Gianna and Eddie’s Intimate Thai Elopement

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.

Sarah and Simon Marry at St Joseph’s Parish Phuket

Sarah and Simon approached me to be their Thailand Wedding Photographer back in March when I was in Australia, after chatting to Sarah I had a great understanding as to how wonderful and intimate this wedding was going to be. Sarah decided not to hire a wedding planner and organised everything herself, which was some achievement from a few thousand miles away! Sarah’s family flew to Thailand from Europe and the bride and groom themselves travelled from Brisbane, Australia where they currently live.

They chose to marry at St Joseph’s Parish Phuket a Catholic Church in the town with a beautiful reception at Paresa Resort Phuket – an exclusive five star resort of pool villas on Phuket’s west coast. By the afternoon the rain had stopped and the bride and groom were introduced to Phuket’s famous baby elephant Yaya. The evening celebrations were all about being Irish, having a great time singing and dancing to lots of local Irish music. Thank you to Sarah and Simon for inviting Liam Collard Photography to capture your wedding in Thailand, it really was a privilege to be a part of your celebrations in Thailand. Here’s a sneak preview of the photographs, with so many highlights it was hard to pick out my favourites.
