Say “I Do” at Thailand’s Most Scenic Destination
Serenaded by a lush tropical landscape, with limitless views of the peaks of the majestic Doi Suthep – milestone celebrations in Chiang Mai are not just meaningful but also spiritual. There are few things as symbolic of fertility and longevity as rice fields – and what better place for guests to make their vow of eternal love than the countryside retreat of Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai.
Mae Rim valley’s gorgeous weather and picturesque backdrop make for the perfect setting for guests who want a special, out-of-the-ordinary way to say their “I do,” while the Resort brings a luxurious vibe that makes each event a spectacle. “There’s no need to stand on ceremony here – feel the crisp mountain air, immerse in verdant paddies, and allow the magic of Thailand’s cultural capital to recreate that perfect destination wedding you have scripted,” says Anthony Gill, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai and Tented Camp Golden Triangle.
From the indoor Thai-styled Rachawadee Residence and the shimmering meadow fringed by the pond and paddies, to tropical gardens with a view of the Doi Suthep mountain range, there are many venue options to choose from at the Resort. Guests can even choose a combination of venues, bringing both sense of home-away-from-home and a rustic rural wedding, at once. “Guests can choose from our wedding themes,” shares Pimsupang Busapapong, Conference Services and Sales Manager. “We are more than happy to improvise and create a special affair, just the way you imagined it! Every detail is precious to us – from menu selection to décor and photography, we will make sure that your celebration is truly unforgettable."
Walking through the path among the rice paddies holding hands, a private ceremony with blessing awaits at the end of the trail. “The sun slowly turning down between the mountains, or the rice paddies harvested like the love of a couple, are all a gift of nature for those who are stepping into a new life together,” she adds. The traditional nine-monk blessing ceremony, led by a village elder, gives guests a true experience of a Thai wedding ritual, complete with wedding garlands and traditional attire amid a rural backdrop.
Into the Sunset
“Sometimes, all a wedding needs is two consenting people in love,” smiles Pimsupang. Guests can pledge their love under a floral wedding arch by the poolside as the sun sets across the horizon. “For this evening wedding, we'll create a perfect garden setting that includes floral decoration of your choice,” she adds. In hues of gold and green with sun flares all around, there’s no setting more magical than this one for a countryside ceremony.
Sustainability is the cornerstone of the experience at the Resort and this extends to the beautiful green celebration as well. “Our eco-friendly themed décor and sustainable menu will bring you closer to nature as you create unforgettable memories with loved ones in a magical tropical setting,” says Pimsupang. The Orchid Nursery is one such venue that is straight out of a storybook. “Skip the flowers for decorations when you’re surrounded by live orchid plants in every hue and colour, as well as tropical ferns and other exotic flora,” she says, adding, “Recreate a rainforest-like setting in the abundance of greenery and let the wedding banquet be lit up under a canopy of flowers - a fairy-tale waiting to unfold.”
