A kaleidoscope of glistening temples, incredible beaches, energetic cities and tranquil villages, Thailand is enthralling and seductive and will captivate you for years after your first visit.

Spend a couple of days enjoying the excitement of Bangkok as you complete the legal paperwork, then travel to your hotel to relax and prepare for your wedding celebration.

You can choose an extraordinary Buddhist-style ceremony involving chanting monks, blessings and the lighting of candles, or a western ceremony where you can exchange vows and rings in a stunning setting. Most ceremonies take place in the grounds of your hotel, in the gardens or on the beach.
