Photographs from a Moravian traditional wedding in kroj from the town Němčice nad Hanou in 1992. The Haná region is located in eastern Czech Republic in Moravia. You will see real people recreating the 19th century traditional ceremony. I have translated the "Šátek song" from Czech; this was sung to the new bride by the women of the village. There are variations of this song in different cultures especially in Eastern Europe. I used the song Už sa mamko vydám Mom, I want to be married by Brněnská Moravěnka since I did not have a song from the Haná region. Please rate and see my other videos!

Na kopečku je háječek
On the hill there is a meadow
na něm se točí, má modré oči, šohajíček
My love with blue eyes turns

Co's dcerečko, co's dělala
What did you do dear girl?
Že's před oltářem, před Božskou tváří, přísahala
What did you promise before the altar, before Gods face

Včera jsi byla maminčina Yesterday you belonged to your mother
A dneskaj už jsi, a dneskaj už jsi, jeho žena Today you are his wife

Včera byla (bride's maiden name) (repeat) Yesterday she was (bride's maiden name)
a dneskaj už jsi, a dneskaj už jsi, (groom's last name) Today you are (groom's last name)

Včera jsi měla bílé šaty (repeat) a dneskaj už máš, a dneskaj už máš, samé laty Yesterday you wore a white dress, and today you have a patched dress
Včera's měla z růží věnec (repeat) Yesterday you wore a wreath of roses
a dneskaj už máš, a dneska už máš černý čepec Today you have and today you have a black bonnet

Dej, ženichu, dej nám piva (repeat) Groom give us some beer
abyste mělí, abyste mělí, za rok syna So after a year you will have a son

Za rok syna, za dva dceru (repeat) After one year a son, after two years a daughter
abyste mělí, abyste mělí pěknou páru So you will have a beautiful pair
