Sian & Ravi’s, Thai Buddhist Wedding, Koh Lanta, Thailand
Sian and Ravi had a romantic Thai Buddhist Wedding on the most auspicious day for lovers, Valentines Day 2014. They were married at the luxury Pimalai Resort, a secluded hideaway on the island of Koh Lanta. Priding ‘Peace, Serenity, Solitude’ as its most important attributes, Pimalai is the perfect setting for a custom made ‘Wedding for Two’, such as Ravi & Sian’s delightful Thai Buddhist Wedding.
The stylish couple, both from London, decided to get married in a traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony with only two people present. Ravi & Sian celebrated their union together as one, already on Honeymoon in Paradise. Even though they had opted to come away in a romantic fairy tale elopement, their family and friends were still able to view the wedding via Skype.
Weddings for two people are becoming more popular nowadays, it’s becoming a recognisable trend that couples get married on their own. Maybe it’s the escape. Maybe it’s the simplicity. I’ve certainly found them to be intimate and romantic occasions.
Five monks, a lucky Thai number, sat on a raised dais for the wedding chants and ceremony, recited in Ancient Pali. In what was an authentic ceremony, sacred string was woven around Ravi and Sian heads, then thread through the hands of the praying monks.
Under this spiritual connection with the Thai Buddhist monks, the bridal couple were able to receive the blessings of their Buddhist wedding in paradise.
Sian wore a beautiful beaded lace dress and Ravi was perfectly groomed in white and pink shirt, complimenting the delicate flowers of the bridal bouquet, and bringing a sense of style and class to this beautiful Thai Buddhist Wedding. There are romantic photos on the beach, my personal favorite is the sunset kiss. Sian in praying bride pose is another stunning shot!
