Virginia & Ethan at Eden Marriage Registry (伊甸園婚姻登記處)

Engagement shooting for Karen & Allen
August 16, 2006
What a beautiful wedding!– Yuka & Steven
August 29, 2006

This is my first time to take wedding picture in the Eden Marriage Registry Wanchai (伊甸園婚姻登記處). Eden is very popular since April this year and a nice alternative of the government registry for wedding couples.

When I first met Virginia a few weeks ago, I already felt that she is a very nice lady and she told me several times that don’t treat this as a job, instead, just enjoy and cerebrate with them in the wedding. Yes, both Esther and I enjoyed a lot that day.

Virginia was absolutely pretty in her wedding, Esther even said that she looks like one of the very famous award-winning actress. Who? Try to guess it from the photos.

I like this shot capturing Ethan looking at Virginia walking down the aisle

    Hi Simon, Hope you and Esther enjoyed our wedding that day…..
    Ethan has gone back to Shanghai for work. (I will go there with him next year after the wedding banquet.) He could just stayed a few days before and after our wedding ceremony this time, and that’s why we always cherish the time being together.
    Ethan and I has been staying in two different cities for more than four years since the 1st day we fell in love in 2002.  we can only see each other about 3-4 times a year.  Every time we stayed together that means we had to experience the ???? after the sweet moment.  Wedding for us is not just a ceremony but meaning that the day we stay together forever is coming soon. But it also means that we have to leave our families as his home is in Guangzhou and mines is in Hong Kong.  You know the feeling is complicated for us. 
    We dont care if every datails of the ceremony is perfect or not. We just care the end of separation between us.  All our relatives and friends know the story of us and we are happy that they were there and shared the happiness with us on that day. 
    Thank you very much for capturing the moment~~~~~~

  3. Hi Virginia,
    Thanks for sharing your story with us. I know it ‘s difficult to maintain a relationship when you ‘r separated for such a long time. Your story reminds me when my wife (Xandra) and I had to separate for ten months 10 years ago and she went to East Africa for a voluntary work. At that time, it was difficult to contact her and there was no communication of phone, email or letter at all for such a long time. I can still remember the moment when she left at a train station.
    Finally Ethan & you have made it and I am happy to hear you said "we can stay together forever is coming soon" –the meaning behind the wedding and ceremony for Ethan and you.
    Congratulation and wish you a happy life with Ethan.

    Hi Simon,
    I am sorry that I was too nervous that day and had seldom talked to you.  I saw you were really exhausted taking photos for us.  You are really a good wedding photographer!  Thank you for coming to our wedding ceremony~~~~
