    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…

    We love the exhilarating tempo of this unconventional wedding that was held at Wesley Methodist Church, Hotel Fort Canning and The Grand Marquee in Singapore. The lovely couple opted for just a wedding march in order to spend more time with their guests, showcase the special performances, and enjoy that which mattered the most. Thank you for these brilliant captures, AndroidsinBoots!

    A Vintage, Chic and Intimate Tea Ceremony in Kuala Lumpur

    The tea ceremony is often quite emotional and sentimental, celebrating the union of two people and two families becoming one. What’s lovely about this intimate ceremony is that it also makes for beautiful photos. These newlyweds chose hues of blue to contrast the traditional red tones, and included vintage elements such as a Volkswagen Beetle wedding car. And after all the fun and games were done, there was even a Malaysian style breakfast spread – nasi lemak cups, fresh fruit platters and mee hoon! Many thanks to MJK Photography for capturing these happy moments.

    An Old School Chinese Gate-Crashing Ceremony

    Most Chinese wedding customs have been modernised but some traditions still remain, such as the tea ceremony and the gate-crashing ceremony, where the groom picks up the bride. These are, without a doubt, the most sentimental and joyous aspects of the whole day. The gatecrashing ceremony fills the house with a lot of laughter as both sides of the family get acquainted with one another through ice-breaker games; while the tea ceremony is a traditional and sweet way of introducing the new family member to each side. Here, we love how Rachel was resplendent in her ‘kua’ and how charming Chris looked in his traditional Chinese outfit, plus that beautiful…

    A Colourful Gatecrashing Ceremony At Sekeping Seapark

    This couple infused their incredibly sweet wedding with their own style and pulled it off with the help of friends and family – from the decorations and calligraphy aisle to the wedding cake and catering. The pops of bright yellow against the clean white and green hues were perfectly accentuated by the tinges of gold. Not forgetting the little details such as the cute patterns, quirky notes, moustache boutonnières and colourful socks. All of it was made complete by the radiant smiles of the happy couple and their guests. Thanks to hellojanelee for this beautiful set of photos!
