Chiang Mai Weddings

If you’re considering a breathtaking destination wedding, consider Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand. It has a rich tapestry of traditional Buddhist temples nestled amid picturesque mountains. Chiang Mai also embraces the unique cultures and ancient customs of various hill tribes.

While lacking a coastline, Chiang Mai compensates with rivers, lakes, and inspiring mountain views.

I love photographing in Chaing Mai, and the city has a relaxing vibe. You can witness the spectacular Yi Peng festival if you’re lucky enough to have your Chaing Mai wedding in late November!

Yi Peng Festival Chiang Mai

Yi Peng Festival, the Lantern Festival, is a captivating and stunning annual celebration in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In the Thai lunar calendar, Thai traditions root this festival, which people celebrate on the full moon of the twelfth month.

The highlight of the Yi Peng Festival is the release of thousands of sky lanterns into the night sky. Craftsmen construct these “khom loi” lanterns using thin fabric stretched over a bamboo frame. A small candle heats the air inside the lantern. It rises and floats into the sky.

Seeing thousands of lanterns drifting into the night is a mesmerizing and magical atmosphere.

Chiang Mai Wedding Venues

Chiang Mai offers diverse wedding venues, each contributing to the city’s allure as a romantic destination. There is a range of options, from luxurious resorts to charming boutique hotels.

The Rachamankha Hotel in Chiang Mai is beautiful and located in the heart of the city’s old moated area. Its central location was a short stroll from the stunning Wat Phra Singh. One of the hotel’s most unique features is its peaceful and private atmosphere, which is rare in a city hotel.
