Hi, Noel here! :D So obviously, if you’ve been following wedding industry news and stuff, you already know who the Weddings at Work supplier of the year was for 2012. :) But if you’re curious with what exactly happened behind the scenes during the shooting of the, shall we say, very different concept by Mayad Studios of the awards for the Top 10 nominees, well, you’re going to want to go through the pics right here. :D I was just accompanying Rae to the shooting at the Imagine Nation studio, and Ninang Benz told me to go shoot some behind the scenes. So I did. XD Enjoy the photos with my commentary. XD
Fiel of Mayad Studios poses for the camera while Rogue Photographer Shayla of Imagine Nation is unsuspecting of the picture, thus making this face. Sorry Shy. XD
Make-up artist extraordinaire gets her first taste of the shooting. XD
Jed “helps out” with the reflector. Sure, sure. XD
Rogue Photographer in action.
Ms. Benz of W@W checks the list of things to be done, as Sheena of Mayad, and Monique and Jamie of Imagine Nation appear in the mirror. Hahaha. XD
Masterlist. Yes, a lot of things go on just for the W@Wie award. :)
Ms. Benz directing traffic.
Sheena looking on. Wonder what’s amusing? XD
Imagine Nation’s Jamie, Sir Jong, and Jed. Test shot. XD
Kaye of k by Cunanan catering, who admitted that she has trouble posing in front of cameras, receives direction. XD
Paparazzi style shoot. XD
Alex of Imagine Nation. No, he doesn’t normally look like this. XD
Jed, Kim and Shayla looking on at Shy’s pics of Rae. Notice the bunny ears. XD
Betty of Imagine Nation “assisting” Alex shoot. Right. XD
Kaye gamely posing. :)
Please do not try this pose at home. XD
Back inside the studio, Fiel shows to Kaye what her fashion accessory is going to be. XD
Doesn’t it make her so assassin like? XD
Rae’s turn. XD
Maja of Passion Cooks arrives. :)
Kaye and Ms. Benz talk during downtime. :)
Fiel directs Rae what to do for the video.
More direction from Fiel. Hehe! :D
John and Anna of Aisle 1401 while waiting for their turn. Sweetness. XD
Eating Jed. XD
Rae during her podcast session.
Yes me? XD
Sir Jong’s turn at being the assassin.
My favorite part of the shoot: the death scenes!
Miko of Aisle 1401 “dies”. XD
Oh look, he’s alive again. XD
This is probably one of the most surreal things I have ever seen, even knowing this is fake: someone threatened by a knife, and everyone just looking on. XD I mean, there’s even a camera!
Fiel tells Kaye to smell the knife. This is the result. XD
Another surreal moment: Kaye bids Sir Jong good-bye as he is “tied” to the chair and the assassin looks on. XD
For some reason, when it was Sir Jong’s turn to “die”, all the cameras from the Imagine Nation people came out. Hmmm… XD
Death by tripod!
Breaking a mirror. For what? XD
Fiel enjoying every moment of the shoot. Yes, he’s the guy “killing” everybody. XD
Broken mirror. And I just brought that out of storage. XD
It’s supposed to be used to “kill” Rae. Rae finds the whole thing amusing. XD
She looks very scared. Really. XD
Maja distributes her goodies. They’re yummy. :D
Chocolate… which will be stuffed in her mouth and cause her “death”. XD
Back at command, Ms. Benz makes sure to collect all photos from all photographers.

Great job and congrats to everyone involved in the shooting! :D
