Imagine exchanging your vows overlooking the gorgeous Andaman Ocean, in the presence of your closest friends and family, with the salty sea breeze in your hair and soft sand between your toes. That’s exactly what this bride and groom did. The bride looked resplendent in her lace-back mermaid-style wedding gown, which was perfectly complemented by her bridal bouquet of white roses and flowers. Many thanks to Andy Phe Photography for these incredibly stunning shots.

Shirlene: “It’s difficult to pinpoint a specific memorable moment as the whole wedding was a dream come true. Everything was exactly as we wanted and this wouldn’t have been possible without the attentiveness and hospitality of Outrigger and Creative Events Asia. We were amazed by how well we were treated as soon as we stepped onto the private beach of Outrigger Koh Phi Phi: from the staff waiting by the beach with trays of delicious and refreshing coconut pineapple slushies to being greeted and congratulated by every staff member in the resort wherever we went. Everything was beyond our expectations!

“We wanted a laidback casual wedding where our guests could relax and have fun. Since tying the knot is a very special occasion, we didn’t want to limit it to one day of fun. That’s why we opted for a destination wedding where everyone could have a vacation at the same time. Since our guests were coming from different countries (Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia) and needed to travel, we opted for a venue that was close by and relatively easy to get to, all while giving everyone a slice of paradise. We chose turquoise as our wedding colour to match the colour of the crystal clear ocean of Koh Phi Phi.”

Tips from the bride: “For every bride with a budget, choose 3 things that are important to you and splurge on those. For me, they were our rings, as they will be the symbol of our marriage that we’ll carry with us for the rest of our lives; our photographer, as he’ll be the one capturing all the special moments for us; and the wedding venue. For us, the venue determined everything else, as they were in charge of most aspects of our wedding, including the ceremony, reception, decorations, flowers, cake and menu.

“I did a lot of my wedding planning online and Etsy is a good website to find customised wedding items. Finally, be prepared for things to not go perfectly as planned, and when that happens, relax and just go with the flow. The most important thing is for you to enjoy every moment of your special day and not let small issues ruin it.”
