Thai Island Weddings

At Soneva, the pace of life moves to the pull of the tide, the arc of the sun and the beating hearts of the guests that bring it to life. Here, you will have no choice but to slow down and absorb every precious moment of your wedding day.

From ceremony to cuisine, Soneva’s wedding coordinators will take care of the smallest details, while our specially tailored wedding packages promise luxurious stays and unforgettable experiences for you and your guests. For those who prefer to celebrate in complete privacy, entire island and resort buy-outs are also available, providing you and your guests with the ultimate Soneva experience.

Nestled on the verdant Thai island of Koh Kood amidst breathtaking tropical rainforest and surrounded by the calming blue of the Gulf of Siam, Soneva Kiri offers an unrivalled blend of luxury, environmentally friendly design and unforgettable, authentic Thai experiences.

The ceremony

With hillsides blanketed by ancient rainforests that slope down to coconut shaded beaches and pristine turquoise waters, Soneva Kiri provides the ideal setting for a rustic-chic wedding. Sand, sea, rainforest – whichever backdrop you’ve dreamed of, our experienced wedding team will bring it to life.

Rainforest ceremony

Encircled entirely by the rich green foliage of the untamed island jungle, this magically secluded clearing provides a secret haven in which to exchange your vows. Feel entirely at one with nature as you stand together under the dappled light with your closest friends and family watching on. Immerse in the richness of the rainforest and the warmth of love as you exchange the rings that symbolise eternity.

(Suitable for both intimate and larger ceremonies)

Jetty ceremony

Reaching out into the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand, our wooden jetty offers an all-natural setting for a unique and intimate wedding ceremony. Arrive by a colourful fisherman’s boat to the cheers and applause of your guests waiting expectantly on the deck. Stand beneath a beautiful arch woven from bamboo and fallen flowers gathered from the rainforest, and admire the blue of the sea reflected in your partner’s eyes as you promise forever.

(Suitable for intimate ceremonies only)

Beach ceremony

Our sprawling, soft sand beach is the perfect choice for a larger wedding. Emerge from the shade of the palm trees that line the beach and step lightly and barefooted towards the next stage of your lives. Walk down the aisle strewn with fallen petals gathered from the island, and accept a traditional Thai flower garland as a symbol of good luck. Bask in the light of love from family and friends, before sealing your union with a kiss.

Underwater ceremony

For the less traditional couple, our underwater scuba ceremony is a novel way to exchange vows. Board a petal strewn boat and sail out into the glittering ocean with the one you love. Submerge in the translucent waters and follow the ceremony through a waterproof audio player. With nothing but the tropical fish as witnesses, you will give in to the beauty of utter seclusion.
(Suitable for intimate ceremonies only)

Private villa ceremony

Gazing out to sea from your private jungle-covered cliff top reserve, discover the magic of total seclusion as you say your vows in the company of your closest family and friends. Hands and hearts entwined, celebrate your union on a deck that stretches out over the hilltop against the beauty of the jungle’s exotic soundtrack.
