Ordinarily, people expect to get married just once in their life, so it's important for the photographs to depict the moment in all its glory. In Hong Kong, it appears that newlyweds opt for unusual locations in which to capture their marital bliss; the steps outside the Hong Kong Cultural Centre have proven one such popular spot. Justin Yeung has applied his photography skills and channelled them into creating a novel business idea. Lover's Promise studio in Causeway Bay is the place to go if you want a free wedding dress for your big day. There are two wedding photo packages to choose from. Package A costs $1,599 for 12 photos and the choice to keep one of three wedding dresses. Package B ($2,999) gets you the same plus nine extra photos and two additional dresses to wear for the shoot. Shooting on location in scenic places such as Tai Tam, the deal is a bargain. It can't, however, ensure you'll reach your Golden Anniversary together.
