Lalu Lalu

Make way for the Bride & Groom ! Zul & Insan are flanked by a "Pengapit" each standing guard and fanning the newly weds as guests remaining look on.

Pusing Naga

Customary for the groom's front entourage to encircle the font of the bride's house three times for good luck.

Golden Opportunity

If you're touring Brunei Darussalam, and a friend invites to a Berbedak event, come along and experience the decorating of the open hands with seven and sometimes nine colors made of paste and other natural ingredients.

Majlis Berbedak

"Berhimpus" is a tradition where the bride is carried out from her bedroom to be blessed and decorated on the Majlis Berbedak event, then brought back in the same manner as practiced widely amongst the "Pengiran-pengiran" or loyal clans of royal descent.
