Kyle & Taylor | Inle Lake Buddhist Wedding Nyaungshwe

Buddist Wedding on Spellbinding Inle Lake in Myanmar

Kyle & Taylor’s wonderful Buddhist ceremony elopement on Inle Lake, Nyaungshwe Township of Taunggyi District of Shan State, one of the most beautiful destinations in Myanmar.
The Inle Lake region is one of Myanmar’s most beautiful destinations. A vast, serene lake fringed by marshes and floating gardens, where stilt-house villages and Buddhist temples rise above the water, and Intha fisherfolk propel their boats along via their unique technique of leg-rowing. Surrounding the lake are hills that are home to myriad minorities: Shan, Pa-O, Taung Yo, Danu, Kayah, and Danaw, who descend from their villages for markets that hopscotch around the towns of the region.
From the Inle Princess resort, we took the boat to the floating village of Ywama where Nga PheKyaung Monastery is located. After playing some fun door games the couple was allowed inside where their Buddhist ceremony was performed. After feeding the monks we took the boats around the lake before heading back to Nyaungshwe. Wow, what a wedding!

Myanmar, also known as Burma, is a country located in Southeast Asia that is renowned for its breathtaking natural scenery and rich cultural heritage. From the rolling hills and verdant forests of the Shan State to the pristine beaches of Ngapali and the ancient ruins of Bagan, Myanmar offers visitors a wealth of stunning sights to behold.
But Inle Lake is just one small part of the natural beauty that Myanmar has to offer. The country is also home to the towering peaks of the Himalayas, the lush rainforests of the Tanintharyi Region, and the crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea. Visitors can explore pristine beaches, trek through rugged terrain, and discover hidden waterfalls and caves.
Beyond its natural wonders, Myanmar is also steeped in history and culture. The country has a rich and diverse heritage that spans thousands of years, with ancient temples, pagodas, and ruins scattered throughout the landscape. Some of the most famous historical sites in Myanmar include the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, the temples of Bagan, and the Mandalay Palace.

Myanmar Photographer

After their Inle Lake wedding, I took the opportunity to travel around the country, with photos from Yangon, Mandalay, Hpa-An, Kalaw, Mergui, Bagan, Kawthaung, and Mawlamyine.
Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar, is a bustling city that offers a mix of modern amenities and historical landmarks. One of the most famous attractions in Yangon is the Shwedagon Pagoda, a towering golden temple that is considered to be one of the most sacred sites in Myanmar.
Mandalay is another city that is steeped in history and culture, with numerous ancient temples and pagodas to explore. The Mandalay Palace and the nearby U Bein Bridge are two of the most popular tourist destinations in the area.
Hpa-An is a picturesque town that is located in the Karen State, known for its stunning limestone cliffs and caves. The nearby Mount Zwegabin offers a challenging hike with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.
Kalaw is a charming hill station that is surrounded by rolling hills and tea plantations. The town is a popular starting point for trekking to Inle Lake and is also home to a vibrant market and numerous pagodas.
Mergui, located in the southernmost part of Myanmar, is an area that is largely untouched by tourism. The archipelago boasts pristine beaches, clear waters, and abundant marine life, making it an ideal destination for diving and snorkeling.
Bagan is perhaps the most famous destination in Myanmar, known for its thousands of ancient temples and pagodas that are spread across the plains. A hot air balloon ride over Bagan at sunrise is a popular way to take in the breathtaking views.
Kawthaung, located on the southernmost tip of Myanmar, is a small town that is often used as a starting point for island hopping in the nearby Andaman Sea. The area is known for its stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters.
Mawlamyine, the capital of the Mon State, is a charming town that is located on the banks of the Salween River. The town is known for its colonial architecture, colorful markets, and numerous temples and pagodas.
