A Whimsical Hong Kong Wedding by Matthew Nigel Photography

Oh my, this wedding is special – a warm and fuzzy kind of special. There are a million and one things in this wedding that are worthy of a high five. I mean, not only is it rare to see a small and intimate wedding in Hong Kong but a lunch reception full of whimsical details, mismatched bridesmaids, quirky groomsmen that’s mostly planned by the Groom? This most certainly is not the norm in Hong Kong, where a lot of couples are restricted by family and traditions and might be why I love this wedding captured by Matthew Nigel Photography so much. Besides, any couple who is up for a fist bump after saying their I dos is totally cool in my books.

The chalkboard welcome sign was designed by yours truly. Email me if you’re interested in a custom design for your big day!

Whoever said backdrops had to have your names on them was seriously mistaken. This ribbon backdrop is so pretty! More backdrop ideas here.

I can’t think of anything more romantic than being serenaded by your other half. Swoon.

I’ll never stop loving the mismatched bridesmaid look.

From the Groom, Terry: “It was a dream wedding for Kaka and myself. Both Kaka and I thought of a wedding as a party rather than anything else and we felt so blessed that we had the luxury for having a wedding without compromising too much. Whilst we love all the traditions, we chose not to be bound by them. We cared about the details but didn’t want to overdo them. It wasn’t easy at all but I thank my partner for making this happen together. We loved every moment of it and all the effort we spent was totally worth it.”

From Matthew: “I am beyond blessed. I had the amazing opportunity to fly overseas to Hong Kong to shoot Terry and Kaka’s wedding. Terry and Kaka are a beautiful couple, inside and out and I I had a great time hanging out with them in Hong Kong. If this ends up being the only time I ever go to Hong Kong, I’m very glad that it all went down the way that it did. Meeting an amazing couple, exploring an amazing city, and making new friends – it was an experience that I will never forget.”
