Kelli & William had a traditional Chinese wedding tea ceremony with matching red and gold outfits as they married in Vancouver, Canada! If you didn’t know, a Chinese tea ceremony is where the bride and groom serve tea to their in-laws, parents, and other family members. It’s a way of showing respect to the elders of the family and symbolising the union of the couple. Kelli & William looked like absolute royalty throughout the whole day. Their day was blooming with red flowers along the aisle and across the altar. The couple had their daughter and their precious pet dog at their wedding too!

Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony at Brix and Mortar for Vancouver wedding

Our advice would be to not only focus on making your wedding look good but also pay attention to the dining and participation experience of the guests.

Kelli & William

Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony

This is a British-style and traditional Chinese wedding. Kelli & William were very much inspired by retro and gothic styles mixed with Eastern and Western elements. The styling is an amalgamation of lots of unique elements, which worked for the couple as it relates to their love story. Kelli & William had known each other for 14 years and had always been friends. Eventually, Kelli traveled from Shanghai to London to Vancouver where she finally settled down to stay with William. We are completely blown away by the incredible deep red wedding flower arrangements, especially Kelli's stunning bridal bouquet!

Bringing your entire close family (including pets and children) can make you feel more at ease on the day!

When our daughter walks down the aisle and presents the rings, it is the most beautiful memory for us.

Kelli & William

For the traditional Chinese Wedding Tea Ceremony, Kelli & William wore traditional Chinese wedding attire. For their civil ceremony, Kelli was in a beautiful lace wedding dress and William was in a black tuxedo with a red rose buttonhole. It is just so perfect!
