Sayaka and Martin have lived in Australia for over ten years now. Five years ago they met in Sydney through some mutual acquaintances and they have been in love ever since. They got engaged last year and got in touch with A FairyTao Wedding in January this year.
Martin travelled to Thailand a few times, but neither of them had visited Koh Tao in the past. Visualizing this special day, they were looking for something simple and very intimate. Through a casual conversation, one of their Thai friends in Sydney highly recommended Koh Tao, a place that is hardly known as a wedding destination (and we actually hope it stays that way).
Two weeks after our email communication, we met them both via Skype and learned so much more about them. Saya (we love calling her by this nickname now!) is originally from Japan while Martin is from the Czech Republic. They are a very laid back and easy going couple. Being decisive about what their dream wedding would be, they simply asked for a wedding dress, a stylist for bridal hair and makeup, a great photographer, and a nice dinner on the wedding day, and of course, a secluded and personal vow and ring exchange ceremony as man and wife.
For this wedding holiday, Saya and Martin’s travel plan has included Koh Tao, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Hanoi, Hue, Hoi An, and lastly a trip back to Saya’s hometown in Japan. A FairyTao Wedding has great relationships working closely with many Koh Tao resorts. We arranged these two amazing villas for Saya and Martin’s week long holiday on Koh Tao. We are pleased to know that they loved these two choices we selected for them.
Haad Tien Beach Resort is one of the most luxurious beach resort on the island. And Castaway Villa is Haad Tien’s interpretation of the perfect seaside villa. Stunning sea views and located within closest proximity to the Shark Bay beach. During our pre-wedding meeting, Saya was absolutely stunned when she realized her wedding ceremony would be just a few footsteps away from their beach front private villa.
Sand between the toes, under the palm trees, Sayaka and Martin exchanged their marriage vows and promises to each other. They celebrated a very memorable day in this paradise, where they just newly discovered. We are pleased to pronounce Sayaka and Martin as husband and wife on Koh Tao. We wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
