Robin & Jamee’s Spectacular Golf Themed Wedding, Banyan Tree Resort Phuket
We loved Robin and Jamee’s had a celebrated their Banyan Tree Golf Course wedding with the a golf theme. It added a spectacularly different photographic angle, to that of the normal destination weddings we shoot here on Phuket Island.
We were introduced to the amazing couple through a previous Hong Kong client of ours. Robin and Jamee contacted us after seeing their wedding photos.
The bride and groom first met in their home country of Hong Kong, as one does over a coffee. Then while on vacation in Bhutan, after climbing 3,200 meters up to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Jamee asked their guide to clear out the temple. He then got down on one knee and popped the question to his beautiful wife to be Robin, with a stunning custom made engagement ring. so, t was time for them to plan their amazing The Banyan Tree Golf Course wedding.
Robin and Jamee decided to have a Banyan Tree Golf Course wedding because of Robin’s father’s advice whom, like Jamee, is an avid golfer. He played a tournament there and thought it was the perfect venue for their wedding. The groom Jamee heard “golf course wedding” and was sold! Logistically they also thought it was super easy with direct flights to Phuket from Hong Kong.
Stam and I managed to fit in an amazing pre-wedding photoshoot with the bride and groom the night before the wedding. We were treated to some beautiful tropical light as the sunset over Phuket. Their Banyan Tree Golf Course wedding started off on a very good note, indeed.
The Wedding Day
On the morning of 16 April 2016, Robin and her four bridesmaid’s started to prepare for their amazing day ahead. Dressed in their custom made “bridesmaid” and “Bride” T-shirts, their hair and make-up was perfectly executed by artists Yan Leung and Neil Donkin. Robbin then slipped into her stunning lace bridal gown by San Patrick and bridal shoes by Sergio Rossi. Meanwhile Jamee, his best man and brother Monte and three groomsmen got into their tailor-made suits.
150 wedding guests attended their Banyan Tree Golf Course wedding, coming from the USA, UK, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore. A unique location underneath a banyan tree on the 1st hole of the fabulous championship golf course, at the Banyan Tree Golf Driving Range.
We took some our favourite images of the day; their wedding ceremony was stunning. Not a single detail missed thanks to the support of wedding planner Jeanette Skelton at Luxury Events Phuket and florists I am Flower.
