One of the most popular, and enduring, trends in the wedding space is travelling to an exotic locale to celebrate your union with your partner with all your loved ones in attendance. It’s a great idea for newlyweds who are looking for that x-factor that makes their nuptials truly unforgettable.
Four Seasons Resorts in Thailand presents three gorgeous venues to make the wedding of your dreams a reality. Whether you want to be in the mountains, say your vows on sandy beaches by aquamarine waters or celebrate in the midst of a lush jungle, you can have it all, and more, at the Four Seasons Resorts Thailand in Koh Samui, to Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai.
“Thailand is among the most-preferred wedding destinations in the world for its accessibility, the innate hospitality of the Thai people, and not least - for its stunning natural beauty,” says Sean Mosher, general manager, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and Tented Camp Golden Triangle. “When you add the Four Seasons unique style and elegance to this, you have a match made in paradise,” adds Jasjit Assi, general manager, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.
The resorts are ideal for boutique weddings with 20 to 120 guests, with buy-out celebrations allowing private access to all venues within the premises. The hotel offers package ideas from each resort for you to peruse as you make plans for your big day.
Island Celebrations at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui
The Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, set amidst pristine beaches and verdant tropical hills rolling down to the sea, is the perfect venue if you want a wedding venue that’s a picture-perfect tropical paradise. “From a bohemian vibe, to a traditional celebration, we have something for everyone,” says Vallapha Srijame, the resort’s Conference Services and Sales Manager.
Whether you’re looking for a bohemian-style beach wedding (Think a sea and sand affair, with warm, earth-toned decorations, and a selection of aisle and arch designs) or a quintessential tropical-paradise wedding (Where couples can exchange vows under a canopy of coconut palms along the resort’s immaculate white-sand beach), there’s something for everyone.
Ideal for intimate celebrations, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui offers a host of fabulous venues that can be customised for a celebration and can accommodate up to 80 guests by the private cove.
Mae Rim Magic at Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai
Thailand’s cultural heartland, Chiang Mai, is a land of gorgeous Buddhist temples and verdant rural landscapes. For those who prefer a more immersive celebration, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai offers picturesque backdrops for a special, out-of-the-ordinary way to say I do. “There’s no need to stand on ceremony here – allow the crisp mountain air, and the serenity of Thailand’s cultural capital to create the magic for you,” says Pimsupang Busapapong, conference services and sales manager.
“Walk through rice paddies holding hands, in a private ceremony with a traditional nine-monk blessing ceremony, led by a village elder,” she suggests. This authentic Thai wedding ritual, complete with wedding garlands and traditional attire, can be conducted at sunrise or sunset, with the mountains as backdrop, for the most dramatic effect. Or you can opt for an evening wedding ceremony which is set in a stunning garden, under a wedding arch of tropical flowers by the pool, as the sun sets across the horizon. “Revel in the hues of gold and green as the sun does its ceremonial dance for this celebration in the countryside,” adds Busapapong.
“We can create a wonderful green celebration, pairing eco-friendly décor with sustainable organic menus in this magical tropical setting,” she shares. The Orchid Nursery is a venue straight out of a storybook. “Live orchid plants in every hue and colour, and tropical ferns and other exotic flora are all the décor you need!” she smiles.
The expansive landscape at Mae Rim allows for celebrations of up to 120 persons.
Milestones and jungle-scapes at Four Seasons Resort Tented Camp Golden Triangle:
If you are looking to truly getaway for your celebration, nothing can be more apt than Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, located deep in the heart of lush bamboo jungles. “Set along a scenic stretch of the restless Ruak River, as it makes its way towards the mighty Mekong, this is a wedding destination for those who embrace adventure”, says Macall Newman, Camp Manager.
An intimate experience, there are several venues tucked away in the jungle for those meaningful exchanges of lasting commitments. “Sunset weddings are a favourite,” smiles Macall. The Camp’s dedicated team of experts can customise the experience for the couple to be a day long affair, starting with a signature breakfast and easing into a romantic couple’s spa session at the tree-fringed open-air spa. “End the night on an auspicious note with the lighting of the beautiful khom loy, traditional wish lanterns that rise up into the night sky in a trail of light!” Macall suggests.
Celebratory events can accommodate up to 20 guests.
Whatever you choose, Four Seasons Resort Thailand’s fabulous service, luxury venues and accommodations and culinary excellence will help make this major milestone into the event of a lifetime.
