The Oriental Mandarin Dhara Devi is an amazing place for a wedding. Set in 60 acres in Chiang Mai, it's all spires, wood and ancient stone. It contains two full areas of rice paddy and has the gentlest morning alarm - a man on a white buffalo plays a flute whose notes float across the rice fields and into your sleeping ears.

Adam and Serena had an open-air wedding ceremony on the main terrace, followed by a traditional Thai tea ceremony. In the evening, Thai dancers entertained the wedding party between dinner courses.

Many thanks to Aidan for flying me over there to help with the photography. And congratulations to Adam and Serena and their families. Thanks to them also for the Flaming Lamborghini which topped the night off!
