Chinese Wedding Photographer London
A few weeks ago I had an enormous pleasure of photographing a Chinese wedding of Amy and Chi in the Hall Place in Bexley in London. Well, the wedding really mixed Chinese traditions like the Tea Ceremony and Chinese Banquet with western vibe during the main ceremony. A perfect mixture of both worlds and a treat for any wedding photographer. I just loved capturing the colours of traditional Chinese outfits. As well as the atmosphere of happiness but also respect during the Tea Ceremonies. That is when the couple served traditional Chinese tea to both parents of bride and groom, as well as other close family members.
The evening banquet took place at the Yi-Ban Restaurant right next to the London City Airport. Very unusual and interesting setting. It was great to see the planes taking off and landing just across the water channel. All the guest travelled between the venues in a traditional British London red Routemaster double-decker bus. Well, apart from the bride and groom who travelled in a classic cream Bentley!
The banquet itself was a true feast for eyes and most importantly the taste buds of all the guests, as well as me! So many traditional Chinese dishes cooked to perfection and beautifully served. The crab was simply to die for!
Hall Place Bexley Wedding Photography
The main venue for the day, the Hall Place in Bexley, is a stunning Tudor house with magnificent gardens sitting on the banks of the River Cray. I absolutely loved shooting there as the Hall Place has a beautiful architecture inside and outside, with timber walls and beams which give even some of the largest rooms a warm and cosy feel. The venue also boasts extensive grounds with blooming trees and trimmed hedges, which we used as backdrops when we went with the couple to do their photographs after the ceremony.
The ceremony there was gorgeous and the atmosphere was even more enhanced by a group of musician ladies playing some beautiful tunes on their classical instruments.
Coming back to Amy and Chi: Those two are just such a fun couple. We have met before when we did our engagement shoot around the grounds of Hever Castle. Because of that, I knew I’m up for a day filled with joy and laughter in their company. And it was indeed a great day. Not only the couple but also their family and friends were fun to be around and made me feel very welcome. They also cared about having great photography on the day, which made me very happy indeed.
Thank you so much guys for trusting in me to document your special day. I enjoyed it very much!
