Yan Yan & Matt

Yan Yan and Matt chose to have their wedding at Castaways Resort, and they picked the perfect day too. Their big day started with them reading a letter from each other in their separate units. Following this, the mood went from an emotional one to a more exciting one, with Matt and the boys being put through a series of challenges (bridal games) designed by the bridal party. Through team work, the boys successfully crossed all the hurdles presented to them and Matt got to see Yan Yan for the first time in her beautiful traditional outfit!

After the tea ceremony and a change of outfits, we had some time to do a ‘first look’ before some of the guests arrived. Then it was time for the ceremony to begin.

Later in the day, we were treated to a stunning sunset and we definitely made full use of it. Totally worth sneaking off from the reception for! The wonderful day was capped off with a sparkler exit for the bride and groom.
