Martin & Socheata’s Romantic Thailand Wedding at Cape Sienna Phuket
Australian couple Martin & Socheata were looking the Cape Sienna wedding venue to celebrate their love, after Martin surprised Soceata with a super romantic wedding proposal..and this is their love story!
These two love birds met through mutual friends, it was love at first sight. A year later when exploring Hong Kong on holiday, Martin proposed to Socheata while dining at “The Peak” restaurant with its stunning views over Victoria Harbour.
Socheata: “I’m scared of heights and wondered why Martin kept pushing me to the edge and that’s when he proposed over-looking the beautiful skyline of Hong Kong. I was in complete shock and surprise at first but then became overjoyed.”
Romantic Thailand Wedding
6 years later, on Monday 7th of March 2016 the glamorous couple married used the Cape Sienna wedding venue in Phuket, Thailand in order to say their “I do’s”.Their dream wedding was to have an intimate resort-style theme, overseas with breath-taking views that could not be replicated back home.
Socheata is a fantastically talented seamstress, she designed both her own wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. Every detail was meticulously planned including their custom-made wedding rings, Swarovski wedding jewellery and Jimmy Choo bridal shoes.
Their wedding day celebrations were fabulously multi-cultural with both Vietnamese and Cambodian influences. 55 of their close friends and family travelling from Melbourne, Sydney, Taiwan and Thailand, were treated to a full western ceremony, a traditional tea ceremony and a Cambodian Wishing Dance performed by two of Socheata’s younger nieces.
“Our first dance led into a spectacular array of fireworks, it felt like an endless moment of joy and bliss.”
Before the evening’s entertainment kicked off with fireworks and live music, Stam and I headed down to the beach at sunset to shoot a series of bride and groom portraits. This is when we captured our favourite photograph of Martin & Socheata, in a romantic embrace set against a sunset sky filled with deep purple and red hues – a simply beautiful moment.
Needless to say, their Cape Sienna wedding venue photographs are enough to make you fall in love with the place!
