Our Pre-Wedding Studio & Outdoors Memories

As we celebrate our 8th marriage anniversary tomorrow, it's that time of the year when I start to reminisce about our wedding and everything leading up to it (*^▽^*) I was looking through some of our pre-wedding shots and realised I never shared them on the blog here.

Well, mainly because I started Sakura Haruka about 3 years after it happened haha.

I hate to sound like it was a long, long time ago {hah!} but back then when we got married, we didn't want too much of a hassle {or spend an exorbitant amount of money} and signed up with a one-stop bridal studio to take care of most things.

No rushing to look for a famed wedding gown designer, or artisan florist, or award-winning photographer {although we got a pretty good one for our actual day}. If I'm not wrong, the bulk of our wedding expenditure went to our venue for our bridal ceremony & dinner banquet at Four Seasons Hotel... which was my dream wedding venue for various reasons #thankshubbyformakingmyweddingdreamcometrue

The photos here are very "typical" bridal studio indoors / outdoors shots & poses. They may also seem a little dated especially since nowadays pre-wedding shots are so creatively themed and taken.

Kinda cheesy, but I still like and treasure them ~ヾ(^∇^)









Ahhhhh memories~ The white wedding gown with the giant red bow was a custom-made piece for me. Can you guess where I got the inspiration for the red bow from?? haha..

Anyway that and the red gown were both actual dresses I wore on our wedding day ♥ I don't think I shared our wedding day photos here on the blog much before too.. might do that in a later post (⁎⚈᷀᷁▿⚈᷀᷁⁎)

Do you often look back at your wedding photos?
Where did you go for your pre-wedding / engagement shots?

P.S. If you haven't read them yet, here's more about the man behind me, 11 things you may not know about hubby and me, and 12 things I learnt from our years together as a couple.

The shots are so lovely! It's nice that you have such gorgeous photos to reminisce on. We did a shotgun wedding, so I don't have anything like this in our photo albums. It's ok though. I have great memories from the past 20 years stored in my head ;)

Photos are really nice and I love that white dress with the big red bow that you custom made! I actually tried to look for something like that when I got married 5 years ago but couldn't find it! Happy 8th Wedding Anniversary!!

Happy anniversary Ai! It's great that one-stop bridal services which they take care of everything are available here. Back in Australia where I got married, we had to take care of every aspect of the wedding and dealing with different suppliers all by ourselves.

I have a similar gown, except that mine was a gold giant bow! Hahahaha. I think we were from the same "era". :p I took mine from Lebelle Couture, what about you!

WOW you two are a great looking couple! These photos are amazing. Hopefully you have them hanging up in your house somewhere.

Wow! The shots are beautiful and you guys are so natural in front of the camera!
Reading your post brought back memories of my pre wedding shots too. It's a good way to put it all out and reminisce again. Most of us after married, the pictures are all in the storeroom collecting dust including mine xp

So sweet of you to share these precious memories and thoughts with us. Yes, style of photography changes with time but true love...doesn't (cheesy...but true!) . Congrats on your 8th anniversary and here's to many many more!

We didn't have a pre-wedding shoot, but I'm hoping to save up enough for a family shoot soon.

Lovely shots and isn't it feels so good to see the old photos. Happy Anniversary!

It's so nice to revisit those sweet memories. I don't generally go and see our past photos deliberately. But if stumbled upon them, then it is like such a nice surprise!

So beautiful, Ai.

Yeah these days wedding photos are a bit different - not all in a good way though.
