Luang Prabang, Laos, October 4, 2019 – It has been said that the true essence of romance is not about hearts and chocolates, but simply spending time with your partner in perfect peace and harmony, without any outside pressures or distractions. Nestled in the lush, jungle-clad hills of northern Laos, one resort is giving couples the chance to celebrate their love in a truly tranquil environment, with a series of exquisite wedding experiences.
Pullman Luang Prabang is set among 16 hectares of natural countryside, surrounded by paddy fields, rivers, and mountains, creating a unique setting for love to blossom. The beautiful UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Luang Prabang, Laos’ former royal capital, is just moments away.
Couples will be able to discover the allure of this enchanting destination at the resort’s Wedding Showcase, “Love Pulls Us Together”, which takes place on Saturday 5th October 2019, from 2 pm to 7 pm. This immersive afternoon event will allow brides-to-be, future grooms, and wedding organizers to learn all about Pullman Luang Prabang’s marital offerings, including a trio of packages that have been crafted to suit every size and type of ceremony.
After a welcome address from Denis Dupart, the resort’s general manager, the Wedding Showcase will treat guests to fashion shows displaying traditional Lao and international wedding dresses. This will be followed by Q&A sessions with professional planners and suppliers, a series of booths demonstrating different ceremonial set-ups, and lucky draw to win fantastic prizes. The event will conclude with a cocktail reception and food tasting session at the resort’s sunset rooftop. Pure bliss!
“There can be few more idyllic wedding venues than Pullman Luang Prabang. It is not only our stunning scenery that promises the perfect backdrop for ceremonies and photoshoots; it is our serene ambiance that sets us apart. Couples today do not simply want to repeat the same old romantic clichés; they are seeking bespoke and intimate experiences that reflect their own passion for the environment, and each other,” Mr. Dupart said.
“We look forward to introducing future brides and grooms to the wedding of their dreams. Luang Prabang is a destination which has a unique aura – a sense of calm that feels blissfully far removed from the outside world. And yet, this royal town is also easily accessible, making it easy for friends and family to share the big day. Together, we can design deeply personal matrimonial journeys that reflect the beauty and purity of northern Laos,” he added.
The Wedding Showcase will introduce guests to Pullman Luang Prabang’s collection of three elegant packages, which have been expertly curated to suit different budgets. Hosted in the 368-square meter Nam Khong Ballroom or outdoors amidst the tropical gardens, each package includes floral decorations and bouquets, free-flow soft drinks, a multi-tiered cake, guest book and a one-night stay for the newlyweds, including breakfast.
Additional options include afternoon tea for two, a Champagne tower, alcoholic beverage packages, after-parties, accommodation for family and guests, anniversary dinner vouchers and more. Naturally, every couple will be treated to creative catering, including cocktail receptions, evening buffets and set menus with a choice of authentic Lao or international cuisine.
A photo-shoot package has also been launched, allowing couples to capture their timeless wedding album amid a landscape of verdant gardens and peaceful ponds. This full-day package includes a series of indulgent amenities, including a bottle of sparkling wine or a 30-minute massage for two, a four-course dinner for two and more.
