The culmination of the ceremony at the Register of Marriage, the ceremonial wedding gifts exchange and the hair combing ceremony in a brillant and happy wedding day itself.


very matching apparels worn during the "hair-combing ceremony.  

the table set for the hair-combing ceremony.

the father held the head while the mother cited the good wishes and "comb" the hair.  

the "4 golden flowers" of the Chan clan.. they have close bonding with each other since small. 

the arrival of the groom and little YZ became the center of attention while he was cajoled with a big angpow to open the car for the groom.

mission successfully accomplished and the groom arrived with his entourage....

to be greeted with the bridemaids and friends..testing begin....

with a welcome cocktails of all drinks sweet, bitter, spicy and sour.  

followed by "tasty" sandwiches.

after a few more rounds of teasing and tricks, the groom finally was able to enter the house and met the father and mother-in laws. 

while the bride waited patiently upstairs.... 

Groom:  "a peek at my beautiful bride"

  1. I love their traditional styled wedding ceremony at home. All these fetch-brides, heng-dai torture rituals and tea ceremony are often more jovial with laughters!

    It is nice that the bride wore the Chinese costume at home and that fits the whole ceremony well. I had never seen other brides who wore this way. Kudos to their brilliant ideas and I am sure the Chan ancestors are happy with blessings for them all.

  2. I was surprised too when she decided to wear the kua instead of bridal gown but altogether it was a beautiful event. Thanks
