Relaxed Elegant Thailand Wedding
Thailand is close to my heart and I always dreamed of shooting a wedding there, so when Lisa from Isla and Smith emailed me asking if I'm free to shoot Bec’s and Ben’s wedding I jumped up with excitement. After a brief chat with the bride to be we booked the flights and packed our camera bags. I am so happy to have been there for Bec and Ben, and also to work alongside super talented and crazy organized Danielle and Lisa! And I'm super proud of having this stunning wedding featured on the front page of Style Me Pretty!
When I was shooting Bec getting ready I couldn’t wait for her to put her stunning dress on! Her dress was designed by Gwendolynne Burkin of Gwendolynne based in Melbourne.
Bec and Ben are both based in Brisbane, the capital city of QLD, Australia. Bec works for an International Publisher in a Content Management and Global Operations role, and Ben is working in a Business Development role for a new start-up.
They got engaged in April 2014 while holidaying in Phuket, Thailand. While enjoying a two week holiday at The Pullman Arcadia, Ben proposed about half way through the trip. He had arranged for champagne to be delivered to the Sunset Deck and the new happy couple watched the sunset and enjoyed some bubbles. Right then and there they knew they wanted a destination wedding.
Everything was simply perfect. Venue, food, decorations, dress and the vibe with all the guests were super relaxed and having fun! It was an incredible experience to photograph their wedding day as well as the boat trip around the bay of Phuket. I shot hybrid – both digital and film – and I’m very happy with the results.
