Early morning departure from the hotel around 06:00 am to be transferred by a deluxe car to a beautiful northern thai style teak wooden house and restaurant, surrounded by a nice, relaxing garden with old trees. The house is beautifully decorated in traditional Lanna style, adorned with scented flowers at every corner of the house, keeping the authentic touch and feel of Northern Lanna wedding ceremony. Upon arrival, you’ll prepare for the “Lanna” Thai traditional wedding.
Regardless of who you’re marrying you can take part in this ceremony. You will be both dressed in “Lanna” wedding costumes, followed by the morning wedding ceremony with the parade of trays of gifts and flowers. One of you will proceed down the aisle but of course this can be customised if you wish. Then you will get your soul (aka ‘Kwan’ in Thai) enlightened in order to establish your happy marriage life. Continue the private blessing ceremony by the head monk. While the sweet scent of incense fills the air, the monk will bless you with water and tie a symbolically 'binding' string around your wrists. End the ceremony by planting a love tree before returning to your hotel.
After the ceremony, enjoy your “Khao Soy” lunch at the house. Khao Soy is curry noodles from its street food status to its rightful place as the signature dish of northern Thai cuisine. Each meal is served in specially designed ‘Khao Soy’ sets, consisting of 8 small ceramic condiment dishes, laid around a large ‘Khao Soy’ bowl and set on an artist’s palette.
In the afternoon, you are free to relax at the hotel and enjoy the hotel facilities.
