HM Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, HM Queen Saleha, HRH Crown Prince Al-Muhtadee Billah and HRH Crown Princess Sarah, getting off the side stage.
This is when the groom says something like this “I accept the Mas Kahwin for $_____ cash.” I think hahahahaha. Then when the Imam’s agree that HH Pg Ruzaimi says everything in correct order, then he is officially married to HRH Princess Hafizah.
In Malay, Istiadat Berbedak, when translate directly means, Powdering Ceremony.
At Singgahsana Indera Buana Istana’s Hall, Nurul Iman’s Palace.
Just few hours ago, “Adat Bersuruh” which basically means, the soon to be Groom’s Parents, go to the soon to be Bride’s Parents, asking permission whether the Bride is available for marriage or not. Usually a pair of Diamond Gold Rings are brought along to show the Bride’s Parents.
However in this society, this is just a tradition, compare to few decades ago, Arrange Marriage was part of it.
I am not sure what the name of soon to be Groom is, the bride is Yang Teramat Mulia Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Hafizah Sururul Bolkiah *HRH Princess Hafizah*, 2nd youngest child of HM Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Muizzaddin Waddaulah with HM Queen Saleha.
Stay tuned with the picture!
