Why Choose Faraway Weddings?

Why Choose Us

Background and experience


Faraway Weddings started organizing weddings in 2004 and currently arrange approximately 100 weddings per year. Our feedback from clients is available to find on our Facebook Page or on Trip Advisor, as well as testimonials on our website.
The company brand has developed during this time and we have exhibited at The National Wedding Show in the UK for the last 5 consecutive years. We attend this annual show because we realized early on that it is quite a leap of faith to book a wedding with an internet based company, without ever meeting anyone face to face. By attending the show our aim was, and still is, to actually meet with clients who have already booked online or those who have been on our website but need some peace of mind that we really exist. Obviously this only benefits our UK based clients at this stage, but this also shows other nationalities that we have some substance to the company.
The wedding industry is booming on the island of Koh Samui and more and more people are offering wedding services. It is always advisable to check out the company and do your research, especially when you may be booking a wedding two years in the future and need to have confidence that your wedding company will still be around.

The Faraway Villa


The Faraway Villa is the only dedicated wedding venue on Koh Samui and this is a purposely designed wedding venue with full back-up options in terms of weather conditions as well as power supply.
We have a lovely garden and terrace, a beachfront bar, garden sala and of course the white sandy beach. There’s an indoor function room, a bride’s salon, and a groom’s room. Behind the scenes we have a staff kitchen, an outside catering area, a purpose built floristry area, recycling centre and staff bathrooms.

Spectacular Sunsets


The Faraway Villa is situated on Lipa Noi Beach on the west coast and is widely regarded as one of the best sunset locations on Samui.

Quiet Beach Location


Despite the soft white sand and sunsets, Lipa Noi has remained a relatively quiet beach location with only a handful of small resorts and private residences.

No tie-in to accommodation


As The Faraway Villa is a dedicated wedding day venue, we do not have any onsite accommodation. This was a deliberate decision and gives you and your guests the opportunity to stay wherever you want and at whatever budget you have available.
We do have our own reservations manager who can advise and arrange accommodation for you and your guests which will specifically suit the individual needs.

Native English Speaking Wedding Planners


All of our wedding planners are English which takes away any concerns over communication. They are all also working legally in Thailand with appropriate work permits and visas. You wouldn’t want immigration turning up at your wedding and taking your planner or your wedding celebrant away!!

Unique Online Wedding Tools


Once you have secured a wedding date you have access to a section of our website which is just for you. You can browse in detail all of the options available for the wedding ceremony, flowers, decorations entertainment, and so on. This includes a large library of images to assist you in making the right choices.

Personal Attention


At Faraway Weddings we only ever arrange one wedding per day ensuring that you receive the full attention from our whole wedding team.

The Faraway Team


We operate with a full team of staff who are dedicated to take care of every element of your wedding. The company maintains control over the team and only outsources in those areas which are necessary. We have our own floristry team; two teams of wedding staff on the wedding day, the first arrive in the morning and take care of the physical setting up of everything and the venue preparations, the second arrive in the afternoon and overlap with the first team throughout all elements of the wedding up until the dinner reception. The first team then leave and the second team remain to provide service for you and your guests until the end of the night.

Value for money bar!


One of our biggest selling points is that we provide a very affordable bar service. There is a bar set-up cost, which is on a sliding scale depending on how many guests you have. This cost includes the physical setting up of the bar, professional bar staff, glass hire, glass collectors and washers, and all bar sundries such as ice, straws, openers etc.
We then provide you with a price list direct from our wholesalers. There is 5% added to this price list to cover the purchase, collection and storage of the drinks items and delivery to the venue. This 5% also covers the instances where an item may not be available from our usual supplier and we have to pay a little more from elsewhere.
Together with your wedding planner you select the drinks that you want and the quantities and you pay the wholesale price inclusive of the added 5% only.
To provide an example of the savings: Through our purchase system you pay 32 baht per bottle of Singha Beer. In a shop you will usually pay 38 baht per bottle. In most bars the absolute minimum you will pay is 60-70 baht and at a resort you can expect prices to start from 100-400 baht + tax and service charge. Therefore this represents a huge financial saving.
We also do not charge any corkage on drinks brought in to the venue. In fact due to the heavy duty imposed on Champagne and wine in Thailand, we actively encourage people wherever possible to bring their own through duty free.

Food Glorious Food


Our caterers have provided the food for all of our weddings since 2004. Everything is cooked onsite and the quality and quantity is truly exceptional. Our Thai chefs are held in such esteem that in 2012 our team actually cooked for the Thai Royal Family. This was on the same day as one of our weddings and so they cooked lunch for the princess before coming to The Faraway Villa to cook for our wedding reception dinner.
For our western menus our Thai chefs are supported in person on the wedding day by an executive chef from one of the island’s leading 5 star resorts.

Online Gifts


Our online gift registry allows you to select a number of possible gift items for those attending, or those who cannot make the wedding but would like to enhance your day or your honeymoon experience by buying you a personal gift.
The gifts are split into four sections. The first contains actual physical gifts. This is a small section as the kind of gifts you can take back with you are limited due to weight and size. The second section contains gifts relating to actual elements of your wedding day. So, for example, you may want an elephant for your big day but it over stretches your budget. Simply select it as a gift option and someone can buy this service for you to enjoy and impact on your special day.
The third section is made up of experiences which can make your stay on the island more enjoyable and memorable such as spa treatments, tours, cooking classes, fine dining experiences and so on. And the final section offers Faraway Wedding Vouchers. These vouchers are accepted at a large number of the island's finest restaurants and spas, as well as a few shops and services where vouchers work best. The vouchers can also be used to pay towards your final wedding balance.

Honeymoons


If you put your faith in Faraway Weddings to plan your wedding day then why not trust Faraway Honeymoons to plan the few days or weeks after your wedding too. We have exclusive Honeymoon Packages created specifically for our guests at a number of exceptional honeymoon hotels on Samui and the surrounding islands.
