The bond of love between PaulDominique Vacharasinthu and top model Sonia Couling was strengthened, after seeing each other for over two years, when the couple tied the knot recently.
The ceremony was held in the groom’s hometown of Ajaccio on the French island of Corsica, with over 100 distinguished guests witnessing the romantic moment — Pichai Chirathivat, Chumnan Pakdisook, ML Kalyakorn Kasemsri, Byron and Cindy Bishop, Kamron Pramoj na Ayutthaya and supermodel Methinee Kingpayom, who flew there from Bangkok to join the event.
The couple exchanged vows on September 8 at the Ajaccio Church, which is one of the most historic chapels in Corsica. The couple chose this place to say ‘‘I do’’ because both of them hold special memories of the church.
Walking the bride down the aisle was Sonia’s father, Peter Couling. Sonia looked radiant in her white wedding gown designed by Somchai ‘‘Kai’’ Kaewthong. After the ceremony and exchange of wedding rings, the bride burst into tears of joy, overwhelmed by the feeling of happiness.
A thank-you ‘‘White Party’’ followed at Villa Casanova, which overlooks the sea, where the couple thanked all their guests.
A subsequent reception was held in Thailand on September 18 at the Nai Lert Park Hotel, which was presided over by MR Thepkamol and Khunying Kwanta Devakul.
