I am also an Australian bride who got married in Thailand however i got married in Kata Noi.  I did look into getting a wedding planner but ended up negotiating with the hotel directly.  If the hotel offers wedding packages then they will have their own wedding planners and mine was fantastic! The Thai hospitality is outstanding and the day ran so smoothly.  I would suggest sending some emails to some hotels and see what your feeling is from their response, if they get back to you fast and are helpful then there is no need to hire someone else.  Go with you gut.  Have a fantastic wedding 🙂

@JMPacker:  we are having a destination wedding in phuket next year. We are havign it at a chapel at a resort, they have a wedding planner and so far I have been very happy with how it is going, a lot of emails back and forth.  It can be hard choosing things from photos but I am sure it will all come together.

@JMPacker:  There are a couple of Sydney based wedding planners that only plan weddings in Thailand. You could try googling them but from memory when we looked into a Thai wedding they were pretty pricey.

You also need to spend a few days in  Bangkok prior to the wedding to get your paperwork sorted for a legal marriage. just wanted to point that out as a lot of people miss that!

@JMPacker:  agree with j jaye there are some companies in aus. i talked with one which had a fee of $5000 but i ended up organising mine myself.

@j_jaye:  good point about the legal paperwork in bangkok. i have found a tour company in bangkok that will send an agent to go with you to arrange it all. they said it takes 1 full day but we are allowing 2 just in case.
