Gerong Phuntsok, thirty, and Dawa Drolma, 26, each grew up in the Tibetan part of China's Sichuan Province. Their unconventional pre-wedding ceremony photographs grew to become a nationwide hit on social media.
Without having wedding gowns and fits, they rather attempted to capture conventional and contemporary aspects of existence in China. In this photo, they are witnessed wandering on the Chengdu Worldwide Fiscal Square in slick suits.
The photos have been initially posted on WeChat, a well-liked quick messaging tool in China. The state-run Xinhua news company reported they have been witnessed by 80% of WeChat consumers.
The couple left their own hometowns soon after graduating from high college. They now live and operate in Chengdu, a main city in western China.
Deeply linked to the Tibetan culture that they grew up with, they really feel anything is missing in their new urban existence, Gerong explained.
As a outcome, they went to their homeland to shoot their pre-wedding images -- a popular ritual in China. In this photo, the couple dress up in classic Tibetan robes in front of the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Area.
Although they really feel deeply linked to where they grew up, the couple said they would find it strange to return after many many Holidays Travel years away.
Through the photos, they want to send the message to young Chinese that as long as they will not give up pursuing their dreams, home is wherever they are.
In this photo, the couple are taking corn kernels off the cob in Gerong's hometown of Garze in the Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture.
