    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! Their persistence paid off at last – in an intimate gathering of just 42 people, they exchanged vows and were pronounced husband and wife. And despite their ever-changing plans, they still managed to have the wedding of their dreams. Many thanks to ProudRad for capturing this impeccably beautiful wedding, planned by Sweetdays by Chloe Pablico!

    The pandemic might have slowed things down for the rest of the world, but for Camille and Mark, life took a joyful turn – they’re having a baby!

    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. Shaer Nee: “Every moment held a different memory that meant so much to me. From getting ready, to the gatecrashing games, to the tea ceremony… everything happened in the blink of an eye, but it…

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine April 2021 – Issue 34

    Fuss-free and light-hearted weddings take centre stage this issue, as we share stories of couples who kept things intimate with a small reception – or ditched their reception in favour of a photography session. When it comes to wedding venues, your imagination is your limit, from the traditional cathedral or ballroom to a boutique hotel or even the Tipi Tent at Night Safari in Singapore. In all our stories, each couple found beautiful ways to make the venue their own with simple additions. As for bridal portraits, the pandemic’s travel restrictions have meant that couples are limited to destinations within their own countries, but do not despair. See how photographers…

    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 Bright and Tropical Intimate Backyard Garden Wedding

    What a dream to be able to get married in your own home! For this couple, the bride’s home was full of memories, love and cosy, intimate moments, so it made sense to have their solemnisation ceremony there, especially since they would be moving out soon. We love the pops of colour – the bright and joyful reds, oranges and yellows – and the Balinese inspiration that went so well with the lush tropical vibe. Everything came together with so much love. Many thanks to Present On Pixels for capturing these beautiful wedding shots. Eelaine: “We forgot the rings! Luckily, it was in my bedroom, which was right upstairs. Dennis…

    An Unconventional Rustic and Black Wedding at Sekeping Jugra

    When life as we knew it stopped for so many of us in lockdown, those who had planned to get married during this time were met with uncertainty – to postpone or cancel all together? And if they postponed their wedding, until when? For this couple, as soon as the Malaysian government gave the green light, everything was quickly put in motion for a cosy, intimate wedding. No matter that it wasn’t the big soiree that they had originally intended, the most important people were there and that was all that mattered. Many thanks to Trees On The Moon for capturing this beautiful wedding.

    A Spontaneous Post-Quarantine Family Lunch At JOLOKO, Kuala Lumpur

    This couple’s love story has understated romance and spontaneity sprinkled throughout, right from the time they first met to how they decided to tie the knot! Because of Covid-19 and their being based in Singapore during the Circuit Breaker, they weathered 14 days of quarantine so they could come back to Malaysia just for their ROM! There was no theme, just a celebration of love and their two families coming together. With a cosy gathering of just 20 people, they toasted to their union as they embarked on the next chapter. This lovely set of photos was beautifully captured by Jasmine A. Photography. The Wedding: “We had zero concept. All…

    Celebrating Their Original Wedding Date With a Simple Rustic Chic Vow Exchange At KLoé Hotel

    By now, you would have heard of many cancelled weddings and postponed receptions. While disappointing, these newlyweds still wanted to honour the day they were originally going to become husband and wife. Their intended wedding date fell during Malaysia’s Movement Control Order, which meant large gatherings were not allowed but photoshoots with strict social distancing in place were good to go. These pre-wedding shots were taken at the newly opened rustic chic boutique hotel, KLoé Hotel in downtown KL, and the couple also used the opportunity to exchange their personal vows. Love prevails! The beautiful space and lush wildflowers, together with the bride’s chic bridal jumpsuit, made for a beautifully…
