A wedding ceremony that takes place in a deserted and polluted river has been banned in the Thai capital, but a few hundred people gathered in the city’s main square for a small, informal ceremony that took place in the river.
Bengali brides, gals and bridesmaids were seen in a sea of blue and white gowns, as well as white and purple wedding rings.
The ceremony, held in a dimly lit area in the square, was a tribute to the flood victims, and was also seen as a way to mark the end of a month of flooding.
Some of the brides were dressed in the traditional yellow dress and white and pink gowns that are a popular theme among tourists.
One bride wore a purple, red and blue floral gown.
Another was seen wearing a red, white and blue gown with gold appliqués.
The groom’s father was seen walking past the ceremony, while his wife and other relatives followed behind.
The wedding was held to mark a year since floods swept through the region.
