Here's a quick run-down of Buddhist wedding traditions.

Under the Buddhist faith, marriage is not regarded as a holy ceremony but centred on the notion that there is respect in the partnership.

A Buddhist ceremony is spiritual in nature and occurs in a register office or a Buddhist temple.

The bride customarily wears a dress of modest nature and the groom wears a suit. Ceremony attendees should make sure their shoes are removed before entering the shrine room.

During the ceremony, monks will chant in the Pali language. Some couples opt for a blessing after the ceremony.
