Lion and Paul’s wedding was on the line when the COVID-19 virus started to spread rapidly. Suddenly, they found themselves facing an important decision: should they postpone their wedding or push through with it. After countless debates and time spent the pros and cons of each, the couple decided to proceed with their wedding at House 1881. It’s important to note that at this time, the government had not imposed strict measures yet. But all the same, to keep everyone safe, guests were asked to practice precautionary measures. Specifically, they were asked to wear a mask and wash their hands frequently. The day might not have turned out exactly as planned, but Lion and Paul were very happy with the outcome. They were able to finally unite as man and wife and they still had all their loved ones around them. Patrick Photography documented this special wedding for all of us to enjoy. We’re so inspired to see that love still wins over whatever challenge looms over us. Let us always remember that!
For their engagement session, Eunice and Tam traveled all the way to the Sahara desert in Morocco. While the trip may have been quite a long one, the effort proved to be worthwhile as evidenced by these stunning photos taken by Heather Lai. She shares, “Shooting in the Sahara Desert is really an adventure and a memorable experience of lifetime.” We agree 100%! Inspired by the local scene and culture, Eunice and Tam wore matching Moroccan outfits that served as a beautiful contrast against the sad dunes. And when the sun began to wane in the afternoon, the rich warmth it brought just made the view extra magical. Come and see all the amazing snaps from this romantic desert pre-wedding session now; it’s worth every minute of your time.
When spring comes, we await the blossoming of flowers. In a way, it signifies hope anew. While viewing today’s sweet union, I found myself feeling the exact same way not only because of the cherry blossoms all around Joyce and Zenon throughout the day. I was equally enamored by the love between them which was blooming in front of my eyes. Belle & Olive‘s photos revel a mist stunning love story and an absolutely captivating wedding ceremony at Notre Dame Marinoa located at Fukuoka, Japan. There can’t be a more worthwhile way to start the day, so stay a while and see more.
With COVID-19 still wreaking havoc globally, many couples have postponed their wedding. However, some might decide to still push through–which is understandable given all the effort and investment already made. Beginning yesterday, the government has imposed stricter social distancing rules for public gatherings to prevent any further spreading of the virus. Public establishments that usually house large gatherings have been shut down, including cinemas, saunas, fitness centers, party venues, parks, playgrounds, and the like. For weddings, ceremonies are to be limited to 20 pax only and venue cannot provide any food or drinks. How are you supposed to proceed? If you’re one of those couples who have decided to still push through with your wedding, here are some things you can do to keep everyone who will be part of your special day safe.
Only Invite Close Friends and Family

To avoid the spread of the virus, limit your guest list to the closest friends and family members only. You can have a more intimate wedding for now and then plan a party later on where you can invite all your friends. You can check with your venue if they can make the necessary adjustments for this. For the other guests, you can set up Face Time or social media live for them to witness your ceremony. Here’s a suggested guest list count for a wedding of 20 pax, applicable for your ceremony.
Bride and Groom 2 pax
Parents 4 pax
Lawyer 1 pax
Photographer 1 pax
Videographer 1 pax
Makeup Artist 1 pax
Bridal Party and Guests: 10 pax
Select an Open Area for The Tea Ceremony
If your venue has the option, opt for an open venue for the Tea Ceremony. Proper spacing and distancing is something that must be practiced to avoid the spread of the virus. Therefore, moving from a closed indoor venue–like a hotel room–to one that has fresh air and open space will be helpful.
Just you two—that’s all you need, each other. It’s true. In this next chapter of your life, it will be you two facing all the joys and challenges that marriage life will bring. So from the moment you say “I do” bask in the promise that you’ll have each other no matter what. Bea and Kevin tied the knot with only a handful of their closest family and friends at the City Hall Marriage Registry. Their wedding reminds us that really, all that matters is your love for one another. While we can get caught in all the dreams and fantasies of a grand union, there’s so much beauty in a wedding stripped to just the two most important characters in the story. Anna Maria Studio‘s photos capture the raw emotions of this most special day and we’re thrilled to share them with you today!
