The who’s who of Hong Kong gathered to celebrate the nuptials of Jimmy Tang’s son, Arthur Tang, who married the beautiful Fiona Li. This society wedding that we planned in December 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong was extensively covered by the local media. Notable guests included Charles Ho, Peter Lam and Che-hung Leong.

The grandeur of The Peninsula Hong Kong was the perfect setting for this Victorian inspired wedding and truly reflected this beautiful couple. We were involved in most aspects of their planning, from the invitation design to securing the right team of vendors. On the day, our coordinators were on hand to ensure everything was properly executed.
The day started off with the traditional games and tea ceremonies followed by an ‘outdoor’ ceremony and lunch for fifty of the couple’s closest friends and family at the Garden Suite.
The celebration continued at the dinner reception in the Salisbury Room with touching speeches, a ‘same day edit’ of the morning’s festivities and a mouth-watering candy table to cap off the evening.
Here at The Wedding Company, we have seen all kinds of weddings and we were thrilled with the sheer prettiness of the flowers and décor, thanks to the stellar effort from Ellermann Design.
Surprise birthdays are not always the easiest to pull off but earlier this year, we planned and executed an intimate 50th birthday brunch at The Envoy, a cocktail bar and dining room situated in the elegant Pottinger Hotel in the heart of Central. Guests were entertained from the moment they arrived and enjoyed a relaxed meal with close friends and family.
For 2017, the Pantone Color Institute has chosen the colour ‘Greenery’ that not only signify new beginning (how apt for the start of the year!) but also reflects the global awareness towards the importance of our physical, social and political environment. ‘While serenity and rose quartz, the Pantone color of the year 2016, expressed the need for harmony in a chaotic world,’ said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. ‘Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the hope we collectively yearn for amid a complex social and political landscape. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate, revitalize and unite, greenery symbolizes the re-connection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.’
For weddings, its a great colour to inject a little unexpected freshness and life into your colour palette. Have fun with it but remember, a little goes a long way!

Traditional Chinese believe that the first hundred days of a baby’s life is when he/she is most vulnerable, thus staying indoors to avoid illness and the harsh elements of the outside world. Once a baby reaches 100 days, it is a cause for celebration and this was no exception.
We had the pleasure of planning an intimate dinner for a very special little boy. A fairytale theme complete with an oversized personalised fairytale book and a foliage wall created a perfect setting for this happy family. Tables were set with oversized bell jars lit with fairy lights and surround by a garden of flowers on custom made dark green tablecloths highlighted with delicate calligraphy menus. A decadent candy table, photo booth and a sleight of hand magician capped off a magical evening.
