Faraway Weddings - Meet the Team

Faraway Weddings has been successfully organising weddings since 2004 and during this period we have evolved and grown in to the company we are now.

Every single member of the Faraway Team has an important role to play in creating your perfect wedding day. The weddings we design are meticulously planned and each unique wedding is as important to us as the last. All of our staff strive to work hard and each person is professional, experienced and most importantly, friendly. This is very much a team effort and we are fortunate to share an almost family-like atmosphere both in the office and on the wedding day.

The experience, knowledge and considerable job satisfaction we gain from every wedding provides you with the confidence and peace of mind that everything will be right on the day, and hopefully our presence will also add to the overall enjoyment of the occasion. We're all there for you, to take care of everything and to help make your day a very special and memorable event.

All of the Faraway team benefit ongoing training and awareness in various areas. For example everyone has attended environmental seminars which have been designed to educate people about pollution and its effects. These courses help to motivate them to implement ways of reducing their impact on the environment.

All Faraway employees have also received training at Bangkok Samui Hospital in first aid and basic life support and everyone receives weekly English lessons.
