An Eccentric Rehash Of ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ In Batam, Indonesia

Photo by Depth of Tales. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This pair of movie lovers certainly took their penchant for movies – or rather, for Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ – up a notch for their pre-wedding shoot. Described as an “eccentric, pubescent love story”, ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ inspired such props as vintage briefcases, lamps, books and a small tepee. With a boy scout uniform and a raccoon hat for him, and a vintage dress for her, the results are a timeless and unique album that is guaranteed to delight family and friends for generations to come. Many thanks to Depth of Tales for this truly brilliant work!

Making A Splash With Underwater Bridal Portraits

Photo by Chester Kher Creations. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There are many ways for a couple to make a splash — this couple did it gorgeously, and literally, with an underwater shoot. We love the pops of colour, and especially how the bride’s red gown swirled like a mermaid’s tail in the water. We hope everything goes swimmingly well for this lovely couple! Many thanks to Chester Kher Creations for this.

Charley: “We just wanted to try something fresh, that was not too clichéd, and that did not require too much posing. We went ahead with this underwater idea without knowing what to expect. It was a challenging yet fulfilling experience!”

Glam Meets Grunge In This Gritty, Steamy Bridal Photoshoot

Photo by 50nfifty. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Gold sequins and black leather dance in a dingy corridor lit by green tinged fluorescent tubes. She is a gilded diva, he is a bad boy and rocker, and right here, in the grittiness of it all, they have eyes only for each other. Stylistically unconventional, this is a couple who is not afraid to live life with passion and verve. A huge shout out to 50nfifty Productions for sending along such a unique set of photos!

A Classic Hollywood Romance

Photo by Euhau Leong/LOORK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Much like the happily-ever-afters of Hollywood films, this set of bridal portraits perfectly encapsulates the newlyweds’ mutual love for films and all things timeless. After all, a classic is a beauty that withstands the weather of time. With a dramatic red lip for the bride and dapper tailored suits for the groom, they were indeed a sight to behold, with no detail spared in their perfect homage to the golden age of Hollywood. Set in New Zealand with all its untouched beauty, we love the fashion choices (pearls and lace), floral prints and headgear. Many thanks to Euhau Leong of LOORK for capturing these amazing bridal portraits, and to Rong and Sky of TwoPeople Studio for such an inspiring concept.

A Lover, Not a Fighter

Sanit Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Fans of the Ip Man movie series, which tells the story of the legendary Wing Chun martial arts master, would be able to recognise this groom’s billowing robes. While in the movies Ip Man’s story focussed more on his martial arts and less on his relationship with his wife, it was still deeply romantic, albeit subtly.

In these bridal portraits, Sanit Portfolio has captured the love and romance between the groom and his bride, dressed in a beautiful cheongsam, in the style of the Ip Man movies. Set against the backdrop of vintage shophouses, neon lights and understated glamour, the photos are dramatic and classically beautiful.

Two Parts Of A Whole

Two people who come together in a marital union often bring their own stories to the relationship, as they balance each other out in personality, interests and choices. Together, they’re a force to be reckoned with!

We love this truly creative stop motion video that Funkydali has put together for Halina and Amir, which showcases their personalities against the gorgeous colonial backdrop of Kuala Lumpur and the dreamy landscape off the coast. Complemented by the bride’s impeccable taste, these bridal portraits and engagement video perfectly tell their love story.

Whimsical Love, Quirky Romance

The Peeping Thom Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Partners in life and work, this bride and groom infuse their own whimsical brand of creativity into every aspect of their lives. As co-founders of a creative agency, they are perfectly compatible in their strengths and personalities, and are truly two halves of a perfect whole.

As animal lovers with two dogs and two cats, even their bridal portraits had animal elements in it, from their geometric animal masks to their three-year-old Dachshund, Duncan, who made a cameo appearance!

Many thanks to Thomas Ang of The Peeping Thom for capturing this quirky, Wes Anderson-inspired set of bridal portraits.

Following an elaborate planned proposal and the epic lengths the groom had to go through to design the ring, it was only normal that this beautiful couple would inject their own personality (and their beloved pets!) into their story. And what better way to tell their story than with their bridal portraits?

For their low-key and relaxed shoot, Sarah and Alwin had their pet snake (Basil), rats (Cinnamon and Latte) and miniature schnauzer (Sitas) with them. We love how the bride’s hair glowed red in these photos, and the use of black balloons against the backdrop of a wide blue sky. Many thanks to One Way Ticket for the amazing creative direction in capturing the love between these two, along with their adorable pets.

Nostalgic Old Shanghai Inspired Bridal Portraits at PS150

Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes an idea is sparked from just one detail of the wedding, and for this bride, it was her emerald green cheongsam. From there, she decided on Oriental-themed bridal portraits and a throwback to Old Shanghai.

The décor of PS150 perfectly fit the theme, with its exposed walls, romantic lights and nostalgic little vintage details. Thanks to Peter Herman Photography for this perfectly lovely set of photos.

Timeless 1960s Oriental Bridal Portraits

In The Mood Of Love Concept Shoot. Photo by Daren Chong Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There’s something unspeakably timeless about a vintage Oriental mood shoot, complete with elements of nostalgia and melodrama. Think Wong Kar Wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love’.

From the soft mood lighting to the hair, makeup and wardrobe choices, this style is subtly romantic yet heavily dramatic. We love the hidden angles and muted tones; many thanks to Daren Chong Photography for this artistic set of bridal photographs!

Artistic Illusions

If conventional is not your thing, then MangoRed is the one to see because we’ve been blown away time and again by their work. This might just be a simple photoshoot at a restaurant and some great hangout spots but the final results are amazing. The effects and illusions combine to create truly wonderful pieces of art.

Zombie Apocalypse Bridal Portraits

Jon Ng Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This is not our first time seeing a zombie inspired photoshoot but it’s quite something to see it in our own backyard. This couple, who are both TV addicts, decided that they were game enough to try something different for their bridal portraits – and they nailed it! The set was perfect and the makeup was horrifying (in a good way). Thanks, Jon Ng, for taking up this crazy challenge of shooting them. It looks great!
