It’s a very unique setup for a wedding venue.

There is nothing better than having a moonlight dinner on a beach after your wedding nuptials. Like most wedding planners in Thailand you need to plan early as Phuket makes for an excellent backdrop to any wedding in Thailand.
You will note that the ceremonies which are offered by wedding planners are not legally binding and you have to still register your marriage after the ceremony. You can register you marriage in your home country or register you marriage in Thailand with a Thai marriage certificate as an added memento to your wedding in the Gulf of Thailand. Note that the marriage certificate issued in Thailand is legally binding in your home country. If you have any questions about this then speak to an attorney in Thailand for more information.
