First Time at Bataknese Engagement
January 21th, 2017
There was a bataknese engagement which is called by Marhusip in Taman Giri Loka, BSD. They have different culture compared to other traditional engagement. Based on my experience as engagement photographer, mostly the bride to be was hidden in a different room. When her father calls her to come out, she walks to the main area. I also expected that bride to be would be given the engagement ring by the groom to be or mother of groom to be.
However, there was no engagement ring instead of money as a symbol which their fathers or uncles gave to them. Luci also didn’t hide in any room. I expected that Alvin and Lucy would be sit in the front row. Nevertheless, they sat in the behind ones. In this event, mostly their fathers and uncles who discussed about their wedding in Bataknese (which is I don’t understand at all :p). Last but not least, the new thing for me is seeing the real head of pig as one of symbol in this event hehehe
Overall, I enjoy capturing the moments. I got new experience and absolutely new friends 🙂
