dais

one weekend last month… i was in a remote village near grik for a wedding shoot… the place where i stayed and its surroundings were pretty cool (literally!)… the air was fresh and the atmosphere was so laid back… it was a fun place to have a paid vacation ;)

it was truly a traditional malay wedding with the perfect setting… friends, relatives and neighbours from near and afar were helping out through teamwork (gotong-royong) round the clock… be it the preparation of food for the party (kenduri) or the decorations of the wedding dais (pelamin), bridal room ( bilik kelamin) and the gifts(hantaran)

it was truly a traditional malay wedding with the perfect setting… friends, relatives and neighbours from near and afar were helping out through teamwork (gotong-royong) round the clock… be it the preparation of food for the party (kenduri) or the decorations of the wedding dais (pelamin), newlyweds’ room (bilik kelamin) and the gifts (hantaran)

the main highlights of the day were the prayer recital (doa yasin)… followed by the marriage solemnisation (akad nikah) at the mosque just down the road… the lunch (kenduri) itself of course… and last but not least… the bersanding ceremony on the wedding dais where family and friends will take turns to congratulate the bride and groom…
