    Thai Wedding in Germany

    I wasn't sure were to Post this - it's a Trip Report but not in Thailand but has to do with Thailand, another Option would have been the "English Forum", anyway I choosed this Forum, Moderators feel free to move it if you want.

    As some might have noticed I was away for some weeks, at least one Member asked me about that by PM and encouraged me to tell something about the Trip with Photos

    We have been to Karlsruhe/Germany, a 7 hours drive from Berlin, where the younger sister of my wife married.

    On Friday 7th September 2012 was the Marriage at the Registration Office where I also functioned as Interpreter.

    Then on Sunday 8th September 2012 there was a big Wedding Party at a Restaurant with many Traditional Thai Wedding Ceremonies as well.

    There were 2 Hosts who led through the Evening - a Thai Woman in Thai and me in German and Thai.
    It was very much fun and an unforgettable experience as I had never done something similar before.

    As an Opening there was the Thai Wedding Ceremony "Rod Nam Sang" รดน้ำสังข์ - with a White Conch Shell (Shankha) you pour Water, which was blessed by Monks before, over the hands of the Bridal Couple.
    This Conch Shell is a very important ritual, religious Symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism as well - the Hindu God Vishnu, in Thai better known as "Phra Narai" พระนารายณ์ has four arms and in every hand he holds a Sacred Emblem thus this special Conch Shell.

    Your sister-in-law is also beautiful, just like your wife. Must run in the family.
    By the way, where is your photo? Or didn't I look closely? Thanks for posting these!
