Being a Chinese wedding photographer London has it’s challenges – they start early and finish late but I love the passion and intimacy of these gorgeous weddings.  Anly and Phillip chose me as their Chinese wedding photographer and I was so excited to be shooting their day.

It started at the brides house.  The boys arrive and are obstructed by the bride’s entourage, who then demand money and give the guys games and forfeits to undertake.  It was so cool to shoot – the girls were harsh!

The best way I can explain it is to show you!  Here’s what happened at the start of Anly and Phillip’s Chinese wedding…

One for all, and all for one. The boys show solidarity before the games begin.

The bride’s entourage decided the guys should pass dried seaweed from mouth the mouth and for those that failed the task, they prepared a rather foul drink as a penalty. They thought it might have been vinegar but it was in fact chilli infused vodka. I love some of the expressions!

People came out of their flats to watch the games.

The groom had to wear a banana while the rest of his friends had to eat it.

They then had to guess the brides favourite ballard and sing it really loudly so she could hear it while she was getting ready.

Now the groom had to re-enact the moment he proposed.
