Angie's client, Cathy described her work as simply delicate. She tried 8 hair-do's and 2 make-ups on her in 4 hours.

makeup trial run make-up trial. Nice make-up color contour with no piled up effect. Laid back yet pretty updo.
I reckon Angie's work is clean yet Label:modern and unique. I am intrigued by the aesthetic fresh faces she created. For the hair, I like some of the sophisticated up dos with a simple hairpiece or just some camouflaged bobby pins. If you are searching hard for a solid Label:makeup artist, try her. She gets booked fast. I inquired a quotation but she is not available on my wedding day. She has quite a impressive portfolio appearing on bridal magazines, collaborating with renown photographers and having a well-rounded experience.

- Price: Slightly above average

- Service: Excellent
- Punctuality: Good
- End result: Amazing
Angie really made me feel my best on my big day! I have a lot of acne scars and she managed to cover them up quite well without making me look cakey (most likely because she uses water-based foundation with the airbrush!). She doesn't really do much "correction make up" like creating illusions to downplay my big nose or wide face, but instead emphasized on bringing out my best feature - my eyes. Wow, I really loved how she put so much time and effort to make them stand out! She cut short the fake lashes so they didn't look fake on me at all. She added many coats of mascara and eye liner to perfect my eye make up but I didn't end up looking like I had a lot of eye make up on, which was amazing. My husband, like most men, always insist that I look better without make up. But he really loved her natural-looking make up on me!". More at the link above.

"I just had my wedding in Dec09 and i've nothing but praises for my MUA. She did a fantastic job - i received countless compliments from my guest all nite! What set her apart from other MUA is her versatility in changing my style for the whole day while maintaing a very natural look (i had three session in a day - morning, ROM, dinner registration). Most importantly, it was her dedication and professionalism that made the difference. She accompanied me all day and nite (till almost 10pm) to ensure i look the best and did the same during my pre-wedding photoshoot without me requesting for it/extra charge. So, for you gals who are still looking for give her a try. Her portfolio is also available in FB, just search for Michelle Touche."

"Michelle Touche (She is quite good but SUPER EXPENSIVE)"
dlviera in Oct 2011:
I had Michelle Tan (Michelle Touche) as my MUA and totally loved her! Her makeup is really natural and the best part is i loved how she accentuated my lil tiny eyes. Trust me this is a dificult feat as i had previously hired two MUA for my pre-wed shots and it turned out disastrous! I was very relieved to find Michelle, good really good compliments on my makeup during my AD*beaming*
But i heard her charges are now quite exp, but mind you she is very experienced and considered as a Senior MUA in the industry but oh well its your wedding, i wouldnt mind splurging a lil to look good! 

dlviera in Nov 2011:
"my vote goes to Michelle Tan! Her makeup is very natural and she did a fabulous job in making my teeny weeny eyes HUGE during AD and PS. *thumbsup"

PG | Jon Low

When I sighted his admirably elegant J'adore Paris photograph on the cover of "The Hip List Wedding Photographers", I started going on a quest to trace him. Jon Low has turned his casual hobby into a career when he began shooting wedding professionally in 2007 and started Ideal Wedding Studios which is now re-branded as Jon Low Studios.

MUA | Grace Wang

I love the balanced effect of her make-over. The comments I collected so far seem positive. She has been doing an impressive job and the brides who received her service recommended her. Grace Wang is one of the more reputable MUAs (Wedding Acronym) with good rates. She gives you her full concentration on your wedding day as she only takes one customer per day.

If Grace Wang catches your attention, kindly drop a note in the comment. Share your experience with other researching bride-to-be's as to what are her strengths, weaknesses, and aspects you are most satisfied with or you wished could have been better.

"You may search for Grace Wang.. I engaged her for my big day few weeks ago and pretty happy for the result. :)"
summerlove on Oct 2011:
"I personally prefer natural makeup and I had chosen Grace Wang as my wedding day mua. And she did a good job on me. All my friends and family gave good comment on the makeup and hairdo. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. Another reason I chosen her because she only took 1 bride for a day, I don't want to take the risk on the mua who accept 2 to 3 brides for a day. I'm sure they need to rush from one to another. we can't foresee any circumstances that might be happen on our big day. So, better don't risk it."
steelfish @ Dec 2011 says:
"I would suggest my MUA, Grace Wang. She did great job during my AD. I really love her make up and hair do.. You will not regret to choose her as your MUA.. even my cousin also choose her as her MUA during her AD.. :) "

PG | Derek Chai

Got a comment here that he doesn't do photography anymore.

HE started picking up photography by capturing warm moments of family members in pictures. Derek Chai has covered more than 140 wedding cases over the past 3 years. After bagging multiple international wedding photography awards, he continued to collect the contest points that placed him at the 10th position of the AG|WPJA (Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association) top photographers 2010.

I now present to you some of his award winning photos (

I began tracking him down after reading his clients' endless compliments. By the time I finished reading the comments, I was already sure that this photography maestro has what it takes. Comments from a malaysiabrides forum thread: below.

kiwi@gal on Apr 2010:

PG | Dennis Yap (Tsong Hsih)

Dennis ended his career in the Engineering Department of AirAsia Berhad after 7 years to pursue something he is passionate about called ART. He is now a full time photographer and inspiration to the young. Dennis Yap Photography has been established in 1995, he has a long history and experience in photography (17 years). I must confess I went through the same predicament as Dennis growing up. Only a few choose the unconventional route in defining your own dreams and not just go along with a career which is deemed to provide steady income. So, go where your heart is, work hard, only the sky is the limit.

A member of WPPI, he continues to improve his craft through keeping up with the current trend and technology. Wedding photos in the older days were more often than not portraits that show the couple's face clearly. Dennis is open to unconventional techniques which our parents or grandparents may not fancy. Image of a pair of feet may seem pointless but to the lovers, there may be a tale which brought them together.

He was assigned to be the official wedding photographer who captured Ishwara and Thanusyia's wedding reception in the aircraft 30,000ft above sea level, who set a record in the Malaysia Book of Records.
