in Japan and Hong Kong. Due to sleep deprivation, we often feel restless when we wake up, rather than recharged. We are guilty of relying on that morning coffee to jerk us into our daily routine.

When searching for a new mattress for our new home, we found a simple way to solve restlessness. One that was right under our nose! Instead of struggling to find more hours of sleep, solving restlessness can be as natural as getting better quality sleep. Sleeping on a good quality mattress that suits your sleeping posture can contribute greatly to a deeper, more restful sleep. Even if you were to sleep for shorter hours on a suitable mattress, you might feel more refreshed than if you were to sleep on one that does not suit you. We placed a lot of effort to find our dream mattress, and we found Simmons to be a great one-stop for all your sleep needs. In this issue, let us share with you our experience with Simmons and 6 reasons why you probably will want a Simmons mattress for yourselves.

1. Sleep as soundly as you would in a 5-star luxury hotel

Simmons Mattress - Beautyrest Marina Bay Suite

When the world’s best 5-star hotels use a particular brand, you can be assured that it is top-of-the-line. I vividly remember our trip to Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa in Kota Kinabalu, where we had some of our most restful nights of sleep. On top of the impeccable service and majestic infinity pools, the Simmons mattresses were merely on point. Soft with a luxurious plush pillow top, yet firm and providing just the right amount of support.

On top of Shangri-La, Simmons proudly provides a heavenly sleeping experience to guests of 5-star hotels such as the Marriott International (operator of luxury chains like W Hotels, St. Regis, and Westin Hotels & Resorts), Resorts World Sentosa, The Fullerton Bay, Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay Sands®, and many more. 9 out of 10 prestigious hotels in Singapore use Simmons mattresses, giving testimony to Simmons’ distinguished quality standard. We’ve checked it out, the list of hotels is really long..

2. Find the perfect mattress with your preferred firmness

Having over 148 years of heritage to understand its customers and perfect the sleep technology, Simmons currently has 2 major product series to suit the needs of the modern day customer – the Beautyrest® series and BackCare® series; each series features mattresses with different firmness, all specially catered to meet your preferences. I personally experience some form of lower backache, especially after a day long of sports, hence the BackCare series sounded pretty appealing.

BackCare® Series, for better support for your back

Simmons Mattress - BackCare Luxury

If you often wake up with aching muscles and back pain, it is likely that your mattress is not giving you sufficient back support. The Simmons BackCare® series uses a variety of foams that range from Aircool™ Memory Foam, Cold Foam, to fused latex and memory foam to provide ideal support and comfort. Selected models in the BackCare® series are created using the revolutionary e-Ion Crystal™ Technology, which features negative-ion fibres emitting negative ions for enhancement benefits, and far-infrared rays which promotes blood circulation and boosts metabolism. Simmons’ e-ion crystal mattress series has also been classified as a “Class 1 Medical Device” in Japan.

The Simmons BackCare® Luxury mattress was probably the highlight of our trip to the Simmons flagship store at Capitol Piazza. It definitely surpassed my expectations, featuring medium firmness and a super pillow top sleep surface finish, which is a pillow pad that is loftier and plusher than others. This addition exudes opulence through its collection of high-quality materials such as wool, latex, and memory foam.

Beautyrest® Series, for quality undisturbed sleep

Simmons Mattress - Beautyrest® Marina Bay Suite

The Beautyrest® series is Simmons’ first mattress line, celebrating 90 years of bringing wonderful sleep in 2017. Did you know that a person tosses and turns around 40-60 times each night? When sleeping with your partner, this number can increase due to your partner’s movements. Simmons’ Pocketed Coil® design, which is used in Beautyrest® and all other mattress series, mitigates this by minimizing motion transfer. High carbon steel springs are pre-compressed and placed in durable, non-allergenic fabric encasements. This allows the Pocketed Coil® springs to adjust individually to the weight and contour of your body, and since adjacent springs are not tied together, voila, there is no chain reaction or movement when you toss and turn at night.

Moreover, these pocketed oils are solely manufactured by Simmons with their very own machines and technology, thereby ensuring high quality and standards. Pocketed coils may be a norm in the bedding industry, but most are manufactured by OEM machines and supplied to many different brands. 

If you are looking for a firm mattress, the Beautyrest® Marina Bay Suite mattress comes highly recommended by Simmons. It features the Simmons Pocketed Coil® and a pillow-top sleep surface finish to provide added comfort, support, and luxury. Sleeping at home will now feel like sleeping soundly at the luxurious Marina Bay Suite!

3. Experience luxury and privacy when choosing your dream mattress

Simmons Flagship Gallery Capitol Piazza

Simmons spared no expenses when it came to their flagship store at Capitol Piazza. We were treated with a bespoke, personalised experience via a luxurious lifestyle showroom concept. High ceilings, elegant chandeliers and exquisite art pieces exuded luxury while each mattress of different series was displayed tastefully, making the shopping experience a thoroughly enjoyable one. The charming decor (especially the feature walls and rugs) even gave us some food for thought for our own home decor.

Simmons Mattress - Capitol Piazza Flagship Store

Often, we tend to lie down for a couple of seconds when trying out a mattress, then hop on to the next to see which is most comfortable. In fact, to accurately gauge a mattress’ comfort level, one should lie on it for a few minutes in your most common sleeping position with your sleeping partner beside you for the best experience. Tossing and turning are encouraged to see how your movement may affect your other partner. So yes, don’t be shy, try curling up if that is your sleeping position! This methodological approach adopted by the sales staff at Simmons greatly helped us to identify a suitable Simmons mattress. The sales staff also recommended trying a maximum of 3 mattresses at a time, ideally each with a different level of firmness.

We started by trying out the BackCare® Luxury first which provided medium firmness, then the Beautyrest® Silver Celestine Clouds for the softer mattress. Eventually, we ended up fancying the medium firmness of the BackCare® Luxury, which more than surpassed our expectations of a dream mattress.

4. Sleep more comfortably with Simmons’ cool mattresses

Simmons Cool Mattress - Restorative Benefits of a Good Night Rest

The Beautyrest® Black

Singapore sits on the tropical belt, which makes it hot and humid throughout the year. If you like to save the environment (and your electrical costs) by not cranking up the air conditioner, a mattress that can keep you cool while you sleep would be warmly welcomed. Warmly.. the irony.

The Beautyrest® Black, a top-of-the-line series for Simmons, features Micro Diamond™ Infused AirCool® Memory Foam that draws on diamonds’ conductive properties to help remove heat away from your body, leaving you with a cool, comfortable sleep. It also contains a layer of latex with gel, which is an antimicrobial, natural foam layer that promotes superior air circulation. The Beautyrest® Black also features a Beautyrest® Mist Foam comes with a moisture control function wherein it releases or absorbs moisture to maintain a constant humidity level.

Another Simmons mattress that keeps you fresh throughout the night is the Simmons Beautyrest® Reef Water Suite. It features CoolMax Fabric, which dissipates heat and provides consistent comfort while you sleep.

5. Maximize sleep comfort with Simmons pocketed coil pillows

Simmons Pillow Sleep

Pillows usually take a backseat when considering sleep comfort. I’d admit that I have always thought that the mattress is way more important, and have always stuck to cheap pillows, changing them every half year. But boy, does a good pillow change the game entirely!

A good pillow assists to keep your upper spine aligned and maintains your spine’s natural S-shape. You may suffer from muscle strain, cramps or neck aches and stiffness if your pillow is too soft or not at the correct height to provide proper support for your neck. Abnormal neck positions during sleep narrow your windpipe and obstruct breathing, which could be the source of snoring. All these discomforts are likely to disrupt your sleep, resulting in fatigue, lower productivity, and poor mood throughout the day.

Simmons® Beautyrest® NeckCare Pillow

Simmons NeckCare Pillows 2018

When it comes to pillows, we think of polyester, cotton, memory foam, goose feather, microbead and more. But have you heard of pocketed coil pillows? Yes, they exist, and they are top of the line! Simmons Beautyrest® NeckCare Pillow is the first pocketed coil pillow in the bedding industry with the following features:

  • Sixty pocketed coils can be adjusted instantly to your unique build and any sleeping position, supporting your head and neck for perfect spinal alignment
  • Air pockets help to maintain a comfortable temperature for peaceful sleep
  • Encased in 100% premium cotton twill
  • Non-allergenic
  • Bacteria-free
  • Available in four levels of firmness

The four levels of firmness of the Beautyrest® NeckCare Pillow are: NeckCare 1 is soft, NeckCare 2 medium, NeckCare 3 is firm, and NeckCare 4 is ultra firm. We personally recommend either NeckCare 2 or 3, 3 if you prefer a firmer, higher pillow. We chose NeckCare 2 by the way, it was way too comfy at the showroom. As pillow preference varies for individuals, it would be best to head down to the showrooms to try it for yourselves.

Simmons® Beautyrest® NextGen Pillow

Simmons Beautyrest NextGen Memory Foam Pillows

We definitely got excited with the pocketed coil NeckCare pillows above. But if you are a fan of memory foam pillows, this would probably be heaven for you. The Simmons® Beautyrest® NextGen Pillow features:

  • A combination of pocketed coils and memory foam that moulds to the shape of your head and neck
  • Certified ergonomic design assists in properly aligning your neck and spine
  • Heat sensitive, adapts to your movements and provide continuous support and relief to your neck and muscles
  • Encased in 100% premium cotton twill
  • Non-allergenic
  • Available in three levels of firmness

Simmons Kids Mattress - AllergyCare

Aligned with Simmon’s goal of providing quality sleep to customers of all ages, the brand also offers a line of mattresses specifically designed for children. The Simmons BackCare® Kids mattress is treated with AllergyCare™, an anti-allergen and anti-microbial preservative that protects against microbes and dust mites and designed to last perpetually. AllergyCare™ is completely safe for your child as it is non-pesticide based. An additional anti-microbial treatment eliminates entire colonies of bacteria and fungus.

“Accidents” on the mattresses do happen every now and then. Trip down to memory lane.. Well, the good news is that every single Simmons BackCare® Kids mattress is covered with MoistureBan™ which repels liquid while still providing the ultimate comfort in a breathable and durable fabric. Any types of water or oil spills will easily roll off the fabric without seeping into the fibres, keeping your child’s mattress dry and hygienic at all times. Both BackCare® Kids 1 and BackCare® Kids 2 are designed with RiteHeight™, so no matter what kind of bed your child has – be it bunk, day, trundle beds, boxspring, or bedframe, there is a Simmons mattress that will fit right in!

If you are looking to stop the reliance on caffeine in the morning and live life fully charged instead, head down to the flagship store at Simmons Gallery Capitol Piazza and seek out your dream mattress. The Simmons Gallery Capitol Piazza is open from 10:30AM – 9:00PM.

Turning your Wedding Moments into Artistic Captures, by FSQUARED Photography

In this issue, we present FSQUARED Photography and their unique take on photography. Featured in our Noteworthy Photographers and Top 10 Wedding Photographers in Singapore, the brothers duo will freeze your wedding moments in artistic captures.

Long gone are the days where couples stand around in awkward poses as the photographer snaps a shot. Combining their photojournalism approach with artistic angles and innovative light play, the brothers duo at FSQUARED Photography turns wedding photography into an enjoyable and creative process for couples. Using photography, their philosophy is to bring back the past into the present each time you look at these photos, allowing you to walk down memory lane and reminisce every moment of bliss to its fullest.

Since 2016, FSQUARED Photography has been providing couples with wedding photography packages that preserves your wedding memories in beautiful stills. The team also prides themselves on their flexibility in customizing packages catering to your needs, as they aim to give you the freedom for special requests. Read on to find out more!

1. A refreshing take on photography

Every couple comes to them with a unique love story. The brothers, Farhan and Faez, believe that only with a personalised approach can the magic shine through, and steers away from a cookie-cutter approach. They see each wedding photoshoot as an opportunity to tell a romantic story, express creativity, and showcase the couples’ personalities.

Great photos are not captured by merely pointing and shooting the camera. It takes talent and a keen eye to frame the shot, direct movement and capture the key moments. Furthermore, you need the right technique to angle the shot, play with light, adjust the settings, and more. At FSQUARED Photography, their work is inspired by natural light and light play on shapes and space. Their experience in working with great lighting and their attention to detail helps to bring out the best in each capture, and gives rise to refreshing shots.

2. Turning wedding photography into art

On top of being able to capture intimate moments, FSQUARED Photography goes the extra mile to tastefully incorporate special editing and colour grading effects. Their edits further enhances the photo, giving it more depth and emotion. Looking through their portfolio here is an immersive and refreshing experience, for their photos are not only beautiful, but artistic as well. Their heightened sense of creativity creates extraordinary shots amidst simple backdrops. This combination of a photojournalism approach and artistic wedding photography gifts you magical shots that will look beautifully framed up on your walls, like a piece of art.

3. Well-crafted packages subject to customisation

After shooting countless weddings, Farhan and Faez understands what couples need. Their packages for wedding day, pre-wedding and portraiture covers what most couples require on their wedding day. However, as some couples may have certain preferences, they are open to customising their packages to suit your needs. You have the full freedom to add, subtract or change the components within their packages. All price modifications are discussed prior so the entire process is transparent and you will not be shocked by hidden charges later on. Check out their packages below.

Wedding Day

It is essential to have a professional photographer to capture moments of your wedding day. While you are busy soaking up the celebration, you do not have to worry about missing any of the key moments for FSQUARED Photography will be there to capture them all. For your wedding day, they will provide up to 10 hours of photoshoot, anytime, anywhere in Singapore. A soft copy of the photos, edited and enhanced, will be provided to you. Additionally, they create a web page of wedding photos for online viewing, making it easy to share with your guests after the wedding!

The package starts from S$1,888. Click here for the full inclusions.

Pre-wedding

Our pre-wedding shoot was one of the most memorable experiences prior to our wedding day. I would suggest for all couples to have one before the big day! Not only do you get to spend time with each other before the big day, it is also a great way to warm you up and get rid of any nerves you may have. FSQUARED Photography will spend up to 5 hours capturing your candid moments and love story. Along with the edited soft copies, you will also get a photo slideshow which you can play as a montage during your wedding reception. That gives you one less thing to worry about!

The package starts from S$899. Click here for the full inclusions.

Portraiture

FSQUARED Photography also specialises in taking portraitures, but with a modern spin to it. They aim to bring out your personality through each shot. Check out their works here.

4. Beautiful high quality canvas prints for keepsake

“Wedding photographs should transport you back to that place, that moment in time, not just moments but perfect memories. It is the job of the wedding photographer to ensure that those memories never escape.” – FSQUARED Photography

Now that we are in the digital age, most of us store our photos in online albums or thumb drives. But if you are sentimental like me, nothing beats seeing the physical copy itself. On top of the digital copies, FSQUARED Photography includes a solid memento of your wedding day. In their package, you can choose either a 30” by 20” canvas print or a custom album for your keepsake. Made by ZNO USA, their prints and albums are of the highest quality and showcase vivid colours. They are water and stain-proof, sturdy enough to last a lifetime.

5. Experience with multiracial weddings

Though Singapore is a multiracial and multicultural society, not many wedding photographers have an experience as diverse as the FSQUARED brothers. Farhan and Faez have captured many Chinese, Malay and Indian weddings, and are familiar with the flow and style of the different ceremonies. It is key for your photographer to understand and be familiar with the flow of events of your wedding day, so that they can capture the essential highlights and tell a coherent story with their photos. On top of their diverse experience, FSQUARED Photography also strives to be responsive and open to input from couples. You can rest assured that their friendliness and authenticity will give rise to a great experience.

If you are searching for artistic captures and a great experience, be sure to get in touch with FSQUARED Photography.
