A Romantic Pink Wedding at Ferguson Valley, WA

Traditionally, the groom would have his brothers and/or best guy friends and the bride would have her sisters and/or best girlfriends for their respective wedding parties. But whoever said that the bride’s best friend couldn’t be a guy and vice versa?

Bridesman, man of honour, groomsmaid or best lady – call them what you will, the bottom line is that on one of the most significant days of your life, you want your closest and dearest standing next to you as you say ‘I do’.

Keeping the wedding minimal and theme-less, without any accented colours, this bride had all her bridesmaids (including a guy!) dress in dusty pink. What a lovely twist on an otherwise classic wedding. Thanks to Ben Yew Photography for capturing these beautiful moments.

Jade: “It’s quite hard to pinpoint any one moment as our whole day was amazing from beginning to end! Everything went according to plan, and it was so fulfilling to finally see everything come together!

“One moment I will always look back on with a smile is walking down the aisle and finally getting to see my husband. Our photographer Ben Yew also made the day so much fun. We wouldn’t have laughed as hard as we did if it weren’t for him. We all felt extremely comfortable around him, which allowed for some amazing photos. Our DJ Nathan Wheals was also great; he really made the reception the party we wanted it to be.

High ceilings, whitewashed walls and glass-stained windows gave this wedding a simple yet magical backdrop. We loved how everything was kept minimal yet elegant and classy with small details that made the wedding very personal – such as the beautiful flower arch and draping vines up against the white interior of the church, as well as the gold accents on the beautiful chandeliers and gilded pillars at the reception. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for this stunning set of photos.

Magdalene: “Months before the wedding, people constantly reminded us to not get caught up in wedding prep and the hustle and bustle of the actual day, but to really treasure and enjoy those moments. I think we took this advice very seriously.

“So when I was walking down the aisle with my dad, I wanted to remember that moment forever and told myself that I would only focus on Johnny. But who would have known that my (usually serious) father would be chatting the whole time I was walking down the aisle and saying stuff like, ‘Smile’, ‘Say hello to Auntie X’, and ‘Hey isn’t that your boss’! And there I was, trying to savour that precious moment and focus on my husband-to-be. Johnny, on the other hand, got so overwhelmed with emotion when he saw me walking down the aisle that he had to look away to stop himself from crying.

An Intimate Glasshouse Wedding in Sydney

They kept the colours simple with just white and dusty pink, and let nature do the rest. We especially loved the transparent marquee roof that gave this wedding ceremony its beautiful natural light.

Going hand in hand with the garden setting, the combination of bridal flowers, with lots of leafy greens, beautifully complemented the ceremony’s intimate feel, while the tea lights and floral centerpieces for the reception made for a simple yet elegant finish. Thanks to Jenny Sun Photography for this sweet set of photos.

Blush Pink Chic Wedding at City Harvest Kuala Lumpur

Unfortunately, Malaysia’s (often uncomfortable) tropical weather just doesn’t lend itself well to outdoor celebrations. But with its expansive windows and high ceilings that added to the glamour and beauty of this ceremony, City Harvest KL is arguably the next best thing to an outdoor wedding.

From the bridesmaids’ mismatched gold and glittery dresses and groomsmen’s dapper grey suits to the soft pink, white and green bridal bouquet, everything came together for this wedding, complementing each other perfectly. Just like the bride and groom. Thanks to Alextan Artworks for capturing this stylish and glamorous affair set up by Mint Events & Soirées.

If all brides planned their wedding like this couple, every wedding party would be a blast. From wedding favours you cannot say no to and free flowing booze to music that lasted into the night, these two were the perfect thoughtful hosts! We also adored their choice of bridesmaids’ dresses and the stunning bride’s bespoke dress by Jessicacindy. Thank you Axioo, for sending us this story. It must have been quite a treat to photograph this one.

A DIY Urban Industrial Chic Wedding

This couple made DIY so much more enjoyable. Their courage to explore different materials and prototypes to come up with something different and new made this wedding thoroughly theirs. They might have co-founded a laser cutting company but they didn’t just use it, they took the opportunity to push boundaries and reveal even more possibilities. We love the contemporary industrial theme. Thanks, Jonathan Ong, for sending this set over.

This bride headed out of town to hunt for her dream wedding venue, and she found it – a gorgeous chapel overlooking the ocean. These photos are lovely, and we have to thank MangoRed for them.

Olivia: “One of the most memorable parts was when I was waiting to walk down the aisle and the confirmation of our marriage. The bridegroom photo session at ‘Marlboro Country’ was breaktaking too, and I loved the father daughter dance, as well as our first dance as husband and wife.

There is so much to love about this wedding. Besides the fact that the couple looks gorgeous, they are also extremely talented. Their wedding totally charmed us with all its fun colours and lovely details. We will let the photos speak for themselves. Thanks, Axioo, for sharing this wonderful story with us.

Tips from the bride: “I’m pretty sure you can find wedding inspiration everywhere. The most important thing is to find not just good vendors, but the right vendors that will complement your style.”

Confessions Of A Bride: Destination Wedding At Le Meridien, Koh Samui

Photo by Chris Spira Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This Malaysian bride met her Australian groom while working in Hong Kong. They frequently walked to work together, and a relationship blossomed. He proposed in the Napa Valley after three years of courtship. This is more than just another beautiful wedding shoot by Chris Spira; it also provides great insight into the bride’s wedding planning process.

Bride: “We wanted a simple, cosy and intimate wedding. We wanted all our guests to get together for a holiday and hang out as a big family somewhere relaxing and calm, somewhere that most people hadn’t been to. Koh Samui was a strong choice – it was relatively easy to travel to and quieter compared to the more popular Phuket. We chose the date 13.12.14 because in Chinese, it sounds like ‘one life, one heart, forever’.

“Initially I wanted a lawn overlooking the sea, but it was very difficult to find a location in Koh Samui that could house the number of guests we had. We eventually chose Le Meridien because of its size, and we also fell in love with the idea of having The Pier that floats in the sea for the ceremony, and the lawn for the dinner.

There is no better spot to have a wedding than in front of an artist’s masterpiece, wouldn’t you say? The ‘Golden Mirror Carousel’ by Carsten Holler is breathtaking, with light reflecting off the golden surface. It is beautiful and, needless to say, not much décor is required. A bride who knows how to appreciate such a venue certainly has a creative flair, and this bride put much thought and DIY work into a lot of her wedding stationery. Thanks, Sayher Heffernan, for capturing the best moments of such a beautiful wedding.
