This is how you know a groom is truly the apple of his bride’s eye.

She chose to have their wedding pictures taken in a shiny new Apple store in Singapore because her husband is an even bigger fan than she is of the company’s products.

Dressed in their wedding finery, Jermyn Wee, 34, and Chia Suat Huang, 31, had photos taken at Singapore’s only Apple store on June 3, according to Mashable.

“The photo shoot was really just a spur of the moment thing,” Chia, a schoolteacher, told The Straits Times in Singapore.

The manager said yes to the unorthodox request when the bridal party arrived a half hour before the store opened that day, and the manager let them in 10 minutes before opening time, Mashable reports.

The store had just opened the weekend before, on May 27, when thousands of people waited hours in “equatorial heat” to get into Apple’s first store in Southeast Asia, according to Apple’s website.

Staff members were “perfectly fine” with the shoot, said Weili Yip, the couple’s wedding photographer, who posted some of the images on his Facebook page and website, yipcreations.com.

“They (were) very welcoming and encouraging,” he told Mashable.

The bride and groom posed among the iPhones, MacBooks and iPads. Customers clapped for them when they walked down the “aisle” in the middle of the store. A few offered congratulations.

“We were just laughing at how silly the whole thing was, but at the same time it was also very cool,” the bride told the Straits Times.

She said her camera-shy husband was actually reluctant to pose for any wedding pictures, but this setting – as is obvious from the photos – put a big smile on his face.

“Jermyn was so gleeful to actually take pictures in the store,” she told the Straits Times. “I was just glad it was air-conditioned.”
