A Magical Forest Wedding At Pine Forest Camp Bandung

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

In this woodland realm, adorned with drapes of pearl, champagne and white, complemented by luxurious hues of earth and glass, the sounds of merry toasts and hearty cheers filled the air as Shelvin and Steven took their first dance as husband and wife.

We love the quaint elegance of luxury on a natural, rustic backdrop – the crystal goblets and candleholders, the splashes of bright red wildflowers, and the fairy lights that hovered like diamond dust. What a romantic, magical forest effect, and what an exquisite wedding celebration! Hats off to Iluminen for these remarkable photos.

There’s beauty to be found in the simplicity of a classic church wedding. This couple’s nuptials were a mix of cultures and traditions, incorporating a church wedding, a Chinese tea ceremony and a modern reception. We especially love the romantic garden shots from the reception, featuring fairy lights, geometric frames, lush greenery and that perfect sunset lighting. Many thanks to Iluminen Photography for this amazing set of wedding photos!

White On White Wedding With A Hint Of Pastel At Alila Seminyak Bali

Photo by Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

For years now, Bali has been the destination of choice for couples seeking cosy and intimate destination weddings – and for good reason! Saying your vows before God and your loved ones, overlooking the sparkling ocean with the sound of waves upon the shore, is nothing short of a blessing to be treasured forever.

Such was the case with Careen and Daniel’s wedding, a grand celebration of love and life that was filled with thoughtful details in ivory, cream, gold, earthy tones, and blue. Kudos to Adi from Axioo for these splendid captures!

Hosting a beach wedding in Bali in January meant risking rain, however the couple was determined. They chose Alila Seminyak Bali for its ample overhead coverage that served as a rain contingency, which allowed them to have a fantastic, worry-free outdoor wedding.

A Breathtaking Wedding In Tuscany, Italy

Photo by Gianluca Adovacio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The breathtaking landscape of Tuscany was more than what this couple had expected, and they were right to keep their décor minimal. With just family and close friends present, it was a cosy wedding ceremony indeed. The bride chose pale pink to complement to the rustic venue, and the warm tones of taupe, pale pink and lush green were equal parts romantic and glamorous. Many thanks to Gianluca Adovasio Photography for this wonderful set of photos!

A White On White Wedding At Dara Ayu Villas, Ubud

Photo by Gusmank Wedding Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Small, intimate weddings are perfect for a couple to personalise – from the guests to the décor and the way they choose to celebrate their union. For these newlyweds, their wedding felt like a real party, from the moment they exchanged their vows overlooking the gorgeous paddy fields of Bali right through to dancing the night away with their friends.

The bride looked absolutely resplendent in her lengha and white bridal gown, and the all-white décor certainly set an elegant tone, especially against that backdrop. Many thanks to Gusmank Wedding Photography for capturing these beautiful, sunny photos.

A Sunny Lakeside Wedding In Lake Como

Photo by Gianluca Adovacio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Oh, we couldn’t help but let out a dreamy sigh! Lake Como is the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding – from the gorgeous pops of yellow florals and the glittering lake in the background against the picturesque mountains to the ivy-covered classic Italian architecture. We love the bride’s romantic arrival by rowboat, and of course, the newlyweds’ unmistakable looks of love for each other. Many thanks to Rossini Studio for capturing this great occasion!

A Wes Anderson-Inspired Boho Chic Forest Wedding In Bandung

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

Set in the middle of a misty, dreamy forest and with a striking injection of colour, this wedding perfectly encapsulated the bride and groom’s personality. Thanks to their love for colour and pompoms, the Pine Hill in Bandung was transformed into a fun, bright festival in celebration of this joyous occasion.

Some things were kept simple, such as the bridesmaids’ dresses, which were in silver grey. But we were absolutely blown away by the bride’s reception gown, with its full orange skirt that perfectly complemented the many textures and colours of this soiree. An additional decorative note that we loved – the giant dream catcher set in the middle of their wedding arch. What a perfect design choice! Many thanks to Fire, Wood & Earth for this amazing set of photos, and to Bozza Event Organizer for bringing such a crazy concept to life.

Even when you’re in your home country, you can have a destination wedding of sorts! This couple had their wedding ceremony in Jakarta Cathedral, then their dinner reception the next day at The Edge Villas Uluwatu, Bali.

Jakarta Cathedral, with its vaulted teakwood ceilings and sunlight streaming through long, narrow windows above the grand main altar, needed only minimal decorations. From the bride’s baby’s breath bouquet to the white-on-white floral pew hangers and textured white carpet, everything was kept simple. This allowed the grandeur of the venue to truly shine, lending an air of solemnity and awe to the proceedings.

Many thanks to Illuminen Photography for sharing these wonderful photos with us.

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 Tropical Glamour Cosy Beach Wedding in Uluwatu, Bali

Wedding at The Istana, Uluwatu Bali. Photo by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Keeping things romantic and intimate yet glamorous, this bride and groom definitely infused their wedding with their personality, from the bride opting to wear a glitzy gold gown in lieu of a traditional white wedding dress to her bridesmaids wearing all-black gowns. Complementing the bride was the groom in his dark floral blazer, the groomsmen’s white shirts and leaf boutonnières, and the floral bouquets of tropical leafy greens and pineapples as aisle décor. We especially love the lush green wedding arch where the couple exchanged their vows in front of their close family and friends, overlooking the romantic beaches of Uluwatu. Many thanks to Terralogical Photography for this truly romantic set of wedding photos!

An East-Meets-West Vineyard Wedding In France

Bluecicada Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Vineyards are the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, and we love how this couple infused their personality, story and heritage into their nuptials. Besides the subtle inclusion of the bride’s half-Indian heritage and the groom’s creative designs, they also included their friends and family, as well as utilised the romantic outdoor space to the fullest.

Keeping their décor minimal to enhance the French vineyard setting, they used lavender as part of the decorations and everything just came together beautifully. Many thanks to Et Voila Weddings for another beautiful wedding and Caroline Cuinet Wellings of BlueCicada Photography for this incredible set of photos. The bride was truly resplendent and the wedding looked every bit out of a fairytale.

Nina: “We had a clear vision of the atmosphere we wanted for the wedding: something relaxed but special as our friends and family would have travelled to be there. We were looking for somewhere with a wow factor but not a traditional French Chateaux as we wanted it outdoors to make the most of the beautiful Provençale countryside. The vine arch was a natural focal point for the ceremony and the courtyard was perfect for dinner as it was enclosed but outdoors, retaining a really intimate feel. As soon as we saw the venue, we knew it was perfect.

“I’m half-Indian and I wanted to incorporate some of the Indian and Hindu traditions into the wedding. My dress was the first one I tried on but I loved it as it was so different – it complemented my figure and it was made from crinkled silk chiffon, which gathered at the centre to create a short train – almost like a saree. I also wore Indian-style jewellery. My bridesmaids’ dresses felt slightly Indian-inspired as well, as they were bejewelled and the skirt was draped in the front – similar to my dress. The flowergirl dresses were from India, and they had bangles and bags from India to throw lavender from.

Imagine exchanging your vows overlooking the gorgeous Andaman Ocean, in the presence of your closest friends and family, with the salty sea breeze in your hair and soft sand between your toes. That’s exactly what this bride and groom did. The bride looked resplendent in her lace-back mermaid-style wedding gown, which was perfectly complemented by her bridal bouquet of white roses and flowers. Many thanks to Andy Phe Photography for these incredibly stunning shots.
