Earlier this year, we had the chance to work with a lovely couple to plan their wedding reception in Hong Kong. With only three months lead time, we worked quickly to pull the whole look together for them from start to finish. The bride wanted to evoke a dreamy ethereal mood and incorporate her favourite colour, purple. With soft drapery, clever lighting and elegant floral arrangements, the ballroom at InterContinental was transformed into a truly romantic wedding venue.

The days are simply flying by in our busiest wedding season yet…
Come to think of it, its always like this at this time of year! With a massive outdoor setup next week, a handful of ballroom sized weddings coming up and lots of enquiries and bookings for 2011, it is most definitely wedding season in Hong Kong! Our girls in the office are run off their feet yet manage to stay cheerfully calm, organized and efficient. They are coming into their own and turning into a great team. The vibe is good and everything is getting done.
In the meantime, fingers crossed for beautiful and dry weather next week for one of our sweetest couples, they deserve it!
Although we are wedding planners and not wedding gown retailers, we are always on the lookout for our brides. Our good friends at Central Weddings are holding an ‘Anne Barge’ trunk show on September 10th and 11th with a special appearance by the designer herself. Not to be missed if you haven’t yet found your dream gown!

We recently met up with Lucia Shum, the newly appointed Director of Catering and Events at the yet-to-be opened Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong. Located at ICC, the Ritz-Carlton makes a spectacular return as the world’s tallest hotel, slated to open around March 2011. Lucia tells us that the ballroom is already a popular choice amongst wedding couples. With a 7,580 sq ft Grand Ballroom (that can be divided into two smaller ballrooms) easily accommodating 40+ tables and the infamous Ritz-Carlton service, its not surprising that couples are willing to take a leap of faith and book it sight unseen. This could turn out to be one of the hottest wedding venues in 2011!
