The Groom, Philip, Carries his Bride on His Laps
October 4, 2018
The bride’s father admonishes the groom to take care of his daughter as he gives her out.
He then asks his daughter for the last time if this is the man she wants to marry. She responds with a “yes” as her father reminds her that she no more has a room in the house to return to.
The bride’s father then leads her to the groom’s father and puts her to sit on the groom’s father’s laps seven times. The groom’s father then rises and places the bride on the laps of his son, who was seated next to him.
Their union is sealed by this action.
