Congratulations Geddis & Gai

Photo taken by Adam Butler
Well Tuesday was the wedding of the century on Koh Lanta, my business partner Gediminas (Geddi) was marrying his beautiful fiance Sukanya (Gai) in a traditional Thai buddhist Thai ceremony in Saladan in the morning and a more Western party in the evening.

As a Western woman, the idea of being ready for your wedding at 9am in the morning is terrifying, but Gai was busy getting her hair and make up done at 6am in the morning, so the Blue Planet Staff decided to give her a warm congratulations as they headed off for a days diving.

Geddis was presented to his bride behind a procession of Thai dancing girls and Thai drummers dancing through the streets of Saladan. As expected, Gai looked beautiful.

In the afternoon, Gai was carried to the reception at Koala Bar, by 4 burly Blue Planet Staff and presented to Geddis, where they exchanged rings and went through a traditional Lithuanian ceremony with their families.

Many, many congratulations to Geddis and Gai and we hope they have a very happy and very long marriage.

Many thanks to Koala Bar (Todd in particular) for his hard work, Wow for making the bride even more beautiful that she was, Adam, for some incredible photos, Lee for a great video and the whole Blue Planet Team for helping to make their day really special.

Man vs Women

Tonight sees 2 big parties happening on Koh Lanta, but you can only go to one. The men are all staggering to Ling Uan for Gediminas' Stag Party.

The women are planning a lovely evening at Cheeky Monkey to enjoy one of Gai's last nights of freedom!

Make sure you go to the right party, else you  could be in danger and help us see off Geddis and Gai in style.

We may all meet up later at Corner Bar....... should someone maybe warn this bar?
