Where do we start apart from recommending this amazing wedding planning company to anyone in a heart beat!!!!

This has been an amazing year for us getting married and Angela at wedding destination and her team have made all our wildest dreams come true! Our wedding was breathtaking and the standard was mind blowing! Angela had thought of everything down to the smallest detail!

The first phone call I had with her she made me feel comfortable, safe and excited because a wedding in scary let alone it being overseas! Any question/problem/ enquiry big or small Angela promptly got back to me with a solution and other options! Nothing was a problem! They have incredible contacts and the highest quality recommendations! With weddings there comes a lot of back and forth and decision making but Angela stayed positive and enthusiastic!

The travel team (Chryssa) at Wedding Destinations were also amazing.....organising and speaking with all my guests finding them the best rates for flights and hotel etc!

The list goes on for the things they organised for us ....boat trips,hens and bucks!!! Let's just say they went ABOVE AND BEYOND and created a day that is permanently etched in our brains!

THANKYOU Angela and all the team at Wedding Destinations! Love Troy and Han + bump xxxx


Hi Sharne,

Just wanted to say thank you so very very much for organising our wedding, we had the most amazing day and everything went perfect. I dont know what I would have done without you we are so very grateful! The resort and staff were so amazing. The only negative we encountered was an extra $3500 drink bill at the end of the night 🙁 I think our guests had way too much of a good time!!!

Stacey & Brendan Mowlem 

We would like say a special thank you to ‘Wedding Destinations’ and the Le Meriden Beach Resort Phuket for the most amazing wedding day we could have ever imagined. Thanks to Angela for all her hard work, everything fell into place and all run smoothly through the whole day.

The ceremony and reception were more than we could have hoped for. The decorations and set up were amazing for both the ceremony and reception, with ice sculptures & Sawandee the baby elephant who escorted me (Bride) down the isle.

The Le Meridien Beach Resort was the perfect place for our perfect day. We would defiantly recommend other couples wanted to get married abroad to consider Le Meridien Beach Resort, Phuket.

Taryn & Jarrad Phillips 

To Karan & the Wedding Destinations team. Thank you so much for all your help in organising our wedding and amazing trip. The day turned out beautifully, the resort was amazing and we had a blast discovering the wonders of Thailand. Thanks again for everything, we couldn't have asked for better. And the flowers when we arrived home brightened the place up beautifully. Love Catherine & Scott.

I would recommend the Bandara Resort & Spa in Koh Samui, Thailand to anyone considering a destination wedding. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and they couldnt do enough for us or our family and friends. The atmosphere was so relaxed and our wedding was everything we imagined.

Karan at Wedding Destinations was so helpful and organised everything for our special day. Whenever I had some more questions she was always quick to respond and find out the information I needed. Thankyou!

Melanie & Ryan Offer 

Hi Sharne!

I just wanted to take the time and say a massive thank you to you and the team at Wedding Destinations! We had a wonderful wedding, everything was just perfect, we couldn't of asked for anymore and we wouldn't change a single second.

The staff at the Bandara, especially our wedding co-ordinator, GeGe, were all amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and GeGe made everything seamless.

The flowers, the set up, the food, the staff, the venue were everything we hoped and more. Our guests had a wonderful time and Paul and I had the wedding we had been dreaming off.

Thank you so much for all your advice, help and prompting to get us organised to make this happen, we couldn't have done it without you and we appreciate all your hard work and patience.

We would highly recommend your services to anyone planning a destination wedding and would definitely recommend the Bandara for the perfect venue, It was all just wonderful so thank you.

All our gratitude,

We had in February 2014 our wedding at the Le Meridien Koh Samui. In total we were 45 guests. Most of the guests stayed at the hotel. Our guests very impressed by the hotel and the service they experienced as our wedding guests.The wedding was fantastic and the result of the great co-operation between Luke, the F&B manager of the Le Meridien, and us. Luke is very detailed oriented without losing the big picture why he is able to put focus on the right details in order to ensure the best big picture outcome.

We are very pleased and thankful regarding Luke's support. In that context we also want to thank the GM Tina for her great support and offer they put together for us. With the help of Tina and Luke the wedding went very well and was an unforgettable event for us and our guests. The location, the food and the proposed shows were spot on. The hotel employees were very friendly and supportive lead by Tina and Luke. Another great advantage of the hotel is its location. The bay is more quiet and beautiful especially with the pier.

The unique setting makes a wedding a unique experience which you want to have for your wedding. All in all we were overwhelmed. Many thanks Le Meridien Koh Samui, Tina, Luke and the whole team. You made our wedding a unforgettable event...... Many thanks.


We stayed at YL Residence for 4 days and 3 nights for our wedding with 18 guests (totaling 20), and it will sit at the top of the tree for our best hotel experience so far. The whole team deliver first class, personalized service in the lap of luxury, and we wanted for nothing.

There are 10 rooms, 4 large and 6 studio size. All are immaculately clean, as is all the amenities such as the games room, large dining area and the pool house. The master bedroom (the owner's residence) is stunning in size, layout and decor. The main bedroom is adjoined to the lounge/kitchen area with all amenities one would desire. 

Reuben (Head Chef) and his team prepare magnificent meals to request, and the three group dinners they prepared were of the highest standard. All the service staff were dedicated to ourselves and all our guests every need. Even those guests staying outside the YL Residence were welcomed with equal service and attention. Early check-ins were allowed (and encouraged), and late checkouts were organized to suit flights.

This is a very special and private hotel at the quiet end of Koh Samui, with a sense of absolute relaxation and luxury. Whether it is for a small business group, or a party with friends, or a specialized holiday, we'd recommend YL Residence to be one of the best hotels you will experience.

When I first contacted Wedding Destinations after finding them in a bridal magazine, I had no idea what to expect. I certainly didn't know then that these wonderful people would become so much more to me than just wedding planners. I was so well looked after and treated so individually by Karan and Annika and I like to think that I have friends in them now as they do in me. Their professionalism has played such a massive hand in bringing our unforgettable wedding day together. But it's their ability to talk to me relaxed, after hours, as friends and as women who fully understand my pressures and concerns that will stay with me forever. These gorgeous ladies were on top of their game the whole time and I never once felt as though I were simply one out of a bunch of brides. I know how busy they were with other brides but I always felt like a priority. Their liasing with my coordinator in Koh Samui was magnificent and was shown in the beautiful little details that were brought to life perfectly on the day. I would very highly recommend that all future bridal couples looking to begin their life together overseas look no further than Wedding Destinations. Our deepest and most sincere thanks to you for putting your hearts into us. You will always be in ours. Xxx
