My wedding in Thailand...

Last year, I set off back to London with a plan.

To raise enough money to buy a house and marry my girlfriend in Thailand. This post goes into more detail about the best part of a year it took me to do it.

There are  couple of other posts about the house,the transfer of the title deed and and the whole registration process so if you've read them you know about that part of the plan.

This post is about the wedding itself. You can see the video here on the blog or on YouTube,

As with all my posts, if you click on the photos you can see them full size.

Nong Laai... he loved music and dancing.

Those of you who were at my wedding in Thailand may remember a guy who stayed right till the end, dancing and singing away to himself, smiling and laughing with everyone....small guy, dark skin, his name was Laai,(In Thai, when someone you regard as 'like a brother or sister' is younger than you, you pre-fix their name with the title 'Nong' hence, Nong Laai) he was from a country called Myanmar which we know as Burma, which has a border with Thailand about 10km away from my house at what is referred to as 'The Golden Triangle' as there is also a border with Laos PDR
