A former national swimmer and an up-and-coming trainer and fitness personality, this couple has done well to document their chemistry and stunning good looks on film – as they prepare for life together as man and wife.

The album was shot at the popular Punggol Beach, with its crashing waves, and Lorong Halus Park in Singapore. Victoria and Bryan looked radiant, and the natural setting only enhanced the shots and brought out their affection for each other. What a splendid reel that will serve as a beautiful reminder of their journey! Many thanks for these wonderful shots, Jonlin Photography.

Winter Photoshoot in Kanazawa and Shirakawa-go

Photo by Iluminen Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The howling winds had come and gone, leaving behind a picturesque landscape of white hills and snow-capped houses in Shirakawa-go, Japan. Reflecting their love for the outdoors, this adventurous couple took their pre-wedding shoot to the Miyagama River and the Higashi Chaya-gai, with breathtaking views of the old Japanese cityscape.

“I’d describe it as majestic,” said the photographer, Iluminen, who enjoyed this trip as much as the couple did. “Even though this was our second trip to Japan, it was special because it was our first time visiting the artsy city of Kanazawa together, as well as the snow-capped village of Shirakawa-go. We decided to end that first night in the beautiful city with a tasty bowl of squid ink ramen, great company and plenty of laughter.”

Blush, Gold And Green Backyard Wedding

Photo by Mcs Wedding Gallery. www.theweddingnotebook.com

When the father of the groom said he didn’t want a “typical Chinese wedding”, this couple jumped at the opportunity to do something different – a backyard wedding for loved ones and close friends that was swanky yet cosy.

The first thing they did was to hire a reliable wedding planner and discuss their plans with a decorator. They decided on blush, gold and green – colours that they loved and that would bring out the natural beauty of the family home. Bouquets of roses and hydrangeas adorned the lovely garden where they would wed, and every other detail, too, was planned and carried out to perfection. Many thanks to MCS Wedding Gallery for this fantastic album!

Reenacting Memories For Meaningful Engagement Portraits

Photo by MOCO Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

When it comes to engagement portraits, keeping things simple and clean helps couples to focus on what’s important – their most treasured memories captured in stills that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

“We made it a point to agree on the bigger goal(s) beyond typical and superfluous wants and needs. In hindsight, what has always gotten us back on track in times of conflict or doubt is our desire to honour God and our parents,” said this couple. “We’ve always asked ourselves: does this glorify God and honour our parents? The answer to that question always helps us to decide on the next best step to take.”

To receate the memories that matter to them, the couple planned a day of photoshoots in Jason’s Food Hall, a Starbucks and a local park. The first venue was where Dansen first held Evelyn’s hand as they shopped for risotto ingredients – never mind that his plan to cook for her never materialised!

Starbucks was where they had deep conversations about their relationship, values and spiritual faith, and finally, as their relationship came to a crossroads, he proposed to her at a park – and she said yes! Many thanks to Cheryl Wong of MOCO: Capturing Life Moments for these meaningful shots.

More often than not, what matters to a couple will naturally be reflected in their wedding. For Kee Hong and Louis, who met in England and celebrated their engagement in romantic Paris, honouring family traditions and their heritage was at the heart of their wedding, which was held at the Blue Mansion in Penang.

Fusing auspicious red with blue, beige and cream, the couple created a wedding palette that was loud in its declaration of prosperity and tradition, yet modern and easy on the eyes. Many thanks to Andrew Yep Photographie for this smashing album!

Classic Oriental Wedding At Glasshouse At Seputeh

Photo by Funkydali. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is amazing how themes can totally transform a wedding venue. Glasshouse@Seputeh Kuala Lumpur has scored major points with event hosts, and it’s easy to see why. When it comes to weddings, this is a great space, especially for couples who have a very clear idea of their theme.

We were mesmerised by the Shanghai-esque flavour of this wedding. The classy deep red of the handsome couple’s ‘qipao’ and shirt, drapes, lanterns and oriental wares all made for a stunning traditional Chinese setting. As the bride shared, “The most memorable moments were spending time with our guests and seeing all our plans come to fruition.” Good job, Spring Cottage, and fantastic shots, Funkydali!

Tips from the bride: “Detailed planning beforehand will allow you to relax and enjoy yourself on the big day!”

“Au Naturel” Bridal Portraits In Bali

Photo by Fire, Wood and Earth. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It has been said that a successful marriage is about falling in love many times, always with the same person. Shot on a quiet and secluded beach in Bali, the indie-vintage tone of these photos made for a dreamy throwback to the times when this couple were young, carefree and newly in love.

Keeping things as natural as possible to preserve its essence, they themed their engagement shoot ‘Reminiscence of Love’, and as Andre of Fire, Wood & Earth shared: “Laughter and happy memories filled the air as they casually recollected portions of their love story in between camera clicks.” Well done, Andre, on producing this brilliant and memorable album!

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!
