A Wedding Reception (part 2)
Still @ the traditional Korean wedding ceremony @ King Sejong Wedding Hall.
Now I know why early autumn is a perfect setting for wedding. One of the reasons is the perfect blue sky.:)
Being outdoor would be a great thing to be and to do.
The groom is ready to summon the bride? No, he's going to gama as well.
Now...that both the groom and the bride are inside the gama (palanquin), they are ready to initiate the process.
hmm...I just realized that the palanquins were set on wheels. Instead of people carrying them, wheels now do the job.^^
the 'samulnori' troupe with its ear-deafening sounds started the procession.
then...some supposedly tough guys (who in the past did the job of 'carrying' the gama on their shoulders) came up....
The guests were ready to take a look at the procession.
First, the groom underwent tedious ceremonial processes that must have lasted a an hour or so..should had it been in the past? but...well...I don't know...
it lasted for a mere 5 minute or so.
The groom paid a respect to his parents before proceeding to be wedded.
