THE WEDDING ATMOSPHERE IN PHUKET
Being a wedding photographer is also discovering countries, neighborhoods and also places. Phuket is a big peninsula and I did not know its residential neighborhoods. We were on the morning of the wedding day, the GPS told us to turn on a road that didn’t really look like a road to start a climb. We are gradually moving away from the city and on the road appeared more and more vegetation. We took the height and saw a breathtaking view of the ocean.
James and Kay met in China and live today in England. They are very refined and elegant and with so much love for each other. I had joined them the day before the wedding for a morning shoot on a beach that I had spotted a few days earlier. The access to the beach was closed, but I didn’t want to leave them before doing this pre wedding photo shoot with these two. So it was between the stalls of the fishermen who sold their freshly caught fish and the first tourist boats on the beach that we did the pre wedding photos session in the most tourist area of Phuket. We laughed, life was taking place around us little by little.
THE WEDDING VENUE : VILLA AYE
It’s in this residential area that James and Kay chose to get married. They privatize two villas to host their guests. Villa Aye and Villa Paa Talee are not far from each other and very different in terms of architecture. James and Kay chose Villa Aye for its views, its traditional architecture and tranquility. It was good to see the family circulating around our lovers during the get ready and to feel the time of the wedding as at home.
A SPECIAL SOUVENIR OF THIS WEDDING IN PHUKET
When the evening turned into improvised karaoke. All of James's friends got around him and sing Chinese songs in front of Kay. A real meeting for me with Chinese culture and it was really great to live as a wedding photographer.
