Shu and Dipesh’s Wedding

5th March 2017 – Bar Laffette

The CCC Lion Dance Troupe had the great pleasure to perform at the wedding of Shu and Dipesh. The ceremony was held at the elegant Bar Laffette.

When the ceremony began, the bridal party was introduced first. And when the bride and groom were introduced, the loud musical instruments played and the 3 lions escorted the newly weds down to the venue giving them the grand entrance. The lions interacted with the guests at the wedding, in which guests fed the lions lucky red packets. The lions then presented a goodluck scroll to the newly weds in blessing them in their union together.

From all of us at the CCC Lion Dance Troupe we would love to wish Shu and Dipesh all the best in their new lives together. Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of this special day.
