    Glamorous High Fashion Bridal Portraits in Shanghai

    Shanghai never disappoints, with its rich history and twinkling lights in stark contrast with the skyscrapers and modern infrastructure. Yet the allure of old China remains when you explore its sidewalks and pavements, and these photos are proof. We love the bride’s jaw-dropping outfits and dramatic makeup, the hustle and bustle of the streets, and especially that rooftop shot overlooking the Shanghai skyline! Many thanks to Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto for these shots, which, by the way, were only the first stop for the couple in a series of locations across China. Don’t miss part 2 of their bridal portraits, which were taken in Lijiang and Shangri-La.

    A Timeless Blush On Cream Wedding Portraits

    You don’t have to look too hard to find the ideal wedding palette. For something evergreen, elegant and easy on the eyes, blush on cream with touches of nature creates a sense of openness and charm that is sure to please. And really, it’s much easier to enjoy your big day when you have such a beautiful backdrop, don’t you think? Cotton, the bridal couple’s pup, was the true star here, setting a playful tone and warming everybody up for the photoshoot. Many thanks to Helium Hearts by Marlon Capuyan for this awesome album!

    A Lush Green and White Intimate Floral Wedding in Jakarta

    Closely resembling an indoor garden, this intimate wedding was warm and enveloped in so much love and nature, with décor comprising lush greens and botanicals with simple, clean white flowers. Attended by family and close friends only, it was the perfect mix of modern and rustic, with a nod towards traditions and family. The bride’s lace gown and veil added texture to the simple colour palette, while the groom’s tan linen suit complemented the warm neutrals perfectly. Many thanks to DiktatPhotography for this wonderful set of photos!

    A Rustic Yet Elegant Barn Wedding in Victoria

    Don’t let the bright blue skies deceive you; this beautiful rustic wedding took place right in the middle of winter! Australian winters often come through with great weather, and these cosy nuptials found the perfect setting at Stones of the Yarra Valley in Victoria.

    An Earthy DIY Cosy Garden Wedding

    Sometimes the best-laid plans are when there are fewer or close to no plans. These newlyweds pulled off their cosy garden wedding, including DIY projects such as the ring pillow and wedding arch, in surprisingly little time! The garden surroundings were the perfect complement to their simple and clean colour palette. Keeping with the nature theme, the bridal bouquet was understated and gorgeous, with eucalyptus branches standing in contrast to the white and cream flowers. Also juxtaposed against the green and white shades were the wooden textures and accents. Meanwhile, the bridal party wore grey to keep things neutral and ensure that the focus was on the bridal couple’s celebration…
