We’ve only been here just over a week and already we’ve had the honour of being invited to a wedding. A indication of now incredibly warm and welcoming Cambodian people are! It was a typical Buddhist ceremony, and everything was really beautiful and colourful.What an absolutely stunning day. Wow!

Amazing dress number 2 – for the Chinese
part of the ceremony (we think there must have been
a Chinese link from the groom’s side).

Chris and his new best friend, a Lt Gen from the Cambodian army who, incredibly, studied for three months at Cranfield University about 5 miles from where we live in Bedford! It took Chris a fair while to explain to where the rank of Marine (Private) sits compared to Lt Gen. They settled on ‘just below’, which ranks as one of the biggest understatements I’ve heard for a while.

Outfit number 3, for the spiritual ceremony.

Treated like royalty. Which is so very typical of Cambodian hospitality.
Tammy is wearing a traditional outfit by the way.

Stunning outfit number 4 for the evening reception.
