NOW that the big question has finally been popped, it’s time to move onto the real fun part!
The wedding planning!
For some this could be a dream, others on the other hand, may require the complete assistance of a professional.
So now you’ve chosen your wedding planner, it’s time to plan your wedding! If you’ve ever dreamt of having a destination wedding… (It always sounds like such a dream!)
You should highly consider tying the knot at beautiful Phuket – trust me, we’ve found views and spaces to take your breath away! It’s surprisingly affordable, and there’s a reason why many love having their fuss-free destination weddings here.
Whether you’re after that dream beach wedding, or are more of the among-the-trees-in-a-forest type of person… Or if you’re looking for simple yet elegant, or maybe something a little over the top like a private yacht wedding…
Phuket will delight you with her options, and be sure to bring you some pre-wedding ease.
There’s the smell of the ocean, luscious tropical trees and jungles, and gorgeous sunset views always guaranteed.
PS: A lot of the hotels mentioned have their own wedding services to help you along with the planning, work with you and your wedding planner every step of the way.
1. World famous views, and complimentary 2h massage included! – Baba Nest @ Sri Panwa
Wow this is an amazing, amazing place, built along the hillside of Cape Panwa, at the far end of south east Phuket. It’s amazing for a day of romance, away from the world in this stunning tropical paradise! (Cue the sunset weddings~*)

Now, unlike the other hotels, there’s only one venue at Sri Panwa for weddings, and it’s held on their world famous rooftop bar area, Baba Nest – with INCREDIBLE 360° ocean views.

Let’s be real, would you really want to have it anywhere else after checking that view out?!

It’s open with something a little different and they’ve kept ceremonial decor simple, since the floor and backdrop add enough on their own!

2. It’s truly special here with butterfly releasing and fire dancing – The Boathouse Phuket
If you and your special someone simply adore the ocean and love waking up to the beach, then The Boathouse Phuket is exactly what you’re looking for.
Proposals, destination weddings and honeymoons have all been held here simply due to the elegance and luxury of this beautiful beachfront stay! They’ll spoil you and accommodate your every need.

You can also work closely with their wedding planner with the flower arrangements as well as designing the menu together with the head chef – if you’re foodies I’m sure this will tick one of your boxes!

They offer a ton of wedding packages, from the Premium Sunset Package to the Castaway Wedding Package – there’s something here for every Bride and Groom. Even if you want a Classic Beachside Wedding, or an Ocean Wedding with a Thai touch… They’re all great options!
Choose from 5 romantic wedding venues ranging from their iconic restaurant, the beachside terrace, their rooftop Sunset Lounge and more.
And if you’re looking for something extra, extra special…
Their butterfly releasing is a moment of unexpectedly blissful beauty, and the fire dancing on the beach is simply mesmerising (inclusive in the package!).

3. Why not choose a wedding on your very own private island?! – The Naka Island
Absolutely stunning, this is only available via a short speedboat journey away. It’s a uniquely private and intimate affair on your own private island, just off the coast of Phuket.
Naka Island feels like a mix of Mediterranean/Moroccan/Thai island, and if you love a good aesthetic, you’ll be really pleased with the beauty of this place – naturalistic, exotic and raw.

Their Western and Thai wedding packages are the same price, and you can also opt for their ‘Just the Two of Us’ package! (49,999 Baht)
For food and extras:
You can tailor the dining to suit your needs, but they do offer 3 choices. Continental cuisine with a 3-course meal, Thai cuisine family-style and Barbeque Buffet.
They also have a gorgeous chapel – wow – or you can opt for the Meka Sky Lounge (sheltered) with 360º panoramic views of the ocean. Other venues include their spectacular pool deck, garden beach or entirely private beach – of course.

They can also organise your wedding cake, videographer, even ice sculptures (if that’s your thing!), letter in fireworks, and cabaret show!
(BTW, do consider that it’s on a private island. There’s a total of 67 completely tropical-style villas. They’re stunning, and you can hire out the entire resort for your wedding.

4. The most gorgeous jungle wedding photos you ever did see – Keemala Phuket
Nestled among a thicket of treehouses and dense forestry, this very natural ambiance and location makes a truly magical setting for the jungle wedding of your dreams.
Photo Via Weddings_hitchbird, Gam_rati
Take a romantic stroll along a bridge and through towering trees and utopia. Uhhhhh amazing, amazing wedding photos, I’m just saying.
Photo Via Hitchbird, Tua-Toh-Production
Photo Via Brendandonohuefilm, Wedding-Chicks
This could basically be like a fairy forest! I mean they call it the ‘Enchanted Wedding Package’ for a reason, right?!
Photo Via Gam_rati
Photo Via Taramilktea, Thailand-Wedding-Guru
If you love being in nature (or forest bathing), this will be the perfect setup for you. It has a very enchanted woodlands feel to it. The actual wedding is rustically decorated and sticks to the theme of the resort – which is exquisite – so no fears there.
Photo Via Eyecharlene, Rajbelandres
If you do choose the wedding package, it also includes all the extras and help you might need! Such as Hair & Make-up specialist and a private Photographer for 2 hours. Sounds like quite the deal, no?
5. Wedding in a dreamy island manor or on a private yacht?? – Cape Panwa
If you and your hubby/bride-to-be are fans of architecture, you may just possibly fall in love with this beauty…
It almost feels like your very own island manor on the hill, set among the tropical trees.
Their different venues around the resort are simply beautiful and really tastefully designed. I love ‘Panwa House’ – a gorgeous old Sino-Portuguese building where tall palm trees line the sides – how dreamy…
Photo Via Koro-Studio, Ashtrix86
Photo Via Thailand-wedding-photographer-riess, Timinbangkok, Sokolov_photo
And if you feel like being fancy or simply love the ocean, you can opt for a Deluxe Yacht Wedding (max 40 guests for this space just FYI). Their Terrace and Beach Wedding packages are as equally exquisite.
Photo Via ETB-Travel-News-Australia, Weddingdestinations
Photo Via Dreamwed, Her-World
They offer divine extras too, just to make your wedding that much more; classical Thai music, traditional Thai wedding gowns, and there’s even a long drum parade!

PS: They don’t provide any legal services so make sure to organise yours beforehand, I don’t even want to type the words implying how distarious that would be if forgotten!
PPS. Weddings here should take place here either early morning before 9.30am or after 3pm (Due to the hot weather they say, which makes sense) so plan bearing that in mind.
6. Walk down the aisle on a bed of flowers – Banyan Tree
Imagine yourself walking down the aisle on a garden of beautiful and fragrant Frangipanis, or next to the famous Phuket Lagoons – as flowers and soft lights hang from tree branches and garden spaces.
Photo Via Myoverseaswedding, Twt_tyng
Banyan Tree offers four gorgeous venues, and each feels as magical and looks as pretty as the other! It doesn’t just feel like your typical lawn/beach wedding. Others include a beach wedding on private Bangtao Beach, or you may also opt for their in-villa wedding.

This is the ultimate in luxury, and get this – you can even have a romantic dining experience on a private longtail boat in the middle of the lagoon, with candlelight under the stars. This is hard to beat, if you’re interested in something special/romantic to do pre-wedding!
Photo Via Victoriabonya, Weddingsutra
Not only do they offer wedding venue packages, but they also have a wedding concierge package and a honeymoon package too!
Photo Via Hfreed11
FYI, they can provide a Priest for western weddings if needed, but they do charge extra for this.
7. Getting married in a fairytale – Mom Tri’s Villa Royale
This is a beautiful choice if you’re looking for something small, intimate and something unique compared to the usual Phuket beach weddings.
This on the other hand, is more like a tiny little fairy garden in a beautiful Traditional Thai-style boutique hotel – no resort vibes.
It has this fairytale-ness about it, with tons of flowers in soft shades, petals all around the gardens, lanterns, and trees dotted in fairy lights – it’s all very, very pretty if you ask me.
Villa Royale has been organising, and helping guests with arranging weddings for 15 years to date, and they do amazing small and super intimate weddings to a tee.
Photo Via Ellen_the_unicorn
Photo Via Hitchbird
It’s next to the beach – I mean, we’re in Phuket and the beach is basically 10 mins away from everywhere – so if you still wish to have those on-the-beach wedding photos, you can still get it done.
The actual wedding space itself is exquisite, classic and tasteful, truly the epitome of eloquence for a perfect wedding day.
Photo Via TravelCatFL, Qu0320
8. Have a hassle-free beach wedding! – Renaissance Phuket
I absolutely love the space around this resort, it doesn’t feel white and bright by the sea but more lush with tropical forest by the ocean vibes.
The wedding ceremony space here is small and intimate between fairy trees and sunsets with lots of pink hues and looks very magical.
Photo Via Phuketphotographer, Phuketbestphotographer_
Facing the beach, you can also have your beach wedding right on Mai Khao Beach, overlooking the Andaman Sea.
Photo Via Kk.yeung, Jaclynsathantho
Their 3 main wedding spaces are all stunners; Beach Front Lawn (covered in fairy lights), Renaissance Ballroom (it’s all in the name!) – and The Lounge, a beautiful open space that shelters guests from rain with a protective roof overhead.

9. Wedding by the rocky sapphire beach – The Surin Phuket
This is what you call a truly beautiful wedding, down to the last detail and every tiny smidgen of decor.
Sophisticated and oozing island elegance, glimmering fairy lights and flowers are used to add a lovely finesse to the wedding setup.

Located on Pansea Beach with simply stunning white sands and coconut trees, you and your guests will have the perfect moments to snap a memories to last a lifetime.

Speaking of photos, the bay of the beach here is gorgeous with lots of stunning, rich blue waters and rockery which make for beautiful wedding photos!

You can not only have your destination wedding here, you can also renew your wedding vows too!
PS: There’s an extra wedding venue rental fee at 50,000 Baht for each private function.
10. Get married in the ‘heavens of all heavens’… Sound good? – Paresa
At Paresa, it’s all about relaxation and peacefulness. They call it the ‘heavens of all heavens’ and your big day will be sure to carry the same feeling.
Photo Via Nindka, Phuket_wedding_planner, Sayeswedding
They’re perched on seaside slopes by the ocean, surrounded by a luscious tropical forest, and wow… The photos of your special day are sure to be stupendous – especially among the cliffs and rocks.
Photo Via Darinimages, Gw_garachan, Sorlo1
Photo Via Nindka
This is a really elegant choice for your special day, and what we like is that its style here is also a little bit different. It feels authentic and unique, almost like ancient Roman times filled with rose petals! (You can also wake up the next morning to a sparkling wine breakfast-in-bed…. Ugh how dreamy.)
Small extras provided include a fireworks display and traditional Thai musical instrument performances that add nice touches – and there’s a cooking school here..

11. Here’s a rustic wedding setup with untouched beaches – SALA Phuket
Perfect for a beach lawn wedding or on the beach itself – you can choose exactly where you want the ceremony to happen on your special occasion!
Photo Via Nindka
It’s right next to the beautiful Mai Khao Beach on the northwestern coast of Phuket, so it has a different kind of beach feeling here – almost rustic and untouched and the trees seem to dance.
Photo Via Nindka-Photography

The decor is sweet, simple and very pretty, and you can expect a mix of English charm in there too. Think loads of white-washed furniture, candles in jars and dainty white roses.
Photo Via Nindka-Photography
They also offer a private yacht cruise, and the bride and groom’s stay includes a complimentary upgrade on your night’s stay º plus breakfast-in-bed the next day and a 2-hour couples’ treatment in the spa. Not forgetting evening cocktails and tapas the following evening. Niceee!

12. ‘If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a big surprise’ – Rosewood Phuket
Ever wanted to get married in the woods?
The decor at Rosewood Phuket is incredibly beautiful… Imagine beautiful rustic, natural woods, classic flowers, wicker chairs, old suitcases, whites, creams, pinks, soft greens… You catch my drift…

There are three absolutely charming and very pretty options to get married in.
1. The glasshouse with its full-length windows, tons of natural light, woods – also great for the reception part of the wedding.
2. The courtyard is intimate and its background showcases a gorgeous cascade of swirling trees and hills. A great choice for intimate rehearsal dinners, pre-wedding gatherings and bridal luncheons.
3. The Garden Beach & Lawn area surrounded by a forest of trees – it also features a rustic stone staircase for those grand entrances!

13. I’m pretty sure this is what every girl dreams a beach wedding to be like – Impiana Private Villas
Now this ladies and gentlemen, this is the epitome of an island beach wedding in a setting that is intimate and just dreamy.
Located on the cliffsides of Kata Noi, the backdrop here is absolutely breathtaking and the sea is like a lake beyond it. The space where you tie the knot is open and spacious so it just looks amazing with really fresh ocean side feels.
Photo Via _leonardcheng, Team_haku_snap
Nice design, simple, soft colours, elegant/sophisticated, but still modern. From paper lanterns to fairy lights in flowers, they’re all so pretty! And they offer a nice variety of different marriage arches to choose from.
Photo Via Sayaphotography, Vicky1987522, Tropicawedding.com_
If you fancy something classic and oh-so-fancy, they can organise a violinist/pianist or floating lanterns and even fireworks in your name!
Photo Via Fifi_z, Swimmingnudibranch, Tan_sippawadee
Of course, I have to mention the food, their canape menu I have to say looks simply to.die.for but they have loads of different food options to go with that too – amazing.
There’s only 11 villas in total on the property, so it’s really private and totally feels like a private island even though it’s in Kata Noi.

14. Gorgeous gardens and loads of different venue options – JW Marriott Resort and Spa
The most gorgeous lawn wedding you could ever imagine, flowing between a garden of trees, flowers and leaping plants and greens.

Photo Via Phuket-best-photographer, Travel-_-Living, Hitchbird
If you’re on the lookout for professionalism, and a super fancy wedding, this is a top choice. You are gonna pay a heavy penny for it BUTT they do do the whole works.
They have TEN different rooms where your celebration can be held, including a chapel, and I love the imaginative decor – think lanterns of beautiful butterflies.
Photo Via Myoverseaswedding
Here they offer three types of themes; Western, Thai or Indian Wedding, and the food is done by their award-winning restaurant.

This is perfect if you’ve been dreaming of that perfect beach wedding all your life, whilst the sun sets behind you, stretching across a long and vast horizon of nothingness, ah….
Photo Via BIC-Event
Snap back to reality quickly with me here! The really special part is that it features an authentic chapel settled on one of the lagoons’ banks, which is quite a rarity amongst hotels in Phuket.

It’s also located on Bang Tao Beach and this package includes help throughout the process of your big day with the resort’s wedding planner.

16. Walk on water down the aisle like in Crazy Rich Asians! – Trisara
This could totally be mistaken for somewhere down the coast on Europe or even South Africa. It’s a totally oceanic space with a certain softness to it that looks like it almost has a built-in beautiful Instagram/VSCO filter.
Set up next to the seaside, the signature thing about this place is they have a walk-on-water wedding stage!
Photo Via Sayeswedding
Photo Via Semagin_phuket
Set up seaside and in the garden, you may choose from the Sunset Pavilion, Private Residence, The Deck and Trisara Beach. Whichever you choose, all are equally beautiful. However, their signature wedding provision is their walk-on-water wedding stages – if you fancy the luxurious idea.

It’s also just 15-minutes from the airport so it makes it convenient for guests since it’s not in the middle of busy and bustling Phuket.
17. And now it’s time to kiss the bride on your private yacht – TwinPalms
It seems to be a favourite among the people, this tropical resort and elegant and exclusive wedding destination is located along Surin beach – so it’s still close enough to get to town/Patong if other guests are staying here.
Photo Via Andamanphotowork
It’s just metres from Surin Beach, a great choice for the beach lovers, and they offer different ceremony options from the seaside to a private yacht!
Their Thai Sala (those typical open-style Thai pavilions) is very beautiful and is placed in the middle of a pool so you’re surrounded by water.
Photo Via Bobby_boyz
And lastly, I’m sure you’ll be pleased to hear they actually have an arrangement of different themed weddings (not just your usual Western and Thai).
How about these: Western, Thai Monk Blessed Wedding, Thai Water Wedding Ceremony, Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony and Wedding Vowels Renewal.
