Real Wedding – Bec + Ben
Brisbane-based cuties, Bec and Ben, decided on a relaxed, elegant Thailand wedding after saying “YES” on holiday there a year earlier.
Ana Lui captured every paradise-perfect moment that was infused with a modern, minimalist design as planned and styled by destination dream-team, white+white and Isla & Smith.
Bec said, “After reading a few wedding blogs, everyone recommended using a wedding planner for destination weddings, and with hectic jobs, I didn’t need any further convincing! It was the best decision we’ve ever made – for us, it made the entire process a dream and we could have never have achieved what the ladies pulled together. I had to continually pinch myself on the night, it was breath-taking. Danielle and Lisa were brilliant to work with, and are the masters of the industry.”
The Bride’s stunning dress was designed by Gwendolynne Burkin of Gwendolynne based in Melbourne.
The wedding venue was dressed with native Thai flowers such as orchids and lush greenery, and we used them in abundance in the ceremony and reception. We focused on a clean, minimalist colour palette to compliment the venue.
Traditionally, the style of flowers in Thailand are tightly arranged with lots of ribbon, but Bec decided to strip everything back to have a much more relaxed, effortless vision, with hand tied orchid stems and hanging orchids in watercolour shades. The result was breathtaking!
We also created a bespoke tablescape design, by incorporating clear glass wine bottles with tapered candles, lush greenery and stylish letterpress menus with silver foiling to announce the abundance of (incredible) food that was coming. We also arranged local fire dancers who put on an amazing show just before midnight.
Everything was simply perfect. Venue, food, decorations, dress and the vibe with all the guests were super relaxed and having fun! It was an incredible experience. To see the full collection, visit Style Me Pretty – Relaxed, Elegant Thailand Destination Wedding.
