Parisian Rustic Island Wedding
Chloé and Matt Chapter 1/3: Boat Cruise
The destination wedding weekend of Chloé and Matt on Koh Yao Yai, Thailand, was a celebration of life, culture and love.
Parisians Chloé and Matt had called Bangkok their home for the past 5 years and felt deeply grateful for their time in Thailand. With their extrovert personalities and high energy, they share a passion for living life to the fullest. It was no wonder that they decided on having a leaving party, a wedding and a family reunion all in one incredible weekend on the beautiful island of Koh Yao Yai.
It was clear from the beginning that the emphasis of the weekend was for their loved ones as much as it was for themselves. They dreamt that their friends and family would have the time of their lives and honored me with the task of capturing authentic moments to commemorate their adventures in Thailand.
They booked out the villas at Koh Yao Yai Village Hotel for all their guests and prepared a packed itinerary that included a catamaran cruise, 3 nights of parties and a brunch pool party.
On the first day of events, and straight after checking I jumped onboard Hype Luxury Boat Club for what was meant to be a scenic tour around Phuket on a catamaran. The weather turned quickly with dark stormy skies, heavy rain and rough seas and the scenic tour had to take a detour. Regardless of the circumstances, they stayed in high spirits; dancing in the rain and swimming in the ocean after drinking tons of champagne that their friends brought over from France. Everyone had a blast - and what a memorable story to tell!
What an epic start to their adventurous wedding weekend. Stay tuned for chapter II, their beautifully rustic chic wedding on the beach.
