Krabi in Thailand! We were certainly glad to be invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand for this familiarisation trip to Krabi, in collaboration with weddingsmalaysia. Together with wedding industry colleagues such as MomentoWedding, Stories.my, Armadale Weddings and Eventistry, it was indeed an eye-opening experience.
The well-organised trip gave us an introduction to the opportunities that Krabi offers for destination pre-wedding photography as well as destination weddings. Naturally, visiting resorts that host destination weddings was on the itinerary, and these included Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi where we also stayed, Beyond Krabi Resort, Anyavee Tubkaek Beach Resort, Tup Kaek Sunset Beach Resort, dusitD2 Ao Nang Krabi, The ShellSea Krabi, Aonang Princeville Villa Resort & Spa, Krabi Resort as well as Holiday Inn Resort Krabi Ao Nang Beach. Other than locations for weddings within these resorts, we also had the chance to inspect areas that were suited to photography, and we must say that the sunset views on Ao Nang Beach were truly spectacular.
A trip to Thailand is never complete without the fantastic cuisine and hospitality of the Thai people. We even had a go at Muay Thai! Such experiences are what make a familiarisation trip unique and enjoyable too.
One highlight of the trip was the opportunity to photograph a couple to create a portfolio of work which we can then share with our clients in Malaysia. Koh Hong Beach and Koh Hong Lagoon were the panoramic locations chosen for the shoot and as these photos depict, they certainly make scenic backdrops for pre-wedding shoots. We look forward to returning to Krabi soon, and hopefully with soon-to-be-wed couples in tow for their destination shoot.
Below are some highlight photos of the unforgettable trip !
