Bride and groom crying on stage after speech

Martin + Vi | East London wedding photography

One of our biggest joys as wedding photographers is that we get to celebrate cultures from around the world. For us, a wedding is a gateway to celebrating cultures and the traditions and customs that communities hold so dear to them.

We love learning the variety of customs and traditions celebrated in weddings to welcome a union. For Martin + Vi, it was all embracing the epic Chinese Wedding banquet. A lavish 10 course affair filled with symbols of abundance, purity, peace and unity. The celebration spilled over speeches where both the bride and groom expressed their emotions about what this day means to them.

It was a joyous occasion and we loved capturing the celebration between the couple and their friends and family. Held in East London, the day was full of sunshine and smiles.

In the end, we joined the raucous cheers on every table with Martin + Vi too!
