    A Joyful Dusty Pink Beach Wedding At Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang

    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. Many thanks to Sugar and Spice Events for sharing and Manoj Photography for capturing this sweet wedding! Jia-Wei: “There were so…

    Bridal Shower with a Palm Springs Theme

Thanks to I Heart Party for sharing this absolutely chic event with us, and Fad Manaf Wedding & Portrait Photography for the photos. Juliana: “Friendship is something I hold very dear to my heart, and all the ladies that were invited have shared with me, in some form or shape, their friendship and love. It was so important for me to have them attend my bridal shower, and although a few women were missing from the day, having most of them attend and celebrate this…

    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…

    A Chic, Nature-Filled, Dusty Blue Wedding at Tamarind Springs, KL

    Weddings don’t always have to be formal affairs, you can get all dolled up for a low-key celebration too. Here, we love the combination of a dusty blue colour palette and wooden textures, surrounded by lush greenery and elegant blooms. The bridal couple also added personal touches in the form of a sports jersey guestbook and a delectable gelato stand featuring Malaysian flavours. Many thanks to Zach Chin of MunKeat Studios for this delightful set of wedding photos! Jocelyn: “Our highlights of the day were multiple tear-jerking speeches, as well as a surprise video from my dad. He had spent several months practising and recording a song! “We have always…

    Sweet and Dreamy Bridal Portraits in Bandung, Indonesia

    From casual to artsy, these bridal portraits certainly captured a spectrum of looks. With its foggy meadows and the delightful addition of grazing deer, Bandung proved to be a most beautiful backdrop, but the team also opted for portraits in an urban setting, goofing off as they played with light and shadow effects. Many thanks to Zakhri Harahap of Sheerss Photography for this set of photos!

    An Impromptu Silver and Blue Church Wedding

    For many couples, a postponement of their wedding was inevitable when the pandemic hit. With Bianca and Modesto, however, they decided to bring forward their wedding date and just tie the knot anyway! Saying ‘I do’ to the love of your life really just needs the both of you, a handful of witnesses (loved ones and family), and the priest to officiate. Standing before just 10 guests and with social distancing protocols in place, they pulled it off! That didn’t mean they had to compromise on the décor and flowers or their wonderful day. With the mothers of the bride and groom looking resplendent in their grey-blue gowns and the…

    A Fun-Filled, Cream-Coloured Classic Wedding at St. Regis Caroline’s Mansion, Singapore

    Simple yet elegant with romantic personal touches, the quiet glamour of this special day was all in the details. From the textures on the bride’s dress and veil to the beautiful floral choices, all set against an Art Deco-inspired backdrop, it’s no wonder this couple (and their guests) were all smiles. Many thanks to Smittenpixels Photography for this sweet set of photos. Irish: “We enjoyed our second march-in the most as it was very fun. We had tequila shots with our guests while we danced in to the song ‘Built to Last’. We wanted our wedding to be classy, elegant and romantic. The colour theme was cream, lilac and a…

    Artistic Monochromatic Bridal Portraits in Sydney

    Could your bridal portraits become art? How awesome would it be for guests to realise that the artwork hanging in your home is also your bridal portraits? These newlyweds have the right idea – playing with negative space, using shadows, and getting creative with black and white photos. Those sand dunes are a gorgeous and unique backdrop too. Love this set by Aldo of Axioo.

    Nature-Filled Engagement Portraits in the Hidden Gem that is Bako National Park, Sarawak

    Inspired by this couple’s love for the outdoors, filled with sentimentality and untouched beauty, these engagement portraits perfectly capture the artistry of Mother Nature. Shot on an island that is part of Bako National Park, the fine sand beaches, dramatic granite rocks and exposed tree roots formed the most spectacular backdrop. We love the bride-to-be’s super chic outfit as well – a slouchy white suit jacket with a maxi skirt and wide-brimmed hat. Many thanks to Andy Phe Photography for this breathtaking set of photos!

    A Rustic Chic, Dusty Pink Vineyard Wedding in the Yarra Valley

    With deep, moody hues set against bright white blooms, and dark eucalyptus leaves contrasting textured wheat stalks, this chic wedding was simply gorgeous! The ivy-covered walls and warm wooden textures were the perfect backdrop, and we especially love the ceiling bouquet of flowers that took the place of a chandelier! The bride looked absolutely resplendent in her lacy bridal gown and classic jewellery, and the entire bridal party was truly a sight to behold. Many thanks to Jasmine A. Photography for this unbelievably beautiful set of photos.

    A Modern Art-inspired Floral Wedding at an Art Gallery in Singapore

    File this one under wedding inspirations! Who knew an art gallery would be so perfect for a wedding, but of course – the perfect lighting, white walls, beautiful pieces of art as the backdrop and an intimate setting… what more could you ask for? We also love how the bride and groom were styled to complement the decorative elements in this space. Many thanks to The Wildest Dreams, 8dec and This Humid House for this gorgeously styled shoot, and to Maritha Mae for capturing these beautiful photos.
