Because the wedding day was a fast-paced one without much time for any bride and groom portraits, I thought it would be a fun idea to do a Day After session. Destination weddings are sort of a little different in that they are a bit of a departure from the regular scenes you would see at an at-home wedding ~ so why not take advantage of everything the destination has to offer?
Dickson suggested we start off at Statue Square where the Legislative Council building is ~ an historic landmark in Hong Kong. Dickson’s mother came along as well, which was fantastic because being a resident, she could direct us to some interesting architecture in the area. Our last stop was at the “Blue Building” in the Wan Chai area, which is a declared grade I historical building. Everywhere you turn there is history of some sort amongst the new construction ~ the contrasts of Hong Kong is astounding.
The session was laid back and low-key, exactly what the couple needed after a week of preparations capped off by a large wedding. This was also Frances’ third dress ~ this one a lovely pleated and tucked goddess gown in champagne. I loved the simplicity of this look along with a few simple diamond adornments. Perfection. And Dickson looked dapper yet casual in a white button down with classy black buttons.
There will be more to come from this session as well ~ stay tuned. But in the meantime, enjoy!
