Phuket has beautiful beaches, lots to see and beautiful weather. Why wouldn’t you want to have your wedding on this stunning island. Another bonus is that it is easily accessible via the international airport and a road bridge which links Phuket to the mainland. It has a vast array of accommodation and luxury villas, international restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, Phuket really does have something to suit everybody.
If people come to Phuket to get married they usually have come to have their wedding ceremony, with a paradise backdrop but this is not usually the legal part of the wedding, just the ceremony, as they have usually got married beforehand in their country of origin.
What usually takes place is a civil ceremony on the beach or in a luxury villa, with such beautiful surroundings, why not?
Just remember that in Thailand a marriage is only legal once paperwork has been completed and officially registered at the district office (known as amphur’ or ‘khet’).
So if you want to do the legal bit in Thailand the best way to ensure you are doing this correctly is to hire a Thai solicitor that will complete the paperwork for you and then the marriage will be registered at:
Phuket Wedding Registration Office (Amphur)
It can be quite a lengthy process so you will need to ensure you have factored that into your wedding plans.
Next you will need a wedding planner…
