Katrina Mayer, director and co-owner of restaurant management company Concept Creations, set out looking for a bar manager. At day's end, she found her perfect man. Katrina and Ben Kerr, managing director of The Brand Agency, were married on July 16 at The Verandah in Repulse Bay, celebrating with about 120 guests. About seven years ago, Katrina recruited Ben from Australia to manage one of her bars in Central, Mink on Hollywood Road. 'I called some friends in Australia and asked if they knew anyone,' Katrina recalled. 'Ben responded and said he was looking for a life change and wanted to move to Hong Kong. A few weeks later, he was on his way.' Katrina was dating someone at the time, but she picked Ben up at the airport. 'When I saw him, it was love at first sight. He was tall, dark and handsome, just the way I like.' Not long after, Katrina broke up with her boyfriend to be with Ben. 'There wasn't actually any first date or such, we just spent long hours working together and getting to know each other,' she said. 'I knew Ben's the one I wanted to marry. It was very clear, and I had never felt anything like that before. It took him a little longer to warm to me, but I used my wit and charm and finally he came around,' Katrina added, laughing. After seven years of dating, Ben proposed in February. They were lying in bed chatting, when he popped the question. 'Of course I said yes,' she said. 'I love his sense of humour. He makes me laugh every day, even when I'm not in the mood.'
