“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”
— Ryan Gosling, The Notebook
Congratulations! You are marrying the man or woman of your dreams. Between feeling awakened, giddy, at peace, and completely and totally in love — we also know there’s a fire in your heart and quite possibly a fire in your mind. Let’s face it, weddings are a lot of work to plan. When doing everything on your own, they’re nearly a full-time job! Here at La Bride, we want to help you totally relax as you plan your wedding — we want you to focus on the fire in your hearts and love for each other, rather than getting tied up in all of the odds and ends.
This week, in Issue 2 of Wedding-O-Pedia: Time is of the Essence, we bring you advice on some of the hot topics that every couple thinks about as they plan their big day.
First, we bring you the award-winning photographer, Ray LohCKout, to help with a question of photography. There’s really nothing worse than looking back at your cherished photos, only to realise they’re not what you had in mind. Here, Ray answers the big question of how exactly you liaise with your photographer in order to ensure you’re going to get the exact theme and vibe you’re looking for.
Several brides and grooms are opting for videographers these days — and we couldn’t agree more! Photos to cherish are brilliant, but having a quality video is something so much more special. We were lucky enough to get some advice on why it’s important for the film team to liaise with the other vendors from award-winning Eric Han from In a Maze Films.
In recent times, weddings are branching out in all sorts of directions.

However, the ever-traditional affair isn’t as popular as it once was. Take a read through this extremely hot topic question about your wedding party from the ever-talented Weiwei Tan.
