A Thai Buddhist ceremony is an incredibly moving ritual that evokes an atmospheric feel of tranquility and gentleness on these beautiful wedding occasions. Considered to be one of the most open and warm religions, the Buddhist monks are happy to perform this traditional ceremony for any wedding couples choosing to be blessed by the Buddhist way.
Orange robed monks surrounded by incense and candles, are invited to perform the ceremony for the bride and groom. The hypnotic drumbeats of "Hae Khaan Maak" mark the beginning of the ceremony as a Thai folk parade commences, adorned with Thai dancers. Prayers are chanted in mesmerizing tones, as the blessings for love and a long blissful wedded life is bestowed upon the wedding couple, in this captivating ceremony.
Thai Buddhist Marriage Step (Buddhist Wedding Ceremony)
Bride & Groom take the front seats together. Monks arrive & take seat on the stage ( every body put the hands together for saluting to the monks when they are passing ). The couple light up the candles and incense sticks and show the respect to the The Triple Gem* by prostrate themselves before the image of Buddha and then take a seat in the front roll Buddhist five precepts are vowed by staffs. Monks chant prayers of health, happiness and prosperity for the wedding couples’ marriage.
Bride & groom will donate the food for the monks. Bride & groom will donate gifts to the monk. The couple pours water to the bowl in order to offer spiritual merit to the ancestor, relatives and human fellow both of being alive and passing away Monks shower the holy water to couple and guests for health & luck Religious ceremony finished, couple taken photo with the monks before leaving. The monks leave & depart to the temple, the couple & all guests offer alms to them when they are passing on the way back.
Symbolic marriage certificate signing is offered & rings exchanging, photo taken. The couple is on stage, bride seat on the left hand side and groom on the right hand side. Elaborate flower garlands and holy string will be offered to the couple by the Groom’s grandmother and powder is placed on the couple forehead. The Groom’s grandmother follow by the Bride’s parents pours the sacred water from the conch shell to the couple hands and blessing them (symbolize forever cool happiness of family life).
Parents of groom are invited to pour the sacred water then followed by the senior & guests blessing the couple the same way as the mother of bride did. The holy strings will be taken off by Bride’s grandfather & hand to the couple to keep it and bring back to their home.
The Buddhist views on marriage are very liberal and within the faith it is considered a personal decision and not a religious demand that couples get married.
Traditionally Buddhist weddings in Thailand take place in the early morning and combine a variety of colourful traditions and religious beliefs and blessings in and around the village home of the bride.
At Phuket Weddings and Events we have created that unique experience in a package whereby 5 monks are invited to chant prayers of health, prosperity and happiness while seated on a platform in the oldest temple on Phuket. Next to the monks is the temple altar furniture with the Buddha image on top and lotus flowers, incense sticks and candles below. The bride and groom kneel facing the chanting monks with their hands in the “wai” position. After the ceremony the monks leave and the bride and groom move on to the temple grounds for more photos. Many couples wish to continue their ceremony with a traditional water blessing which we can perform on a nearby beach or venue of their choosing. During the water blessing a holy string is placed around the bride and grooms heads forming a circle. Three powdered dots are placed on each of their foreheads and garlands are presented. The most senior elder from one of the couple’s families takes sacred water from a bowl with a conch shell and pours a little of it over the hands of the bride and groom while offering a blessing of good luck. Each of the guests follow in the same manner.
We can also arrange for the ceremony to be held in private villas or other venues.
