There is one very important list that every bride and groom will have to sit down and think about when they plan their wedding – the guest list. Whether it’s a small, intimate party with just family and close friends or a big, elaborate affair with extended family, friends and all their ‘plus ones’; every couple goes through the tough decision of figuring out just whom they should invite to one of the momentous occasions of their lives.
For Amanda and Brian, it was a kind of a no-brainer. Although they held their wedding in Hong Kong, Amanda spent most of her time abroad and of course, most of her closest friends were made abroad. Even though they’d spent some time apart since Amanda came back to Hong Kong, it’s testament to Amanda’s character how all her friends came to support and celebrate her marriage to Brian on her wedding day.
Amanda and Brian’s celebrations took place at the Aberdeen Marina Club, an indoor ceremony that was as beautiful as it was emotional. Amanda and Brian planned a western-style event and Amanda herself was also quite western, in terms of not changing outfits during the banquet as most Chinese brides would, and embracing the western traditions full-heartedly. As their crew, it was lovely to witness and we caught many genuine, touching, candid moments that really captured the essence of the wedding.
Congratulations to Amanda and Brian; we hope this is just the start of a very long and happy journey together – one that we think their friends will be alongside ever step of the way!
