Dreamy Peach on White Garden Wedding at Puncak Dani Bungalow, Pahang

Louis Loo Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This is such a fantastic wedding at Puncak Dani Bungalow in Pahang. We love the sense of freshness, and the creative décor in white and peach tones. The bride looked amazing in her beautiful long-sleeved lace gown, and her groom was indeed handsome in a blue suit. In her hand, the bride held a classy bouquet of blush and green blooms that gently added colour to the overall look. Thanks for these gorgeous captures, Louis Loo Photography

Stunning Bridal Portraits Taken in Yosemite National Park and Arizona

Bobby Kiran Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Some of Mother Nature’s wonders are so magnificent and mind-blowing you can actually feel your breath being taken away. Check out these stunning bridal portraits that were taken in Yosemite National Park and the awe-inspiring Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend in Arizona, USA – they’re absolutely jaw-dropping! We love that stunning red dress on her and that gorgeous cobalt suit on him. Surely these dramatic and elegant shots by www.bobbykiranco.com will be treasured for a lifetime.

Joyce: “Our photographer, Bobby’s brother, had recently returned from Yosemite, and we fell in love with the explosion of colours in various parts of the park. After much research, especially on Pinterest, we discovered these other areas in Arizona. We’d never been to any of these locations even as tourists, so we figured we’d make an adventure out of it as well!

“Planning wise, I would be the one finding photo ops and their locations while Beam would do the plotting of routes. Our entire photoshoot took about five days, including travelling.

“As cliché as it sounds, the most memorable part of the whole trip was the experience itself, and to have my husband with me. We made sure to be present in the moment and appreciate the beauty around us. We were also very fortunate to have found an anchoring friendship in Bobby and his fiancée. This whole experience truly was a dream come true for us.”

Romantic Floral Themed Studio Bridal Portraits

Photo by Inlight photos. www.theweddingnotebook.com

While most of us tend to opt for outdoor bridal portraits, not least for the natural lighting, we are all at the mercy of the weather and its unpredictability. Fortunately for this couple, Joshua Koh of Joshua Koh Photography and Sherly of Tie the Knot were able to bring the outdoors inside, thanks to their liberal use of flowers, minimal props, and beautiful lighting. The results are light and sweet, invoking a sense of spring, which is appropriate given that spring is the season of love, after all. What a fresh take on studio bridal portraits, and we love the bride’s gorgeous asymmetrical hem bridal gown with pockets!

Sherly of Tie the Knot: “We live in a tropical country where the weather is not so conducive to outdoor photoshoots. We have to deal with humidity, heat and unpredictable rain. With that in mind, we decided to gather a small group of industry friends, including Joshua Koh of Inlight Photo, and together with one of his bridal clients, bring this studio styled shoot to life. As the studio had white walls and lots of natural light, we decided to go for a romantic spring feel. It’s not easy bringing the outdoors inside hence we kept it light, airy and sweet for the very cute couple.”

A Romantic and Dreamy Stormy Blue Wedding in Queenstown

Photography by Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Oh, this wedding is straight out of a reverie – with soft stormy blue accents, pale pink flowers and frosty greens, the colour palette had all the makings of a fantasy dreamland. Set in New Zealand, where the natural terrain is already indisputably beautiful, the newlyweds paid close attention to the little things, bringing all the details together like it was meant to be. Just like their union.

From textured throws to gilded candlesticks for a tinge of drama, the props included antlers that gave the wedding a rustic feel. The bridal portraits were stunning of course, thanks to the tall trees and rolling hills. But our favourite was the unbelievably beautiful bridal bouquet, truly one of the most beautiful we’ve seen yet, and that dreamy blue sash! Beautifully captured by AHA of Axioo, these photos totally took our breath away.

Fall Colours and Fur Babies For This Minimalist Wedding at Chun Tsubaki, Singapore

Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A wedding is truly meant to reflect the personality of the newlyweds, and for this couple, that meant including their cats! Keeping things minimalist, with muted tones and neutral decorations, this cosy and beautiful wedding showed hints of glamour in the dramatic, tall floral elements and fairy lights. The happy couple looked resplendent as they celebrated their union with loved ones, and we love the bride’s tasteful, long-sleeved lace dress, styled with a lovely side braid. Thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for these wonderfully captured photos!

Minimalist Outdoor Engagement Portraits at Sai Kung, Hong Kong

Photo by Sophia Kwan Weddings. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We love these engagement portraits! Shot in Hong Kong’s Sai Kung Peninsula, which is known for its quaint fishing villages, hiking paths, beaches and mountain scenery, each and every frame is refreshingly pure and true to the couple and their affection for each other.

The bride-to-be was gorgeous in a minimalist, spaghetti strap V-neck satin and taffeta gown. She later changed into a second outfit, a halter dress with a sexy open back, while her groom stayed fittingly dapper in his grey suit.

Pastel hued flowers in the bride’s bouquet provided soft touches of colour that helped to bring the neutral shades to life. Finally, the couple went casual, their comfortable outfits radiating an easy-going charm that was relaxed, cosy, and very telling of their personality. Thanks for sharing these splendid photos with us, Sophia Kwan!

A Romantic Lavender Garden Wedding at Pandawa Cliff Estate, Bali

Photo by Fire Wood And Earth. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There’s something so romantic about getting married by the sea, and it’s even better if you’re up on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The bride and groom of this wedding chose to build their wedding theme around the colour lavender, punctuated with wooden accents such as rattan pendant lights, oak chairs and wooden plates. The combination of grey, green and blush pink with lavender was beautiful and effortlessly elegant. Many thanks to Fire, Wood & Earth for this absolutely gorgeous set of photos!

Resplendent Blush on White Wedding at Darlington Estate Perth

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Behind every beautiful wedding is a story of priorities and decisions. From the gorgeous cathedral where they said their vows to the charming oaken reception hall, Darlington Estate brought this couple’s every conceivable wedding ideal to life.

This Indonesian couple living in Australia had made the decision to host their wedding in Perth, and very quickly, they found the idea of hosting their wedding in a winery with a rustic concept appealing and feasible. The estate would be private and secluded, just as they desired. The couple rolled up their sleeves and infused everything that mattered to them into the day, organising the wedding themselves and enlisting the help of a friend, Evyta Irawan of @eloqui.co, to design all the stationery. It was extra special because Evyta had also been their matchmaker! Thank you for this lovely album, Iluminen.

“It really was amazing to look around and think that all these people had travelled all the way to Perth out of love and support for us,” said the bride. “Most of our friends were from overseas – Indonesia, Hong Kong and the United States. We felt so blessed that people from different stages of our lives had all come together to celebrate with us.

“In the days leading up to the wedding, news reports confirmed that there would be a thunderstorm on our wedding day, and that made us very nervous. But thankfully, the rains only came after everyone had been seated inside. In the end, the shower created a beautiful tapestry of raindrops and cloudy skies.”

The floral arrangements were unstructured, romantic and rustic-style with a garden-inspired feel, brilliantly done by Anneliese of @signaturefloraldesign. And instead of a photobooth, a Polaroid guestbook table stood as a delightful space where guests could snap Polaroid photos and leave signed messages for the newlyweds.

Tips from the bride: “Follow wedding inspiration pages on Instagram or Pinterest. If you are confused by the myriad themes and colours palettes, just ‘like’ plenty of pictures and you will eventually identify with the style you love most. 
 
“Just remember that no two weddings are the same. Don’t stress out on having the exact designs that you want. The truth is that choosing a suitable vendor who identifies with your style is more important than opting for the most famous or expensive ones. Do that, and leave the rest to them.

“Lastly, budget your wedding costs properly as they can blow up. Prioritise where you should spend your money. Most importantly, your wedding should be fun instead of stressful! It is okay to get rid of many unnecessary details and pretentious wedding traditions – with the approval of your family, of course.”

1920s Shanghainese and Jazz Themed Wedding at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Louis Loo Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We found ourselves poring over this gorgeous wedding album taken at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur again and again for its rich tones and meaningful accents – all thanks to the thoughtful bride. Having grown up in a traditional Chinese family, she was eager to embrace her heritage by making a bold statement at the most significant celebration of her life.

Together with her groom, they decided on a 1920s Shanghainese and jazz theme, creating an opulent balance between traditional and modern. With Wishing Tree’s help, they got a photo wall that provided a traditional touch, while the banquet hall resembled a jazz bar. Thank you for these captivating photos, Louis Loo Photography!

At Home With You Through Every Season

Photo by Bitesize Visuals. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Here’s a great take on enjoying the simplest pleasures of married life together. Being in a long distance relationship, this couple savoured the rare chance to spend quality time together by having a photoshoot that best depicted how they love to hang out. The snow-skin mooncakes and pu erh tea weren’t just for the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival, but also a remarkable way to honour their Asian heritage.

In this down to earth and authentic album, the couple documented a regular and relaxed day at home. Their celebration of the simple memories they hold dear included preparing food for loved ones and enjoying each other’s company and conversation. A thousand thanks for this marvellous album, Bitesize Visuals!
