A Buddhist Wedding



What a lovely wedding we had yesterday!!! The wedding ceremony was held at shrine hall of the Chempaka Buddhist Lodge in Petaling Jaya. The bridal couple had the Chief Monk, Rev. Saranankara to do a blessing at this ceremony. It was such a happy occasion for the couples, their families and friends. Fortunately all the programmes went smoothly despite Murphy Law came into actions several times. It was indeed a blessed wedding.
My wish for the couple, Sim Keong & Phaik Loo, is may they always be blessed by the Triple Gems as they start their lives together as husband and wife!

I will be sharing more photos from the wedding in the next few days. Hope you would enjoy them!

Like Kala, I've never attended a Buddhist ceremony either, so this is so interesting to me. And you got right up there and got the shots, too! I like that in a photographer! Your shots are really wonderful and intimate. I learned a lot, too. Wedding customs are so interesting, and the occasion, no matter where, is always such a happy thing to see. Happiness to the lovely couple!

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
