Private Villa Wedding at Bann Chang Thai

Intimate Private Villa Wedding in Phuket

Here is a Phuket, Thailand private luxury villa wedding of Kory & Ashley at Bann Chang Thai Villa I shot recently. This wedding to me stuck out because it was such an intimate and relaxed event. Kory & Ashley from America (Ashley originally from Vietnam) had their very closest friends and family attend totalling 20 people at this lovely Thai themed villa on a perfect sunny Phuket day in June. The ceremony was beautiful with both the bride and the groom sharing not only their vows but stories about each other and how they met causing tears from everyones eyes!. After the ceremony followed a nice dinner and setting where the guests all made a speech, then after dinner was a full on water fight with water balloons!, lol I was not told about this so imagine the panic my team and I were in trying to hide our expensive camera gear away from the action!. To end the formalities they had a fire spinner show followed by some fireworks. What a beautiful day!, enjoy the photo gallery.

The Phuket, Thailand destination wedding of Charlene & Ray from Hong Kong at The Naka Resort.

One of my favourite resort venues in Phuket is The Naka Resort, I love it for its shades, shadows and highlights that I get to play with while capturing a wedding, it allows me to get creative with colours, use a highly technical photography tricks to manipulate lighting to give that “high dynamic range” people are raving about!.

If you pay attention to my work/blogs you will notice a difference in styles in almost each one, this is because I believe that every wedding, its venue, its lighting, its time/kind of day is different so as a professional photographer I adapt to optimise the quality of my product and the general mood of the wedding… I am also continuously learning new tricks, new techniques and forever evolving with photography times!.

On this wedding day of Charlene & Ray we had a great verity of light to work with because one minute we would have clear blue skys with lots of sunshine and the next minute it was overcast or partly sunny/cloudy. During the ceremony we hard a rare case of stormy clouds in the background with sun shining bright on the green lawn overlooking the beach which made a very dramatic look!, normally Im not a big fan of cloudy sky’s but when the 2 mix (sun/clouds) its just an unreal experience for all to witness and lots of fun for us photographers!

Nathan & Yin Phuket wedding at the Pullman Resort


Nathan & Yin Phuket, Thailand destination wedding at the Pullman Arcadia Resort Naithon Beach.

A mix of Chinese traditional morning gate crash & tea ceremony followed by a western ceremony on the hotels deck… The day started out early with the madness of the Chinese gate crash where the bridesmaid make the groom & groomsman prove they are worthy enough by doing some really funny yet torturous things till the girls give in and hand the groom over to the bride… The gate crash & tea ceremony is an age-old Chinese tradition that has evolved through the centuries, I wish in the western cultures we had something like this, its allot of fun to watch and can image even a better time participating in the games!.

After the morning ceremony we took the bridal party for a quick photoshoot before lunch, then it was time to get ready for the western ceremony on the deck of the resort. Simple but lovely ceremony with an exchange of vows & rings, once the ceremony was over it was time to relax (for the couple that is). We did a quick portrait session on the beach and around the resort and caught the most beautiful sunset that brought out some really amazing colors and contrasts!.

Miss Singapore International Vanessa Sim & Kristian Phuket wedding at The NAKA Resort

A warm partly cloudy breezy day in Phuket for Kristian & Vanessa’s destination wedding in Phuket, Thailand. I started with the girls as usual then made my way over to the boys (grooms) private villa which was just about 15-20min from the Naka Resort. The boys were really chilled out compared to most, not nervous one bit, the groom seemed confident and ready to go so I only need about 15-20 min with them to capture some candid moments and a few portraits then my videography team and photography team had to rush back to the bride to get more of the details and getting ready moments just before the start of the ceremony. I was a little pressed for time but I just had to get a few with the bride, did I mention the bride Vanessa Sim was the former “Miss Singapore International 2014” and a contestant for the “Miss International”?, so a moment for a portrait was a must!…. The ceremony was lovely and everything went according to plan, we had some cloud cover from the portraits so I couldnt play with the lighting but we had that soft flattering light that made an already beautiful couple shine!. During the middle of the dinner we had to move to “plan B” as a little rain started to come in, but good thing the wedding planner “The Bridal Planners Phuket” was ready!, everyone shifted inside in a timely manner and the night carried on wonderfully as planned!.
