You are the one
Bride & Groom : Paz & Herman
Venue : Sofitel Phokheetra
The Thai wedding ceremony video that combined with pre wedding video in Krabi and the most amusing Thai ceremony we have ever seen. The ideal of Thai ceremony,you always think of a solemn and serious ceremony. But we think out of a box. Why don't you enjoy the wedding as it be? The guests who come to the wedding ceremony should be happy and have fun together. Why do you take it so serious? That's how Paz and Herman feel and want to have a happiest moment in their life.
That early morning session started with the monk or Buddhist ceremony. After that, Herman - a groom and their relatives, friends carried the gift trays in a long procession. Danced with a long drum band in tradition Thai style. The gift trays will give to Paz's parents. They will have many things that have good meaning for a newly wed couple such as sugar cane (sweet), banana tree(many children), vermicelli or small noodle (long life) etc. We called them " Kan Mak " or betel nut in a term of English . In the past, Thai people would invited the guests with betel nut.
Thai people still preserve the traditional way until today. The bride's family will welcome them with betel nut tray too. After welcoming the groom and their family, the big mission would start. Herman would come to pick Paz up from her room escorting by "Tao Kae" or a matchmaker. He would do everything to pass the gatekeepers who were the bridesmaids and Paz's relatives. Not only give the money envelopes to bribe them but also sing a song, speak some difficult Thai words for Paz such as " Yod Ya Yee " - the meaning of darling in Thai but we don't use this word anymore. It's an old word but it's funny. And " Chan Rak Thur Tee Rak " it means " I love you, honey ". After Herman proved himself and passed all the gates, he could enter into Paz's room and get her. The engagement or ring exchange would be the next ceremony and the water pouring would be the last.
The water pouring ceremony is a sacred ceremony. We will use the holy water that was blessing from the monks at a Buddhist ceremony. The parents or grandparents will put a holy rope on the bride and groom's head, anoint their forehead with holy power and then bless them with holy water from conch shell. Thai people adopt this tradition from Hindu. It's an impressive memory that the bride and groom will never forget.
As both of you enter the new chapter of your romantic journey, May you have hearts that are ready to love, accept and understand. Good luck and may you have a happy marriage.
