Wedding Ceremony on Elephant Back
The Elephant has been a national animal for Thailand for ages, which is why this fascinating huge and gentle animal should be part of your wedding in Thailand. Indeed, this ceremony is the tradition of a local tribe called “Guay”.
This ceremony is held on 14 February at Elephant Village and features the khan maak procession with the groom riding on the pachyderm to pick up the bride. Then, they attend the bai sri su khwan ceremony before hosting the buffet for the lovely elephants and paying homage to local spirits. The highlight of this event is the marriage registration on elephant back and the big banquet for the couples.
