A Quiet Affair At Four Seasons Resort Langkawi

WeFreeze Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We thought we’d seen small weddings, but this takes the cake. WeFreeze Photography was introduced to this couple by a friend. We love the casual shoot and how the couple just lazed on the hammock.

Teresa: “It was a small, intimate wedding, just the two of us and my parents, who were also our official witnesses. We’re Portuguese; it was our first time in Malaysia. We have a Malay friend who says wonderful things about Malaysia, so we knew it was worth the visit.

“At the same time, we were looking for a venue and a country where we could be married legally instead of just having a symbolic ceremony. We fell in love with the Four Seasons Resort Langkawi when we visited their website, and we couldn’t have found a more beautiful and idyllic place to celebrate our wedding!”

A Decade Of Love

Maybe you are married and wondering why you are still checking out wedding websites every other day. Perhaps you have a lot of things you wish you had done. No worries, your 10-year anniversary can be your next excuse to put on a huge celebration, or make it five years. We love the sand art here, it’s inspired us to create something the next time we’re on a beach.

Norris: “All we wanted was to have a small, romantic and intimate ceremony, and bring our friends to the shores of Boracay. This was supposed to be our 10th year celebration. No frills. No fireworks. We did not fret over little details. The amazing location took care of everything. It was relaxed and casual with lots of love. Our good friends and family were there to witness it. It was perfect.”

Tips from the bride: “Have a budget and stick to it. If you are having a destination wedding, hire a local wedding planner!”

Destination wedding, check. Garden wedding, check. Beach wedding, check. Now is that a good start or what? Look at the bridesmaids in hot pink and flowergirls in bright colours with bindis on their foreheads. To top it all off, the venue was filled with orchids.

As the photographer told us, if you want to get married in Phuket and have a beautiful beach wedding, then Katathani it is. Boasting 850 metres of unspoilt paradise, embraced by lush green hills and the sparkling blue ocean, this place is a tropical dream.

Not even rain could stop this bunch from having fun. Friends and family members who were game enough to fly all the way to Koh Lipe for the wedding certainly were not going to let raindrops stop them from partying.

This wedding is testament to the fact that one’s wedding day is not about being perfect, but about celebrating the love of two special people coming together as one. Look at all the DIY details – flowers, décor, stationery, favours, etc. – they were all a labour of love by the newlyweds’ loved ones. And check out the great use of typography in all their collaterals. We are happy to see such a joyful, stress-free bride.

Geraldine: “The most meaningful part is spending good quality time with my closest friends and family. How amazing that everyone helped out during the wedding to set up the place. Don’t try to do everything on your own. Get friends and family to help out, and you’ll be amazed at how it brings people closer. Not everything will work out as planned on your wedding day. It rained on mine, but it was not the end of it. We had so much fun.”

Avillion Port Dickson wedding

A beautiful sunset beach wedding at Avillion, Port Dickson. It’s quite trendy nowadays for couples to use seashells for their beach weddings, but we love the added touch of green apples and white gerbera daisies. It made the whole set so much more interesting and lovely, and set just the right atmosphere for an intimate celebration with family and friends.

Damon: “The most beautiful moment for me was seeing my bride for the first time in her stunning white gown, walking down the aisle with her father. She simply took my breath away! It was also having our family and closest friends being such an integral part of the wedding ceremony. Having my best friend as our celebrant, and Pei Yen’s sister and brother-in-law as our emcees just topped it off. I also must say that Anna’s approach and professionalism were second to none, which made us both feel so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera on our big day.

“We wanted to have a wedding that was a little bit different from the typical big, formal, western-style wedding and reception, and since we have so many beautiful beaches here in Malaysia, it wasn’t difficult making our decision. We were a little bit wary, as some beach weddings can look tacky, so we did a lot of research on locations and colour themes that would bring life and enjoyment to the clean white sand. We felt that apple green was fresh and modern, and was a perfect match with Avillion’s set-up on Tumasek Beach.”

An Intimate Affair

Many talk about having an intimate wedding, but few get to experience a celebration like Irina and Erzhan’s. The newlyweds, who are from Kazakhstan, had only both sets of parents there to witness their special day – which, ultimately, is truly what matters.

Photographer Anna-Rina remembers the moment she first received an email from Irina. “Is this some kind of joke?” she thought. It’s not every day that a Malaysian photographer based in Kuala Lumpur gets the opportunity to photograph a wedding celebration with just four guests. “I don’t understand Kazakh,” she said. “But I could feel the romance in the air. Seriously!”

A year before their big day, Erzhan had surprised Irina with a holiday to India where he proposed in front of the Taj Mahal – the majestic monument that was built as a sign of eternal love.
