A Phuket destination wedding…
On the second day of Shafeena & Derek’s weekend long celebrations – they married as the sun began to set over the beach, under the pine trees of the Siriwat National Park, drank lemongrass cocktails and ate the most incredible Thai food, danced under the stars (seriously – these guys can dance, I’m exhausted even thinking about it), enjoyed pyrotechnics, got driven around in air conditioned vans whilst all the guests had to sit on tradition Thai buses waiting for me to take photos, wandered along the beach as the sun set; watched me wade out into the sea avoiding floating bits of flotsam as I had a specific shot in mind and generally had an awesome time. By the time everyone formed a conga line, dancing around the grounds of the Indigo Pearl, I knew I loved this bunch!
There’s something about working somewhere brand new, somewhere exotic that really excites most visual people – new sights, new smells, gorgeous light, that made this such a treat to photograph.
As before, the wedding was shot at the Indigo Pearl in Nai Yang, Phuket and the day was co-ordinated by Jeanette at Luxury Events Phuket .
As always I hope a picture can tell the story of the day way more effectively than I can by trying to describe, after all, images are my trade, so here we go…
I love to travel and see new places, so if you’re planning a wedding in sunnier (or in fact not so sunny) climes, then do get in touch, you might be surprised that the quote isn’t quite as astronomical as you might expect!
