Alternative London wedding photographer – A Wat Arun Bangkok engagement shoot, Thailand destination wedding – Lilly & Kyle
When my alarm chimed to wake me 6am, I silently cursed myself at having organised a photoshoot so early in the day. Though after taking a boat ride across the Chao Phraya river that runs through Bangkok to meet engaged New Zealanders Lilly & Kyle for their Bangkok engagement shoot ahead of their Thailand destination wedding. The hazy morning sunshine & nigh-deserted Wat Arun (aptly named ‘Temple of the Dawn’) made it completely worthwhile. The couple had flown to Thailand with plans to have their Koh Phi Phi elopement wedding a few days later on a southern Thailand beach & wanted a photographic record of their adventure. As the golden sun rose across the city of Bangkok, the city came to life & tourists poured in to the temple in perfecting timing just as we completed our engagement photoshoot in Bangkok. It was a real honour to be able to capture these special memories for such a sweet & loving couple, & I feel blessed to have a backdrop so beautiful as these ancient Bangkok temples. Lilly & Kyle – thank you for setting your alarms early & I wish you so much love for your married life. See you in New Zealand sometime! Nx
