We are able to offer different types of wedding ceremonies and vow renewal celebrations in Koh Samui. Below are a sample of ceremonies that can take place at Napasai.
Buddhist Wedding Ceremony
A wedding on Koh Samui can take many forms. If you are not a Buddhist but admire the beliefs and graceful rituals of the religion, you can be married with the monks approval, regardless of your religious persuasion. Blessings from the monks chanted in the ancient language convey an almost hypnotic sense of peace and tranquility and will give your ceremony a sense that your union is welcomed and entirely in place, in this exotic and foreign land.
Catholic Wedding Ceremony
There is a Catholic church on Koh Samui and the priest encourages couples to be wed at the alter, but like Buddhist monks, he will also visit you at the venue of your choice to perform Catholic rites.
Secular (Non-Religious) Wedding Ceremony
If you would like to have a non-religious wedding, you can have a local English-speaking celebrant or a loved one help you recite your vows in the presence of your wedding party or witnesses chosen from Napasai resort if it is just the two of you.
Wedding Vows - Renewal
If you are holidaying on Koh Samui with your spouse and perhaps your children, as a way of celebrating the years you have spent together and the love you have shared, you might consider taking the opportunity to renew your commitment to one another in a formal way against the backdrop of a tropical oasis.
Note: Legal Requirements
Foreign nationals of all countries can be married legally in the Kingdom of Thailand, provided they go to their embassy in Bangkok with the necessary documents at least two weeks prior to the planned date of the wedding. These documents should be sent to us at Napasai at least two weeks before your wedding day in order to get all documents on time from Embassy. We reccommend that you approach your embassy or instruct a marriage lawyer specialising in Thai wedding law before confirming any arrangements.
