    A Romantic, Moody Floral Wedding at Sentul Depot, Kuala Lumpur

    The pandemic definitely threw a spanner into the works, but that didn’t stop Eileen and Nicholas from planning their dream wedding – and having the time of their lives when they finally got to celebrate their union. We know many couples have had to recalibrate their wedding plans, and these newlyweds were no different. From the décor to the delectable cheeseboard, they put extra thought into their special day to make their guests feel as if they had “travelled” somewhere. Many thanks to Natasha Khoo of The Peak Xperience for the gorgeous setup and Vinoth Raj Pillai for capturing these beautiful photos of joy! Additional decor photos above in this…

    A Romantic Elopement Styled Shoot at The Datai Langkawi

    Malaysians are truly fortunate to have such an abundance of beautiful resorts and beaches on our doorstep. It might be a while before we can hold destination weddings again, but there’s nothing stopping you from saying “I do” by the beach, or against the backdrop of a lush rainforest. From the sun-soaked private beaches of Datai Bay to the lush gardens and rainforests surrounding The Datai Langkawi, could this be any more perfect for an intimate wedding or romantic elopement? Located at the north-western tip of Langkawi island, this exclusive resort has all the answers: a cosy, sunset ceremony on the beach, perhaps, or the magical deck overlooking the rainforest…

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine July 2021 – Issue 35

    With travel plans and many weddings put on hold, we hope this issue will inspire you as you plan your own pandemic wedding. Most of these couples will have waited at least a year for their big day, and there’s a couple who waited 693 days! Despite the pared down guestlists and last-minute changes, each of these weddings were a dream come true, featuring unique highlights such as the creative use of an abandoned space, a yacht celebration, a Santorini-like venue, and a surprise retreat in place of an after party! What’s that saying? “If you can’t change the situation, change your attitude.” See how you can emulate a destination…

    With the pandemic that is upon us, it’s time to get creative. Life has to go on, and we love how this couple celebrated their union with a surprise getaway for their “after party”. Accompanied by their 20 guests, the trip followed their wedding ceremony at the conservatory-style restaurant Botanica + Co, and was actually a surprise from the groom to his new bride. How romantic!

    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!

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!

As a wedding venue, the yacht ticked all the right boxes, from keeping the guests safely distanced from crowds to, of course, being downright gorgeous. Thanks to ProudRad for these blissfully romantic wedding photos! Josh: “Our wedding planning was actually rushed, as we had originally planned to get married in Bali in January 2021.

    An Artistic and Dreamy Film Bridal Photoshoot in Batu Pahat, Johor

    At first glance, these bridal portraits look like they are straight out of a Japanese countryside. There’s a forgotten quality of film photography that is only achieved in digital photos with edits or filters these days. This styled photoshoot that was shot with a Kodak Portra400 and Canon Eos55 created the perfect dreamy vibe for this couple, and one would never have guessed that it was done right here in Batu Pahat, Johor! It’s amazing what a little creative styling and an old-fashioned film camera can do. Many thanks to Rayson Lo and Yandha Goh of Sanren Studio for this wonderful set of photos.
