OLIVIA LOW AND VI­VIAN NG Co-founders, Our Fairy­tale Wed­ding

Start by pick­ing a theme that best re­flects the per­son­al­i­ties of you and your other half. You can also adorn the stage and aisle with cus­tomised decor (in­stead of stan­dard decor from the ho­tel) to cre­ate a look that is dif­fer­ent and rep­re­sen­ta­tive of you both, and have a 3D photo booth with props that match your theme as well as a flower bar for guests to cre­ate their own bou­quet. Weave a wed­ding dance with your bridal party into the pro­gramme to liven up the mood, and fi­nally, bring on special ef­fects such as fire­works, in­door py­rotech­nics or con­fetti show­ers, which are vis­ually im­pact­ful and eas­ily pho­tographed.

Go with mod­ern and more lav­ish decor such as a state­ment arch­way— a sim­ple one crafted from tree bark or flow­ers il­lu­mi­nated with hur­ri­cane can­dle hold­ers is cur­rently trend­ing. An­other idea to con­sider is hav­ing in­di­vid­ual ta­ble cen­tre­pieces of vary­ing heights—tall branches of cherry blos­soms to help fill an oth­er­wise empty space or short ves­sels filled with brightly-hued blooms for a vi­brant can­vas against which to mark your new phase of life. Fi­nally, a wed­ding cake with flo­ral and fo­liage dec­o­ra­tions, and in a colour that pops in pic­tures is sure to be in­stantly In­sta­gram-friendly.

The rule of thumb for amaz­ing wed­ding-day photos is con­sis­tency. Know your pref­er­ences and the type of at­mos­phere you want for your wed­ding be­fore de­cid­ing on the de­tails. Then, in­vest in these fea­tures: the bridal bou­quet, which usu­ally calls for close-up photos and is a dec­o­ra­tive piece that il­lus­trates the kind of bride you are; a bridal party— hav­ing one and in­vest­ing time and fi­nan­cial re­sources on them opens av­enues for cap­tur­ing the live­li­ness you would want in your photos. You’ll have a great story about your bond with them to tell on so­cial me­dia and form great mem­o­ries.
