Remember November; a Purple Paradise

Only 2 weddings this month, but how lovely they both were!  First up we had Australian couple Courtney and Marcus for a small-but-perfectly-formed intimate gathering at Miskawaan The Residences.  The grey clouds kindly parted, making way for a gorgeous sunny beach ceremony and garden reception.  Courtney wore a classicly simple narrow-fitting dress with a wide black sash and her two sons did the honours of presenting the rings while the groom was trusted with the fireworks remote detonator switch.  Next were Brits Sam and Carl who exchanged their vows on our favourite spot of sand at Faraway Villa, Lipa Noi.  Sam wore a stunning strapless gown with full skirt and topped it off with a diamonte head band.  An outdoors dinner reception and fire dance show topped off a trully wonderful evening.  Both couples chose a purple colour theme so their photos go together very nicely indeed!

Enjoy the photos,
