Moo met Mengyuan while travelling through China, and love quickly started to work its magic… A little while later, Mengyuan decided to move over the UK to be with Moo – and they’ve never looked back! Just a few years later, Moo and Mengyuan married at the wonderful Matara Centre, “a place of beauty and tranquility.”
Mengyuan’s family made the long journey from China to the UK for the wedding, where they met Moo’s family for the first time. On the day, Moo and Mengyuan fused English and Chinese wedding traditions in a ceremony that reflected both their cultures. Not only did Mengyuan handmake hundreds of paper cranes, but a traditional Chinese tea ceremony was performed shortly after the western ceremony. The bride and groom presented tea to both sets of parents in exchange for small gifts, welcoming their new in-laws into their family.
Congratulations, Moo & Mengyuan! And thank you, Boy Called Ben Photography, for letting us share these beautiful photographs to help remember a very special day!
