Elephant-back Wedding Ceremony in Surin

Surin, a Thai northeastern province best known as Thailand’s largest home for elephants, annually organises traditional wedding ceremony with marriage registration formalities taking place while the couples are on the elephants. Locals believe this will ensure good fortune and prosperity to all the participating couples. The event normally takes place for two days during the Valentine’s Day. But this year’s dates and details have yet to be announced at the time of writing. (This year, the event is cancelled.)
