Abo's berbedak ceremony

26.06.2009 marked the ceremony of our brother's 'berbedak ceremony', one of the many ceremonies in Brunei Malay weddings. 7 colours of powder is sprinkled on the groom's palms ended with the 'bunga rampai' of scented flowers and pandan leaves. The elders are then given the 'bunga telur' to symbolize the prayer for the couple's endless marital relationship and growing size of family kins.

As usual, the families have great time celebrating the weddings. It's the Ahmads' first wedding. The 'bersanding ceremony' will take place tomorrow at the Rizqun Hotel.

Enjoy the pictures! :)

'Berlulur' ceremony: this makes the groom's skin smooth and fairer for the big day :)
According to our culture, the remaining of the groom's 'lulur' powder is mixed with the bride's and keep in a small bag to be thrown away to the sea. Unique eyh :)
