    A Romantic Elopement Styled Shoot at The Datai Langkawi

    Malaysians are truly fortunate to have such an abundance of beautiful resorts and beaches on our doorstep. It might be a while before we can hold destination weddings again, but there’s nothing stopping you from saying “I do” by the beach, or against the backdrop of a lush rainforest. From the sun-soaked private beaches of Datai Bay to the lush gardens and rainforests surrounding The Datai Langkawi, could this be any more perfect for an intimate wedding or romantic elopement? Located at the north-western tip of Langkawi island, this exclusive resort has all the answers: a cosy, sunset ceremony on the beach, perhaps, or the magical deck overlooking the rainforest…

    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…

    Mysterious And Bohemian Sahara-Style Shoot In Sepang

    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!
