Wedding ceremonies in Thailand are usually purely symbolic and non-legal. A simple way to get married is to have the ceremony in Koh Samui and the official marriage at your hometown, as there is a lot of paperwork included, which will take much time and effort.
If you choose otherwise, we can arrange to assist you in legalizing your marriage here in Thailand. We will recommend a dependable representative in Bangkok that will make all the arrangements for a Legal Marriage Registration. You will be advised of the documentation that is required, depending on your country of origin under separate cover.
