Real Wedding | Hanna & Shi-Long Part 2

Here is part 2 of this stunner from 2 Brides Photography! My favorite thing about this wedding is how happy and in love these two are – it shows in every beautiful photo! So very sweet.

Words from the bride:

We wanted the guests to feel relaxed comfortable during our wedding  day. Therefore we had a buffet instead of a three-course dinner. We also did not have a strict dress code. We asked the guests to wear nice  clothes that they felt comfortable in.

Since Shille’s parents and family are from China we wanted to have Chinese  influences in our wedding. It was important to us that one could see  that there were two families from two different cultures which were  united. We did not want to get married in a church since none of us  really believe in God. Also, Shille’s family is not Christian but  Buddhists. Therefore we had a civil marriage ceremony and hired a civil  wedding officiant who came to Fåfängan. The wedding officiant wrote  himself (together with our thoughts) the wedding ceremony. First me and  Shille had to write a letter to each other where we declared our love to
each other and why we wanted to marry each other and grow old together. We were not allowed to show each other the letters. Then the letters  were sent to our wedding officiant and he started to write the ceremony.

We did not want to have too big wedding but still we wanted all of our  friends to be there on our wedding day. We came to the solution to  invite our family and closest friends to the ceremony, dinner and party. Then we invited all our other friends to attend only the party. In that way we got a very nice big party with lots of dancing, just as we  wanted.

To be able to relax during our wedding day and only think about ourselves  we asked friends to help our toastmaster and toastmadame with all the  decorations and preparations at Fåfängan. We had prepared everything  beforehand so that it would go as smooth as possible.

We really got the perfect wedding day that we wanted!
