Day 2 began with a procession to the family home where the day’s ceremonies would take place. The groom and family lead the way followed by the rest of the wedding party.
Most guests arrived with offerings of food or drinks.
The groom awaits the arrival of the bride.
The bride arrives with her bridesmaids.
The couple then give thanks to their parents.
More prayers, more offerings, more changes of clothing. Pao, the bride, manages to quickly grab some food between events.
Indoors the ceremonies continue with blessings from monks, and then pieces of red thread are tied around their wrists.
Family members give gifts of money.
The official ceremony ends and the couple is married. Congratulations Suon and Pao and thank you so much for letting me be part of your wedding. It was such an amazing opportunity to photography the event.
