Destination Wedding in Portugal

We were very excited to meet Marlene and Leslie after months of email correspondence and Skype chats. The bride-to-be is Portuguese and her fiance´s Irish and they both live in the City of New York. They came to Marlene´s homeland for their wedding. Here were guests from Ireland, coming from Leslie´s side, UK, USA and even Turkey! It was a particularly hot day but everyone just enjoyed one another´s company and the lovely rustic feel to Quinta de Sant´Ana.  The event was full of  heart-felt speeches,  laughs,  happy tears and some Irish and Portuguese song singing. We managed to steal our lovely couple for a chance to make the most of the beautiful vineyards at the back of the venue and take some portrait pictures.

Elopement in Santorini, Greece

Adriana and JR have decided to elope in one of the most beautiful locations in the world: Santorini Island.

This fascinating Volcano island has many special venues with breathtaking view on the caldera and the best moment for the vows exchange is during the amazing sunset on a terrace in front of the caldera.

The two of them alone have promised eternal love to each other in the magical atmosphere of the golden hour. For their special day Adriana and Jr have absolutely wanted Livio Lacurre to capture their magic moments.

Knowle Manor Weddings in Somerset

Knowle Manor weddings are a great setting to hold an exclusive British Country house wedding.

Gaby & Ben are based in New York but had wanted to have an authentic British wedding in a uniquely British setting.

In the shadow of Dunster Castle, this private house was the perfect place within which to bring both their US and UK friends together for a great weekend of celebration.

Married under the branches of a great Oak tree, followed by summer lawn games, lively wedding breakfast speeches and great first dance routines.  It was a great party and one I was sad to have to leave!

Chiangmai, Thailand Pre Wedding Photo ( Yi Peng – Loy Kratong Festival 2014)

Chiangmai, Thailand Pre wedding photo Bride & Groom : Diana & Chan Venue : Mae Klang Luang rice terrace – Doi Inthanon, Mon Jam, Mon Mong, Mon Kan Ing Doi, Mae Rim, Tha Phae Gate, Naowaraj Bridge, Mahawan Temple   About 6 months ago, I was so impressed when I received an e-mail from Diana and Chan from Singapore asking me if I can take the pre wedding photo at Loy Kratong festival in Chiangmai. I’ve started to find all information for her such as the locations, accommodation, theme, props and transportation. In 2014, Loy Kratong festival will be held from 5th – 7th November. It would be a full moon night.

The traditional kratong are made from a slice of banana tree trunk and decorated with folded banana leave, flower, incense sticks and a candle. The small coins are sometimes put into the kratong as offering to the river spirit. On the full moon night, Thai people will float their kratong on the river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. The festival may originate from an ancient ritual praying respect to the water spirits. Loy Kratong in Chiangmai is related to the Lanna (northern Thai) festival known as Yi Peng. The meaning of Yi is “two” and peng means a “full moon day”. The sky lantern (khom loi) are launched into the sky where they will look like the jellyfish. The sky looks so amazing and grateful from a large number of khom loi. We spent a few day in Chiangmai starting from taking pre wedding photography at Mae Klang Luang rice terrace that is located in Doi Inthanon. I made a real flower wedding dress for Diana from a inspiration wedding photo in Bali.

It took almost 4 hours to finish it. Diana look so stunning in the golden rice field like a goddess. The sunset was so beautiful and made her look glorious amidst the natural’s beauty. After that we went to Mon Mong – the mysterious resort that is located in the hills. The only way to get there is taking 4WD vehicle. We wake up in the morning and feel the fresh air that full of mist and fog. Today, I have made a flower crown for Diana. She looked like an angel. We leave Mon Mong to Mon Jam in the afternoon and had very delicious lunch in a restaurant at the top of the hill. The view is so stunning too. After taking some photographs at Mon Jam, we went to the flower garden in Mae Rim and Baan Mon Fai to change Diana from a vintage girl to Lanna lady. She was so gorgeous in every dress. That night, the tourists and pass by pedestrian wanted to take the photo of them. They looked like a movie star.

We spent the Loy Kratong Festival at Tha Phae Gate and floating kratong at Nawaraj bridge where the sky lanterns were floating here.

Love Leaw

Romantic Beach Wedding in Victoria, BC, Canada

I am so pleased to feature the wedding of Raquel and Brian!  These two have an international love story.  Raquel is from Spain, and Brian from Canada.  They met while studying abroad in Europe, and quickly fell in love.  If your early relationship can handle travelling together all day every day in close quarters, I think it’s safe to say you have a very bright future full of love and great memories.  They were married on the beach in Cordova Bay, and their little dog Monty played ring bearer, and also posed for some photos with his family.  The reception was just steps away at the Beach House.  And just in case you thought this couple couldn’t get any cuter, Brian surprised Raquel at the reception with a serenade.  This couple is simply amazing, I think you will agree.  Have a look!
