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.

An Enchanted Evening At Villa Karang Putih In Bali

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

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. Many thanks to Iluminen Photography for this amazing set of wedding photos!

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.

A Union Of Two Cultures At Le Meridian Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

For Matthew and Yasuho, tying the knot after being together for almost a decade was a momentous and meaningful celebration indeed. The solemnisation ceremony was a classic affair, held in Le Meridian’s rooftop glasshouse. The abundance of natural light made the colour palette of navy and white really stand out in the photos and video.

To highlight the union of their different cultures, Yasuho wore a ‘furisode’, a type of kimono only single women are allowed to wear, complete with a stunning floral headpiece of white hydrangeas and baby’s breath. We absolutely love the whole look! For her walk in, she chose to wear a ‘cheongsam’ to represent her husband’s culture and heritage, as well as to symbolise her merging into his family. She also hand-folded hundreds of ‘orizuru’ (paper cranes) for each guest as part of the wedding favours!

An Old School Chinese Gate-Crashing Ceremony

Photo by Wefreeze Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Most Chinese wedding customs have been modernised but some traditions still remain, such as the tea ceremony and the gate-crashing ceremony, where the groom picks up the bride. These are, without a doubt, the most sentimental and joyous aspects of the whole day. The gatecrashing ceremony fills the house with a lot of laughter as both sides of the family get acquainted with one another through ice-breaker games; while the tea ceremony is a traditional and sweet way of introducing the new family member to each side.

Here, we love how Rachel was resplendent in her ‘kua’ and how charming Chris looked in his traditional Chinese outfit, plus that beautiful red flower wall. Many thanks to WeFreeze Photography for capturing the joy of such a wonderful day, perfectly complemented by the beautiful stylings of Rachel’s own team, Pathway Events & Design. Do check out their elegant blue and gold wedding reception too; we promise you it is Pinterest-worthy.

A Gilded Rustic DIY Wedding At Luther Centre Church, Petaling Jaya

Nick Lim Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The simple gold and white colour palette gave the bride and groom plenty of room to play with textures and other decorative elements. This included burlap, tassels, shiny satin and wooden accents, interspersed with baby’s breath and lush green florals – all together, it was a cosy, simple yet elegant affair.

The couple left no stone unturned when it came to keeping their guests entertained – a space to take beautiful photos, an ice cream cart (that proved to be a real hit!) and an ingenious guestbook alternative: writing their well wishes on wooden blocks! We especially love the subtle texture of the pearly lace on the bride’s gown, which perfectly complemented her bridesmaids’ asymmetrical white and gold satin dresses. Many thanks to Nick Lim Photography for capturing the sweet details and magical moments of this wedding!

A Traditional Chinese Gate-Crashing And Tea Ceremony In Red

Photo by Wefreeze Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This couple is proof that tradition does not have to mean boring and old-fashioned at all. Done right, it can look vibrant and lively, and be a meaningful reminder of our roots and heritage. Li Jun and Erwin went all out, with the bride in full traditional bridal regalia: a resplendent “Qua”, the traditional Chinese wedding costume, complete with a gold headdress, lacy red veil and embroidered shoes. Her entourage of “Chi Mui” matched her in striking red cheongsams, while the groom himself showed up in a mandarin-collared suit.

The gate-crashing ceremony created a lively atmosphere of joy and laughter, and really set the tone for the tea ceremony that followed. To cap things off, the bridal portraits with the whole team, taken outdoors in the bright sunlight and among shady trees, really showcased the camaraderie and happiness of the occasion. Many thanks to WeFreeze Photography for capturing and sharing this joyous set of photos with us.

A Timeless Burgundy Wedding At St Andrew’s Church, KL

Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Keeping things classic with a beautifully modern colour palette of deep burgundy, red and blue, this bride and groom made every part of the flowers, décor and bridal party a reflection of who they were. The dark shades of burgundy in the bridal bouquet perfectly contrasted with the light pops of pink in the décor, and the bride looked absolutely resplendent in her bridal gown, especially with the decadent lace sleeves. It was clear there was so much love and joy on this special day – between the newlyweds and from their guests as well. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing this gorgeous set of photos.

Jo Ni and Tsen: “The most memorable moment of our big day was when we exchanged vows before God, family members and friends during the morning solemisation in church. That was the most intimate and sacred part of the whole wedding.”

Tsen: “Of course, seeing Jo Ni, who looked as stunning as ever, walking down the aisle towards me was a moment I’ll never forget. I was overwhelmed with emotion as I understood I was about to marry the woman I love and spend the rest of my life with her.”

Jo Ni: “For me, it was when I was walking down the aisle toward Tsen while reminiscing the years I’ve spent with my father, who was walking next to me. I felt assured knowing that I was walking towards my future husband who will love me as much as my father does.”

A Glamorous Blush Pink And Gold Wedding At Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur

Pair draped linen and soft twinkling lights with gold sparkles and lots of flowers, and you’ve got yourself a classically perfect wedding. From the sparkly bridesmaids’ dresses to the blush pink accents in the reception’s tablescape, décor and flowers, everything came together so beautifully, and we especially love the ceiling of flowers and the floral arch. Many thanks to Adam Ong Photography for capturing this glamorous wedding party – planned by MY Wedding Planner and put together by Wishing Tree.

Michelle: “I remember walking down the aisle and looking towards the end and being able to only see Hann. As clichéd as it may sound, a relaxed feeling came over me as his gaze warmed and calmed my soul.

“What’s more fun and memorable than a giant get-together with friends and family? We had to figure out how to make a party work for 820 people, so we agreed to throw an after party in the function hall next to our reception ballroom. Everyone, both young and old, were up on their feet and having a ball dancing the night away.

“I knew I wanted a romantic and beautifully lit reception setting, draped in linen and accented with soft lighting for a dreamy and ethereal feel, as well as a colour palette and flowers that complemented the beauty of the ballroom. It’s easy to get carried away but that night when I entered the ballroom, I fell in love with everything I saw and it felt great to see the end result. Our colour scheme of blush pink, white and gold featured in all aspects of our wedding day, from our invitations to the bridesmaids’ dresses and the floral decorations. We also brought in gold chairs to fit the grand space.”
