Mueang District Chief Pairoj Srilamoon was the registrar himself for the couples who registered in advance to officially register their marriage today.

For the special occasion, the District Chief gave away souvenirs for the couples, such as hotel vouchers for the first 20 couples, while all registrants received special holders for their marriage certificates.

All couples also were entered in a lucky draw for more special prizes, including one saleung of gold worth about B7,700, Mr Phairoj said.

“The Mueang Phuket District Office recognises the importance of legal marriage registration, to create warmth, stability for the family and to maintain the rights and status of the people,” he added.
