Within Asian culture weddings, specifically Chinese and Vietnamese weddings, the tea ceremony is one of the most significant events as it represents an important moment in which members of both families become relatives of each other. It is an act to show respect and gratitude to parents for all the years of love and care.
Both bride and groom are expected serve tea in a gaiwan to both side of the parents and other close relatives to show respect to their families. It is a symbol of purity, stability and fertility. The purity of tea signifies the love is pure and noble; the stability of tea stands for faithful love; the fertility of tea means that the new couple will have many children.
We love to photograph this special part of our couple’s wedding day as this is a very important part of their day to them and their families. Our photos are a record and hold the memories of the joy that everyone shares as our couples celebrate their love with their families.
