The Akad Nikah, or wedding solemnization, of KPH Notonegoro and GKR Hayu was conducted at Panepen Mosque on Tuesday (10/22). It was attended by Sultan Hamengku Buwono X, KPH Notonegoro, and the male relatives.

 

Prior to the Akad Nikah, KPH Notonegoro, who walked escorted between Ir GBPH Suryadiningrat and Dr GBPH Suryametaram, departed from Bangsal Kasatriyan and headed forth to Bangsal Trajumas along with the entourage, which included KGPH Hadiwinoto, GBPH Pakuningrat, GBPH Hadinegoro, GBPH Suryanegaran, GBPH Hadisurya, GBPH Candradiningrat, KPH Wironegoro, KPH Purbodiningrat, and KPH Yudhanegara. The entourage was also followed by the Pendherek, the other following entourage of six persons, who dressed in white atela, a type of Javanese traditional male dress. The entourage of Pendherek consisted of KRT Pujaningrat and KRT Yudahadiningrat as well as KPH Notonegoro’s parents.

Upon arriving at Bangsal Trajumas, the groom’s entourage had been awaited by KRT Drs H Ahmad Kamaludiningrat, KRP Dipodiningrat, two representatives of the Office of Religious Affairs, and the Abdi Dalem Punakawan Kaji, a group of Abdi Dalem who have performed hajj and are usually involved in religious ceremonies. The whole entourage gathered to wait for GBPH H Prabukusumo S.Psi., who acted as the Sultan’s envoy who would welcome them and tell them that His Majesty Sultan Hamengku Buwono X had arrived at Panepen Mosque and had been all set to attend the wedding solemnization.

At around 7 am, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X ordered GBPH Prabukusumo S.Psi. and GBPH Cakraningrat S.E. to call the entourage, which indicated that the Akad Nikah could be started shortly. Afterwards, GBPH H Cakraningrat S.E. headed forth to the Porch of Bangsal Sri Manganti to welcome KRP Dipodiningrat and his entourage and escort them to Panepen Mosque. In the meantime, GBPH Prabukusumo SPSi headed to Kagungan Dalem Bangsal Trajumas to welcome GBPH Hadiwinoto and KPH Notonegoro along with their entourage and to escort them to Panepen Mosque as well. Leading in front of the entourage, KRP Dipodiningrat had carried the mas kawin, the dowry given by the groom to the bride, which consisted of a Koran and a set of salat equipment, while heading forth to Panepen Mosque along with the entourage and followed by GBPH H Prabukusumo S.Psi. and the entourage of KPH Notonegoro.

Entering Panepen Mosque, GBPH Prabukusumo S.Psi. took a seat behind Sultan Hamengku Buwono X and next to GBPH Haji Joyokusumo and GBPH Cakraningrat. Meanwhile, KGPH Hadiwinoto sat in the South section, facing North, along with the rest of Sultan’s relatives. KPH Notonegoro then sat facing Sultan HB X. The mas kawin was put among the entourage who sat behind KPH Notonegoro.

At 07.15, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X led the ritual of Ijab Kabul, or the wedding vow. The wedding vow was initiated by a wedding speech delivered by KRP Dipodiningrat. Following the wedding speech, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X continued the Ijab Kabul by shaking KPH Notonegoro’s hand. This means that Sultan Hamengku Buwono X himself married off his daughter to KPH Notonegoro.

KPH Notonegoro confirmed by firmly saying out the wedding vow in Bagongan Javanese words, “Kula Abdi Dalem KPH Notonegoro dinten menika ngestoaken dhawuh timbalan Dalem Ngarsa Dalem Sampeyan Dalem Hingkang Sinuwun Kanjeng Sultan Hamengku Buwana Hingkang Jumeneng Kaping Sedasa, kadhaupaken kalyan Putra Dalem Putri GKR Hayu, kanthi mas kawin Kitab Suci Al Qur’an sarta seperangkat alat sholat, Salajengipun nyadhong berkah pangestu dalem, Sembah nuwun.” The sentence means, “I, KPH Notonegoro, hereby perform the order given by His Majesty Ngarsa Dalem Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, to be married off to his daughter, GKR Hayu, with the mas kawin of a Koran and a set of salat equipment. To continue with, I would like to ask for an approval from His Majesty. Thank you.”

Finished with the wedding vow, the ceremony was then continued with a wedding prayer led by Penghageng Kawedanan Pengulon Kanjeng Kamaludiningrat.

By saying out the Ijab Kabul, KPH Notonegoro has officially been accepted as the Sultan’s son-in-law. The Akad Nikah alone was completed at 07.40. Afterwards, KPH Notonegoro took off the keris—the Javanese creese—attached on the back of his hip and offered a sungkem, a manifestation of a younger person’s devotion to an elder one, which is shown by kissing the elder’s hand and often done while kneeling down. Finished with the sungkem, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X ordered KGPH Hadiwinoto to escort KPH Notonegoro back to Bangsal Kasatriyan. Having arrived in Bangsal Kasatriyan, KPH Notonegoro changed clothes and got himself ready for the ritual of Panggih.

Sesampainya di Bangsal Trajumas, rombongan mempelai pria telah ditunggu oleh KRT Drs H Ahmad Kamaludiningrat, KRP Dipodiningrat, dua orang perwakilan KUA, dan para Abdi Dalem Punakawan Kaji. Keseluruhan rombongan berkumpul untuk menunggu GBPH H Prabukusumo SPsi sebagai utusan dalem yang akan menjemput dan menyampaikan bahwa Sultan Hamengku Buwono X telah hadir di Masjid Panepen serta siap untuk dilakukannya upacara akad nikah.

Sekitar pukul 07.10, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X lalu memerintahkan GBPH H Prabukusumo S Psi dan GBPH H Cakraningrat SE agar memanggil dua rombongan tadi. Hal ini menjadi tanda bahwa upacara Akad Nikah dapat dimulai. GBPH H Cakraningrat SE lalu beranjak menuju Teras Bangsal Sri Manganti untuk menjemput KRP Dipodiningrat beserta rombongannya menuju Mesjid Panepen. Sedangkan, GBPH Prabukusumo SPsi  menuju ke Kagungan Dalem Bangsal Trajumas untuk menjemput GBPH Hadiwinoto dan KPH Notonegoro beserta rombongan menuju Mesjid Panepen. Terlihat di barisan terdepan, KRP Dipodiningrat membawakan mas kawin yang berupa Al Quran dan seperangkat alat sholat, sembari beranjak bersama rombongan menuju Masjid Panepen yang disusul GBPH H Prabukusumo SPsi dan rombongan KPH Notonegoro.

Sesampainya di dalam Mesjid Panepen, GBPH Prabukusumo SPsi duduk di belakang  Sultan HB X berdampingan dengan GBPH Haji Joyokusumo dan GBPH Cakraningrat. Sedangkan KGPH Hadiwinoto duduk di sebelah selatan menghadap utara bersama dengan kerabat-kerabat Sultan yang lain. KPH Notonegoro lalu duduk menghadap Sultan HB X. Perangkat Mas Kawin dan para rombongan yang lain duduk di belakang KPH Notonegoro.

Sekitar pukul 07.15, Sultan HB X memulai Ijab Kabul. Ijab dimulai dengan khotbah nikah yang disampaikan oleh KRP Dipodiningrat.  Setelah khotbah nikah selesai, Sultan Hamengku Buwono X menjabat tangan KPH Notonegoro dalam Ijab Kabul. Di sini, Sultan HB X menikahkan sendiri putrinya.

KPH Notonegoro kemudian mengucapkan ikrar Ijab Kabul dengan tegas menggunakan bahasa Jawa Bagongan, “Kula Abdi Dalem KPH Notonegoro dinten menika ngestoaken dhawuh timbalan Dalem Ngarsa Dalem Sampeyan Dalem  Hingkang Sinuwun Kanjeng Sultan Hamengku Buwana Hingkang Jumeneng Kaping Sedasa, kadhaupaken kalyan Putra Dalem Putri GKR Hayu, kanthi mas kawin Kitab Suci Al Qur’an sarta seperangkat alat sholat, Salajengipun nyadhong berkah pangestu dalem, Sembah nuwun. (Saya, KPH Notonegoro, menjalankan titah Yang Mulia Ngarsa Dalem Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, untuk dinikahkan dengan putri Yang Mulia, GKR Hayu, dengan mas kawin Kitab Suci Al Qur’an beserta seperangkat alat sholat. Dan selanjutnya mohon doa restu Yang Mulia, terima kasih.)

Setelah itu acara kemudian disambung dengan doa nikah yang dipimpin oleh Penghageng Kawedanan Pengulon Kanjeng Kamaludiningrat.

Dengan diikrarkannya Ijab Kabul ini, KPH Notonegoro akhirnya telah resmi menjadi menantu Sultan HB X. Akad Nikah selesai sekitar pukul 07.40. KPH Notonegoro lalu menghaturkan sungkem dengan terlebih dahulu melepas keris di belakang pinggangnya. Setelah sungkem, Sultan HB X memerintahkan KGPH Hadiwinoto untuk mengantarkan KPH Notonegoro kembali ke Bangsal Kasatriyan. Di Bangsal Kasatriyan, KPH Notonegoro berganti busana dan segera bersiap-siap untuk upacara Panggih.
