Modern Rustic Photography | The Wedding Barn

The laidback elegance shown in these images gives out a very warm feeling. Amazing country scenery, grazing farm, rolling hills, a barn setting and two snugly love birds. It is the stylish mood created by The Wedding Barn photographer Duncan that develops these unforgettable pictures. He looks for the colors and beauty of the backdrop and turn it into a picturesque setting for the photographs he takes. Common in Western wedding photography, the couple is completely at ease in front of the camera thanks to the easy-going approach. The outcome is truly artful - a romantic rustic love story being captured.

Through time, the photographic scene in Malaysia has been shaped by modernist influences from other countries. You don't want your wedding photos to be the same old boring lot. Let The Wedding Barn bring some modern aesthetic qualities to your wedding album. Cosy up with your partner, lay back or be playful. The photographer is able to find the natural connection between the props, people, scenery and pure romance. 

Flower hair wreath, rustic chair/ basket, vintage lace umbrella, brick walls, baby's breath bouquet, back to basics and nature - these are some of the elements and ideas for a modern rustic photography session. You can opt for locations such as UPM's century-old tree and grazing farm, Tanarimba's scenic hills and tree house, The Sekeping retreat houses.

Splendid Bridal Look - Eva | Glam Aurora | Penang MUA

Brides of Penang out there, if you are looking for a makeup artist, this one is for you! One of Top 10 Bridal Makeup Artists in Penang by TallyPress, Eva is a professional make up artist with over 10 years of experience.

Grateful for the fact that Eva takes the trouble to perfect the bridal look by searching for the right accessories, sometimes handmade, her bride feels like a queen on the wedding day. She understands what a bride needs and puts a lot of effort in creating a splendid makeup + hairdo. Highly recommended for her punctuality, professionalism, skill and friendliness by Glam Aurora's (more than 100s) clientele. Eva is also a makeup coach who has trained many students.

Eva strives to create a picture perfect look by making sure that every make up feels flawless, weightless and comfortable which lasts all day. The formula to a glam bridal style lies in the quality of the overall appeal. The look will immediately leave an impact. Curls and braid woven to create some volume to the hair add more sophistication. The layers of colors make the eye makeup appear 3D. I love the glamorous red lips and the well-defined eye lines.

Amazing Night Skies Full of Stars | New Zealand

New Zealand is one of only three countries in the world to have a Gold Rated International Dark Sky Reserve – the Aoraki Mackenzie Dark Sky Reserve on the South Island. This dark sky reserve is the biggest in the world, it includes the Aoraki Mt Cook National Park and the villages of Lake Tekapo, Twizel and Mt Cook. It is almost totally free from light pollution and one is of the best stargazing sites on earth to view planets, stars and solar systems. If you are lucky, and the conditions are right, you will be able to see the impressive natural wonder, an electric phenomenon, Aurora australis (also known as the southern lights) which takes the shape of a curtain of light, or a diffuse glow; which is most often green, sometimes red and other colors.

On clear dark nights, when the moon is thin or below the horizon, a band of what looks like white dust, the Milky Way, can be seen. The Milky Way is brighter in the Southern Hemisphere than in the North. Check out the amazing photos taken at Lake Tekapo (3 hours from Christchurch). I have not seen so many stars before in my life.

Lake Tekapo is 3 hours from Christchurch, far from all civilisation. Soon after, the sun set and the dazzling night sky too over Lake Tekapo. Untainted by any light pollution, it was a magnificent sight. The isolation and flat plains provided a beautiful clear sky that offers unparalleled views of the stars. Incorporate this with the famous historical Church of the Good Shepherd in the background, they present the perfect and most iconic backdrop for New Zealand.  Lake Tekapo is part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve, this is probably the best spot for stargazing in the Southern hemisphere.
