Hi lovelies, kinda miss out to share my Pulau Perhentian trip post! Actually this trip is quite spontaneous and thanks to Bosch & Lombs we got the FREE 3 Days 2 Night stay at Alunan Resort with Breakfast. We didn't prepare like under water pouch to captures any baby sharks, turtle and fishes when we go for snorkeling. Kinda regret but nevertheless I still manage to enjoy throughout this trip and seeing all the creatures under sea is really memorable and exciting.
After visiting Pulau Perhentian with all the Sun, Blue Skies and the sound of Waves every morning, it actually make me quite addicting and missing every part of this moment I stay at Pulau Perhentian. You see beaches and sea has this kind of magic will make you wanted to visit more and more beach.
Beware with all the sweet and love pose in this post. Sorry for all the singles out there, if you don't feel like reading it you are welcome to not read it.
At first we actually plan to have a DIY Wedding shot by the beach since we are both a beach person. If you wanted to bring a photographer along, it will cost more as you need to pay the travel and accommodation fee so totally not in our budget. To make it more simple and easy, we decided to go for DIY Shot by using only Tripod + Camera.
As for the outfit, since it was a beach shooting I don't dare to rent a long maxi wedding gown. Instead I just pick a Tulle Skirt that I have and for the top I use quite some time to search a Swimsuit that I like lastly I saw a white swimsuit from Georgina Bikini Paradise for RM 89. For guy just a White Shirt and Denim Pants are enough. Our theme color for the beach shooting is just main White, very simple and sweet concept.
I have done some research on how to pose for Beach Wedding Shoot in Pinterest or even some Facebook Page which are quite helpful and reference for you to pose with your loves one. I am quite lucky that we made the right choice to do shooting on the next morning, with beautiful blue sky and sea after the overnight rain.
As for the Hand Flower and Flower Crown, both are from Taobao. I actually bought Wedding Veil also but I find it quite exaggerate so I just bring the Flower Crown along with me only. The color of my hand flower is more to Pink and Purple which is quite near to what I expected. Don't know if you guys saw anything suspicious from the photo above. I didn't shoot a close details of my Flower and Flower Crown.
The normal proposal pose. It took some time to actually pose it nicely without looking awkward.
The other side of the view. We actually start shooting after breakfast around 10am. The sun is quite bright and definitely not a good time to do shooting. Please make sure you have sun block ready apply all over your skin and your whole body.
The sky is really clear and blue from the another side of the view. Consider myself lucky with this kind of weather. My another props in this shooting, Love the "&" White Wooden word which we buy from Typo. We bought along J & S too represent our initial English name.
Not easy to make the "&" stand still because the sands is soft and the word is light. Camera is quite challenging too especially when you shoot from this kind of angle, we have to find stone or any wood to make the lens face up diagonally.
My favorite Solo shoot! My #sharonootd for this shoot. Too bad this has slightly back light which make my skin looks Tan and Darker. But overall the pose, the angle is Perfecto!
Found some rafting boat, add some yellow color in my photos.
At Alunan Resort, they have this pit stop for the guest to on board to their resort without getting your feet wet. I find that this is a perfect spot for photo too.
The closest details of my swimsuit, really love the crochet design of the swimsuit. This is not made of cloth which I quite amaze, I even wear this to snorkeling. My body after the snorkeling was totally hole lot of pattern from the crochet design of the swimsuit, especially my back. From the picture you can see how clear the sea from Alunan Resort, they have a small area for snorkeling too where you can see Small Sharks, Nemo fish and more pretty fishes too! We miss the chance to do so and it was FREE if you are a guest from Alunan Resort!!
End my post with Blue Sky view from Pulau Perhentian. Seriously the sky is just getting clearer and blueish when we are going to end our shooting! It was totally a fun experience to able to enjoy the DIY Pre Wedding shoot by the beach.
Although it was quite tiring, we run forth and back to check on image and pose so hard to get the right position to look nice in the photo!
Spend total 1.5-2 hours by the beach side, luckily the beach at Alunan Resort is small and private enough to have our own shooting. There was some tourist here and there, but still not feeling so awkward about it. It was totally Stress FREE. Just that we need to bear with the Weather and Wind that might need some patient to bear with it. Overall was a fun and happy experience. I feel so happy and overwhelm because I actually have a boy that willing to do this thing with me. Because we been struggling so much whether to go for this trip too. Driving for 7-8 hours is not easy and seems quite crazy and tiring too.
But in the end we still made it! No regrets and definitely a trip that worth to remember!
Posing with sea is not easy, we tried to do it in this photo by kneeling down on the sea. In the end, my skirt was wet and mix with the sands. My boy got his denim wet at the bottom and mix with sands. Totally unbearable and decide just to do it on the beach itself.
