Photo by Ivan of Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Just because we can’t travel right now doesn’t mean that we can’t dream. Thanks to this set of bridal portraits from Ivan Mario of Axioo, we can’t stop thinking about Europe. From the snow-capped mountaintops of Switzerland to the traditionally romantic cobbled streets of Paris, these newlyweds had the most picture perfect backdrop against which to capture their love. That dramatic Italian architecture is sure to take your breath away!

Bridal Portraits Beneath A Nightsky Full of Stars at Kundasang, Sabah

Patrick Kok Moments. www.theweddingnotebook.com

These may well be the most spectacular bridal portraits we have ever seen. Fancy getting the Milky Way as the backdrop in your special album, and at Kundasang, Sabah! Thank you for these amazing captures, Patrick Kok Moments.

What a journey for this couple and their trusted photographer! They left Kota Kinabalu and made for Kundasang at night, hoping to see the Milky Way. Upon their arrival, they felt that the sky wasn’t what they had envisioned, so they decided to wait an hour, taking a nap in the car.

Sure enough, the clouds soon began to part and twinkling stars filled the sky. The photographer quickly set up his tripod, and the shoot began. There were even sparklers for props and wood for a small bonfire. By the time they finished at about 2am, it had been a glorious and memorable two hours in the great Kundasang open.

Spirited and Heartwarming Bridal Portraits in Charming Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Photo by Logika Bumi of Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We adore the way this precious album of bridal portraits captures the beautiful couple’s love and the majestic charm of Yogyakarta in Indonesia. Often called Jogja, the city is known for its traditional arts and cultural heritage. Besides making it onto UNESCO’s tentative list of World Heritage Sites, it is also, in this particular instance, the hometown of the groom’s family, which just makes these photos all the more special. Thank you for these brilliant shots, Terralogical!

A Tip of the Hat to a Couple’s Beautiful Dating History Through Bridal Portraits at Restoran Yong Len, TTDI

Kane.CY Photograph. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is incredibly special when couples cement the memories of a lifetime by shooting their bridal portraits at their favourite hangout. In this couple’s case, they got theirs done at Restoran Yong Len, where the bride’s parents run a hawker stall.

Having known each other since secondary school, the ‘kopitiam’ was always one of their favourite dining locations. Locals familiar with this particular jewel of a food hub will attest to how special it is. Not only does it serve amazing local cuisine, but for these two, it also holds an incredible bank of unforgettable memories from their courtship years.

We’re big fans of having your bridal portraits shot at your favourite hangout – where you grew up, perhaps, or where your best memories were created. A terrific photographer will delight in shooting you in a locale even as simple as this if it is meaningful. Thanks, Kane.CY Photography, for doing such a great job. It just proves once again that location doesn’t really matter if you have the right photographer.

Just take in the magnificent architecture of this open-air museum and heritage resort. Featuring 128 guest rooms and 63 elite casas, the artistry and romance of this venue deserves to be seen.

A Gorgeous Earth on Red Indian Wedding at the Dome Marquee, Puteh Subang

Vinoth Raj Pillai Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This wedding album is absolutely stunning and unforgettable! We love how tasteful and immaculate this gorgeous Indian wedding at the Dome Marquee in Puteh Subang, Malaysia, is, with its every detail encapsulating the crucial nuances of tradition yet with a modern flair. Thank you for these brilliant captures, Vinoth Raj Pillai!

Being similar in personality meant this couple easily decided on a theme that best represented them both. Minimalists in their lifestyle and being nature lovers, they picked earth elements and neutral tones as a general theme, which worked wonderfully with the venue. The big draw in having their wedding at the Dome Marquee, Puteh Subang, was its natural light, which filled the space for this daytime event.
