luxury beach wedding
Set high on a peninsula overlooking the Andaman Sea, Amanpuri’s Villa Homes provide a picturesque setting for an informal Thai Buddhist, Christian or non-religious wedding blessing. Set amidst coconut palms, the two to six-bedroom Villa Homes each have a living and open air dining sala, separate bedroom pavilions and spacious common areas with their own pool. Villa Homes offer the seclusion and intimacy of a private home as well as access to Amanpuri’s facilities and services. For ceremonies, the villas can be decorated with flower petals, fragrant jasmine, orchids and floral archways. White and pale pink lotus flowers can float in the pool whilst all open-air spaces can be lit with candles and torches at night.
traditional thai buddhist wedding
A traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony is performed by up to five monks who garland the bride and groom with a string sai mongkon that is then entwined to symbolise the coming together of two individuals. The couple are then blessed with holy water. The wedding party may wish to elaborate on the blessing with traditional Thai music and dancers, a Thai feast, elephant rides or perhaps a cruise on one of Amanpuri’s fleet of luxury vessels. These are available for half-day, full-day and overnight charters. They can also serve as the venue for a small ceremony.
