What better way to incorporate modern Australian culture and traditional Chinese culture than by having two ceremonies?
Sammy and Owen began their wedding celebrations with a traditional tea ceremony, with the bride donning red – a sacred colour in Chinese culture. Following this, the second ceremony took on a modern, rustic theme with a pale pink and violet colour scheme.
“The stunning ceremony location at Centennial Park provided panoramic views of the beautiful parkland,” Sammy told us. “Intimate and private, our original plan B for a rainy day gave us more than we had dreamed of.”
The beautiful ceremony was filled with love and laughter as the couple married in front of all their family and friends. The most unique part of the wedding, however, was the numerous relatives coming to their wedding all the way from overseas.
“The most amusing moment would be the dancing. We spent months practicing our dance with quite a few volunteers joining in on the group dance,” Sammy said. “Some of the dance moves looked funny, but it really lit up the night.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
