We started 2012 with one of the most amazing weddings I have ever been to. A traditional Chinese wedding with Wan and Ling.
We started the day really early at the Dakota Hotel (at Eurocentral) at 7am !! Ling looked absolutely amazing and was ready just in time for the boys arriving at 8am. With a Chinese wedding the groom and his attendant try and ‘gain entry’ to the brides house/room and ‘take her away’ to get married – almost against her will. Before Wan gets in he has to prove his worthiness by passing some tests. These took the form of questions on Ling (kind of Mr & Mrs style) with a forfeit for every wrong question. Unfortunately for Wan’s attendants he got a few of the questions wrong and one of the forfeits was for one of the guys to get a leg wax strip applied to his leg!
After persuading Ling to come with him we left the Dakota and it was onto Park Circus where a lovely simple civil ceremony took place. Then after our customer 15 minutes shooting inside Park Circus it was onto the Chinatown Restaurant in Glasgow. Then began a 10 course traditional Chinese banquet – quite an amazing spectacle, as plateful after plateful was presented to each table !!
Unbelievably the food finished, the guest leave and then ……. another set of guests arrive and they do it all again!!
It was a long beautiful and exciting day. We never really knew what to expect next and with some much colour, noise and exotic ceremony it was a day which I don’t think we we ever forget. A great day out and, as you would expect, a fabulous set of pictures. Thank you Wan & Ling – 1500 Photography
