Why choose Koh Samui over Phuket for your Southeast Asia destination wedding?
Although I regularly photograph weddings in places like Phuket and Bangkok, there’s something really special when I get to be a Koh Samui wedding photographer. I spent three months with my family here when my daughter was a newborn, and it will always have a special place in my heart. Maybe that’s why I feel connected here, and why the weddings I document here take on extra significance to me.
The Thai private villa island
Phuket is bigger and has a lot more going on, but Samui’s a more laid-back and intimate island which still offers a lot for a destination wedding party. From boat cruises and stunning private villas to some of the best food in the country (overall the food scene is better than Phuket), Koh Samui is a wonderful choice for a destination wedding.
Best Koh Samui Wedding Venues
Koh Samui must have the greatest concentration of incredible private villas per square meter anywhere in the world. From the beachside modernism of YL Residence to the South Asian flavor of Villa Katrani, Samui has a villa for every taste. For couples looking for a resort wedding, look no further than The Conrad and the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam. Both excellent choices with fantastic service and amenities.
Best Koh Samui Wedding Planner
Aey Dujarat of Dreamcatchers Events is simply the best. I have worked with her a dozen times, and every single time the couple (and guests) have remarked how amazing she is and how hard she works. It’s true. Whenever a couple contacts me about a Koh Samui wedding, the first thing I do is tell them to get in touch with Aey to be their wedding planner. So should you – you won’t regret it.
