Chinese Fusion Wedding at Hampton Manor
My last wedding of the decade took me to the GORGEOUS Hampton Manor in Hampton-in-Arden. The couple selected the wedding venue as it was stylish and modern in a classic setting.
Ying and Jerry’s wedding focused on family and food, with Chinese tradition thrown in.
The bride looked stunning in a Watters dress from Tilly Trotters Bridal and was helped into it by her maid of honour, and mother. Finished of perfectly with some sparkly Jimmy Choo numbers.
The ceremony took place in the barn at Hampton Manor, followed by the confetti run resulting in some of my favourite confetti faces of 2019.
With Ying’s family joining the celebrations after travelling to the UK for the ocassion, excitement and emotion was high throughout the day, with a very emotional traditional Chinese wedding tea ceremony in the afternoon before the delicious wedding breakfast.
“In the traditional Chinese marriage ceremony, the bride and groom kneel in front of their respective parents and serve them tea and then thank them, together which represents an expression of their gratitude and respect. According to the tradition, the bride serves the groom’s family, and the groom serves the bride’s family. This process symbolizes the joining together of the two families.” – extract from Wikipedia
The bride and groom surprised the guests when their first dance was interrupted by a traditional Lion Dance, a fabulous show was performed by the Long Feng Martial group.
“Lion dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese Culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune” – extract from Wikipedia.
