It’s almost surreal where my job takes me to. More than 4000 Km from home, I found myself waking up at 5 AM in the morning, getting ready for a wedding in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The wedding day started with a blessing from the monks at Wat Suan Dok, it was the place where Asa’s mom got married as well. What caught my eye was the vibrant colours of the temple and its surroundings. Soon after the blessing, Asa & Muthu gave offerings to the monks as a part of the tradition.
The second part of the wedding was a beautiful western ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort, followed by a water ceremony, where people poured water into the hands of the bride and groom while giving them prayers and blessings.
