The love story of the couple with warmth and elegance
Fetching of the bride
One of the most important Chinese wedding traditions is the ceremony when the groom fetches the bride usually from the bride’s family home.
Before the groom can claim his bride, he, with this troop of groomsmen, undergoes a series of tests in the form of fun games to demonstrate his love for the bride.
Jenny and her creative team help gather your wedding party, throw in ideas during the design and coordinate the games that speak of the couple's love story with class and significance.
We can assist the bridal party or lead as necessary to ensure this piece of Chinese tradition is smoothly conducted in both Chinese & English. It is also fun and safe and will fit your busy big-day schedule!
If you would like someone professional to look after you and prepare your bridal party for a good start of the day (to ensure all games are well designed and safe and create some loving stories for everyone to remember for a lifetime while keeping everyone in check, stress-free, on time and support your photographer and videographer so they can take all the nice footages that worth millions for you) a fetch the bride specialist will be your safe companion to start your planning journey.
Chinese Tea Ceremony
In Chinese culture, the tea ceremony is a significant tradition for the bride and groom to pay respect and show gratitude towards their parents for all the years of nurture and love. In turn, the family will bless the newlyweds as they marry as husband and wife. The tea ceremony also symbolises the bride and the groom officially belong to a new, extended family. During the ceremony, the bride and groom will address the relatives with their new titles while serving them tea. Each ingredient used in the tea symbolises different meanings and blessings.
All Chinese tea ceremony service covers:
Professional styling and planning advice, decorations and tools, including kneeling and back cushions, luxurious china tea set, premium grade and organic ingredients for the wedding tea and pack down after the ceremony concludes.

Civil Celebrant / Interpreter & Translator
Weddings are wonderful occasions that bring people together, especially two families and sometimes even two different cultures. But it is difficult to accomplish a sense of unity if half the crowd has no idea what is going on in your wedding! Your guests who took the time to attend your wedding should be able to have the pleasure of enjoying all the romantic sentiments of the wedding ceremony with the bride and groom.
Jenny is experienced in working alongside with religious or civil celebrants, to translate and host the full or selective part of the ceremony and coordinate the guests for the formalities from entrance to the group photo moments. She ensures the smoothness and harmony of your wedding ceremony, a true unity of the two.
Since mid December 2022 Jenny has become a fully qualified Commonwealth-registered civil celebrant, so not only she can do it all but with almost 10 years of working closely with the industry best celebrants, her experience is truly unique, just unparalled.
Yes, now you can imagine the impossible, a multilingual civil celebrant who can gracefully and effortlessly switch between 3 languages, simply because she speaks the 3 languages, everyday!
