The bride and her side, with gifts from friends and family.
I arrived in Phnom Penh in time to observe a Cambodian wedding close-up. Colorful, shiny, filled with food and flashbulbs. The ceremony took place inside a carpeted, brightly lit room. Outside, under a lacy and colorful tent, hordes of guests ate throughout the whole day, with quick turnover per table.
Outside the eating tent.
Something like a speech.
A guest with sculptured hair, hitting said gong.
This woman putting 36 fruit and food items into a tray whilst dancing, followed by a singing man.
The musicians playing various Khmer instruments.
The groom, he looks so young.
Facing the spread.
Some kind of rice cake thing I wanted to tear open and devour.
Kissing the (hand of the) bride.
