Manman & Louis' Traditional Tea Ceremony & Beautiful Stangate House Wedding

Sunday was a wonderful day! I shot one of my first traditional tea ceremonies, and it was so so good! A morning full of laughter, happiness, excitement, love, tradition and of course, tea and gifts. You couldn't help but laugh and smile all morning as the boys performed their games, make-up application and a food "treat" of all 5 flavour types. Sweet, salty, bitter... all in one "delicious" mouthful, yum. Manman looked so stunning in her beautiful red gown, and following the ceremonies we parted ways briefly as they headed on to Stangate House to set up for their wedding ceremony.

Manman, Louis, their family and bridal party all did an amazing job of setting up Stangate House too. The dessert table and cake looked so sweet and delicious, the Vintage Bar named Miss Fisher was to die for, and the bright pops of colour spread across the garden made for a very bright and happy vibe. These two make the sweetest, cutest couple, and I couldn't be happier for them. Big congrats again to you two beautiful souls.
