Firstly, absolutely loving your sunny wedding! Looks beautiful!
Thailand is amazing! We got engaged there a year ago and he proposed in Phuket at a place called Kamala Beach. Was stunning! Rooftop restaurant with a unfettered sea view.. we went to lots of places but PhiPhi islands were stunning and really relaxing! Bangkok is amazing too, I'll find out the hotel we stayed in and come back to you. You must see Thailand :) x
So i know this thread has been a bit slow lately, and that's not likely to change any time soon! I have, however, bowed to peer pressure and booked a videographer. We had originally decided to save money here and not have one, but whenever i told anyone this they would insist i would regret it! I researched a few on the bottom of the price scale and they were so over the top cheesy. There was one company that for every single film they did, they would have the bride look wistfully out of the window of her getting ready room, and then in the direction of the brides gaze they would superimpose the groom getting ready. It honestly made my toes curl.
Eventually, i asked around for recommendations and decided on Lovebug Films (sounds a bit top shelf that now i come to think of it!)
They filmed one of my friends weddings and the final footage is really well edited and not at all cheesy. They also agreed to do the full package for £1200 instead of their quoted £1500, so i can still tell myself i've saved money. That's how I work anyway!
Also, I took advantage of yesterdays sun and went for a drink on the terrace of our reception venue. It was an impromptu visit with my cousin and bridesmaid 'D' as we were in town for D's birthday. We had a bottle of prosecco in the sun with clear blue skies overlooking Liverpool's most famous building and the River Mersey. Ahhhh
Thankyou Organised Bride! That is very helpful! if you could've only stayed in 2 places, what ones would you choose? And is it possible to do day trips to any of the others without actually staying there?
Hey! Sorry, I'm just seeing this!! I'd stay in Phuket and Samui. You can definitely do day trips (depending on your timing) between Phuket and Krabi/ the Phi Phi islands and from Samui, you could get around to places like Ko Pha Ngan. Unfortunately, we didn't get to explore the north, so can't comment on that.
