In the midst of all the modern-day wedding celebrations I shoot, the freshness of Bibiem and Uphie’s traditional wedding celebration still plays so vividly in my memories. Modernization did not make Bibiem and Uphie forget where they came from. Their union was celebrated in a traditional Palembang wedding ceremony. And there is nothing like culture that brings sentimental feelings in such a grand celebration.
It was surely a memorable experience for us. We grew some more appreciation for the rich cultures our country possesses, but more than that, We grew respect for the people who, despite the modern influences, still takes preserving their culture to heart.
Congratulations Bibiem & Uphie
