From bride, Heather: “We always wanted to have a beautiful outdoor wedding with a stunning view (which is not easy in Hong Kong) so we chose Phuket for our overseas destination wedding. We are cat lovers and "accidentally" found online Ilaire from Wedding Boutique Phuket who had the same passion. It was love at 1st Meow! She designed for us a cat wedding theme full of small cute details, including one of the bridesmaid’s which was a real ginger Kitten!"
How did you two meet? “We met at work, and get to know each other at the company’s annual party. He proposed in a park in Japan, while we were sitting on a bench and eating cheese rings. I put the cheese ring on my finger, and he suddenly took out the ring and said how about I give you a real ring.”
Describe your wedding! “Wedding Boutique found many nice decorations with cats, together with natural, rustic and items that were a bit retro. We also cooperated with the research of cat themed items in Hong Kong - a friend of us designed our invitations with the characters of two of our two cats, simply amazing! Even the cake and the dessert bites had the shape of a cat and paws."
Was their one particular moment that was special to you on your wedding day? “The most magic moment was after we set off the lanterns, all emotions come together, we feel so happy and all the time and efforts we put on the wedding were worth it.”
Advice for future brides? “Planning a destination wedding could be not easy due to distance. We were initially anxious and afraid it will rain on the day…but at the beginning of the event all the stress went out in a breath! Relax and don’t try to do everything by yourself, rely on a good wedding planner like Wedding Boutique Phuket and everything will be perfect!”
