Iban costume for your pre-wedding photoshoot, why not?
We had our pre-wedding photoshoot on 4 March 2012 at the Sarawak Cultural Village, Kuching, Sarawak.(for more information on SCV click here)
Petara was so kind to us that the he gave a beautiful and not so hot weather and the SCV staff was also very kind in helping us to dress and cheap rental of costume for my fiance. Our location was mainly the Iban longhouse, the waterfall behind the Penan hut and the Orang Ulu long house.
The photoshoot was done by Andy Phe (Andy's work is here), assisted by my brother Nielsen-Nikki and Johnney's brother, Homery Pungga. None would be realised if it was not for their big help. The duration of the photoshoot was roughly about 6 hours, it took quite a while as tourists were also taking our hotos in the middle of the photoshoot (could have charged them for RM1, haha).
We wanted it to be different, more meaningful and special by having it in our Iban costume surrounded with nature and all things that relates to Iban. It was a worthwhile project for both of us and I hope our children will know how Iban costume looks like and remind them of this beautiful culture. This is also a tribute to Kumang and Keling...
So these are among my favourite shots taken by my brother, Andy's photos will only be posted after my wedding...Meanwhile, enjoy our photos:
