There are so many key and symbolic events involved in traditional Chinese weddings that photographing these becomes a whole other experience altogether. I’ve shot enough traditional Chinese weddings in that past so I was ready for Victoria and Edmund’s tea ceremony, the bride’s wardrobe changes, bride’s gifts to the groom and much more.
What I wasn’t prepared for was the heat – they got married during one of the hottest weekends this year! Victoria and Edmund were brilliant and didn’t even seem to notice the sweltering weather conditions. I, on the other hand, totally considered shooting the entire wedding in a tank top. I didn’t, of course …but for a second or two, I was seriously tempted!
Ceremony and Reception: Shangri-la Banquet Hall and Convention Centre in Markham, Ontario
