Weddings at Jim Thompson's House Bangkok

Getting Married in Bangkok

Located in central Bangkok on a quiet lane surrounded by beautiful gardens, Jim Thompson’s house is one of the most romantic venues in Bangkok to get married. The friendly in-house events team are on hand to give you the day you have always dreamed of, whether it be a traditional Thai blessing or tailoring a mix of Asian and western customs. If you are planning your wedding from a distance never fear, you are in good hands. Ideally it would be fantastic to come in and spend time with the team and they are warm, friendly and prepared to go the extra mile to make sure that both of you have a unique experience.

The Venue

The Ayara hall is situated on the second floor of the restaurant, with fantastic views of the house and the garden. With a separate bar area, there is room for up to 80 people depending on how you want the room set up. The hall is in keeping with the rest of the house – a traditional wooden room with shuttered windows and how you want it decorated is up to you. Flowers are included as part of the package and you can accessorise the bar area in a selection of Thai silk-covered cushions, including a peacock blue design or floral motif. Outside there is a private terrace that overlooks the canal. You can have some beautiful pictures in the gardens, and offer your guests a private tour of the house. One of the best things about getting married at Jim Thompson’s is the intimate and cosy atmosphere; there is a real soul to the place.

 

The Food

Whether you want a cocktail-style reception, a buffet or sit down meal there are plenty of options to pick from. Western canapés include quiche, prawn cocktail and chicken pie, with a range of cookies, fruit and cakes for those with a sweet tooth. If you are considering serving Thai food then the chef stations add a real buzz to any buffet, especially the Issan-inspired selection, which includes sticky rice, chicken, papaya salad and minced pork. If you would like a western-style tiered wedding cake then you will have to source it yourself, but there are plenty of bakeries in Bangkok that would be happy to help. Tea, coffee and Thai herbal juices including lemongrass are included in the price, but if you want to toast the day with a glass of champagne the team can arrange this for you too.

Thai Ceremony

There are many different steps and traditions that have historically been a part of a Thai wedding ceremony. Thai ceremonies will usually start early in the morning, the day picked by monks as being auspicious. If you are marrying someone of Buddhist faith they may invite monks, who will chant blessings and sanctify the water that will be used in the ceremony. The key part of the day is the water-pouring ceremony, in the past this was the step that officially meant the couple were husband and wife, although today you will also need a wedding certificate. The couple sit at two altars with their hands, palms together in the wai position, a headdress made of cotton connecting them. Each of the elder guests will use a conch shell to pour water over the groom and brides hands. Cost
