Jungle Wedding Ceremony in Ubud, Bali – Ade & Fei

As we spend much of our time photographing weddings in Thailand and Greece, Liam Collard Photography was excited to have the opportunity to work as a Bali wedding photographer! Indonesian couple Ade and Fei married in a jungle wedding ceremony at Komaneka Bisma in Ubud, Bali. The pair had already legally married while on holiday in New Zealand, but chose Bali, their favourite local holiday destination, for their ceremony, in which they were surrounded by their close family and friends. Their venue, the Wanasmara Chapel at Komeneka Bisma, a luxury resort, is a stunning A-frame building set amidst tropical jungle, with a view of the Campuhan River below. After the ceremony, Ade and Fei held an energetic reception, featuring strings of lanterns, a family member’s band, and a poolside DJ.

Beautiful International Wedding in Phuket, Thailand – Michelle & Toby

On a stunning March day at Trisara Resort, we had the pleasure of photographing Michelle and Toby’s beautiful international wedding in Phuket, Thailand.

With an Australian bride and Canadian groom, who both live in Singapore, and with guests from Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the US, and the UK, this wedding had a fitting “travel” theme. The fantastic in-house wedding planners at the Trisara Resort organised, catered, and provided floristry for the wedding. Kate’s Hair and Makeup Studio was responsible for the women’s beautiful hair and makeup, I2 Productions recorded the event on video, and the couple brought in their own DJ to ensure that the music was amazing.

Michelle purchased her gown at Blessed Brides in Singapore, her bridesmaids’ dresses from Vera Wang, and her shoes from Badgley Mischka. The men’s suits were from Raffles Creation Tailor in Singapore.

Intimate, Relaxed Wedding: Gemma and Kris

Gemma and Kris held their intimate, relaxed wedding at Pimalai Resort and Spa on a sun-drenched March day in Koh Lanta, Thailand.
We had previously shot their pre-wedding portraits in Bangkok, at a stunning derelict lighthouse, Bang Rak, so we came into this wedding with a better understanding of this lovely couple and were able to take some of our best photographs of the year.

With just 33 guests in attendance, the wedding was truly family-focused, and had the most wonderful atmosphere of support and closeness. It was also laid-back in the traditional Australian way, as both bride and groom live in Australia.
The “romantic, classic, and rustic”-themed wedding was planned by both Pimalai’s in-house team and Natasha Yelland at Creative Events Asia.

Pimalai had arranged for a fireworks show, fire displays, and a baby elephant, but, to the wedding party’s surprise, an adult elephant turned up instead! This, in fact, made for our most iconic image of the year. Using Profoto B1 lighting on the couple, we created an unbelievable photograph of Gemma and Kris, lit up, beside a silhouetted wedding party and the majestic elephant.

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.

It was here that Liam Collard Photography had the pleasure of photographing Dave and Cookhie’s wedding day.

The day was planned by Khun Jiew, a wedding planner who works at Sri Panwa, and who did a fantastic job of organising the wedding. Neil Donkin, from Elite Hair and Makeup Phuket, provided hair and makeup services, and Photobooths Thailand made sure that everyone had a way of preserving their memories of this special night.
Dave and Cookhie’s wedding had an amazing, raucous atmosphere, complete with a beautiful ceremony, great speeches, delicious food, and a surprise pregnancy announcement, much to the guests’ delight!

The wedding was set on the stunning Mai Khao Beach at the luxury SALA Phuket Resort and Spa, and was organised by the wedding team at SALA, who did everything from creating gorgeous floral arrangements to coordinating the buffet dinner. It was a fun and relaxed day, with photo booths from Photobooths Thailand proving a huge success among the guests, who came from Hong Kong, Germany, and the UK. A unique touch was added when the groom danced to the recent hit “Happy,” by Pharrell!
