Delightful Duo

We’re starting our morning with a huge splash of color courtesy of Lillian and Esmond’s Hong Kong engagement. There’s no denying that this darling pair is absolutely smitten with each other. Everything just looked effortless and oh-so-comfortable. I am gushing over Lillian’s simple but sweet hair and makeup by Polly C. Makeup and that dreamy trellis of pink flowers they found! It’s hard to go wrong with a background as pretty as that. Thanks to Michelle W. who captured this fun-filled day, we’ve got enough eye candy to last us a long while. See it all right here.

Urban Rustic Feast

There is one thing we cannot deny about us Hong Kongers – we LOVE food! So why not bring the party to one of the hippest, coolest restaurants in Hong Kong? That is exactly what Marcus and Farah did by tying the knot at the Butcher’s Club Deli‘s trendy industrial space in Aberdeen. Captured by photographer Jon Lau, it proved to be the perfect place for an intimate gathering with the ceremony held indoors plus a rooftop reception underneath a gorgeous tent. What better way to celebrate than having amazing steak and dancing amongst Hong Kong’s skyscrapers? I’m excited to bring you, arguably, the most delicious wedding we have yet seen!
