Under a rare blue summer sky on London's Westminster Bridge, Jiachun Lin poses in a flowing white lace gown and windtossed veil with her fiance Da Song.
For Chinese couples, wedding photos are not simply about having a photographer show up on the big day.
At a recent shoot, Chen Xueling, dressed in a shimmering blue dress and surrounded by opulence befitting a princess, gazed into the eyes of fiance Wang Xinfeng.
The couple had to wait for three months for a slot.
"It's worth it so that we can have these beautiful memories for the future," Chen said. "During the wedding itself, we'll put these photos on a screen."
