Jamie & Natasha | Rayavadee Rai Lei Beach Krabi

Rayavadee Railay Beach Krabi

Jamie & Natasha’s stunning wedding at Rayavadee on Railay Beach Krabi in Thailand
Rai Leh Beach is one of the most beautiful locations in South East Asia. Although actually a peninsula and part of mainland Krabi it is only accessible by boat and has the feeling of being an island. I couldn’t wait to get there and catch up with Jamie & Natasha who had invited me to photograph their wedding at the stunning Rayavadee.
The Rayavadee Krabi wedding venue was absolutely stunning. From the moment I arrived via a longtail boat, every detail was meticulously taken care of. The incredible local staff went above and beyond to ensure a remarkable experience. As I stepped onto the beach, I was greeted by a breathtaking sight: limestone cliffs, swaying palm trees, and pristine white sand, creating a truly unique and tranquil setting for the wedding ceremony.

Koh Gai

On the day prior to their wedding at Rayavadee, we took motorboats from Rai Lei East to Kho Gai, which is also known as Chicken Island. Kho Gai is a popular spot for snorkeling, swimming, and exploring the limestone cliffs that rise up from the ocean and give it its name.
After exploring Kho Gai, we continued to a beautiful deserted beach where we had a spectacular sunset picnic. The beach was totally secluded, a serene and intimate setting for the wedding party to enjoy their pre-wedding celebrations.

Monks Blessing

The next morning, on the day of the wedding, Jamie, Natasha, and their guests gathered with the monks where they performed a blessing ceremony.
The blessing ceremony performed by the monks is an important ritual in Thai culture, where it is customary to seek blessings from Buddhist monks before significant life events, such as weddings. The ceremony involved chanting, prayers, and the sprinkling of holy water, all aimed at invoking blessings for the couple and their future together.
It was a deeply meaningful and spiritual experience for the couple and their guests, adding an element of cultural significance and tradition to their wedding day.

The Grotto

The wedding ceremony took place in the enchanting setting of Rayavadee’s “The Grotto”, surrounded by the natural beauty of the cave’s unique rock formations.
Following the ceremony, we walked down to Phra Nang Beach for a photoshoot. Phra Nang Beach is a stunning location, with crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, and surrounded by lush greenery, making it a perfect backdrop for wedding photos!
The wedding party then enjoyed a seaside meal at The Umbrella Tree Court. It’s an open-air beachside restaurant, featuring a large umbrella tree, providing shade and shelter from the sun, while still allowing guests to enjoy the stunning views of the ocean. And finally, it was back to The Grotto where the wedding partied the night away under the stars!

Farewell Rayavadee

Jamie and Natasha’s wedding at the Rayavadee in Krabi was an incredible experience, filled with love, joy, and beauty. It’s a memory that is sure to stay with them, their family, and their friends forever.
