Buddhist Wedding

Another one of my colleagues got married yesterday. Even though she is also a Buddhist, the wedding ceremony was performed differently. I was told last night that every 3 kilometers you travel, everything is slightly different. This includes the taste of the water, the language/accent, food preparations, and more.

In classic Indian fashion, I rode on a motorcycle to get to the wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ceremony is fairly short and consists of a monk praying and instructing the bride and groom to perform different rituals.

After the ceremony, everyone lines up to present their gifts and take a photo with the newly weds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Always nice when the whole office comes out to support you on your big day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

They look pretty happy.
