Bec and Ivan were married in a small ceremony at Eden Gardens, Sydney on the 8th day or the 8th month of the Chinese lunar calendar. It is Chinese tradition to choose auspicious dates for important life events such as marriage to bring luck and good fortune.
Bec and Ivan wanted to acknowledge their families’ cultural traditions but also celebrate their way with friends. So, their wedding day (a Thursday) began with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony followed by their legal ceremony and small reception. Their big celebration was planned for the following Saturday. A real marriage festival!
