Pre-wedding

Happy Friday!

No no, WAIT WAITTTTT! Before you’re going to shout congratulations, NO, we’re not married yet! As the title implies, these are the pictures of our pre-wedding photo shoot in HK.

For those who aren’t familiar with a pre-wedding, a pre-wedding photo session often takes place before the actual wedding day (our Big Day is in Sep). It’s very popular among Asians and it’s a great way to feel at ease in front of the camera. In this case, this was very handy for Wai since he’s camera shy. Another reason why we took a pre-wedding session is because we wanted to get some shots so we can show these to our wedding guests.

Anyhow, speaking about the pre-wedding pictures – it was hard to choose since we have a lot of photos, but here are some of our favourite shots of the photo shoot :) Hope you’ll like them! Have a lovely weekend! Xo

    Thank you for sharing your pre-wedding pictures! Lovely pics…the second one is my favorite! #StolenMoments

    Your dress is gorgeous…just like the bride-to-be. The way Wai looks at you in the third & ninth picture says it all. He truly knows what he has. Congratulations again on your engagement! Can’t wait to see pics from your wedding!

      Hi Abrielle! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! It made us smile! Speaking of that wedding dress…hahahaha, it wasn’t my favourite dress to be honest (I’ve rented this for the photo shoot). First of all, I don’t like strapless dresses…I don’t know why, but I just don’t feel very comfy in those. Anyway, I decided to go for strapless as the price of this dress was affordable (this wasn’t my best decision, but hey, I wanted to save some money for the real wedding! :p). Second, the length of the dress was way too long, I stepped on the dress every single time! That was so annoying and I could literally hear the seams on that dress ripping (oops!) Finally, one of those steel bones of the corset was cutting into my skin and that hurt like crazyyyyyy! Luckily you won’t be able to see that in those pictures :) Anyway, this is what really happened BTS and I thought I wanted to share it with you hehehe:) Hope you’re having an amazing week! xoxo

        Oh my goodness! Well hopefully your “real” dress won’t have many complications. Ha! You’re a true model. I would never imagine that the dress was annoying with these flawless pics. Now I’m REALLY looking forward to your wedding pictures. Enjoy your upcoming weekend! Xx

    You two make such a beautiful couple and the dress is absolutely gorgeous. Where are the photos taken? It looks like a fairytale forest with all those beautiful old trees:)

      Thanks Mitz! That’s so sweet! Speaking of that dress..it wasn’t my favourite dress to be honest (I’ve rented this for the photo shoot).

Luckily you won’t be able to see that in those pictures :) The photo shoot took place in Sai Kung at the Lions Nature Education Centre (situated in Tsiu Hang Special area)! This is a very popular place to take (pre-) wedding photo shoots :)

        I still think you look great in the dress:) I can’t wait to see your real wedding dress. I’m guessing something more traditional, like the one Kate Middleton wore without the length?

        • Vivian June 21, 2016 / 2:49 pm

          Hahaha to be honest, that’s the dress I wanted in the first place! You know me too well, Mitz! :) But unfortunately they didn’t have many long sleeve wedding dresses at that time…so I went for another one :)

    You look absolutely gorgeous Vivian :). And I love the idea of pre-wedding photos. It takes the stress out of leaving the wedding place and taking photos just to be on time for the reception. Love the idea. I already know your wedding will be just as amazing as your love :).

    Very new concept, but I understand the idea. He doesn’t look so shy – you both are perfect in front of a camera!
    I wish you to have an amazing Big Day when September comes :))

    • Vivian June 21, 2016 / 1:54 pm

    Wowww…You guys are just perfect. Absolutely love this pre-wedding photoshoot. You don’t look uncomfortable at all in that amazing strapless dress. And hey, Wai doesn’t seem camera shy at all. Now I know..he’s so handsome that’s why you are hiding him from the envious eyes visiting your blog, right? hehehe. Anyways Congrats once again.

    • Vivian June 21, 2016 / 1:58 pm

      Hahahah that’s a good one! I really laughed about the handsome part! :p You should have known better, dear! He practised a lot in order not to look shy:) Anyway, thanks for your lovely comment! xo
