You’ve said ‘Yes!’ to the big question but now comes one of the little questions. Where do you go for your pre-wedding photo shoot? You do know that capturing your love in those heady days before the wedding requires a beautiful confluence of many factors – attire, theme and location location location!
If you’re looking for a sure shot in terms of aesthetics though, pack your bags and get on the next flight to the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort. With its myriad moods and kaleidoscope of backdrops, you’ll find everything you dreamt of and more.
The stunning 22-acre beachfront hotel in Koh Samui overlooks azure seas and private white sand beaches. An exclusive sanctuary of 79 rooms, suites, and villas, the property offers numerous distinctive settings ranging from lush tropical gardens to chic dining outlets each of which is sure to elevate the exquisiteness of your pictures.
There are a few themes that you could explore while here.
Say “Ahoy Matey!” and get onto the hotel’s speedboat for a marine-themed photo session. As your love-boat cruises the open waters, be sure to pop a bottle of champagne and clink your flutes, catching those golden bubbles in the photos that celebrate your love. Want to add a little adventure to the luxury? Well, you could go kayaking and let your sporty side shine too.
Some couples love food as much as they love each other and for them, a culinary-themed shoot will be to their taste. Maybe you’d like to be photographed taking a master class by an expert chef at the hotel as you learn to whip up authentic Thai cuisine. Or you could have a photographer around as you indulge in the unbelievable view while savoring light refreshments at Serene Lounge by Club InterContinental.
A lavish, relaxing scene is rendered sublime when it comes with the exclusivity of ultimate privacy. And yes, a little hideaway is the perfect way to up the romance. If lounging by your sweetheart’s side is your idea of an ideal escape, make the most of the hotel’s sumptuous suites and villas. Let your photographs tattle tale about how you enjoy a candid conversation or just each other’s company soaking in the tropical vibe, relaxing on your private deck.
Can’t get enough of the sun setting? Well, head to the Air Bar perched high above the Gulf of Thailand with amazing views of the ocean and Five Islands. This incredible sunset location has been featured in The New York Times bestseller, ‘One of 1000 Places to Visit in your Lifetime’. As the sun hits the horizon and paints the sky in fiery hues, the chic surroundings will elevate the mood and guarantee some of your favorite couple portraits.
Ripple of Romance
There’s something about candlelight. The hotel would love it if you chose the classic low light sensuality of a seaside pop-up restaurant under the stars in Taling Ngam Bay. They’ll set up a tiki bamboo tent, string up some fairy lights and let the gentle sea breeze and night sky work its magic on their exclusive beach as you smile shyly for the camera.
Waves and Waters
Water babies can walk hand in hand by the beach as the waves lap at their feet and fill the frames with natural beauty. For those who want to take their love for water deeper, take a dip in either the private pool in their suite or villa or dive into any of the seven exclusive pools at the property. Designed to offer an exceptional experience each one of them is truly unique.
