Early August, I took Angela and Eric to Shing Mun reservoir for an engagement photo session. And two months later, I was the wedding photographer for their big day. A Chinese wedding normally works on a busy schedule. Traditionally, the bride and the groom would start the ceremony a night before the wedding. They would then wake up early to get ready. For the photographer, normally would start the coverage at 7:30 am. A full day runs till 11pm. So for the photographer, it’s not an easy job. Neither it is for Angela and Eric, it was a long restless day. Even a simplified Chinese wedding, there are always tea ceremonies at the Bride’s and Groom’s home. Then travel to the marriage registry, if time is available would bring the newly wedded couple to a short photo session. Lastly to the reception with many group photos and sometimes more tea ceremonies. With all these activities in a Chinese wedding. The couple deserves a huge round of applause.

With the full day wedding run down, I knew Angela and Eric got tire after they finished the group photos at the marriage registry. I’m appreciated that they still went to have some photos taken inside the reception venue. I had a great time being their photographer! Here are some highlights on the wedding day.

It was a sunny afternoon that gave Olivia and Andy a chance to get some lovely afternoon sunlight in their photos. Their ceremony was held at Hong Kong Park Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry. There were only family members and close friends witnessing the ceremony. We had the pre and post ceremony photo session at Hong Kong Park and also Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. I used as much sunlight as possible before the sun gets blocked behind the buildings. Olivia and Andy got pretty sweaty though. Hope they didn’t mind after seeing the photos.

I’ll be shooting their reception end of Nov. Looking forward to make pretty photos for them again.

Honmi + Mathew Wedding

January 11, 2010

The last wedding of 2009 ended on a fine sunny day. The temperature was perfect for wedding. I arrived a little early to walk around at the location. It was at Sam Yuk Middle School in Sai Kung. This place is quite well known with pretty grass area and because it is out of the town. We don’t get horrible high rise buildings which would affect the pretty scene.

It was only a luncheon ceremony and reception, so it started at around 1pm and finished just before sunset. Since it was a luncheon reception, so everyone felt more like a small gathering with friends and family. The outdoor area allowed the children to have a little fun too.

The most amazing thing on the wedding was the Bride. Of course, as usual the Bride must be amazing, because she’s the focus on the day. But no, not that because she has the amazing gown or she looks pretty. Well, she of course is pretty, but not just that. It is what she did for her wedding. The details were all created by herself, with the help of her friends. All the decorations and ideas were put together beautifully. I thought she works as one of the wedding vendor not until the maid of honor told me it was just her own hobby. Wow…so amazing what she did.

Although the couple was a little shy sometimes, but the day went well. Thanks for the pretty weather and the pretty details. Enjoyed it so much.

Make-up: Eunice Fan (contact her at eunice_makeup[at]yahoo.com.hk)
Cake: Cake2
Dress: Annie Lin (Bride’s cousin currently stopped designing. She might be back. So look out!)
Venue: Sam Yuk Middle School Sai Kung (三育書院)

A full day wedding photo shot on a cloudy day. It was a very cool day with a sudden drop of temperature from 20+ to 16 degree. Though it didn’t cool down the hot couple and their bridesmaid and groomsmen. Here’s a preview.
