Glamorous Wedding at Villa Torcello, Kamala Beach – Soo-Lin and Morgan

Liam Collard Photography was pleased to have the chance to photograph Soo-Lin and Morgan’s glamorous Phuket wedding. The English bride (Soo-Lin) and Australian groom (Morgan), who live as expats in Singapore, had their wedding at the modern, luxurious Villa Torcello on Kamala Beach in Phuket, Thailand. The immaculately-appointed villa has stunning views of the Andaman Sea, and its gorgeous, polished interior makes it the ideal Thai wedding venue. Its location on the peaceful and less touristy Kamala Beach also makes it perfect for those craving a more intimate event.

Soo-Lin and Morgan chose wedding planner Phuket Weddings and Events, as well as catering by chef Daniel Isberg, floral arrangements by IAMFLOWER, and videography by Daniel Baci. As per usual, all provided fantastic services. Soo-Lin purchased her gown from Pronovias, and her shoes from Reiss.

Liam Collard Photography was delighted to be able to photograph Gianna and Eddie’s intimate Thai elopement. Gianna and Eddie, both New Yorkers, are Muay Thai kick boxers, and chose to elope to Thailand as they spend a lot of time there through their sport. They selected the beautiful Paresa Resort in Kamala, Phuket, a luxurious hotel that provided a stunning 270 degree view of the Andaman Sea as a backdrop for the ceremony. Paresa’s wonderful in-house wedding planning team organised the event, providing flowers and music, as well as coordinating the ceremony.

As there were no guests, Gianna and Eddie’s wedding had a unique and intimate atmosphere, with the strong connection between them particularly evident. The event was blessed with fantastic weather, hot and sunny, with a vibrant sunset developing during the ceremony and allowing for some truly stunning photographs of the newlyweds.

Kribs and Cian’s Indian Wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand

Liam Collard Photography was delighted to be able to photograph Australian bride Kribs and Irish groom Cian as they celebrated their truly unique wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand. Ban Sairee Villas, a beautiful, private group of villas located on the beach in the secluded town of Laem Sor, served as their venue.

Kribs and Cian selected wedding planner Aey from Dreamcatcher Events to organize their two wedding days, the first of which was a colourful Indian wedding ceremony for the bride’s family, while the second was an intimate Catholic church service and traditional white wedding reception held at a local Thai church. Following their second ceremony, the couple drove out to a Thai naval base, where we captured some amazing portraits along the coastline and with some of the guards who were on duty there.

Although the weather was cloudy and sometimes rainy, the bride and groom took it all in their stride. While it rained during the main course at dinner, guests did not run inside, but rather sat with umbrellas while they ate, creating a magical scene and atmosphere that made from some striking photographs.
