Secular and Buddhist Thailand Beach Wedding

Secular & Buddhist Thailand Beach Wedding Experience

This popular combination provides a wedding opportunity where East meets West in a merging of traditions and customs. Our Secular and Buddhist Thailand beach wedding offers the best of both worlds where the harmony and splendour of the Buddhist ceremony complements the simplicity and romance of the western secular ceremony. The result is an unforgettable and interesting Thailand beach wedding experience. This non-religious western ceremony is the most popular wedding choice and contains enough Thai elements to make the day very special and a little different to anything previously experienced by most of the guests.

The Buddhist ceremony takes place first in the beachfront Sala ,in the presence of the monks, and combining traditional blessings and Buddhist chants in the ancient Pali language to provide a spiritual union.

This is followed by the secular wedding on the beach which is conducted in a relaxed and natural way befitting of a Thailand beach wedding ceremony, but with an appropriate amount of formality. Wording chosen by the bride and groom, is blended together with recognizable wedding elements such as a vow and ring exchange as well as a symbolic sand ceremony to complete the proceedings.

Imagine the two of you standing on a white sandy beach while the sun begins to set over the Gulf of Thailand. As the gentle sounds of the sea fill your senses, it’s hard to think of more perfect way to start your married life together.
