Entry Description

Present contemporary wedding possibility in an unorthodox way. Taking the key elements of Chinese traditional wedding and Chinese opera, interpreted it in a modern way: red tailored cheongsam represent the essence of Chinese wedding and heavy makeup with coronet to symbolize Chinese opera. The added veil to resemble the conventional idea of wedding: dreamlike and romantic; nevertheless, veil could act as a cloak when it comes to the idea of Chinese opera. The shooting location was chosen at an old temple in order to reflect the aspect of the character.
