    A Timeless White on White Ballroom Wedding in Jakarta

    It is quite magical seeing families come together, and in this lovely couple’s case, it was incredibly special as they completed their church ceremony, as well as their Javanese and Chinese rituals, within the same day. The best part of once-in-a-lifetime moments like these is having them immortalised as memories and captures that last forever. Thank you for these amazing shots, Iluminen!

    An All-White Dreamy Cliff-Top Garden Wedding at Khayangan Estate, Uluwatu

    The dreamiest of all dreamy weddings, this all-white classic is a jaw-dropper indeed, with its textures and interesting touches taking the cake. From the bride’s dress and the décor to the elements of blush pink and grey at the reception, it was all too beautiful for words. Swaths of tulle and an abundance of white flowers and stalks of wheat surrounded the newlyweds and their bridal party for the exchange of vows, which they did against a backdrop of crashing waves and serene cliffs. We’re so in love with this wedding – many thanks to Iluminen for this dazzling set of photos!

    A Dreamy and Rustic Outdoor Wedding at Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Bali

    Most brides would fret about rain on their (outdoor) wedding day, but this bride simply embraced it all! Keeping things clean and minimalist, the bridal couple used tons of dried flowers, which complemented all the other traditional décor elements, including those from their Javanese heritage. What a classic and romantic wedding! We also loved how the bride snuck in a message on her veil: “Love Above All Else”. It’s subtle yet arresting, while her asymmetrical neckline ensured a classic style with her own spin on it. Many thanks to Iluminen for this dreamy set of photos!

    A Classic Yet Rustic Wedding at Amaryllis Boutique Resort, Ciawi

    Inside a glass ceilinged chapel flooded with natural light, and decked out with lots of white flowers and lush greenery, these newlyweds exchanged their vows in the company of some of their closest friends and family. Choosing muted tones, the groomsmen wore grey suits while the bridesmaids looked resplendent in blue-gray lace kebayas. Lace was a defining texture, together with the wooden fixings. What a beautiful wedding, wonderfully captured by Iluminen.

    Weddings are a celebration of two individuals coming together as one, and for these newlyweds, it was also a merging of tradition and the contemporary.
