I flew across oceans to a land quite the feel of home, here is my first ever wedding destination Phuket, Thailand!
I was overwhelmingly welcomed by the most wonderful Linden and Steven, who contacted me in short notice prior to their wedding celebration, without hesitation and a lot of excitement, I was glad to have had the chance to meet and photograph the two.
Coming from two different hemispheres of the world (Linden from Melbourne, while Steven was from San Diego). Their first ever encounter begun in Thailand, as you could’ve imagined the long distance relationship, how strong they’ve stayed with all the countless hours of Skype and flights across the globe to see each other the relieve came when they decided to tie the knot right in the heart of where they first met, Thailand.
The wedding took place at a nice resort by the beach in Patong, at the ceremony a blessing was made by Steven’s brother, Michael. They were brothers who got along so well, but it wasn’t so well with the weather that day which looked a little dull and poured a little rain, nevertheless the rain poured at the most perfect timing just as the first dance begun, it roared the night, the two and guests who surely knew how to party till they drop. This was surely not a moment to be missed we couldn’t let the rain stop neither one of us, so with the help of a very large beach table umbrella my second shooter Adi and I got down to the dance floor to capture the exhilaration.
I couldn’t have been more happier to see Linden and Steven hand in hand forever after.
