Ken and Eliza’s Chinese Tea Ceremony

Ken and Eliza’s wedding day was so utterly phenomenal and action-packed we’ve had to split it into two parts for fear of breaking the internet.

The day started early for us, with the morning spent carrying out the Chinese tradition of a tea ceremony before the wedding later. However, before Ken could fetch his bride he had to complete a number of different challenges set by the Bridesmaids to prove his suitability and test the sincerity of his love for Eliza.

Being blocked at the door (… or rather the entrance flap of the Wedding bell tent), Ken had to prove his worth, assisted by his “troop of brothers”. The challenges were all based on topics personal to them both including a rather wet-grassed sock wrestle (because Ken leaves his dirty socks lying around at home), food challenges and Jelly Baby delivery.

Having successfully passed his challenges and collected Eliza, everyone headed over to the Tea Ceremony where Ken’s friend was on duty to pour and wash the cups, with parents and family offering red-enveloped gifts.

Once done, both headed back to their tents to get changed for the wedding ceremony, which we’ll be showing in all its dragon-staffed glory in Part Two soon…
