Phuket is the best location for large destination weddings in Thailand
I photograph destination weddings all over Southeast Asia, but I spend the majority of my time as a Phuket wedding photographer – it’s where I shoot the greatest number of events each year. And when I say Phuket, I’m including Khao Lak and Phang Nga, which are just up the coast from the island.
5 reasons why Phuket is a great choice for a destination wedding
- Phuket has its own international airport, making it very easy to get to.
- Having a wedding in Phuket means most guests will spend at least one night in Bangkok. And who doesn’t love one night in Bangkok?
- Thai food is great.
- There are hundreds of fantastic hotels and villas to choose from for your wedding venue.
- From ladyboy cabaret to snorkeling off a catamaran, there’s a ton of activities for guests before the wedding day

Maybe most importantly, Phuket is home to some of the very best wedding planners in Thailand, if not all of Asia.
