    A Magical Forest Wedding At Pine Forest Camp Bandung

    In this woodland realm, adorned with drapes of pearl, champagne and white, complemented by luxurious hues of earth and glass, the sounds of merry toasts and hearty cheers filled the air as Shelvin and Steven took their first dance as husband and wife. We love the quaint elegance of luxury on a natural, rustic backdrop – the crystal goblets and candleholders, the splashes of bright red wildflowers, and the fairy lights that hovered like diamond dust. What a romantic, magical forest effect, and what an exquisite wedding celebration! Hats off to Iluminen for these remarkable photos.

    A Wes Anderson-Inspired Boho Chic Forest Wedding In Bandung

    Set in the middle of a misty, dreamy forest and with a striking injection of colour, this wedding perfectly encapsulated the bride and groom’s personality. Thanks to their love for colour and pompoms, the Pine Hill in Bandung was transformed into a fun, bright festival in celebration of this joyous occasion. Some things were kept simple, such as the bridesmaids’ dresses, which were in silver grey. But we were absolutely blown away by the bride’s reception gown, with its full orange skirt that perfectly complemented the many textures and colours of this soiree. An additional decorative note that we loved – the giant dream catcher set in the middle of…

    A Forest Fairytale In Bandung

    Despite the rain and less than favourable weather conditions, this bride and groom managed to capture the rustic beauty of Bandung in all its natural glory for their bridal portraits. While we often favour the use of sunlight, the lack of natural lighting in these bridal portraits created an air of romance and elusive drama, which fit the bride and groom’s look – matching his printed sweater and complementing her deep red dress and floral headpiece. Many thanks to Springworks for capturing this intimate set of bridal portraits.
