It could take you several years to plan for the important days of your life, such as a wedding. When it comes to the time, there might be some difficulties you’ll face, but no one could have predicted what happened to this couple. 

However, they showed us that nothing could dampen their spirits – even a heavy flood.


Heavy rains and floods in Narathiwat


Sanook announced on 2nd December 2019 that Narathiwat, a province in southern Thailand’s, was a flood-prone area, with over 20 sub-districts and 99 villages damaged from water. 

Even though they were faced with a flood, it didn’t stop the happy couple from celebrating their precious day with their friends and family.
