    An Eco-conscious Wedding At Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, Singapore

    Is it any surprise that this couple’s socially responsible wedding was clever, fun and well received by family and friends? Ashley and Jarrod wanted a wedding that was socially conscious and that had a low environmental impact wherever possible. Instead of using fresh flowers, their florist came up with the brilliant idea of using dried flowers and opening up a herb bar where the flowers/herbs could be wrapped in a bouquet for guests to bring home as wedding favours. With the help of Ashley’s father, they also created a backdrop of recycled wooden pallets that was used for both the ceremony and the lunch reception in the church. Everyone was…

    Pre-Wedding Motorhome Adventure Across New Zealand

    New Zealand is well known for its scenic landscapes, and what a waste it would be if couples were to simply rush from one spot to another just for a few photographs. We love these photos for their sense of adventure and you can just feel the couple enjoying the experience. The idea behind your bridal portraits should be to make memories and capture your genuine love for each other, not to stage it. Indra of Iluminen: “This wasn’t a typical pre-wedding shoot, it was more of a ‘let’s go on an adventure’. We drove for hours listening to music and stopped at places that caught our interest. We parked…

    Botanicals, Blush And Dusty Blue At Nosh, Singapore

    Guided by their vintage botanical theme of neutral hues, greenery, and a touch of dusty blue and gold, Charis and Joshua put together a DIY wedding at the church where they grew up – Church of the Good Shepherd. It was indeed a labour of love for the couple and their friends, as they created the calligraphy musical backdrop, signs and wedding invitations. Many thanks to Bloc Memoire Photography for these precious memories! Weddings are a celebration of a couple’s union, but they are also in large part about the people who have been a part of that journey. We are always glad to see couples search for unique ways…

    DIY Wedding Of Gold, Pink And White At Cameron Highlands

    Fusing delicate peonies with elements of gold for their wedding, this couple went the DIY route – as much as they could. The groom, graphic designer and wedding photographer Andrew Yep, designed the invitations and stationery, and created direction boards using recycled wood and hand painted calligraphy. Meanwhile, the wedding favours were jars of locally produced strawberry jam. Thanks for these beautiful photos, Peter Herman Photography, and congratulations, Alice and Andrew! Our best wishes with you, and we’re so happy to see you both tie the knot.

    It was the high point of their lives, a splendid day filled with joy and thankfulness as the couple prepared to transition from courtship to marriage. The camaraderie and laughter, the happy tears, the pride on the parents’ faces, the elation of being pronounced “man and wife” – all these and more were part of this dignified celebration at Ungasan Clifftop Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. Cheers to the beginning of a new chapter, and many thanks to Punyan Photography for these meaningful captures!

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine October 2017 – Issue 20

    One of our favourite things about the weddings that we’ve seen this year is the way couples are breaking away from cookie cutter celebrations. Brides no longer look for only that which is beautiful, but they are beginning to find ways to infuse their personalities into their weddings and focus on what truly matters. Many are also choosing to make their big day a lighthearted affair and all about the people that they love. In this issue, you will see that our weddings have a “something different” section that shows how couples stepped away from convention. And check out the couple who drove around New Zealand in a motorvan for…
