A DIY Ethereal Luxe Tropical Wedding at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Penang

Munkeat Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We love the warmth and thought poured into this beautiful wedding at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa Penang. To celebrate the beginning of the rest of their lives together, they chose the theme of “ethereal luxe tropical”, a soothing and gorgeous colour palette with intimate details that highlighted the people and parts of their lives that they cared about. We were deeply moved by the way they left a note on a chair for a parent who was not there. What a beautiful gesture to honour the love of a father. Thanks for these brilliant captures, MunKeat Studio

Lavender Grey Bohemian DIY Wedding at Tanarimba Janda Baik

Photo by Bitesize Visuals. www.theweddingnotebook.com

As they pledge their lives to each other as man and wife, their union solemnised before God and loved ones, this couple’s hard work in putting their DIY wedding together is a beautiful and telling story of how they approach their marriage.

Their priority was the venue as both of them love the outdoors and wanted a place that had both indoor and outdoor options. They chose to go bohemian for the occasion, the casual vibes complementing the serene surroundings of Janda Baik. The uplifting colour palette of green, lavender grey, and copper gave the already splendid venue a touch of their personality. Thank you, Bitesize Visuals, for the great captures!

A Dreamy Bohemian Garden Wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu

Photo by Diktatphotography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

So much of this wedding was infused with the newlyweds’ own style and quirky personality. Against a colour palette of whites and nudes, other elements such as the golden plates, decorative branches and geometric vases added a dramatic flair. We love the bride’s beautiful lace bridal grown, paired with a bold vampy lip, and the groom’s unusual beige double-breasted suit!

Complementing the couple were the bridal party’s coordinating outfits – blouse and skirt combos for the pretty bridesmaids and dark suits for the dapper groomsmen. Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali is known for its serene location overlooking the ocean, and indeed it is a picture perfect place to tie the knot. Thanks to DiktatPhotography for capturing this special day.

Dig a little deeper and you will find that there are many hidden wedding venue gems within the Klang Valley. We were absolutely delighted with this tropical paradise wedding at Ma-Ni Thai Cuisine in Tanjong Malim, Hulu Langat, and impressed with this couple’s creative touches that sought to bring family and friends together for a memorable evening without overstretching their budget.

The venue’s towering palm trees and luscious foliage set the perfect stage for the fun and romantic evening they had in mind. The sounds of camaraderie filled the air as guests showed up colourful outfits, adding visual and audible life to the occasion. Thank you, Jessielyee Photography, for this amazing album!

“We chose the venue before deciding on the theme,” shared the bride. “From there, we knew what theme would be suitable, and we ran navy blue and orange through it. We also chose just one flower, the Bird of Paradise, so as not to have too many species crowd our theme.

“We presented guests with cute little tropical fruit-scented soaps as wedding favours. To personalise the gifts further, each guest was provided with a booklet of our love story and programme for the night. We are very grateful to have had a group of friends to help us with the whole planning and coordination of the wedding. Most things were prepared DIY with the help of friends, from flower arrangements to the desserts. We are also very thankful that the owner of the restaurant (who became our friend after this) personally ensured that everything went well. We served a scrumptious Thai meal to all our guests and they enjoyed it.”

Tips from the bride: “I think the best tip is to always remember that as much as we would like to make our dream wedding a reality, it is more important to focus on the marriage. Wedding is only a one­day event but marriage is a lifelong journey. Plan your wedding according to your means and budget, do not splurge on unnecessary things just to make it ‘instagrammable’. You can still do that but do it in a creative way; it’s quite fun to challenge yourself to find other ways to make things nice and see how things work out in the end. I think one of the most important things is to choose a good photographer and videographer who can capture all those magical moments in the wedding so you can look back on it with your husband when you are 90 and relive those moments together.

“I also think the quality of the food is very important, especially when your wedding requires travelling out of the city. We respected our family and friends’ time and we knew it would be great to end the night with a scrumptious meal as a treat to thank everyone for being a part of our big day.”

An Elegant Woodland Garden Party in NSW, Australia

Photo by Tealily Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Oh, these newlyweds really knocked it out of the park with their dreamy woodland romance. From the ivy and green décor to the sparklers, this was all kinds of a midsummer’s night dream. Against the clean and simple palette of green, white and pale pink, the only things that really shone were the bride’s bright smile and everyone’s uncontainable joy. The dancing, happy toasts and sweet vows were the main event of the day. Many thanks to Tealily Photography for capturing these amazing shots!

A DIY Rustic Chic Wedding at Rowan & Parsley, Johor Bahru

Photo by Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Their intention to keep things cosy and simple did not stop these newlyweds from pulling out all the stops when it came to the little details that added flair and elegance to their wedding soiree. What’s even more impressive was that the wedding was entirely DIY. Granted, the venue was already a gem on its own, but the flowers and liberal use of eucalyptus, ferns and herbs really brought the rustic chic theme together. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous set of photos, Peter Herman Photography!

White, Blush and Gold Rustic Garden Wedding in Tanarimba Janda Baik

Photo by Fixer Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Bad weather is a typical concern for couples who choose to wed outdoors, and Pei Pei and Vincent didn’t get to say their vows until later on, when Pretty Little Things were able to slot it into the wedding reception. “It really meant a lot to us,” she said. Kudos to Pretty Little Things for thinking on their feet, and many thanks to Sam Leong of Fixer Photography for these brilliant photos!

Luscious Green And Blush Rustic Garden Wedding At Pulai Spring Resort Johor

Photo by Louis Han Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It was their mutual love for classical music and the outdoors that made Pulai Spring Resort Johor an easy yes for this handsome couple. “From the moment we set foot in it actually,” the bride, Michelle, shared.

Set on a golf course, the resort features a vast expanse of greenery, providing the couple with the canvas they had always envisioned for their wedding. Theming the affair “Rustic Garden”, they ornamented the pretty lawn with a palette of pink and pastels, plus hints of gold for a romantic touch.

“Hani, our florist, did a fantastic job making our day beautiful,” said Michelle. And for the proverbial cherry on top, the newlyweds marched out to the melodious tune of ‘Viva la Vida’, played by the popular string quartet Dimento. Thanks for these awesome pictures, Louis Gan Photography!

An Earthy DIY Cosy Garden Wedding

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes the best-laid plans are when there are fewer or close to no plans. These newlyweds pulled off their cosy garden wedding, including DIY projects such as the ring pillow and wedding arch, in surprisingly little time!

The garden surroundings were the perfect complement to their simple and clean colour palette. Keeping with the nature theme, the bridal bouquet was understated and gorgeous, with eucalyptus branches standing in contrast to the white and cream flowers. Also juxtaposed against the green and white shades were the wooden textures and accents. Meanwhile, the bridal party wore grey to keep things neutral and ensure that the focus was on the bridal couple’s celebration of their love for each other. Thanks for these beautifully captured shots, MunKeat Photography.
