    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.

    Moody, Grungy and Cool Bridal Portraits at Mount Bromo

    There’s no doubt that Mount Bromo is breathtaking, but we love what these newlyweds chose to do for their bridal portraits. Dressed in a simple black lace dress with pops of mustard yellow and burnt orange, the couple’s outfits certainly set the mood for some extraordinary photos. We especially love the framing of that photo of the bride’s hair blowing in the wind! Thanks, Louis Gan Photography, for this unique and memorable set.

    Stormy Yet Dreamy Bridal Portraits in Queenstown New Zealand

    New Zealand has been described as almost at the end of the world – under populated and filled with the best of Mother Nature’s raw, untouched beauty. From its jaw-dropping mountains and snowcaps to beautiful vast plains, Queenstown was the perfect backdrop for this couple’s bridal portraits. Many thanks to Atipattra for these photos! Vinella: “Our bridal portraits photoshoot took place in Queenstown, New Zealand. We chose that city because we had heard of its raw natural beauty, and none of us had been there before. On the first day of our shoot, we decided to go to this hill early in the morning to catch the sunrise. So we…

    Romantic and Natural Bridal Portraits at Bvlgari Resort Bali

    If you’re thinking of having a quick getaway before your wedding, consider the Bvlgari Resort Bali, as this couple did. Desiring a more “natural” and “earthy” destination, they chose this resort in Uluwatu for its magnificent sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, courtesy of its unique position of being 150 metres above sea level. Thanks for these brilliant shots, Fire, Wood & Earth!

    A Rustic Chic and Floral Backyard Wedding in Jakarta

    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. The décor was romantic and modern, while the bridal party attire was traditional and classic. The ‘akad nikah’ ceremony was traditional, while the reception was where all the modern flavours came out to play. Complete with sparklers, wedding games, fairy lights, and over the top floral décor, this was a wedding to remember indeed. Thanks to Iluminen for capturing all the wonderful details.

    For their 10th anniversary, this couple fulfilled the promise they made when they got married – to return to Nungnung Waterfall Bali, where they had their honeymoon, and renew their vows. Only this time, they also had their two daughters with them. We love that behind every pretty wedding is a beautiful love story that is unique to each couple, and this story, in particular, speaks of strength, commitment, and the fulfilment of promises. Thank you for these amazing shots, Fire, Wood & Earth!

    Quirky and Unconventional Bridal Portraits Taken on Bintan Island, Indonesia

    These are some pretty big, albeit unorthodox, bridal portraits, we have to say! And frankly we did not expect any less from two visual communication designers who are crazy in love and about to tie the knot. From perspective distortions to quirky art frames, these lovebirds wanted to defy the norms of bridal portraits, and that they did. It wasn’t all peculiar oddities (even though each photo looked like an art piece), the couple also took some conventional shots as backup, which were sweet and romantic – we love the ones of them by the beach and in the water, too! Many thanks to Govinda Rumi of Terralogical for this…

    Beach Styled Shoot With Elegant Dried Flowers

    If you fancy the idea of using dried flowers for your wedding, we say to you: do it. Pepper Suite Events, Fire, Wood & Earth, and Verena Mia fused their creative genius for this collaborative styled shoot, “Untamed”, which celebrates the spirit of being wild and free. Two décor canvases – the first bohemian and the second, a beach – lent a contrasting visual effect to the natural elements and the flowing gowns by Mia. We love the splendid ocean view all around The Asmara Nusa Dua, and the nearby semi-private beach with rocky cliffs in the background was perfect for the second styled shoot. The gowns – one a soft grey-blue tone and the other, a pale mauve – were made of layers of silk…
