TELUK INTAN, Perak: Her parents held their wedding ceremony on a sampan 28 years ago and today, she had a special wedding on the same sampan that "sailed" on land.

Malay bride Nurul Ain, 25, was a newly graduated bride while her husband Mohamad Hafi was an engineer working in Kuala Lumpur.

Nurul said that her parents held their wedding on 14 April 1982 and they sailed on the sampan across Sungai Perak. Today, they are living a happy life with seven children.

Therefore, she wished to hold a similar wedding on the same sampan and the only difference was, the wedding was held on land instead of river.
