Kathy and Richard

The pleasure of taking part of this special day was this was the stories that Kathy and Richard shared with me which we integrated into the vows that we chose for the ceremony.

The weather did not live up to it's threat of rain so we did not break out the umbrellas but shared a very special day with each other - and the guests on the beach who gave Kathy and Richard a round of applause as the walked to the jetty.

A dinner was shared at Panwa House as the evening drew in - smiles and chocolates were shared... and a gift of a cornflakes packet was opened?...

Congratulations Kathy and Richard

Deep and Rekha

A lovely couple who escaped to Paradise to share their dreams with each other.

They spent time wandering around the gardens, the jetty and the Panwa House.

Thoughts were shared and questions asked - the attitude of a couple who are ready to share their lives with someone they love.

Congratulations to Rekha and Deep.

Shelly and Huw - Dreams do come True

What was I saying?
Where do I start to explain Shelly and Huw’s wedding?

The best way would be at the beginning when I met them and heard all about the details that they were going to have in their wedding – what fun and their guests did not know half of it!

Their guests told to be ready on the beach at the specific time – and they were – and they waited… 

Huw and the boys turned up on a Long-Tailed fishing boat (with a beer each) – much to the hilarity of their guests – which became more amusing when they did not know what would happen if one of the boys fell out of the boat!!!

(Un?)Fortunately nobody did fall out and the boys arrived safely after cruising around for 10 minutes in the sea.

Out of the corner of my eye I could see that Shelly and the girls were almost ready – they witnessed Huw’s arrival...

The doors of Panwa House were opened and Shelly and her entourage of girls, Dad and a baby escorted her to the wedding.

The words of the blessing and how Shelly met Huw was one of the highlights for me.

The guests all laughed and cried – champagne was poured and wishes were exchanged.  A feast was then served under the coconut trees and more wishes and blessings were exchanged.

Dreams do come true.

Congratulations Shelly and Huw.

Emma and Ian

What a wonderful group of people.

The devotion and love that one could feel amongst them was heart rendering - then you talked to Ian and the love from him to Emma was not quantifiable. It was a pleasure to be with them.

Amidst the rain and the worry that was there did not detract from their special day.  Emma and Ian shined - they did not need the sun.

When I asked their friends to put down their umbrellas at the beginning of the ceremony - they all did and the rain stopped - lovely. Okay mum had a little paddle with me but it was all in good spirit. 

There was Thai dancing along the beach with the bride, a ceremony in the sand, an elephant which met them both and then dinner at Panwa House.

Congratulations Emma and Ian

Paul and Ann

What a very real pleasure.  Paul and Ann had visited us previously and had chosen to visit us to celebrate their wedding in the UK.

With Paul and Ann was their daughter Jo and her partner James.

Paul and Ann had a very special day - they started it with a visit to Big Buddah where they purchased some tiles to cover the walls and then they visited Wat Chalong.
How tall is this?
In the afternoon was the special event.  The monks waited for Paul to arrive and Ann waited for Paul to find her - he did - eventually. They had a blessing from the monks - visited the beach and Panwa House and had dinner at Top of the Reef.

They had a break and then Paul introduced me to Geo-Caching - Paul and Ann had a fun time searching for their bits - a wonderful idea.

Then came the trip to the Vegetarian Festival! It was raining and Paul and Ann decided to give it a miss - but Jo and James visited it!

Congratulations Paul and Ann.

More photos are coming but I have a great number of wedding photos and Vegetarian Festival photos to sort through - sorry - watch this space.
