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!

To have a truly blessed wedding day, a couple must start right at the beginning and seek only the things that matter. We see it here, in this couple’s tastefully and thoughtfully planned wedding that was held at the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, Singapore. With tall stained glass windows and white walled interiors, we couldn’t help but notice that when a venue is as rich and gorgeous as this, there is little need for further ornamentation. Thank you for these brilliant shots, Bloc Memoire Photography!

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.

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.
