There’s always the risk of rain when it comes to an outdoor garden wedding, but the risk also pays off – there will be gratitude if the weather complies, and you learn to smile through the hard times if it doesn’t.

For this couple’s lovely nuptials, they got rain before Mother Nature finally blessed them with clear skies, and the joy on their special day was palpable. The powder blue theme with hints of blush and gold perfectly complemented the lush greens of the garden, with added decorative pops of baby’s breath. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing these beautifully sweet photos.

High ceilings and wooden decorative elements make for a perfect rustic vintage wedding, what more if some of the wooden details were actually crafted by the groom himself?

This couple chose to personalise their wedding in a very special way, and complementing their wooden décor was a gorgeous colour palette of dusty blue and soft pastel pink, all brought together with touches of gold. Many thanks to hellojanelee Photography for capturing these wonderful moments – from the joy and laughter right down to the amazing décor!

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!

A Sweet Pastel Outdoor Garden Wedding at Thistle Port Dickson

Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Outdoor weddings mean you’re at the mercy of unpredictable weather, and for this lucky couple, their wedding was blessed with last minute sunshine! They got to exchange their vows against the backdrop of a picturesque sunset by the beach, with the salty sea breeze and a beautiful flower arch. Pastel colours and florals added a sweet romantic touch to the décor, and we especially love the different bridesmaid dress styles. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing this beautiful garden wedding!

May: “Every single thing was amazing and memorable! It was an outdoor wedding and forecasts from various sources indicated a thunderstorm for that day. The weather for the few days before the wedding was consistently thunderstorms. We were all prepared for the wet weather plan and I thought months of wedding preparations were going to be washed away by the rain.

“But on our wedding day, it drizzled a bit during the rehearsal that afternoon and then it stopped. We were all holding our breaths till the very last minute… and then a miracle happened! The sun came out from behind the dark clouds and the weather was perfect throughout the matrimonial ceremony and dinner. Both Gentry and I have been so blessed by God in many ways, including our wonderful friends and families who prayed for us and journeyed with us throughout our wedding. We are forever grateful!

“We wanted an outdoor wedding by the beach and our venue was perfect – a garden overlooking the Straits of Malacca. Our matrimonial ceremony was held during sunset, so we thought warm colours would be great. We love white and pastel colours so we chose white, gold, faded pink and faded grey as our colour palette. We had thank you cards with a heartfelt message from us to each guest who attended the wedding – we thought it would be a good and simple memento for our guests to keep.”

Tips from the bride: “Just relax and enjoy the biggest day of your life!”

A Gilded, Glamorous Wedding At Tanarimba, Janda Baik

This juxtaposition of gold and gilded glamour against the lush greenery of nature certainly made for a comfortable yet elegant wedding. Despite the detailed décor, the couple kept things cosy and intimate, infusing much of their personality into their wedding. With simple décor points like white drapery and green vines looping the wedding arch, modern bridesmaids’ dresses, magical hanging lights, and elaborate, gorgeous centrepieces with hanging vines and beads, everything came together perfectly. Many thanks to Brian Ho of thegaleria for capturing this stunning set of photos.

Charlotte: “It was really special to have my father walk beside me and give me away to the man I was about to marry. It was the best father-daughter moment. He was way more composed than me, as he was calm, smiling and initiated applause from our guests. When he handed me over to Adam, he paused and said, ‘Please take good care of her for me.’ Strong emotions welled up and we had to hold back tears.

“Another special moment was when Adam surprised me by singing ‘Like I’m Gonna Lose You’ and serenaded us into our first dance. Also, when I stepped into our venue hall early in the morning of our big day and saw that my entire extended family was already there busy setting up and decorating the whole place. I knew the day was going to be more than great because everyone who has loved and supported us from day one were there.

“We wanted a place that was away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet not too far away. We loved the greenery and wooden structures of Tanarimba and felt comfortable in that setting. Adam and I wanted to make sure our wedding had a lot of ‘us’ and our personality in it. We had each of our guests’ names written in calligraphy (by my best friend) for their place cards, the napkins were imprinted with our wedding logo, the tables were named according to our relationship milestones (such as our courtship, where he proposed, our first kiss, etc). And for wedding favours, we had our logo made into stickers and stuck them onto wine glasses for the guests to eventually take home.”

Tips from the bride: “We were our own wedding planners so if you’re going down that route too, get your gowns, heels and makeup sorted early, as that’ll give you more time to plan the rest. I used a lot of images from Pinterest and created a moodboard to share with my bridal party. Be certain about what you want, delegate tasks according to your strengths, make a list to prioritise what is absolutely necessary and what can be omitted based on budget. For example, a good photographer is paramount, so I made sure I got one whose style is one I admired. Also, make very thorough event briefs and communicate that meticulously to your trusted friends who’ll be helping you coordinate your wedding day because on that day, you’ll just want to look beautiful, soak in the moments, and rock and roll.”

A Dusty Blue And Cream Modern Wedding At Marble 8

Sometimes the best wedding ideas appear when you’re not looking, and that’s what happened with this bride, as she fell in love with what she thought was an unconventional wedding colour. The result was a sleek and elegant modern wedding: from the floral adornments of the lush hedge wall framing the couple’s exchange of vows, to the gold glitter tablecloth that added a touch of glamour.

Blue Shabby Chic Backyard Wedding

It can’t get any more intimate and cosy than tying the knot right in your own backyard – which is what Tze Yip and Kai Hsin of Craft Kitchen did. Despite keeping things simple and DIY, this wedding looked classic and well put together, from the altar decorated with leafy greens and flowers to the blue and white streamers and tea lights, adding that little touch of magic. Thanks to Inlight Photos for this wonderful set of snapshots.

While most people wouldn’t think to have their destination wedding at Cameron Highlands, most of us agree that having an outdoor garden wedding in KL could potentially be quite uncomfortable for everyone!

Combining Mother Nature with the talent and artistry of their friends, this couple DIY-ed a beautiful, intimate and cosy space in which to say “I do”. Thanks to Peter Herman Photography for capturing these special moments.

A Rustic Garden Wedding At Shangri-la’s Rasa Ria Resort

Photo by The Vow Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Get up on your feet… and dance! We loved how this wedding was just as much of a party as it was a witness of two people coming together in a union of marriage. From the newlyweds’ first dance (the groom made his bride’s wishes come true!) to the guests dancing the night away, it was memorable on every front.

The long tables with gilded Tiffany chairs, lush floral tablescapes and beautiful hanging lights in brass geometric planters made for a resplendently glamorous setting. Combine that with the sea breeze and calming sounds of the ocean, and it was a real sight to behold. Many thanks to The Vow Studio for capturing these special moments, and to Michelle of Wedstyle for putting together such a well-detailed wedding.

Michelle of Wedstyle: “Based in Brunei and due to the many restrictions in the country, the couple decided to have a destination wedding in one of their favourite places: Kota Kinabalu! They had their closest family and friends spend a few special days with them in the lead up to the big day, and relived all the fun memories together for days after too.

“Guan and Kimberly’s first dance was so special and romantic – it was like a fairytale come true for her, as he doesn’t really dance and had to practice the dance routine a lot prior to the wedding!”

“As both the bride and groom are outgoing, fun and love the sun and sea – they wanted a beach wedding theme that was classy and modern at the same time. They are lovers of jazz and funk music, so we found this amazing 12-piece band from Kuala Lumpur and flew them in just to perform at the wedding. The band was worth every cent as everyone was on their feet the entire night.

“To top it all off, we found a fantastic DJ for the after-party in one of the private function spaces at the resort. We transformed it into a nightclub and everyone was dancing until 4am. Needless to say, it was an awesome night!”

Tips from the wedding planner: “Try not to do everything yourself. Engage some professional help if possible as they would know who’s the best vendor for you according to your style and budget. Most brides don’t realise it’s more important that they enjoy their big day rather than stress over every little detail. It’s helpful to have someone who’s not part of the family plan/coordinate the wedding instead.”

A Contemporary White And Lilac Wedding At Semara Luxury Villa Resort

Photo by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes in life we need to take a leap of faith and just believe. This bride saw pictures and booked the venue, Semara Uluwatu, which many might say was an irrational thing for her to do. But she didn’t regret it and it turned out absolutely jaw dropping. Trust your gut feeling when choosing all your vendors, otherwise there will be no end to your search. Another beautiful set by Terralogical.

Yess: “Our officiant James Sietstra’s personal anecdotes of me and Paco made the occasion more meaningful and not just ceremonious. He’s Paco’s best friend from college who knows the both of us very well. We kept our vows very real, personal and funny, and we think that the guests appreciated this because they were able to relate to some of the things that we shared. When Paco recited ‘How Do I Love Thee’ by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, I knew that the poem would have a special place in my heart forever:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

“Coming from the Philippines and belonging specifically to the Filipino Chinese community, weddings with 500 guests are considered standard. When we started wedding planning, we knew that we wanted a much more intimate affair and so decided to have it abroad. Bali was an easy choice because we fell in love with the charming island when we visited a few years back. We wanted an outdoor wedding to take advantage of Bali’s beautiful weather in September, and we took it to the next level by having it cliff-side. On our wedding coordinator’s recommendation, we saw photos of Semara Uluwatu’s sweeping views online and immediately booked the place before even seeing it in person. When we finally saw the place, my jaw dropped as I took in the unbelievable landscape – it was truly paradise right before my eyes.
