    Refreshing and Gorgeous Wedding at Rama V Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur

    We can’t help but smile going through this gorgeous album. The wedding was supposed to have been held in the outdoor area of the Rama V Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur, but alas, it started to pour just half an hour before the ceremony – just as the couple arrived! We love how undeterred they were, putting their best foot forward and bringing their wedding indoors. Our thanks to Louis Gan Photography for these brilliant captures, and Little Once Deco and Witchwood The Florist for the lovely décor!

    A Chic Yet Moody Intimate Wedding At Wildflowers KL, Chinatown

    What a beautiful and understatedly chic wedding! From the bride’s low ponytail and trendy off-shoulder bridal gown to the venue’s all-black interior, these newlyweds definitely knew what they were doing. They even got their guests to all dress in white for the occasion! It’s de rigour now to have family-only weddings with less than 50 people, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo a glamorous setup. It is still your special day, after all! Many thanks to Pathway Events & Design and Louis Gan Photography for this beautiful set of photos.

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine October 2020 – Issue 32

    We love how, amid this gloomy pandemic season, couples are brightening up their weddings with exuberant floral arrangements and happy Fall hues. Unlike the usual, highly structured big weddings of before, today’s weddings are all about keeping things small, intimate and joyful. Love is always worth celebrating, even in this season. In the same way, the latest bridal collections might be notable for their simplicity and minimalism, but they definitely aren’t short on glamour, showing up in metallic shades and sexy bodices. Looking at this issue, we are reminded of why we love weddings, and the joy and hope this very special occasion brings to our lives. {If you have…

    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…

    This issue is dedicated to the courageous couples out there who have refused to let this Covid-19 pandemic stop them from declaring their love for each other. Some have live-streamed their wedding ceremonies on social media, while others have simply scaled down their celebrations to include only their closest of loved ones. One couple decided to commemorate the day they had originally intended to get married on with a photoshoot, while another crossed borders and endured 14 days of quarantine so that they could be reunited with their families for their big day. It warmed our hearts to read these stories. The way we see it, weddings have evolved for…

    FaceTime Bridal Portraits Taken During The MCO That Look Like Film Stills

    For most photographers, going outside to take photographs is what keeps their creative fire going. With Covid-19 putting us all in lockdown, however, the wedding photography community has been compelled to find new ways to hone their skills. Ultimately, it’s all about composition, inspiration, and going by your gut feeling, right? Building on ND of Sanren Studio’s Zoom photoshoot experiment, Louis Gan of Louis Gan Photography got in on the action too, playing with lights and filters for his photos of Asther and Wilson.

    A Showstopping Elegant All-White Wedding At Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

    It’s not often that you find large animal figurines and a carousel underneath the magnificent chandeliers of a ballroom for a wedding, but this is exactly what Jane Chuck and Hanpin Ma’s wedding entailed. Also known as Instagram royalty in the Malaysian fashion scene, the couple ensured that their wedding perfectly encapsulated their personalities and love for each other. With Jane’s chic style and Hanpin’s classic tastes, this was a celebration to remember! Many thanks to Louis Gan Photography for this beautiful set of photos.

    Bridal Portraits Shot at Cactus Country, Australia

    It’s been proven time and time again – all you really need for a great set of bridal portraits are a willing couple and the expertise of a remarkable photographer. Also, we just love the display of nature in these images. Thank you for these, Louis Gan Photography! Cactus Country is home to over 4,000 species of cacti and succulents from around the world. The couple is clearly in love with the assorted shapes and sizes of these plants, which provided them with plenty of different shots. The concentration of plants also saved them time that they would have otherwise needed to travel to different locations.

    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.

    From the breathtaking blues of Santorini to sunsets overlooking the Venice canals, from a lush Australian vineyard to a cliff top wedding in Koh Samui – the wonders of Mother Nature never cease. We are so taken by the immense beauty found in this issue that we could gaze at the photos of these picture perfect destination weddings forever. One of the best things about destination weddings is that often, the picturesque landscapes and stunning spaces are enough all on their own. This reduces the decorating workload so that bridal couples can focus on what really matters – their guests, and one another. One need not travel far to experience…
