Kelly's Wedding - Part 4

Hold on to me

Going to the new house means the prayer ceremony and the tea ceremony begins anew. While the couple was waiting for the prayer ceremony, I saw a moment where the bride held the groom's hands.

The toughest thing about wedding photography is staying alert to opportunities like this. I was glad that I noticed it. Then again, she did hold his hand for quite some time :P

Removing the veil

One of the many Chinese traditions is that the groom will remove the veil for the bride. This was a tight angle, there was no room to move about so I had to sit myself down on the floor right beside the dressing table.

Removing the coat

And then the bride will remove the groom's coat. I am sure there is a meaning to these two actions but I can't remember what. I tuned off to the "dai kam che" after a while. :P

Happy moments

And finally, the bride get to have some time with her friends and relatives. All in all, a happy day indeed. Well, that covers the wedding series. I am probably going to be serious about getting involved in wedding photography so wish me luck!

Next on Shutter Nick: Bugs? Nah, we go for bigger stuff this time around. My trip to Zoo Negara.
