My sister had been going through her wedding vows on last Sunday, and I really had been looking forward to take as many photos as I could on this special event. I did manage to shot some wonderful moments, but most of the others unfortunately got blurred. The thing is that I didn't expect my hands to become so shaky on this once in a lifetime experience. Note to myself: You are not suitable to become a photographer on emotional events like this. It is good to know that there were also more professional photographers or we would be in big trouble. LOL
A traditional Indonesian wedding consists of several parts. You can say that two of the main ceremonies are the vows and the reception afterward. But, there might also be held other unique ceremonies at separated places by the family of both sides. Nowadays, things have been kept more simple without neglecting the sacral parts.
I don't know why, but the part of a father giving away his daughter to her future husband has always been my weak moment while attending weddings. It is considered as a very sacred moment here in Indonesia, where a bride is send off by her parents to go on a new journey with her husband. May be like a bird who flies for the first time out of her nest. Anyway, I couldn't bring myself to hold the camera straight and gave it to my husband. It turned out that even he shook a little. My father's face got blurred.
