Places to Elope in Thailand
In 2017 we spent some time in Koh Lanta and we simply fell in love with it! Koh Lanta is a group of several paradisiacal islands situated just off the coast of Krabi with an abundance of nature and stunning beaches! So we partnered up with select suppliers in Krabi and Koh Lanta to offer our Elopement Packages for Thailand in this beautiful place.
Powdery sand beaches that curve gently into clear water with blue mountains on the horizon and the iconic long tail boats floating in the distance. In Thailand there is certainly no shortage of isolated wild beach locations to have your small wedding ceremony. Regardless if it is mile-long stretches of sand you have in mind or a more secluded little bay enclosed by tall limestone cliffs, in Thailand you are sure to find the perfect spot for your intimate Beach Wedding or Elopement.
A little further away from the beaches, you will find yourself in the more forested and mountainous part of the island. Spread troughout Koh Lanta are many genuinly impressive spots of jungle, often convenientely located only a few minutes ride away from the next village. The more adventurous bride and groom can speak their vows and take their wedding pictures embedded in the tropical enviroment of Thailand’s jungles with its colorful flora and exotic sounds all around.
Luxury Beach Villa
Luxury Villas or Beach Resorts accommodate you and your guests under the highest standard, surrounded by beautiful scenery. They offer you complete privacy for your ceremony while providing all the comfort you can imagine. Enjoy Thailand’s flavourful cuisine and let yourself be spoiled. Get married at the private beach or have a sunset wedding on the rooftop of your resort – it’s completely up to you!
In Thai culture, a wedding is considered a social event rather than a religious one. While marriage is not necessarily a part of Buddhism, locals and foreigners often ask monks to perform a Wedding Blessing Ceremony for harmony, mutal respect and honesty in marriage. A buddhist blessing takes place in the morning. Afterwards you can speak your own vows with a more personal note at a location of your choice.
Another location to celebrate your Beach Wedding in Thailand is one of the relaxed Beach Bars dotted along the western coast of Koh Lanta Island. Hidden in between tall palm trees, the wooden houses with a shady terrace and a stunning seaside view make for great places to elope in Thailand. Speak your vows while the sun sets over the water, surrounded by all the food, music and the people you love most.
Our Packages are good for…
Eloping gives you the freedom to focus completely on each other and fully enjoy your wedding day. To elope to Thailand can mean to go for an Intimate Wedding for two or to invite some of your closest family and friends to join you. Our keep-it-simple Elopement-Packages are perfect for groups of up to ca. 20 people.
A small wedding spares you the hassle (and expanse) of a “normal” wedding. Based on our packages for Elopements & Vow Renewals, this option is perfect for couples who still like to keep things simple, but want to share this moment with family and friends. Our Small Wedding Packages are designed for groups of ca. 20 to 60 people.
Regardless of if you have been married five or fifty years, renewing your vows is a meaningful way to celebrate your marriage. Because a Vow Renewal is not a legally binding ceremony, you don’t have to worry about legal requirements and are free in your choices for location, date and officiant for your Vow Renewal in Thailand.

In Thailand your choices for flowers and cake might be limited or different from the ones you would get at home. Our usual flower set-up consists out of purple and white orchids, white and yellow chrisantemum or red roses. These flowers are resistant to the heat and will look good even after a few hours in the sun.
But if you wish a certain type of flowers for the decoration or your bouquet, we can arrange that too! Just tell us what you had in mind and we will talk about the available options.
Generally, the more “western” the cake, the more expansive it is. The easiest option would be to go for a simple Thai cake.
We do work with a bakery that can make more traditional Wedding Cakes and can fulfill your special request.
For music, we work directly with the Musician to establish your music preferences or choose form a list of songs recommended by us.
The best time to visit the south of Thailand in tems of weather is during the cool and (mostly) dry season between November and early April. During this time the temperatures are manageable and the rainfall is kept to a minimum.
During the rainy season form May to Octobre heavy rainfalls should be expected. And though the weather is less predictable, even during this time the rainfalls often last only a few hours in the afternoon or night.
The legal requirements for a wedding registration in Thailand vary depending on your and your partner’s nationality. The steps to a legally binding marriage for foreigners might not be as straightforward as in other countries and require some preparation.
We will guide you through all the legal paperwork and organise everything from a certified translator for your documents to the actual appointment at the registrar’s office. You’ll know exactly what to do…and when!
Yes! Most countries (including the USA and UK) generally accept the validity of a marriage legalized in Thailand. Given that the marriage is executed properly (following all legal requirements) it will be viewed as valid in your home country and treated as if it had been conducted there.
