I Did It Thai Way

The warm and picture-perfect waters make Thailand ideal for a wedding-on-water. Bridal parties and also honeymooners have several options to hire a luxury chartered yacht through virgin islands where you can moor and explore – or attract well-wishes by docking at one of the state-of-the-art new premium marinas. 

The couple that plays together, stays together – so the jungles, rivers and mountains of Thailand are ideal for some outdoor bonding as newlyweds; including ziplining, canopy walks and river kayaking. 

Underwater love is assured in Thailand too with some of the world’s best dive sites. Whether you scuba dive or snorkel, you will encounter rainbow coloured fish, pristine coral reefs while hand-in-hand with your one-and-only. Turtles and dolphins might drop in on your wedded bliss.  

Newly-married couples can collectively get their hands dirty in the kitchen by learning the fine art behind Thai cuisine. Cooking schools that run for a day or several hours in Bangkok, Koh Samui or Phuket will teach you how to decoratively carve fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as the nuances of spice and flavour. Start your married life back home by recreating your own dishes for family and friends.

The beauty about a wedding in Thailand is that all style of ceremonies can be customised – whether your preference is a traditional Thai, Indian, Chinese, Buddhist or Christian ceremony. Further, the value for money on your special day is significant in comparison to wedding expenses in Australia.
