Vintage Flavoured Engagement Shoot in Cameron Highlands

Photo by Hellow Jane Lee. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Very often, we come across a set of images that leave us mesmerised by their raw beauty and the sheer simplicity of the intent behind it. This album is one of them. We love the way her crimson gown infuses life into the indoor and outdoor settings, and the couple’s enjoyment of the rolling hills of Cameron Highlands, Pahang. We love the little vintage shop sporting all things antique and classically Malaysian. Tastefully set up and shot, they are a superb addition to the photos.

We smile at the couple’s beautiful cross-cultural relationship, and the way the energy and characteristics of their individual cultures come together in tender moments like these. We know these photos will be gentle yet firm reminders of their beautiful love story in the decades to come, as they transition into coming seasons together. Thanks for this amazing album, hellojanelee!

Photo by Jessiel Yee Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

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.”

Photo by Chester Kher Creations. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We pored over this fashionista’s bold and fun engagement album with delight; her retro chic look was just so stylish and vibrant! Thanks to the groom’s new job, this couple is about to begin a new life together in Hong Kong, and these photos, featuring its iconic cityscape and picturesque ocean views, perfectly capture the couple’s union and sense of anticipation. Well done, Chester Kher Creations!

“The couple first met in Kota Kinabalu, and then dated while they were living in Kuala Lumpur,” shared Chester Kher Creations. “This shoot marks the beginning of a new chapter for them.” We just love the personalisation that they infused into their photos. There are no rules when it comes to styling your engagement or pre-wedding shoot, so have fun and be creative with yours.

Natural And Blush Wedding Ceremony at Church of Saints Peter And Paul, Singapore

To have a truly blessed wedding day, a couple must start right at the beginning and seek only the things that matter. We see it here, in this couple’s tastefully and thoughtfully planned wedding that was held at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, Singapore. With tall stained glass windows and white walled interiors, we couldn’t help but notice that when a venue is as rich and gorgeous as this, there is little need for further ornamentation. Thank you for these brilliant shots, Bloc Memoire Photography!

Engagement Shoot in Snowy Dinner Plain, Australia

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Snow, skis, hot chocolate by the fire, cuddles and a poodle – we can’t imagine a cosier engagement shoot than this. Having both resided in Australia for a number of years, this couple’s engagement shoot at a ski resort in snowy Dinner Plain reflected their shared love for snowboarding. And of course, it would not have been complete without their pet poodle, Mia. Kudos to Munkeat Photography for this mesmerising album!

“One of the biggest challenges during the planning process was sourcing shoot locations and finding the right attire,” shared Munkeat Photography. “Winter in Australia usually sees popular ski spots packed with holidaymakers, which would have served up an additional challenge. Fortunately the groom found Dinner Plain, which is more private and less touristy. Best of all, the oaken resort fit our theme perfectly.”

Simple Yet Stylish Bridal Portraits at Dempsey Hill Singapore

Photo by Kompactfaen Photography and Cinematography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We love how this couple’s private celebration of new jobs and careers was sweetened by a surprise marriage proposal – and she said yes! The cameras rolled quietly in the background, capturing the special moment and all the joy that followed. The couple’s matching outfits on the day said plenty about the way they instinctively complement each other.

“They’ve always wanted to keep their proposal private and intimate, and the groom wanted to keep this as low-key as possible,” Chong Kuo Loon of Kompactfaen Photography + Cinematography said. “We did a little shoot around Dempsey Hill to showcase the dynamics of their quiet yet edgy relationship. They are a little quirky, a little eccentric yet unique – it was all marvelous to capture.” Many thanks to Kompactfaen Photography + Cinematography for these fantastic shots!

Industrial Aviation-themed Wedding at Whup Whup

Photo by Memoir Click Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

On the lookout for a rustic-esque-industrial ambience, Whup Whup came perfectly in line with their expectations. “Since we are both in the aviation industry as pilot and flight attendant, we decided to include that as a theme in our wedding. And since it was the week of Christmas, we spiced things up with some Christmas touch to it,” the bride shares.

“I’m really thankful to my groom for his every effort in our wedding. He did almost everything! He built the wedding arch, the backdrop, collected the trolley carts from airport, folded the paper planes, liased with all the vendors etc. As I’m based in Dubai, it was really hard for me to travel back home for the wedding preparations. We are truly blessed to have our family and friends to help us with all the DIY the night before the big day!”

Thanks MCS Wedding Gallery for sharing with us this set.

We were absolutely floored by the magnificence of Queenstown, New Zealand, as captured in this couple’s pre-wedding shoot. These amazing shots certainly evoke the deep sense of quality, life and beauty that only nature can provide. This adventurous couple worked hard in the cold, enduring various weather conditions and cosying up at the various spots they discovered with their photographer. The miles of meadow, with snowcapped mountains in the distance, billowy clouds overhead and the brilliant galaxy of stars in the night sky, are simply out of this world! Thanks, VRP Photography, for this beautiful set!

Dreamy and Passionate Bridal Portraits at the Sand Dunes in Malacca

Photo by Jasmine A of Munkeat Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes bridal portraits can appear to be more than just a snapshot of two newlyweds-to-be; they can look as dreamy and professional as an editorial shoot. For these newlyweds, it didn’t matter what the backdrop was – from the sand dunes of Pantai Klebang, Malacca, to the roads of KL and in a cosy coffee shop, it was clear all they had were eyes for each other, and that’s what truly mattered. Many thanks to Jasmine. A Photography for capturing these stolen moments – it’s amazing to freeze a moment of intimacy that perfectly encapsulates this couple’s engagement.
