    An All-White Nautical Themed Yacht Wedding in Manila Bay

    The ongoing pandemic has meant that couples have had to get creative with their wedding planning, whether it was eloping, postponing, or simply keeping things really intimate. These newlyweds went one step further, tying the knot on a yacht! Now that’s a pandemic wedding for the photo albums. As a wedding venue, the yacht ticked all the right boxes, from keeping the guests safely distanced from crowds to, of course, being downright gorgeous. Thanks to ProudRad for these blissfully romantic wedding photos! Josh: “Our wedding planning was actually rushed, as we had originally planned to get married in Bali in January 2021. Due to unforeseen circumstances and the pandemic, we…

    An Artistic and Dreamy Film Bridal Photoshoot in Batu Pahat, Johor

    At first glance, these bridal portraits look like they are straight out of a Japanese countryside. There’s a forgotten quality of film photography that is only achieved in digital photos with edits or filters these days. This styled photoshoot that was shot with a Kodak Portra400 and Canon Eos55 created the perfect dreamy vibe for this couple, and one would never have guessed that it was done right here in Batu Pahat, Johor! It’s amazing what a little creative styling and an old-fashioned film camera can do. Many thanks to Rayson Lo and Yandha Goh of Sanren Studio for this wonderful set of photos.

    A Dreamy Dusty Pink Evening Wedding With Fairy Lights in Singapore

    We love the contrarian route this couple took – firstly, by choosing to have their ceremony in the evening, with the bride walking in at sunset; and secondly, by using dried flowers and leaves, save for the pops of dusty pink. The timing made all the difference as the newlyweds said their vows underneath a majestic tree covered in beautiful fairy lights, surrounded by 50 of their friends and family. Thanks to Hellofrom flour for this dreamy setup, and Juanmoley Fotologue for this lovely set of photos! Farron: “My most memorable moment was during the solemnisation, when Jasmine and I were having our own little side conversation during the celebrant’s…

    A Modern Rust Orange Iban Wedding in Kuching

    Iban culture is rooted in lots of rituals, especially when it comes to weddings. This celebration didn’t just bring together two families, it also brought together the old and the new, showcasing Iban traditions while keeping to a modern and minimalist theme. The bride and groom had fun choosing colours that represented their personalities – rust orange for the bride to signify fire, and pastel blue for the groom to signify water. What a way to celebrate their union! Thanks to Andy Phe Photography for the photos, and congrats to In Esse Event & Design for pulling this off. Bryan: “The most memorable moment from our big day was the…

    A Cosy, Rustic Lemonade-Coloured Wedding in The Grounds, Kuala Lumpur

    The brick wall aesthetic is always a rustic touch. Pair it with bright pops of yellow, orange and blush pink, and you get a vibrant wedding celebration filled with joyful vibes. We love that the colour palette was “lemonade citrus”, with actual lemons as part of the décor. Keeping it intimate and small, the bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of just 50 guests, against a gilded hexagonal arch as their backdrop. Thanks to Louis Gan Photography for capturing this sweet set of photos! Rachael: “The most memorable for us was having the presence of our close family and friends from overseas on our big day (just before…

    A Quirky ‘Moonrise Kingdom’-Inspired Night Safari Wedding in Singapore

    Now here’s a wedding for these Covid times – one that is outdoors and with facemasks! Turning the pandemic facemask on its head while also paying homage to Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’, this couple incorporated “foxy” masks into their wedding, to brilliant effect. We love the rustic feel and nature vibes of the venue, not to mention the quirky aesthetics and fun additions in the form of exotic animals that made an appearance during the Night Safari! What a wonderful way to celebrate your wedding with family and friends. Many thanks to Leslie Photography for this beautiful set of photographs. Paige: “It rained throughout the morning…

    A Classic, Simple Church Wedding in Manila

    The pandemic might have slowed things down for the rest of the world, but for Camille and Mark, life took a joyful turn – they’re having a baby! Keeping things simple but intimate, they finally got to exchange vows and become husband and wife. At their reception, in addition to celebrating their wedding, they also did a gender reveal of their baby – it’s a baby boy! Thank you, ProudRad, for this gorgeous and sweet set of wedding photos. Mark: “Our story is one of providence amidst a pandemic. It started in March 2020, when the country went into lockdown just as we returned from a trip to Japan. Japan…

    A Stylish DIY Floral Wedding at Raffles Hotel, Singapore

    What’s a wedding without flowers? We never want to find out, and especially not when the bride is a wedding florist herself! Linnette from Floral Magic knew right off the bat that she wanted lots of flowers, but what truly made her day special was getting to say “I do” to the love of her life, and seeing her family and friends come together for the celebration. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for these photos. Linnette: “There were so many memorable moments! Both of us catching each other’s eyes at the end of the aisle, my niece hijacking my sister’s speech with a song because she wanted to perform,…

    Artistic and Dreamy Bridal Portraits with LED Lights

    Not only has the pandemic affected wedding celebrations and receptions, but couples also found themselves limited to local spots when it came to shooting bridal portraits. It didn’t help that Singapore is a rather small country, but fortunately, it has a vibrant artistic community and photographers who found ways to make photoshoots interesting. Often, this meant trying new things and going outside of their comfort zone. Here, Pixioo Photography experimented with LED lights for these night portraits, and we are in love with the results.

    A Joyful, Modern and Chic Intimate Wedding at KLoé Hotel

    Weddings may have been simplified since the Covid-19 pandemic began, but keeping celebrations small and intimate doesn’t mean couples have to miss out on celebrating their special day with loved ones. These newlyweds commemorated their big day with a photoshoot that included their bridal party, making full use of the beautiful venue, KLoé Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. Many thanks to Twins Photography for capturing all the happiness of this beautiful occasion and these gorgeous bridal portraits. Shaer Nee: “Every moment held a different memory that meant so much to me. From getting ready, to the gatecrashing games, to the tea ceremony… everything happened in the blink of an eye, but it…

    As we mark a year since Covid-19 came into our lives, we also celebrate with this bride and groom who managed to squeeze in their nuptials before the world, and our lives as we knew it, changed. Their celebration was so intimate, cosy and full of love! In lieu of wedding entertainment, the bride’s family performed, which made it even more meaningful. The elegance of their beach wedding transformed into a marquee reception was subtle yet classy, made complete with a colour palette of white, dusty pink and sage.

    A Lush, Intimate Floral-Themed Wedding With Pops Of Colour At Tamarind Hill

    The question we’ve all asked lately is, how will weddings look like now with Covid-19? We’ve had ZOOM weddings, weddings at home, weddings with just 10 people… For Rebecca and Wy Keat, they had all the usual excitement of the day, but with just 50 people and a Zoom call for everyone who could not be there. Paring things down meant highlighting the things that mattered. The bride also ensured that everything could be reusable, and that both her and the groom had time with their loved ones on their special day. We love the pops of joyful orange and the warmth of the venue – what a truly perfect…
