Couples in search of nuptials with a difference need look no further: AHMS The Collection has announced it will introduce Full Moon Weddings at each of its four Thailand resorts and has begun accepting reservations.

Glad Moon Rising: Unique and exciting weddings by moonlight are now possible at AKARYN Samui, pictured, and other resorts along roads less travelled operated by AHMS The Collection.

The concept was pioneered by Aleenta Hua Hin-Pranburi last year, when couples were invited to tie the knot at midnight by moonlight – an initiative aimed at couples with a taste for the dark and mysterious side of life.

AHMS founder and managing director Anchalika Kijkanakorn, said the Aleenta Hua Hin initiative had been popular with adventurous couples. She was now looking forward to each of the collection’s four Thailand resorts in Greater Phuket, Koh Samui and Pranburi, near Hua Hin, putting their own unique stamp on the concept. 

Ms Kijkanakorn, who is also Chairman of Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), said the experience was in keeping with a trend towards ever more unique and buzz-worthy ways of getting married. 

“Brides and grooms are always looking for something unique, a way to stamp their wedding as their own,” she said. “AHMS Full Moon Weddings promise the ultimate bragging rights and a Big Day – or rather, Big Night – that the wedding party and all of your guests will never forget. 

“It will appeal to night owls, romantics and people who are unafraid to defy convention and break the mould. It’s the non-cookie-cutter take on the tropical beach wedding. 

“Let’s face it,” she added, “some of us just aren’t morning people.” 

*Marriage certificate and legal arrangements are not included and must be arranged directly by the client at the Embassy in Bangkok and any district office (where applicable)
