Even though a lot of couples do their engagement ceremony on the day of their wedding, my fiancé and I wanted to do it earlier (around a year before our wedding), and have a separate event to truly honour the Chinese wedding tradition of the tea ceremony process. Instead of rushing through it or just going through the motions, we wanted to have a separate private and meaningful ceremony with just our family at home, following all the proper traditions of the Chinese tea ceremony. Watch our engagement day unfold here through photos and through film below!
