Koh Samui ~ A wedding day dream

Published on July 9, 2017 by Richard Vaughton

Koh Samui has to be one of the top destinations for a warm wedding, a great place to experience and don’t forget re-visiting for those anniversaries.

Why get married in Koh Samui

First and foremost, the chances of rain sleet and snow are almost zero! You do of course need to choose the right part of the year, but compare that to and English spring or summer planned wedding! You just never know.

Secondly its so memorable, for you your family and your friends. Many people complain that their friends cannot afford it and this is quite understandable, but it is Your Day”, not theirs. Plan in advance and set up a regime whereby everybody can plan for a holiday and the big day!

Meet The Author
I have a passion for visual arts and been refining my photographic skills since 1973. After a few years, I also entered the world of cinematography. MY passion for music can be traced back to 1968 when I began studying guitar in Spain with the legendary gypsy flamenco guitar virtuoso Diego del Gastor. I have also produced and directed many music documentaries featuring such diverse artists as Ravi Shankar, Jackson Browne, Kenny Loggins, and Lionel Richie. In 1986, I directed, shot and edited the HBO special documenting Lionel Richie’s “Dancing On The Ceiling”. In 1994 I was Director of Photography, co-produced and edited an intimate portrayal of life on the road in the Disney documentary, “Jackson Browne: Going Home” which won the cable ACE Award for “Best Music Special of the Year”. I have broad-ranging interests and am on a continual journey of discovery, artistic endeavors, and creative adventures.
