Ballroom weddings in five star hotels are very popular in Hong Kong, mainly because they can manage 30, 40 or even 50 tables of the couple’s friends and family and still provide a quality menu that comes out on time with faultless service and well-trained managers. We have had the privilege to work with the best and here are our top four favourite hotel ballrooms in town!
The Grand Ballroom at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is a firm favourite of society matrons and their offsprings. An art deco inspired foyer leads into the 680 sq. m (7,319 sq ft) Grand Ballroom which has a pillarless design, a large oval crystal chandelier as well as a permanent stage. The ballroom has undergone a (much-needed) facelift and the new design has just been unveiled. Add perfect service (lots of unflappable managers here who have seen it all!) and an unsurpassed quality menu and you will see why potential couples have their names down on waiting lists for dates that are 12-18 months away. The downside is that the ballroom is also very popular with corporate events and conferences during the day so if you have lavish decorations in mind, it may be worthwhile to pay a little extra and secure the ballroom for the whole day.

At over 9,500 square feet, the InterContinental Hong Kong features one of the largest pillarless ballrooms in town. With its iconic sweeping white marble staircase, this is definitely a crowd-pleaser. A recent renovation added a contemporary touch. With top-notch service by seasoned staff and a spectacular harbour views from their signature suites, the InterContinental should definitely be on the top of your list. Again, book as early as possible, especially with an auspicious date in mind. Their annual Wedding Showcase (organized by yours truly) every March featuring over 40 luxury wedding vendors is also not to be missed!

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, located at the International Commerce Centre in Kowloon has one of the largest, newest and glitziest ballrooms in the city. At 10,000 square feet and elaborately decorated with an intricate design of glass chandeliers (aptly named the ‘Diamond Sea’) and mirrored columns, the décor of the Diamond Ballroom is well suited to weddings. We love their plush art deco inspired ballroom and their luxurious bridal facilities. Overall, the hotel is stunning!

The Peninsula Hong Kong, a majestic colonial building evokes a bygone era. Their Salisbury Room is the perfect size for more intimate gatherings of up to 120 guests. With its beautiful high ceilings complete with antique gold trim, this is a very sought-after venue serving both Western and Chinese menus with flair. Five star service (we wouldn’t expect any less!), a fleet of Phantom Rolls-Royces and newly renovated suites makes this hotel even more alluring than it already is!
A modern fairytale wedding banquet at the Ritz-Carlton ballroom in Hong Kong for this couple based in Japan. They had a specific idea of what they wanted but as they were based in Tokyo, we were on hand to facilitate the planning from beginning to end and execute their exact vision from the elegant long table settings to the detailed evening rundown and carefully programmed lighting. Guests were entertained throughout the evening with heartfelt speeches, videos, a boisterous lion dance and even a light-hearted choreographed dance (complete with costumes) by the bridal party.
Vintage is all the rage and the Ainsley design from Dauphine Press does it best with a decorative frame and a personalised monogram. We love the unique die-cut shape and the pretty colour palette, not to mention the fine details and gorgeous paper its printed on!

If you’re looking for elegant hand calligraphy printed on the most beautiful cotton paper, look no further than Bella Figura’s interpretation as shown below. Soft and delicate, it evokes an understated elegance. We especially love the matte gold foil stamping paired with their lavender letterpress ink.

An exclusive members-only club in Hong Kong was the perfect setting for the wedding of this stylish Eurasian couple. They met as childhood school mates and re-connected years later. Surrounded by loving friends and family, they wed overlooking the South China Sea this past Spring.
Post-ceremony, guests enjoyed a festive cocktail hour followed by an informal buffet. Speciality bartenders, delicious desserts and great music kept the party going until late!
