Pantai Tampih Prewedding

The perfect escape.

A moment of solitude while admiring the blue sky clothed in gleam and contemplating the Ocean. The wind settles like blossoms of chamomile beautifully and tranquil. 

Stretching our arms and hands wide open; like a glass vial without a lid. As though your tiredness must be filled, with this calmness brewing within nature.

“Oh what a dream it is, to lie with her in a field of grass. To lie there forever and let time pass.”

Labuan Bajo Prewedding

In sweet solitude of mind, she finds peace in between his arms and in between his soft whispers. His caring shadow knows the voice of her soul very well without any contests.

And in the quiet light of the morning, he fell for the way her eyes shone when she laughed. He knows where he belongs; in her eyes, her soul and between their holding hands.

“Sitting next to you is like taking a sip of eternity, the sun, the stars, the sky, my life never tasted this good.”

“Give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate”

Forcing ourselves to be creative can leads us to a dead-end sometimes, but it doesn’t have to be that way.

It’s been six years since Iluminen had been running in the wedding industry. Countless weddings had been captured and millions of shutters were tripped. It can get boring after a while, and so they decided to come up with a way to freshen things up. “CTRL+F5” features 3 mini projects directed by both the photographers and videographers of Iluminen, with the aim to see the world from a different perspective.

The projects involved the collaboration between 3 photographers and 3 videographers, where one photographer paired with one videographer in random order. There was no specific guideline given and they were free to create any artworks with any devices. Freedom was the main driving key in “CTRL+F5”. The project was needed to be completed within a span of five days.

What makes “CTRL+F5” unique is that for each individual involved, they had their own unique imaginations and visions that were respectively true to themselves. At the end of the day, “CTRL+F5” is a compilation of several different ideas into one harmonious piece.

Drawing inspirations from the daily essence surrounding them, “CTRL+F5” explores the reasons behind the decision to create an art project that is nothing like the ordinary. It shows that there are no right or wrong answers in art and that art in itself, is limitless. Enjoy!

Tirtha Bridal Wedding

Like a river flows surely to the sea, being together feels natural. They slowly melted into a lazy summer of gentle sea breezes and singing trees. The curling waves caressing the silent sands as they fell quietly into each other’s open arms. 

He would watch a million sunrises and still never see one quite as magnificent as her soul.

How great it is to be wonderfully lost and hopelessly in love.

GWG – Green Wedding Guide


Weddings should be one of the most special days of our life, but unfortunately without realising it can also be one of the biggest contributors of environmental waste. Thus, in honor of “Plastic Free July”, a global movement that aim to dramatically reduces plastic use, we rounded some simple ways to host a green wedding.

We’re not telling you to skip the party, flavourful meals, gorgeous invites and decors – but we’re talking about making small actions that create a great impact to our environment.

Let’s try one (or some) of these tricks to bring positive consequences for the environment on your wedding day!

Choose Eco-Friendly Stationery

Stationery is generally paper-made, that also means the more paper being used, the more trees will be cut down too. And with more wedding vendors become increasingly environmentally conscious, it’s easier nowadays to find invitation suites, thank you cards and other wedding stationeries that are printed on 100% recycled paper. Or alternatively we can decide togo paper-less by using e-invitations or even wedding website services, that are certainly more eco friendly and also provide a more effective and efficient basis for the wedding guests to RSVP and connect with us.

  1. Love Invitation
  2. Bow Bei
  3. Parler Studio
  4. The Distillery Asia

Pick an Eco-Friendly Venue

One of the easiest ways to reduce energy usage for your wedding day is to utilise outdoors venue, like on a cliff or beachside. The exposure of direct sunlight to the venue enables us to hold the party without the excessive usage of energy. Plus outdoor places usually have better lighting for everyone’s leisure, but most importantly for photo purposes.

Nonetheless, outdoor weddings are not everyone’s cup of tea. If you prefer yours to be indoors, there are a handful of ways you can make it eco-friendly. We can cut back on your energy usage by choosing a venue that gets plenty of sunlight. Another way is to search for hotels or restaurants that takes sustainability seriously by using energy-efficient appliances and biodegradable products.

  2. Bunga Rampai
  3. Khayangan Estate 
  4. Villa Karang Putih 
  5. Pine Hill Cibodas

Don’t Waste Your Flowers or Decorations

To reduce waste of wedding day, we can maximise our florals by recycling or donating them to a nursing home, hospital, orphanage or shelter, so others can enjoy their beauty, too.

Do Plantable and Green Wedding Favors

Believe it or not, unfortunately many guests will throw your wedding gifts away in the end.

To achieve a green wedding we can substitute the typical gifts such as notes, photo frames, drinking glass and etc with more eco-friendly products. These green products are generally more favourable to our guests, for example; organic candles, soaps, aroma therapy, or stainless utensils. Greeneries like succulents, plant seeds or fruits are also a great alternative.

  2. Edible Jello Cup & Bowl 
  3. Kaminari 
  4. Mini Plant ITP

Opt For Biodegradable Confetti and Sustainable Straws

It may seem insignificant, but tossing rice or paper confetti around the aisle of your church isn’t the most eco-friendly way to celebrate your sacred union. As an alternative, we can opt for the more eco-friendly products such as rose petals, lavender or fresh herbs.

In regards of the underrated usage of plastic straw, we can contribute to the environment by providing recycled paper straw or even better a stainless steel based material. Plus, these type of straws normally come with a greater patterns that will look more appealing for the guests and the photos.

Don’t do balloon release

We highly suggest to skip the notion of balloon release. It has been a huge issue in the wedding industry that these short and insignificant event has cost the environment. Once the balloon helium gas has dissipated, the balloon will normally end up in the open field or sea, this will cause a great impact to the wildlife and us human in general.

Donate Your Excess Food

When it comes to wedding, couples usually have the simmilar thinking of “the more the merrier”, where they prefer to have many leftovers rather to starve their guests. As a result, there will be a great portions of foods and drinks that are thrown away.

The first step when planning your menu is by limiting the number of courses for your reception dinner; a reduced course means less food trash.

Another solution if there are still leftovers, there are many food banks available across the country that will gladly pick up your chilled unserved food from your wedding reception. Simply talk with your caterers in advance so they can make the necessary arrangement beforehand.

And of course, we would want to preserve these beautiful sceneries below for our next generations.
