    A Romantic Elopement Styled Shoot at The Datai Langkawi

    Malaysians are truly fortunate to have such an abundance of beautiful resorts and beaches on our doorstep. It might be a while before we can hold destination weddings again, but there’s nothing stopping you from saying “I do” by the beach, or against the backdrop of a lush rainforest. From the sun-soaked private beaches of Datai Bay to the lush gardens and rainforests surrounding The Datai Langkawi, could this be any more perfect for an intimate wedding or romantic elopement? Located at the north-western tip of Langkawi island, this exclusive resort has all the answers: a cosy, sunset ceremony on the beach, perhaps, or the magical deck overlooking the rainforest…

    A Light-Filled, Minimalist Wedding with a Surprise Getaway at The Shorea!

    With the pandemic that is upon us, it’s time to get creative. Life has to go on, and we love how this couple celebrated their union with a surprise getaway for their “after party”. Accompanied by their 20 guests, the trip followed their wedding ceremony at the conservatory-style restaurant Botanica + Co, and was actually a surprise from the groom to his new bride. How romantic! Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing the joy of this beautiful celebration. Rowena of The Peak Xperience: “Jordan had pulled out all the stops to arrange a surprise retreat at The Shorea especially for Seh Xi, with a handful of their dearest friends…

    A Whimsical and Glamorous Wedding in Ilocos Sur, The Philippines

    After years in a long distance relationship, this couple was finally ready to get married, only to have a volcano eruption scare and the Covid-19 pandemic derail their wedding plans!

    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 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.

    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 Subtly Elegant and Modern Intimate Wedding at The RuMa Hotel & Residences

    We often make the mistake of thinking that a small wedding has to mean something simple and lacklustre, but these newlyweds and wedding planner, Sherly of Tie The Knot, did exactly the opposite, achieving a wedding celebration that was both intimate and oh-so-glamorous. Amidst the lush backdrop of flowers and greenery was the understated elegance of a gilded geometric arch – we love how it peeks out as part of the backdrop while the couple exchanged their vows!
