Dear gurus!

I am photographing some friends who are getting married next weekend in Chijmes.

Just wondering if this is a private property and will I be stopped by a security guard?

The couple will be in their wedding gowns and I will be photographing from 8AM to 10AM on a Saturday.

Kindly advise :)

Two years ago my sister get married at Chijmes. After that they approached our photographer asking for my sister wedding photo for them to use in their promotion, our photographer asked for $100 usage fee and say can split $50 with us, but after that they don't reply our photographer already. Now they want to charge wedding couple $250 to take photo. Then don't hold wedding there lah so greedy!

Of course you can. In the best case you get complimented out of the door by onsite security staff.
Worst case is a police report and some inconvenient questions, followed by a claim from the management. If they link you with this posting here (which is not really difficult) it becomes a deliberate act. Good luck,
