Green T. House, Beijing, China Marriage Ceremony photography of the bride and groom at the altar holding hands
The wedding ceremony was a great success and the guests cheered.
The first time I met the new couple of this wedding was in a 798 restaurant in Beijing. The background of their growth is not simple. Kalan, the groom, is a Bermuda (UK) American hybrid, born in Papua New Guinea, grew up in Pakistan, Israel, Albania, Italy, and the Philippines. Amelia, the bride, is Persian, born in Hong Kong, grew up in China Mainland. For new people with such a complex life background, which cultural tradition should they choose as the wedding theme? The answer is none of them because they want to have a wedding that doesn’t belong to any kind of cultural gene. They think that those weddings with luxurious dresses and luxurious cloth but passing by according to the book are not attractive to them.
The wedding took place at the Green T. House in Beijing, China. It was a wedding in which the whole family participated, and each family member contributed his intelligence. The cake was designed by Amelia’s mother and decorated with peony flowers. Kalan’s mother helped find and decorate the wedding venue, which the two families spent the whole day. Amelia’s cousin, a graphic designer, designed invitations and flow sheets.
Amelia’s sister made the table card and provided support. Kalan’s sister is a singer. She sang at the wedding and acted as the host of the party. Kalan’s other sister produced a slide show at the party about their childhood and the scene of proposing. Another cousin of Amelia was responsible for guiding the guests to use a Polaroid instant camera to take photos and made check-in cards. Even Amelia’s younger sister, who is less than 10 years old, also helped in every link. The whole family devoted so much energy and effort. It was undoubtedly a valuable treasure for the new couple!

Amelia would like to choose a special and meaningful dress as her wedding dress, so when the bride’s mother showed her the gift that her great grandmother wore at her wedding in 1900, Amelia was shocked – it was so beautiful! The fabric is made of pure gold decorative materials with complex patterns by hand. Amelia made her wedding dress with a little modification.
The bride's and groom's mothers were peeping on the guests before the ceremony.

The main process of the ceremony is the guest’s message, prayer, and recitation accompanied by elegant music. It is solemn, ethereal, and warm. At that moment, you could feel calm in your heart.

The new couple hung pictures of their parents, grandparents, and their loved ones on the tree, which they thought can express their respect for their ancestors in the family and got the blessing of their relatives who couldn’t visit the scene in person. The new couple especially liked to take photos with their parents when they were married. So an idea popped up to my mind, why not take some photos with the same actions as the people in the photos.
