Wedding in mud

In Cambodia, weddings normally take place in the bride’s house or a restaurant, but where was this couple heading to?

Posted on a Cambodian page named Sophat Banteaymeanchey, the photo features a young couple. The bridegroom is holding his future wife’s arm to make sure she will not slip in the mud; and the bride lifts up her long white wedding dress from the ground, followed by a number of people, presumably guests and relatives.

Despite walking in mud, the couple are all smiles.

The photo attracted many Facebook users, almost 800 of whom hit “like” and more than 300 of whom shared it.

Most people are very supportive to the couple, and some wished them happiness.

“One life has only one [opportunity]. Marriage like this has happiness,” commented Da Nith. Another user, Nabie Smiley, simply wrote: “I wish you happiness.”

Other people questioned why only the groom wore shoes while the bride did not.

“The groom wears shoes to protect him from the mud, but the bride is a bit dirty,” Da Ren wrote in Khmer. SokEng added: “It looks happy, but if the bridegroom carried the bride in his arms, it would be happier.”
