Restoring a villa that's over 100 years old, planning not one but three weddings, entertaining 1,000 guests—it sounds like a lot of work, and it is, but for these couples, it was all a labour of love. Find out how these couples made their big day dreams come true and get an insider's look at their glamorous, totally extravagant weddings:
1. Feiping Chang and Lincoln Li's fairytale come true
From restoring a 1904 villa to carpeting the ground with wildflowers, Hong Kong It girl Feiping Chang and financier Lincoln Li went all out when they tied the knot during a sun-soaked three-day weekend in Capri filled with love, laughs and plenty of limoncello.
2. Joanna Lui And Troy Hickox's three weddings around the world
What do you do when you can’t decide where to hold your wedding? For Joanna Lui and Troy Hickox, the answer was simple: three extravagant celebrations on three different continents: Hong Kong, Sydney and Monaco.
3. Tina Herms and Matthew McAfee Thai the knot
The setting was magical: Amanpuri, a secluded resort on the west coast of Phuket, surrounded by coconut palms and overlooking the most splendid of beaches and the sparkling Andaman Sea. Here, Tina Herms and Matthew McAfee exchanged vows before 170 friends and family.
4. Emanuela Santi and Andrew Peña's dreamy Tuscan wedding
An events planner and designer, Emanuela knows how to throw a party—she organised supermodel Naomi Campbell’s 40th birthday bash and has worked extensively at the Cannes Film Festival. Inspired by Morocco with a unique Hong Kong touch, she and her now-husband Andrew celebrated their love with a three-day wedding under the Tuscan sun.
5. Jacqueline Yam and Eric Yu's 1,000-strong guestlist
With 1,000 guests expected to arrive, Jacqueline Yam and Eric Yu had to host their reception at none other than the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. It was no easy feat, but one advantage of the vast room’s blank canvas was that it opened endless possibilities for veteran party-planner Silvio Bergé, with the couple eventually settling on a Secret Garden theme.
6. Yvonne Kung and Frankie Tsang's day of endless surprises
Inside the grand ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, Yvonne Kung and Frankie Tsang celebrated their love with two running themes throughout their Hong Kong wedding: flowers, and surprises—including an extravagant chandelier cake that descended from the ceiling.
