Wedding at Stallmästaregården
The wedding couple
Bride, groom and wedding guests outside Stallmästaregården
The wedding was a mix between Swedish and Asian customs. They had, among other things, a tea ceremony after the wedding ceremony that was an honor to be invited to photograph.
Wikipedia about teceremony: "In the traditional Chinese marriage ceremony, both the bride and groom kneel in front of their parents and serve them tea. That is the most devout way to express their gratitude. In front of their parents, it is a practice for the married couple to say, "Thank you for bringing us up. Now we are getting married. We owe it all to you." The parents will usually drink a small portion of the tea and then give them a red envelope, which symbolizes good luck. Another variant is that the bride serve tea to the groom's parents, symbolizing that she is to become a part of the latter's family."
Thank you all and cheers!
