Celebrating Culture!

Weddings are beautiful celebrations that bring friends and family together to commemorate the magical bond between two people. And what better place to celebrate this union than on our stunning island, where diverse cultures seamlessly blend to create unforgettable experiences. With Weddings On Samui we never fail to leave out the minor details of your personal culture whilst ensuring you get that Island feel.

During June at one of our favourite Villas Koh Koon Weddings on Samui are celebrating an incredibly cultural wedding, with the groom being Indian and the bride Chinese, and them both being Christians whilst having a traditional Haldi ceremony.

Haldi ceremonies are to cleanse and purify the couple’s bodies before entering holy matrimony with one another. This beautiful ceremony is to symbolise a happy beginning of a new life together, Haldi is supposed to safeguard the couple from all negative omens that may harm them before the wedding.

It is a beautiful ritual to perform that is associated with new beginnings, peace and happiness for the gorgeous couple; which is just what Weddings on Samui is all about. Different cultures come together to build a bond so strong and to only welcome positive energy into their lives.

Turmeric is a big part of Haldi ceremonies as it is considered to be a cleanser both symbolically and literally as this ceremony cleanses the couple welcoming them into the next chapter of their lives.

Samui is renowned for its warm hospitality and its capability to welcome everyone from around the world.
