    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 Subtly Elegant and Modern Intimate Wedding at The RuMa Hotel & Residences

    We often make the mistake of thinking that a small wedding has to mean something simple and lacklustre, but these newlyweds and wedding planner, Sherly of Tie The Knot, did exactly the opposite, achieving a wedding celebration that was both intimate and oh-so-glamorous. Amidst the lush backdrop of flowers and greenery was the understated elegance of a gilded geometric arch – we love how it peeks out as part of the backdrop while the couple exchanged their vows! Many thanks to MunKeat Photography for this beautiful set of photos!

    A White and Green Rustic Forest Wedding At Tanah Larwina, Selangor

    Imagine tying the knot with your beloved at a farmhouse, surrounded by lush rainforest and with the sound of a babbling brook in the background. Wouldn’t that be the most peaceful spot? These newlyweds made their wedding so personal and cosy by having their solemnisation and wedding reception on none other than the bride’s family farm at Hulu Langat. With the help of the bride’s mum, this classic all-white look was made complete with warm wood tones and rustic DIY touches. Many thanks to Jasmine. A Photography for capturing this breathtaking set of wedding photos!

    Laidback Bridal Portraits at Metal Bees

    The studio shoot has been redefined once again, proving that with the right team, it can be amazing. Why deal with unpredictable weather when you can control the lighting and mood indoors?

    The Wedding Notebook Magazine October 2019 – Issue 28

    Be it a glam or contemporary wedding, whether it’s held in a vintage loft somewhere in the countryside or outdoors at a destination far away, simplicity is the new norm. White flowers and lush greenery paired with muted or pastel shades seems to be the way to go, and it’s easy to see why. Intimate weddings that allow bridal couples to focus on the important details are also a favourite, with brides embracing minimalism even when it comes to their wedding gowns. Speaking of wedding gowns, don’t miss the hottest looks from Fall 2020, including bows and one-shoulder dresses. Meanwhile, a wedding photographer tied the knot with his sweetheart, and…

    Boho Chic With A Pop Of Orange At The Andaman Langkawi

    Facing the Andaman Sea is The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort, Langkawi, home to one of the most beautiful natural private beaches on the island. Perfect for your destination wedding, The Andaman is also a resort that believes in sustainability and preserving the environment. You won’t find any single-use plastic straws (instead, wheat straws are preferred), and their food is sourced locally. Textures such as dried leaves, wildflowers and pampas grass are one way to add a bohemian yet dreamy, romantic vibe to a beach wedding. We love the ornate circle arch framing the bride and groom against the muted neutral colours of the beach and sky, while the bright…

    Romantic Floral Themed Studio Bridal Portraits

    While most of us tend to opt for outdoor bridal portraits, not least for the natural lighting, we are all at the mercy of the weather and its unpredictability. Fortunately for this couple, Joshua Koh of Joshua Koh Photography and Sherly of Tie the Knot were able to bring the outdoors inside, thanks to their liberal use of flowers, minimal props, and beautiful lighting. The results are light and sweet, invoking a sense of spring, which is appropriate given that spring is the season of love, after all. What a fresh take on studio bridal portraits, and we love the bride’s gorgeous asymmetrical hem bridal gown with pockets! Sherly of…
