Wedding Of Our Dreams

Nadear and Andres' wedding is one that boasts pure class and extravagance. 

The couple met while working, and developed a relationship that has seen them travel abroad and experience the best of life. It is because of this that their special day is nothing short of exceptional.


A Ceremony of Extravagance 

The couple chose to begin their wedding celebrations with a Thai ceremony that encompassed traditional Thai prayer, music and dress. The  bursts of colour and golden accessories played tribute to Thai culture as the  beat of the Thai drums brought a serene atmosphere to such an important occasion. 


Chakraphat Tradition

Nadear wore a traditional white and silver Thai bridal gown, designed by Vanus Couture

The Chakraphat traditional Thai dress is usually made from Yok cloth, a type of silk that is embossed with a raised flower design.  Often, a bride will also include a Sabai (piece of cloth draped over one shoulder) as part of her gown, which is then decorated with beautiful tinsel and jewels. The dress is further enhanced with a necklace, bracelet, breast chain, and occasionally a Thai belt. This dress is named after "Chakraphat" which means emperor.

Currently, theChakraphat traditional Thai dress is the  inspiration behind many Thai bridal dresses and is extremely popular. It's grace and beauty allows the bride to look both beautiful and elegant at the same time.


A Traditional Thai Celebration

With the beats of a traditional Thai drum, the morning started with Andres and his entourage dancing to pick Nadear up from her location. Both the  bride and groom dressed in elaborate Thai costumes and received blessings upon the stage where they exchanged rings, and officially wed by Thai tradition.
