South Yorkshire Wedding Photographer Andy Hook Photography is in big trouble with my husband.  After seeing the gorgeous images from Laura and Rufus’ Thai celebrations I have upped the ante on the “I need a holiday” nagging.  Not sure he’s getting the message though.  If you are planning a destination bash or if you just fancy a bit of Monday morning escapism, prepare to be inspired…

Laura tells us: Rufus and I got engaged in Sri Lanka in April 2010, and we married on 29 January 2011 in a beautiful villa on a private beach in Phuket, Thailand.

We wanted an exotic location where friends and family could come together to celebrate our big day as well as holiday with us.

I chose an Ivory silk full length dress with bubble skirt and sweetheart neckline. I bought it in a dress shop in Hong Kong.  My bridesmaids wore gorgeous purple dresses from LK Bennett and I carried vibrant purple orchids to match.

Andy Hook was our photographer, and he did an awesome job, as these beautiful photographs show.

To add a personal touch, we placed name cards at each place in silver fortune cookie holders and on the back of each name card we wrote a special “fortune” for each guest which was tailored to that person.

My top tip for other Brides Up North is to chill out and don’t let the little things stress you on the day. Have fun and dance!

    Gorgeous purple shoes! And a sensible height. Where did you get them? And the bridesmaids dresses are just the same shade – where are they from?
    Congratulations!
    Jennie
