Comedienne ties the knot with MP

120614_17d

After an unexpected engagement in early May, comedienne Sam Polida married military police officer Svay Sisotha, nicknamed “Scorpion”, in lavish style on Tuesday.

The 38-year-old bride was wedded in a traditional ceremony at the groom’s house, saying she thought that hers was too small for such a big event.

Her family decided they did not need to adhere to the Khmer wedding rule that requires the ceremony to take place at the bride’s house.

Sam Polida, who has two children from her previous marriage, also decided to shorten the ceremony.

“We’re excited for our big day, because it is the last wedding in our lives,” she told the Post.

The 40-year old groom, also a divorcee, said: “I pity my bride because she has never experienced a warm family. She suffered in her previous marriage. I have to make sure that she is happy in my hands.”

He also proposed her with a diamond ring that apparently cost US$30,000.

Their evening wedding reception was arranged with 108 dining tables. About 1200 guests attended the festivities, including government officials and celebrities.
