Scotland seeks to attract Chinese wedding couples

Scottish tourism chiefs are trying to attract more Chinese couples to tie the knot in the country.

That’s according to The Herald newspaper, who report that Scotland’s stunning scenery could well lend itself to the growing trend amongst Chinese brides and grooms to have photographs taken unique places.

The news follows our report from last week that British people have been captivated by the story of Legend Liang and his new wife Carmen, who travelled all the way from Guandong to Preston for their post marital holiday.

National and local newspapers have published their honeymoon photographs, set-against the backdrop of both historic buildings and modern developments.

Legend and Carmen’s unusual choice of the industrial city of Preston can be explained by the fact that Legend used to study in the city, and was keen to introduce the area to Carmen.

They also visited Brighton, Edinburgh and London during their trip.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Legend said:

“Preston is a very important place for me.”

“I wanted to show my wife where I studied, where I lived in Whitendale Halls and on Fishergate, and how lucky I was to have the opportunity to live in a lovely small city which had an international perspective.”
