Stormy Yet Dreamy Bridal Portraits in Queenstown New Zealand

Photo by Atipattra. www.theweddingnotebook.com

New Zealand has been described as almost at the end of the world – under populated and filled with the best of Mother Nature’s raw, untouched beauty. From its jaw-dropping mountains and snowcaps to beautiful vast plains, Queenstown was the perfect backdrop for this couple’s bridal portraits. Many thanks to Atipattra for these photos!

Vinella: “Our bridal portraits photoshoot took place in Queenstown, New Zealand. We chose that city because we had heard of its raw natural beauty, and none of us had been there before. On the first day of our shoot, we decided to go to this hill early in the morning to catch the sunrise. So we hiked up when it was still dark, in the middle of winter, with me already in my dress! To say that it was hard is an understatement! It was freezing cold and I was afraid that my toes would get frostbite so I ended up wearing my Mathieu’s boots towards the end of the shoot. Even though the sun decided not to appear that morning, we had a blast because the view was so beautiful nonetheless.”

Refreshing Bridal Portraits in Bario, Sarawak

Photo by White Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Take your pick from the many lesser-known places in Malaysia for your bridal portraits. Our country is replete with awesome locations for shoots, if only we looked a little more carefully. That’s how this couple found the location for their photoshoot – Bario, situated in the Kelabit Highlands in Miri, Sarawak, is a true gem. Kudos to white/白 for these memorable shots!

Describing the mountainous region as a land that is rich in mountain salt, and covered in paddy fields and pineapple plantations, the bride shared: “This is such a special place in Malaysia. We flew in via MAS Wings. It was such a chilled out place, without mobile network service.”

The couple even had the opportunity to dwell in the Village Chief’s home, and were told that they were the first people to do a bridal shoot in Bario. Talk about an experience to be treasured forever!

“Everything was memorable,” shared the bride. “From walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing my groom, right through to the reception dinner!” The outdoor space gave the bridal couple the refreshing ambience that they sought for their ceremony, while their reception in the oaken hall was a cosy treat indeed, with minimalist décor and a cherry blossom-esque tree in the hall. The overall effect was tasteful, subtle and classy.

As wedding favours, the jars of Manuka honey complete with dippers were absolutely charming gifts, and very apt given that the couple had met and fallen in love in New Zealand. What better way to share a part of those precious memories with their loved ones and guests?

Tips from the bride: “Pinterest and Instagram will be your best friends throughout the planning process, as you’ll spend hours searching for ideas and inspiration. Plan in advance. Getting a wedding planner is one way to reduce the stress! It is never too early to plan your wedding together with your husband-to-be.”

Hunter Green Rustic Wedding in Kuala Lumpur

Photo by Studio Numb9r. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It’s easy to set a wedding against a minimalist or industrial backdrop. What we love about venues like Studio Numb9r in Kuala Lumpur is their versatility and timelessness, as evidenced by this gorgeous wedding. Thank you for these spot-on captures, Jimmy Tan of Studio Numb9r!

The bride’s love of flowers and greenery made deciding their wedding theme easy. They chose the venue for its brick walls and natural lighting, which complemented their rustic décor well. The bridesmaids wore a beautiful shade of emerald, which paired nicely with the groomsmen’s light grey suits.

Gorgeous White and Gold Themed Wedding at The Andaman Langkawi

zPhoto by Zach Chin of Munkeat Studio. www.theweddingnotebook.com

They wanted a beach wedding right from the get-go – but oh, what an adventure it was! On the day of their wedding, they woke up to dark clouds overhead and decided to wait it out. Torrential rain fell as the guests and groom’s party gathered in the lobby bar, waiting patiently. Eventually, the skies cleared and the sun began to creep through the clouds – slowly but surely, the long-awaited wedding ceremony began to come together. Thank you for capturing all of this beautifully, Zach Chin of Munkeat Studio!

Vibrant Photoshoot at the Insta-worthy The Linc KL

Photo by Twins Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Time and again, couples – and their photographers – impress us with their creativity in the way they infuse life and colour into bridal portraits. For this, the idea was to frame the couple’s relationship within the urban and colourful context of Kuala Lumpur. Our gratitude, and kudos, to Twins Photography for these awesome shots!

The shoot location, The Linc KL, is a new hybrid shopping mall; hybrid in the sense that it contains both indoor and outdoor spaces. We love it already! With its trendy industrial theme and promotion of arts and crafts by local artists, the venue certainly ensured a number of interesting settings and angles for this photoshoot.

Romantic and Natural Bridal Portraits at Bvlgari Resort Bali

Photo by Fire Wood and Earth. www.theweddingnotebook.com

If you’re thinking of having a quick getaway before your wedding, consider the Bvlgari Resort Bali, as this couple did. Desiring a more “natural” and “earthy” destination, they chose this resort in Uluwatu for its magnificent sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, courtesy of its unique position of being 150 metres above sea level. Thanks for these brilliant shots, Fire, Wood & Earth!

We love the aesthetics of these well-planned bridal portraits. What better narration of this couple’s love story than the transparency, lightness and tenderness captured in this album that was shot in Venice, Italy? Thank you for these beautiful images, Eric Kelley!

The atmosphere, architecture and romance of Venice was the perfect setting in which to document this wedding story. True to the brand’s tagline, the bride’s wedding dress from My Wony was indeed “light as air, tender as love”. Every other detail, from her jewellery and makeup to her heels and flowers, all came together in glorious harmony.
