TO ANYONE CONSIDERING GETTING MARRIED ON KOH SAMUI:
After we had decided on the location of our Wedding/Honeymoon in Thailand, we then approached a travel agent to book our holiday. We discussed wedding/honeymoon options and waited for the agent to call us back with some ideas.
Two weeks had passed with no response or any details of wedding packages or celebrants available in Thailand. I decided that I would take matters into my own hands and organize a celebrant myself, how hard could it be. So I used GOOGLE and found a planner based on Koh Samui on a website called www.samuibeachweddings.com. I had heard that Koh Samui is a beautiful island so I sent an email detailing what I would like for my wedding. I had a response in a matter of a day from a man named Carter.
They were the best; they contacted us about everything and made us feel comfortable with our choices, offering anything we could come up with. The prices were good as was their expertise in making you feel special and important.
I had regular contact from Samui Beach Weddings over the months leading up to our wedding to discuss all sorts of things. They sent me options of massages and places to eat after the wedding. Photos, hair & makeup were also on offer. All I had to do was choose from a list of options it was all so easy.
We had decided on a simple Western Wedding – just the two of us – really romantic with not a lot of fuss. We chose the VIP Registration and all the paperwork was going to be completed in Bangkok. Carter personally met up with us at our hotel in Bangkok, first thing in the morning, and he took us to the Australian Embassy to start our marriage registration process. Then he took us to get the documentation translated from Thai into English at his trusted Translator’s office, and lastly to the Registrar where we finalized the wedding legalities. Since we used Samui Beach Weddings’ Legal Registration Services, it only took the one morning to complete. We were very happy we decided not to try and register our marriage on our own. Using Samui Beach Weddings’ Legal Services is well worth it.
Our ceremony was to be performed on the beach at Koh Samui, we left the whole days activities up to Samui Beach Weddings to organize. They had emailed us an itinerary of the whole day with times of all of our activities.
We awoke had breakfast then off to our massages for two hours. I then had some lovely Thai girls come to my room so my makeup and hair could be done. Not long after this we were transported to a private beach where the ceremony was to take place. All transport was arranged by Samui Beach Weddings. After the wedding we were transported to our restaurant which was only a short stroll down the beach from our hotel – perfect ending to a lovely day, it was a hot balmy night and the setting was so romantic. An added extra was the Thai dancers the restaurant had put on for entertainment which was a surprise. The setting was outside in little bamboo huts with cushions provided for a comfortable place to eat and just kick back.
The day was fun and exactly what we wanted, and Carter was on hand to provide us with anything we needed, like Mai Tai’s from the bar. All of the people involved were fantastic. We appreciate all the fuss they had made over us to make our day so special and the memories will last forever and so will the friendships made that day. Thanks for giving us exactly what we had asked for. I would recommend Carter and Samui Beach Weddings to anyone if you would like a beautiful romantic wedding day with all the trimmings.
