Last season, we officially decided we needed to step out of the already settled work scheme and let our imagination flow more. We believe we were lucky enough to get to know a number of truly talented professionals, photographers from around the world, and they were very supportive and eager to work together in creating something new and interesting for the Thailand wedding scene.
Saya, a talented young girl and the founder of French creative wedding community Studio Ohlala, reached out to us in her interest to create a styled shoot that can uniquely reflect a distinctive Thai culture. We called it Tropical Sunshine, and it became the alliance between two cultures, French and Thai.
Thailand, the land of smiles, lush forests, and white sand beaches is undoubtedly a perfect destination for holidays. However, over the last years, it’s also gaining more and more popularity as a wedding destination. Couples from all over the world, including Europe, America, Australia, and vast Asian regions fly over to Thailand to celebrate their love for each other, both in an intimate setting for two or through a big party with their family and friends. Away from the tourist crowds, and the bustle of busy areas, Phuket also has a number of serene and exclusive places for a romantic wedding getaway. One of them is Anantara Phuket Villas Mai Khao, a haven of peace located in the north of the island. Just entering the property you will feel a welcoming gesture of Thai hospitality, with a background of the cultural and natural heritage of Thailand, only carefully faceted with a touch of luxury.
Cut off from the rest of the world, it is in the cool shadow under the fresh banana leaves that the shooting takes place. A gateway made of teak wood guides us to our private villa with its private swimming pool, an outdoor bathtub filled with orchid flowers, and a delicate aroma of jasmine. A loving couple, exclusive location, exotic yet elaborate decor, — what else could you possibly need for a dream wedding in Thailand? A subtle balance between modernity, luxury, and Thai tradition seems to be a perfect solution for a romantic elopement of one’s dreams.
It was also followed by a romantic dinner for two, with delicious Thai food from talented Anantara Mai Khao’s chef, and sunset portrait session on the beach.
