The guests, about 10,000, spent the entire wedding ceremony in their own cars
The curious wedding took place in Putrajaya, Malaysia
According to the laws in force in the country, a maximum of 20 people can participate in a wedding
By hosting them in the car, however, the spouses have misled the anti-Covid19 provisions
The wedding guests drove in front of the new couple
For refreshments, we opted for pre-packed meals delivered directly to the vehicle
There are those who, even with the tremendous Coronavirus wave that is bringing the whole world to its knees, do not give up on the day of the fateful yes. In fact, to celebrate their union, a couple of newly weds from Malaysia opted for an alternative religious rite. Instead of the classic guests hosted in the church, as usual in a wedding, the latter were able to attend the ceremony from the comfort of their car.
Those that took place in Putrajaya, Malaysia, are the first ever "drive-through" wedding in history. All the guests, due to anti-Covid 19 government provisions, were unable to get out of the cockpit, not even to congratulate the newlyweds. Even in Malaysia, in fact, there is the maximum limit of people who can attend a religious ceremony, about 20. In this way, however, 10,000 guests were able to participate directly from their cars and with well-sealed windows.
The groom is the son of an influential politician
Behind the large number of guests, however, there is an underlying reason: the young husband, Tengku Muhammed Hafiz, is the son of a former minister much loved by the people. Hence the kilometric line of cars that the two young people marched in front of to pay homage to him.
Like any self-respecting wedding, the newlyweds did not want to give up even the "classic" post-ceremony refreshment, delivering pre-packaged meals directly from the car window. In this way, the guests did not have to get out of the cockpit. It took 3 hours for all the guests to finish parade in front of the couple.
