About My Thai Wedding
My Thai Wedding is North Thailand’s premier pre-wedding and wedding planning service.
In the last few years Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai have enjoyed enormous investment in the hospitality industry and are rich in natural beauty of rainforest and mountains teamed with world class resorts, incredible spas, the excitement of elephants and tigers as well as wonderful waterfalls, rivers, exciting zip-lines through the jungle canopy and even hot air balloon rides.
My Thai Wedding provide a one stop solution for those looking for an out-of-this-world wedding or pre-wedding service with world class photography and videography by international personal and event planning by our team of Thai event specialists who have deep roots in the Lanna Kingdom.
Our service goes much deeper than just your special day and we can help you plan your entire stay from accommodation to an excellent selection of recommended tours.
“To start with, My Thai Wedding will concentrate on the North of Thailand, especially Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. In the future we will be expanding the business to cover the South of Thailand and the islands but always keeping our core values of exceptional photography, videography and wedding planning to the fore”.
James de la Cloche is a highly experienced photographer and the man behind My Thai Wedding.
James de la Cloche, a British Chiang Mai wedding photographer with 25 years experience, started My Thai Wedding after he moved to Chiang Mai and quickly realised that although there are many “Wedding Studios” providing outfits, the photography element of their business was very much secondary as well as the fact that very few Thai wedding photographers in Chiang Mai speak much English.
After booking several pre-wedding shoots with Chinese couples who found him through the internet, he then met his first Chinese business partner, a client who loved his photos and work ethic and who is an expert in the Chinese market and who now heads the Chinese side of the business from her base in Shanghai.
James has a long association with North Thailand and has seen how it has changed from a very sleepy part of the world to an absolutely top tourist destination for those who love scenery and nature as well as the charming, soft nature of the Lanna people. It is only really in the last few years that the tourist industry infrastructure has reached international standards and this, coupled with an immense interest from the Chinese people spurred by the famous (in China) “Lost in Thailand” movie that heavily featured Chiang Mai, led him to create My Thai Wedding.
Born on the tiny island of Jersey, Channel Islands, James is now a full time resident of Chiang Mai and is extremely well connected.
