May and John’s wedding day at Hampton Court House, Surrey

Hey everyone!I had the incredible honor recently of capturing May and John’s beautiful Chinese/English fusion wedding at the stunning Hampton Court House. Having previously photographed their engagement shoot in the picturesque Greenwich Park, I was excited to document their special day.

A Morning of Traditions: The Chinese Tea Ceremony

The day began with a heartwarming traditional Chinese tea ceremony in the charming courtyard of Hampton Court House. Surrounded by close family and friends, May and John honored their heritage in a ceremony filled with rich traditions and deep emotions. It was truly a moving experience to witness and capture the tears, smiles, and heartfelt moments shared between the couple and their loved ones.

Afternoon Delights: English Civil Ceremony and Outdoor Fun

After a delightful interlude of sandwiches, cakes, and some group photos, we transitioned to the English civil ceremony held in the grand main hall of Hampton Court House. The ceremony was a fantastic affair, brimming with joy and love. Following the vows, we celebrated with a shower of confetti on the front steps and captured some fun group photos on the expansive front lawns.

The outdoor reception was a lively event with games like giant Jenga and Connect 4, providing endless entertainment for guests before heading indoors for the wedding breakfast. The warm applause that greeted May and John as they entered the dining hall was a testament to the love and support of their family and friends.

Evening Emotions: Speeches and Couples Portraits

After a sumptuous meal, the speeches commenced, offering a blend of humor, heartfelt emotions, and touching moments that brought laughter and tears to many. It was a joy to capture these candid reactions, showcasing the deep bonds between May, John, and their guests.

As the sun began to set, I whisked the couple away for some intimate portraits amidst the venue’s beautiful gardens. The vibrant colors of the flowers provided a stunning backdrop, perfectly complementing the couple’s radiance and love for each other.

Night to Remember: First Dance and Twilight Portrait

The evening continued with an energetic first dance, where May and John showcased their joy and love on the dance floor, followed by an epic party that had everyone dancing the night away. To cap off this unforgettable day, we created a magical twilight portrait at the front of the house, capturing the essence of their perfect wedding day.

Documenting May and John’s wedding was an absolute pleasure. The blend of Chinese and English traditions made their day uniquely beautiful, filled with stunning moments and emotional storytelling that I will cherish forever.
