- Wedding: May 2012
First bunch of pictures: Cultural Bit
Second part: Beach wedding
I finally receive pro pictures from my photographer today and I am pretty happy. It really brought back some memories and I wish I could get married again!
First, the groom had to pick me up with his buddies but to get to me, he had to go through some kind of obstacle course (prepared by my girlfriends). This involves eating sweet, sour, bitter and spicy stuff (according to Chinese tradition, this signifies marriage), a Q&A session, folding an origami cat etc.
Then we moved on to the tea ceremony (we paid respect to our elders and then the younger relatives paid respects to us haha
Everyone had tea/coffee, sweet canapés and some (mostly Dutch) candy and cookies
Then, everyone went to the ceremony area (the beach) while I changed…
In the meantime, guests are at the ceremonial area:
I take some pictures with my dad and bridesmaids and then head to the ceremonial area too:
We say our vows and exchange rings:
And we’re married!
And then we go take couple photos:
OK OK , lets move on to the reception…
Phew yooo…that’s a lot of pictures! Sorry!
