    Modern Meets Classic

    The talented Adam Ong Photography recently flew out to London in Malaysia Airlines with a lucky WAF (Weddings.Arts.Fashion) winner for a post-wedding photoshoot. While there, they also visited the beautiful city of Bath, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site city. It’s the only place in the UK where you can bathe in natural hot spas and original Roman-style baths, making it the ultimate spa break destination. The group stayed at YTL’s new and first hotel in the UK, The Gainsborough Bath Spa – and we have the photos.

    Rustic Industrial

    At the recent WAF2015, Bliss & Glitz put together a romantic, rustic industrial look at Zebra Square, complete with a good mix of vintage furniture and beautiful blossoms. We totally adored the vintage décor, especially the mobile drinks station.

    Bohemian Love

    You might have noticed that the bohemian theme is a hot trend right now, even for bridal collections. Natasha from The Peak Xperience came up with this simple, lovely interpretation of the theme at WAF2015. She sure did a lot with just one corner, and we can only imagine how beautiful it would all look if she had a bigger space to work with.

    Alia Bastamam 2015 Bridal Collection

    Alia Bastamam’s new bridal collection might be a little different from her usual minimalist style, but as always, it still took our breath away. Inspired by the 1935 silent dance film ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Bastamam’s latest gowns are light and youthful with a slightly whimsical feel, in a beautiful palette of white with shadows of dusty pink and champagne. “You finally get to be the princess you’ve always wanted to be,” explains Bastamam. “That’s why I decided to have a fairytale back story and make the collection ethereal – it’s definitely a bit more extravagant than usual.” Hand-sewn embellishments add sparkle and a hint of bohemian charm, while elements…
