Hong Kong Wedding Highlights of the Day

This video summarises the morning of our wedding day on the 26th December 2007. The day began from the groom’s home in Fanling, proceeding to Gold Coast hotel, and then the Ferry terminal No.9 at Central. The Chinese wedding began in the morning with my groomsmen and I having to “pass” some tests/challenges set by the bridesmaids before I could get to Ling, one of the challenges being that I had to pick the correct ribbon attached to Ling’s arm while she stood behind a door! Luckily I got it right the third time! Once I passed the tests, we carried out the tea ceremony with Ling wearing her “kua” (traditional Chinese wedding dress). We served tea to the Ling’s parents as a sign of respect and gratuity, then we served tea to the my parents to symbolise the bride entering the groom’s family. This is followed by the civil ceremony held at Eden Registry, at Hong Kong Park.

We want to express our heartfelt thanks to our videographers: Terry and his crew (Alex and Teddy) from One Shot Production for creating such a memorable video for us that will remind us of our wedding day. Terry, you have a great sense of directorship, and you see beauty in all things. You have done a great job synchronising the video scenes with the music too! Alex, you are professional and fun to work with. We will cherish this video for the rest of our lives and still watch it EVERY night for at least twice! We love your work very much. Keep up the great work!

  12. Ling and Leung,

    Lay Ho Ma? First and foremost let me congratulate both of you on hosting such a fun packed memorable wedding day. I felt very privileged to have been invited to Hong Kong to share a special day with you. It was my first time attending a Chinese wedding and I was excited to find out what I had let myself in for, and to my surprise any other wedding I had ever been to paled in comparisson.

    Lawrence has done a fantasic job taking the pictures. Everytime I look at them brings back such wonderful memories.

    Terry has done a tremendous job filming the important moments of the day, and Joanne, good call on recommending the music to go with the video highlights.

    Ling – you must have slept with a hanger in your mouth the night before your wedding because you couldn’t stop smiling on the day 🙂 Both of you looked very much in love and are an example of a perfect couple.

    Ken you did a great job organising the tram ride through HK city centre for your close friends and family. It was an enjoyable experiance and very thoughtful of you.

    I wish you two all the best for the future and hope we can remain close friends for a very long time.

    Love from Anil.

  13. Shirley (Hui Chen), we loved your cooking so much! Thank you for the compliments! I can’t wait to see you in a white dress one day too.

    Anil, your comments make an enjoyable read! I still remember the day we went sight-seeing together in Hong Kong. It was so much fun but we were so naive to get “con-ed” money!

    To all who left their touching comments, I can’t say thank you enough. I’m speechless by the good wishes that you’ve showered Leung & I with. May you all be blessed with all the good things in life.

  14. Hi Ken & Ling, congratulations!!!!! There’re the most touching wedding I’ve seen. I wish you two happiness ever after ^^

    Warm Regards,
    Lois

  15. Ling, Leung,

    It was simply awesome, to be able to witness the wedding of the year!! It has been an honour to be a part of your wedding! The wedding in Malacca and HongKong were both so sweet and umm… what’s the right word to use, cosy? Very personal and you’ve made sure everyone felt good during and after the wedding. I enjoyed going through the bits and pieces of your big day! Whether it is looking at you lovebirds, the stunningly beautiful bride and the handsome groom, exchanging of vows, photoshooting, eating, wrapping chocolates into the dress and tux (and untying and tying them again), talking to your family and friends, playing the gift for both of you (too many to write)… I’ll keep everything with me for as long as I live. It is indeed a wonderful experience for me, and I just love your videos and pictures. Thanks for the presents you’ve sent (that travelled from UK to HK to UK to Malaysia =P ), I love them! Get me those videos fast!!!

    Love you both! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and joy! And I’m looking forward to Ling or Leung junior!!! =D

  17. This video played a crucial role in finding Ken as our wedding photographer. We were searching on the Internet for a photographer when we suddenly bumped into this very touching and beautiful video. Both Yat Man and I immediately fell in love with this video and we checked out the website that linked to it which was Ken Lam Photography. After seeing Ken’s wedding portfolio, we were so much impressed that we immediately wanted him as our wedding photographer. The rest is history…
