Cambodia is probably the country where I’ve seen the highest concentration of weddings. I even lost count of how many wedding celebrations, photoshoots, parades and rituals I’ve witnessed in the ten days I was there, I can recall at least two/three per day, if not more. Colorful, loud and cheerful, on the last days we were finally drawn into one and took part in the dances.
The morning we were leaving Battambang, we were lucky enough to stumble upon a morning wedding ritual where the groom is in charge of sourcing 36 different types of fruits and veggies that his guests carry in a parade and offer to the bride on the wedding day to wish the new couple wealth and prosperity.
Below are some pictures I managed to snap around the colorful and slow parade made of children, women, men and the elderly, all of them dressed up for the upcoming party and bringing something to the bride.
