Thailand Wedding Photographer captures bride and groom – Daniella and Arran’s wedding day at The InterContinental Hotel, Koh Samui

On the 5th September 2014 on a beautifully mild weathered Thai day, with adequate cloud cover providing a very comfortable heat for the bride and groom and their guests, saw the wedding day of Arran and Daniela. The wedding ceremony took place in the comfort of the luxurious 5 star InterContinental Hotel, Koh Samui followed by a spectacular reception at the Kalyana, a private villa in its own bay “Laem Sor” on Taling Ngam Beach – the ultimate tropical privacy for a majestic Thailand wedding.

The elegant and beautiful bride Daniella is Filipino, born in Macau, China while groom Arran is English with Indian heritage, both living in Hong Kong, making their wedding day a truly international occasion. They also had an impressive team of ten groomsmen providing plenty of opportunistic fun shots while getting ready and on the beach.

Bride Daniella had organised a rather fantastic entrance to her reception, carefully balanced on the back of a very large adult elephant!! Not surprisingly a few screams of excitement and jubilation were heard 😉 The perfect lighting of the mild Thai day provided a beautiful soft light for the bride and groom portrait shots, while taking a few minutes away from their guests on the InterContinental beach. Later that day the bride and groom were really lucky to witness a dramatic sunset again providing the ultimate backdrop for further perfect portraits. To close the day’s celebration before the party atmosphere began, Arran and Daniella organised a live Filipino band, with guest appearances from Daniella’s own family and friends.

Thanks Daniella and Arran for providing numerous candid and loving moments for us to capture, the perfect bride and groom models!
