While in Cambodia I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days photographing the wedding of Suon and Pao.

The groom’s sister worked at the Lotus Blanc Hotel where I was staying. One morning, as I returned to the hotel after shooting the dawn, Suon walked into the lobby in a wedding dress.

The staff explained that a local photographer would be taking some photos of  the bride and groom at the hotel, before they began the traditional khmer wedding celebrations that would last for two days. Knowing I was also a photographer they said they’d be quite happy if I’d like to tag along and take some pics. Hoorah.
