Here are the best Cities & locations:

where to have your destination wedding in Thailand

• CHIANG MAI

Encircled by mountains and being a beacon of history and culture, this city in the northern part of Thailand has drawn couples to tie the knot with its splendor. There are a plethora of gorgeous temples that add to the scenery and many venues that offer incredible versatility. From luxurious hotels to rustic forest escapes, the mountainous landscapes will adorn any place you choose with an ethereal backdrop for your destination wedding in Thailand. There are so many things to sightsee and explore that your guests will never be able to thank you enough for showing them this slice of paradise. If you are hosting an intimate affair, the venues Anantara Chiang Mai Resort and Panviman Chiang Mai are some of the places you ought to consider because of their unique beauty and their all-inclusive wedding packages. Furthermore, the Kaomai Lanna Resort, Shangri-La, and the Four Seasons in Chiang Mai are the venues that I would definitely recommend for getting married in Thailand!

• BANGKOK

Welcome to oriental heaven! Urban street life, historical magnificence, and hidden venue gems like nowhere else. The center of Thailand has so much to offer for loving couples in terms of wedding theme, location, and amenities. Imagine saying “I do” in a dreamy venue on the Chao Phraya River, or having the party of your life in some of the contemporary places entwined with Thai charm! Whatever you can imagine, Bangkok can soak it in and transform it into the ultimate fairytale wedding. Because it is quite a large city, I would advise working with a wedding planner to navigate more easily. To revel in the riverfront views and celebrate with glamour, book the hotel Capella Bangkok. Another place to consider is the Botanical House which oozes with a sense of whimsy and unparalleled luxury, making you feel like the outside has been brought in. If you are seeking authenticity, then the Apothecary Venue will do your wedding vision justice. This is one of the most cinematic destination for an amazing wedding film in Greece.

• KOH SAMUI

As a destination wedding videographer in Thailand, I adore filming beach sceneries, and Koh Samui has many of the most breathtaking ones! A true embodiment of island life. It is a haven for romantic souls and features a great number of wedding venues that can fulfill any of your preferences. Boutique resorts like Sandalwood Luxury Villas and Zazen Boutique Resort & Spa will not only prove to be incredible for your wedding but for your relaxation as well! Your destination wedding in Thailand will also be a mini honeymoon and an otherworldly experience for your guests. There are also many eco-green venues, for example, the Six Senses Samui and Tongsai Bay; but also so many unique places like Shiva Samui and the Jungle Club.

• KOH PHI PHI

Phi Phi is a group of islands that have that archetypal image of Thailand sealed in everyone’s memory. What I can guarantee is that here you can experience the most sublime sunsets which add to the cinematic portrayal of your special day. Many beaches, lush nature, and countless resorts and villas - and the best part? It is not so crowded as in Phuket, providing you with the long-needed serenity and privacy when it comes to getting married in Thailand. Venues to consider are SAii Phi Phi Island Village, Phi Phi The Beach Resort, and the Zeavola Resort.

• PAI

A rustic gem in the north of the country, nestled high in the mountains. From waterfalls and river gorges to hot springs and spiritual sanctuaries that will soothe your whole being. It is the perfect place to plan a destination wedding in Thailand if you also want to give yourself and your guests an escape from their everyday lives. Sometimes the misty clouds are lowered in the valley and the scenery is quite magical. Imagine being surrounded by forests in eco-friendly elegant venues which have such views! Food for the soul and a secluded haven to tie the knot! My recommendations for a wedding in nature: 180 Sanctuary @ Puripai Villa, House of Love, Belle Villa Resort & the Pai Vimaan Resort.

HIRING A DESTINATION WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER IN THAILAND

The main reason why I became a destination wedding videographer in Thailand is because of the beauty of these lands, the incredible landscapes, and the views that embellish my cinematic videos. Quite honestly, filming weddings in this oasis is an experience that cannot be lived anywhere else. Booking a destination videographer instead of a local will give an artful touch to your visual heirloom. Locals are used to seeing this unique beauty all the time, while a professional would relish in every detail presented, masterfully including it in your love story.

Wedding Styles according to location

MOUNTAIN WEDDINGS

In the northern part of Thailand, you can immerse yourself in a spiritual yet luxurious nuptial experience. The city Chiang Mai will be an ideal host for couples who seek to explore many features of these lands – the mountainous landscape, the history, the urban chic, and the serene escapes that can serve to be your ceremony spots.

 

COASTAL & ISLAND WEDDINGS

The ultimate beach and island destination land! Getting married in Thailand often means choosing a relaxing resort on the beach and throwing your guests an exquisite party with the most delicious cocktails. I would always recommend avoiding Phuket since it is overcrowded, however there are several islands & beaches to consider besides Koh Samui and Koh Phi Phi: Krabi, Ko Pha Ngan, and Pattaya City beaches.

 

 

WEDDINGS IN NATURE

The city Pai is fastly becoming a popular destination for wild romantic souls who want to wish to tie the knot somewhere more intimate. The unrivaled nature and views from this location will adorn your wedding most wonderfully. However, there are some urban spots that channel the grandeur of nature even if situated in Bangkok! An incredible venue to book if you want a mix of nature and urban is the Rathkaew Authentic Thai Restaurant.

 

CITY AND URBAN WEDDINGS

Bangkok will always be my number one choice for having a taste of the urban charm and street life of Thailand. For the urban lovers, consider booking your celebration in the Hotel Once or in the Compass Sky View – which has exquisite city views that are just perfect for wedding videography!

 

Tips & Advantages for a destination wedding in Thailand

for US & UK citizens

LEGALITIES

Even though no one is fond of legalities, they are a necessity for getting married in Thailand. For your wedding ceremony to be legal, it first needs to be validated under Thai law. Therefore, it needs to be registered with the Registrar at an Amphur Office – or more commonly known District Office. Of course, all the documents need to be translated but I would definitely recommend a wedding planner or on-site wedding coordinator who can help you with any legalities. The other option is to get legally married in your own country or state, and then have a wedding reception in Thailand with a symbolic ceremony.

 

AMENITIES

I must highlight the fact that this is going to be a long-flight wedding, thus accommodations and organized transport will be needed for your guests – especially for islands or mountainous areas. When booking your destination wedding in Thailand, I would also advise organizing refreshments and meals for when you arrive after such a long trip.

In order to have the best possible weather, host your celebration anywhere from November to May.

 

 

Thailand is a country that never runs out of things to do or sites to see. Even laying on some beach for a whole day will prove to be a highlight. However, there are many sightseeing tours too – exotic nature tours, adventurous or even shopping tours depending on your location. Thailand features a plethora of historical places like gorgeous temples which are open for visitors and relaxing spa resorts that can do wonders pre or post-wedding.
