Chinese wedding photos - in London

As China prepares to celebrate its New Year on Monday, many workers are making the journey home to see family.

But for one of the most important family occasions - weddings - more and more Chinese couples are making a pilgrimage to London for their pre-wedding photos.

It's a booming business that is bringing lots of money to the capital and a constant stream of work for photographers, both British and Chinese.

BBC News caught up with one of them, Ray Wu of JR Studio, as he went on a shoot with a couple. You can also see how the filming unfolded behind the scenes in this Snapchat story.
