Whangarei Heads Wedding, Kauri Villas | Panha and Lance
Lance and Panha were married at Kauri Villas in Whangarei Heads. Panha is Cambodian, so they had a ceremony full of European and Cambodian traditions including musical performances, the releasing of doves, bubbles and the tying of knots of red string around the couple's hands.
As well as a new first first for me - hair cuts at a wedding! The traditional Cambodian ceremony is called Gaat Sah and it signifies new beginnings. The mums and dads go up and cut small (I'm guessing they could cut as much as they wanted...) amounts of hair off the couple.
We spent the afternoon driving around (the couple in a cool old car) to some local spots for beautiful photos with the bridal party and the gorgeous couple.
