Interview: Ann from Rocky's Boutique Resort

A tropical wedding is a popular choice for many couples, with the beauty of Thailand making it one of the most romantic countries to choose for a wedding abroad. We asked wedding planner Ann what she likes best about organising weddings on Koh Samui.

How did you decide to become a wedding planner?
It wasn’t a planned career at all. I was recommended by an acquaintance who was working in hospitality. My first role was an assistant back in 2009. From there, I learned and grew so much and was promoted to wedding and events planner. The company used to arrange 120+ weddings a year. I remember doing back to back weddings. With Rocky’s, I continue to devote my time planning an important milestone. It never gets boring.

What's the best part about being a wedding planner?
May sound cliché but it’s the rewarding feeling after each wedding event. Knowing that myself and our team have been a part of something truly special. We made an unforgettable mark at someone else's life. Not many are blessed with the opportunity.

Which areas of Thailand do you enjoy organising weddings in, and why?
I am fortunate enough to be working in a destination that is easy to fall in love with. Koh Samui is one of the most sought after wedding destination in Thailand. And it boasts serene picture perfect beaches, coupled with a world renowned Thai hospitality. We do not just plan weddings; we (our entire Rocky’s family) makes them happen in a wonderful place.

What's the most unusual wedding you've organised?
It has to be the circus themed wedding for a very small group of 6 people. We had magicians, elephants (yes, there were 3 of them) and as if that's not enough entertainment, they had quirky musicians and fireworks to end their night. This was years ago and I have to say one of the best decisions we've made is to discontinue having animals for weddings.

What's the most popular type of wedding you organise?
Imagine getting married with your toes touching the sand, hearing the waves lapping and followed by a beautiful reception in our wooden room decorated with fresh flowers and gleaming fairy lights. Our secular beach ceremony is simply beautiful. It’s our most chosen ceremony style.

What advice would you give couples wanting to get married in Koh Samui?
You have chosen to get married in a beautiful location. Your day will go fast so be sure to savour each and every moment of it. Your wedding planner is here to guide you and they are genuinely committed to making your dreams come true. Give them your trust and let them do the magic.
