Red is considered one of the luckiest colors in traditional Chinese culture as it symbolises happiness, joy and prosperity.You will see red - lot of it. Also another common colour will include gold - a symbol of wealth and fortune.
If you’re unfamiliar with Chinese Wedding Door Games(at least we were!),let me tell you,they are FUN! The first set of games or tasks were ‘played’ when Ming - the groom arrived with his male entourage at the brides family home. Rita - the bride was waiting in her room as all her female friends began their Door Games. The reason behind the games is so to prove that the girls are not prepared to let their good friend go so easily and to also show the grooms love for his bride!No pain no gain they say… so come on girls…let’s wax the boys legs! Actually let me re-phrase – hilarious, crazy and complete madness, that’s what comes to mind!
Rita and Ming traditional tea ceremony took place at groom's parents in London and at the reception venue. Now traditionally, in Chinese cultures, the tea ceremony was essentially the “civil ceremony.” The Chinese tea ceremony is about respecting the parents and honouring the families on both sides.
My couple's wedding banquet was a lavish affairs held in the evening at Phoenix Palace Restaurant with the bride and groom booking out the entire section of the traditional Chinese restaurant for a ...12-course dinner, lasting more than 3 hours...let me tell you:it was DELICIOUS!!!
Thank you, Rita & Ming! I hope you will enjoy the photos for years to come!
