A traditional Chinese wedding in Glasgow

After falling in love with May Wan and Danny’s Scottish seaside wedding, we couldn’t wait to share their Chinese celebration. Filled with fun and games, plus traditions including the tea ceremony, their colourful day is the perfect way to kick off the week.

May Wan and Danny started their day with Chinese door games at May Wan’s parents’ home. The boys were challenged at the door and not allowed to come in until they completed a series of tasks. It started off with wasabi rice rolls…their poor noses… downed by lovely cups of bovril!! And many others, as the girls did not let them off lightly! As if that wasn’t enough, they had to barter their way in so the groom could collect his bride.

Bride collected, the first tea ceremony took place with May Wan’s family and then everyone headed over to May Wan And Danny’s flat for the second tea ceremony, which was held for Danny’s side.

“There was so much laughter and lovely moments to capture,” says photographer, Chantal. “We love being able to be a part of different wedding customs.”

After the tea ceremonies, the happy couple headed to Pollok Park for photos. “We were able to leisurely walk around and have an absolute laugh, even though it rained,” Chantal continues. “We cannot thank them enough for not even bothering about it and going for it!

“Scott and I aren’t used to having that much time for photos! It was a luxury but also we felt we had enough photos so we unanimously decided to stop by The Brooklyn Cafe for some lunch, which was so nice! To sit there with the bride and groom and their entourage, chatting and having a good laugh was so unlike how things usually run on a day. It was uniquely fun and so enjoyable!”

May Wan And Danny were greeted at See Woo – where their Chinese banquet took place – by a Unicorn Dance and drums. The perfect way to get the party started!

How much fun does this celebration look?! Love, love, love it! Christina x
