Dominic and Lauren contacted me to be their wedding couple for their destination beach resort wedding…at where else? The Four Seasons Langkawi. They were a really very sweet couple and had a touching wedding on the beach conducted by one of their friends who flew in from the USA. Lauren had thought things out well. She had brought print outs on how she wanted her hair and make up to look which really helped the makeup and hair stylists. Another great idea was printing out name badges for everyone. You know how awkward it can be to be faced with a lot of new strangers/friends and remembering every ones name can be a chore. This was a simple fix!
Fortunately it wasn’t crazy hot on this occasion however I still remember how hard it was to run up the beach and stairs to get the wide overlooking photo featured in the set below. Why run? Beach and “modern” weddings are really fast! 5-10 minutes max for the ceremony, so its a good idea to have two photographers (like we usually do) to get as many angles as quickly as possible.
Regarding the dinner: In the Serai which is where it often is. There was a karaoke going most of the night and I think everyone except me had a turn! lots of fun and the party just didn’t stop. Exactly how I like them.
Hope you enjoy the photos.
