    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…

    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!

    Indoor Wedding with Bohemian Touches at Glasshouse at Seputeh

    What an amazing ambience this couple achieved at Glasshouse at Seputeh! It had the cosiness of an indoor wedding with the bonus of a well-crafted outdoor feel. Thank you for the lovely shots, Chong Yee Photography. The newlyweds set out to put together a bohemian themed wedding, was made possible by Pax Floral and Signature Moments. They opted for neutral colours, as they did not want anything too bright, and decided on Glasshouse at Seputeh as their venue.

    A Spontaneous Post-Quarantine Family Lunch At JOLOKO, Kuala Lumpur

    This couple’s love story has understated romance and spontaneity sprinkled throughout, right from the time they first met to how they decided to tie the knot! Because of Covid-19 and their being based in Singapore during the Circuit Breaker, they weathered 14 days of quarantine so they could come back to Malaysia just for their ROM! There was no theme, just a celebration of love and their two families coming together. With a cosy gathering of just 20 people, they toasted to their union as they embarked on the next chapter. This lovely set of photos was beautifully captured by Jasmine A. Photography. The Wedding: “We had zero concept. All…
