The key to planning a destination wedding is to hire a wedding planner whom you trust and leave everything to them. Also, make sure you have a good wedding photographer so that the beautiful venue and special moments are all captured. In this instance, both Hanngevent and Stories by Integricity did an awesome job. We can almost feel the stress this couple went through to put this together, but look how beautiful everything turned out to be.

Desmond: “For me, the weather and worrying about rain was the most stressful part. I prayed to the sky, the sea, and even to the coconut tree.”

Ping Ya: “The moment we exchanged vows has got to be one of the most memorable for me. We wanted a simple ceremony with only close friends and family members, and a great and unforgettable time of vacation together. It was a fantastic night that ended with fireworks.”

Tips from the bride: “Work with a wedding planner from the beginning, and be as detailed as you can. It is your wedding, after all. Greet and thank the team and hotel staff beforehand; they are key in ensuring that your wedding makes a lasting impression. Look for a hotel manager with a genuine passion for making your wedding a success. We found this person at Four Seasons Koh Samui, and we are now friends. To anyone planning a beach wedding, be warned: the stress of it raining is very real!”
