a perfect gift!

When it comes to planning a wedding, nothing is more important than deciding on your bridal party.  Well, maybe apart from the wedding dress.  But in a list of priorities, choosing your bridesmaids and groomsmen come pretty high.  This is perfectly understandable – aside from family, these people that you choose to stand with you are important; lifelong friends who you can rely on to make sure your big day goes well.  It goes without saying that bridesmaids and groomsmen sometimes don’t get enough recognition for the work they do; and that’s why many brides these days prepare a little gift for their bridesmaids to show their appreciation.

One of the highlights of this particular wedding of Amie and Derek was that not only did Amie prepare gifts for her bridesmaids, Derek also decided to present his groomsmen with tokens of his appreciation: personalised whisky flasks, which were very well received! If you’d like to know where Derek ordered them, this is the website to visit: Etsy

Incidentally, when Derek’s older brother got married, we also had the privilege of taking their photographs on their big day.  Derek’s brother made a short, but emotional speech to the groom that night.  One of the more memorable lines: ‘wherever there is my little brother, there I am too’, a sentiment that goes to show how deep a bond there is between the two brothers.

Previously, we had the opportunity to shoot a pre-wedding concept video, which was fun and exciting to execute – if you’d like to watch our novel way of presenting their story, visit our Facebook or website.  Of course, you can also arrange to come to our offices to see more samples of our work!  Coming up we have many more exciting projects and weddings to share with you all.  Look forward to hearing your feedback!

Vivian Luk – wedding gown

Many a blushing bride has flipped through a wedding magazine or a wedding catalogue searching for their dream wedding gown. There are wedding websites and wedding blogs dedicated to find the right wedding gown and the search can often take months. After all, it’s a hard decision to make and, rather like choosing the right husband, what bride doesn’t want to her wedding dress to be ‘the one’?

With so many choices coming from designers overseas, such as Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta, it is rather easier to forget that Hong Kong itself is a hub for creativity and couture, with many home-grown designers living and working right in the heart of the city. For examples, one of these talented designers is Hong Kong’s own Vivian Luk, who created this bride’s beautiful wedding gown. When it comes to knowledge about Chinese brides and their preferences, Vivian Luk is the expert. Based in Hong Kong, Vivian also has a unique perspective on the ever evolving fashion styles of Hong Kong.

One of Vivian Luk’s signature details are the ruffles, hand-made and gorgeous. Each curve is elegant and the material is light so that wedding gown isn’t weighed down by unnecessary weight. Of all of the wedding gowns that we have had the privilege to shoot, of course other big names are renowned for beauty, but this particular wedding gown is right at the top with the rest of them, with a wonderful emphasis on the bride’s natural figure. We very much look forward to seeing many more of Vivian Luk’s wedding gown creations on our clients.
