In Chinese tradition, the groom needs to pick the bride up at his house before the dinner party (Door Game). At that time, I just got in the car and 'GouGou' suddenly appeared next to the car. It tore me apart once I began to think I would be separated from him. There's no word that could express that moment so I just cried. 'GouGou' is ten-years-old, I played with him, slept with him, walked around the garden with him and do everything with him. It seems like I depend on him. My father always said I spoil him too much because I'm an only child and maybe I feel a little lonely. My mother says 'GouGou' has already become my little brother since we brought him home many years ago. I think many people can't understand this kind of love. But yes, I love him more than everything, directly and purely.
To describe my wedding day would be painful and joyful with lots of emotions.I stayed awake the night before the wedding day and I thought every bride would do the same thing as me. After all, you wedding day only happens once in a lifetime. Around 6:00am, everyone was coming and I was getting ready for the exciting, crazy day.
The most favourite part of my wedding day was the moment in the picture as it was such an emotional moment for me & of course when my father led me to the groom at the hotel.
We didn't actually know Allen before we hired him. We found him through our wedding agency and he proved to be the perfect choice. Our first impression of Allen was that he had a special hair style, wearing glasses, black suit, and with a huge camera. I thought he must be a careful, patient and honest man. Allen is a great wedding photographer, he appeared at almost every scene, every second and finally got the 'Family Love' pictures.
