Yiding and Scott chose to hold their amazing Chinese wedding celebrations at Lennoxlove House in Haddington. It was the perfect spot for a day packed with jaw dropping elegance, love, fun and lots of partying.
Prepare to swoon over the stunning Yiding whose ah-mazing Alexander McQueen wedding shoes and beautiful Valentino wedding dress – incredible doesn’t come close to describing how fabulous she looked. Not to mention her gorgeous traditional tea ceremony gown and then evening attire. Yiding – seriously impressed that you managed three changes of clothes in one day so effortlessly. Your hairdresser and make-up artist was so true to his name – a real Hero.
The time we’ve spent with Yiding and Scott has shown us how much fun they are together. One of the Chinese characters used in Chinese weddings is that of ‘double happiness’. What a perfect description of a day bursting with genuine fun and emotion.
So, on with this fabulous wedding celebration…
Yiding and Scott entertained their guests with a traditional Chinese lion dance, which is believed to bring good luck and fortune. We also witnessed the traditional Chinese custom of chai ching (which literally means plucking the greens); a quest by the lion to seek the auspicious green normally ‘vegetables’ like lettuce which in Chinese called cái that sounds like fortune. It was great fun to watch (and listen to!)
Yiding and Scott’s wedding cake was topped with the special Chinese character which is used for double happiness…
And then on to the beautiful traditional chinese tea ceremony – this is where the bride is formally introduced to the groom’s family through the symbolism of the tea ceremony.
Planet Flowers had weaved their magic in the Great Hall mixing red burgundy pink and two tone nicolle roses together bringing the Chinese theme into this special room in Lennoxlove House…
Mr and Mrs Fong thank you for letting us be a part of all your celebrations. We had an amazing day with you that we’ll remember for a long, long time…
A & N x
These two were among the few who set a wedding date for 2020 and stuck to it. Yes the plans changed slightly along the way (think plan A, plan B…) but in the end celebrating their wedding in the spectacular Barnbougle Castle with their closest family and friends was nothing short of perfect and they wouldn’t have changed a thing.
To say Alie and I had been holding out for this wedding would be an understatement… Emily and Cammy you know how much we adore you (and your families). You two are so clearly meant to be. The world is, without question, a lighter, brighter and more brilliant place for you two being in it.
There has to be something even more special about a wedding day that has been re-scheduled several times. We love how, despite the plans having changed lots throughout the last few months, the one thing Catrin and David were sure about was that they want to get married.
