Well it's not very often that I see a Bride and Groom being photographed together, before their wedding day, in their actual wedding day attire, but that's exactly what Germaine and Fiance Patrick chose to do last month on a pre-wedding shoot in London ~ and what an incredible set of photographs they have as a result! Germaine looks the epitome of elegance in her vintage inspired Bridal Gown…
"We decided to do the engagement shoot in the gown and suit because my
boyfriend and I met in London 4 years ago but our wedding will be in
Hong Kong on 26 December this year. We spent three years in London together and
it means a lot to us. We really love to have our pictures here that's
why we brought the outfits all the way from Hong Kong for the photo
session. Steve Gerrard is absolutely awesome. We are really really pleased with
the pictures too."
Huge thanks to Photographer Steve Gerrard for submitting these gorgeous photographs, and credit also to Photographer Emma Case, who assisted Steve on the Photoshoot…

"I bought my gown from a local shop in Hong Kong called "Chapter One"
which carries gowns designed and made by Hong Kong designers. I like my
dress because it has some kind of vintage taste to it in a modern way.
Also I can wear the drape on my shoulders or neck, making it more
versatile with 2 different styles."
"With this gown, I don't need any
exaggerated pearl or diamond necklace because it just looks nice plain.
As for the hair accessory, I just got it from Topshop. I believe it's
And it didn't stop there, for Germaine and Patrick decided they wanted to go a little more casual during the shoot too…
"The casual outfit (the floral dress) is from Jill Stuart. The jacket
and the red flower hair pin are both from Topshop. I always love colours
and nature. To match, my boyfriend picked a green sweater. We wanted to
create a natural yet fun and urban theme to contrast with the elegant
style of the gown."
Wow, what an incredible set of snaps! Thank you Steve for sharing and thanks a million to Germaine for telling us about those beautiful dresses – we hope both you and Patrick have an AMAZING DAY on 26 December this year – we'll be thinking about you 🙂
Much wedding day love,
