Almost as if it were straight out of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, this beautiful wedding had one defining element: flowers and botanicals – everywhere! Orchids were a particular favourite, as it held significant meaning for the bridal couple, and they covered everything from the decorations, invitations, and favours to even the lace cape of the bride’s evening gown. We’re also loving the bride’s dress, which was custom made by Yefta Gunawan, one of Indonesia’s leading bridal designers.

The bride and groom exchanged their vows amidst a truly stunning décor of white rose petals and hanging roses, which created a ceiling over the intimate and serene space with its breathtaking cliff top view. Replicating this elegant décor for their reception, they opted for fresh flowers that adorned the tables as well as the ceiling, and fresh pink roses for the tea ceremony. Many thanks to Terralogical for capturing this absolutely gorgeous set of photos.

Even when you’re in your home country, you can have a destination wedding of sorts! This couple had their wedding ceremony in Jakarta Cathedral, then their dinner reception the next day at The Edge Villas Uluwatu, Bali.

Jakarta Cathedral, with its vaulted teakwood ceilings and sunlight streaming through long, narrow windows above the grand main altar, needed only minimal decorations. From the bride’s baby’s breath bouquet to the white-on-white floral pew hangers and textured white carpet, everything was kept simple. This allowed the grandeur of the venue to truly shine, lending an air of solemnity and awe to the proceedings.

Many thanks to Illuminen Photography for sharing these wonderful photos with us.

High ceilings and wooden decorative elements make for a perfect rustic vintage wedding, what more if some of the wooden details were actually crafted by the groom himself?

This couple chose to personalise their wedding in a very special way, and complementing their wooden décor was a gorgeous colour palette of dusty blue and soft pastel pink, all brought together with touches of gold.

A Multi-Cultural, Multi-Colour Peranakan Wedding

Andrew Yep Photographie. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A wedding is more than just a union of two people – it’s a union of families, cultures and communities. For this bride and groom, their wedding reflected their Baba Nyonya roots with each of their cultural ceremonies – an ‘akad nikah’ for her side of the family, and tea ceremony for his side of the family. A multi-cultural wedding also meant a beautiful combination of colours – from the thoughtful decorative pieces to that amazing ombre cake! Many thanks to Andrew Yep Photographie for capturing this gorgeous wedding full of joy and colour.

Aina: “We wanted our wedding to reflect both of our cultures, so we decided to pay homage to our roots with a colourful Baba Nyonya / Peranakan theme. Mark’s family is from Penang, while a part of my ancestral family is from Melaka. We went on numerous trips to Peranakan hotspots such as Penang and Malacca to find inspiration for food and décor, as well as to pick up special pieces for décor. We didn’t want a cookie-cutter wedding and focused on it being a fun and lively celebration with close family and friends. We opted for batik fans as our wedding favours since it was an outdoor event and they would serve their purpose; we found them during a trip to Jogjakarta!

“We had our ‘akad nikah’ in the morning at my house, where I wore my Nyonya ‘kebaya’ and my late grandmother’s ‘kain batik’ and antique jewellery pieces, while Mark wore a traditional ‘baju melayu’. After the solemnisation, we changed into our Chinese outfits and had a really fun Chinese tea ceremony, which was a first for my family. I wore a special royal blue ‘cheongsam’ while Mark wore a matching ‘samfu’. It was then followed by a garden reception at home, where we were serenaded by friends. The wedding party ended at the Smokehouse Lounge at Majestic Hotel to keep with the old-school theme.

An East-Meets-West Vineyard Wedding In France

Bluecicada Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Vineyards are the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, and we love how this couple infused their personality, story and heritage into their nuptials. Besides the subtle inclusion of the bride’s half-Indian heritage and the groom’s creative designs, they also included their friends and family, as well as utilised the romantic outdoor space to the fullest.

Keeping their décor minimal to enhance the French vineyard setting, they used lavender as part of the decorations and everything just came together beautifully. Many thanks to Et Voila Weddings for another beautiful wedding and Caroline Cuinet Wellings of BlueCicada Photography for this incredible set of photos. The bride was truly resplendent and the wedding looked every bit out of a fairytale.

Nina: “We had a clear vision of the atmosphere we wanted for the wedding: something relaxed but special as our friends and family would have travelled to be there. We were looking for somewhere with a wow factor but not a traditional French Chateaux as we wanted it outdoors to make the most of the beautiful Provençale countryside. The vine arch was a natural focal point for the ceremony and the courtyard was perfect for dinner as it was enclosed but outdoors, retaining a really intimate feel. As soon as we saw the venue, we knew it was perfect.

“I’m half-Indian and I wanted to incorporate some of the Indian and Hindu traditions into the wedding. My dress was the first one I tried on but I loved it as it was so different – it complemented my figure and it was made from crinkled silk chiffon, which gathered at the centre to create a short train – almost like a saree. I also wore Indian-style jewellery. My bridesmaids’ dresses felt slightly Indian-inspired as well, as they were bejewelled and the skirt was draped in the front – similar to my dress. The flowergirl dresses were from India, and they had bangles and bags from India to throw lavender from.

A Blush Pink Floral Wedding At Hilton Kuala Lumpur

We love how this bride chose to keep her colour palette white and elegant, letting the bold colours of the flowers take centrestage with the décor. Complementing this were the blush pink bridesmaids’ dresses and the natural, lush greenery, which served as the perfect backdrop to the exchange of the wedding vows. Pops of fuchsia and deep red from the flowers and the gilded candlesticks added the right touch of elegance and glamour to the intimate soiree. Many thanks to ZA Gallery for capturing these amazing shots.

Tiffany: “I woke up on our wedding day feeling overwhelmed with happiness and excitement. It felt so surreal after months of planning and anticipation; our day was finally here. My heart was filled with nervousness and bliss as I was counting down to marrying the man of my life. We decided to write each other love letters to be recorded in our videos that night, so that we can watch this and laugh about it years later!

“The most memorable moment of our big day was walking down the aisle. I still remember the rush of happy emotions that took over, washing away any trace of worry when I saw Joseph. He, too, looked nervous and excited as he saw me walk towards him. We were worried about things beyond our control such as the forecasted rain, but we cannot thank God enough for the perfect weather on that day. I even forgot to put my veil on but it didn’t matter anymore. We’re just happy that all our family and friends were able to witness our very special occasion.

A Sweet Pastel Outdoor Garden Wedding at Thistle Port Dickson

Outdoor weddings mean you’re at the mercy of unpredictable weather, and for this lucky couple, their wedding was blessed with last minute sunshine! They got to exchange their vows against the backdrop of a picturesque sunset by the beach, with the salty sea breeze and a beautiful flower arch. Pastel colours and florals added a sweet romantic touch to the décor, and we especially love the different bridesmaid dress styles.

May: “Every single thing was amazing and memorable! It was an outdoor wedding and forecasts from various sources indicated a thunderstorm for that day. The weather for the few days before the wedding was consistently thunderstorms. We were all prepared for the wet weather plan and I thought months of wedding preparations were going to be washed away by the rain.

“But on our wedding day, it drizzled a bit during the rehearsal that afternoon and then it stopped. We were all holding our breaths till the very last minute… and then a miracle happened! The sun came out from behind the dark clouds and the weather was perfect throughout the matrimonial ceremony and dinner. Both Gentry and I have been so blessed by God in many ways, including our wonderful friends and families who prayed for us and journeyed with us throughout our wedding. We are forever grateful!

“We wanted an outdoor wedding by the beach and our venue was perfect – a garden overlooking the Straits of Malacca. Our matrimonial ceremony was held during sunset, so we thought warm colours would be great. We love white and pastel colours so we chose white, gold, faded pink and faded grey as our colour palette. We had thank you cards with a heartfelt message from us to each guest who attended the wedding – we thought it would be a good and simple memento for our guests to keep.”

Tips from the bride: “Just relax and enjoy the biggest day of your life!”

An Old School Chinese Wedding Ceremony

Photo by Hellojanelee Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

How often do we get to see an old school Chinese wedding, with all the drama of full traditional bridal attire including the coronet? This couple embraced their roots and culture for their chip san leong, starting with the gatecrashing ceremony of the groom and his groomsmen to pick up the bride, and finishing with a tea ceremony. The result was not only a joyous union, but also colourful and bright photos reflective of the mood on the day – thanks to hellojanelee!

All of it was made complete by the radiant smiles of the happy couple and their guests. Thanks to hellojanelee for this beautiful set of photos!

We are in love with this elaborately decorated wedding that drew inspiration from the glamorous era of 1920s Old Shanghai styled by Wishing Tree. With its deep red hues, balanced by regal turquoise and green, textured patterns and lights, everything was brought together the way only a couple with a design and architectural background could. Even more impressive, they planned all this while in Melbourne, as they’re based there!

No detail was left out – from the table centerpieces to the photobooth wall, from the flowers to the favours. They even hired vendors and performers to add to the oriental experience. Many thanks to Peter Herman Photography for capturing the intricate details and breathtaking colours of this wedding!

Yi-Ann: “We decided on a traditional yet unconventional Chinese banquet reception based on an Old Shanghai theme. We didn’t want to overwhelm the reception with the colour red just because it was an oriental wedding, so we used a variety of red hues contrasted with turquoise and green, which worked beautifully with our theme. Seeing every aspect of the reception for the first time was so exciting, but what made it even more memorable was having our nearest and dearest share and celebrate our momentous day with us!

“Howard and I were very involved in every aspect of the planning and execution of both our Melbourne and Malaysian receptions. We wanted both receptions to reflect our personalities and attention to detail, especially with our background in architecture and design. We had a great understanding of each other’s roles when it came to the wedding; he was very supportive and allowed me to decide on the majority of the décor elements. He, on the other hand, designed all the necessary graphics – such as our invites, table numbers, descriptions for our traditional candy stations, and the graphics projected on the screens.

“Our wedding favours were customised to suit our theme, and looked great with the table settings. We had vibrant sandalwood hand fans engraved with our wedding hashtag, which was a big hit with the ladies! For the men we had chocolates by Grant Hyatt, each wrapped with a strip of oriental floral wrapping paper and sealed with our personalised wedding stickers.”

Tips from the bride: “Do find the time throughout your big day to take in all of the details and to really soak up every moment of joy and love!”
