Sand, Beach, Marina, Bridge and Resort of Port Dickson

Port Dickson, located about 1 hour drive from KL is a popular holiday destination for its 18km long beach activities and resorts. Here are some of the more popular wedding photography locations:

1. Pantai Cahaya Negeri is a beachside destination between 5th and 6th mile of Port Dickson, served by resorts, hotels and apartments perched along its coastal strip. A recreational park occupies a small cape at the eastern edge, with panoramic views of sea along its perimeter, and a wooden bridge that leads to a small mangrove island (Pulau Burung) off the coast.

Locally known as the Lovers bridge, it provides a romantic photo spot. From the park, this bridge leads to the Pulau Burong Island.

There are many stops along Port Dickson beach. However I chose Pantai Cahaya Negeri because I felt it is cleaner and less crowd. Furthermore, there’s ample of parking lots here. I also like that there’s a public toilet & bathroom here. It will be convenient for beach goers to wash up. There’s a fee of RM0.50 (for usage of toilet), RM1 (for usage of bathroom). I wouldn’t say its very clean, but still acceptable.

Port Dickson local office is really trying to beautify Port Dickson. Pantai Cahaya Negeri is one such place. There is a shady picnic area for families. The local Majlis even build little Gazebos with tables. They have cleaned up the beach. Now it looks like we are somewhere else.

Bridal Gowns for Older Brides

For example something with sleeves, bolero, cape, illusion overlay or jacket, no big ribbons, something more elegant. Here are some unique designs, not too complicated or mainstream and are beautiful in their own ways.

I was there last night for a wedding dinner. What spoilt it for me was towards the end when the the waiter was clearing the table to serve dessert, he accidentally spilt soy sauce from the sauce dish on to my shirt. He was very apologetic about it. I told him to call his supervisor and a girl came over and apologised again. I told her I would like to speak to the manager and awhile later a Malay guy came over to apologise. But what I didn't like is that he used a four letter word about the staff.

Exquisite Bridal Wear @ Shimmerz Styles, Bangsar

Indian bridal wear is all about good quality fabrics and fine craftsmanship. Many Malaysian brides source their traditional bridal gowns all the way from India. Now they are lucky to have Shimmerz Styles in Bangsar because this boutique offers a collection of classy designer ensembles as well as other formal, ethnic or casual attire made from high quality material.

There are many Lehengas, sarees, Pubjabi suits, fabrics for Baju Kurungs and kaftans (long loose dresses), indo-western tunics, and costume jewelries. Many brides these days prefer lehengas as they’re easier to put on than sarees and are more modern looking, especially the improvised designs. Their bridal gowns are highlighted with lavish use of antique gold, gotapatti, dabka, and zari combining fusion cuts and traditional embroidery.

Lehengas are long, heavily adorned skirts and tops with a chuni (scarf) that can be draped in different ways.
Saree consists of a long drape, wrapped around the waist and over the shoulder, baring midriff.  
Anarkali style - A long shirt that flows out, usually worn with a churidar underneath. A churidar is tighter than a salwar, and bunches at the ankles.
Salwar Kameez consists of Salwar which is the loose pants, and Kameez the shirt.
