A Destination Wedding in Phuket

Destination weddings are such a joy to plan. Everyone is always smiling since it is considered a holiday, there are countless get- together(s) before and after the wedding day, guests get a chance to sunbathe and glow on the day of and everyone is just in such a fantastic mood. For a planner, destination weddings are always fun because the sky is the limit. The canvas is different and we are able to create a totally different style to what is typically Singapore. 

Reenie and Adam met about 2 years ago and were a delight to work with. Very easy going, happy faces and totally in love. There were no a signs of stress on their faces as we went through document by document on food selection, flower designs, seating plans, gown designs and so on. 

Reenie made her gown plus the bridesmaids dresses with Ee-lyn from We Love Yu in Singapore (she is fantastic, so please check out her website). The gown was a simple, satin bustier with pleats and gemstones on the side. The bridesmaids dresses were similar, just shorter and in lilac with a deep purple sash across the waist. The colours were lovely and suited a beach wedding perfectly.
The wedding took place along the private beach of Le Meridian Hotel, Phuket. The ceremony started at about 6pm with the magnificent backdrop of the sunset, followed by cocktails and a dinner reception after - all outdoors! Here are some of my favorite pictures for your enjoyment. 

We had a blast on this trip, planning, coordinating and making sure every detail was right on spec. It can be quite difficult when you are not in control of the vendors so checking and double checking is key. Be sure to expect surprises!

The only regret we have? Not bringing our cameras for the after party held in the hotel's underground club - it was a wild night!! 

So, to Reenie and Adam, here is wishing you a lifetime of happiness and joy! May your adventures begin!
