Thailand Wedding Shanti at Jivana – Liz and Ben
Thailand wedding photographer Liam Collard Photography was delighted to have the opportunity to photograph Liz and Ben’s beautiful wedding on Natai Beach in Phuket, Thailand.
The event took place at the Shanti Villas, a top venue in the Phang Nga area of Thailand, and was coordinated by Jeanette Skelton, a fantastic wedding planner at Luxury Events Phuket, who made sure that the day was unforgettable.
Bride Liz is American with Asian heritage, while groom Ben is German, meaning that guests arrived from all over the world, from locally in Thailand to as far away as the US, UK, and Germany!
Although rain showers early in the day had the bridal party worried, the weather soon cleared up, leaving us with a stunning sunset as a backdrop for this elegant yet fun wedding. We took advantage of this when we photographed the bride and groom in a portrait shoot a few minutes away from the venue, at an abandoned pier that lends a rugged beauty to the photos.The wedding was truly an amazing event, enjoyed by all, with vivid floral arrangements from Phuket-based florist IAMFLOWER, a delicious meal catered by celebrity chef Daniel Isberg, and the chance to mingle with an elephant calf. The night was completed with lanterns and a breathtaking firework display.
Our favorite image of Liz and Ben’s wedding day is of the groomsmen putting on their black-tie outfits before the wedding – the scene reminds us of a James Bond film!
