Come and take a minute or two to check out this pretty in pink (and purple and aqua!) wedding in Thailand. Honestly, you’ll probably need more than a few minutes once you start browsing through Blush Photography‘s beautiful captures of Lynn and Matt’s wedding in tropical paradise. To amplify the romance, IAMFLOWER adorned the sweetest pink and ivory blooms to anything, including the sweet floral crowns the bridesmaids and the flower girl wore! Not only are the landscape views out of this world, but The Wedding Bliss Thailand certainly did a number on the styling of this wedding; it’s as dreamy as you’d expect a tropical beach wedding would be with your nearest and dearest.
From the bride, Lynn: We met at work… our desks being next to each other, we locked eyes and the rest as they say, is history! I thought Matt was very sweet on my first day at work, plus he’s easy on the eyes too! I found out years later that he told one of our common friends that he thought I was “well fit” (a British slang referring to attractiveness, not physical fitness). Matt surprised me by organising a romantic beach picnic with 3 course meal at Canggu beach in Bali. He had a small bag with him the whole time and I thought that we would be staying the night at Hotel Tugu. As the sun set, he took out a photo album that he had made earlier. It was very sweet and romantic. On the last page of the album, there was an envelope and inside was a small note with the inscription “Will you marry me?” in tiny handwriting. Matt then took out the ring, and got on his knees to propose. Of course, I said Yes immediately!
We have always liked Thailand, having travelled there a few times and Matt has spent a few months there during his gap year. We decided on Phuket because it’s beautiful and easily accessible for our family and friends that were travelling from Australia, UK and South East Asia. Also, my family are mostly in Australia and Matt’s family are based in UK, so Thailand was the half way point for our families. Destination weddings always feel more relaxed and enjoyable, guests are on holiday mode and not worrying about work. We fell in love with The Naka Phuket resort, it had everything we needed to create our perfect dream wedding.
Our favourite moment from the day apart from the ‘I do’s (of course!) has to be the fireworks at the end of the wedding reception. We had just finished our first dance and speeches and so could relax! We had also kept the fireworks as a big surprise for months and loved seeing the reaction on our guests’s faces when the fireworks lit up the sky over the beach.
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I highly recommend employing the service of a wedding planner to help organize your wedding, they really do take some of the hassle out of planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding where you may not be familiar with their local vendors. Some further advice we received from friends that are married, try to enjoy the day as the day will whizz by very fast. Also, keep your phones at home on your wedding day to reduce any further stress and distractions, or ask one of your bridesmaids or groomsmen to take care of those matters for you. During the ceremony, it’s a good idea for your celebrant to announce to guests that mobile phones/cameras are forbidden during the ceremony, to ensure that everyone are focused and not distracted with trying to take nice photographs (which you already have a professional photographer to do that job for you!)
From the wedding planners, The Wedding Bliss Thailand: Lynn and Matt’s wedding was a very personal, intimate affair set at a beautiful beachfront luxury resort in Thailand. With their playful, yet nature-loving and romantic personalities, we created a wedding designed to reflect who they are: from a romantic ceremony in pink and purple tones, a cocktail reception where guests enjoyed champagne and writing messages to a happy couple on a vintage typewriter, to the dinner, decorated with tender flowers, playful little cacti as a name cards, and CDs with soulful playlist, created personally by the bride and the groom as favours to their guests.
