Neil & Isabel
When East Meets West | 中西合拼
When Mr John Teo, the father of the bride, mentioned about Isabel's "reliable, considerate and caring" nature, I could recall my first meeting with Isabel and Neil at Wisma Atria. I was late for the meeting as I had a medical appointment before the meeting and the appointment delayed at a public hospital. When I arrived at Wisma Atria, I apologised and told them about my delay at the hospital. But Isabel was very concerned and spoke about my injury. It was then, to my realisation, she was a medical surgeon and Neil was a military marine in Scotland. I was a recipient of their care, for my health and well-being, and was nodding in agreement with Mr John Teo at his speech.
It was a true eye-opener to be part of Neil's and Isabel's big day as we were able to witness a traditional Chinese customary ceremony in the morning and was part of their western wedding celebration with a Chinese table setting. The lion dance is performed during auspicious occasions, also at the launch of buildings, offices and shops, is believed to bring good fortune and wealth. Their wedding was also the first time we were able to witness the two playful lions capturing the 'cai qing' or literally 'plucking green', referring to the acrobatic act of picking up a sprig of lettuce.
Neil and Isabel were also dressed in traditional Chinese costumes for the morning ceremony, giving their foreign guests a true taste of how a customary wedding is like in the Chinese culture. Neil and Isabel were blessed by the support of their families when they embarked on the journey together as a dating couple, and now, living their married life happily in Scotland. As they embarked on their next chapter together as a married couple, I hope that they can continue to be so loving and caring towards each other, their loved ones and people around them.

My wife and I engaged Teck Kuan’s videography services because we were very impressed with his works. The meet up with Teck Kuan was casual and easy-going, with no hard selling involved. He also gave us a lot of advice (since he was well-experienced) in wedding videography. On the actual day, Teck Kuan and his assistant videographer were very professional and both arrived early to set up. In that sense, my wife and I did not have to worry about the arrangements for videographers.During the wedding ceremony, Teck Kuan and his assistant took initiative to highlight potential problems which may occur and gave reminders. After the wedding, Teck Kuan and his team were still very responsive. The finished work came in an exquisite box that's fitting as a keepsake. I would highly recommend The Next Chapter Film to anyone who wishes to have minimal worries. My wife and I are grateful to The Next Chapter Film for capturing our “once-in-a-lifetime moment”
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to The Next Chapter Film, Teck kuan and his team for their excellent service. Thank you so much for capturing the whole wedding event for us on Sat, its amazing to see the videos you took and collage all to one! You did a great job and both myself & Shawn appreciate it!
It has been a pleasant experience working with Teck Kuan and his team. They are always so polite, cheerful, and helpful before, during and after our wedding! They are very diligent and professional , they went through our wedding plan in details before our wedding, listened to our cares, provided many important and helpful advices. On the actual day, they were punctual, they took initiative in guiding us during the taking of video with patience and flexible when it comes to change of plans due to time constraints. They were also in a very jovial mood which helps us to put aside our anxiety and enjoy the moment. After the event, the team worked hard and efficiently in producing the videos and photos. Well done and thanks to The Next Chapter!!

Its definitely not an easy task selecting the best team to capture the finest moments during such an important milestone, especially since its a once in a lifetime occasion. We left our actual wedding day coverage entirely to The Next Chapter Film - from morning gatecrash, tea ceremony, outdoor group photos and night banquet. Eric, his partner and Deryck truly impressed us with their dedication and commitment. They followed us throughout the day, worked tirelessly to ensure they do not miss out on any important shots and built rapport with our 兄弟s & 姐妹s quickly. TK also arranged a few meetups with us to explain the flow of events, and together with the team, vetted through our programme flow and provided great advice with their experience. Kudos to the wonderful team at The Next Chapter Film. Please accept heartfelt thanks from both Nevin and myself. We cant wait to view our wedding film! =)

We would like to express our heart felt thanks to Tech Kwan and his team for helping us capture the essence of what bonded me and my wife together. A theme of our common faith and belief. The video you have created for us will be fondly revisited for many years to come.
Great crew who worked very hard all day, they worked around us and made it very comfortable and natural. Got our highlight reel out on the same day under very tight timings. Great tear jerker of a movie for the crowd. Recommended!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Next Chapter Film for the awesome work they created on our actual wedding day. We had Jia Lun and Deryck as our videographers and we were pleased with their dedication in their profession. Never once do we have to worry about their professionalism as they were focused in capturing all these important moments for us. We had an enjoyable time with the both of them and we would definitely recommend The Next Chapter Film to prospective wedding couples who are looking to add a sentimental touch to your wedding day video! :) Jia Hui & Jewel
It's a great pleasure working with Teck Kuan. My husband and I are very happy that he managed to combine our evening ROM and Morning highlight so perfectly within a short time. The story of the video has certainly exceeded our expectation. We will highly recommend TK! and on top of that, he is very accommodating to work within our budget! :)

When we are doing our wedding preparation, we have heard so many horror stories from our friends about their photographers and videographers; how they often leave early without informing anyone, and how they ordered expensive meals from the hotel and charged to the unknowing couple. So when we first engaged Teck Kuan and Deryck through Blackcurrant Studio, we didn't quite know what to expect. After all, this is our first time planning for a wedding and working with them! So when we saw how invested Teck Kuan and Deryck were in coming out the video highlight, we were both delighted and touched. Never in a million years would we expect such dedication from anyone in doing our video highlight. The video touches many of our guests to tears, and we felt like we had hit the jackpot in engaging Teck Kuan and his team. To all couples who are looking for professional photographer and videographers for your big day, you cannot go wrong with Kenny (Blackcurrant Studio), and Teck Kuan (The Next Chapter Film). They have captured all the wonderful memories on that day, and for that, we are eternally grateful.. :) Jowin and Sheryl
My hubby and I engaged Teck Kuan as our wedding videographer for our wedding on 17th Dec 2016. We would like to thank Teck Kuan and his team mates, Eric for being a professional, helpful and trustworthy videographer and also putting in alot of effort to make sure that our most important moments were captured. Those couples that going to get married soon, The Next Chapter Film is recommended. Can't wait to see the final work!
