Walk up to the lodge to sign-in on our guest book, get a Hada (white or yellow coloured silk scarf of blessing) from the reception and grab a drink (sorry no alcohol as this is a very family-friendly event, and we are tea drinkers): 请在门口签到,并领取一条白色或黄色的哈达,欢迎自取饮料(抱歉没有酒水提供哦),饮料单如下:

Feel free to tour around this heritage building that stood since 1934. It was built as a country retreat for hunting by Lieutenant Governor Eric Hamber (and apparently Queen Elizabeth stayed there at one time). There is a beautiful Japanese Garden with a vibrant red bridge over a pond, right across the fountain from the lodge. A short walk down the hill will lead you to a picnic area that overlooks Minnekhada Marsh, and many of the nature trails throughout the Minnekhada Regional Park. 如果有时间,您也可以参观这个1934年建造的历史建筑。这个山庄是当初为了方便省长Eric Hamber外出打猎而建造的行宫,据说伊丽莎白女王也曾经到访过这里。喷泉对面是一个小而美丽的日式花园,池塘上架着红色的小桥。沿着来的路走下坡,您会来到一个野餐区,那里可以看到Minnekhada湿地和几条Minnekhada公园里的步行道。


4:30-5:00pm  ceremony 典礼

The wedding ceremony takes place in the garden with majority of the guests standing (so be mindful of this if you are planning to wear high heels ladies). We have about 10 seats prepared for those who would like to sit. The ceremony will be moved to the lodge if the weather decides to not be nice. 典礼会在庄园对面的小花园里举行。因为时间不超过20分钟,所以我们让大家站在花园的草地上(打算穿高跟鞋的女宾们请注意哦)。我们会准备大约10个座位给有需要的宾客们。如果遇到雨天,典礼则会在室内举行。

Teresa Laverty is the registered marriage commissioner of the wedding and we are happy to have her guiding us through the ceremonial procedures. 我们很荣幸请到BC省注册婚礼师Teresa Laverty作为婚礼典礼的主持。

Michelle (Shane's sister) and Alice (Shuyi's best friend) are the bridesmaids. 伴娘团:扎西的妹妹Michelle和舒怡的闺蜜Alice。

Julian and Darryl (Shane's best friends) are the groomsmen. 伴郎团:扎西的好朋友Julian和Darryl。

After the ring exchange and pronouncement, we invite you to come up in order after the family members, to present your white Hada to the newly-weds, as a gesture of giving them your congratulations and well wishes. 新人交换戒指和宣言之后,我们邀请您跟随新人的家庭成员为新人献上哈达,表示您的祝福。

To present a Hada, first use both hands to hold the Hada horizontally in front, with palms facing up and arms wide open. Up hold both arms to shoulder height, and hang the Hada onto the newly-wed's necks. 献哈达时,用双手捧哈达,高举与肩平,然后再平伸向前,挂在新人的脖子上。

White symbolizes purity and auspiciousness like the cloud, so generally the Hada are made in white colour. There are also other colours, including blue (meaning the sky), green (meaning streams and rivers), yellow (meaning the earth) and red (meaning the protectors of the law). Hada embodies different meaning under various circumstances; it could mean good wishes, congratulations or condolences depending on whether it's a festival, a wedding, or a farewell. 藏族认为白色像云朵一样象征纯洁、吉利,所以哈达一般为白色。此外还有蓝、白、黄、绿、红;蓝色表示蓝天、绿色表示江河水、黄色象征大地、红色表示护法神。哈达在不同情况下代表着不同的意义——佳节之日,人们互献哈达,表示祝贺行日愉快,生活幸福;婚礼上呈献哈达,意味着祝愿新婚夫妇恩爱如山、白头偕老;迎宾时奉献哈达,表示一片虔诚、祈祷菩萨保佑;告别会上献哈达,是表示对去者哀悼和对家属的安慰。
