Khee Fatt & Choon Foong's ROM


TYING-THE-KNOT on A MASS 20092009 WEDDING
Location: Chin Woo, Ipoh

September 20th, looked like any other date on the calendar. But let's put it this way "20.09.2009" and you could see it's double 2009. It was also the 2nd day of 8th month in the Lunar Calendar. At the same time, the day also fell on the Hari Raya festival weekend. This couldn't be a more auspicious day to get married...

My long time friends, and housemates (one is permanent, the other occasional), Khee Fatt & Choon Foong chose this auspicious day to do their registration of marriage. Together with them, there were 48 other couples doing a mass wedding affair at the hall of Chin Woo, Ipoh. My first time witnessing a mass wedding and I must admit I was quite overwhelmed with the crowd and photographers and journalists from the local press covering the whole event.


Some early shots in the morning just after the make-up session. Looking good and ready to go.
Left: The bride with sister cum maid of honour; Right: The bride with William aka "the driver".



Here's the couple, before the mass registration begins.
