Kelly Tandiono, daughter of Mr Singgih Tandiono and Mrs Francesca Nugroho, and Massimo Mantero, son of Mr and Mrs Maurizio Mantero, held their pre-wedding ceremony at Alto Restaurant and Bar in the Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta. The prewedding event started with a tea ceremony in the evening followed by a formal seated dinner. A quintessential part of every Chinese wedding, the Chinese tea ceremony is an ages-old tradition that represents the formal introduction of the couple to their respective families and demonstrates respect to their families for all the years of love and care. For the ceremony, the couple opted for contrasting custom wardrobes by qipao maestro Adrian Gan. Kelly looked adorable in a white halter-neck sleeveless jumpsuit and long tulle cape with gold embroidery, while Maurizio wore a black, floor-length, long-sleeved kaftan robe with mandarin collar and gold tiger embroidery. The occasion was attended by family members and close friends who were dressed in oriental-inspired outfits.
