Deb and Raoul’s Extraordinary Destination Wedding in Koh Samui, Thailand

New bride, Deb, describes the night she met her husband, Raoul a “miracle,” exclaiming that she had found the love of her life. The two expats living in Hong Kong were at Raoul’s flat one fateful night and it was a moment that changed both of their lives forever. As their relationship bloomed, it was clear that they were merely destined to be together. And for that reason, Raoul proposed to Deb not once, but twice.

The first time took place in the old city of Ibiza – a beautiful island in Spain, and the second – a more elaborate affair, happened in Zurich on Deb’s birthday. Together, the couple decided that their wedding simply had to be held in Koh Samui, Thailand, as it is a destination that they both adored and is where they had spent their first holiday together. So, they decided to create even more stunning memories together at a location brimful of palm trees and white sandy beaches.

The wedding event took place over three days, and 45 of their closest friends and family members flew in from various locations worldwide to celebrate their coming together. The ceremony took place at Baan Kilee – a perfect backdrop to a day filled with love and passion. And with their Thailand wedding photography captured perfectly by Liam Collard and Stam, that love and passion now remains a magical memory for eternity.

When it came to that heart-fluttering moment whereby Deb walked down the isle, she graced it perfectly wearing a bridal gown from Dreamers and Lovers. Her make-up shone effortlessly and was done by Polina Pak’s Studio, while her shoes were found on an Etsy store named Barefoot Shop. She greeted her soon-to-be husband, who was dressed in a smart tailor-made suit, with a smile on her face, ready to embrace him and her wedding ring designed by Edmond Chin at Etcetera.

Ultimately, Deb and Raoul experienced a day that they would never forget with loved ones they cherish, and a dream wedding was enjoyed by all.
