The Bumthang region of Bhutan is a religious heartland with lovely temples, monasteries and forested hills. The perfect place for a renewal of vows or a wedding ceremony. We start in the morning with the bride dressed in the finest traditional colourful Bhutanese outfit, waiting for the groom at the entrance of a traditional farmhouse. The groom dressed in Bhutanese costume will be ushered to the waiting bride by a group of singing women and men in a Chipdrel Ceremony, which is a traditional reception ceremony of Bhutan. Both the bride and groom will then join in the Merchang ceremony (offering to deities) and then proceed to the altar room/shrine of the farmhouse. The wedding/renewal of vows ceremony will begin with red-robed monks chanting, playing bells and six foot trumpets, followed by traditional snacks, such as yak-butter tea, desi (sweetened saffron rice), rice-fermented aara (liquor). The entire event ends by mid-day.
