The traditional photo on arrival. LtoR: Rumnea, Vibol, Davy, me
For a very pleasant ending to the weekend, I enjoyed a wedding party in the company of Rumnea, with the Cambodian wedding season now firmly in full swing, at the home of contemporary dancer Yon Davy and her husband Vibol, this evening. 350 guests were invited to the celebration that took over the road in front of the family home, a block away from the Russian Market, with singers and a band blaring loudly into the night and the invited guests, many of them former dance students, eating and drinking their fill. I didn't realise until the end of the evening that Davy's mother had passed away just a couple of days before, hence a very brave decision for her and the family to go ahead with the ceremony and party.
Vibol and Davy circle the table laden with fruit, with attendants in tow
Time for a photo with Rumnea
Confetti, petals and foam spray greet the happy couple
If the dresses and skirts of the female singers get any shorter, they'll be above their heads
