Marriott Hotel Canary Wharf Wedding

Ruth & Chun - 26th August 2014

Marriott Hotel, Canary Wharf, London
Yi-Ban Chinese Restaurant, London Docklands

Ruth earmarked us for her wedding way back in 2008, long before Chun had proposed, after we'd photographed her friend Cat's wedding to Paul. In fact we can trace 8 of our 9 Chinese weddings back to Cat and Paul so it was lovely to sit next to them and their beautiful little girls during the banquet.

We arrived in Dagenham for the early morning door games. We've witnessed these many times before but these were particularly brutal and if you're of a sensitive disposition, we'd suggest you look away now. They included waxing strips, chillies, whips, women's underwear, wasabi paste mixed with nutella, an ice bucket and some acts which when viewed from a certain angle would have you arrested. After paying a considerable sum of money to the girls, Chun was eventually allowed in to see Ruth and start the first of 2 tea ceremonies.

The actual wedding was followed by a brief walk around Canary Wharf where Chun appears to have worked in most buildings!

In the evening we enjoyed a fabulous banquet, some emotional speeches, all capped off with MC Danny (he was superb, more game show host than MC) leading the toasts which were incredibly enthusiastic.

"Words cannot describe those photos ... we have just watched the slideshow twice over ... and if it wasn't past midnight, we would watch it over and over again ... Whilst watching the slideshow, both Chun and I looked at each other and wondered 'How on earth did you both capture those moments?' You guys were completely invisible, but yet you weren't, if you get my drift? These photos have made me laugh, cry, laugh, cry and laugh even more. Such great photos, in fact, the word 'great' does not do these photos justice. They're just brilliant photos which I cannot wait to share with my family and friends. You both have been so wonderful to work with and played such a big part on our wedding day. We are so glad that you got to 'sign' our wedding guest book and shared this wonderful day with us. We hope our paths will cross again one day! Thank you so much xxx"

"We both would like to say a huge thank you to you both! You both did such a tremendous job on the day that we both are eternally grateful. We cannot thank you enough. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
