A dreamy beach wedding complete with powdery, white sand and clear, blue waters would have crossed any bride-to-be's mind at least once. Exchanging your vows backdropped against a vast blue ocean brings new meaning to infinite and undying love.
Lucky for us, Asia is home to some of the most beautiful seasides and coupled with our warm weather and lush tropical greenery, makes our part of the world one of the most conducive places to host beach weddings. These resorts we've round up might not be as popular as Brazilian resorts with their famous beaches, but with them, saying 'I do' in a cave in Krabi or on a yacht that sails across South East Asia are some of your available options if getting married by the ocean is your ultimate dream.
At the Rayavadee, a cool, hushed and hallowed limestone cave called The Grotto will serve as the backdrop where you'll share your first kiss as husband and wife. Located on Phranang Beach, the view from inside the cave frames the blue waters of the ocean, the miles of serenity broken only occasionally by jungle-capped islands rising from the horizon. Naturally sculpted over hundreds of years by the Andaman sea, the spectacular cave houses up to 30 people, perfect for the small, intimate reception you've always envisioned for your big day.
