    Edgy and Contemporary with Sleek Lines and Wildflowers

    Brides-to-be tend to find themselves in this common dilemma when planning their wedding: to keep things classic and risk veering on ‘boring’ and ‘predictable’, or spice things up with a contemporary look and risk having a look that dates? What’s chic and contemporary these days is a balance of the two, such as dried wildflowers set against sleek lines and modern tablescapes, warm wooden textures juxtaposed against steely cool structures, and a palette of earthy tones with subtle gilded touches. Above all, sustainability is important – most of the décor can be repurposed by the newlyweds for their new home. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for this impressive set…

    Amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, This Couple Chose To Tie the Knot At Home

    Bless this couple for their persistence in the face of global chaos! Their gorgeous wedding is a bright spot in so many ways, and it just goes to show that when it comes to weddings, true love is all that is needed.

    Love In The Time of Covid-19: Planning Your Bridal Portraits

    How is it that March 2020 has felt like all 12 months of 2019 put together? Things happen and life can fly out of our control sometimes, but that’s just how it is. Much like most wedding days, actually. The good news is Covid-19 doesn’t mean that life has to stop completely. You definitely have to relook how you should plan your wedding, but you can start scheduling those bridal portraits. Depending on the situation in your country, hopefully you will be able to shoot your portraits from June onwards. Just remember that you should still try to keep the number of people involved to a minimum, and only proceed…

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

    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…
