A Wedding in Jakarta

Monday, March 19, 2012

Salaam all,

I just got back from a 6-day holiday in Jakarta, Indonesia.
I am exhausted! *phewh*
 Did all sorts of things and even attended a wedding.
I know weddings are meant to be happy occasions but I couldn't help but feel a bit sad. 
The groom's parents recently passed away. 
Innalillah wa inna ilayhi rajioon
His late mother was a family friend and it was her final wish to see him get married. 
Before she passed away from breast cancer she was hospitalised. 
Even though she wasn't well she would find any opportunity to go out of the hospital to buy things for the wedding preparations. 
To think that she wasn't able to be there on the day itself made me feel so sad even though the atmosphere was joyous.
But who's to say she wasn't there in spirit, right? 

The bride was stunning, mashaAllah
Thought I'd share some photos to show you her beautiful dress. 

May God grant them a blessed and happy marriage and children who will be the coolness of their eyes.
   And May He grant the groom's parents a place in Jannatul Firdaus. Ameen.

xoxo, Sha

@Noor, hmm I think they wore the same colour to show the unification of 2 families. I think!
