Vanessa & Phil | Chinese Wedding Door Games | UK

So Vanessa and Phil. Another episode. You saw their (incredible) engagement shoot . Their wedding preview. Now you’re seeing the Chinese door ceremony.

This was the first time I’d been asked to photograph the Chinese tradition and I felt fairly prepared. You know. How crazy could it be?

Turns out very.

The crazy/fun/laugh out loud/shocking things that poor Phil, and his good friends had to endure to win the hand of Vanessa was all in good fun. Yet, it was far from easy.

We’re talking buckets of ice cold water. Eating raw chillies. Money demands. Drinking some very questionable liquids. Eating weird spices. Phil singing, translating and yes… Gangnam style dancing.

I loved every second.
