Peng & Yanhui I | Destination wedding photographer

This is the first destination wedding that I did as the main photographer.

Holding hands

Peng & Yanhui’s wedding is very Chinese traditional.  The groom started preparing at groom’s home.

The following picture shows a tray of nuts on the bed at the groom’s home. The tray has dates (Zao), chestnus (Li) and sunflower seeds (Zi).

“ZaoLiZi” means “To have a baby soon” according to Chinese tradition.

Then the groom went to the bride’s place to welcome the bride to his home.

The following is a picture when the groom Peng took his car to the bride’s place.

It is not easy to get the bride back (typically, the groom has to meet several challenges from bride’s relatives) but our groom is very confident.

The groom is facing the first challenge now. The bride’s sister is blocking the door.

Our groom is fighting very hard to get in.

Finally, the groom got in. Huuh, that’s a tough one. He is sweating after the effort.

Finally, the groom can hug the beautiful bride.

The bride did not have the shoes on yet. It is the groom’s job to put the shoes on.

Then the groom could take the bride home.  Look at the balloons and colorful papers flying at the sky!

The groom took the bride home
