An Intercontinental HK wedding for Scarlette & Eric – there are few venues in HK with better views than the Intercon in Tsim Sha Tsui.
All the events were held at the Intercontinental which made for some stunning photos. After the tea ceremony the main wedding ceremony was held on the terrace overlooking Victoria Harbour. A mini tropical storm didn’t stop us and although it was very windy (see the pics below!) the rain held off which was magic.
The wedding banquet was held in the ballroom downstairs and after that we headed back to the penthouse terrace for cocktails and a quick dip in the pool.
Stunning views from the day can be seen below…
Amazing location for Kennis & Tim’s Gold Coast Hotel Wedding, taking place at the Gold Coast Hotel & Gold Coast Yacht Club.
We started the day with some brilliant games before the Chinese Tea Ceremony – the Pringles Chips on the nose was by far the best!
The main wedding ceremony was held at the Gold Coast Hotel gardens. These are some beautiful, quiet and hidden gardens on the marina overlooking some pretty amazing super yachts.
The evening banquet was held at the Gold Coast Yacht Club, which provides stunning food. Some great speeches were topped off with a brilliant flash mob performed by Kennis & Tim’s friends. Take a look at these great moments and more below…
I had such a blast capturing Jas & Joe’s Shek O Country Club wedding. It was an amazing occasion – fun, laughter, tears and quite a bit of dancing!
With all of the events being held at Shek O Country Club and no traveling around HK, the pressure to get everyone in the right place at the right time was off! We started the day with the bridal party arranging the flowers which made for a lovely personalised touch.
After a quick swim we proceeded with the Chinese Tea Ceremony and then got changed for the main event.
Wonderful entrance for Jas coming down the steps to the lawn where the ceremony overlooked the South China Sea. After the ceremony we managed to sneak away for 10 mins to get some great bride and groom photos on the coast.
The evening food was fantastic and lovely, heartfelt speeches led into what I consider to be the main event – the dance floor, where the antics were off the wall!
We ended the night at The Wanch in Wan Chai where Jas & Joe are often playing with their band & Joe made a special appearance on the drums!
Incredible day and although at the end of it I was exhausted, I was smiling about it for weeks afterwards :)…
A beautiful day for Charmian & Tyler’s Beas River Country Club Wedding.
Great scenes in the morning with ‘The Games’ before the Chinese Tea Ceremony – I especially loved the Hat / Grape / Polo Mint game which can be seen below… hilarious!
After the tea ceremony we headed to HKJC Beas River Country Club for the main event. Que a beautiful entrance by the kids and then Charmian & her Dad had everyone in tears.
After the ceremony we headed up the lawn which looked stunning with the light curtain – ready for Charmian & Tyler’s entrance.
Some wonderful speeches and great dance moves topped off an unforgettable day for all.
The stunning Malaiwana Villa on Nai Thon Beach, Phuket was the venue and my first as a Phuket wedding photographer.
With all the family flying in from HK and overseas this was such a special occasion. We started with some wonderful getting ready shots at the venue with the girls & boys. The games before the Chinese Tea Ceremony were brilliant and I had such fun capturing these moments. Then we got ready for the main event – the ceremony.
Located on top of the infinity pool it was a magical location, with the sun setting on beautiful Nai Thon Beach below.
In the evening the banquet started outside under an array of fairy lights. It looked incredible and the staff at Malaiwana Villa did themselves proud. A huge thunderstorm didn’t dampen spirits as we headed inside to carry on the party.
The night ended with everyone in their finest clothes jumping into the pool! A brilliant end to an unforgettable day on the shores of the Andaman Sea…
Malaiwana Villa, Nai Thon Beach, Phuket, Thailand.
A lovely location right in the heart of Hong Kong for The Murray wedding banquet of Bonnie & Wilkins.
The soft light in The Murray guest suites make for wonderful photos and we started the day here with Bonnie & Wilkins getting ready.
After that we headed downstairs to the ballroom for the banquet. Great entrance with B&W taking centre stage under the spot lights. The food was superb as always at The Murray and after the banquet we took our time taking some photos on the Cotton Tree Drive walkway.
I had a lovely day and great captured some great moments for Bonnie & Wilkins as they celebrated with friends and family.
Danielle & Matt’s wedding at the Shek O Country Club looked right over the South China Sea and I can’t imagine a more stunning location in HK than this.
We started the day at Matt’s place with the boys getting ready & then I headed to the Salon to catch up with Dani & the girls.
The wedding ceremony was at the St. Stephen’s Chapel a beautiful little church in Stanley. I loved the shots outside the church and especially the bag piper – who was the same piper as I had at my wedding in 2013.
The evening festivities were held at the Shek O Country Club. A beautiful venue on the cliffs overlooking the sea. The speeches were wonderful and the dancefloor action was another level – I especially loved Matt’s granny on the dancefloor!
A wonderful day at this beautiful venue was an absolute pleasure to capture…
I am lost for words when it comes to writing this blog post. Over my career as a wedding photographer these past six years I have shot nearly 400 weddings. But I can say without a doubt that this was the most beautiful, relaxing and most importantly… fun wedding I have covered in my photographic career!
I first met Jo Ann & Pascal at their Soho apartment a year ago, where they cooked me up a beautiful Vietnamese meal. We chatted away about their Topas Ecolodge Wedding. A stunning venue in the Vietnamese mountains east of Laos, Topas Ecolodge is a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World.
A year went by and I got really excited about the adventure. I took the overnight train from Hanoi, which was an adventure itself! Arriving at the venue I was blow away. Stunning backdrop in the mountains, not to mention the food & amazing staff at Topas. Many thanks to Claudia and her team for all their hard work.
We had a cracking pool party the night before the wedding and I hope there weren’t too many hangovers for the big day!
The ceremony itself was by the infinity pool with the mountains in the background. I couldn’t have asked for a better setting – but a bit of cloud cover would have been nice, we were all sweating in the 38°C heat!
After an emotional ceremony Jo Ann, Pascal & I headed off for some bride and groom pics and then down to the reception marquee. The guys from Topas Ecolodge did a fantastic job with the décor and it look stunning.
After some cracking party games (my favorite being musical chairs! – see below) we headed inside to dance the night away.
My words don’t give Jo Ann & Pascal’s wedding justice, but just to say that his has to be the best wedding I’ve ever documented… ’mic drop’.
So please enjoy the beautiful images below…
Patricia & pate’s wedding took place at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in HK which is a magnificent building tucked into the heart of HK’s skyscrapers.
After bridal prep at The Murray Hotel, I waited outside the Cathedral for the bride Patricia to arrive… but to no avail 😬!
After 15 mins we wondered if they got lost but then Danielle and her Mum & Dad appeared exhausted up the hill. The road to the Cathedral was blocked by a bus and the bridal car couldn’t get through – so they had to get out and walk the last few hundred yards uphill – quite an ordeal in a a wedding dress …but we were all there on time!
The ceremony was a very special occasion and afterwards we headed to Hong Kong Yacht Club for the wedding reception. This was the first wedding they had done since the refurbishment and it looked great. Guests had drinks on the terrace before heading inside for the banquet.
And then the dancing – I’ve never seen so many moves! The Spanish really know how to bust a boogie on the dance floor!
Thanks so much to Patricia & Pete for letting me cover your beautiful day!

It was a crazy busy 2019/20 for me – From HK to Thailand, Japan, Vietnam and the UK – so this is my first blog post in a while.
But what an amazing wedding to start the Hong Kong wedding season with! This has honestly been the most fun I’ve ever had at a Hong Kong wedding!
Rhonda & Pat were so chilled out all day and the Chinese traditions made it even more special.
We started with getting ready at Rhonda’s place waiting for Patrick to pick up his bride. After a few shots in the park we headed to The Peak Lookout on The Peak for the main event.
The Peak lookout is a beautiful venue nestled high on The Peak in HK overlooking Island South.
All Patrick’s friends and family came to whiteness their marriage registry and afterwards enjoy the banquet. The speeches were beautiful …and then cam the dancing – wow I must have danced my socks off.
An amazing occasion and I wish Rhonda & Pat all the best for the future!
Check out their big day below…
