I have a confession to make: I am a big sucker for beautiful wedding gowns. There is just something quite magical when the bride puts it on, and what a treat is it for me to swoon over Ben and Christy’s Hong Kong wedding! If these two look familiar, it’s because we gushed over their garden wedding in Vancouver a few weeks back. Just like their overseas celebration, the dashing couple was absolutely radiant on their special day with family and friends in Hong Kong. Christy was pure and utter perfection in that to-die-for embellished Marchesa wedding dress, and her bridesmaids were visions of beauty in their exquisite ensembles. I could go on and on about how pretty this affair really is, but I suggest you take a good look at these photos taken by Edmon Leong instead! Enjoy!
Who ever said that you need a long flowy dress, a big bouquet of flowers, and a sharp suit to make an engagement session work? Today’s featured couple, Matthew and Esther, proves to us that there are no rules to break when you stay true to your personal style. This confident pair’s minimal outfits are a breath of fresh air from the overly-romantic styles that have become the norm. And let’s be honest, with a serene and breathtaking backdrop like Shing Mun Reservoir, you really don’t need much more. Well, that plus a talented photographer like Jan Leung of Feel in the Blank who can do everything justice, then you’re definitely set.
Marchesa is what defines a modern-day princess for me. They never fail to impress with their ultra-sophisticated and feminine designs. There’s no doubt that they are one of the most influential labels in the wedding industry, and we can totally see why with their latest bridal collection. It’s got everything we could ever ask for — intricate embellishments, flowing fabrics, flattering silhouettes, and a generous sprinkling of pure magic.
Marchesa is available in Hong Kong through Central Weddings.
What’s better than getting lai see? Getting lai see in pretty designs, of course! For your wedding day, why not make personalized red packets for your bridesmaids and groomsmen? It’s a thoughtful gesture that is both practical (can’t really mix up color-coded and personalized envelopes) and easy to make. You can also make some extra ones for your reception table and wow your guests. Let’s get on it!!
You will need:
- A4 sized paper in different patterns and/or colors (medium thickness)
- Glue stick, cutter, scissors, cutting mat, ruler, and a printer
1. Download and print this template onto the backside of your colored A4 sheets.
2. Cut the template out but cutting along the solid lines.
3. Cut a slit along the dotted lines with your cutter using your ruler as a guide.
4. Fold along the dashed lines starting with the small left side flap.
5. Fold and glue the right flap onto the left flap.
6. Fold and glue the bottom flap up.
7. Fold and insert the top flap into the slit.
Here’s what they should look like:
To personalize your lai sees, add some fun calligraphy using metallic pens.
Hope you have fun making your red packets, and please don’t forget to be generous! 🙂

Any day is a lovely day for an engagement shoot, and your day is about to be made far lovelier with this beautiful spread of Winnie and Will. I am truly still floored by the sweetness and simplicity. Not to mention Winnie is just a dream in every single dress. I must say that each and every stunner by Joyel Lee is my favourite (though I’ll admit I returned to that gorgeous off-shoulder mermaid gown more than three times). We’ve been seeing a lot of Korean-style engagements such as this one lately, and with these dreamy photos by Plitvice, it’s easy to see why.
