Your wedding day is a truly special event. It’s a day where you stand proud and happy in front of friends and family to cement your relationship with your soul mate.
Thailand has long been a popular choice for bridal couples worldwide. The opportunity to combine your wedding and honeymoon in one destination has an easy appeal for those looking for the ultimate in wedding venues. It has also become popular with the LGBTQ+ community for its open-mindedness and freedom in allowing same-sex weddings. And where better to celebrate this momentous occasion and enjoy the hospitality and beauty of a magical beach wedding than on one of the most beautiful regions in Thailand: Phang Nga near Phuket
The Aleenta Phuket Resort & Spa is one of the jewels of Phuket and is experienced in hosting both heterosexual and LGBT weddings. Same-sex marriages are not yet legally recognised in Thailand and gay wedding ceremonies are purely symbolic, however this doesn’t detract from the care and attention that the wedding planning team gives to their clients. Legalities aside, there are no real differences between an LGBTQ+ and a heterosexual wedding. Both celebrate love and togetherness, and all couples want their special day to be one to remember for a lifetime. Each detail is deserving of as much time as any other, and the team’s ultimate goal is to give every couple the wedding of their dreams.
Located on the west coast of Phuket, the Aleenta Phuket-Phang Nga Resort & Spa is a mere 30 minutes’ drive from Phuket International Airport. However, this proximity goes out the window when you arrive and immerse yourself in the sparkling blue of the Andaman Sea, the balmy tropical air, and the simple luxury of the resort. Thirty minutes seems like hours as it’s impossible to imagine being so close to a central hub when you’re basking in a Thai beachside paradise.
The combination of suites, residences and villas provides sufficient accommodation for small to large weddings. Each unit is beautifully designed to give a feeling of space with the natural surroundings providing a tropical backdrop. The décor is simple and elegant, and your guests will feel pampered, relaxed and ready to embrace your union with the one you love.
If you ‘re choosing a location like Aleenta Phuket for your beach wedding, chances are that you want to feel the sand between your toes while you say “I do”. The crystal blue Andaman Sea and pristine white sands of Natai Beach create a picture perfect setting for this memorable occasion. The Aleenta team can make it as casual or formal as you would like, with beautifully dressed chairs, a floral-wreathed archway or even casual picnic blankets on the beach. Your wedding, your choice.
The Aleenta Phuket’s Grand Satis Villa is another option for your ceremony, but also lends itself to a post-formality reception or party and gives you a degree of privacy from the rest of the resort. The four-bedroomed unit opens out onto a large pool and lovingly-landscaped grounds, with the sea stretching back to the horizon. Whether you choose to go all out with an LGBTQ+ rainbow theme, or keep it elegant and simple, the Grand Status Villa gives you the flexibility to bring your wedding vision to life.
The wedding team perfectly understands different couples’ needs and desires. What one couple values in their wedding may not be a factor for another couple. Team’s and resort’s ability to be flexible is invaluable in organising a successful event. The degree to which you wish to involve yourself in the wedding preparations also varies from couple to couple. You may be overly attentive to the arrangements or you might prefer to take a step back and let the wedding planning team take the reins. For some LGBT couples, it’s less about the detail and more a celebration that they can get married at all, whereas for others, grandeur and elegance plays as large a role as the knowledge that they can say “I do” in front of their loved ones.
The wedding packages at Aleenta Phuket Resort are varied, catering to many different tastes and for groups of up to 150 guests. Each has been lovingly crafted to make your preparations as seamless as possible, while also allowing for changes to be made to align it more with your vision. This may mean altering the menu choices, adding in a cocktail or gin bar, or choosing a different style of music. It’s all about you, and the team goes the extra mile to ensure you get what you want.
By the time most LGBT couples get to Aleenta Phuket, the legal side of their marriage is done and in the eyes of their country’s law, they are partners for life. A beach wedding on one of the best beaches in Phuket, although purely symbolic, makes it all the more real. The Aleenta resort team takes immense pride in setting each LGBTQ+ couple off on their path into the future by delivering on their wedding dream.
