Bridal Portraits

Hot Air Balloons And A Helipad

Photo by Marlon Capuyan Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We don’t know about you but we have always found rooftops and helipads romantic. It is one of those places where we can hide away with our loved ones from the busyness of the city, and we like how the view, and perhaps the wind up there, give us hope for tomorrow. We love the colours of the hot air balloons here too! Though you can see a Malaysian flag, these gorgeous photos were actually taken in the Philippines by Marlon Capuyan.

The Stallions

Photography by thegaleria. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Qabil is one of Malaysia’s top sporting icons and widely considered to be the best equestrian in the country. These bridal portraits were photographed at just one location – the couple’s sprawling private estate in Selangor. Jeana’s dresses are extremely gorgeous, and Brian Ho really gives us a reason to fall in love with film photography again.

Vintage Train Photoshoot

Photography by Jessica of All Season – Photo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We are so in love with this vintage train photoshoot, the art direction and the styling. Jeska and Erwin came to Jessica of All Season with an open mind, and quickly accepted this idea without much hesitation. They look so natural we wouldn’t have guessed that Jeska was nervous. Erwin definitely had his way of lightening the mood with his jokes and making her feel at ease.

In Your Embrace

Photo by Joshua K of Inlight Photos. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is really nice how Joshua manages to capture emotions and warmth in his photos. It’s not easy, especially when couples are aware that they are being photographed. Of course it helps that May and Chee Fang are both pretty good-looking. That gold dress is an awesome surprise and goes unexpectedly well with the whole look.

A Date With Their Dogs At The Park

Marlon Capuyan Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

You don’t really need to cross the ocean, climb the highest mountains or put on a few-thousand-dollar gown to do your bridal portraits. Sometimes the most beautiful moments are those we have every day and they are worth capturing too. Dianne and Maynard did just that – a walk in the park with their dogs. Lying down on the grass and just having that great time together. Because many years from now, you’ll want to remember how it all started, why you love this person so dearly, and everything you treasured. Sometimes age steals that away from us. The Huskies and Shih Tzu are so adorable, we could look at these photos all day. Thanks, Marlon Capuyan, for once again making ordinary things look so beautiful.

Distance Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Michelle Pineda Photography. Styling by Tipping Point Collective. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Long distance relationships suck, but when they end in marriage, they create some of the most beautiful love stories. Maan and Rafael were in a long distance relationship for almost six years. He was working as an architect in Abu Dhabi while she was finishing up her studies to become a medical doctor in the Philippines. Tipping Point Collective created a vintage look to add more character, along with love letters and a DIY tin can telephone to depict the long distance romance. Michelle Pineda’s photos brighten up our day!

Gown And Saddle

Photography by Gallerie CK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Paul Kong of Gallerie CK recently photographed a couple at Bukit Timah Saddle Club. It is a beautiful place, and it’s nice to be quiet and get away from city life for a while. We cannot fathom how they got the horse to cooperate, but the shoot looks great.

Ingredients Of A Happy Marriage

The ingredients of a happy marriage: faith, love, laughter, and the sharing of each other’s dreams. Andri and Marcella know what they are talking about. This is a post-wedding shoot and we are really happy to see that after one year, they still look so in love with each other.

A successful marriage starts from the moment you leave the bed every morning. The extra time you have with each other instead of just grabbing your coffee and rushing out for work each day. We like the honesty of these photos; they make us burst out in laughter. Really adorable.

Red MINI

Iyao of Frame[S]tudio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Here are two of our favourite things put together, Coke and a MINI. Road trips are nice because they always remind us that we are on a journey. Like every bridal portrait or wedding, they are not the destination, merely part of a journey where two individuals celebrate their love for each other and pledge to finish the journey together. The photographer, Iyao, set the right mood for the shoot, and the floating alphabets are just adorable.

Just The Two Of Us

Photography by Wedoitforlove. www.theweddingnotebook.com

We have yet to find an answer as to why there are so many eccentric and colourful photoshoots in the Philippines, other than the country is filled with very happy and creative earthlings. We like both sets by Wedoitforlove, which make us really want to pack our bags and go on a road trip in that yellow kombi. The couple is also very well colour-coordinated and carefully styled, and they look outstanding despite the busy background.

Stephanie and Ronald did their bridal portraits in both Singapore and Bali. The Singapore one was more formal, and was done at the National Museum. We are especially impressed by Ronald’s kung fu pose in front of the Bruce Lee poster. The Bali set, on the other hand, was more casual and relaxed.

Andri Tei: “Ronald is my primary school friend. We thoroughly enjoyed both the photoshoots. The Bali trip was more of a holiday than a wedding photoshoot. It was definitely one of the most memorable photoshoots I’ve had thus far.”
