    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! Aloiza: “While this might sound cliché, every moment of our wedding day was memorable, for it was everything we hoped for and more. “Our love…

    A Classic, Simple Church Wedding in Manila

    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 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…

    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!
