We were meant to be together: Bickay and Bazz celebrate Chinese Irish wedding


Bickay and Bazz’s Chinese Irish wedding on October 21, 2017 was born from the bride’s desire to recognise her cultural heritage.

“We had a traditional tea ceremony in the afternoon to pay respects to the elders in our families,” recalls Bickay, 33. “I wore a traditional Chinese red wedding dress … and was gifted ornate gold bangles and lucky red envelopes by my elders to congratulate us.”

Their ceremony and reception took place at the one venue, Tinakilly Country house in Rathnew, Ireland, with 183 guests. “We printed booklets to explain the different details of how we chose our ‘auspicious’ wedding date, the importance of the colour red and the meaning of the tea ceremony for our guests so that they were included as much as possible on the day.”

Bickay and Bazz, 34, cut out traditional wedding items including a cake and expensive flowers so they could put more energy into things that mattered to them, such as the music. “A former musician, Bazz was in charge of the music,” explains the bride. “Conor Deasy and Bazz sang all of the songs prior to the ceremony, which began with Bazz singing me up the aisle to Tom Brosseau’s We Were Meant to be Together.”

“I didn’t want typical wedding shoes that I wasn’t ever going to wear again so I thought these were perfect,” says the bride of her heels.

“I had Chinese fans instead of bouquets of flowers for my bridesmaids, who wore dresses with an oriental flower print,” explains the bride.
