a kayan pre-wedding — tusan beach

hello :) here are some photos from our pre-wedding album. it was year-end of 2017, we wore Kayan traditional wedding attires. i wore a few special pieces from my family’s heirloom - borneo beads, velvet beaded dress, headpiece,  and K also accessorized with all things Kayan-native (he even tried some warrior dance moves! :) it will be a long post to explain what each item we wore means but this is us, a year-ish before our wedding.

it was also our first time together at the stunning tusan beach, about an hour drive on the coast from my family home. my sister helped out in this shoot and we spent all morning on the beach before the tide rises. i’m so glad we decided to work on our own pre-wedding album, because it meant we could do it whenever, wherever we thought was perfect, and have lots of fun. i’ll share more from our other shoots soon ;)

 venue : tusan beach, subis, sarawak

** p.s yes we just got married ! if you’re on Instagram you might’ve seen the good news — more on that soon while we wait for photos from our wedding day photographer :) **
