Faraway Weddings Brochure
Faraway Weddings Brochure 2014
Each year we update our online wedding brochure to best highlight Koh Samui weddings and specifically our Koh Samui wedding packages. The brochure is designed to really give a visual guide through a typical Koh Samui beach wedding.
The brochure also helps as an insight to the kind of Koh Samui wedding packages on offer with Faraway Weddings and there is some textual information included to help promote this.
However, the main focus of the brochure is showcase Faraway Wedding Packages and to encourage those viewing the brochure to seek more information from our supporting websites.

The Faraway Villa a beautiful Koh Samui wedding venue
The Faraway Villa is used as a private venue exclusively for our Faraway Weddings’ experiences. It is Koh Samui’s only dedicated wedding venue and sits on the beautiful Lipa Noi beach. This peaceful beach enjoys spectacular sunsets, and is situated on the west coast of the island away from the hustle and bustle of the busier east and north coast areasm making it the ideal choice Thailand Beach Weddings.
The overall concept of the Faraway Villa is to provide a stunning outdoor venue for a perfect beach wedding, with excellent back-up options available in times of bad weather. The Faraway Villa is a day venue with no overnight accommodation. This allows you and your guests to stay anywhere on the island that suits your personal requirements, and your budget.

How it works
As a very basic description, the following sets out the process of a Faraway Wedding Experience.
Once a Koh Samui Wedding Package is chosen, and all questions answered, the bride and groom pay a 10,000 baht deposit to secure the date and the services of Faraway Weddings (if the venue chosen is Pawanthorn Villas then a further deposit will be required to secure the venue).
At this stage you will be introduced to your own personal wedding planner and also given access to our unique online wedding tools.
Six months before the wedding day you will be invoiced for 50% of the chosen wedding package price, this does not include any additional options.
One month before the wedding you will be invoiced for 50% of overall outstanding wedding balance.
Through the online tools (see more below), and regular email communication with your planner, all of the details, large and small, are collected and eventually brought together to form a wedding which is totally unique to you.
When you arrive on the island you will have a wedding pre-meeting with your planner to confirm the details and pay the outstanding balance. This is usually two to three days before the wedding.
Legal and symbolic weddings
Whether to make the Thai wedding legal or not is purely a personal decision. The format and presentation of the actual ceremony remain the same either way.
We offer a legalization service which does ensure that Koh Samui weddings are recognized in your home countries as well as in Thailand.
Once your deposit is received and you have been introduced to your wedding planner, you will be given a username and password which allows access to your own section of our website. From here you will be able to browse through lots of photos and options in terms of flowers, set-ups, hair styles, entertainment options etc. This is where the excitement builds as you build a scrapbook of ideas and images and start to make selections to make your wedding extremely personal to you.
For weddings at Pawanthorn Villas we will take care of all accommodation bookings.
In relation to the Faraway Villa you and your guests are free to stay in whatever area of the island you like best and in a resort which suits your individual budgets. You are free to book your accommodation by any means available to you. We do have a reservations manager who is responsible for assisting you with finding appropriate accommodation and securing bookings for you. This can be a help especially when trying to obtain group bookings so the majority of your guests can be together. Firstly we can usually negotiate special rates for group bookings which can be better than rates found elsewhere. And secondly, our reservations manager can take all of the pressure off the bride and groom as each guest can email and pay for their accommodation directly to us. You do not have to worry about money collection and deadline dates etc, it is all taken care of as part of our wedding planning service.
The National Wedding Show UK
Faraway Weddings started exhibiting at the National Wedding Show in the United Kingdom in 2009 and have exhibited every year since then promoting Thailand beach weddings and specifically Koh Samui weddings to a wider audience. The show is spread over two weekends with three exhibition days each at Earls Court in London and the NEC in Birmingham.
The primary reason for exhibiting at the show is that we are able to make appointments with clients who have already booked their weddings online or with those who have been in contact but would like to meet with us before committing to a booking. This may only directly benefit our UK clients but it also provides a sense of security and peace of mind that we are a real company, with real people and not just an internet presence.
As a supporting service to our Koh Samui weddings planning and organization, Faraway Weddings now also arranges Faraway Honeymoon Experiences. Working with a selected number of resorts on Koh Samui and surrounding islands, we can now offer some very special and exclusive honeymoon options, not just for our wedding couples, but also for anybody who is planning on Koh Samui as a honeymoon destination.
