Francis Lee & Acquersine Wong Wedding

This lovely couple are from Singapore. In Singapore,an old tradition is follow accordingly. Usually tea ceremony will happen at bride’s house and then followed by at bridegroom’s house. What I experience in Singapore is the other way round. The bridegroom will pick up the bride to the bridegroom’s house for tea ceremony and then only goes back to bride’s house for tea ceremony.

This is actual old tradition which still a practice in Singapore. Due to this traditional matter, we have to wake up at 5am in the morning and get ready for the bridegroom to arrive at 7am for pick-up. This indeed is the earliest wedding ceremony I have photographed so far.

Acquersine Wong wore traditional Chinese wedding gown called “Kwa” which still a practice among Chinese Wedding Ceremony. Unfortunately often we can see bridegroom in traditional costume which many photographer wanted to photographed including me. During the dinner, Francis wore a “James Bond” jacket with a elegant bowtie.

As you can see in the picture, when the bridegroom pick-up the bride in the morning, an red umbrella is a must. This is also a traditional practice which have forgotten among most of the Chinese wedding ceremony. The red umbrella is used to shield the bride as the opening of the umbrella will symbolize her bringing many descendants to the groom’s family.
