A Road Trip Of Beautiful Memories In New Zealand

Photo by Fixer Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

More than just beautiful photos captured amidst the majestic backdrop of mountains, rivers and heritage buildings in New Zealand, this couple’s love story is one that warms our hearts: they met as students in New Zealand, and upon graduating planned to begin their lives together, but first they wanted to honour their memories at some of their favourite places in the land where they fell in love.

Kiko and Sean look gorgeous together, and check out the bride’s blush gown photographed in the picturesque outdoors. We love the tenderness and simplicity captured in these bridal portraits – what a brilliant idea to do this on a road trip!

Shared Sam Leong of Fixer Photography: “We met many times before the shoot but we didn’t stage the shoot. We just planned the locations and things were really casual once we got there. We drove around and observed what we liked and shot when we saw something good. Most importantly, we shared a close relationship with the couple, which made the job easier and very enjoyable.” Well done, Sam!

Celebrating Love At Klebang Sand Dunes, Melaka

Photo by Bitesize Visuals. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We’re totally digging this bride-to-be’s gorgeous pre-wedding shots of her in her flight attendant uniform, which also tells of her proudest achievements as she looks forward to an exciting future with her man. Making the album extra special is the fact that the photos were taken in Malacca, where she grew up, while the tennis shoot is a nod to the couple’s shared love for the sport. Great shots, Bitesize Visuals!

Brides who relate, here’s Su Lynn’s wedding planning philosophy: “Don’t get all caught up in planning and stressing out for the big day, although it can be easier said than done.”

White On White In The Winter Wonderland Of Hallstatt Austria

Photo by Fixer Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

More memorable than the winter chill they experienced during this shoot is surely the photos that they got to take home! We love this romantic and unique set of destination bridal portraits that were shot in Hallstatt, Austria. Kudos to Sam Leong of Fixer Photography for these remarkable photos.


Says Sam: “We had many meetings and prepared Tsin Yee and Teck Keong on what to expect from their morning and evening shoot sessions in Venice. It was after that conversation that they studied their options further and decided on Hallstatt, Austria.

“We weren’t quite prepared for the snowstorm that greeted us on our arrival. A quick hunt for winter jackets, snow shoes, gloves… and a short time later, our shoot began and we all continued to brave the elements until we got everything we wanted.”

Blush And Brass Garden Wedding At Alila Villas Uluwatu Bali

Photo by Diktatphotography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It was as much a reunion as it was a wedding celebration for Ken Eun and Min Chung. We love how this South Korean couple living in New York had a most intimate garden wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. Planning a destination wedding can be a stressful affair, especially with the remote sourcing and organising, but kudos to this awesome bride for pulling it off so beautifully. Many thanks to DiktatPhotography for these mesmerising photos!

Kee Uen was browsing on Pinterest when she fell in love with the blush on green theme. Combining bronze, brass and tan with varying shades of blush, the couple’s wedding was a dignified display of the features she liked, including the monstera leaf and the king protea flower. Trees sparkled with fairy lights, casting a romantic glow over loved ones as they dined beneath a sunset sky.

Vintage Oriental Wedding Portraits In Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Onewaytix. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Wedding portraits really are a great opportunity to reacquaint yourself with the city that you live in – and have a great time while you’re at it. This bride took her love for 70s buildings and all things vintage to the streets of Kuala Lumpur, and gave her portraits an oriental theme for a classic spin. The results were fresh, quaint and personal, and the couple added some extras too – picnic-themed photos of them with a brilliant red Volkswagen, and at the beach in Port Dickson. Many thanks to Onewaytix for the lovely album!

An Eco-conscious Wedding At Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, Singapore

Photo by Samuel Goh Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Is it any surprise that this couple’s socially responsible wedding was clever, fun and well received by family and friends? Ashley and Jarrod wanted a wedding that was socially conscious and that had a low environmental impact wherever possible. Instead of using fresh flowers, their florist came up with the brilliant idea of using dried flowers and opening up a herb bar where the flowers/herbs could be wrapped in a bouquet for guests to bring home as wedding favours.

With the help of Ashley’s father, they also created a backdrop of recycled wooden pallets that was used for both the ceremony and the lunch reception in the church. Everyone was on board with the eco-conscious theme, including the vendors like Covenant Jewellery and Bettr Barista, who do good work with underprivileged and marginalised communities. Kudos to Samuel Goh Photography for these fantastic captures!

Pre-Wedding Motorhome Adventure Across New Zealand

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

New Zealand is well known for its scenic landscapes, and what a waste it would be if couples were to simply rush from one spot to another just for a few photographs. We love these photos for their sense of adventure and you can just feel the couple enjoying the experience. The idea behind your bridal portraits should be to make memories and capture your genuine love for each other, not to stage it.

Indra of Iluminen: “This wasn’t a typical pre-wedding shoot, it was more of a ‘let’s go on an adventure’. We drove for hours listening to music and stopped at places that caught our interest. We parked along wide open fields, fired up the stove, cooked our meals and enjoyed our wine.”

Frankly, we can’t think of a better way for a couple to see the world together before they put a ring on it. Kudos to Iluminen for these awesome shots!

Botanicals, Blush And Dusty Blue At Nosh, Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Guided by their vintage botanical theme of neutral hues, greenery, and a touch of dusty blue and gold, Charis and Joshua put together a DIY wedding at the church where they grew up – Church of the Good Shepherd. It was indeed a labour of love for the couple and their friends, as they created the calligraphy musical backdrop, signs and wedding invitations. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for these precious memories!

Weddings are a celebration of a couple’s union, but they are also in large part about the people who have been a part of that journey. We are always glad to see couples search for unique ways to appreciate their loved ones.

DIY Wedding Of Gold, Pink And White At Cameron Highlands

Photo by Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Fusing delicate peonies with elements of gold for their wedding, this couple went the DIY route – as much as they could. The groom, graphic designer and wedding photographer Andrew Yep, designed the invitations and stationery, and created direction boards using recycled wood and hand painted calligraphy. Meanwhile, the wedding favours were jars of locally produced strawberry jam. Thanks for these beautiful photos, Peter Herman Photography, and congratulations, Alice and Andrew! Our best wishes with you, and we’re so happy to see you both tie the knot.

It was the high point of their lives, a splendid day filled with joy and thankfulness as the couple prepared to transition from courtship to marriage. The camaraderie and laughter, the happy tears, the pride on the parents’ faces, the elation of being pronounced “man and wife” – all these and more were part of this dignified celebration at Ungasan Clifftop Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. Cheers to the beginning of a new chapter, and many thanks to Punyan Photography for these meaningful captures!

Romantic Vintage Boho Portraits In Australia

Photo by Wedding Gallery Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

As your wedding day approaches, take time off from that hectic wedding planning schedule for an album of bridal portraits that you will treasure forever. We love the intimacy in this couple’s photos, which were shot at the heritage-listed Horsley Homestead in Sydney, Australia, and perfectly coloured by the glorious rays of the setting sun. Dating back to Australia’s convict origins, Horsley Homestead, with its large hipped-roofed bungalow emulating the style of Indian colonial architecture, is infused with charm and character that will surely spark off great conversations. Many thanks to Wedding Gallery Studio for these fantastic shots!
