Koh Samui wedding photography //

These ten days in Thailand were life changing for so many reasons and despite being a little behind on admin this year, it’s taken me the best part of 5 months to come around to blogging this wedding as I wasn’t sure I could find the words to introduce it.

Abi and I first started speaking on Facebook around 3 years ago, when she and Rob were initially planning to wed in the UK. Our communications were on and off for a while, until she messaged to say that Rob had been teaching in Thailand for an extended period of time and they had decided that the country meant so much to them that they were shifting the wedding plans over to the island of Koh Samui. I can’t even express how grateful I am that their story unfolded in this manner. A few months later I went down to visit them in Kent for a pre wedding shoot on the (much colder!) beach and was instantly taken with how effortless their love is, and how open and welcome they were to the prospect of my joining them in Thailand.

Fast forward to August 2016 and I was about to board my plane. It was the first time I had been away from Jesse for that length of time, and actually the first time I had been away on my own for that length of time; my life was so ready for it.

It turned out to be the experience of a lot of firsts. First time drinking cosmopolitans for breakfast (at lunch time, come on, jet lag!), first time on a moped (and second, and third – I fell in love and kept renting it out), first time speeding on a jet ski (after signing a waiver to say I confirmed I had no insurance…), first time on a speedboat, first time caught in torrential rain on said speedboat, first time photographing a wedding in Asia, first time drinking Chang beer and first time truly adoring the suffocating heat.

Completely without the intention of doing so I learnt so much about myself and what I would accept in life from this journey; what I would accept from myself and especially what I would accept from love. Abi and Rob are the best of friends and it’s evident in every look they give each other. Relationships are made on the smallest and perhaps most menial of details but these two make those very things important and it’s such an honour to witness.

I hope you enjoy the images.
