Crystal and Ernest’s Destination Wedding at Naman Retreat, Danang

This week Aaron and I photographed a destination Wedding at the beautiful Naman Retreat in Danang.
Congratulations to the couple Crystal and Ernest as well as the staff at the Resort to make this a stunning a beach wedding.
Despite strong gusts of wind, it was a moving ceremony and just in time for the most beautiful light of the day. I always like to photograph Chinese wedding ceremonies as with door games, tea ceremony and so on. There is always a lot of stuff happening.
       
Photographer’s Tip
If you are getting married here, you can actually sneak on the roof of one of the seaview villas to get a few beautiful portrait shots. They are covered with nice lawn.

At A Glance | Javad and Lynn’s Wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore | Singapore Destination Wedding Photography

AT A GLANCE is a section of our blog by our photographers with a quick summary of a recent destination wedding with some of their favorite pictures along with a insider’s tip for couples and photographers about the venue. 

My New Years this year was very different to usual as I teamed up with Christian Berg to photograph an incredible wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore.  The couple Javad & Lynn were so much fun, they stayed in the Bridal Suite and the bridesmaids put on some hilarious games in the morning that were great to photograph.

It was a two-day wedding with a traditional Persian ceremony in the Katong Ballroom followed by a lunch in the Tower Ballroom on New Years Eve.

Everyone then came back on New Years Day for a Chinese tea ceremony in the Island Ballroom Foyer followed by a dinner in the Island Ballroom. At 10pmthings got a little wild as the after party continued well into the early hours.

Congratulations to the couple Javad and Lynn as well as thanks to the whole staff at Shangri-La for putting on a spectacular wedding.

Photographer’s Insider Tip (For Couples and Photographers)

If you are getting married there, make sure to do your portraits in the garden and the incredible paintings in the ballrooms also work as a great background.
