As a Destination Wedding location goes you can’t beat Hong Kong. Marcus & Andrea’s wedding celebrations in the heart of this Metropolis were simply beautiful. Day one was their intimate and more traditional Chinese tea ceremony with family and friends. Day two was a much more modern affair. A catholic wedding ceremony at St Margaret’s Church, followed by the reception at Hong Kong Country Club.
By having their wedding celebrations on two separate days it allowed us to maximise their timelines. Furthermore, it allowed undertaking a separate shoot to capture their wedding day portraits in a more relaxed setting they chose. They opted for a Wedding Portrait Shoot at the fantastic Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong.
Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong
Victoria Harbour is a key location in the Central District of Hong Kong Island. Furthermore, it is a major tourist attraction for Hong Kong in general. The bay forms a natural centre for the area, lying in the middle of the territory’s dense urban metropolis. With its panoramic views over to the Kowloon, Victoria Harbour is a must-see location. Whilst popular with visitors, it is also a favourite spot for many a local to relax. Whether that is to take a walk along the promenade or the surrounding parks or to visit one of the public events that happen in the area.
Wedding Portrait Shoot at Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong
Hong Kong has a wealth of amazing locations for a portrait shoot or sessions. Sometimes planning an engagement session or choosing a location for a wedding portrait shoot can be difficult. This location, however, was not up for debate by Andrea and Marcus for their wedding portraits.
Victoria Harbour Offers A Variety of Wedding Portrait Backdrops
Andrea And Marcus favoured Victoria Harbour and the surrounding area for their Wedding Portrait Shoot. It offered them a variety of backdrops in one close location, which was important for them. They only had limited time for their portrait shoot between their work and planning and arranging their two weddings.
Green open spaces & parks
We started the wedding portrait shoot in one of the local parks. It provided a lush green and natural backdrop to their photographs, and interest in the form of sculptures, and greenery.
We then headed to Victoria Harbour as the sun started to fall and the city lights came alive. The impressive city skyline set against the backdrop of the peak looked magnificent as twilight came. We watched as the city changed to the flashing lights and neon signs.
On a personal note, I just want to thank Marcus and Andrea along with their family and friends. You made me feel so welcome, and I can’t thank you enough for showing me around. I can’t wait to head back to Hong Kong and capture more special moments for many more couples.
