BEHIND THE SCENES - Chinese Wedding
Today marks the 2nd year anniversary of the day my husband and I signed our marriage papers, so I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate that than to share with you a video of the BEHIND THE SCENES action of the wedding...
I say behind the scenes, but it actually features: "get ready with me", so the hair, the dresses, the jewellery... then the games devised by the bridesmaids of which the groomsmen HAVE to pass in order to pick up the bride.
(I have to mention, the first bit of 2 guys kissing is not supposed to offend anyone or anything - the task was that the best man, who is actually my husband's brother, had lipstick smacked onto his lips, and... around the lips, he then had to "kiss" or more like transfer all his lipstick onto the groom and hold it for 18 seconds).
After the games, there is also a Chinese traditional custom that we had to partake in, and this was the giving of the tea to our elders, to show them our respect to them and to thank them for all they have taught and given us etc. The video then ends when we have all arrived at the restaurant where our Chinese wedding was held.
So I have 2 videos for you to view, the behind the scenes, and a peek at the wedding... Hope you enjoy them both! They are both filmed UNprofessionally as I really didn't want a videographer, i.e. a stranger following me around all day, so I wanted everything filmed in more of a VLOG form, just without me talking at the camera...
The last video is only viewable on certain platforms, mainly meaning, you kind of have to watch it on your computer/laptop/macbook, not viewable on phones, tablets or the AppleTV, which is seriously annoying, so I apologise for any inconveniences!
The following video is A PEEK AT THE WEDDING, this is a shorter video and shows you what actually happened at the wedding, more closeups of my dresses and just a follow the bride on the wedding day kind of video.
ONE LAST THING:
A big thanks to all of those who were there on the day, especially those who helped me get ready, it must have been a nightmare for all of you.
