    A Whimsical and Glamorous Wedding in Ilocos Sur, The Philippines

    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! Their persistence paid off at last – in an intimate gathering of just 42 people, they exchanged vows and were pronounced husband and wife. 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! Aloiza: “While this might sound cliché, every moment of our wedding day was memorable, for it was everything we hoped for and more. “Our love…

    An Impromptu Silver and Blue Church Wedding

    For many couples, a postponement of their wedding was inevitable when the pandemic hit. With Bianca and Modesto, however, they decided to bring forward their wedding date and just tie the knot anyway! Saying ‘I do’ to the love of your life really just needs the both of you, a handful of witnesses (loved ones and family), and the priest to officiate. Standing before just 10 guests and with social distancing protocols in place, they pulled it off! That didn’t mean they had to compromise on the décor and flowers or their wonderful day. With the mothers of the bride and groom looking resplendent in their grey-blue gowns and the…

    Black and White Film Noir Bridal Portraits at The Henry Hotel, Pasay City, Manila

    The touch of film noir in this photoshoot is just… sexy. Despite three date changes due to unforeseen circumstances in scheduling, these photos that were taken at The Henry Hotel in Pasay City, Manila, are truly fantastic. Before we go on, kudos to Chyv of MangoRed for these stunning images! The groom is a pilot based outside of Manila, which made scheduling tricky since the shoot had to be planned around his schedule. They finally managed to get it done – just six days before the wedding! Not surprisingly, their wedding guests loved the unique and refreshing take on bridal portraits.

    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…

    Simple, Spontaneous And Stunning Beach Engagement Shoot In Mariveles, Bataan

    While it’s fair to say that engagement shoots are quite subjective – some are eager to do it, others aren’t – this Filipino couple’s sheer joy at their experience (and each other) is clear to see. Even though they were but two subjects on a sandy plane, they managed to infuse so much life into this simplistic shoot at sunny Sisiman Lighthouse in Mariveles, Bataan. Even better, they managed to keep the cost low too. “While we’ve seen other couples spend a lot on their engagement shoots, we didn’t even have a stylist or any props. When we created our moodboard, we just wanted something light and not too dramatic,…
