Chinese Lion Dancers Become the Talking Point at Wedding in Mallorca
Chinese weddings are rich with formality and traditions. At Scarlett Entertainment, we pride ourselves on having provided the entertainment for various Asian weddings over the last decade, and specifically the entertainment for a Chinese wedding held in Mallorca this year, after which we received praised by both wedding planners and the newlyweds.
The couple and their wedding planners got in touch with our Business Development Manager Xabier Garces and shared with him what they had in mind for the bridal entrance and the wedding ceremony.
Aiming to follow tradition and bring a cultural element from the bride’s country of origin, the couple opted for Chinese lion dancers to celebrate their special day. The island of Mallorca was the chosen setting for the bride and groom to tie the knot.
Two lions and four drummers flew from Paris to Spain to perform at the wedding. Firstly and as tradition dictates, our Chinese lions accompanied the couple as they made their grand entrance into the reception. After the ceremony, the newlyweds got to ‘feed’ the lions with lettuce before all their guests and received a scroll with calligraphy, which is a symbol of good fortune and prosperity.
Wedding guests were seen taking photos of the bride and groom feeding the lions, posing for photos at the entrance of the wedding venue and during dinner and interacting with our performers in a number of ways.
Chinese lions are a symbol of China, and they are believed to bring good luck to people. A popular choice among couples getting married, they’re the perfect choice for brides and grooms who wish to keep tradition alive.
