Michelle & James’s Thailand Destination Wedding at Shanti, Jivana Villas

Having both studied at Loughborough University, Brits, Michelle and James met whilst in university. Michelle was in her first year, studying psychology and James, in his second year studying quantity surveying and commercial managing.

The pair felt an unimaginable connection with one another and, after dating for a while, James knew that Michelle was ‘the one’. For that reason, on a white sandy beach in Krabi, James organised a private dinner for the two of them and proposed in the form of a heart-shaped mango sticky rice pudding (Michelle’s favourite). Flabbergasted at first, Michelle finally came back down to earth and exclaimed that she would love to be James’s wife.

The pair chose to marry in Phuket due to Michelle’s Thai heritage and the fact that the island holds many special memories of the two of them. And so, even more memories were made on their big day – and they were encapsulated perfectly thanks to Liam and Stam’s gorgeous Thailand wedding photography.
