7 Stylish Fashion Ideas For Your Bridal Portraits

Your wedding is the perfect opportunity to showcase your style, from your choice of wedding dress right down to the décor. If veering off the beaten path for your wedding gown is too big of a leap, why not do something different with your bridal portraits instead? Perhaps this is the time to live your fashion editorial fantasies by infusing your photoshoot with some serious high fashion. Check out these brides who jumped at the chance:

Lace is a beautiful option for low-key bridal luxe, but wearing lace from top to toe could be a bit much. Break it up with a dramatic full-length skirt, and you’ve got yourself a dazzling two-piece that screams high fashion!

#02 Be The Glorious Lady In Red

No matter the backdrop, a beautiful deep red gown is both dramatic and breathtaking. It is no wonder that red is the colour of love – this rich hue is romantic, mysterious, glamorous and theatrical at the same time. There’s no better way to stand out.

#03 Cool In Shiny Metallics

Forget the usual whites and neutrals, how about a glossy white or even sleek gunmetal grey? Metallics add a layer of cool to everything, and will keep your nuptials classic yet super chic. There’s no better occasion to strut those metallics.

A Dreamy Blue Grey, Terra Cotta Infused Cliff-Top Styled Shoot in the Philippines

Photo by Helium Hearts. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Wow, the elements of this styled shoot truly blew us away! From the pebble beach and the crashing waves to the lush forests and dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean, there is no better backdrop than Mother Nature. Completing this look are the bride and groom’s outfits, including the bride’s long train and veil, which helped to add serenity and dreaminess to the overall effect. We love the chic use of the geometric arch, not to mention the terra cotta cutlery and crockery, and the blue grey touches for a pop of colour. Kudos to Cuckoo Cloud Concepts for making this happen, together with the beautiful florals by Vatel Manilla, and captured splendidly by Helium Hearts. What a great set of photos!

Marlon Capuyan of Helium Hearts: “What I love about styled shoots is the chance to create photos outside of the conventional wedding setting, experiment with different styles, and rediscover that photos are more than eye candy, they should also be able to tell a story and preserve the emotions of a joyous and magical moment in our lives.”

Modern and Sleek in New York City

Ah, the city that never sleeps. New York City is unparalleled when it comes to its dynamic streets, iconic architecture and bright lights. That this mermaid-inspired wedding gown by Wedding Crafters was able to stand out in all its glamorous beauty is a wonder indeed. Many thanks to AndroidsinBoots for these beautiful photos!

A Cosy And Elegant Wedding Inspired By Fall Colours At The RuMa Hotel and Residences

Interesting wedding ceremony venue in Kuala Lumpur – The RuMa Hotel and Residences. Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Intimate wedding celebrations can still be elegant and romantic. This cosy, modern space at The RuMa Hotel and Residences exudes warmth with its earthy tones, wooden textures and soft lighting, making it perfect for a party of 80. Instead of the usual banquet style reception, why not have a sit-down meal with a fully customisable menu, complete with a desserts table that can be created to match your theme colours.

Take your reception or ROM to the next level with a glorious view of the Petronas Twin Towers. Conceptualised and styled by The Wedding Notebook, this wedding brought out the woodsy elements with natural hues highlighted by moody fall colours. Dried flowers in neutral shades, provided by Merisik, were used in lieu of pampas and dried palm leaves, and matched with crossback chairs. There were no tablecloths, and only minimal stationery. Many thanks to Peter Herman Photography for capturing this beautiful set and décor!

Wishing Tree 20th Anniversary: 10 Most Iconic Wedding Styles

Founded over 20 years ago by Lily Chew, Wishing Tree has grown from being a small florist to a full service floral design studio. It has gained a faithful following of A-list clients over the years, including Dato’ Jared and Datin Dian, Mah Kok Wah and Angelyn Chong, and Eu-Jin Leow and Melissa Sin, to name just a few.

In conjunction with this milestone anniversary, we have selected 10 of our favourites from Wishing Tree’s extensive portfolio, and believe us when we say it was really hard to select just 10 stories to share here. Each of these wedding setups was nothing short of a masterpiece, and we love how they were able to show their versatility through a wide array of diverse styles. Led by Creative Director Adrian Poon, these stunning floral arrangements were trendy yet timeless, and complemented by exactly the right props and inventory to make their work that much more outstanding.

7 Picture Perfect Places For Snowy Bridal Portraits

What is it about snow that instantly paints a magic brush over everything? That romantic dusting of powder, the majestic and moody ice-topped mountains, the dreamy blanket of white over everything – it’s so beautiful, and an adventurous shift from our tropical weather of course! Sure, it might get a little cold, but what’s a couple of frozen minutes for photos that will last a lifetime, right? These following brides certainly were not afraid to travel to some far-flung places for that winter wonderland feel.

#01 Iceland

Story: Dramatic and Glamorous Bridal Portraits in Iceland by Acapella Photography

There’s something wonderfully exotic about Iceland, with its terrain that’s unlike anywhere else in the world. These portraits are such a breathtaking palette of blues that you almost wonder if it’s really Mother Nature at work. Mysterious and dramatic, Iceland is the perfect romantic backdrop against which to capture your love.

#02 Switzerland

Story: Lost In The Magic Of Snow by Axioo

Forget those sunny beaches, there’s nothing like these majestic mountain ranges to get you in the mood for love, especially when coupled with the magic of snow! The best thing about snowy backdrops – they make ideal all-white “canvases” that allow you to fully stand out.

#03 Niseko and Shirakawa-go, Japan

Story: Skiing Bridal Portraits in Niseko, Japan by Niseko Photography

You don’t have to go too far away from home. Japan is practically a hop and a skip away, and it’s even more exciting when it’s ski season. (Sneak in a vacation, perhaps?) The best thing about Japan is that you’re not limited to just Niseko, there are other parts of the mountains too, like Shirakawa-go.

Story: White On White In The Winter Wonderland Of Hallstatt Austria by Fixer Photography

Winter wonderlands sometimes also mean you’re beholden to unexpected storms. These newlyweds were greeted with a snowstorm but they still made it work, which resulted in some playful yet romantic bridal portraits. Hallstatt has become a little touristy over the years, which makes winter the best time to visit as the cold means there are fewer people.

#05 Oslo and Tromsø, Norway

Story: Dramatic Destination Bridal Portraits In Picturesque Norway by Sheerss Photography

Dramatic landscapes and picturesque scenery are found throughout Norway. Oslo, located in the southern part of Norway, and Tromsø, which is at the northern part, boast some of the most visually impressive coastal landscapes in the world, and Norway is also home to the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights.

#06 Queenstown, New Zealand

To some people, New Zealand must seem like the farthest corner of the world. To others, it is heaven on Earth if such a place indeed exists. From the snow-capped mountains to the lush meadows, the country’s majestic terrain is Mother Nature at its untouched finest. Undoubtedly the perfect backdrop for your bridal portraits, it’s no wonder so many couples choose New Zealand for their destination photoshoot.

Melbourne might not necessarily be known for its winter scenery, but visit at the right time of year, and you just might discover a snowy wonderland in the mountains. We love how this bride dramatised her bridal portraits by wearing a ballgown complete with a full skirt.

Top 12 Wedding Trends from Marriott International x WAF

Featuring many of the most sought after wedding professionals in Malaysia, Marriott International x WAF2019 was a delightful revelation of what we predict will be the wedding trends to look out for in 2020.

#01 Hanging Installations
From chandeliers and crystals to flowers and more, hanging installations, whether lush or minimalist, seem to be what it’s all about. The ‘Love Tunnel’ experience by Wishing Tree was mesmerising, proving that wedding décor is no longer one dimensional. The layering of mirrors and crystals left us breathless, and we can imagine this being an absolutely stunning entrance to your wedding space.

This piece by Elisa Florals would make an excellent backdrop for your VIP table, while this minimalist piece by The Next Big Thing and Wildflower is another good example.

#02 Gold and Bronze
Wishing Tree’s Gilded Affair section, complete with gold finishing and even a bronze mirror, looked really elegant. Gold sprayed leaves were everywhere, including in the Contemporary Chic section by WM Décor and the Destination Vogue section by Darling Florist & Events and Tie The Knot. Gold and bronze elements were definitely all over the cakes and desserts too.

#03 Mirrors and Reflective Surfaces
This one was a surprise. No matter the theme, WM Décor showed that mirror boxes at different heights with decal stickers can be quite fun. Even reflective materials like Perspec have found their way into this latest look, and we love Spring Cottage’s bold approach in covering the entire aisle for a very modern and chic effect. Zahuohang’s installation with a futuristic touch was definitely something you didn’t see often.

#04 Neon Lights

The Peak Xperience’s bold photobooth at the Eclectic Pop section was worth every Instagram post. The neon lights completed the look for the Speakeasy Bar, prepping the crowd for the perfect after party.

The centrepiece by Spring Cottage was modern and chic, while the soft fabrics and floral elements by WM Décor gave everything a romantic finish. While different looks can be created with different fonts and treatments, one thing is certain – expect lots of neon in the coming year!

#05 Bold Colours

Pink is definitely a thing. Mixed with deep blue, green and gold, it’s the perfect recipe for a statement piece. Embrace bold patterns and prints, such as those seen in Wishing Tree’s installation, and check out Marble & Co.’s dramatic pattern print background.

One of our favourites was the Speakeasy Bar done by The Peak Xperience. That hot pink carpet was unforgettable, and it just goes to show that you might not even need flowers. For the Eclectic Pop section, The Peak Xperience sprayed leaves in all kinds of gradients, which was too beautiful for words.

#06 Silent Disco

Someone once asked us why after parties were not so successful in Asia. We think it’s because in addition to booze, you need a good DJ, and some venues have curfews which make it tricky. Also, it can be hard to move your guests from one venue to another. Silent Discos are the answer to all of this, so cheers to successful wedding after parties in 2020!

#07 Mixed Floral

Using only one colour or one type of flower is something we don’t see from wedding decorators, so the challenge is getting the right combination of colours and flowers. Here are some good examples. Contrast seems to be a thing, even if it means injecting pops of colour into a monochromatic theme. Wildflowers, mixed arrangements and non-symmetrical stylings like this G.H. Mumm Champagne Bar by Wishing Tree are just gorgeous. WM Décor used pampas while Elisa Florals opted for dried flowers punctuated with pops of colour. Even when green leaves are used, different types of greenery are often used for different themes.

#08 Mixed Textures

Furniture comes in all kind of shapes, textures and fabrics. Don’t be afraid to mix them up, from metals and fabrics to glassware. It can get messy if you don’t know how to do it, but these decorators pulled it off flawlessly. There were so many interesting layers! This is what we call customised wedding décor.

#09 Personalised Bars

Be your own style. We love this G.H. Mumm Champagne Bar done up by Wishing Tree –– it spells luxe all over. Bring in your own mixologist, or some hotels might have one if you know your recipes. Cocktails were served by W Kuala Lumpur at the Speakeasy Bar and Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral at the Tropical Bar. Serve your favourite cocktails, customise your own, or simply find a drink that goes with your theme to enhance the atmosphere.

If you are in for the real thing only, serve single malt. Let your guests know that you pay attention to the details, right down to what they are drinking. And if you think bars are boring, think again!

#11 Gentlemen’s Sessions

If you think weddings are not for men, think again. At Marriott International x WAF2019, the grooms-to-be and their best men had an absolute blast mixing their own whisky blends and having their men-only sessions. Bachelor parties don’t have to be dodgy, give them a real drink and see if they don’t choose that instead!

#12 Sweet and Savoury

Cheese Bars, Tapas Bars and Dessert Tables all can be part of the décor. It is another way to complete your theme and keep your guests occupied. Considering how late dinners in Asia sometimes start, you just might be surprised by what a hit these additions can be. And remember, don’t under order.

Mysterious And Bohemian Sahara-Style Shoot In Sepang

Jessielyee Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

What a romantic and passionate shoot set against the dusty ruby shades of the “Sahara”. Believe it or not, this desert-esque location is actually in Sepang, Malaysia. We’re intrigued by this bold yet minimalist take on the traditional bohemian style, not to mention the raw magnetism of these images. Thanks for these amazing shots, Jessielyee. Photography!

The bride had her hair down, lustrous and sexy, without the typical up-dos or accessories. She didn’t need to play it sweet; her alluring personality and confidence were beautifully magnified, projected and captured in these stills. We also love the detailing, which accentuated her dramatic flair. Check out the beautiful floral ring she wore, as well as the boho elements such as macramé and rattan, all of which helped to create a mysterious, romantic feel.

Boho Chic With A Pop Of Orange At The Andaman Langkawi

Joshua Koh Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Facing the Andaman Sea is The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, Langkawi, home to one of the most beautiful natural private beaches on the island. Perfect for your destination wedding, The Andaman is also a resort that believes in sustainability and preserving the environment. You won’t find any single-use plastic straws (instead, wheat straws are preferred), and their food is sourced locally.

Textures such as dried leaves, wildflowers and pampas grass are one way to add a bohemian yet dreamy, romantic vibe to a beach wedding. We love the ornate circle arch framing the bride and groom against the muted neutral colours of the beach and sky, while the bright pops of orange proved a fabulous touch for a festive look. Many thanks to Tie The Knot and Darling Florist & Events Langkawi for styling this with us, and Joshua Koh Photography for the photos!
