Wedding Decor

Wallpaper Photo Backdrops.

It’s the one part of the wedding that many couples either spend a hefty sum on or leave the wedding venue to provide (usually in the form of a big red board with a printed tacky and shimmery name banner pinned on) as part of the wedding package. Photo backdrops needn’t cost you an arm or a leg nor should it be so boring that you’re better off without it. Add some personality and spark to your backdrop by using wallpaper – it’ll instantly transform a formerly drab looking photo into one that’s full of life. Love travelling? Go for a vintage world map. Floral addict? How about a Cath Kidston-esque print? The patterns and prints are boundless so narrow down by concentrating on your colour scheme and wedding theme (if any) or you’ll find yourself going off course.

Where to find wallpaper?
Hong Kong Island: Lockhart Road, Wan Chai (the section between Wan Chai MTR Exit A1 and Causeway Bay)
Kowloon (don’t be a snob, it’s not the dark side): Hong Lok Street and Portland Street, Mong Kong (the section between Argyle Street and Mong Kok Road)

Real Wedding: Sarah & Will by History Studio

The weather’s been properly grimy and if like me, you’re suffering from the Monday blues then taking a look at Sarah & Will’s wedding at the Repulse Bay will certainly brighten your day. Back in September, I gave you a glimpse into Sarah’s artistic talent with her and Wills’ engagement session by award-winning photographer Marianne Taylor. If you thought their London based shoot was cute and print-happy, just wait till you see their wedding day. Filled with colourful pinwheels, pom poms and paper flowers as well as floral prints (I have fallen in love with her robe), in Sarah’s words “the wedding was unbelievable and such a surreal day”. Complemented by Kong Wai of History Studio’s pure and natural style of photography, the fact that both parties come from a design background meant that they shared a similar vision and all the details were captured. To all Hong Kong brides and grooms, don’t be scared to think outside the box. Sometimes, the best things come from the unexpected.

DIY Projects Personal touches Wedding Anniversary

Can't Buy Me Love.

I’m all for DIY. Just like the Beatles’ song ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, the personal aspect of a hand-made product is something that money can’t buy. In the materialistic city that we live in, many crave for the latest and most expensive gadget or handbag, but if you’re simply buying for the sake of celebrating an event, be it your wedding or your anniversary, can you really say you’ve put much thought into it? Two decades down the line, will you remember that your other half got you an iPad for your 1st wedding anniversary? Give something meaningful, sentimental and thoughtful. Who knows, you may have touched your hubby or wifey’s heart so much, they might just shed a tear when they see your creation. I did when I saw the hubster’s work of art which I’ll keep a secret.


Here’s a sneak peek at Bridelicious’ DIY Map of Vows. Keep a lookout for tomorrow’s post where I’ll be giving you a step-by-step guide so you can create your own too! Wow that special someone.
