If there’s that one word to describe Seri & Eugene as a couple, ADORABLE must be it. Being the one to introduce Eugene to tonnes of Malay wedding traditions and customs makes Seri a very helpful and understanding partner to have. While Eugene on the other hand, I bet he enjoyed each and every bit of this new experience Seri threw to him. :D. The only time I see him frown that day, was when he tried to finish up the draft of his speech, for the dinner.
While Eugene focus on his speech, Seri gets to make up and get ready for showtime!
Do you notice the silver coloured hair ornaments that Seri was wearing? Those are what we call “Cucuk Sanggul”. They are traditional hairpins normally worn by ladies, back during the old days. They fit nicely with her wedding costume made from “Songket” fabric.
Eugene’s costume are also made from Songket to compliment Seri’s.
Somehow I find Fifi’s (Seri’s youngest sister) contradicting facial expressions in these 2 photos pretty interesting.
Next was the “Merenjis” session, which witnessed their parents, relatives and guests of honor giving blessings to both of them.
Seri & Eugene then move from the wedding dais and head to the main table for “Makan Beradab” together with their parents and guests.
Couple of traditional performances to feast the guests during dinner,
and a special appearance by Seri’s uncle and cousin on the acoustics,
followed by the best man, Chris’s speech.
Finally, it was Eugene’s turn to address the crowd with the speech he prepared earlier. See, no frowns anymore!!!
So, that’s about it, the auspicious day for Seri & Eugene. Sorry if this post actually took quite awhile to load. There are just so many photos of them worth sharing with everyone. Now, this is what I call my heaviest post ever, for these two adorable couple who are very generous with smiles.
If you think you have seen enough photos of them, please hold that thought. Aren’t you just curious to see how their outdoor photos taken around Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur will turn out?
