    Nature-Filled Engagement Portraits in the Hidden Gem that is Bako National Park, Sarawak

    Inspired by this couple’s love for the outdoors, filled with sentimentality and untouched beauty, these engagement portraits perfectly capture the artistry of Mother Nature. Shot on an island that is part of Bako National Park, the fine sand beaches, dramatic granite rocks and exposed tree roots formed the most spectacular backdrop. We love the bride-to-be’s super chic outfit as well – a slouchy white suit jacket with a maxi skirt and wide-brimmed hat. Many thanks to Andy Phe Photography for this breathtaking set of photos!

    A Traditional Yet Glamorous Blush Pink Wedding in Sarawak

    It’s not often that we get to feature an Iban wedding, and this one was beautifully put together, from the cosy and intimate celebrations with close friends and family to the open reception that included everyone in Kapit. What’s even more amazing is that a clear theme was maintained throughout – the blush, grey and light gold palette tastefully brought together with textures such as drapery, florals and other traditional elements. Many thanks to Andy Phe of Bespoke Photographics and Melia Linggi of the Tun Jugah Foundation for all the important information on Iban weddings and customs. Amanda: “The theme for our church blessing was ‘Rustic Garden’. Our altar stage…

    Breezy, Laid-Back Wedding In Cove 55, Sarawak

    Classy meets casual in this radiant, tender wedding held in Santubong, Sarawak, amidst a setting of lush greens and white roses. Henry was sharp and dapper in a lapis blue suit while Liv glowed and sparkled in a stunning barebacked gown. The atmosphere was soft and relaxed yet splashed in glamour and style. As the rose-covered letters of their initials reflected off the water of a nearby pool, delicate flowers and fairy lights danced in the night in a wash of heliotrope. The stately colonial architecture of Cove 55 was also the perfect enchanting backdrop to the Iban Ngajat dancers and this beautiful couple’s whimsically Malaysian alfresco reception. Hats off…

    A Beautiful Garden Wedding At Cove55

    Cove55 is a gorgeous venue as it is; the pink flowers draped from the tree and beautiful white benches make it just perfect for a garden wedding. We are truly in love with this place, so thanks, Fabulous Moments, for sharing this set with us. Angel: “We just wanted a simple, happy, heartwarming and touching wedding.

    Glamorous Outdoor Wedding At Cove 55

    This venue is impeccable – a garden, a poolside setting and a beachfront wedding all in one space. We adore the all white décor with a hint of colour here and there, just enough to add some texture while keeping it glamorous. Due to the unpredictable weather in our country, the bride opted for a transparent marquee tent, and was rewarded with blue skies and a beautiful view. Thanks for the photos, Hollywood Bridal, and thank you, Vanessa, for showing us that a wedding doesn’t need to be perfect as long as everybody has a great night. Vanessa: “It is going to be hard to forget this one. You always…
