A Ting Hun is just one of the traditions that we encounter with Chinese weddings. For some, it is just as important as a wedding and that’s why we capture it similarly—complete with portraits and family photos before the event. It also has a series of parts but to put it simply, it’s like the Filipino tradition of “pamamanhikan”.
Gifts that come in pairs are significant and there are corresponding meanings for each. There’s one for longevity and some for prosperity and fertility, among others. And once all the rites are done, the ceremony ends with a Chinese feast.
