MONTIEN HOUSE PARADISE WEDDINGS
Imagine you and your loved one, strolling hand in hand
down a powdery white beach gazing at each other as the crystal blue sea
gently laps against your feet. Petals and seashells adorn your path towards
the place you will exchange your eternal vows.
If you are planning to get married and wish to shy
away from large events at home involving months, if not years, of planning;
if you are already married and wish to crown your honeymoon with a special
memory; or if you wish to re-express your love for one another after years
of marriage, Montien House can assist you.
About Montien House Weddings
Because we realise that each wedding is incredibly personal, we make sure
that we tailor make each occasion to make it as unique as possible for
you. We will arrange all of the logistics for you such as catering, photography,
music, decoration, etc., and because of our attention to detail, you will
not have to worry about anything more than turning up on time!
In the Kingdom of Thailand, wedding ceremonies follow ancient and rich
religious and cultural traditions. Whether you are interested in a quiet
secular wedding, a Buddhist blessing ceremony or a Catholic exchange of
vows (there is a Catholic Church on Koh Samui, but not a Protestant one),
Montien House has the following packages to offer:
This ceremony is always held in the mornings. Monks will be invited from
a nearby temple to bless the happy couple. To start off the ceremony,
the couple will light candles and incense then kneel closely together
facing nine monks. The monks will then begin an ancient Sanskrit chant,
reciting their blessings upon the couple for around ten minutes, during
which time the couple should have their heads bowed and hands joined in
a Thai wai as a form of respect. . Blessed string will then be tied around
the wrists of the couple by the head abbot followed by fragrant holy water,
which will be lightly sprinkled upon the bowed heads of the couple. After
gifting the monks with items which will be prepared by Montien House,
the couple will receive one more blessing from the abbot who will also
pour holy water onto the joined hands of the couple before anointing the
couple's forehead with daubs of holy paste.
Traditionally, the couple is now joined.
The Catholic Church in Chaweng will be where all Catholic weddings are
held and the couple needs only bring a letter from their local priest
attesting to the fact that both parties are Catholic and are legally eligible
for marriage. The ordained - and English speaking! - priest will officiate
over the ceremony and once finished, the couple will return to celebrate
at Montien House.
This simple ceremony is designed to allow couples to create their own
wedding experience through the exchange of their own personal vows. With
the backdrop of the sea and sand, slipping a ring on your loved one's
finger and sealing the exchange with a lingering kiss, will make for a
truly memorable moment.
Please note: Because of the location of the special
Sunrise Suite, which is located adjacent to the pool and the beach spot
where your ceremony may be held, this allows us to section of an area
for your ceremony and is really the only spot to be staying when being
wed at Montien House. Other-wise, you may choose to stay at Montien House
and hold your ceremony at an alternate location.
- Professional Organiser
If you are concerned that you won't know what to do during the religious
ceremony, or not know what is going on, don't worry! We will provide
English speaking staff to help take you through the entire day. Our
staff will be helpful and informative, without being intrusive.
- Flowers and Decoration
Montien House can create a stunning array of tropical flowers and silken
decorations to make the day as special as possible for you. However,
if you have any particular decorational desires, please just tell us
and we will do our utmost to provide the setting of your dreams.
At night, after your moonlit meal, a spectacular fireworks display can
be organised on the water's edge which will light up the sky overhead.
- Hairdresser and Makeup
We can recommend both professional hairdresser and makeup artist to
make you beautiful for your special day.
The day before, or indeed during the day, of your wedding, Montien House
can take you to a spa on the island to receive body and soul pampering
by professionals and to make you both feel refreshed and beautiful for
your loved one.
We can provide a professional wedding photographer to capture your most
important moments and lingering memories. We realise how important it
is for you to have a record of your special day to take home to your
friends and family, so every part of the ceremony and everyone involved
- including the monks - will be more than happy to pose for photographs
A professional cameraman will also be able to create both video
and VCD format of your wedding.
- Traditional Dance and Music
If you wish for a truly authentic Thai experience, Montien House can
organise a Northern Dance troupe to perform some of the country's most
famous and endearing dances accompanied by traditional music
- Food and Beverage
Montien House's famous kitchen can create a truly delightful wedding
feast for you and your guests. We can either offer you a set menu or
you can request what you wish to have and we will try our best to provide
it. Our comprehensive wine cellar offers both old and new world wines
and we have a full bar.
- Traditional Clothes
If you would like to wear traditional Thai costumes to your wedding,
then we can either arrange for a tailor to come and take your measurements
and we can help to recommend a style, or we can organise to rent a traditional
costume for you. However, for both of these options, you will need to
arrive on the island at least two days before your wedding.
