Rich Traditions

Seeing this wedding makes me think of all the beautiful temples that we saw in Thailand. This is a close-up of one of the temples' intricate inlays.

I am so in love with Bhutan's Royal Wedding that happened yesterday. King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck married his bride, Jetsun Pema, in a beautiful ancient Buddhist ceremony. I love all of the rich vibrant colors and the traditional outfits. It was such a feast for the eyes. While reading about the wedding, it was also really interesting to learn more about this little Himalayan nation and their charming King :)

I couldn't resist adding these photos. Don't they look amazing? Like they just walked out of a fairy tale. I wish them much love and happiness. It's so great to be able to see two very different but equally beautiful royal weddings this year ♥


  1. Jetsun is truly beautiful :) You are so right about the comparisons between the two weddings, it is v. interesting :) <3
