I absolutely love being a part of different wedding day traditions. I think that Vietnamese tea ceremonies are among my favorite too. All the bright colours, smiling faces, and taking time to honour family past and present, it really is something I look forward to. It’s pretty obvious that Mai-Anh’s mother has been looking forward to this particular ceremony for a long time too. Look at that smile as she presents her daughter for the first time! #russellstaffordphotography#sydneyweddingphotographer#teaceremony
Many of the celebrations we photographed last year were cultural which is always a neat experience for us. The day after their wedding many of Zach and Brenda's friends, immediate and extended family filled her parent's home to take part in their tea ceremony. Here's one of my favorites of them as Zach poured tea for his parents.
Also - we just blogged our end of year post! There's one moment from every session and wedding. Check it out!
So finishing off the 2017 wedding year we had the treat of covering a beautiful Vietnamese Wedding...starting off with the tea ceremony. Kevin & Ivette were styled for the event with Ivette wearing the traditional red dress for the Tea Ceremony portion.
To end the year off, here's a look back at a highlight wedding video 💍 I did back in August of a beautiful couple and their traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony! I could not have done this without the help of my second shooter @i_sutt and editor @geekwithamouth ! To see the full video, link in my bio!
