For local Malay wedding begin with akad nikah (marriage contract). The groom will signs the marriage contract and agrees to provide mas kahwin (money or goods or anything requested by the bride). This is only a symbol to show that the man is willing to build a family with the lady.

Not only lovely images, but thank you for the story. I'm fascinated by wedding traditions of cultures I don't know much about.

Is gold a traditional wedding color there?

I think we Americans totally got robbed with white (after seeing a Pakistani-American wedding with lots of red and gold).

Hahahahha.. that's not a gold... only some accessories... Gold is not a traditional wedding color... up to the bride to choose which colour they wants... FYI The yellow is the colour of Their Highnesses the Rulers (King or Sultan).

Oh, I knew it wasn't gold per se, just that I'd call that color gold.

Here, brides wear white and grooms wear black (mostly), which is very very dull.
