Reach­ing New Heights


Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

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
