Lucy and Chris’s wedding registration venue finally falls on Cotton Tree Drive, one of the most in-demand historical and romantic sites in Hong Kong. Despite it is under the Covid-19 situation, this lovely couple shows us that the most valuable thing in the wedding is their beautiful love.
With the witness of the historic architectures and woods, Chris steps closer to Lucy. It is a simple, but a delicate ceremony with the newlyweds vowing their commitments and bathing in the scattering pedals.
Next to the cotton tree drive wedding registry is the iconic renovated Murray Hotel. Designed by the British modernist architect Ron Philips in 1969, Murray Hotel is famous for its stylish three-storey arches and large recessed windows, through which the sunlight filters into space.
Later Foster + Partners has redesigned the fabulous architecture, to create a dialogue between the old and new, by reserving the primary classic frame and embracing some modern urbanism elements.
Connecting the building base with Hong Kong Park and the Botanical Garden, the seamless design creates a sound and calm space for the couple to take wedding photos under pandemic conditions, which means they can both keep their distance from the crowds and enjoy the sense of open space.
The Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry provides an ideal venue for the couple to record their romantic moments.
Lucy loves photographing, so she takes candid photos of her beloved husband with a vintage compact camera. Photographer Amy records the candid shoots behind them and makes some photos in the black-and-white form to create an elegant chic style of classic romance films.
The simplest, the sincerest. Under the COVID-19 situation, we find that the most romantic wedding comes from the genuine love.
