Traditional ceremonies
Retreat: Amanpuri
Thailand > Puket

A traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony is performed by up to five monks who garland the bride and groom with a string sai mongkon that is then entwined to symbolise the coming together of two individuals. The couple are then blessed with holy water. The wedding party may wish to elaborate on the blessing with traditional Thai music and dancers, a Thai feast, elephant rides or perhaps a cruise on one of Amanpuri’s fleet of luxury vessels.
