A couple in Malaysia found a way to negotiate past the covid-19 pandemic as they hosted a large drive-thru wedding with over 10,000 people in attendance.
Covid-19 restrictions in the country state that weddings must not exceed 20 people but groom Tengku Muhammed Hafiz, who is the son of influential politician and former cabinet minister Tengku Adnan found a way to get married to bride Oceane Alagia in a Covid-secure manner.
On Sunday morning, December 20, the newly-weds were seated outside a grand government building in Putrajaya, south of the capital Kuala Lumpur, while guests slowly drove past in their cars.
The windows had to remain rolled up and guests only got a socially distant wave from the wedding party.
It took about three hours until all 10,000 attendees had passed by.
Sticking with the social distancing rules, the guests were treated to a dinner – although they had to pick up their pre-packed food through their car window and drive on.
It was also the birthday of the groom Tengku Muhammed Hafiz .
“I am informed that there are more than 10,000 cars here since this morning,” the proud father, former cabinet minister Tengku Adnan, wrote on Facebook, sharing pictures of the event.
“Me and my family are very honoured. Thank you all for understanding and adhering to all procedures made by drive-thru attendance without getting out of the car.”
Malaysia has over 92,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and more than 430 deaths
