If you don’t love Chinese weddings — you’ve never been at the Chinese wedding! This one was conducted in the Intercontinental Hotel and there were about 100 guests invited. By the way, if the number of guests is over 60, you might want to hire at least two photographers to provide uninterrupted stream of pictures from all over the place.
The classic Chinese wedding consists of several stages.
Bride and groom dress up separately, surrounded by their friends and relatives. The traditional colour of bride’s dress is red.
The next comes bride price. The maids of honour challenge the groom’s knowledge of his future wife and make fun of his male companions. The last challenge is to find bride’s shoes.
After that, young people show respect to their parents, offering them tea, and get their blessings and gifts. When traditional part is over, the bride and groom change costumes and there follows western-style ceremony with arch, vows, cake and party.

A few words from the client:
Dimas is our wedding photographer. He is absolutely the best! I actually used another well known Samui photographer for my pre-wedding pictures but he was disappointing. So on the wedding day I was actually a little nervous about the so called 'famous' photographer. However when I received the photos just a couple days ago, I was completely blown away. His work is very bright and artistic, incredibly amazing!! Everyone loves our pictures and I really can't get enough of them!! I want to thank you for taking such great pictures of us and for capturing all the great moments. I wish you can take pictures for us when we are back for anniversary a few years down the road. Highly recommended to all the friends who want to take pictures on Koh Samui!
