PRACHINBURI:-- An English businessman put down a five million baht dowry as he married his Thai boyfriend in a traditional ceremony in Prachinburi on Sunday.

Carl Eden, 35, and his sweetheart Chaiwararit Witaworn or Tony, 29, were married at the latter's home in the Meuang Kaw area of the north eastern town, reports Thairath.

Love blossomed for the happy couple on Facebook and after a Bangkok meeting they decided to tie the knot.

The ceremony had all the trappings of a traditional Thai wedding on Sunday morning with the dowry laid out for the fifty guests to admire. There was gold, cash, a car, house and land all coming to more than five million baht in value paid by the Englishman for his Thai partner's hand.

And in the evening 500 guests enjoyed a Chinese style feast at a local hotel.

Tony, an ex-factory employee, said: "We met on Facebook then Carl came to Bangkok. We talked continually for over a year and then decided to marry."

He spoke of the couple's joy at being able to marry and said that people of all ages and sexes should be able to get married and enjoy a happy life together without restrictions.

Tony added that they are planning to go to England where his new husband has a flower shop, convenience store and apartment rental business.

And as Carl posed with the in-laws he said: "I love you very much Tony. This is a great opportunity for us. And I am very happy to be here in Thailand and be with this family."

It was a Thai traditional wedding. I guess you could marry your pet buffalo if she was cute enough.
