The beaches on the South coast of Koh Samui were the perfect backdrop for a wedding that was nothing short of sensational! Kendell and Eoin tied the knot at the luxurious Ban Sairee resort, surrounded by the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
In the late afternoon, their ceremony took place on Ban Sairee’s lawns. Set beneath towering coconut trees, they had their private beach in the background with views across the ocean.
After a sunset photoshoot, it was time to party! The reception was an absolute feast for the senses. Mouth-watering Thai cuisine, flowing cocktails, and a DJ who knew how to get everyone on the Ban Sairee dance floor!

Ban Sairee is one of my favorite venues for a wedding anywhere in Thailand. Positioned on a beautiful secluded beach south of Koh Samui island, Ban Sairee has 3 acres of private beachfront luxury. Designed as an authentic Ayutthaya-style Thai house, Ban Sairee villas have natural surroundings.
Being a wedding photographer at Ban Sairee Koh Samui Thailand is a dream! The turquoise blue water, sandy beaches, and lush greenery are the perfect backdrop for any couple’s special day.
As soon as I step onto Koh Samui, I know I’m in for a wild ride!
Laem Sor Koh Samui
My favorite part of Koh Samui is the serene and secluded Laem Sor beach area, located in the southern part of the island. This unexplored gem offers a glimpse into the Koh Samui of old before it became a tourist hotspot. With its tranquil island-village atmosphere, Laem Sor is a perfect coastal retreat.
The area comprises a small coastal village with a few bays that offer secluded tropical beaches. Laem Sor has a unique ambiance that was once prevalent throughout Koh Samui. As well as Ban Sairee, there is the delightful Villa Kalyana, plus several newer but impressive villas along the coast.
Getting to Laem Sor is easy, with a 20-minute drive from Lamai Beach and a 35-minute drive from Chaweng Beach. Samui Airport is approximately an hour away. Ferries from Phuket to Koh Samui are also available, with a 30-minute trip from Nathon Pier.
Laem Sor Weddings
Laem Sor is perfect for Koh Samui weddings. Visitors can immerse themselves in the quiet tropical paradise without nightclubs or shopping.
Luxurious beachfront villas, a few beach bars, and fine dining establishments make Laem Sor perfect. The main attraction is Wat Laem Sor, which features a golden-looking Pagoda perched on the water’s edge at the headland of Laem Sor beach. You can also explore the nearby meditation forest and enjoy stunning views over to the neighboring islands of Koh Tan and Koh Matsum.
The snow-white stupa, Khao Chedi, is over 100 years old. It sits on top of a steep hill above Ban Khao Bay, surrounded by various statues of Buddha. The view over the bay, islands, and mainland beyond is a bonus.
From Kendell & Eoin
“Thank you so much for keeping us glued to our phones and laptops for the last 48 hours! We cannot put into words how happy we are with the photos. We were always so excited to see them but once we opened them we couldn’t believe just how good they actually were. Thank you! The photos from early in the day, the ceremony, the meal and everything is just perfect. Thank you so so so much again.”
