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.

Celebrating Their Original Wedding Date With a Simple Rustic Chic Vow Exchange At KLoé Hotel

By now, you would have heard of many cancelled weddings and postponed receptions. While disappointing, these newlyweds still wanted to honour the day they were originally going to become husband and wife. Their intended wedding date fell during Malaysia’s Movement Control Order, which meant large gatherings were not allowed but photoshoots with strict social distancing in place were good to go.

These pre-wedding shots were taken at the newly opened rustic chic boutique hotel, KLoé Hotel in downtown KL, and the couple also used the opportunity to exchange their personal vows. Love prevails! The beautiful space and lush wildflowers, together with the bride’s chic bridal jumpsuit, made for a beautifully understated yet glamorous colour palette. Capturing these intimate moments was Louis Gan of Louis Gan Photography – many thanks for these gorgeous shots!

We say, hats off to the couples who are not afraid of a little inconvenience when it comes to getting their dream bridal portraits. Our tropical climate can make shooting in places like Pantai Klebang and Jonker Walk in Melaka tricky, but the temporary discomfort is worth it for a lifetime of memories. Thank you, Jens KV Photography, for these spectacular shots!

This couple definitely didn’t let the heat and humidity deter them, and if there ever was a good time for PDA, that time is now! The bride-to-be looked fresh and gorgeous in her tulle baby blue gown, while her groom-to-be looked dapper and in great spirits. It’s fine projects and adventures like these that remind couples of happy days, shared challenges, and the strength of their union.
