You're invited to attend a real Malay wedding in a village near Kuala Lumpur, and enjoy Malaysian traditional culture and heritage!
The Malay wedding ceremony is filled with age-old traditions and customs derived from the royal courts. On their wedding day, the bride and groom are considered royalty, so every element might be eye-opening to you. Come experience Malay local culture on this special day with Santika.
In the morning, have fun like kids do in the kampung, with Malaysian traditional games like congkak, baling selipar and galah panjang! After that, enjoy batik painting, an ancient art of Malaysia.
Towards the afternoon, get dressed up for the wedding ceremony, complete with traditional Malay attire. As the wedding begins, we will march towards the bride's house accompanied a group of musicians playing kompang. There will be a wedding reception, followed by a visit to a traditional house.
After the wedding, head towards a herbs garden where a local will share the magical secrets of nature, then spend time relaxing by the river before it is time to go home.
