The wedding bells are ringing. Have you found the locations for your ??pre-wedding photoshoot already? One of the most important parts of a wedding is the pre-wedding photo shoot, and Malaysia has lots of beautiful places for that! Here are the 7 most heavenly & surreal outdoor locations to take pre-wedding photos in Malaysia.
For those looking for a beautiful beach ??pre-wedding photoshoot, why not add some spice? With the sand dunes, you will appear as if you have teleported to the Sahara desert and on the other side of the dunes is the beach. Wow! You are definitely getting the best of 2 worlds!
For those who don’t know, the sand dunes are the result of a land reclamation activity that got halted hence it is not a natural phenomenon. It is a very popular spot for ?photo shoots especially on the weekends when parents bring their kids over. Therefore, it is advisable to come during the weekdays, and you will find a surreal place with only empty sand dunes and a blue sky.
📍Pantai Klebang, Melaka
Waterfall Forest Park Kanching or more fondly known as Kanching Waterfall is a ?hidden gem for pre-wedding photoshoots. First of all, there are 7 levels of waterfalls, and the higher you climb, the lesser the crowd gets. Secondly, it has a beautiful mix of greenery and cascading waterfalls. It provides a nice shady canopy for your ?photoshoot session.
However, you will need to climb and hike to reach the waterfall of your choice. The higher you go, the harder it is to climb. On top of that, the water can be ?icy cold making it rather challenging to stand in the water for long. On the weekends, locals like to flock to the Kanching Waterfall for some picnic sessions and some dipping at the waterfall area. So to avoid the crowd, we advise you to come on weekdays.
Tips: Beware of the slippery mossy embankment and watch out for ?monkeys that might steal your belongings.

This location is like a marriage between nature and man-made structures. Here, green plants and concrete stairs co-exist in the same space. After all, the opposite attracts, and if you think your ?relationship with your other half is the same, then this is the exact place to symbolize your relationship.
As you explore around, you’ll realize that Tamarind Square is different from your ordinary fairytale pre-wedding photoshoot backdrop with a modern 21st-century wedding vibe. The industrial theme adds a unique touch for those who value arts & designs. With abundant natural ?sunlight peeking through the concrete walls and the greenery everywhere, it provides a beautiful soft & hard contrast in your photos.
📍 Tamarind Bldg Rd, Cyberjaya, 63000 Cyberjaya, Selangor
Here is another place for a surreal pre-wedding photoshoot. It gives off an "Alice in Wonderland" kind of feel. This gigantic greenhouse houses lots of beautiful & colourful plants. The landscape is beautifully designed to resemble a garden in a fantasy world.
If you like to have ?butterflies of various species fluttering around you while basking in warm ?sunlight, you can take the Pre-Wedding Photography Package where butterflies will be released during your ?photoshoot session. However, the package does not include a photography service and admission fee. Plus, the place is not sealed off for your photography session. Okay, this is ?head-scratching indeed. So the best thing is to call them up and ask.

The Sky Mirror at Kuala Selangor is like heaven on ?earth. This uncharted territory (why does a pre-wedding photoshoot sound like a treasure hunt adventure lol), is reachable in 30 minutes by ?boat. This spot is not on any map and is only known by the tour operator of Sky Mirror Kuala Selangor, so by hook or by crook, you’ll have to book a tour with them.
The Sky Mirror is a unique natural phenomenon where the water subsides during low tide producing a super shallow pool of water. It also resembles Bolivia's Salar De Uyuni. The seawater, coupled with the ?sunlight in the a.m, provides a smooth reflection like a gigantic mirror. This would make a fun pre-wedding shoot as you experiment with the most exciting poses. Again, this place is very popular among tourists. So you might want to pick a weekday and expect to take turns to take photos to prevent photobombing others and being photobombed.
With a panoramic view overlooking the blurred silhouette of ?mountains far into the plantation, the Boh Tea Plantation is a heavenly photoshoot location for ??pre-wedding photos. The lush greenery and blue sky, coupled with the warm rays of morning sun piercing into cold mist, make a dreamy photo backdrop.
With a temperature that can drop to 16°C and maybe even colder in the morning, it takes someone who can withstand cold without any outerwear to go through the photoshoot session. The morning is the best time for a photoshoot as there is lesser dust and particles compared to in the evening during ?sunset. On top of that, the morning mist provides a cloud-like and soft appearance for a perfect & memorable photo of you and your other half.
📍Jln Gunung Brinchang, Brinchang, Tanah Rata, Pahang
This unusual-looking beach at the northernmost tip of Borneo provides a breath of fresh air in ??pre-wedding photography. It is not your usual beach with white sands and blue water. The huge rocky patches provide an out-of-the-world backdrop for a surreal outdoor pre-wedding photoshoot.
As the ?warm orange sun shines on the rocks in the late evening, the whole place looks like another planet. You can imagine the two of you alone on an abandoned planet with no one but the two of you alone (and maybe the photographer). It almost feels like you are in a scene of the blockbuster movie Interstellar.
📍Address: Simpang Menggayau, Tip of Borneo, 89050 Kudat, Sabah, Malaysia.
