Day 1

Bangkok

On arrival in Bangkok our guide will meet you at Suvarnabhumi Airport and take you to your hotel by a limousine car. You will have some time to relax and enjoy your beautiful hotel including its spa.

We can offer a wide choice of hotels in Bangkok; however, for our perfect honeymoon we have chosen the Peninsula Hotel (Grand Deluxe Room) due to its riverside location, stylish décor, warm welcome for everyone and romantic views.

After some time to yourself your evening begins with a drive through Bangkok’s old quarters that delivers sights of an illuminated Grand Palace, the Royal Ground, temples and the lit-up Ratchadamnoen Avenue. A lavish Thai dinner and cocktails against the stunning backdrop of the Rattanakosin skyline at “The Deck” riverside restaurant will keep your night pleasurable. Then stroll along the Flower Market to see the myriad varieties of exotic orchids and sweet smelling flowers. The buzz in this market is best experienced at night during which busy vendors load their wares up and down their mopeds.

The house is beautifully decorated in traditional Lanna style, adorned with scented flowers at every corner of the house, keeping the authentic touch and feel of Northern Lanna wedding ceremony. Upon arrival, you’ll prepare for the “Lanna” Thai traditional wedding.

Regardless of who you’re marrying you can take part in this ceremony. You will be both dressed in “Lanna” wedding costumes, followed by the morning wedding ceremony with the parade of trays of gifts and flowers. One of you will proceed down the aisle but of course this can be customised if you wish. Then you will get your soul (aka ‘Kwan’ in Thai) enlightened in order to establish your happy marriage life. Continue the private blessing ceremony by the head monk. While the sweet scent of incense fills the air, the monk will bless you with water and tie a symbolically 'binding' string around your wrists. End the ceremony by planting a love tree before returning to your hotel.

After the ceremony, enjoy your “Khao Soy” lunch at the house. Khao Soy is curry noodles from its street food status to its rightful place as the signature dish of northern Thai cuisine. Each meal is served in specially designed ‘Khao Soy’ sets, consisting of 8 small ceramic condiment dishes, laid around a large ‘Khao Soy’ bowl and set on an artist’s palette.

In the afternoon, you are free to relax at the hotel and enjoy the hotel facilities.
