Surrounded by sunshine, sea breeze, and blessings from families, friends, and their lovely puppies, Chinny and Gary’s wedding takes place at One Thirty-One, a Mediterranean-style restaurant serving fine French cuisine, located in Sai Kung.
Nothing is more fantastic for a girl than witnessing her dream wedding finally coming true! With the white wedding gown hanging in front of the lovely rosy cabin, Chinny describes the wedding as a fancy scene she has dreamed of since childhood.
Chic orange interspersed with peachy and aqua blue, Chinny carefully matched the nature-tone color combination in harmony with the outdoor shore-venue to stress the natural quality and to elaborate a lovely and sweet wedding.
As nature lovers, the wedding features an eco-friendly ceremony, which makes it more meaningful under Hong Kong’s strict situation. Chinny and Gary select several organic elements including the ratton-knitted decorations, Bohemian linen curtains, and elegant earth-tone flower arrangements.
For the sake of environment protection and also, the expression of personal artistics, Chinny and Gary designed some of their wedding items, such as the sky-blue invitation letter and handmade ceramics as wedding souvenirs to dear guests.
Since the bride is also a film lover, the photographer uses the bride’s favourite Portra film stock and the discontinuing Fuji film stock with delicate pastel contour tones to convey both the warm feelings with shining fireworks and the black-and-white classic film style.
This wedding embraces so many diverse elements, showing us one of the most fashionable lifestyles that integrate the eco-friendly idea into artistic creation.

Lucy and Chris’s wedding registration venue finally falls on Cotton Tree Drive, one of the most in-demand historical and romantic sites in Hong Kong. Despite it is under the Covid-19 situation, this lovely couple shows us that the most valuable thing in the wedding is their beautiful love.
With the witness of the historic architectures and woods, Chris steps closer to Lucy. It is a simple, but a delicate ceremony with the newlyweds vowing their commitments and bathing in the scattering pedals.
Next to the cotton tree drive wedding registry is the iconic renovated Murray Hotel. Designed by the British modernist architect Ron Philips in 1969, Murray Hotel is famous for its stylish three-storey arches and large recessed windows, through which the sunlight filters into space.
Later Foster + Partners has redesigned the fabulous architecture, to create a dialogue between the old and new, by reserving the primary classic frame and embracing some modern urbanism elements.
Connecting the building base with Hong Kong Park and the Botanical Garden, the seamless design creates a sound and calm space for the couple to take wedding photos under pandemic conditions, which means they can both keep their distance from the crowds and enjoy the sense of open space.
The Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry provides an ideal venue for the couple to record their romantic moments.
Lucy loves photographing, so she takes candid photos of her beloved husband with a vintage compact camera. Photographer Amy records the candid shoots behind them and makes some photos in the black-and-white form to create an elegant chic style of classic romance films.
The simplest, the sincerest. Under the COVID-19 situation, we find that the most romantic wedding comes from the genuine love.
