Held on a stunning rooftop in Bangkok, this modern celebration took an unique approach to the traditional Thai wedding. With the help of The Wedding Bliss Thailand, the couple infused their personal, minimalist aesthetic into all aspects of the wedding ceremony, from the customary Khan Mak procession to the water blessing. Darinimages expertly photographed every stylish detail – including the bride's jaw-dropping, architectural gown. This gallery is one that cannot be missed!

From The Wedding Bliss Thailand... Elegance is always in style. There might changes in fashion, color trends, or innovative ideas, but elegance is truly timeless, making our hearts beat faster and our eyes smile. This especially applies to a wedding. It’s easy to lose your voice in the overflow of inspiration we often find nowadays: Pinterest, Instagram, and more! The questions you should always ask yourself are these: "What resonates most with me? What is my passion in life? Who are we as a couple?"

Pim and Name live in Bangkok, and it is traditional for Thai people to have a large Thai engagement and wedding blessing ceremony. Normally this includes many traditions – the Khan Mak procession symbolizing engagement, retrieving the bride, asking permission from parents and their blessing, a ring exchange, and a water blessing ceremony. Like everyone else in Thailand, Pim and Name highly respect these traditions, yet they wanted to make sure that their wedding day was a stylish and modern reflection of their personal aesthetic – minimal and elegant.

The choice of venue was not hard; Bangkok is a city of rooftops, and Hotel Once's made a beautiful setting for the ceremony. The design of the hotel set the tone for the overall monochromatic look of the wedding. We added gold and smoky pink accents through the lighting and design details. We absolutely loved everything about this wedding, from the couple’s perfect sense of style to their amazing guests!

From Darinimages... I loved absolutely everything about Pim and Name's wedding. From the moment Name contacted us to capture his surprise proposal on the island until the very last beat on the dance floor on the wedding night, there was so much love and warmth around! I laughed until I cried and then laughed again at the party. I felt privileged to capture their special day and enjoyed every minute being there.
