A Traditional Yet Glamorous Blush Pink Wedding in Sarawak

Photo by Bespoke Photographics. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s not often that we get to feature an Iban wedding, and this one was beautifully put together, from the cosy and intimate celebrations with close friends and family to the open reception that included everyone in Kapit. What’s even more amazing is that a clear theme was maintained throughout – the blush, grey and light gold palette tastefully brought together with textures such as drapery, florals and other traditional elements. Many thanks to Andy Phe of Bespoke Photographics and Melia Linggi of the Tun Jugah Foundation for all the important information on Iban weddings and customs.

Amanda: “The theme for our church blessing was ‘Rustic Garden’. Our altar stage décor had two-toned drapery, and we used fresh flowers in pink, white, pale yellow and green. Jonathan wore a navy blue suit paired with a pineapple-printed dark blue bow tie to add a bit of fun, and I wore a vintage off-shoulder trumpet dress in Chantilly lace from ThatWhiteDress and a Swarovski-dotted veil from Designer Bridal Room rimmed with a bunch of fresh baby’s breath in my hair.

Photo by Yung Yaw and Manoj of Munkeat Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We adore the old fashioned Penang Nyonya elements in this exquisite wedding, which took place at Seven Terraces in Georgetown, Penang. The cosy venue featured charming heritage tones as the couple complemented the existing décor with modern touches – a sassy black lace ‘qipao’ to match the groom’s necktie of black and mahogany stripes, as well as a pale pink bouquet. Thanks for these superb shots, Yung Yaw and Manoj of Mun Keat Studio!

A Vintage, Chic and Intimate Tea Ceremony in Kuala Lumpur

Photo by MJK Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The tea ceremony is often quite emotional and sentimental, celebrating the union of two people and two families becoming one. What’s lovely about this intimate ceremony is that it also makes for beautiful photos. These newlyweds chose hues of blue to contrast the traditional red tones, and included vintage elements such as a Volkswagen Beetle wedding car. And after all the fun and games were done, there was even a Malaysian style breakfast spread – nasi lemak cups, fresh fruit platters and mee hoon! Many thanks to MJK Photography for capturing these happy moments.

Photo by Andrew Yep Photographie. www.theweddingnotebook.com

More often than not, what matters to a couple will naturally be reflected in their wedding. For Kee Hong and Louis, who met in England and celebrated their engagement in romantic Paris, honouring family traditions and their heritage was at the heart of their wedding, which was held at the Blue Mansion in Penang.

Fusing auspicious red with blue, beige and cream, the couple created a wedding palette that was loud in its declaration of prosperity and tradition, yet modern and easy on the eyes. Many thanks to Andrew Yep Photographie for this smashing album!

Classic Oriental Wedding At Glasshouse At Seputeh

Photo by Funkydali. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is amazing how themes can totally transform a wedding venue. Glasshouse@Seputeh Kuala Lumpur has scored major points with event hosts, and it’s easy to see why. When it comes to weddings, this is a great space, especially for couples who have a very clear idea of their theme.

We were mesmerised by the Shanghai-esque flavour of this wedding. The classy deep red of the handsome couple’s ‘qipao’ and shirt, drapes, lanterns and oriental wares all made for a stunning traditional Chinese setting. As the bride shared, “The most memorable moments were spending time with our guests and seeing all our plans come to fruition.” Good job, Spring Cottage, and fantastic shots, Funkydali!

Tips from the bride: “Detailed planning beforehand will allow you to relax and enjoy yourself on the big day!”

Botanicals, Blush And Dusty Blue At Nosh, Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Guided by their vintage botanical theme of neutral hues, greenery, and a touch of dusty blue and gold, Charis and Joshua put together a DIY wedding at the church where they grew up – Church of the Good Shepherd. It was indeed a labour of love for the couple and their friends, as they created the calligraphy musical backdrop, signs and wedding invitations. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for these precious memories!

Weddings are a celebration of a couple’s union, but they are also in large part about the people who have been a part of that journey. We are always glad to see couples search for unique ways to appreciate their loved ones.

Seeing Red At A Garden Wedding Held At Beas River Country Club, Hong Kong

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A compatible couple is often evidenced by the ideals and thoughtfulness they put into their wedding. Since En Li and Andy were going to have a conventional church-and-hotel wedding in Kuala Lumpur later on, they opted for an outdoor winter ceremony in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong for something different.

Held at the exclusive Beas River Country Club, the newlyweds’ thoughtfulness came through in the form of heatpacks in personalised pouches as wedding favours, so guests could stay warm in the chilly, but very lovely, open. Amid the tastefully selected décor in hues of Marsala red, family and friends enjoyed the posh venue and rejoiced in their union. And MunKeat Photography was there to capture all the beauty!

A Classic Contemporary Reception At The Clifford Pier, Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Jin and Simon’s wedding celebration was a feast for the eyes indeed. The newlyweds are designers (architect and graphic designer respectively) and this was reflected not only in their choice of venues, but also in the theme of their wedding, from their wedding outfits right down to the stationery. Thanks, Bloc Memoire Photography, for capturing such a dreamy set of photos.

One of Jin’s favourite moments of the day was the time that she had with her parents as they veiled her before Simon arrived. That was when she realised that it was time for her to detach from them and start a new life with Simon. Simon also picked up Jin in the morning and drove her to the Christ Methodist Church himself, which gave them the opportunity to savour the moment, just the two of them, before the hustle and bustle of the day really began.

There’s beauty to be found in the simplicity of a classic church wedding. This couple’s nuptials were a mix of cultures and traditions, incorporating a church wedding, a Chinese tea ceremony and a modern reception. We especially love the romantic garden shots from the reception, featuring fairy lights, geometric frames, lush greenery and that perfect sunset lighting.

An Intimate Autumn Reception At Tamarind Hill Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Lydia and Chad-son’s wedding reception is a great example of how the right venue can help couples to cut down on the cost of wedding décor. Tamarind Hill Singapore turned out to be the perfect choice for their romantic autumn theme, with the elegant black and white colonial setting and lush greenery fitting the look to a T.

Another plus point of the venue? It was a great spot for some pretty portraits before the reception started, and it also allowed the newlyweds to have a warm and intimate reception where they got to spend quality time with the people they care about. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for capturing this gorgeous set of photos.

Geometric Shapes Met Vintage Glam For This Wedding At Glasshouse At Seputeh

Photo by Anna Rina. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This wedding was the perfect mix of simple and grand, old and new, vintage and glamour. The couple even had the cutest hashtag to go with it – #soyawedscincau! From the bride’s wedding dress, which looked simple from the front but was dramatic and breathtaking from the back, to the reception, just about everything was truly a sight to behold.

The colour theme of maroon certainly set the tone, making the celebration romantic, mysterious and dreamy all at the same time, and we love that ingenious table arrangement idea! Many thanks to Anna-Rina Photography for capturing (and sharing) such a lovely set of photos.
