Krabi Wedding Photographer

There is something uniquely different about a Krabi wedding. Perhaps it’s because it’s Thailand’s oldest history of continued settlement or the warm welcome of the Muslim population. But one thing for sure is its stunning views that make the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.
I have loved photographing all over this amazing province and want to share some of my favourite Krabi wedding venues with you.

Rayavadee Railay Krabi

When you mention a Krabi wedding most people think of Railay Beach (also known as Rai Leh). Located between Krabi City and Ao Nang it is a small peninsula that can only be reached by boat, as the mainland access is cut off by towering limestone cliffs. This gives it the feeling of being on a secret island!
Krabi’s premier resort is the hidden Rayavadee set in the Krabi Marine National Park. The Rayavadee caters for smaller weddings and holds ceremonies in a candle-lit limestone cave with an ocean backdrop. It is a dream venue for any wedding photographer as there are so many photo opportunities here for a Krabi wedding.
Having had the privilege of photographing numerous occasions here, I can confidently say that not only will you receive stunning wedding photos, but you will also be amazed by the exceptional wedding team that ensures a seamless and memorable day.

Phulay Bay Ritz Carlton Krabi

Back on the ‘mainland’ the breathtaking setting of Phulay Bay awaits you. The stunning hotel where The Hangover Part 2 movie filmed its wedding scene is the Phulay Bay Ritz Carlton in Krabi, situated on the picturesque Tubkaek Beach close to the town of Ao Nang in Krabi.
The beautiful and luxurious Phulay Bay is a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi, Thailand. It is the perfect setting for a stunning wedding. The resort is located on a secluded stretch of beach surrounded by lush tropical foliage and towering limestone cliffs. This creates a breathtaking backdrop for any Krabi wedding ceremony.
When I photographed there the bride and groom made use of the best of Thailand’s entertainment for their Krabi Wedding. With a baby elephant, a fire show & a ladyboy cabaret. A ladyboy even tried to steal the wedding show; dressing up as the bride, she walked down the aisle to trick the groom!

Pimalai Resort & Spa Koh Lanta

On Koh Lanta, the number one choice is the 5-star Pimalai Resort & Spa which is located in the lush Ba Kan Tiang bay on the southwest coast of Koh Lanta.
Your Krabi wedding ceremony can take place on sandy beaches, surrounded by the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore. Or in the lush tropical gardens, providing a stunning backdrop for your photos.
I’ve loved photographing here many times and I usually end up with the wedding guests at the end of Kantiang Bay, in Why Not Bar until the early hours of the morning!

Zeavola Koh Phi Phi

Located on the serene white sands of Laem Tong Beach, Zeavola is the premier destination on Koh Phi Phi Island. This luxurious resort exudes an air of rustic romance, perfect for a tranquil getaway.
I had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful wedding at this stunning resort. Upon arriving on the island, the breathtaking scenery and turquoise-blue waters that surrounded me left me in awe. Their Krabi wedding ceremony and reception both took place on the beach which has to be one of the finest in Thailand!

SAii Phi Phi Island Village Beach Resort

This is a huge resort and SAii Phi Phi Island Village has a very long beach. The best thing about this is even when the resort is busy its easy to find a secluded corner for a Krabi wedding ceremony and a photoshoot after.
I photographed an intimate elopement here and it felt like we had the place to ourselves!
