    A Rustic Chic, Dusty Pink Vineyard Wedding in the Yarra Valley

    With deep, moody hues set against bright white blooms, and dark eucalyptus leaves contrasting textured wheat stalks, this chic wedding was simply gorgeous! The ivy-covered walls and warm wooden textures were the perfect backdrop, and we especially love the ceiling bouquet of flowers that took the place of a chandelier! The bride looked absolutely resplendent in her lacy bridal gown and classic jewellery, and the entire bridal party was truly a sight to behold. Many thanks to Jasmine A. Photography for this unbelievably beautiful set of photos.

    A Boho Chic, Wes Anderson-inspired Wedding at Janda Baik

Full of decorative rugs and feathers, the newlyweds paid homage to Anderson’s quirky and distinctive aesthetic, from the colour palette and the décor to even his trademark symmetry.

    A Dreamy Bohemian Garden Wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu

    So much of this wedding was infused with the newlyweds’ own style and quirky personality. Against a colour palette of whites and nudes, other elements such as the golden plates, decorative branches and geometric vases added a dramatic flair. We love the bride’s beautiful lace bridal grown, paired with a bold vampy lip, and the groom’s unusual beige double-breasted suit! Complementing the couple were the bridal party’s coordinating outfits – blouse and skirt combos for the pretty bridesmaids and dark suits for the dapper groomsmen. Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali is known for its serene location overlooking the ocean, and indeed it is a picture perfect place to tie the…

    Blush And Brass Garden Wedding At Alila Villas Uluwatu Bali

    It was as much a reunion as it was a wedding celebration for Ken Eun and Min Chung. We love how this South Korean couple living in New York had a most intimate garden wedding at Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia. Planning a destination wedding can be a stressful affair, especially with the remote sourcing and organising, but kudos to this awesome bride for pulling it off so beautifully. Many thanks to DiktatPhotography for these mesmerising photos! Kee Uen was browsing on Pinterest when she fell in love with the blush on green theme. Combining bronze, brass and tan with varying shades of blush, the couple’s wedding was a…

    An East-Meets-West Vineyard Wedding In France

    Vineyards are the perfect venue for an intimate wedding, and we love how this couple infused their personality, story and heritage into their nuptials. Besides the subtle inclusion of the bride’s half-Indian heritage and the groom’s creative designs, they also included their friends and family, as well as utilised the romantic outdoor space to the fullest. Keeping their décor minimal to enhance the French vineyard setting, they used lavender as part of the decorations and everything just came together beautifully. Many thanks to Et Voila Weddings for another beautiful wedding and Caroline Cuinet Wellings of BlueCicada Photography for this incredible set of photos. The bride was truly resplendent and the…

    Enchanted Forest Wedding At Gita Bayu

    This couple sealed their 10-year friendship with ‘I do’s, and everything about their wedding fell into place just the way she wanted it. We love how the bride worked creatively within her budget to come up with such a beautiful wedding. And of course, a good wedding photographer is a must. Hui Wen: “The night before our wedding, the forecast was rain. As I was making my way to Gita Bayu, I felt sick to the stomach looking at the swirling dark clouds. I was mentally beating myself up for not opting for a clear tent as a Plan B. I was so nervous and worried the whole morning! Nonetheless,…

    60s Style Glam

    This contemporary young couple in Shenzhen were determined to go against conventional wedding trends. For the gatecrashing ceremony, the bride wore a short, retro dress and a birdcage veil. She kept the guest list relatively small, turning the rooftop of The Langham Hotel into a romantic garden for their wedding, which was followed by an after party. From these photos that were beautifully captured by Chris Spira, one thing’s for sure: Vien and Michael look like they thoroughly enjoyed their big day. Weddings like this one are what we hope to see more.

    Top 10 Favourite Shoe Designers For Brides

    Here’s a roundup of the top 10 shoe designers that brides choose. Take note of what these brides are wearing, and how they have paired their bridal gowns with their shoes.

We hope this gives you a better idea of the different styles of shoes that these designers carry. Jimmy Choo and Badgley Mischka seem to be the hot favourites, mainly because of their wide range of designs. We have also provided…
