A traditional Cambodian wedding is comprised of many ceremonies, music, meals, gifts, and guests lasting for three days and three nights. Cambodians choose the number three because of its relation to “three jewels” of Buddhism: the Buddha, the Sangha, and the Dhamma.
The bride and groom are attired in bright color silk costumes. Wedding in Cambodia has to follow a lot of ceremonies and it was a great honor to participate in a traditional cambodian wedding and tell through our pictures its story.
In the first day, we had to shoot the spouses in in middle of the Angkor Wat temple: it is an enormous Buddhist temple complex located in northern Cambodia. It was originally built in the first half of the 12th century as a Hindu temple. Spread across more than 400 acres, Angkor Wat is said to be the largest religious monument in the world.
