The small private ceremony, held in an ancient monastic fortress, presented a mix of Buddhist spirituality with Bhutan traditions.
The 31 year old king is immensely popular in his kingdom and is famously a fan of Elvis Presley as well as basketball.
His beautiful 21 year old bride, looked slightly nervous throughout the ceremony, but with the placing of an embroidered silk brocade crown on her head she was made Queen.
When the ceremony was complete, the king took time to tell a group of reporters of his happiness at the special occasion: “I have been waiting for quite some time to get married. But it doesn’t matter when you get married as long as it is to the right person. I am certain I am married to the right person.”
The bride is a member of a family whom the Bhutan Royals had well known for a long period of time. Friends have spoken of the genuine love between the couple, who had been living together for eight months previous to the wedding.
