“A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.” – By Max Muller

At The Louvre Bridal, every couple could check-in at their destination wedding. And Qiaowei & Liyan first stepped into The Louvre Bridal with a dream of going to Korea for their overseas pre-wedding photoshoot.

Just like every newly engaged couple,  they are spoilt with many choices and ideas for their wedding. During their first visit to our boutique back in 2012, the couple sat down with our experienced wedding advisor, Fion to share their initial ideas. Through the brainstorming session, the couple shared on how they wished to capture the of Korea landscapes and scenery.

Working on the ideas they had in mind, our team have developed it into an unique travel journal theme. “Let’s head to Korea for a 2-days photoshoot to capture the various popular Korea cultural places and cityscapes! Your wedding album will be personalized into a travel journal with special stamps designs.” says Fion. And with the couples’ trust in The Louvre Bridal to fulfill their dream for them, we are on our way to embark an overseas photoshoot adventure!

As compared to planning for a local pre-wedding photoshoot, an overseas pre-wedding photoshoot has so much more details to plan and take care. Thus, many research have been done to find out on best season to travel, the various photoshoot venues, and we also value added with some transportation and leisure research to help the couple! We believe that having a well-planned overseas photoshoot trip not only allows for a smooth photoshoot, it also allows couple and the team to enjoy the trip fully!

It was the early Spring period in Korea, and full of excitement, our team set off to Korea together!
Day 1 of the photoshoot, we set off for the photoshoot in the chilly morning! It’s as cold as 10 degrees in Seoul, Korea! And our brave bride made a great sacrific for her picture-perfect shots with our “Fleur Designer collection” with leaves peplum and a sexy bare back! We have one sweet groom with us here, taking care of his bride-to-be with hot drinks and coats, not letting her catch a cold. What a sweet sight!

As it is springtime, the budding cherry blossoms greeted us with a lovely sight to complement the photoshoot.

On Day 2, it was more light-hearted and casual dating snap at Everland and the heart of Seoul, Myeongdong streets.  Therefore we have picked a fun and fluffy cocktail gown to match the colorful theme park! Look at all the fun and candid moments captured. Trust us when we say that the mood when taking your pre-wedding photos is very different as compared to back in Singapore, because of the holiday moods. And that’s why all of us had so much fun throughout the photoshoot journey.

Everyone was drenched out of energy after the two consecutive days of shoot, but after the end of the photoshoot, it was time to say “Yummy Korean food and the shopping craze, here we come!!”

If you’re curious to take a peek on how our team works behind-the-scenes, we have some photos of the trip to share! In case you are wondering why Qiaowei & Liyan are surrounded by students and the passer-by just like they are K-pop celebrities, it is because it is not a common sight to see people taking outdoor wedding photos in Korea. No wonder the Koreans are so excited!

The Korea trip was so much fun and we are glad to bring back such great fun memories, and the close bond created with our lovely couple.

Having such a successful trip and having their Korea dream fulfilled, Qiaowei and Liyan continued to entrust their actual day bridal and wedding photography to The Louvre Bridal for a one-stop hassle free planning, knowing our background of 10 years experiences in wedding planning!

We are glad to be able to doll up Liyan into a gorgeous bride and capturing the happy and touching moments of their big day.

Rejoicing with Jovan & Jurine // Korean Fairytale Theme Wedding

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-korea“Will you marry me? ” – Jovan
“I do” – Jurine

From Korea to Singapore, Jovan and Jurine had a one-stop wedding journey with The Louvre Bridal. Being a K-pop fan, the couple had a Korean inspired theme for their wedding.

The journey began with a trip to Seoul for their Korean Concept pre-wedding photoshoot in Springtime, where the weather was cooling and a scenic spring landscape. The good thing about enjoying the authentic Korean wedding photoshoot is not only about what Korea has to offer through its changing four seasons, but also a unique experience.
Preparing for a Korea pre-wedding shoot trip is simple, because all that you’ll need will be provided at the studios. Imagine the big poofy gowns and groom’s tuxedos.

Jovan and Jurine enjoyed their Korean wedding photoshoot with a Cottage theme studio. Before we take a look at pictures from their wedding album, we shall take a sneak peek into what happens behind the scenes.

Oh look at the adorable puppies they’re holding! That’ll make a very interactive photoshoot “prop”. And the massive outdoor solemnization march-in setup! The huge cottage studio has so many props and backdrop for the couples to explore!
Here’s the turnout of the Korea wedding album!

The Louvre Bridal Singapore_Korea Concept Wedding Photo_01The Louvre Bridal Singapore_Korea Concept Wedding Photo_02The couple also got featured in a KTO article, on The Sunday Times 19 october 2014, sharing their experience about their photoshoot experience and being treated like Celebrities for a day! 

Hear what Jurine has to say about her Korea wedding experience:

“The concept brought to us by The Louvre Bridal  was perfectly tailored for Hubby and me. First of all, the actual Korean bridal photos always have the Wow factor which we both believe that it must be done by the actual Korean photographers and Korean makeup artiste.

Louvre’s Korean partner has it all, their own comfortable bridal studio where I get to select the gowns, had my magical makeup done and most impressive of all they had their own indoor studio, outdoor garden and cottage house. The outdoor garden are decorated with different themes and best of all, they had pet dogs and rear sheep and donkey which can be participants in our wedding photos. Fear not if you need a translator, Korean studio have a volunteer (who works for the bridal and who speaks English) to translate for us out of goodwill. Perfect!

At Louvre bridal, our wedding coordinator cleared our doubts on the process with a ‘We got married’ clip (reality variety show), the Korean studio that we are going to visit, took part in this show thus it was the best assurance of quality to wedding couples like us. She was kind and patience explaining all the questions I had. Louvre team worked hard on researching and coordinating. Working with them for our Korean photography felt like an adventure that we look forward to.

Upon reaching Korea studio, our comfort and welfare are their top priority, nothing is compromised within that high efficiency level they had. Management of time to them was having 2 pairs of hand on your hair (styling it like a princess braid), makeup was done concurrently and the Korean coordinator had sharp eyes to select the ideal gown for me. The experienced photographer created the atmosphere for projection of our expression. The pet dogs: ShaSha, Judy and Judy’s puppies were very interactive and posed well for our shoots. After the photography session ends, we selected the photos on the day itself. Hubby and I do not feel tired at all as we were very well taken care of by them.

The day when we received our album at The Louvre Bridal, we were thrown back to the enjoyable time once again while flipping our album. All our micro expression was captured beautifully. Kamsahamnida to all the people in the korean studio! It’s an everlasting memory for hubby and me.”

For a hassle free wedding, Jovan & Jurine entrusted our team for their actual day too, from gowns, suits, makeup, flowers and actual day photography. See how Jurine has incorporated the Running man idea for the xiongdis and jiemeis’ T-shirts. We love how the wackiness of the gatecrashing games and candid expressions were all captured.

For a dreamy and fairytale like wedding, Jovan & Jurine found their perfect dream gowns and suits for their wedding. The A-line white gown on Jurine drapes beautifully gown to a soft ruffles train. The eye-catching turquoise ballgown sparkles as she makes her second entrance, princess perfect with a matching tiara!

Happiness is always around with the lovely couple, always beaming with sunshine smiles while exchanging gazes into each other’s eyes. Let’s reminisce the couple’s joyful wedding with this Express Photo Highlights, which was also showcased during the wedding dinner for guests to enjoy the morning session for fetching the bride.

With a one stop wedding with The Louvre Bridal, here’s our couple’s kind words:

“Hubby and I were impressed by Fion’s professional introduction of every individual piece of gown, telling us the story behind each gown collection during our first visit to Louvre bridal. We are glad that we met and signed up with such an enthusiastic bridal service provider.

Subsequently, Yee Lou follow-up with us for all the wedding preparation. She’s very detailed and proactively makes comments and suggestions for us which we find it useful. We like her smile and service. Heartfelt thanks to her patience that make our wedding preparation journey so smooth.

Makeup artiste Christine makes an effort to understand my concerns and need for bridal makeup. She perfectly matches each set of hair styling and makeup for my selected gowns. She will go the extra mile in assisting the bride on the actual day.

Photography by our main photographer Lawrence are impressive and of good quality. He’s experienced and we know our actual day moment will be captured and in safe hand. Photos are memories for a lifetime, don’t you agree that we should not compromise anything for it. 🙂 That’s the reason for having a second photographer Gordon, we had lots of fun during the photography session.

We had a pleasant experience with Louvre bridal. Tons of compliments flood in by relatives and friends on my actual day gowns. I believe many years down the road, when hubby and I look at the photos, it definitely bring back fond memories. Thanks to the committed team in Louvre Bridal.”

Rejoicing with Desmond & Kailun // Colorful Zest Theme Wedding

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-National Musuem

“After 10 years, the ♥ story continues.” – By Desmond & Kailun

Every wedding is special. Today we are sharing the wedding journey for Desmond & Kailun, from their pre-wedding bridal photography to actual day wedding. Our young couple have come a long way, dating for 10 years, and now continuing their next chapter of life as husband and wife. Bring a young and vibrant pair, this was also the theme to their wedding. Let’s take a look at the zestful couple’s wedding pictures.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Picnic theme

Kailun have picked a beautiful fishtail shaped wedding gown, which elongates her slim body. The soft ruffles train also make a gorgeous contrast in the pictures, along with a super long veil. The ombre-toned blue and green evening gown stands out against the photoshoot backdrop at the Singapore National Musuem. Despite being a simple straight cut gown, its flowy layers dances with the wind, creating a grand effect!

On a side note, here’s sharing a bridal dress tip: Many Singapore brides may not be open about having a body hugging gown, afraid that it might make the tummy area seemed bulging. However, some mermaid wedding gowns are designed with in-built corset, which shapes up the body perfectly. So brides-to-be, do consult our Image consultants during your fitting session for gown styles that go with your body shape!The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-GardensbythebayThe-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Gardensbythebay2The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-National Musuem2A decade after the romance blossomed, Desmond and Kailun held their wedding celebration at the new Park Royal Pickering. Having tried on the feminine fishtail white gown for her pre-wedding, the bride selected a different look for her actual day. Both ballgowns for a grand 1st and 2nd march-in. The white ballgown was a stunner from all angles, a sparkling tinted tulle layer on the front, and a cascading peplum organza flowing into a long train. The 2nd piece was an icy blue piece with such magnificent tulle layers.  We were so happy when Kailun shared how everyone complimented her looks that day. 🙂

With strong rapport and a friendship developed with the photographer, they have decided to entrust their pre-wedding and actual day to the same professional. Let’s check out their actual day photos!

“We would like to thank The Louvre Bridal team for their personalized service and advice when it comes to bridal gown selection. Our guests were awed by the designs of the wedding gowns on our big day! Special thanks to Yee Lou for her dedicated service in helping us plan and coordinate both our pre wedding and actual day shoot. We would also like to thank our make up artist, Christine for going the extra mile to discuss on the various makeup and hairstyling options with my wife prior to the wedding. Lastly, we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to our photographer, Coffee for capturing those memories for us to treasure always. Both of us were very impressed by the way he handled the photo shoot. It was fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during both pre and actual day shoot. We would definitely recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a photographer for their wedding!

Rejoicing with Kenny & Melissa // Parisian Love Theme Wedding

Real Wedding Cover Pic

“Paris is always a good idea. ” – By Audrey Hepburn

From the breathtaking pre-wedding shots against Eiffel Tower to the intimate solemnization to seal the promises of love, right up to the actual day grand affair, everything about Kenny & Melissa’s wedding was amazing.

We’ve always see Kenny & Melissa as a romantic couple through their wedding journey with The Louvre Bridal. Here’s sharing the lovely couple’s beautiful moments.

Right from the first meet up with the couple, they were sure to be checking in at Paris for their pre-wedding photoshoot. To experience something personalized, the photoshoot venues and gowns were carefully discussed and picked to match the theme and feel of photoshoot.  The iconic landmarks of Paris were all captured beautifully by one of our International Award Winning Photographer, Coffee. The style of the shoot was more naturalistic, making the couple comfortable throughout the photoshoot, still able to enjoy the city of love light and romance at the same time.   Melissa picked a gown sleek and elegant, which was easy to handle during the shoot, and matched perfectly against the Eiffel Tower. Venturing through the Parisian streets and stopping by the cafes, Melissa had a short gown with oriental lace details and a illusion neckline for the leisure shoot.

The pastel pink evening gown styled with a side hairdo was every bit alluring.

Shortly after the Paris trip was the couple’s solemnization event. With a garden theme, the event took place at Villa Halia. To match the theme, the bride and groom were styled in white. The gown on Melissa was a tulle white gown with a hi low hem. She could mingle around easily in this light gown with a soft tulle train following. Something eye catching was definitely the rainbow rose bouquet, simply outstanding!

And finally it was the big day.   The theme for the actual day was kept classy and with a tinge of the Parisian feel. For the day look, the makeup was kept clean and hair in an braided updo. Melissa looked absolutely stunning in the off shoulder gown with lace bodice. Her bouquet of calla lilies added the perfect elegance touch. The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Actual-Wedding-Day-Photography
The grand wedding affair took place at the Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa. A perfect place for Kenny & Melissa’s classy and elegant wedding.

The happy couple is now ready for their next chapter of lives together, with well wishes from all their friends and families.

With a one stop wedding with The Louvre Bridal, here’s our couple’s kind words:

“Our experience with The Louvre Bridal has been a long and interesting journey. I would definitely like to thank Yee Lou for all the coordination be it for pre-wedding shots, ROM, or actual day, She has been very accomodating to us, even though we had alot of changes, and was always a joy to work with.

Coffee went to Paris with us for our photoshoot and we were very glad that we chose to work with him. He is very easy-going and most professional always, finding angles and poses and taking just one extra shot before we move on to the next location. Do continue to eat more!!

Thank you Louvre for the wonderful experience!”

Our makeup artist have also shared a message from Melissa:

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Customer Testimonial Review

We give the warmest well wishes to our couple, Kenny & Melissa. It is our pleasure to help you through your once-in-a-lifetime. We cherish the friendship built and it was always fun to have both of you at our studio for the discussions and fittings.
We were deeply touched by your macaroons gift all the way from Paris to Singapore! Hand carry to pass us right after you touched down and before leaving for another overseas trip the very same same day. The macaroons were sweet, but not as sweet as the thought from both of you! 🙂

May you have many blissful years ahead!

Rejoicing with Sherman & Sheena // Something Blue Theme Wedding

The Louvre Bridal Singapore_Real Theme Wedding_10Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”

Take a couple of moments to bask in the glow of a sunshine-filled pre-wedding shoot that reminds us just how beautiful our country is. Having a nostalgic theme for the pre-wedding photos, get out of the urban jungle with Sherman & Sheena as they have their shots taken at the only kampong left in Singapore, Kampong Buangkok and the vintage themed cafe, The Coastal Settlement. The whole photoshoot was personalized to their preferences and likings. Wedding photo shoots not necessarily have to be prim and proper. Look how much fun Sherman & Sheena had for their unique wedding shots!

This duo will have a lifetime of lovely ahead of them, and we get to see a snippet of it all unfolding here, beautifully captured by our International Award Winning Photographer!

The wedding celebration was made intimate and personal, where the couple exchanged their vows at One Rochester on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Every detail of the wedding speaks the theme of “Something Blue”, perfected with sprinkles of purple and white.
More and more couples are in for the idea if an intimate celebration rather than hosting a banquet as it allows the couple to spend more time with each of the guests.

Check out the highlights of the wedding event specially covered by our Photographer:
