Chinese tea ceremony with Teri

We have done quite a lot of Asian weddings over the years which we love- all those great colours to work with. This year so far we’ve done 2 Chinese weddings, the tea ceremony with the parents sound moving and it’s about showing respect to both sets of parents. But the challenges the groom has to face with the bridesmaids sound hilarious!  They are put through their paces to make sure they are suitable to marry the bride-to-be.

So think humiliating singing/dancing/story telling and afterwards they have to pay the bridesmaids for the honour of marrying their friend. This needs to be adopted into British weddings! 

Teri came for her bridal trial with her mum who could’ve passed for her sister, look out for her in the pink dress helping Teri with her many pieces of jewellery. A tradition that was made fun as she told us about some of them (we liked the piglet necklace)!

Her room at Dunglass Estate was buzzing with family & friends, I hope you enjoy these snapshots of our morning.

Kerry was so chuffed that her wedding dress had pockets, I was just hoping she wasn’t planning on keeping her red lipstick there! 

Monica and I drove up to the beautiful Perthshire countryside to Fingask castle, we tried and failed to take a video of the grounds and the trees with the unusual topiary.
