Surprise... We Got Married! Part III: The Newlyweds | April 19, 2010

On March 28, 2010 I married my best friend and the love of my life in my mother's vintage floral wedding dress in a small and casual backyard wedding.

Mark and I met in uni and soon became good friends. A shared naiveté and perpetual case of bad timing held us back from progressing into "couplehood" until 6 years into our friendship (despite the exasperated proddings of mutual friends!)

Now we are inseparable having built a cosy home together where we both live and work.

He takes care of me, even spoils me rotten. In return, I let him steal the crunchy fries off my plate.

These images are of Mark and I as blissful newlyweds. Photography by Jonathan Ong.
