150th Couple to Wed at Laguna Phuket's Chapel-on-the-Lagoon
Laguna Phuket’s Chapel-on-the-Lagoon will have its 150th wedding on Saturday 19 October 2007. The bridal couple, Isabelle Greaux and Philippe Erb, are French nationals currently living in Phuket. The Chapel-on-the-Lagoon, opened in 2005, caters exclusively for Laguna Phuket guests and has been continuously growing in its popularity, with a steady increase of wedding bookings each month. October 2007 alone has witnessed a record number of 18 weddings with November showing signs to be even busier with 14 weddings already confirmed.
Isabelle and Philippe arrived in Phuket from St. Barts about a year ago, staying at the Laguna Townhomes complex, which consists of three-bedroom properties developed by Laguna Phuket. In fact, it was in that very townhome that Phillippe proposed to Isabelle. Living within such close proximity and having witnessed firsthand the beauty of the Chapel-on-the-Lagoon, they decided that this is the perfect venue to affirm their wedding vows.
The Chapel-on-the-Lagoon, Thailand’s only resort-based wedding chapel, serenely floats on stilts above the resort’s tropical waterway. The glass-walled chapel offers stunning panoramic views of the sparkling seaside lagoon, idyllically situated within the luxurious Laguna Phuket resort. As a special touch, brides and grooms can access the chapel by private vessel, making the arrival and departure even more romantic. Centrally located within the resort, this non-denominational chapel is only minutes away from the six deluxe Laguna Phuket hotels, comfortably accommodating up to 50 people.
Isabelle and Philippe’s wedding will be an intimate gathering of family and friends. A lunch reception will be held at the Dusit Laguna Resort after their Chapel ceremony. Both Isabelle and Philippe have selected their wedding attires from the vast array of wedding gowns and tuxedos available from Laguna Phuket’s Wedding Salon. They also entrusted all arrangements of the special day to the Chapel’s dedicated of wedding team, whose outstanding services have been beyond their expectations. The couple have also enjoyed the Laguna lifestyle so much that they are now proud owners of a Laguna Village Villa, a two-storey, two-bedroom property within the new Laguna Village development, to be their home in Phuket.
