    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…

    A Light-Filled, Minimalist Wedding with a Surprise Getaway at The Shorea!

    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! Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for capturing the joy of this beautiful celebration.

    A Subtly Elegant and Modern Intimate Wedding at The RuMa Hotel & Residences

    We often make the mistake of thinking that a small wedding has to mean something simple and lacklustre, but these newlyweds and wedding planner, Sherly of Tie The Knot, did exactly the opposite, achieving a wedding celebration that was both intimate and oh-so-glamorous. Amidst the lush backdrop of flowers and greenery was the understated elegance of a gilded geometric arch – we love how it peeks out as part of the backdrop while the couple exchanged their vows! Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for this beautiful set of photos!

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine October 2019 – Issue 28

    Be it a glam or contemporary wedding, whether it’s held in a vintage loft somewhere in the countryside or outdoors at a destination far away, simplicity is the new norm. White flowers and lush greenery paired with muted or pastel shades seems to be the way to go, and it’s easy to see why. Intimate weddings that allow bridal couples to focus on the important details are also a favourite, with brides embracing minimalism even when it comes to their wedding gowns. Speaking of wedding gowns, don’t miss the hottest looks from Fall 2020, including bows and one-shoulder dresses. Meanwhile, a wedding photographer tied the knot with his sweetheart, and…

    A Chic, Elegant and Minimalist Outdoor Wedding in Koh Samui

    Stunning views and island vibes make the perfect destination wedding setting, and this wedding is proof. Glamorous enough to be memorable yet casual enough that everyone was able to kick back and relax, it was the perfect balance. Keeping with the minimalist look, the couple opted for a gilded square adorned with white flowers as their “wedding arch” – a wedding trend that has been quite popular of late. Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for this beautiful set of photos.

    From the breathtaking blues of Santorini to sunsets overlooking the Venice canals, from a lush Australian vineyard to a cliff top wedding in Koh Samui – the wonders of Mother Nature never cease. We are so taken by the immense beauty found in this issue that we could gaze at the photos of these picture perfect destination weddings forever. One of the best things about destination weddings is that often, the picturesque landscapes and stunning spaces are enough all on their own. This reduces the decorating workload so that bridal couples can focus on what really matters – their guests, and one another. One need not travel far to experience…
