Reaching New Heights
WENDY LAW & WILL LAM’S WEDDING RECEPTION
The new year started on a high note for Wendy Law and Will Lam when they tied the knot at a lavish wedding reception at the Grand Hyatt. Planned with the help of Wendy’s good friend Amanda Lui, everything was perfect during the celebration. The modern-day Cinderella theme saw the opulent venue decorated like the fairy tale, from the castle atop the wedding cake to the carriage that decorated the entranceway and the performance from The Nutcracker. Will’s father, Lam Foo-wah, designed the menu, which featured a range of Chinese delicacies, and guests sipped on Château Lynch-bages from the private collection of Wendy’s father, Law Kar-po.
Long before they became romantically involved, it was apparent that Wendy and Will, who dated for about 18 months before the wedding, were destined to be together. Aside from sharing the initials WL, the two first crossed paths as young children in neighbouring houses, often going rollerblading together.
After losing touch over the years, luck brought them back together when they met again through mutual friends—a tale Will revealed in his speech, in which he spoke of Wendy as his best friend and of how lucky he felt to have met his life partner so early.
The couple’s romance reached a high note, quite literally, when the pair were holidaying in Nepal. They had been hiking in the mountains when an approaching storm forced them to retreat to their hotel, where they were greeted by a message Will had organised earlier: an arch of pink and white balloons with illuminated text spelling out, “Will you marry me?”
Having said yes, Wendy scoured the globe in search of the perfect dress, a mission that took her to New York, London, Paris and Barcelona. She found not one, but two—from Rosa Clará in Barcelona and Atelier Pronovias in London. Wendy accessorised with custom-made jewellery from Butani, which included a convertible tiara she designed so it could also be worn as a necklace. Poman Lo and Wendy Law Marcus Lee
