A Romantic Seaside Pre-wedding Shoot

Somewhere between the earth and sea, surrounded by rocky terrain and beckoning waves, Julxy and Michael had an intimate engagement shoot. They strolled along the rocky shores hand in hand, and they savoured the ocean breeze as caught Julxy’s veil and wrapped the lovers in a sweet embrace. Aside from the romantic scenes of the two, the details of this pre-wedding shoot were also so beautiful. I love Julxy’s lace dresses and Michael’s matching look. And the beautiful bouquet that the bride-to-be was holding was made by Julxy herself! Also we cannot stop looking at the silk ribbons from Water Lilies Styling. We have La French Touch Photography to thank for bringing this special couple our way.

This style gives the illusion of revealing a lot of skin. To keep it tasteful, opt for designs with larger cut-outs or panels so that you have a little more coverage.

A Cozy Rooftop Wedding in Hong Kong

I haven’t seen a wedding as cozy as this in a while, and it’s also extra gorgeous, by the way. Eilidh and Will got married in a small open rooftop in Duddell’s adorned with a lot of greens and warm canopy lights. The reception that followed was also in the same green and white color theme mimicking the fresh and natural feel of the outdoors. To spice it up a little, the couple opted for some quirky details like Eilidh’s shoes, and the groomsmen’s Adidas Originals attire. Walk this way and browse more or Patrick Photography‘s photos get caught up on this sweet and simple union with is!

Luckily, this pre-wedding photo collection by Joy’s foto did just the trick! Nancy and Bryan’s engagement shoot is dreamy and so full of love.
