Destination Bridal Portraits

Love Locked In Paris

Photography by Gallerie CK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

A must-visit in Paris is the Pont des Arts pedestrian bridge that links the Institut de France and the central square of the Palais du Louvre, where lovers leave a padlock with their names or initials on it and throw away the key as a symbol of their unbreakable love. Of course both sides of the bridge is also full of iconic landmarks that no photographer would miss. Thanks, Paul, for showing us another lovely side of Paris.

Walk On The Wild Side

Photos in South Africa. Photo by Andry Sander of Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

While bridal portraits taken in Europe are certainly very romantic, there’s also something to be said for couples who want to dive the deep seas or climb mountains. Thanks to Axioo, we got to share this amazing couple, Estelita and Kenny’s, journey. Thank you for taking the road less travelled and showing us that it’s all right to be yourselves.

Estelita: “We wanted our bridal portraits to be unique, and quite frankly, we did not want to make a trip specifically for photographs. We wanted to go on a great trip and have an awesome photographer capture it for us. Most importantly, we wanted the photos to represent us – a casual, not glamorous but still classy, adventurous and easygoing couple.”

The Quiet Side Of Cambridge And London

Destination bridal portraits at Cambridge. Photo by Moco Bridals

We cannot deny the beauty that is Paris, with its romantic vibe, magnificent architecture and Eiffel Tower that lights up the City of Love. But what we appreciate even more about these photos from Lydia and Douglas is that they also visited London and especially Cambridge, and showed us a quieter yet still beautiful side of England. We love how they just strolled the streets without Lydia’s bridal gown, revealing a kind of intimacy that is sometimes stolen away by staged photography. Thanks to the couple for sharing this with us!

From Venice To Milan

Photo by Kennfoo Weddings. www.theweddingnotebook.com

This is Kenn’s second trip to Italy, a place he vowed to return to after his first shoot there a while ago. This time, he moved up north towards Venice and Milan. It was a really cramped schedule and the weather wasn’t exactly at its best but everyone got the photos that they wanted. We really enjoyed going on this “journey” with them, as Kenn skillfully unveiled the beauty of Italy with these lovely couples.

The Beauty Of Istanbul and Santorini

Photo by Axioo. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Beautiful places and a lovely love story that were very well captured both in photos and words by Axioo; we’ll let them share it with you:

Axioo: “Here are some pictures of Trishia and Johan from their bridal portraits that were shot in Istanbul and Santorini. As a city, Istanbul is stunning. It holds so many historical treasures, amazing palaces right in the city, and remnants of the Ottoman Empire. As a photographer, I recommend shooting in Istanbul as it offers so many exciting places, and as a permanent tourist, I recommend visiting this city that is vibrant by day and festive by night. The Spice Market, the stunning mosques, Bosphorus Strait and the delicious selection of seafood are only a few reasons that will keep me coming back for more.

“‘Beautiful’ acquires a brand new definition on the most picture perfect island of Santorini. With its cobalt blue lagoons, brick red sand and dove white buildings, Santorini looks like a talented artist’s painting of perfection. It was not my first time there, and the memorable adventure we had – including staying at one of the best hotels on the island, Katikies Hotel – is one I would like to repeat again.

“For most of you, this would just be another set of pretty pictures. But for me, they are memories. Trishia and Johan didn’t fall in love at first sight. They didn’t have the smoothest beginning, nor did they have the steadiest of relationships. They were on again and off again, until one day they decided to be on again for the rest of their lives. Now when I look at them, I cannot imagine them being with anyone else. I guess relationships are like that – nothing good ever really comes about that easily or instantly. It takes some honest effort, but it pays off.”

Serenaded In Paris

Destination bridal portraits in Paris by Gallerie CK. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It seems like every photographer who goes to Paris comes back with something fresh. Paul of Gallerie CK brought us back a romantic city filled with music serenading the newlyweds. Even though the couple are doctors by profession and used to ridiculous hours, waking up at three-ish in the morning to begin styling still sounded absurd. Shoots like this can start from as early as six in the morning and last till late at night. Enjoy this beautiful set of photos; it’s indeed a feast for the eyes.

Journey To Rome

Destination bridal portraits in Rome. Andrew Yep Photographie. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world, one that has long marvelled people with its magnificent architecture including palaces, temples and arenas. Many buildings were left in ruins when the Roman Empire fell in the 5th century, and it wasn’t until the early 19th century, when interest in the great ancient empire started to grow, that monuments like the Arch of Titus were excavated and restored. Today, the city is absolutely stunning and definitely a great place for bridal portraits.

Andrew Yep: “Ning is an old friend whom I met during her younger sister Grace’s wedding. When it was Ning’s turn to get hitched, she texted me to say we were flying to Rome for her bridal portraits. Zane is from Singapore while Ning is from Thailand. Rome is indeed one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.”

Autumn In London

Bridal portraits at Peggy Porschen Cakes. WeFreeze Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

There is something very beautiful about the colours of autumn. The sound of crunching leaves set the stage for romance as you walk through the park hand in hand. We love this photoshoot by WeFreeze Photography because the emotions don’t look like they were staged. It seems as if Yuh Jiun and Yow Shern were just having a lovely time together in London and the photographers captured it all without them even noticing. Though it was a pretty cold day, it warms our heart to see them stroll down the streets or spend a quiet moment together at the famous Peggy Porschen Cakes.

In This Beautiful Town Called Imerovigli

Photography by Metrophoto. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Imerovigli is a small resort town perched on a cliff, a short bus ride away from Fira, Greece. Situated on the island of Santorini’s highest point, it is thus called the ‘Balcony to the Aegean’. It is not as densely populated or as popular as the other towns, Oia and Fira, but its charm and vantage point make it awe-inspiringly beautiful especially for weddings.

You can tell from the photos that this is not your regular bride. She had her hair dyed red prior to the wedding, and for this post-wedding shoot, her simple white dress and pastel pink shoes rock our world. Thanks to Metrophoto for giving us a glimpse of this breathtaking town.

The Vibrant Streets of Manila

Photography by Wainwright Weddings. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Mary and Lau flew over to Manila from Kota Kinabalu for a portrait session. There, they went to Intramuros for a casual shoot, with its colonial buildings, cobblestone streets and great colours. Instead of letting the busy and crowded street become an obstacle to the photoshoot, Julian of Wainwright Weddings used it to deliver some very outstanding and interesting shots.

All Eyes On Them

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

This is the first set of bridal portraits and wedding we’ve received that were taken in Switzerland, and we are in love with the place and the photos taken by MunKeat. There’s a good reason why this couple flew the team halfway across the globe to Switzerland, but we’ll let the photos do the explaining.

Roaming Around Japan

Wedding photos in Shibuya, Tokyo. Photography by Studio Numb9r. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It is hard to not love Japan, so we can imagine why many dream to have their bridal portraits done there. Though it is a very busy city, the people and culture more than make up for it. Not everyone can afford a destination bridal portrait session, but photographers in recent years are starting to make it a little bit easier.

Marissa and Jay: “It was like a dream come true to have our bridal portraits taken in Tokyo. We never thought it would be possible until we found Jimmy of Studio Numb9r, who was planning a photography trip to Tokyo. We liked his photography style, so we decided in a very short time to join him.

“The most unforgettable shot was the one taken in Shibuya, at the world’s busiest junction. It was raining and the weather was cold, and we were standing right in the middle when the pedestrian lights turned green. Everyone was staring at us, and some even stopped to congratulate us. It was a bit embarrassing, but overall it was fun.

“Every part of Tokyo is unique, and even though it was very cold when we were there, we enjoyed ourselves very much. The most important thing was we had a very fun time.”
