If you are thinking about getting married in Thailand then this Phuket Destination Wedding Guide is a great place to start!
The destination wedding expert Jeanette of Luxury Events Phuket has kindly helped to write this guide to getting married in Phuket. It has all of the inspiration and information you need to start planning your big day on the picture-perfect island of Phuket.
Situated just off Thailand’s south west coast, the 540km-square-island of Phuket is one of the jewels in Thailand’s tourist crown. This tropical paradise has rapidly increased up the popularity charts when it comes to holiday and honeymoon locations and of course as a destination wedding locale. You’ll find miles of golden sandy beaches that feature an abundance of luxury and boutique hotels, all graciously offering the world-famous Thailand hospitality.

Of all the beautiful sandy shores there are in the world upon which to tie the knot, the destination ceremonies in Thailand always look like pure wedded bliss.
The gorgeous Gabrielle and Gareth, like many couples, decided to get married abroad as it provided a midway point for their families who are from opposite corners of the globe – South Africa and Australia. The picturesque island of Phuket was their destination, the secluded beach of Kata Noi Bay was to be their dreamy big day setting.
Gabrielle looked every bit the beautiful boho bride with a delicate headdress, floating veil and a chic and unique layered gown. Oh and of course, who could forget her strappy gold Choo’s and matching clutch bag – the ultimate in finishing touches!
As always, today’s flyaway couple added their own personal touch to their destination wedding with brightly coloured sunglasses and fans as favours for their guests and they enchanced their blissful beachfront wedding ceremony with traditional Jewish customs. The wedding party then headed on to the pure white sands to watch with wonder as the sun set over the ocean to a vibrant display of pink, violet and scarlet hues – destination wedding perfection!
