Here are our 5 favourite places to say "I do" with the sand between your toes, wind in your hair and the ocean waves adding to your wedding march. 

We've brought you places for the dreamiest garden weddings and venues for breathtaking sky weddings; we weren't going to leave out where you can say "I do" with the sand between your toes, wind in your hair and the ocean waves adding to your wedding march. 

With Malaysia being peppered with so many beautiful islands, it wasn't hard at all to find a paradise like that. Here are the 5 that most caught our eyes. 

The Andaman, Langkawi


Should you choose to exchange your vows at The Andaman, the entire private Datai Bay is yours to use, complete with its glistening turquoise waters on one side and lush verdant rainforest on the other. It'll be hard to find a more ideal setting  especially when the sun starts setting over the horizon  as you exchange your first kiss as husband and wife. 

Lone Pine Hotel, Penang

Yes, Batu Feringghi is infamous for being a touristy area but there is still a quiet slice of heaven along its stretch for the perfect beach wedding at Lone Pine Hotel. Centuries-old casuarina trees set a majestic ambience over the sand and sea that melt into sprawling fields of green here  so serenity and privacy will not be missing from your special day.

Tanjong Jara, Terengganu

 If it's a cultural wedding with the full ceremonial traditions you're looking for, you'll find it all at Tanjong Jara that will go out of its way to present you an authentic traditional Malay wedding, bunga manggar and beating of the kompang included. Its lush tropical grounds will also set the perfectly dreamy stage for a magical wedding reception for your guests.

Cove 55, Sarawak

Old and new come together seamlessly at Cove 55, with white minimalist decor setting the modern pace of the place, coupled with Iban traditional accents. If its surrounding lush rainforest greenery and calm beaches are still not tempting enough, maybe the mystical Mount Santubong standing might and tall in the background will do the trick.  

Tanjung Aru Resort, Sabah

The Shangri-La has never disappointed and neither does this Tanjung Aru outpost in Sabah. Award-winning landscaped gardens set the heart racing before you fall completely in love with the place at the sight of its pristine white-sand beaches looking out far and wide into the South China Sea.  A little bird told us that the sunset here is one of the most spectacular in the country as well.
