Something Borrowed,Something Blue

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.

Thats an old English proverb as a good luck token for the bride. In Malaysia the colours of bride's attire are varied according to personal favourites. in this outing I'd like to share with you the wedding of my cousin's son.

The ceremony began early in the morning around 10am with the recital of Marhaban and ended around noon. It's a welcoming Nasheed for the bride and her family as well as praises for Muhammad Rasulullah (PBUH).

THE MARHABAN



The food was good. My aunt's friend was the caterer. The dishes includes Briyani, white rice, dalcha, ayam masak merah, beef kurma, mixed dried fruit acar or chutney, pisang masak lemak (young banana in coconut milk stew), mixed dried vegetables, sambal belacan and fried salted fish. Water melon fruits and red sweet sherbet as desserts.

THE FOOD



The bride arrived around noon and was welcomed by the groom and family accompanied by the beat of the kompang.

THE ARRIVAL OF THE BRIDE



The couple were seated on the dais for the blessing ceremony by family and friends.

THE BERSANDING CEREMONY



THE KOMPANG BEAT





As a parting gift from the family to the guests, we were given a boiled egg decorated with flowers, a scented soap, bahulu (a traditional cake), scented poutpouri and another traditional sweetmeat called wajik (sweetened glutinous rice).




My wish for the newlyweds, may the marriage lasts for eternity and hereafter. To my readers, thank you for your time, take care.

Salam,
Umi
