Gabrielle & Gareth   ♥   Phuket, Thailand

Photographer:   Hilary Cam Photography

 

Of all the beautiful sandy shores there are in the world upon which to tie the knot, the destination ceremonies in Thailand always look like pure wedded bliss.

 

The gorgeous Gabrielle and Gareth, like many couples, decided to get married abroad as it provided a midway point for their families who are from opposite corners of the globe – South Africa and Australia. The picturesque island of Phuket was their destination, the secluded beach of Kata Noi Bay was to be their dreamy big day setting.

 

Gabrielle looked every bit the beautiful boho bride with a delicate headdress, floating veil and a chic and unique layered gown. Oh and of course, who could forget her strappy gold Choo’s and matching clutch bag – the ultimate in finishing touches!

 

As always, today’s flyaway couple added their own personal touch to their destination wedding with brightly coloured sunglasses and fans as favours for their guests and they enchanced their blissful beachfront wedding ceremony with traditional Jewish customs. The wedding party then headed on to the pure white sands to watch with wonder as the sun set over the ocean to a vibrant display of pink, violet and scarlet hues – destination wedding perfection!

“It’s not every day we get to combine our two favourite things – travelling and photography – but every so often a generous couple like Gabby and Gareth provide us that opportunity.”

 

“We turned up in Thailand and were glad we had arrived with a day to acclimatise – it was hot and humid! So much so that going outside our air-conditioned room caused all our lenses to fog. While the heat was an obstacle, we had on our side an attractive couple and scenery.”

“Gareth proposed to Gabrielle in South Africa where she grew up. Their choice of Phuket for their wedding was due to it being between South Africa and Australia, so both families could easily travel and share the day.”

 

“The Jewish ceremonies scattered throughout the day were full of energy and warmth, matched by the stunning beach sunset that seemed to go on forever – something we have missed since returning to the eastern shores of Sydney.”
