When inspiration comes in the form of a shoot as lovely as this vintage inspired shoot, you’ll find us in a corner quietly but happily smitten the day away. Oh how we love and live for pretty inspirations. With the sweetest vintage details, a stylish pastel palette, gorgeous vintage gowns from La Comme Vintage Wedding, florals from Lemongrass Weddings that are beyond pretty, a cameo from the cutest furry friend and beautiful images from Jenny Tong Photography, it’s the perfect way to start the day.
Jenny Tong Photography shares, “This is without a doubt my favourite session I’ve ever shot. I was absolutely smitten with this glamorous vintage wedding gowns, the beautiful bouquet and this lovely couple. I want to say than you to the great team of artists that brought this shoot to life. This shoot meant a lot to me!”
We’re finding it hard to contain our excitement today because Nigel and Weiqi’s wedding combines some of our favourite creative tidbits to bring us a gorgeously succulent intimate celebration in Singapore. The succulent chalk planters, chalkboard signage, stationery prints, confetti and wooden place cards, to name a few are what I’m talking about and best thing yet? Being creatives in the industry themselves, Nigel and Weiqi took upon themselves to DIY all these aspects and aren’t they just amazing?! Talk about a talented pair of green thumbs! We love everything about their intimate DIY wedding day and in particular, the wonderful images captured by Androidinboots and amazing florals by Fiona Treadwell. Thank you for sharing this beautiful celebration with us!
We should also mention that Nigel and Weiqi loved handcrafting their wedding so much, they’re now bringing this all to you with Common Hands. Check it out peachies! We know we will!
Felicia from Androidinboots shares, “Nigel and Weiqi both hold jobs in the creative industry, but never really worked together prior to their wedding. Though they had distinct thought processes and different ideas, they harmonized and made it work. He sourced and carved, she designed and painted. They handcrafted decorations for their wedding venue and personally made each and every favor to be gifted to the guests. And that’s what was most beautiful about it; getting down and dirty, doing things of significance together. The venue was fixed up to a tee and everything, from the calligraphy to the succulents, was a reflection of Nigel and Weiqi- rustic, spirited and radiant. Take away all the unnecessary stuff and we have a simple and lovely lunch with their closest ones and that was Nigel and Weiqi’s special day. In the end, that’s really all that matters right? Nigel and Weiqi enjoyed DIY-ing their decorations so much that they have now set up Common Hands, creating bespoke and quirky wedding stationery and gifts!”
If, like us, you have a soft spot and a huge love for all the beauty that Japan holds, then you’ll love every last detail of this gorgeous engagement session set in beautiful Kyoto. The mesmerizing images by Martin Aesthetics are nothing short of dreamy, and this couple is nothing short of adorable. Rich with tradition and culture, you can see why a beautiful country like Japan has become a popular destination chosen by couples for their engagements and weddings. It’s also not surprising to see bride-to-be Nicole immerse herself with the Japanese culture and don a stunning Kimono to spend the day with her love. Their love for each other shines bright under the beautiful cherry blossoms and takes out breath away. Scroll down and enjoy the beauty that will most definitely put a smile on your face. Oh did we mention there were sweet-as-button deers?!
Martin Aesthetics shares, “Nicole studied in Osaka for a few years and during her studies, she had always dreamed of having a photo shoot she had always dreamed of having a photo shoot amidst the cherry blossoms in Kyoto. She met Raymond when she returned from her studies to Hong Kong and dated for four years. They decided to get married next year so it was the perfect chance for her to fulfill her dreams of having a romantic shoot taken in Japan. Their shoot was like a dream come true!”
It’s no secret that we ADORE (like caps and all) the animated films created by the ever so talented team at Soymilk Wedding but they’ve truly outdone themselves this time with their adorable flipbooks! Featuring short and sweet little wedding animations that come to life by flipping the pages, now you must admit, that’s pretty cool. With three different storylines to choose from, couples can personalise the flipbook covers with their names, wedding details and preferred colour scheme. A brilliant save the date, invitation or wedding favour idea, we hope to see more couples embracing this fun and unique idea to give and share with their loved ones.
