Mottram Hall Wedding Photography | Qian and Mark

Mottram Hall Wedding Photography

Today we have Quian and Marks Mottram Hall Chinese Wedding Photography to share. Qian and mark chose to spread their wedding over two days as there is quite alot to fit in at a Chinese wedding.   Some couples are just extra lovely and Qian and Mark are one of those couples.  When I first arrived at Mottram Hall wedding venue everything was so calm and organised. The boys were adding the finishing touches to the tables and the girls were starting to get ready upstairs.
Qian was so smiley and excited, so I knew at this point that it was going to be a good day.  I love photographing preparations, I love watching makeup artists and hairdressers at work and the brides face as she watches the progress in the mirror.  When Qian walked down to the ceremony room with her dad she looked so beautiful.  After the wedding ceremony Qian got changed into her kwa ready for the Chinese Tea ceremony. This is where the Bride and Groom serve tea to their parents and other family members. The elders offer words of wisdom to the couple and give gifts of money and jewelry.  Then Qian and mark had a lovely evening reception for close friends and family.  Please come back tomorrow for day two, the door games and wedding banquet. In the meantime here are a selection of our favourite wedding photos at Mottram Hall.

A few words from Mark and Qian about their wedding day

1) Day One – Tell us about your day 

Originally Mark and I were going to just have a civil wedding however we knew it would not be complete if we did not have a Chinese wedding, so we’ve decided to spread our wedding over two days. Day One was the civil wedding and we’ve chosen to get married at Mottram Hall as we fell in love with the place the first time we visited. We started our day with the civil wedding ceremony, followed by Chinese Tea ceremony and evening reception for our close families and friends. Mark and I enjoyed every moment of the day with lots of laughter (and some happy tears). It was a very special moment for us when we declared each other as husband and wife and we got to share this with our families and friends.

2) What were your most memorable moments?

Brides Answer: There were lots of memorable moments but one stood out to me was when I was walking down the aisle and the first person I saw was Mark smiling back at me. I tried to keep all the emotions inside and not burst into tears(!).

Grooms Answer: At the evening reception when I did my speech, seeing Qian’s smile as I said “I will love you forever”.

3) What do you love about being married?

Brides Answer: Get to call Mark my husband and looking forward to having many more happy memories together.

Grooms Answer: Just being happy and we’re now officially husband and wife.

4) What advice can you give for others getting married?

Brides Answer: Preparation is key so make sure to plan ahead. On the day of your wedding, enjoy every moment of it as time will soon fly by.

Grooms Answer: Budget, budget, budget! Make sure you prioritise and spend on the important things first. One of which is getting a great photographer (i.e. Joy from Beautiful Life).

5) Tell us about your favourite wedding Suppliers

A Sixpence for her Shoe – Chair covers
Airy Fairy – Cake
Amanda Jones – Hair
Eden Flowers – Flowers

6) Why did you choose Beautiful Life to Photograph your day? 

We initially discovered Beautiful Life through various photography websites and it stood out from the rest, Joy’s quality of work was amazing and beautifully captured. We stopped the search and booked Beautiful Life to photograph our two day wedding straight away. Joy was so easy to work with at our wedding and we love how she captured every special moments and every little details. Seeing the pictures on the blog brings back so many happy memories, feels like it was just yesterday that we got married! Joy, Mark and I want to give you the warmest THANK YOU for working with us and photographed these amazing photos. Without a shadow of doubt, we would definitely recommend you to anyone who’s looking for a professional photographer.
