Vintage Bridal Portraits

Photography by Jangguttouch. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The thing about outdoor photoshoots in Malaysia is you can hardly predict the weather. Cool weather, however, isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Oftentimes what is unplanned can seem all the more beautiful and unique. Of course a good photographer who knows how to adapt is important.

Jangguttouch: “The day was cloudy and hazy. The weather was obviously not on our side. We could not get proper light. However, at the click of the first shutter, we could feel that we would have breathtaking photos later. The haze and the branches of fallen trees helped us to create a temperate-climate setting. Everything made the day amazingly perfect!”

Music And Words

Arvinna Lee and Hayashida Ken were classmates in Temasek Polytechnic School of Design. They sat next to each other on the first day of school and have been best friends ever since. But nothing happened until about two years ago, when Ken asked her out and Arvinna began to see him in a new light.

Arvinna: “Our theme was very simple and minimalist. Small and cosy, so we could have more time with our friends. We didn’t even bother with the gatecrashing ceremony. The subtle theme behind it was ‘Music and Words’.

“Ken is a music person, being in a band, and he arranged for his singer to perform for me. Of course, he also coordinated the music for the entire night. While I was preparing the speech, I also included quotes from the authors and musicians that were featured in the card I designed. When the invitation cards were printed and we saw our names together, it really hit us that we were going to be wed. It was quite surreal for me.

“Ken wanted to buy the Cartier Trinity wedding band for me, but they didn’t have stock in my size in Singapore. At the time, our wedding was in two months, and Cartier Singapore needed about half a year to bring it in. Our friend was in Berlin at the time, and he went to Cartier Berlin to see if they had any stock. It so happened that they did, and he brought it back to Singapore for us. I remember thinking this little trinket travelled halfway around the world to help Ken seal the deal.”

In A Different Realm

Photography by MangoRed. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Garovs majored in Fashion Design & Merchandising in university, while Ryan in Multimedia Arts. The both of them own Everywhere We Shoot, whose work has been in most major magazines in the country and even abroad. Having seen their bridal portraits and infographics invitations, you must be wondering, how creative can they get in a traditional church wedding?

Well, how could it not be creative when some of Manila’s most talented creative people were involved? The thing we love most about this wedding isn’t that it’s so out of the norm, but that this couple knew who they were and kept to it.

If you strip everything away and look closely at the wedding highlights, you will see the way Ryan looked at his bride as she walked down the aisle, and realise this is no different from other weddings – they are a couple who love each other dearly and that is all that matters.

Garovs said, “The most joyful moment was walking down the aisle and seeing our family and friends crying, smiling, laughing!”

As for their wedding concept, she said, “We wanted our wedding styling to look like an altar of our life together, as if we’d died and were born again. With this in mind, we opted not to have flowers, but have our guests and entourage wear florals and graphics. Our church aisle was like a walk in the clouds, and our venue was styled as if you were going through a blur of memories, then later getting washed away into our all-white dinner area.

“We are thankful that our suppliers understood what we wanted and executed everything beautifully and seamlessly. Enjoy the planning, and leave the rest to the experts. On your wedding day all you will see are the faces of your friends and family!”

‘Everywhere We Wed: An Anti-Wedding Film’ is not for the faint of heart. As the film faded out, Raimund Marasigan of Sandwich played the first bars of Cure’s ‘Pictures of You’, and the guests welcomed the entrance of the newlyweds.

A Wedding With A Hint Of Scottish Influence

Imagine an all-white rustic country wedding with a hint of Scottish influence. Romantic and fun, this is what you get from a beautiful Italian-Scottish match. It’s great when couples include some of their customs in their weddings. Besides remembering their roots, it gives them a story to tell that others cannot imitate.

Deanna: “I love the details of the reception – the fairy lights that draped across the beams, the rustic candy table and the overall styling. It made my heart sing when I saw it. The Scottish dancing was a highlight! It got everyone up and all our Australian guests were having such a blast.

“I handmade quite a few things. I made a large photo board myself that had all the guests’ photos on it with their designated table number. Being a photographer myself, I wanted to do something that represented that bit of me. All the place name cards were made out of burlap and leftover paper from the DIY invitations.

“I also made the large sign that hung at the front of the venue with the directions on it. I stained three large pieces of wood, painted the letters and glued them together. It hung perfectly under the big old wine barrel.”

Against All Odds

Cherryblocks Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A tad whimsical and surreal, these are daring bridal portraits. This couple embraced all the concepts and ideas that were thrown at them, resulting in a very colourful and fun set of photos. Seriously, we are flabbergasted by the talent and creativity seen in stylised photos from the Philippines. You’ve got to admire their energy.

We like the styling and mood of this set of photos. The location and checked tiles definitely play an important role in creating the right backdrop as well. Kres have recently expanded their services to include more than just makeup, and we thought this shoot was a good example of what they can deliver. They have also done quite a number of editorial photoshoots.

As lovers of art and beauty, it was not surprising at all that Analy and Jose chose to be wed at Antigua, Guatemala, a UNESCO world heritage site. The couple knew from the moment they got engaged that they wanted a small and intimate destination wedding.

Analy: “I fell in love with my shoes because they were simple and chic. I put on more traditional jewellery during the ceremony and kicked it up a notch with a bulkier and trendier necklace for the reception. My wonderful stylist braided my hair into a half up-do for the reception and added a gorgeous hairpiece that completely transformed my look and went amazingly well with my jewellery.”

“Jose and I chose to do a first look, and we saw each other before the wedding. Our chauffeur took us around the cobblestone streets of Antigua in a 1936 Chrysler convertible while playing Frank Sinatra. People on the street were applauding, taking pictures and congratulating us; complete strangers joined in our happiness and made that drive our fondest memory. It was just amazing.

“I’ve seen all kinds of themes and colour palettes in weddings but I wanted something stylish and timeless. Our main colour theme was black and ivory with hints of green that was brought in with the use of peacock feathers.

“My main focus was to highlight the beauty of our location, a museum and hotel that were once a monastery in the early 18th century. We used candles and simple flower arrangements to enhance the already gorgeous location.”

Tip from the bride: “I believe that trends pass and fashion always changes, but style remains forever.”

Cool Wedding Party

Crazy cool destination wedding in Bali. Aidan Dockery Wedding Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We extremely love how this couple had no printed wedding invites and wedding cake. The bride couldn’t recall what heels she wore, and she wasn’t concerned about the flowers and favours because someone else took care of them.

Looking at the pictures, you can see it turned out to be a totally rocking and cool wedding. In fact, we’re never seen a properly planned wedding that looked more fun than this one.

Barbara: “[We had] no concept at all, really. The idea was to keep it as fun and stress free as possible. No rules.

“It was great having all my friends and family from all over the world fly in for a week of fun. Seeing the 14 groomsmen with their horse heads on rounding up the guests. My husband’s hot pink suit, getting ready with my stunning bridesmaids, swimming in the pool in my wedding dress with my husband after the wedding, being with all my guests including my 70-year-old mother, the lighting of the wishing lanterns on the beach…”

Inimitable Style

We have seen creative people but Garovs and Ryan from Everywhere We Shoot are from a different realm altogether. Their style is really quite inimitable. Obviously this is not the kind of bridal portrait you see every day. We might even go further and say it’s never been seen before.

We were already very excited when we saw some of the designers’ work, and now to have some of the best in the creative industry come together to do Garovs and Ryan’s wedding… we can’t help but feel overwhelmed.

These photos were shot by MangoRed, in collaboration with some Filipino illustrators in Manila.

Brianna and Alexander definitely created the right atmosphere for a very fun wedding, complete with rainbow colours and picnic rugs all around in the wide open space. The couple and their wedding party actually decorated the venue and handmade almost everything. We love every detail, from the tops of their heads down to their shoes.

“There was a lot of love going round and I’m honoured to have been part of what was truly an amazing day. Thanks to the impeccable Ben Murphy for second shooting with me on the day as well.”

Photoshoot In Borneo

This couple flew all the way to Borneo from Singapore to do their bridal portraits. They really went all out and roughed it out – took long drives, climbed rocks and stood against the wind. There was just so much to explore in Borneo.

ZA Gallery: “The dairy farm in Kundasang was our first stop for the shoot. It was very windy that day, and it took them a lot of effort to climb that rock. As for us, our cameras were even shaking due to the strong winds.

“On the second day, we departed early so that we could reach Kudat early for the shoot. Google Map showed that it would take about one and a half hours to drive there. We expected it would be longer – two hours maybe. But it took us about four hours to reach there as the road was not in good condition!

“Nevertheless, we enjoyed shooting there. There weren’t many visitors when we were there, so we had the whole place to ourselves! Angie’s cheongsam suited the environment of the longhouse perfectly.

“After that, we made our way to the tip of Borneo. Thereafter, we had to make the long drive back to Kundasang.”
