It could not have been a more perfect sunhine Spring day for the wedding of CG Bridal client, Elaine to Noel.
A marriage of two continents, China and Jamaica unite set atop the stunning London panoramic view, including a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony. The latter, a first for Clariscia to experience. CG truly had her, work cut out, as the bride was in her fifth month of pregnancy.

An unfussy neatly edged veil completed the brides ensemble.
