Feiping Chang, Hong Kong's "IT Girl", lifestyle blogger, and fashionista married financier Lincoln Li in an over the top 3 day wedding.
The wedding ceremony took place in front of 130 guests in Capri, on Italy's Amalfi coast.
A cover shoot and in-depth interview with the couple has recently been published in Hong Kong Tatler. "I've always loved Capri — it's one of my favourite summer destinations. It's my happy place," Feiping told the magazine. "It's a really beautiful and magical spot, and I always knew that one day if I were to get married, I would want to do it there."
The 3 day event consisted of a Capri-style "welcome dinner" at renowned restaurant Da Paolino, followed by a beach day at glamorous club Nerano.
The bride's best friend, Harris Chan, a designer at Hong Kong high fashion brand Moiselle made her "welcome gown." The lemon print fabric was hand drawn and customised with the couples' names entwined in lemon flowers.
At the welcome dinner, guests were treated to a standout burrata (a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream) dish. The table was arranged with tile name places and centrepieces made with real lemons.
The wedding ceremony was held at Villa Lysis. The decoration theme was "Garden of Eden." White flowers were hung high from trees and even covered the floor. Securing the venue took some persuading of the Italian government, Feiping told Tatler, because no wedding has ever been allowed to take place there. The couple even went to the trouble of building a bridge to link the villa to the rooftop.
Feiping's couture wedding gown was designed by Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli, she affectionately calls him "the king of tulle."
The floral arrangements were created by luxury local florist Domenico Ruggiero from Capri Flor.
The couple built a temporary kitchen for their luxury wedding. The bride, Feiping said "We had a very simple three-course menu — crowd-pleasing Italian food that we knew everybody would like, accompanied by wine from the region." The intricately designed table setting consisted of handcrafted edible white flowers, leaves, and custom plates designed by Laboratorio Paravicini.
There was also an entire dessert room, complete with a profiterole tower and an array of other sweet treats, adorned in yet more flowers.
As for the wedding cake, they used over 15 kilos of fresh wild strawberries for the cake. The triple layer wedding cake was assembled by 4 chefs live on the dance floor.
All of the guests received custom-designed goodie bags packed with Capri memorabilia to remember the extravagant affair.
