Intan & Giram Wedding (Pernikahan adat Palembang - Palembang)



Intan and Giram are survivors of a long distance relationship. As Giram was occupied with his works, Intan was preparing their wedding with the help from family and close friends. These fact did nothing to discourage Intan, in fact she did it all with pure joy.

Due to the nature of their work, as Intan is based in Palembang and Giram works in other city that makes their relationship already a challenge. It was an honor for us when this busy couple managed to do their prewedding shoot in Jakarta last year. Before the prewedding photoshoot, we only had one meeting with them, however this love bugs treated us like old friends from the beginning of our meeting, which made everyone feeling at ease and relax during the prewedding photoshoot that day.

In the end of last year, Intan and Giram had their wedding in Palembang. During our arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Intan herself. Unfortunately, Giram was still out of town due to his work assigment and we did not have the chance to meet him. The wedding matrimony was held in Intan's residence with the attendance from both families. The matrimony went sacred and as planned. Thus, Intan and Giram also held the traditional wedding ceremony. The ceremony goes with the elements of Palembang themes called suap-suapan and cacap-cacapan. On the suap-suapan ceremony the Bride and Groom are feeding each other with food where the groom gives the bride a mouthful of yellow steamed rice and so does the bride. Both parents and grandparents also join the tradition with words of wisdom. They splash the water that has been used for the cacap-cacapan ceremony to the Bride and Groom. This procession is a symbol of the hope from the parents that the bride and groom will always have a clear mind, positive thinking, and a high purpose in marriage life.






















































The next day the wedding reception was held in Novotel Hotel and Residence, Palembang. Blue was the color chosen by Intan and Giram for their wedding. In the Palembang traditional procession, the ceremony was started with a Tarian Pagar Pengantin dance which has a deep meaning was performed by Intan. It represents the departure of the bride from her single life and to her marriage life. Our most memorable moment was when Intan and Giram gave a surprise for Intan's father as he was having a birthday on that day. The grandchildren of Intan's father suddenly walked to the aisle while singing 'Happy Birthday' song followed by all the wedding attendees. The wedding of Intan and Giram went grand and merrier, we felt the joyful and warm atmosphere at the reception. Intan and Giram gave us an amazing wedding present with the element of Palembang culture in its core.


It has been a pleasure for us to work and being involved in their wedding and we wish Intan and Giram a very happy marriage life.
