We (a German couple, 24/32) didn’t want to have a normal wedding and since we have traveled a lot, we were looking for a place to marry abroad. To do that in Thailand was our initial thought, but we didn’t want to get married down by the beaches. We`ve been to Chiang Mai before and really liked it there. After some online research we came to thailandweddings.com. A few emails later everything was booked. We went for the Deluxe Buddhism package. The paperwork and all the organisation with the embassy in BKK in advance was very professional and smooth. The contact with Jit was very nice and we were looking forward to our wedding day.
Arrived in CM, Jit took care of everything. At our wedding day we were picked up by Jit very early in the morning to go to a local food market, buying food and flowers, that we prepared and gave to the monks to receive their blessing – it was wonderful. After a short rest back at our hotel, we got dressed a Jits place. The costumes were great. With our family we went to the register office to sign our marriage. Afterwards we drove to temple outside CM where we had like an audience with a monk, which was very inspirational and emotional. Some buddhism ceremonies like releasing birds to the sky and fishes to a lake took place there. Then we drove to the wedding house which is a place like heaven. Surrounded by jungle and hills in a wonderful garden with beautiful flowers. The traditionell Lanna ceremony with people from the village was the last part of the wedding. The atmosphere, the food and everything else was just perfect!
We didn’t expect our wedding day to be the best day of our life but what Jit and her team made for us on that day was way beyond our expectations. Thank you!
