    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…

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine April 2021 – Issue 34

    Fuss-free and light-hearted weddings take centre stage this issue, as we share stories of couples who kept things intimate with a small reception – or ditched their reception in favour of a photography session. When it comes to wedding venues, your imagination is your limit, from the traditional cathedral or ballroom to a boutique hotel or even the Tipi Tent at Night Safari in Singapore.

    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…
