Elegant Shanghainese Bridal Portraits Taken at PS150

Photo by H+ Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Having your bridal portraits look like movie stills from the golden age of Hong Kong cinema is such an elegant idea. When it comes to creating a classic Shanghai theme, the only thing we like more than Hong Kong star Wong Kar-Wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love’ is a spunky couple bold enough to pull it off. Suanne and Matthew rocked their Shanghainese set, shot in the quaint little bar PS150 in Kuala Lumpur’s Petaling Street. Thanks for these stunning shots, Gim Hong of H+ Studio!

The bar was the perfect venue, thanks to its unfinished brick walls, furniture, fittings, décor and glassware. There was no need for props; all the couple had to do was enjoy themselves and trust their photographer to do his magic. Might we add that we adore her qi pao and his casual unbuttoned shirt-and-coat look! Kudos to the team for a job well done.

Quirky and Unconventional Bridal Portraits Taken on Bintan Island, Indonesia

Photo by Terralogical. www.theweddingnotebook.com

These are some pretty big, albeit unorthodox, bridal portraits, we have to say! And frankly we did not expect any less from two visual communication designers who are crazy in love and about to tie the knot.

From perspective distortions to quirky art frames, these lovebirds wanted to defy the norms of bridal portraits, and that they did. It wasn’t all peculiar oddities (even though each photo looked like an art piece), the couple also took some conventional shots as backup, which were sweet and romantic – we love the ones of them by the beach and in the water, too! Many thanks to Govinda Rumi of Terralogical for this absolutely fascinating set of portraits.

Indie Portraits With A Playful Twist at The Great Madras Hotel Singapore

Photo by Bloc Memoire Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Hands down the best indie game face we’ve seen in a pre-wedding album, this was a breath of fresh air indeed, and we’ll tell you why. Shot at the unconventional The Great Madras Hotel Singapore, the photos certainly reflected the couple’s desire to create something indie and playful, in a flavour that was truly their own. They were not afraid to challenge the norm, with their funky outfits and zero public displays of affection. Instead, they went for a somewhat “disconnected” feel, aiming for “nothing touchy, yet being emotionally connected”. “That,” said Bloc Memoire Photography, “was honesty to the core.”

Conceptual Bridal Portraits: The Pilot And The Tailor

Photo by Filming Art Cinematography. tp://www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes you simply can’t put into words how much your love story takes your breath away, so these newlyweds took their bridal portraits and had them made into a movie. Using different photographs, this combination of cinematography and photography (adorably called “cinephotography”) took storytelling and bridal portraits to an inimitable space. The level of detail applied to the styling and costumes perfectly complemented the love these newlyweds have for each other.

Watch: “The Pilot & The Tailor”, starring Jocelyn and Louis. By Filming Art Cinematography.

Making A Splash With Underwater Bridal Portraits

Photo by Chester Kher Creations. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There are many ways for a couple to make a splash — this couple did it gorgeously, and literally, with an underwater shoot. We love the pops of colour, and especially how the bride’s red gown swirled like a mermaid’s tail in the water. We hope everything goes swimmingly well for this lovely couple! Many thanks to Chester Kher Creations for this.

Charley: “We just wanted to try something fresh, that was not too clichéd, and that did not require too much posing. We went ahead with this underwater idea without knowing what to expect. It was a challenging yet fulfilling experience!”

Glam Meets Grunge In This Gritty, Steamy Bridal Photoshoot

Photo by 50nfifty. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Gold sequins and black leather dance in a dingy corridor lit by green tinged fluorescent tubes. She is a gilded diva, he is a bad boy and rocker, and right here, in the grittiness of it all, they have eyes only for each other. Stylistically unconventional, this is a couple who is not afraid to live life with passion and verve. A huge shout out to 50nfifty Productions for sending along such a unique set of photos!

A Classic Hollywood Romance

Photo by Euhau Leong/LOORK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Much like the happily-ever-afters of Hollywood films, this set of bridal portraits perfectly encapsulates the newlyweds’ mutual love for films and all things timeless. After all, a classic is a beauty that withstands the weather of time. With a dramatic red lip for the bride and dapper tailored suits for the groom, they were indeed a sight to behold, with no detail spared in their perfect homage to the golden age of Hollywood. Set in New Zealand with all its untouched beauty, we love the fashion choices (pearls and lace), floral prints and headgear. Many thanks to Euhau Leong of LOORK for capturing these amazing bridal portraits, and to Rong and Sky of TwoPeople Studio for such an inspiring concept.

A Lover, Not a Fighter

Sanit Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Fans of the Ip Man movie series, which tells the story of the legendary Wing Chun martial arts master, would be able to recognise this groom’s billowing robes. While in the movies Ip Man’s story focussed more on his martial arts and less on his relationship with his wife, it was still deeply romantic, albeit subtly.

In these bridal portraits, Sanit Portfolio has captured the love and romance between the groom and his bride, dressed in a beautiful cheongsam, in the style of the Ip Man movies. Set against the backdrop of vintage shophouses, neon lights and understated glamour, the photos are dramatic and classically beautiful.

Two people who come together in a marital union often bring their own stories to the relationship, as they balance each other out in personality, interests and choices. Together, they’re a force to be reckoned with!

We love this truly creative stop motion video that Funkydali has put together for Halina and Amir, which showcases their personalities against the gorgeous colonial backdrop of Kuala Lumpur and the dreamy landscape off the coast. Complemented by the bride’s impeccable taste, these bridal portraits and engagement video perfectly tell their love story.

Whimsical Love, Quirky Romance

The Peeping Thom Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Partners in life and work, this bride and groom infuse their own whimsical brand of creativity into every aspect of their lives. As co-founders of a creative agency, they are perfectly compatible in their strengths and personalities, and are truly two halves of a perfect whole.

As animal lovers with two dogs and two cats, even their bridal portraits had animal elements in it, from their geometric animal masks to their three-year-old Dachshund, Duncan, who made a cameo appearance!

Many thanks to Thomas Ang of The Peeping Thom for capturing this quirky, Wes Anderson-inspired set of bridal portraits.

Following an elaborate planned proposal and the epic lengths the groom had to go through to design the ring, it was only normal that this beautiful couple would inject their own personality (and their beloved pets!) into their story. And what better way to tell their story than with their bridal portraits?

For their low-key and relaxed shoot, Sarah and Alwin had their pet snake (Basil), rats (Cinnamon and Latte) and miniature schnauzer (Sitas) with them. We love how the bride’s hair glowed red in these photos, and the use of black balloons against the backdrop of a wide blue sky. Many thanks to One Way Ticket for the amazing creative direction in capturing the love between these two, along with their adorable pets.

Nostalgic Old Shanghai Inspired Bridal Portraits at PS150

Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Sometimes an idea is sparked from just one detail of the wedding, and for this bride, it was her emerald green cheongsam. From there, she decided on Oriental-themed bridal portraits and a throwback to Old Shanghai.

The décor of PS150 perfectly fit the theme, with its exposed walls, romantic lights and nostalgic little vintage details. Thanks to Peter Herman Photography for this perfectly lovely set of photos.
