Ching Mei and Farid at the Manchester Registry Office & Yang Sing Restaurant

Back in September we filmed one of my most memorable weddings of the year, the wedding of Ching Mei and Farid. The weather had been quite horrible the day before the wedding and the forecast wasn’t very promising, but it all cleared up and it turned out to be a beautiful day (this goes somewhat against our previous experiences in Manchester!). The wedding ceremony took place at the Manchester Registry Office, which isn’t exactly the most inspiring building we’ve ever been to, but that didn’t matter in the slightest, this wedding was all about the people. Farid and Ching Mei are without a doubt one of the sweetest couples we’ve ever come across in all the years that we’ve been filming weddings. After the short ceremony, we all walked to the centre of Manchester for a photo session at the gorgeous Victorian town hall. Ching Mei looked stunning, wearing a dress by Pronovias, I always love their designs! Her bridesmaids wore lovely grey fifties inspired dresses. After the photo shoot we then walked on to the China Town area of Manchester, to one of the best Chinese restaurants, the Yang Sing.

During the drinks reception, Ching Mei and Farid provided entertainment for their guests in the form of a caricaturist and a magician. Ching Mei then swapped her Pronovias dress for a traditional Chinese dress. And after some short but sweet speeches, the 9 course Chinese banquet was served. I have two words for that banquet: wow and yummy!!! Thank you for letting us join in, it was amazing. After dinner Ching Mei had another wardrobe change, this time to a striking long silver evening gown, perfect for dancing the night away. Three wedding dresses… dreaming away now… Anyway, here are their highlights!
