Traditional

A Romantic Neutral Palette Wedding

Photo by Wedoitforlove. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The San Juan Nepomuceno Parish Church has those old gorgeous tiles, high ceilings, long aisles and pew chairs; the bride couldn’t have worn anything better than a lace dress and long cathedral veil. We love the use of neutral colours and how they go well with almost any theme. It’s so romantic and elegant without being overpowering.

This wedding definitely had a very big wedding party and lots of DIY, including the bridal accessories, candy buffet and wedding favours. The bride’s mum even handmade the bridal bouquet! Abby and Paolo have been together for nine years, and this wedding showed how dearly loved they are by their friends and family. We could go on and on about all the pretty things, but we’ll let Wedoitforlove’s photos do the rest of the talking.

Classic Elegance

We are always captivated by how majestic churches in the Philippines are. Walking through those grand entrances and down the aisles must be every little girl’s dream.

When it was her turn, Larae looked effortlessly elegant in her Monique Lhuillier long trail gown and cathedral veil. The couple chose a season-less neutral palette, and we love how thoughtful they were to personalise gifts for each member of their bridal party, right down to the little ones.

We can imagine how cool it must have been for each of the guests to get a flipbook from the photobooth, and how amazing the after party was, where the older guests danced to the music of the band and the younger ones danced the night away to the music of the groom, DJ Monds. Thanks to Metrophoto for sending us this set of photos, and Derek Yee‘s video for giving us a complete picture of this beautiful wedding.

Larae: “We wanted a wedding with a scenic view. Pavillion Tent of Sofitel was perfect because it faces the Manila Bay. This reminded us of our wedding proposal, which was done on a cruise. We also chose a tent as it can be dressed up according to our personal taste and style, unlike ballrooms where you are stuck with the same look and feel.”

Tips from the bride: “Start preparing as early as possible. Less cramming means less stress as you near your wedding day. If you have the time, opt for DIY so it will be more meaningful and personal as it reflects the couple’s personality more. Pamper yourself weeks before to relax both mind and body, and focus on the true meaning of marriage, which is a lifetime commitment, not just on the wedding day itself.”

The Traditional Chinese Carriage

It is nice when couples these days want to incorporate some rituals and traditions into their wedding. Though the intention of most brides is to create a celebratory mood rather than adhere to superstitions, we believe it’s so much more enjoyable for friends, and it will also please the parents. Dennis Yap, once again, done a great job capturing the day in photos for us.

BabysBreath Décor Design: “Both Carmen and Jerry wanted something traditional with a fun and modern twist. Both the houses were decorated with lots of red lanterns on carved wooden stands and other decorations. Some Chinese offerings were placed on the bed in the newlyweds’ new home for good luck.

“Jerry and his entourage came carrying the Chinese bridal sedan chair and with a tray of good wishes for the couple’s happiness and prosperity all written in Chinese calligraphy. After the gate crashing ceremony, the bride was carried to the groom’s house in this traditional sedan chair. The groom then kicked the sedan chair to symbolise his having successfully wed his beautiful bride.

“This was followed by a tea ceremony, for which the bride changed into her Qun Kua. The newlyweds served Chinese tea with dates to older family members. The chairs used for the ceremony were in a gold colour as gold symbolises prosperity – in wealth and children. An intricate painting of peonies, bamboos and birds as the backdrop really set the right atmosphere and enhanced the ceremony.

“Chinese customs might sound complex but it is important to preserve these Chinese traditions for the generations to come. It also gives your parents the opportunity to be part of your wedding as they share with you the customs and traditions.”

The Hamptons-Themed Akad Nikah

Photography by Anna-Rina. www.theweddingnotebook.com

The Malay solemnisation ceremony, Akad Nikah, never ceases to impress us with how beautifully they are set up, especially those that are held at home. This ceremony was held at Dina’s parents’ house. As always, Anna-Rina was more than happy to take photos of this fun bunch. We’re just amazed at what Reka Teemor did with the seashells, which looked perfect with the combination of flowers.

Dina: “We both felt relieved and overjoyed when we were officially pronounced husband and wife; that moment when the entire crowd started clapping and cheering for us. We both love the beach and wanted a theme that was relaxed but elegant, and ‘the Hamptons’ best reflected our personalities.”

The Beauty Of Traditions

 b

Benny is from Chicago. He moved to Hong Kong a few years back for work, and that is where he met Marina.

We love this wedding to bits, especially how they included all the traditional customs yet kept it so much fun. It’s so beautiful to see all the bride’s family dress up in ‘Qun Kua’ and ‘Qipao’ including the grandma. They laughed, cried and went all out eccentric. They were just so authentic in front of the camera, which made these photos by Julian Wainwright extra amazing.

Making The World A Smaller Place

Stories by Integricity. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We really like this wedding because of the beautiful details. The bride took inspiration from her favourite Kate Spade bag, which is navy blue with little gold trimmings. And don’t get us started on how much we adore her ‘kebaya’ dress, the bridesmaids’ cheongsams, and how they incorporated the brocade lace pattern from the cheongsam into their wedding invitations and printed goods. We love how it all worked out. Thanks to Stories by Integricity for sharing this story.

Stories by Integricity. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Stories by Integricity. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Hui Yoong: “My attire for the church ceremony was an ivory white lace wedding kebaya with a soft gold songket skirt woven on a grey background. My bridesmaids had on navy blue Shanghainese-styled cheongsams with gold trimming and gold peep toe shoes. Each wore a gold Kate Spade bangle that was overlaid with a navy blue strip and ivory white polka dots, something I chanced upon overseas.

“I used the same fabric as my wedding ‘kebaya’ skirt for elements in everyone’s outfits, so they would all share a common bit: beaded, leaf-shaped gold fabric for the bridesmaids’ hair pieces, suit jacket handkerchiefs for the groom and his men, the waist sash sewn onto the flower girls’ dresses, and the ‘palu’ (scarf) that went with the page boys’ Indian ‘kurta’ outfits.

“All the lace and fabric for my wedding ‘kebaya’ and the girls’ cheongsams were purchased in Jakarta. The selection of materials there is amazing, and the workmanship for the sewing and beading of my dress was done spectacularly at a fraction of the cost I would have paid to have it done in KL.

“The cheongsams were made locally in KL by a 71-year-old lady in Razak Mansions, Sungei Besi. She made the mandarin buttons herself, and started out in her trade in Petaling Street when she was 17!

“The church was our choice, the dinner reception venue was really our only option given our capacity and dates – book as early as you can, is my advice! The cathedral was something special – it is a simple but beautiful structure that makes you stop and think for a while about its history, what it represents, and how you should conduct your life after you step out through the doors.

“The greatest thing about our wedding was having all our friends and family from all over the place in one room. Seeing them making friends with each other and keeping in touch even after the wedding, we love that all our worlds collide and are getting even smaller!”

Stories by Integricity. www.theweddingnotebook.com

One of the most meaningful pieces of advice from the bride: “Recognise that it is his wedding too, and to a certain extent, your parents’. Both Ash and I learnt a lot about each other, for example, he could not care less if there were no flowers at all at the wedding, whereas I could not care less whether or not there was a cool wedding car. You have to realise that everyone has different expectations and preferences, and you can’t please everyone, but you also need to decide which things are worth fighting for.

“People won’t remember the flowers and the décor years down the road, but they remember whether the food was bad, whether they had a good time, and how much they laughed. Try to understand why your parents request particular ceremonies and that certain guests be present – when we sat down and heard what they had to say and why, we realised that we actually agreed on the importance of certain cultural aspects, and it added to the significance of the day!

“Obviously there will be things everyone may not agree on as well – like me wanting black tablecloths which my Chinese mother had some reservations about – so there’s a lot of stakeholder management involved, and a lot of redirecting everyone’s focus on the more critical tasks, like getting the table arrangements sorted!”

Wedding Ceremony At Tirtha Uluwatu

Most of you will recognise this iconic venue – Tirtha Uluwatu. Is it the structure that looks like a floating pavilion, the pathway across the pool, or the vast horizon of the ocean as a backdrop? Thanks to EverMotion Photography for sharing with us this wedding. This place always leaves us in awe, which is what the architect intended for it to do and be – a dream wedding venue. This couple kept it simple with white orchid arrangements, directing all attention to the gorgeous bride.

Rustic Destination Wedding At Khayangan Estate Bali

Destination wedding in Bali. Photography by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There is almost no better place to hold a wedding in Bali than in the last retreat of an emperor, the Khayangan Estate. Personally, we love the bridesmaids in green dresses running the gatecrashing ceremony against that exotic backdrop, not to mention the tea ceremony. Totally photo-worthy.

This was indeed a celebration of love. The groom designed the wedding bands and had them custom-made in Singapore, while the bride made the DIY wedding invitations and tinned pastilles favours.

Jasmine: “It felt great seeing our family and friends who flew in from around the world to Bali. As well as the amazing view and intimate setting of having a dinner reception under a marquee in the garden with an eight-piece Cuban band.

“We wanted a theme that was fresh and vibrant with a rustic touch. The colours we used to style the wedding were quite eclectic but nature-inspired, such as grass green for the bridesmaids’ dresses and sky blue for the groomsmen’s shirts.

“I had the table centrepieces made with all local flowers, moss and pine cones. We used dried grape vines from the north of Bali for our wedding arch, with clusters of pale pink, green and beige flowers of different textures to blend everything together elegantly. We strung jasmine garlands from the trees around the estate, which looked charming and also made the whole estate wonderful.”

Tips from the bride: “Do as much research as you can for destination weddings. Be careful not to hire based on online portfolios only, as you must be sure that the service matches the quality of the product. Make sure the wedding planner you hire understands you, and can creatively turn your ideas into the real day within your budget! Be firm about your budget, and make decisions earlier rather than closer to the date. This will save you money, as you have the time to find more vendors and negotiate.

“If you’re unhappy at any stage during your wedding planning process, don’t be afraid to make the changes necessary to keep things running smoothly. We had to change our wedding planner three months before our wedding due to poor follow-up and nothing being done. It caused lots of stress, but as soon as we found another planner who was the right one, everything was brilliant and it became fun. Which is how it should be!”

A Wedding With A Hint Of Scottish Influence

Imagine an all-white rustic country wedding with a hint of Scottish influence. Romantic and fun, this is what you get from a beautiful Italian-Scottish match. It’s great when couples include some of their customs in their weddings. Besides remembering their roots, it gives them a story to tell that others cannot imitate.

Deanna: “I love the details of the reception – the fairy lights that draped across the beams, the rustic candy table and the overall styling. It made my heart sing when I saw it. The Scottish dancing was a highlight! It got everyone up and all our Australian guests were having such a blast.

“I handmade quite a few things. I made a large photo board myself that had all the guests’ photos on it with their designated table number. Being a photographer myself, I wanted to do something that represented that bit of me. All the place name cards were made out of burlap and leftover paper from the DIY invitations.

“I also made the large sign that hung at the front of the venue with the directions on it. I stained three large pieces of wood, painted the letters and glued them together. It hung perfectly under the big old wine barrel.”

Goat Farm Oriental Wedding

Interesting wedding venue in Singapore. Photography by One Eye Click. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We never imagined there were goat farms in Singapore, let alone anyone actually having a wedding at one. But we’re so glad that Stephanie and KC did, because they’ve opened up so many possibilities for wedding venues. The setup looks amazing, and we wish we could have been there to witness this.

Terry from One Eye Click: “For a girl who has spent most of her life on a goat farm, rearing and milking them, it must have been a dream come true for her to get married on the goat farm she grew up in.

“We were very honoured to be able to capture the wedding of Stephanie and KC. The first one we’ve ever done that was held on a farm, and the only goat farm in Singapore at that.

“Stephanie is the only daughter of the owner of the Hay Dairies group, and has handled goats all her life! Many would think that the children of such an organisation wouldn’t be so hands-on, but we were impressed to find out that Stephanie has been doing this for as long as she can remember.

“We got a closer look at the farm while doing a casual shoot with the couple before the reception began –and it was so much fun. The goats are so adorable!

“The reception was held on the grounds of the farm. This was not the first time that Stephanie had planned a party on the farm, but this one was special. A large tent was set up on the premises and done up really nicely according to the theme – oriental. Guests came dressed like they were from Shanghai Tang. It was a beautiful evening.”

Vera: “Basically the theme was cosy and very indie-style. Everything was planned with budget restrictions – DIY décor done by family members and invitation cards designed by Sanjay, A4J’s vocalist. The best thing was we did not have to pay for the venue. It was supposed to be a garden wedding but due to bad weather, we decided to move it indoors.

“The most memorable moment was when Bryan picked up an instrument that he once loved playing but now hates very much, the violin. It took some practice before he could play me a simple song. Another was when the groom and all his groomsmen played those traditional Chinese games before entering the bride’s house. It was fun. Everyone was very cooperative and indeed a good sport.”
