In continuation of the recent series on the Javanese wedding at Ceromo Lawang… When the groom arrived at the bride’s house, they were led into and seated in the hall where blessings were chanted by this man in a religious ceremony. I am not exactly sure what he was chanting, but I guess it was all for good luck. As he chanted, he would use a brush and glisten offerings of food with (what I assume was) “holy water”. I managed to catch him in his chant against the interesting wedding decor within the hall. I am not sure what a fellow photographer actually shot right beside me, but I was quite pleased with the composition I got in the end, given the tight space constraints 🙂
