There are many great event decorators in town but my goto decorator for events, both large and small, for the past 15 years has been Wedding Garden. It’s the production team behind many of the city’s most lavish weddings and even the Tatler Ball in 2018.
A husband-and-wife team, they complement each other and get as excited about thinking out of the box as I do. They have a loyal following and while a little patience is required, the end result never comes up short.

Flos on the Folk, Ellermann Design and My Elegant Wedding
We work with a huge range of florists and it’s really hard to just choose one. For beautiful hand-tied bouquets I love Flos on the Folk, and Ellermann Design for their beautiful florals and tasteful packaging.
Ellermann Design has just come out with a line of beautiful vintage and antique accessories, too. For weddings, we like to work with Ashley and Eric from My Elegant Wedding. They only work with fresh flowers and clearly love what they do.

Jada Poon, Johnny Productions and KC Chan
For fine art portraiture celebrating women, I am a huge fan of Jada Poon’s work and am looking forward to one day working with her on a shoot of my own. For larger-scale weddings and events, Susan and Johnny from Johnny Productions are an experienced photography and videography team.
They know exactly what needs to be done to create the shot. Meanwhile, the affable KC Chan is the happiest and most hard-working photographer I know. His pre-wedding shoots held all over the world are very popular with Hong Kong-based couples.

Bella Figura and SanStation
I have always loved stationery and for years have worked with Bella Figura, a small printing press in upstate New York that produces beautiful letterpress stationery on thick cotton paper for our discerning couples. In Hong Kong, we love working with Sandy Chan from SanStation.
She creates a “ready-to-wear” line for the entry-level couple and bespoke, elaborate, custom designs for a special affair. Nothing is too much trouble for her: she works around the clock and is passionate about her craft.
