A Riverside Wedding With A Relaxed Take On Tradition

This riverside wedding in Oxford, England is the perfect blend of relaxed fun and classic traditions. The couple, Ed and Kelly, found ways to incorporate the bride’s Chinese heritage into the day, from throwing colorful rice at the end of the ceremony to giving little baijiu (a type of Chinese alcohol) glasses out to their guests for their Chinese style toasts.

But, Kelly also rocked a delicate beaded Jenny Packham gown and black leather-jacket ensemble, which kept things looking chic and modern. From the boat ride the entire guest list took to the reception to the bridesmaids’ floral dresses and the Lego cake topper, this wedding is full of steal-worthy details. See all the beautiful moments from their big day in the slideshow ahead.
