Kathaleeya finally ties the knot
Actress Kathaleeya McIntosh had a simple but attention-grabbing wedding ceremony yesterday at Pranburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan.
Kathaleeya McIntosh and husband Songkran Grachangnetara after their marriage in Prachuap Khiri Khan yesterday.
The wedding rite and dinner party were held with only close relatives and friends at groom Songkran Grachangnetara's residential estate, Santi Pura. However, more than a hundred reporters and photographers gathered at the estate, although they were not allowed to view the traditional water-blessing ceremony in the morning.
According to sources, the rite was held before only about 20 relatives and guests, including their baby son Siri, or Mac. Kathaleeya, in traditional Thai attire, burst into tears when her mother poured blessed water for the couple.
"I am happy and want to thank you all for coming to join my special day, although my wedding is held simply with only a small group of relatives and friends," Kathaleeya said after the rite in a brief interview with reporters waiting outside.
"No words can explain my feelings at this moment."
She apologised to reporters for barring them from the water-blessing rite.
Last September, the actress shocked fans and the media when she announced she was pregnant. Previously, Kathaleeya had a reputation for being quite conservative.
At the dinner party, Kathaleeya and Songkran hosted guests who included television stars. She wore a pink evening dress and he wore a soft white suit.
Following the dinner party she told reporters she and a few close friends had spent only a short time preparing for the wedding.
"I have yet to consider my career in the entertainment field because I prefer to focus mainly on Mac. He is only six months now," she said when was asked about her plans. "I have yet to think about having another baby," she added.
The bride's brother Willy McIntosh said later he had planned a new TV show that Kathaleeya would host.
Kathaleeya refused to disclose information about her marriage registration, saying she wanted everything to be secret.
Songkran thanked reporters who joined the wedding and said he would do his best to care for his bride.
After the interview, reporters asked Songkran to kiss Kathaleeya for some photographs but she refused.
The bride's mother Yuraporn McIntosh said she was glad to see them married.
