Martyn and Gemma’s Lush Tropical Wedding, Rayavadee, Krabi Thailand

Stam and I first meet Scottish bride Gemma in Glasgow, about a year before her wedding. She gave a very detailed picture of her dream destination wedding in Thailand. We understood straight away that Gemma and Martyn’s wedding was going to be an intimate and relaxed affair.

Gemma and Martyn met in 2008 in their home town Falkirk in Scotland. And just four years later, very romantically on Christmas Day morning, Martyn proposed to his wife to be Gemma. She of course said yes and off they went to Christmas Day lunch at Gemma’s mum’s house with very exciting news!

Gemma: “We didn’t want a big wedding, just something small and intimate. Scottish weather is miserable, so we decided to go abroad. Martyn’s friend had mentioned a wedding he was at in Rayavadee. We took a look and fell in love!!”

The bride and groom wanted a tropical themed wedding and what a fabulous location they chose! Rayavadee, Krabi, Thailand is situated at the heart of the stunning Phranang Peninsular on the edge of Krabi Marine National Park. The Rayavadee Resort nestles discreetly amidst tropical gardens and coconut groves against a backdrop of sheer cliffs, lush jungle foliage and the clear waters of the Andaman Sea.

Robin & Jamee’s Spectacular Golf Themed Wedding, Banyan Tree Resort Phuket

We loved Robin and Jamee’s golf themed wedding at The Banyan Tree Golf Course. It added a spectacularly different photographic angle, to that of the normal destination weddings we shoot here on Phuket Island.

We were introduced to the amazing couple through a previous Hong Kong client of ours. Robin and Jamee contacted us after seeing their wedding photos.

The bride and groom first met in their home country of Hong Kong, as one does over a coffee. Then while on vacation in Bhutan, after climbing 3,200 meters up to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Jamee asked their guide to clear out the temple. He then got down on one knee and popped the question to his beautiful wife to be Robin, with a stunning custom made engagement ring.

The Banyan Tree Golf Course, Phuket, Thailand was recommended to Robin and Jamee by Robin’s father whom, like Jamee, is an avid golfer. He played a tournament there and thought it was the perfect venue for their wedding. The groom Jamee heard “golf course wedding” and was sold! Logistically they also thought it was super easy with direct flights to Phuket from Hong Kong.

Stam and I managed to fit in an amazing pre-wedding photoshoot

Amanda & Louis’ Vibrant Wedding in Bangkok’s Old Quarter, Thailand

British couple Amanda and Louis first met on a blind date in Central London. While on holiday to Sri Lanka a few years later Louis romantically proposed to Amanda on the top of Adam’s Peak in Sri Lanka, with her beautiful engagement ring from London’s Hatton Gardens.

The to be bride and groom had no doubts that their desired location for their destination wedding would be Thailand and ultimately Chakrabongse Villa, a little known marvel tucked away in a prime location by the Chao Phya River, in the midst of Bangkok’s old quarter. The choice of venue wasn’t only a stunning option but extremely convenient to organise and manage for their international guests as Amanda’s parents also live in Bangkok.

We were delighted to hear from Amanda and Louis when they first got in touch, as we were recommended through one of our former UK clients who also married in Thailand. Our wedding day preparations were made even easier thanks to Amanda’s parents for taking us on a tour of the venue in advance of their big day, to get a feeling for the day’s events.

We were also invited to a fabulous pre-wedding party in Bangkok’s old district at Tep Bar, where we met Amanda and Louis for

Adam & Marvie – Sri Panwa Phuket, Ultimate Destination Wedding

Adam and Marvie chose one of Phuket’s most glamorous wedding venues, Sri Panwa, the ultimate destination wedding on Phuket Island. The luxury hotel, private pool villas & spa resort is perched high atop Cape Panwa with its commanding and breath-taking views of the South Eastern tip of Phuket, occupying the Cape Panwa peninsula in its entirety. “We looked at several locations around SE Asia, but as soon as we saw Baba Nest and experienced the hospitality of Sri Panwa, we knew it was the ideal location.” Adam and Marvie both live in Singapore, the groom is Australian and the bride is Filipino. They met one evening at a nightclub called 1-Altitude, where Adam was playing that night, he’s a well-known DJ and travels the world DJ Adam Sky.

The Proposal

Marvie the Bride: “I had no idea! He came back from touring in Africa, and surprised me by taking me off to Capella on Sentosa Island. I didn’t think too much at first as he does tend to do things off the cuff from time to time. Even when we were picked up in the biggest limousine I’ve ever seen, and checked into the Villa for two nights at Capella, I was still none the wiser. He arranged for a private romantic dinner for just the two of us, surrounded by about 1000 candles, and a 3-piece acoustic guitar trio playing songs I like. It wasn’t until he surprised me by dropping down to one knee to ask me to marry him, that I realised he was proposing! Obviously, I said
