Krystal and Daniel are two of the most laid back and relaxed people I’ve met, and I think their wedding day reflected that  part of their personalities perfectly.

I was lucky enough to meet up with them last time I was in Melbourne with Nek in November last year, we all had dinner in the Docklands and laughed a whole lot! So I was so excited to get to spend more time with them on their wedding day!

They chose the Elements Boutique Resort as their wedding venue, and it was so lovely there on the day. The resort is situated in the South-West corner of the island in Phangka, Taling Ngam. It’s such a beautiful, quiet location… one of the coolest places to have a wedding!

Here’s how the day started:

Krystal chose the cutest colourful dresses for her bridesmaids, I love them!

We went out to a sandbar in the sea to get some nice intimate bride and photos.

I don’t know why, but I really love this photo of Krystal. You can tell she’s just taking a moment to let it all sink in + enjoy her day! Totally my kind of bride 🙂

Krystal and Daniel’s laid back wedding + reception totally reflects their personalities. They didn’t have a care in the world throughout the whole day other that for their friends and family to have a good time. They had a chill out area with beanbags on the beach.

Now, this was one of the photos that Daniel wanted and mentioned at our first meeting in Melbourne… we’ve come full circle and made it happen! Krystal and Daniel are perfect for each other + she’s lucky to have such a romantic guy by her side.
