A destination beach wedding in Thailand

If you're looking for inspiration for a destination wedding in Thailand, look no further than Agi and Daniel's breathtaking, beachside big day. The happy couple soaked up the relaxed holiday feel of Phuket and the stunning sunset backdrop, saying 'I do' with an intimate group of family and friends. Filled with foliage and a touch of gold, this tropical ceremony was an international affair, officiated by a Polish yogi - amazing!

The bride's heart skipped a beat when she watched her step-daughter walk down the aisle to Sigur Ros - it was the absolute best feeling of the day! The special family moments didn't stop there with two surprise letters arriving for Agi from her mother and brother, who couldn't be there, bringing tears to the happy bride's eyes. As the celebrations continued the newlyweds incorporated traditions from the bride's heritage with the guests toasting to her late fathers honour with Palinka (a strong, traditional fruity spirit) with everyone attempting to say 'Egeszsegedre!', Hungarian for 'Cheers!'.

Date: March 17th, 2017

Photographer: Ildiko Photography. "We had a natural connection as she is Hungarian but she is also an amazingly talented wedding photographer. The pictures speak for themselves!"

Dress: Pronovias. "I felt so elegant and beautiful! How every bride should feel on their special day."

"I wore a cathedral length veil which was my borrowed piece on the day from a friend. It completed the look perfectly!"

Jewellery: Wedding bands by Penny Gilbert, pearl earrings from Tiffany & Co and Swarovski. "My wedding band was specially made using my late Dad's wedding ring, resized and attached to my wedding band. It means the world to me that a little part of his life is always with me."

Grooms suit: Dress shorts and shirt from ASOS.

Bridesmaid dresses: ASOS. "The challenge was to find a dress and material that both my Maid of Honour and my
bridesmaid (my 11 year old step daughter) could wear."

Hair & Makeup: Hair by Nicola Bradley and makeup by Khun Oy.

Planner: Luxury Events Phuket. "They did everything! I encourage everyone planning an overseas wedding to have a planner as it saved us both a lot of work, time and money. The team was absolutely brilliant and made sure all our expectations were met and everything ran smoothly. "

Stationery: Created by friend of the bride Melissa Moustacas. "They were simple with a touch of elegance!"

Flowers: Iamflower. "The bouquets were made out of lotus flowers which I loved and felt was unique. Most of the decor was foliage with a small amount of white flowers."

Ceremony, Reception & Catering: Sala Resort and Spa, Phuket. "It's an exclusive, boutique resort with beautiful private villas and large balcony suites to cater for everyone. We wanted a venue where we wouldn't have big groups of walk-by traffic and other tourists around when we say 'I do'."

Celebrant: Marek Koperski. "He's a Polish yogi who's been living all over the World and in the past few years made Phuket his home. He was absolutely amazing and brought his own flair. He was extremely organized and helped us with all the details. Highly recommended!"

"We were going to have Western style dinner then last minute we've changed our minds to Thai when we realised that we would be crazy not to go with the cuisine they are expert at. There was more food than we could eat and everyone loved it."

Cake: Peter from Les Diables. "We had mixed berry and coconut dacquoise."

Lighting: Charlie Lighting. "The lighting created a beautiful atmosphere!"

Entertainment: DJ Nicola Vega. "Nicola was brilliant at reading the crowd and playing the right music at any given time."

Favours: Marble coasters with Hungarian engraving by Ben from Evright. "We used the coasters as name tags which created the perfect finish to our table decoration."
