A Mother Nature Inspired Wedding In Kuching

Photo by Yong Hao Visual Moments. www.theweddingnotebook.com

You can never go wrong with a nature themed wedding, simply because it is always classy and timeless. Also, couples tend to forget that they don’t have to spend extravagant amounts to get their dream wedding. Yan and Hua’s wedding was understated yet so beautiful, and having the perfect venue certainly helped. Because they enjoy nature so much, they decided to have lots of greenery incorporated into their theme, as well as personal touches in the form of DIY elements. A big thank you to Yong Hao Visual Moments for these stunning photos of the lovebirds!

Geometric Shapes Met Vintage Glam For This Wedding At Glasshouse At Seputeh

Photo by Anna Rina. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This wedding was the perfect mix of simple and grand, old and new, vintage and glamour. The couple even had the cutest hashtag to go with it – #soyawedscincau! From the bride’s wedding dress, which looked simple from the front but was dramatic and breathtaking from the back, to the reception, just about everything was truly a sight to behold.

The colour theme of maroon certainly set the tone, making the celebration romantic, mysterious and dreamy all at the same time, and we love that ingenious table arrangement idea! Many thanks to Anna-Rina Photography for capturing (and sharing) such a lovely set of photos.

A Union Of Two Cultures At Le Meridian Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

For Matthew and Yasuho, tying the knot after being together for almost a decade was a momentous and meaningful celebration indeed. The solemnisation ceremony was a classic affair, held in Le Meridian’s rooftop glasshouse. The abundance of natural light made the colour palette of navy and white really stand out in the photos and video.

To highlight the union of their different cultures, Yasuho wore a ‘furisode’, a type of kimono only single women are allowed to wear, complete with a stunning floral headpiece of white hydrangeas and baby’s breath. We absolutely love the whole look! For her walk in, she chose to wear a ‘cheongsam’ to represent her husband’s culture and heritage, as well as to symbolise her merging into his family. She also hand-folded hundreds of ‘orizuru’ (paper cranes) for each guest as part of the wedding favours!

An Intimate Wedding at The Orchid Conservatory, The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Andrew Yep Photographie. www.theweddingnotebook.com

As we’ve said before, picking a venue with the right setting and ambience can make the whole wedding planning experience so much simpler, not to mention save you lots of time and money! If you’re the type that doesn’t like to stress out over a million little decisions, this is a good strategy to consider. Here’s a wedding that, thanks to its stunning venue, needed hardly any additions to make it picture perfect.

Held in the beautiful, sun-drenched Orchid Conservatory in The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, this small, intimate celebration was absolutely beautiful to behold. With hundreds of lush orchids providing the perfect backdrop, the couple went with a peachy-pink and white colour theme for their wedding invites, wedding cake and floral arrangements.

With their tea ceremony and reception all being held at the same place, we imagine that this also meant everyone could relax and really enjoy meaningful moments together as they celebrated the happy couple’s union. Thanks to Andrew Yep Photographie for giving us this special peek!

A Cool Geometric Silver Wedding At Metal Bees

Photo by Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s not often that you’ll find a bride opting to wear an unconventional wedding gown, but this bride did, and she looked stunning in her sparkly silver wedding gown and chic hairdo. Save for the bridesmaids, who were in flowing silver dresses, guests were asked to come dressed in black.

The cool starry backdrop, geometric decorative elements, sparkly disco lights and cool blue lighting all made for a very cool, very fun party to celebrate the union of two people. Many thanks to Peter Herman Photography for capturing the decorative aesthetics and creative styling by The Next Best Thing so well!

Do check out also their fun filled bridal portraits; we can’t get enough of these two.

Natalie: “It felt more like a party with close friends instead of a traditional wedding party. All our guests showed up in the requested dress code, which really let the shades of silver and glitter pop.

“I loved the edgy geometrical décor of the dessert bar and table settings, as well as the retro disco ball for the dance floor. Everything was done by Shyyi of The Next Big Thing who knew exactly what I wanted for my dream wedding: something cool and unconventional with a touch of glam.

“As for the geometry concept, my husband and I have entirely different personalities but we’re still better together. The geometry shapes represent the two of us coming together as one despite our different edges.”

Tips from the bride: “Planning a wedding takes a lot of time, energy and focus, so whether you know what you want or have no idea at all, a wedding planner can help you to define your theme, concept, mood, and the emotions you want to set. Getting a professional wedding planner will help you save a lot of time and all you have to do is take care of yourself and enjoy every moment of your special day with your dream man.”

A Timeless Burgundy Wedding At St Andrew’s Church, KL

Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Keeping things classic with a beautifully modern colour palette of deep burgundy, red and blue, this bride and groom made every part of the flowers, décor and bridal party a reflection of who they were. The dark shades of burgundy in the bridal bouquet perfectly contrasted with the light pops of pink in the décor, and the bride looked absolutely resplendent in her bridal gown, especially with the decadent lace sleeves. It was clear there was so much love and joy on this special day – between the newlyweds and from their guests as well. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing this gorgeous set of photos.

Jo Ni and Tsen: “The most memorable moment of our big day was when we exchanged vows before God, family members and friends during the morning solemisation in church. That was the most intimate and sacred part of the whole wedding.”

Tsen: “Of course, seeing Jo Ni, who looked as stunning as ever, walking down the aisle towards me was a moment I’ll never forget. I was overwhelmed with emotion as I understood I was about to marry the woman I love and spend the rest of my life with her.”

Jo Ni: “For me, it was when I was walking down the aisle toward Tsen while reminiscing the years I’ve spent with my father, who was walking next to me. I felt assured knowing that I was walking towards my future husband who will love me as much as my father does.”

A Stylish Yet Simple Poolside Wedding Done Right

Photo by Fabulous Moments. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We love the minimalist yet stylish approach this couple took for their wedding. They chose to have an outdoor poolside ceremony, with sweeping views of the city. Very minimal décor was needed for the ceremony space, and only some artificial flowers were incorporated for the dinner reception. Have a look at the photos and see if you can tell the difference! Thanks to Fabulous Moments for sending this to us.

A Nature-Inspired Intimate Garden Wedding At Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa

Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Every so often, there will come a bride and groom who were able to infuse unconventional elements into their wedding – sneakers for the bride and a geometric print shirt for the groom, anyone?

As it was a celebration of their two lives coming together, their theme was forest (林) and water (汪) – the meaning of their Chinese surnames. From the wildflowers and the bride’s beautiful blue floral bouquet to the wood and twine decorative elements, their décor was perfect against the venue’s expansive windows and ghost chairs for the solemnisation ceremony.

Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for capturing this lovely and intimate set of wedding photographs.

A Breathtaking Intimate Wedding in the Alps

Photo by Andrew Leiner. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Everything about this wedding was picture perfect: from the breathtaking backdrop of the Austrian Alps to the spontaneous fun this couple had with their close friends and family. Love was clearly in the air – between the bride and groom and the outpouring emotions from their friends and family. Keeping their wedding intimate and close to their heart, the bride had two wedding dresses – one of which was made by her best friend, and choosing to pair it with a leather jacket made it even more glamourous. It was truly a celebration of love, beautifully captured by Everly Pictures.

A Gold And Tiffany Blue DIY Wedding At Suffolk House, Penang

Anna Rina Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Choosing to DIY your own wedding can be overwhelming, but this bride and groom each picked out a colour and ran with their ideas. She chose gold while he chose Tiffany blue – two colours that look amazing together, much like the couple themselves. With joyful yellow balloons decorating the wedding aisle, the bridesmaids (each in mismatched bridesmaid outfits) walked down the aisle with parasols in lieu of floral bouquets. For the reception, the vintage decorative elements, such as the gold painted wine bottles, perfectly contrasted against the modern chandeliers of the venue. Thanks to Anna-Rina Photography for this beautiful set of photos that capture the unbridled joy and happy smiles of the couple and their friends and family.

A Sweet And Simple Wedding In Yarra Valley, Melbourne

Nature is an undeniably beautiful backdrop, and Stones of the Yarra Valley is a slice of Tuscany in the land down under. With exposed brick walls, rolling hills and (at the right time) a romantic sunset, it’s the perfect space for a rustic yet glamorous wedding. The abundance of gorgeous flowers and seasonal blooms also definitely added to the romantic feel. Many thanks to Warren Photography for capturing these breathtaking shots.

A Classic All-White Roses Wedding in Perth

Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A white rose is the perfect symbol of marriage and new beginnings. This wedding was a refreshing mix of old and new, with traditional elements like an all-white colour palette, but also resplendent extravagance in the form of chandeliers and clear crystal glasses.

What really stole the show though was the abundance of white roses that adorned every single part of the wedding décor, and how this couple infused their story so completely into their wedding. Thanks to Munkeat Photography for capturing this stunning set of photos!

Kim: “The most memorable moment was seeing each other for the first time at the altar, and having my husband’s two brothers as his groomsmen and my two sisters as my bridesmaids by our sides. Another moment was when my husband sang John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ while playing the piano.

“Our theme was classic elegance as we’re both quite traditional. We chose white, gold and touches of black, as they’re our favourite colours. We only had white roses – we had over 10,000 fresh white roses flown in, and a rose flower wall with 6,000 silk flowers. I’ve dreamt of getting married at St. Mary’s Cathedral ever since I was a little girl, and the cathedral is a mix of old and new with glass panels letting in all the beautiful natural light.

“As for our reception, we have sweet memories of our chosen venue, the Crown ballroom. It was on the dance floor in this exact ballroom that my husband asked me to be his girlfriend five years earlier.

“We had KoKo Black chocolates as our favours – we both love chocolates and the boxes matched our theme perfectly. Our biggest and only DIY project was our flower wall covered in roses that was our backdrop behind the bridal table.
