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…

An outdoor wedding ceremony overlooking the bay in the middle of one of the hottest Scottish summers is one of life’s gifts (and perfect planning on the part of Helen and James)
Balmoral Hotel weddings have their own kind of magic. For starters you get to literally have the red carpet rolled out for you and be treated like royalty… and then (perhaps even more special) you get access to enviable rooftop views.
What could be more perfect than getting married in your garden in Edinburgh (especially when your garden has a lawn that was almost designed for outdoor parties)?
To say we’d been looking forward to this wedding for quite a while may well be the biggest understatement of the year.
