Why did you choose a destination wedding?
Our families live on opposite sides of the world, we wanted to find a halfway point so that as many family members and friends could share our special day.
Why did you select the destination and venue you did?
We chose Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Hua Hin because of the beautiful colonial buildings, garden settings and beachfront location.
Did you have guests attend, and if so, what was their reaction to you having a destination wedding?
We had 45 guests coming from around the world. Our guests couldn’t have been more supportive.
What is your favourite memory of the day?
Walking down the long aisle, seeing each other and saying our vows in front of our families and friends. We both released lanterns on the beach which is a Thai tradition for good luck to top off the night.
What was the best thing about having a destination wedding?
It was like a big holiday shared with our family and closest friends and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
What theme or style did you base your wedding decorations on?
Fresh purple, pink and white flowers decorated the whole area from the entrance to seating and centrepieces.
How did your wedding coordinator assist you?
All the details were covered to ensure that the wedding went smoothly. We were both able to share every single moment of our special day.
Did you honeymoon in the same location?
We flew to Koh Samui for our honeymoon so we could spend time together.
