Wedding Tea Ceremony – The Elders

Wuan and I had registered our civil marriage in 2007. Many of my relatives in Penang do not know of that. The wedding banquet held recently was to bring our relatives from both sides of the family together, inform them of our marriage and personally introduce ourselves to them. The highlight of the occasion was the traditional wedding tea ceremony that preceded the dinner.

    Wuan says thank you! This is only Part 1. More to come…

  2. Pete, congrats to the both of you! Very nice pics. I also like the texture effect — what did you use?

    Thanks Michael. It is canvas texture. 🙂
