Faraway was established in 2001 as a villa rental company but quickly noticed the increasing interest in people wanting to get married on Koh Samui.
As the interest grew the decision was made to focus more on this area and in 2004 Faraway Weddings (Thailand Wedding Planners) was launched. Since then the destination wedding industry has boomed and with this growth the expectations of wedding couples have also changed considerably.
10 years of wedding excellence!
As a company we have been a part of this developing industry from the outset and we have grown and evolved to keep meeting the demands and provide excellent weddings.
The company has grown steadily each year and has averaged over 100 weddings per year for the last 6 years. Since we started we have worked at numerous venues, both private villas and resorts, and with guest numbers ranging from zero to over a hundred. Some weddings have been relaxed and simple, some more formal and far more extravagant. The once consistency is our service and professionalism.
We now concentrate on two tried and tested venues where we have total control over the wedding and the venue, and therefore we do not have to rely on any outside staff on the wedding day. This is very important to us and gives you the confidence that all responsibility lies solely with us.
Thailand Wedding Planners
The Faraway Villa is Samui’s only dedicated wedding venue and by far our most popular choice. Like the company our venue has also evolved over the years to provide better facilities and practical solutions to any issues that can arise on a wedding day.
Our alternative venue, Pawanthorn Villas, is a luxury villa estate which takes up a whole bay and offers exceptional accommodation as well as a venue capable of hosting larger wedding parties.
With Faraway Weddings it’s not just about the venue, the flowers and decorations, the music or any other of the essential wedding elements. It is as much about the service, the professionalism and our team. Individually, and as a team, our experienced and expert staff can take care of everything throughout the whole planning period and the wedding day itself. Giving you total peace of mind and removing as many of the wedding related stresses as possible.
The service includes all wedding planning, pre-and post-wedding activities, accommodation bookings, tailor services and even tailor-made honeymoons and special honeymoon packages created solely for Faraway clients at several resorts on Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.
Your own personal Thailand Wedding Planners
Each wedding couple is allocated their own personal Thailand wedding planners and they also obtain access to their own section of our website. This online planning tool allows the couple to browse all options in extensive detail, provide essential information to their wedding planner and also build a scrapbook of ideas to help bring their wedding vision to life.
Communication and personal contact are key in any successfully planned wedding. Our wedding planners are always available to answer emails, we have toll free numbers available for our British and Australian clients to call for free into our office and we exhibit at The UK National Wedding Show in London and Birmingham every year so that we can meet face to face with existing customers and those who would like to meet with us before committing to a booking.
With travel becoming easier in recent years we often have potential clients come to visit the island before making any decisions. There will always be someone available to make an appointment to pick you up and show you our venues and return to our offices to discuss any finer details.
