2016 - JW💓QQ The Tea Ceremony at Suffolk House

Ching Jin Wei💓❤️  Shevin Teoh Qingqi

Tea Ceremony - The tea ceremony was conducted after the ROM ceremony starting with the groom's side followed by the bride’s side. The bride is formally introduced to the groom's family and relatives through the tea ceremony.

If the one partner of the elder couple is not able to attend the tea ceremony, the other partner will drink on behalf of the absent spouse. Do note that tea is not poured out for a deceased spouse.

Serving the Tea - During the ceremony, the bride will stand to the right of the groom. The bride will serve the tea facing the male elder, while the groom will serve facing the female elder. The bride and groom will bow or knee to the elders and greet them properly while serving them tea.

The bride would address her spouse's family members and relatives the way he would and vice versa. It would be embarrassing if you cannot address the elders properly. Be sure to consult your parents prior to the tea ceremony.
