Destination Wedding in Renaissance Phuket Thailand

Destination wedding in Phuket

Destination weddings are always a great source of inspiration for photographers and videographers.

We love to travel because everytime we receive a reward in experience and creativity. Mancy and Arnold’s wedding was an amazing opportunity to meet a wonderful couple as well as visit the beautiful island of Phuket in Thailand.

Their venue was the Renaissance Phuket Resort & Spa located near some unspoiled beaches in the north of the island, quite far from the Phuket’s vibrant nightlife. It was a fantastic ceremony and they exchange vows of eternal love on the beach of Renaissance Resort and its luxurious beachfront.

I was already traveling in Asia, and had just come back from Maldives fora video created for the Maldives Government and Maldive Alternative shown at the Expo in Milan

Arnold and Mancy both live in Hong Kong and work for Dior, but Mancy’s family is from France and the groom from US. However, since they are originally both from China, they felt the need to honor their roots by having a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony before their romantic Western beachfront ceremony.

We had the opportunity to work again with one of the best destination wedding photographer named Vangelis (our “master of light!”) and his friend the photographer Nikos Gogas. It was great to cooperate again with him and witness their fine and elegant style.

For the first time we had the honor to meet the best make-up artist in Thailand, WOW Make Up. She is so talented and really not just professional but even a true artist.

This wedding was in February 2015. Our first wedding of the wedding season, a great way to start the amazing working season that has just finished!

So thank you Mancy and Arnold for your elegance and kindness, thank you Vangelis for inviting us and your pleasant way to be and work. We wish to all of you all the best.

Luxury wedding venue on Lake Garda

This is our first wedding video made at Lake Garda. We were very excited by this opportunity because every environment creates a different inspiration for us. Our work and main objective is making the wedding video which always requires a new concept and inspiration of the location.

To see this location and get to know the couple before the wedding we left very early. I was in the city of Sirmione few years ago but I didn`t remember that it was such a picturesque location.
This castle is very fascinating and it extends out in this strip of land that enters into Lake Garda.

The whole event was followed by Victoria Donkina, a talented wedding planner of Russian origin who organizes fairytale weddings throughout Italy and abroad. It ‘s always a pleasure to work with her because of the serenity with which she faces every event and all the possible problems that may occur during the day. She’s very professional and always ready to solve any problem calmly and with a nice smile.

After having examined the location during a beautiful sunny day, we went to our hotel to get some rest as the day of the filming was supposed to be very long.

When we woke up in the morning an unexpected surprise was waiting for us. The fog filled up the sky and the visibility of the previous day was reduced by 95%. It was impossible to distinguish the horizon and the grayish color of the lake from the grayish color of the sky. We felt very bad about it thinking that this was unlucky for us as we wouldn’t be able to exploit the potential of this exclusive location, but we were wrong. The light rain and the grayish colors actually began to offer us some very interesting and unexpected colors that created a charm of rays of the light and the gray colors which inspired us all in a completely unexpected way.

We saw that the bride stood out beautifully and the fog worked like a soft box photo inside the apartment creating a soft and gentle light that brought out the beauty of the couple.

All the specific details from the bride and the groom were very elegant in style and you could see the delicacy of their feelings to each other. It was a very intimate event with about 15 guests and the preparation of the couple took place in a very picturesque location called Villa Pioppi Sirmione from where we moved by boat driven by a very nice boatman toward the location of the ceremony.

I think it is one of the most beautiful locations we have ever been to. We liked working there very much at the famous Villa Borghese located on the Island of Garda. The Villa is very particular and unique because of the its architecture and gardens which creates an excellent place for a fairytale wedding. When we arrived to the island the sky was clear and allowed the sun to make us a beautiful gift showing us all the colors that this location has to offer.

We are very happy that the wedding video turned out the way it did and got the quality that it deserved. We made a video highlights as we usually do and this time it’s a trailer. We wanted to show only the emotions and the beauty of the place leaving behind some details of the event and the guests. We also made a complete video of the wedding where all the details of the wedding day were included.
