Weddings!!!!

I was going through my old boxes earlier and stumbled upon these two vintage photos.... and had a good laugh with the girls.... Its the wedding pictures of their grandparents. I must say their weddings looked much more happening than ours. Hmm.

1961 - My father in law with mother in law. In their western garb... a must for many Malay weddings even back then. And there's a typewritten caption at the back of the pix: Perkahwinan Antara Suami & Isteri. Ia-Itu Si-Hasan Dengan Si-Siah. Hahahaha... how very 60s.

1962 - My bapak and mak. In a more traditional getup fit for Raja Sehari. I noticed too that in those days, the pelamin(dais) usually would be decorated with plants or pokok bunga yang ditanam sendiri di rumah.
1993 - Our wedding. we didn't do the bersanding and therefore no pelamin for us. And this picture is the closest thing that we have to the bersanding ceremony.


Three weddings different decades... wonder how my daughters (panjang umur and murah rezeki) weddings will turn out?
By the way, one trivia question.... The three weddings above had one thing in common. What is it? Take a guess....

Salaam Pak Mior,
I can only notice that none of the queens of the day smiling la on all the pictures. Hrm~~~ apa dah jadi?
Senyum dalam hati tu.... :)
Got some of the old-skool pictures also, ada lah satu kotak hahaha. Serious, kalau baca dia punya caption tu, mau ketawa macam nak rak dunia :)

Kak Teh said...

you pun tak bersanding? samalah dengankak teh. WE had two cushions in the lounge, lots of relatives and friends. The closest to bersanding that we have now is when we visit children of friends' weddings and then tumpang duduk sat atas pelamin!
aaah, comelnya cik Yan!

And yes,you are right none of the brides smiled... tension kot?

Mior Azhar said...

Neeza,
Are back in Saudi? How's the raya and the wedding?
Er you got it right on the location... but I wasn't referring to the venue laaar... something else hehehe

Mior Azhar said...

Kak Teh,
Ya ker? You mean you and your baju kebaya biru tak bersanding? Sayangnyaaaaa hahahaha. And tak sama lar Kak Teh, duk kat pelamin orang lain...
And thanks, comel kan my bride? I'm a lucky man!! but nowadays my youngest (who's always at loggerheads ngan bapak dia) selalu tanya Yan, macam mana lah mak nak kat bapak dulu? hahahahhaa

Mior Azhar said...

Anom,
Jap la... Kak Yan herself masih tak tau the answer...duh... anti dia dpt tahu then 'let you know... (hint: I think Meor would be able to figure it out).
Eh bilak kita nak beraya ni?

wanshana said...

Mior,

Can I have two guesses?

(i) Wedding dates sama?

(ii) Same wedding photographers?

And yes - you look exactly like your Dad, Mior :)

Mior Azhar said...

SALAH GILEEEEEEEEEE. soalan dia ketiga-tiga majlis perkawinan laaa.

Mior Azhar said...

Shana,

Hope your days are better now...
and oops nope nope nope... but really same photographer? my, that guy would have been very old during Yan's and my wedding, no? hahahaha

kita tunggu Yan's answer... can?

Azian Hasan said...

Yes I know.... jawapan yang selamat ialah tiga2 brides tu semua anak bongsu.
But I think the real answer yang dikehendaki would be that all the weddings were arranged marriage - kes kena paksa rela ... tu yang semua tak senyum except for one person... no need mention name here lar just see the pix...

wanshana said...

Tapi kan Mior, kalau masa wedding parents you all, the photographer baru 20 years old ke, masa wedding you all, he would be around 45-50 year old what... :)

Mior Azhar said...

Shana,
ooops, now you know how good my maths is? alamak...

Yang Safia said...

leen said...

mokk said...
