    Old Hollywood Glam

    This timeless and elegant look never fails to steal our hearts. St John’s Cathedral, which is one of the longest standing Western ecclesiastical buildings in Hong Kong, seems to be the perfect match to Helen’s vintage glam dress, and the Rolls Royce completes the look.

    When Time Makes All Things Beautiful

    There is a repeat element throughout this story: time. Time brought this couple back together, and it was a long period before they tied the knot. A bangle that once belonged to the bride’s grandmother was passed down to her by her mother, and it will be passed on to the generations to come. The newlyweds satisfied the bride’s first dance dream, and they actually wed in a heritage building, which is a symbol of something beautiful that has withstood the test of time.

    Childhood Sweethearts Marry After 23 Years Apart

    This is definitely not a story you hear every day. While puppy love often fades, it didn’t for Sarah Ho and Wilson Ng, who tied the knot at The Repulse Bay, Hong Kong, more than 20 years after they first met as children. Sarah formerly a designer at Paul Smith and Cath Kidston told the Hong Kong South China Morning Post, “Our mums were best friends and when they met, all the kids used to play together.
