Xu had four bridesmaids and a flower girl. She chose her friend Shan Shan, her future sister in law Annalea and Louis’s cousins Lucy and Eliza as her bridesmaids. The three bridesmaids wore silvery-grey coloured dresses. The chief bridesmaid’s dress was bought from China when Xu got her wedding dress, and the other three dresses came from a high street department store.
All girls wore silver coloured sandals bought from Debenhams and protected themselves from the spring chill with white fake fur wraps, secured with pearl buttons.
