Samantha and Vincent first met in school and he actually turned her down at first but fate wasn’t to be defeated that easily and Samantha’s patience was rewarded a few years later when he came to his senses and she got her man! This brilliant couple are originally from Malaysia and after studying in Belfast Vincent crossed the Glenshane to settle down here and as soon as Samantha finished her studies in Canada she made an even longer crossing to join her husband-to-be.
The two of them were great fun to chat to, very easy to photograph and I was fascinated (and probably asked too many questions!) about the differences between Irish and Malay weddings. Samantha will actually be wearing two dresses on their big day, the traditional-as-we-know-it white dress and a brightly coloured traditional Malay dress, and they both have to pass a variety of tests laid out by their other half’s side of the bridal party before the day can begin!
