When it comes to beach weddings, heels are most definitely overrated. Whether you chose to wear sandals or go barefoot, it’s the one place where formal wear will look out of place; so kick off your shoes, feel the sand between your toes and forget you ever voluntarily wore high heels!
Check out our alternatives so that your tootsies look wedding ready and as pretty as a picture.

There’s nothing quite like cozying up to your OH on the sofa with your subtle ‘warm light’ lamps on, to create the perfect mood for a romantic night in. Whether you’re watching a movie, or just catching up on the day’s events, nobody wants to feel like they have (quite literally), a spot light on them. It’s no big secret – bad lighting can totally kill the moment.
The same goes for weddings – it’s frequently an overlooked element and often not seen on planning checklists, but it’s vital to think about how to set the mood and tone of your reception so that everybody feels relaxed and comfortable.
Have a look at our magical lighting setups at our styled photo shoot at POP Villas, Koh Tao.
Cоngrаtulаtіоnѕ on your engagement! You’re going to be busy over the coming months, and by now you may have started stockpiling bridal magazines, have your wedding Pinterest board set up, downloaded several wedding apps, spent your lunchtimes glued to your phone researching pretty much ANYTHING wedding related and already discussed details of your dream wedding with your best friends over a glass of wine (or two)...several times!
It’s so easy to get carried away, without really even knowing where to start…especially in the initial stages of planning. So take a breath, grab yourself a cuppa or a glass of wine (we won’t judge!) and check out our Top 10 tips to guide уоu thrоugh the рlаnnіng рrосеѕѕ so that it becomes a breeze!
The very first task is to share your exciting news with the world! But before you update your status on Facebook, or select the perfect ‘ring’ photo for Instagram, your parents and immediate family should be the first to learn of your engagement. If you’re not able to tell them in person, schedule phone calls so that they all hear about it on the same day. Once the VIPs have been told, then you can go about sharing the happy news with friends and colleagues.
Take a look BEHIND THE SCENES at our styled photo shoot at POP Villas featuring just some of our brand new event lighting equipment which is now available for our Lovestruck couples.
As we are lucky enough to enjoy so many days of sunshine in Thailand, couples usually always opt to hold their wedding reception outdoors, whether on the beach, on the terrace of a luxury villa or on the grounds of a resort. And as dusk falls during cocktail hour, our magnificent sunsets will captivate you while the lighting starts to do its job and create a dreamy atmosphere for your evening reception.
Today, the boys were very busy all day rigging the lighting in preparation for our evening shoot which transformed the roof terrace into a romantic, magical space, creating the perfect mood for any wedding, proposal or special event.
Special thanks to POP Villas for allowing us to store over 15 boxes of lighting equipment whilst set up and rigged our styled shoot on their amazing roof top ocean view villa.
You won’t have to wait long! We’ll be sharing our evening photos with you very soon!
We love these glass lanterns, suspended from different heights for a simple, non-fussy feel with views of the bay.

Nikki and Jeff were seeking an extremely private beach wedding which was off the beaten track; somewhere tropical and far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, they had already asked several friends about various places in Thailand, and Koh Tao kept on popping up time and time again as the ‘must see’ island. They were originally looking to marry on Koh Samui, but after doing further research, they discovered that Koh Tao is that just that bit more remote, offering them the rustic charm, white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters and that real ‘tropical feel’ that they were looking for. Not only that, but as avid adventurers, hikers and scuba divers, Koh Tao offered everything they could possibly want in a destination wedding.
Set in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Tao offers the perfect setting as a wedding destination with a great choice of luxury villas and resorts, gorgeous beaches, stunning viewpoints, perfect sunsets and an array of activities to keep you and all your guests busy throughout your stay.
We’ve covered daytime activities in our previous blog– now let’s look at what there is to do once the sun goes down!
