D.I.Y. Flower Comb

And my obsession with flowers continues — this time with pretty silk flowers courtesy of Bunny Garden. Since outdoor shoots and easy natural looks are on trend right now, I thought this simple hair accessory would be the perfect project for all you crafty brides-to-be. Flower combs are much easier and more practical to make with silk flowers, but please make sure you go with high quality flowers. Cheap silk flowers just look cheap, so we don’t want any of that. Let’s get started!

Here’s what you will need:

  • Hair comb in various lengths, green floral tape, green floral wire, long nose pliers

  • An assortment of silk flowers and foliage (all from Bunny Garden)

Sweet Serenity

We’re starting off this week with Iris and Max’s super easy engagement session courtesy of Henry F. There’s just something so calming about the soft vintage color tone of these photos. I think it compliments the different spots they visited quite well (especially that private pier), allowing the couple’s personalities to shine through. This is as effortless as any engagement session could get, and we could only hope to see more of the same. May your Monday be as chill as this sweet set!

Fashion Friday: Noel Chu Atelier 2015 Collection

Today’s Fashion Friday feature is extra special, because we finally get to feature a Hong Kong designer! If you’ve been following our social media accounts, you would know that I’m a big fan of Noel Chu. It was a pleasure to meet someone with such experience and talent that is genuinely humble and kind. Today we’re proud to show you her latest collection that truly celebrates women’s uniqueness. Each dress in this collection has it’s own personality bundled with undeniable craftsmanship. We need no further proof to say she’s a designer we all should be proud of!

English Garden Engagement

We’re travelling back through time to an old English garden… in Hong Kong. Yes, believe it or not, this next engagement session was actually shot right here at home. Floreta and Ho’s vintage-style shoot in this enchanting rose garden is such a breath of fresh air. I love that they dared to be different — from the location, to Floreta’s Victorian dress, to the deep red florals. With Sophia Kwan behind the lens, the photos are like painted scenes from classic romantic novels. Excuse me while I go and make myself a nice cuppa!
