Our Story

Our mutual cousin, Dewantara, set us up originally, thinking we’d be perfect for each other. And he’s right. Then we wondered why after all this time he didn’t introduce us to one another, knowing that both of us were single at that time and he seemed to be so sure that we’d be a good pair. Apparently, one of the reasons was that he had gotten married and happy already, so now he could let himself make others happy. Yup, he definitely put himself first……. Just kidding brother. We love you and thanks for being our Cupid. And now, we are happy to announce that we will embark a new journey together!

The Rituals

Our wedding will mostly be comprised of Balinese Hinduism Wedding ceremonies called Pawiwahan, which means marriage. The word is from the Sanskrit “vivāha”, from the root word “vivah”, which means “to marry”.

Being a couple who are in love with each other is not enough to make a decision to get married in Balinese culture. There are many other things that need to be considerate. There is a saying in Balinese culture which means “You are not only marrying the bride, but you are marrying the family as well”. For us it means that our family will get bigger, hence there will be more guidance, abundant of love and blessing for us in carrying our journey as a married couple.

 Here are the events of our wedding procession:

Mesedek

Thursday, 6 June 2019

Mesedek is a procession to introduce the groom-self, along with his family, and his serious intention to marry the bride to the bride’s family. It is the official occasion where the parents meet along with their small family to know each other and to make arrangements for the future plan of their children’s marriage ceremony. This procession is similar with engagement.

Ngidih and Memargi

Sunday, 9 June 2019 (Morning)

Ngidih, literally means “ask”, is a procession of asking permission to marry the bride. Here, the procession includes all the big familiy members from both sides, with several Hindu-Balinese rituals that mostly take place at the bride’s house. After the processions finish, it is followed by Memargi, literally means “going”, which represents the time when the bride is going to the groom’s house. Afterwards, a ceremony is held at the groom house to “welcome” the bride as the future new family member. At that moment, the bride is officially moved to the groom’s house.

Ananda Marga Marriage Ceremony

Sunday, 9 June 2019 at 16.00 WITA

Ananda Marga is a global spiritual and social service organization founded in 1955 by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti (Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar). Ananda means “bliss” and Marga means “path.” So Ananda Marga means “Path of Bliss.” The philosophy of Ananda Marga is one of universalism. It is an all-embracing outlook, recognizing God as the one limitless supreme consciousness, with all beings of the universe part of the one cosmic family. The mission of Ananda Marga is self-realization (individual emancipation) and service to humanity (collective welfare): the fulfillment of the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all people.

The ceremony has several key aspects that include caring for the physical, emotional, psychic, and spiritual well-being of all family members, viewing marriage as a service to Parama Purusa (God), and taking the vow to watch over both one’s unit family as well as the global, universal family. These are all significant elements of the Ananda Marga marriage system.

Pawiwahan

Wednesday, 12 June 2019 (Morning)

It is the wedding day, held in the groom’s house. It will be attended by the family members, relative, and neighbors from both sides. The procession consists of several traditional ceremonies that signifies the pray and hope for the couple to have a blessed and happy marriage.

The procession is unlike the other weddings, which is the moment of saying “I do” is not part of the ceremony. The ritual presents many offerings made of coconut leaf, flower, fruits, and other earth sourced material, and the bride and groom pray to the supreme God and the ancestors for blessing. This is also symbolizing that the wedding is witnessed by God and their ancestors.
