Destination Wedding in Bagan Myanmar

CANDICE + TIM // MYANMAR

There are many things I could tell you about Myanmar. The first time Candice mentioned this place called Bagan to me I did a Google image search and thought “this can’t be right”. There is a place in this world with over 2000 Buddhist temples and pagodas where hot air balloons fly above into the sunrise? Yes, there is. It is also the place where Tim asked Candice to marry him. She said yes and so it happened that now this is the place where Candice married Tim. And one thing I can definitely tell you about Bagan is that it is magical.

It may be possible however that this magicalness was helped a great deal by Candice and Tim. To pull off a destination wedding in Bagan, Myanmar is no easy task. But if anyone could do it, Candice could. Ever since I met these two in Hong Kong earlier in the year I knew it would be ace to hang out with them again. Spending these days in Bagan with them, their families and their friends was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I am so grateful for it all. All of these people were simply fantastic, we were welcomed with open arms and felt like part of the whole group from the first moment. So it’s entirely possible that if you travel to Bagan and there’s no cluster of cousins in the lobby or parents waving from the e-bikes speeding past that it may not feel as magical to you as it did to me. In the end it’s always the people you’re with that make any adventure. And Candice and Tim definitely made Bagan an adventure for me.

I could say a thousand things more about this wedding but this is a fine example of how images can tell a story much better than words. I do want to say thank you to Candice and Tim, to everyone else who came along on this magic ride and massive thank you to my good friend Victor – best second photographer, all around assistant and travel buddy anyone could ask for. I could not have done this without you.

[…] Overlooking ancient monuments, the Aureum Palace Hotel wedding venue sits smack in the middle of Bagan Archaeological Preservation Zone and offers a sweeping view of lush gardens, payas and pagodas, and temples. Bear witness to hot air balloons rising to the skies, and experience the hush that settles at dusk as candles are lit – a striking backdrop for an intimate wedding. For more wedding in Bagan inspiration, check this destination wedding in Bagan story. […]

We just watched the Ed Byrne/Data O’Briain programme where they went to Myanmar and I immediately recognised Bagan from your pictures, so I had to have another look. Still the most stunning think I think I’ve ever seen! X
