Feb 14, 2015 – Pictures: Couples Married Inside Coffin As Buddhist Monks Conduct Wedding Ritual For Goodluck In Thailand

10 couples yesterday in Thailand got married inside a coffin.

The wedding ritual conducted by Buddhist monks allows couples to eliminate bad luck by saying their wedding vows inside a coffin .

Participants made offerings to the monks before taking their places side-by-side in the large pink coffin – floral bouquets held to their chests.

The monks then draped a large white sheet across them – representing their death – and performed chants usually reserved for funerals. The prayers ended with blessings for a new life.
