What makes weddings at Samui Buri Beach Resort so very special?


10-11One of the main reasons that people choose to marry at Samui Buri Beach Resort is for the privacy. The beach here is quiet, so you won’t get random people passing through your service. And, as the resort is in Mae Nam, the view not only includes the stunning island of Koh Pha-Ngan, but the sunset too. And from the beach in front of 'Samui Buri' you can even spy the boats coming in and out of the Lomprayah catamaran pier – it’s such a soothing spot.

    Pre-packaged weddings are all-too-common these days. And if that’s what you’re after, then great! But for some, the idea of having the exact same wedding day as someone else is less appealing. The ethos behind weddings at Samui Buri is to make life as simple as possible for you, without sacrificing that all-important personalisation. Samui Buri’s Wedding Planner, Nisachol Sriwarin, known as Khun Nisa, adapts things to the specific needs of the bride and groom. In her opinion, the way to make the perfect wedding is to be flexible – not having to adhere to a set plan or format.

      And every element of the wedding can be tailored to the particular needs of the bride and groom – for example, Russian couples in the past have opted to decorate the backdrop of the wedding reception with a giant canvas depicting a scene from Russia to make them feel at home. Khun Nisa will go above and beyond to make the aesthetic everything you have dreamed of.

     Couples who decide to marry on Samui, generally speaking, look at a number of hotels to find the one that suits them best. Khun Nisa explains that those who choose Samui Buri over others, do so primarily because the privacy of the resort appeals to them. Weddings there are perfectly suited to couples that want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Chaweng and Samui’s busy centre for their special day. It may only be 20 minutes away, but that little bit of distance makes all the difference when it comes to creating a relaxed ambience. And, as everyone knows that tensions can run high at a wedding, a calm environment makes all the difference in keeping the vibe tranquil

       There are two main options for couples at Samui Buri – a Western wedding, or contemporary Thai wedding that’s combined with a Western wedding. Most opt for the combined wedding to get elements of the local culture incorporated in their special day. It makes sense really, seeing as the ceremony is taking place in Thailand. The day starts with a contemporary Thai ceremony, which includes a Buddhist monk’s blessing and holy water ceremony, and is followed by a Western ceremony, both held on the beach.

      To imagine the look of a wedding at Samui Buri, just visualise flower stands dotted around a seating area on the beach. Then an aisle covered in fresh rose petals, at the end of which is a flower arch – which the bride and groom have personalised with their own choice of flowers. After the ceremony, flower confetti is tossed in the air for the celebratory finale as the happy couple walk off as newly-weds. It’s a truly magical scene.

      With the wedding packages, the couple also get a night in one of Samui Buri’s finest deluxe pool villas, along with breakfast for two. And on the evening of the big day, the villa will be specially done up with romantic flower bedding. Other extras include afternoon tea on the wedding day, a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach – with either a Thai or Western set meal – and a bottle of sparkling wine and fresh fruit basket.

      Another inclusive extra is a Couples Honeymoon Package in the spa, which lasts two and a half hours. The duo get pampered with an aloe vera body wrap or coffee body scrub, an aromatherapy oil massage and facial treatment. And the wedding party get some great deals too. Like, for example, special room rates for three or four night stays that fall during the wedding period.

      For the big day, a lot of couples like to set up an open bar for their guests and put a prearranged sum of money behind it – and after that amount has been drunk the guests pay for their own drinks. To help maximise your money – and get you in the holiday mood – the bar staff give you the option of selecting a particular cocktail for the day, like mai tais served in pineapples or pina coladas in coconuts, for example. That way costs are cut so you get the most out of your budget – not to mention it really amps up the beach wedding theme. No doubt your guests will love the fresh, fruity flavours too.

      To top it all off, the wedding cake is even made in-house as well. Samui Buri has a special section in its technically equipped kitchen just for making wedding cakes. And specialised bakers too. But that shouldn’t be a surprise to you by now, because as you can see, the staff at Samui Buri like to go above and beyond to make each couple’s wedding day one they’ll remember forever.
