A Glitzy Gold Wedding At City Harvest Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Catking photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

High ceilings and exposed brick walls were the perfect contrasting background to the beautiful metal accents and glamorous glitter and gold. This wedding was the perfect combination of rustic and glamorous, with a long table setting replete with industrial cans of wildflowers and glass bottles. We especially loved the mismatched bridesmaids outfits, all of which were glittery and metallic but in a variety of dress lengths and colours. Many thanks to Bliss & Glitz and Catking Photography for capturing these details.

An Enchanting Rustic Wedding At The National Arts School, Sydney

Photo by Lara Hotz Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s easy to get swept up in the hubbub of planning a wedding, so much so that most newlyweds forget it’s also a celebration of love and one giant party! Not many would’ve thought to get married at an arts school, but this bride and groom had the right idea – exchanging vows at the National Arts School in Sydney against a stunning colourful backdrop, followed by a dinner reception at an old gaol site. Graffiti walls, natural sunlight and aerial shots formed the perfect equation for their wedding photoshoot. Many thanks to Lara Hotz Photography for the gorgeous pictures.

Vanessa: “If there was an underlying theme to the wedding, it was to put on a good party, and a good party needs a centrally located venue, music, food and laughs. The Cell Block Theatre is an old gaol site with grand, high ceilings and sandstone walls so bright hanging festoon lights created the perfect ambience, while the length of the room meant long, shared tables, filled with big shared platters of food. It was all down to the food, the band and dancing: Adam and I met on the dance floor and our relationship blossomed over food, so these two elements were absolutely crucial to us.”

“As a fan of botanical prints, especially fruit and vegetable ones, we used a number of images of fruit and vegetables on our save the dates, invitations and menu/seat name cards. Quite a few people were confused as to why pumpkins or pineapples were used as a theme/motif. They were even more perplexed as to why we had mini toy animals placed at each person’s seat. But it was all for a bit of a giggle!”

Rustic Themed Wedding At Stones Of The Yarra Valley

Every time we look at photos from the Yarra Valley, our hearts skip a beat. The Stables at Stones look so amazing with its simple rustic setting. This couple didn’t have a bridal party, and honestly, no one says it’s a must. Why choose when you have a great bunch of close friends and they’re all among the selected few attending your wedding, right? Thanks, Jonathan Ong, for this stunning set of photos.

Hamish: “While our ‘first look’ was such a special and exciting moment for us both, there’s something about the chapel doors swinging open and the quartet beginning to play the bridal march that took my breath away. More than any other part of that day, that was the point at which all the preparation and planning felt complete, our nerves faded away, and we were able to embrace the moment. It was just perfect! Our talented friends gave hilarious and heartfelt speeches that brought the house down. I think the photos perfectly sum up how much fun and happiness there was.

“As we had many friends and family flying in from overseas, we structured our wedding around a long weekend of events, maximising the time we could spend with everyone. The Yarra Valley is one of our favourite destinations, and we knew from the moment we arrived that Stones was the perfect venue. We wanted the wedding itself to be relaxed and intimate, reflecting our love of our friends and family, food and wine, as well as each other.

“We held our reception in the Stables and kept our numbers fairly small as we wanted to give our guests an experience that rewarded the efforts they had gone to be there. And we never felt tied to tradition; we just structured the day as we wished: we shared a bed the night before, we had photos together before the ceremony, and we didn’t have a bridal party.”

A Whimsical Rustic Wedding

Photo by Marlon Capuyan Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

You can either complain about everything that went wrong at your wedding, or just enjoy it with your guests who are there to celebrate your love for each other. This bride chose the latter. Look at the smiles in these photos; Shena looked absolutely lovely and gorgeous! Thanks for these photos, Marlon Capuyan.

Shena: “Looking back on our wedding day, the most memorable moments were actually the ‘small’ and ‘in between’ moments. It’s true when they say that your wedding day goes by really fast; it was only during those moments that we were able to slow down and appreciate it, those short yet sweet moments where the two of us could be alone to talk and catch up with one another.

“Other moments that were memorable were seeing each other for the first time as I walked down the aisle, saying our wedding vows, being in the bridal car together for the first time after the wedding ceremony, our first dance, and, at the end of the day, going back to our villa as husband and wife for the first time.

“We wanted to have a rustic and elegant country themed wedding with a soft, muted and ethereal colour palette, with lots of surprising and thoughtful DIY details with an understated whimsy. It was bohemian in the sense that it was based on our personalities and the choices we made were quite different from the norm. It was modest, lighthearted, fun, unpretentious and ‘us’ in every way.”

A Fresh Perspective Of Enderong Resort, Janda Baik

While there is a certain assurance in using a photographer who has shot in your wedding venue before, there’s also unexpected beauty to be found when you hire someone who hasn’t. A new perspective is often surprising and refreshing to see. Harvard Wang is a photographer based in Melbourne. Even though he’s Malaysian, this is his first wedding shoot in the country.

A Rustic Wedding At The Old Courthouse, Kuching

This beautiful white colonial building, now converted into a fine restaurant and with a lovely garden outside, was perfect for this wedding. The couple added just enough detail to complement the existing architecture – sometimes simplicity is the key to such a beautiful venue. Thanks, Andy Phe, for this lovely set of photos.

Cheng Cheng: “It drizzled earlier in the morning which got us worried as our wedding ceremony was going to be held later that afternoon. It was a blessing that we got clear skies when the time came, and that all of our invited guests were able to attend and witness our marriage.

“Walking down the aisle with my father and that moment when my dad passed me over to Kim Yew was overwhelming and memorable. Our first dance was memorable too; it was a once in our lifetime experience. We made it a point to go for dance classes so that we could nail our first dance, and we did. Definitely an achievement we earned together.

Can you believe that all this bride did for her wedding was hire a trusted wedding planner? (She didn’t do much research online, not even on Pinterest!) The result: a rustic boho wedding filled with lovely blooms and endless details. Thanks, Bloc Memoire, for sending us this lovely set. It’s too gorgeous not to include in our magazine.

Tips from the bride: “Know what you want but be open to new ideas. Hire a great wedding planner and trust them to do their job. We used Weddings by Artika and she did an amazing job with bringing to life both our ideas and creating a very special day for us. I didn’t use Pinterest or read any blogs because I had a wonderful wedding planner who went beyond her duties and who had lots of great ideas.”

We love how, when Suzi shared with us the special moments from her wedding, we are reminded that oftentimes it is the things you don’t plan that actually turn out more meaningful. So take a deep breath, sit back and enjoy your wedding day, because it’s really supposed to be that simple! Thanks, Jane from hellojanelee, for sending over the story of this lovely couple.
