    The Wedding Notebook Magazine July 2020 – Issue 31

    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…

    A Dreamy Blue Grey, Terra Cotta Infused Cliff-Top Styled Shoot in the Philippines

    Wow, the elements of this styled shoot truly blew us away! From the pebble beach and the crashing waves to the lush forests and dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean, there is no better backdrop than Mother Nature. Completing this look are the bride and groom’s outfits, including the bride’s long train and veil, which helped to add serenity and dreaminess to the overall effect. We love the chic use of the geometric arch, not to mention the terra cotta cutlery and crockery, and the blue grey touches for a pop of colour. Kudos to Cuckoo Cloud Concepts for making this happen, together with the beautiful florals by Vatel Manilla, and…

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine January 2018 – Issue 21

    From bringing the great outdoors indoors to folding a thousand origami cranes, all of this issue’s bridal couples agree on one thing: the best part about their wedding experience is the opportunity to share the journey together. We encourage you to savour these stunning photos and read the stories behind them. Most of all, we hope you catch the spirit of these beautiful smiles and joyful celebrations. On a more stylish note, be inspired by a couple’s high fashion bridal portraits that are worthy of a magazine editorial.

    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…

    A Romantic Rustic Eco Chic Wedding

    Without a wedding planner and with only 60 days to prepare, Cheeky and Shea pulled off a pretty awesome peach and green rustic party. Her dress looked awesome with that gold sash, and that garden overlooking a beach was downright romantic and truly every girl’s dream. Thanks, Marlon Capuyan for sharing this lovely wedding with us. Cheeky: “Everything was memorable that day, but the most memorable for me was exchanging vows of commitment with the man that God has so cleverly chosen for me, before Him, our family and very close friends. I had never been so happy in my entire life. I couldn’t stop smiling from ear to ear…

    Green And Yellow Tropical Theme

    This is a styled shoot for Giselle and Evahn’s five-year anniversary. It is lovely that the couple chose to celebrate their anniversary with a photoshoot, and it’s even more wonderful when there is a nice spread, done by Cuckoo Cloud Concepts, before them. All they had to do was enjoy the moment together while Marlon Capuyan captured their celebration of this milestone in their lives. The green and yellow tropical tea party theme was totally refreshing. Those mini pineapples on the cake and watercolour touches were just perfect.

    Boho Chic

    About 280 guests gathered for the wedding of these two photographers, Mildred and Marlon. Decorated with beautiful vintage paraphernalia, the reception was everything the couple wanted – the perks of working in the wedding industry and having friends who understood exactly what they wanted for their wedding. Mildred: “We wanted to have a very laidback wedding; something that’s not too formal and constricted. A bohemian wedding with a touch of vintage was outright perfect for our personalities. It’s a good thing working in the wedding industry has its perks. We were able to work not only with colleagues but people from the industry whom we already consider friends. Because of…

    Colourful Bohemian-Themed Wedding

    We are falling in love with the wedding scene in the Philippines. Here’s a bohemian-themed wedding with a fun spectrum of colours that is filled with personal touches and yet is elegant. We adore the Polaroid seating cards featuring photos of famous on- and off-screen couples. And did we mention that the bride is Gizelle, one of the main forces behind Cuckoo Cloud Concepts? This wedding, carefully framed and presented by Marlon Capuyan Photography, will definitely light up a mundane week. Gizelle: “I have always injected a little boho into my life despite being in the city. When I met Harry, he was a bit uptight. Over the years, we’ve…
