A Romantic Lavender Garden Wedding at Pandawa Cliff Estate, Bali

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

There’s something so romantic about getting married by the sea, and it’s even better if you’re up on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The bride and groom of this wedding chose to build their wedding theme around the colour lavender, punctuated with wooden accents such as rattan pendant lights, oak chairs and wooden plates. The combination of grey, green and blush pink with lavender was beautiful and effortlessly elegant. Many thanks to Fire, Wood & Earth for this absolutely gorgeous set of photos!

Resplendent Blush on White Wedding at Darlington Estate Perth

Photo by Iluminen. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Behind every beautiful wedding is a story of priorities and decisions. From the gorgeous cathedral where they said their vows to the charming oaken reception hall, Darlington Estate brought this couple’s every conceivable wedding ideal to life.

This Indonesian couple living in Australia had made the decision to host their wedding in Perth, and very quickly, they found the idea of hosting their wedding in a winery with a rustic concept appealing and feasible. The estate would be private and secluded, just as they desired. The couple rolled up their sleeves and infused everything that mattered to them into the day, organising the wedding themselves and enlisting the help of a friend, Evyta Irawan of @eloqui.co, to design all the stationery. It was extra special because Evyta had also been their matchmaker! Thank you for this lovely album, Iluminen.

“It really was amazing to look around and think that all these people had travelled all the way to Perth out of love and support for us,” said the bride. “Most of our friends were from overseas – Indonesia, Hong Kong and the United States. We felt so blessed that people from different stages of our lives had all come together to celebrate with us.

“In the days leading up to the wedding, news reports confirmed that there would be a thunderstorm on our wedding day, and that made us very nervous. But thankfully, the rains only came after everyone had been seated inside. In the end, the shower created a beautiful tapestry of raindrops and cloudy skies.”

The floral arrangements were unstructured, romantic and rustic-style with a garden-inspired feel, brilliantly done by Anneliese of @signaturefloraldesign. And instead of a photobooth, a Polaroid guestbook table stood as a delightful space where guests could snap Polaroid photos and leave signed messages for the newlyweds.

Tips from the bride: “Follow wedding inspiration pages on Instagram or Pinterest. If you are confused by the myriad themes and colours palettes, just ‘like’ plenty of pictures and you will eventually identify with the style you love most. 
 
“Just remember that no two weddings are the same. Don’t stress out on having the exact designs that you want. The truth is that choosing a suitable vendor who identifies with your style is more important than opting for the most famous or expensive ones. Do that, and leave the rest to them.

“Lastly, budget your wedding costs properly as they can blow up. Prioritise where you should spend your money. Most importantly, your wedding should be fun instead of stressful! It is okay to get rid of many unnecessary details and pretentious wedding traditions – with the approval of your family, of course.”

A Chic DIY Burgundy Wedding at Neo Tamarind

Photo by Munkeat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

When you have a deep theme colour like burgundy, it’s important that everything else pops. These newlyweds opted for various textures in white, including ropes, fabric and floral details. The results were chic yet glamorous, and the wooden accents of the venue, together with all the other decorative elements such as the signboards, really added to the warmth of the occasion. What a beautifully intimate affair, where the focus was solely on the union of the newlyweds. MunKeat Photography captured the essence of the day perfectly.

We’re completely captivated by this forest wedding! Almost straight out of a movie set, the details and decorative elements all came together for a picture perfect celebration. Inspired by the Twilight movie, this bride’s dream wedding featured lush drapes and hanging ferns, as well as chandeliers and woven hangings, in a clean green and white palette.

A DIY Rustic Chic Wedding at Rowan & Parsley, Johor Bahru

Photo by Peter Herman Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Their intention to keep things cosy and simple did not stop these newlyweds from pulling out all the stops when it came to the little details that added flair and elegance to their wedding soiree. What’s even more impressive was that the wedding was entirely DIY. Granted, the venue was already a gem on its own, but the flowers and liberal use of eucalyptus, ferns and herbs really brought the rustic chic theme together. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous set of photos, Peter Herman Photography!

A Burgundy Chic Rooftop Garden Wedding in Muar, Johor

A garden on the roof? Bringing the outside indoors? Thanks to these ingenious ways of creating her dream wedding, this bride’s rustic garden celebration was beautifully adorned with green ferns, wildflowers, and floral elements in deep, rich colours. It was a beautiful contrast to the brick wall, glasshouse, and wood and steel elements that were part of the venue. These beautiful shots were captured by AlbertG of MCS Wedding Gallery; thanks for sharing!

A Lush Green and White Intimate Floral Wedding in Jakarta

Photo by Diktat Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Closely resembling an indoor garden, this intimate wedding was warm and enveloped in so much love and nature, with décor comprising lush greens and botanicals with simple, clean white flowers. Attended by family and close friends only, it was the perfect mix of modern and rustic, with a nod towards traditions and family. The bride’s lace gown and veil added texture to the simple colour palette, while the groom’s tan linen suit complemented the warm neutrals perfectly. Many thanks to DiktatPhotography for this wonderful set of photos!

Blush And Brass Garden Wedding At Alila Villas Uluwatu Bali

Photo by Diktatphotography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

It was as much a reunion as it was a wedding celebration for Ken Eun and Min Chung. We love how this South Korean couple living in New York had a most intimate garden wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. Planning a destination wedding can be a stressful affair, especially with the remote sourcing and organising, but kudos to this awesome bride for pulling it off so beautifully. Many thanks to DiktatPhotography for these mesmerising photos!

Kee Uen was browsing on Pinterest when she fell in love with the blush on green theme. Combining bronze, brass and tan with varying shades of blush, the couple’s wedding was a dignified display of the features she liked, including the monstera leaf and the king protea flower. Trees sparkled with fairy lights, casting a romantic glow over loved ones as they dined beneath a sunset sky.

An Eco-conscious Wedding At Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, Singapore

Photo by Samuel Goh Photography. www.theweddingnotebook.com

Is it any surprise that this couple’s socially responsible wedding was clever, fun and well received by family and friends? Ashley and Jarrod wanted a wedding that was socially conscious and that had a low environmental impact wherever possible. Instead of using fresh flowers, their florist came up with the brilliant idea of using dried flowers and opening up a herb bar where the flowers/herbs could be wrapped in a bouquet for guests to bring home as wedding favours.

With the help of Ashley’s father, they also created a backdrop of recycled wooden pallets that was used for both the ceremony and the lunch reception in the church. Everyone was on board with the eco-conscious theme, including the vendors like Covenant Jewellery and Bettr Barista, who do good work with underprivileged and marginalised communities. Kudos to Samuel Goh Photography for these fantastic captures!
