A quintessential tradition for every Chinese wedding, the Chinese tea ceremony is an age-old tradition that represents the formal introduction and marriage of the couple to their respective families and demonstrates respect to their families for all the years of love and care. So on the morning of her wedding, this lovely Bride dons a silk robe while getting ready to wed her love, sips tea and finds a quiet moment to read a letter that her mum wrote to her to send her off on her new beginning. She’s surrounded by delicate silk textures and pops of ruby tones symbolic of luck and prosperity that her new life with her love will bring.
