Jedis or Not, The Force Is Strong With This Duet!

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars08

It’s no wonder why it’s the 5th highest grossing film series in the market! Be it whether it’s your third time buying tickets for the recent release of the first film of the next Star Wars trilogy titled Star Wars : The Force Awakens, or your first time trying to YouTubeStar Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” to find out what you’ve completely missed out on, there’s definitely something intriguing in every Star Wars film to take home.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars02

However, if you’re not a Star Wars fan, you’ll probably be wondering, “what’s this hype all about?” With the first ever ground-breaking film from the Saga in 1977 till now, what keeps Star Wars fans so loyal is the originality and sense of wonder, totally unheard-of from a science fiction film.

Even our couple Michael & Tammy thinks so! Having a profound and strong honour for The Force, we brainstormed together with the duo to create their very own Star Wars pre-wedding photoshoot, right here in Singapore.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars01

If you and your beloved honour ‘The Force’ (don’t worry, we do too!), this shoot is bound to bring you into their alternate galaxy. If you close your eyes for a second and get ready your battle stance, you’ll probably imagine yourself fighting battles with Luke Skywalker.

Recreate your favourite scenes with your very own special props. Channel that source of pure energy from your secret weapons to create the magic in your wedding photos and all your friends and family would be so envious of you movie stars! Who wouldn’t raise a lightsaber to that?

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars03

Matching the right outfits to fit your protagonist statures definitely plays a part too! For brides, we suggest you put on a creamy white a-line dress or perhaps a sweetheart neckline gown with delicate lace detailing. With the right accessories, we can also create the extra touch with your styling and makeup for the modern sweet yet strong Princess Leia look!

For the grooms, go for a medium grey suit like Michael or any sleek classic black suit to illuminate the perfect sense of bravery. Together, you both will form a smartly dressed duo!

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars04
Like any movie, all characters need their leisure scenes too and you too can capture those with a casual shoot! When there are battles, there will always be instances to relax and enjoy too. Put on your widest smiles and bask in the serenity and harmony of your love.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars05

If you’re looking to be casted as ‘actors’ and ‘actresses’ into your very own favourite movie scenes, we can help you grant your wishes as we brainstorm and come up with new and creative ideas for the wedding photos which you may show your future young padawans.

Stunning Crowd Creates An Uproar At Weddings on the Bay Wedding Showcase

The-Louvre-Bridal-MBS-Wedding-Showcasel01Stepping into the grand ballroom, it was breathtaking. We remember being amazed by the vast amount of space the ballroom could hold. You would think that well obviously, because it is Marina Bay Sands after all but after seeing this place, we truly understand why most our wedding couples find this place a hit!

Being honoured to be the trusted bridal partner of many renowned hotels in Singapore, On 28th November 2015, we had yet another privilege to be invited to Sands Expo and Convention Centre for the “Weddings on the Bay” Wedding Showcase. The ballroom can hold thousands but what’s more interesting about the ballroom design is that it is versatile. If you’re looking for a venue just for your close family and friends, the ballrooms are also customizable to the number of guests you’re looking to invite for your actual day wedding. Whether you’re looking at 100 or 1000, you know where to go.

The-Louvre-Bridal-MBS-Wedding-Showcasel04

When we began setting up our booth, numerous trays of food were slowly brought out to fill the buffet line. It definitely caught our attention as we took a glimpse of it for probably too many seconds before continuing on our booth set up.

Neatly lined up, were bite-sized portions of what you can expect for your wedding day. Mini burgers, rolls stuffed with chicken and coleslaw, noodles, tempura prawns and many more were displayed for you to have an idea of which to pick for your luncheon or dinner banquet. If you wanted to know more, the banquet manager was ready to assist.The-Louvre-Bridal-MBS-Wedding-Showcasel02

It was bustling with excitement and activity when it came to the afternoon, as weds-to-be strolled in and admired the creative and exceptional setups displayed and beautiful flowers made us reminiscent of our previous couples who had their wedding banquets in Marina Bay Sands . Besides The Louvre Bridal, other vendors such as photography, photobooth and many more were all there so couples could confide in them in preparation for their special day.

Right from the start till the end of the wedding show, there was an overwhelming response of couples surrounding our booth. Our wedding advisors were there to give you useful tips and answer every couple’s queries on how to fulfill their dream wedding. Due to the large crowd, it was a pity, that some couples missed their consultation with us.

Rejoicing with Qiaowei & Liyan // Korea Travel Journal Theme Wedding

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_pre-wedding-photography-korea-seoul

“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!

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Overseas-Pre-Wedding-Photography-Seoul-PalaceThe photoshoot places for Day one were more of the iconic landmarks of Seoul, like the gyeongbokgung palace, the Bukchon Hanok village which has all the native Korean houses, and not forgetting the N Seoul Tower! As it is springtime, the budding cherry blossoms greeted us with a lovely sight to complement the photoshoot.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Overseas-Pre-Wedding-Photography-Seoul-Bukhon-Hanok-Village

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-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Korea-Behind the scenesthe-louvre-bridal-singapore_overseas-pre-wedding-photography-seoul

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.

Till the day when we finally delivered the actual day wedding photos to Qiaowei & Liyan, we must say it has been a really long journey of more than 1 year. And stage by stage, step by step to fulfil their dream wedding.

From their overseas pre-wedding to actual day bridal and photography accomplished by the team from The Louvre Bridal, we are happy to be part Qiaowei & Liyan’s wedding journey with well compliments received as shared below:

Customer Testimonial-QiaoweiLiyan

We have lots of feelings at this delivery, because they are already someone close to us. It’s a priceless friendship we had established through the wedding journey.

Dedicating to Qiaowei & Liyan:
“We hope you love every moment we eternalised for you! Without your initial trust, we would not have come so far with you till today! Thank you very much for being always so understanding and supportive to us!”

Creative Singapore Pre-wedding Photoshoot Ideas

The pre-wedding photoshoot is a great opportunity for brides and grooms-to-be to enjoy some fun planning and exercising some creativity. It is one of the first few fun adventures that you both embark on as an engaged couple. It is never easy to plan for a unique pre-wedding photoshoot, and it sure takes you some effort and to crack your heads for a special photoshoot theme to call your own.

Here at The Louvre Bridal, we strongly believe that each couple has their own unique love story, their unique personalities and ideas. Therefore, no couples would have the awkward situations of having repetitive or template photoshoots just like any others. This is your once-in-a-lifetime afterall. 😉

Feeling lost or scratching your heads for your upcoming pre-wedding photoshoot? Get inspired by some interesting concepts and unique ideas from our couples!

 

1. Eternal Knot
For fun & bubbly couple, Chong Meng & Yee Rae, they came to us with the idea of wanting a fun and wacky photoshoot as they “tie the knot”. Our team suggested them for a journey through the dating times and their common hobbies together. As we understood both of them and their love journey through the chats,  the discussions turned out to be a great photoshoot theme! It was never about posing in-front of the camera. It was something that the couple’s friends and families could share the joy with. For the photoshoot locations, we planned the fun adventure amid the natural landscapes and the contrasting urban cityscape.  To personalize it to the couple, we planned the photoshoot back to the place where they first met.

Tips: To achieve fun and wacky expressions, practice with your partner before the photoshoot and work out those muscles on your face for the perfect smiles, so you’d feel more confident with the camera on the day. The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Fun-Loving-theme2 The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Fun-Loving-theme

It sure brought back lots of memories for the dating times. As the sunset painted the sky with purple streaks, the couple was styled with a bold black gown and a charming white suit. Being back to places that hold special meanings, and doing something you both like (in this example, eating the local delights along Esplanade) makes the photoshoot extra heartwarming and memorable.

2. Maple Love Story
All gamers gather! Don’t you think Wei Rong & Jing Xian’s theme of Maple Love Story is one-of-its-kind? When the couple first came to The Louvre Bridal, they were pretty clueless about planning for their own wedding photoshoot. Through more chatting, we found out that the two had met each other through an online game, Maple Story. That was where we evolved the idea into their very own photoshoot theme!

The chapters of their pre-wedding photoshoot began with going to the movies, which was their dating hobby. Stepping into the theatre with popcorn and drinks, the movie unfolded into the Maple Story chapter.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Cinema-Theme-01 The-Louvre-Bridal-Singapore_Pre-Wedding-Photography-Cinema-Theme-02It wasn’t easy to remake the Maple Story world come alive, taking note the little details of styling the couple into their game characters and all the props preparation. We styled the couple up in a sweet pink cocktail gown, to mimic her game character and some DIY weapon props, not forgetting the monsters characters.

It sure took a lot of effort in planning the photoshoot schedule, as our team researched and proposed the suitable locations as the perfect backdrops for the Maple story world. Couples could leave the itinerary planning up to our team of dedicated coordinators to plan out. Check out the photos; don’t you agree that the pictures came alive with the  magical touch of the digital effects.

We styled the bride with a chiffon turquoise gown to bring out her candid personality, and it flowed perfectly to the evening sea breeze.

Tips: Finding the common interests and hobbies create the most memorable pre-wedding photoshoot theme that is solely yours to cherish.

3. Retro Fashion
The retro fever is running high on Kae & Heyzel. The couple came with the idea of sealing the remaining retro places before they disappear with the city’s fast developments. The modern duo added a zesty twist to their retrolicious photoshoot theme. We’ve planned out the old school places in Singapore, and a modern style for the bride and groom in contrast. Finding the last remaining places of Singapore with the retro and old school memories wasn’t easy. We cracked our heads and finally put together the best contrasting venues, each with a distinctive charm.

The shophouses with rich colours were definitely shortlisted at one of the photoshoot venue. We even had a trishaw rented to evoke the retro ambience from the 60’s! The bride, styled with an eye catching yellow and black laced ballgown,  matched with the groom in a modern checkered black suit stood out from the brightly colored backdrops.  The makeup was kept clean with bold red lips and hair bun up in a low pony tail.

No, we didn’t travel to Pulau Ubin for the kampong scenes. We found the last kampong in Singapore, and it’s called Kampong Buangkok. For such a unique photoshoot location, Heyzel put on an ombre gown with pastel streaks that flow into a soft tulle train. Kae had a contemporary blue suit styled with a black cross tie to match. Our team also prepared some handmade props like the tin can telephone and chalkboards.

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!

Desmond & Kailun=”

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!
