The day has finally come. Bride and Breakfast HK is here! Witnessing how B&B has become an integral voice in the Philippine wedding industry in the past five years, I can’t help but feel excited for what we can bring to Hong Kong. There is an amazing pool of creative talent in this city, both couples and vendors alike, and we can’t wait to showcase them all here and provide inspiration to all of you soon-to-be brides.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Merryl. I quit the corporate world a year ago to pursue the creative life. I’m married to a wonderful man named Jon who is the most passionate photographer I know, and we have a sweet little yorkie named Henri. I’m a fan of all things lovely and uniquely beautiful. And just like you, I can never get enough of weddings.
I got married almost exactly a year and a half ago, and as I look back at our wedding day, I still get butterflies in my stomach. I completely understand why people say it’s the best day of your life. There’s just something so incredibly special about family and friends coming together in a beautiful place, wearing their best clothes, and celebrating with a lavish meal to support your lifelong commitment to the person you love most.
But a perfect day doesn’t come easy. The process of planning every single wedding detail can be so overwhelming that you lose sight of what the celebration is really about. I must admit that my motivation in putting so much work into making our wedding picture perfect was, at least in part, to meet social expectations. It was only after that I realized that, social pressures aside, the beautiful things that make up a wedding should be appreciated because they are in fact tangible expressions of the infinite beauty of marriage. Weddings should be made beautiful, because there are few things in life that are more beautiful than marriage.
And that is my hope for Bride and Breakfast HK — that as we bring you the best wedding inspiration to make your wedding planning a breeze, you will be at the same time reminded to celebrate that which matters most.
I’m over-the-moon excited to begin this journey with you!
