    A White and Green Rustic Chic Outdoor Wedding by the Ocean at Khayangan Estate Bali

    We were absolutely enchanted by the rustic charm and natural surroundings of this gorgeous ocean wedding at Khayangan Estate in Bali, Indonesia. The couple felt that Uluwatu’s amazing views and seclusion from the crowds and busy areas would be perfect for the intimate wedding they desired, and they were right. Thank you for these wonderful images, Iluminen!

    Dreamy Nature Bridal Portraits in Shirakawa, Japan

    Autumn shades are more than just breathtakingly beautiful; they also signify change, which makes them the best backdrop for a couple looking to document their own change of relationship status. We just can’t get enough of Mother Nature’s resplendent beauty, captured here in dreamy auburn colours and deep earth tones. Many thanks to Quarter A Photography for this gorgeous set of photos, which set the couple against the unspoiled backdrop of Shirakawa, Japan.

    An Outdoor Wedding Reception At Zebra Square

    These photos reminded us of WAF2015, and we couldn’t help but smile. It was great seeing how the familiar props were used different for this wedding. Thanks for this lovely set, Iyao Photography; it’s refreshing to see an outdoor wedding reception in Malaysia.

    Indoor Garden Wedding At Pietro Ristorante Italiano

    We all love the idea of an outdoor wedding, but there is so much to worry and stress about, not the least of which being the weather. Luckily, this couple decided to spare themselves all that worry. Thanks to Jenny Sun for this set of photos, and Mint Events & Soirees for putting together yet another fabulous celebration.

He proposed in the Napa Valley after three years of courtship. This is more than just another beautiful wedding shoot by Chris Spira; it also provides great insight into the bride’s wedding planning process. Bride: “We wanted a simple, cosy and intimate wedding. We wanted all our guests to get together for a holiday and hang out as a big family somewhere relaxing and calm, somewhere that most people hadn’t been to.

    Walk On The Wild Side

    While bridal portraits taken in Europe are certainly very romantic, there’s also something to be said for couples who want to dive the deep seas or climb mountains. Thanks to Axioo, we got to share this amazing couple, Estelita and Kenny’s, journey. Thank you for taking the road less travelled and showing us that it’s all right to be yourselves.

    Classic Elegance

    We are always captivated by how majestic churches in the Philippines are. Walking through those grand entrances and down the aisles must be every little girl’s dream. When it was her turn, Larae looked effortlessly elegant in her Monique Lhuillier long trail gown and cathedral veil. The couple chose a season-less neutral palette, and we love how thoughtful they were to personalise gifts for each member of their bridal party, right down to the little ones. We can imagine how cool it must have been for each of the guests to get a flipbook from the photobooth, and how amazing the after party was, where the older guests danced to…
