Phuket Wedding Planner Maria Kiesbye Scholtyssek

The island of Phuket in Thailand has been my home for over ten years now, and its where I live with my youngest daughter Alicia, and our two dogs.
For a few years now, I have been working as an event and wedding planner both on some of our beautiful beaches here on the island, but also in two gorgeous private villas.
I love to work with floral designs inspired by gardens, and combine them with Thai details that are personalized and tailored specifically to each couple I work with.
What I love most about my style of event and wedding planning, is the simplicity of it, and the joy it brings.


“Wedding exceeded our expectations!

We had our wedding at Bann Chang and we were blown away by the villa, the staff, and the attention that went into making our event perfect.

We worked with the wedding coordinator, Maria, in the months before the wedding. She did an amazing job of organizing everything and I loved her taste and all the ideas she proposed as well as the vendors she had suggested to us. We were blown away when we saw everything come together and we realized the effort and attention to detail that was put into making everything better than we could have imagined. Choosing a venue on the opposite side of the world was a little scary at first, but we feel so lucky to have found it and would highly recommend it to anyone considering having an event here.”

“I also utilized the help of the Villa’s event planner, Maria, who did an unbelievable job in transforming the space to make our “Havana nights” themed party come to life. Everything was set out so well, impressed all our guests and will be etched in our memories forever.”
