With its vast ball­room, stun­ning views and 546 guest rooms, the Kerry Ho­tel in Hung Hom Bay is gain­ing a rep­u­ta­tion as a wed­ding venue with a dif­fer­ence.

The ho­tel hosted a wed­ding fair on July 22, with more than 900 reg­is­tered guests tour­ing its var­i­ous event spa­ces—from the Grand Ball­room, ca­pa­ble of ac­com­mo­dat­ing up to 1,200 peo­ple for a banquet, to the Out­door Deck, which of­fers the spec­tac­u­lar back­drop of Vic­to­ria Har­bour for an in­ti­mate out­door cer­e­mony.

The cou­ples were also in­tro­duced to more than 40 ven­dors spe­cial­is­ing in wed­ding decor, pho­tog­ra­phy, wed­ding gowns and more through var­i­ous in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences. The fair in­cluded a panel dis­cus­sion on wed­ding dos and don’ts fea­tur­ing ex­perts from The Theme Wed­ding De­sign and Wed­ding Mae­stros; a de­tailed talk on Chi­nese wed­ding rit­u­als and eti­quette from Lo Kan Fong Chi­nese Wed­ding; a sim­u­lated cer­e­mony on the Out­door Deck per­formed by An Oath Cel­e­brant Ser­vice; and two fash­ion shows that show­cased more than 20 of the hottest wed­ding looks with Audella Bridal House, Trin­ity Bridal, Mode Tuxedo and Sarah Zhuang Jew­ellery.

Cou­ples could also par­tic­i­pate in fun work­shops through­out the day. Candy spe­cial­ist Pa­pabub­ble pro­vided ideas for wed­ding favours with a ses­sion that had cou­ples cut­ting candy and learn­ing how to shape lol­lipops; Bow by Lazy Bak­ing showed cou­ples how to add a spe­cial touch to their dessert spread with per­son­alised cook­ies; and Kas’weet walked cou­ples through mak­ing flo­ral ar­range­ments in a tea cup. Aro­mather­apy As­so­ci­ates showed how to use es­sen­tial oils to de-stress from all the wed­ding plan­ning; Par­fumerie Tré­sor gave tips on choos­ing the right fra­grance for the big day; and Echad De­signs showed cou­ples how to cus­tomise their wed­ding rings.

In be­tween, guests sampled the ho­tel’s culi­nary of­fer­ings at the hot food sta­tions set up just out­side the Grand Ball­room, paired with cham­pagne, wine and mock­tails.

Fur­ther­more, guests could sign up for a fit­ting in the Pres­i­den­tial Suite fea­tur­ing ex­quis­ite gowns from Audella Bridal House, sit back for a re­lax­ing skin­care treat­ment at Cha Ling’s booth, or drop by any of the por­trait sta­tions set up at the ho­tel’s Grand Stair­case, Hung Hom Ball­room and Har­bour View Foyer to have their photo taken.

Singer Tess Collins and In­nona­tion Live Mu­sic added a fes­tive air through­out the day, each per­form­ing a se­lec­tion of pop­u­lar songs for wed­dings.

The ho­tel’s har­bour­side lo­ca­tion by the Hung Hom pier also of­fers cou­ples the op­tion of bring­ing guests to their wed­ding by wa­ter, a jour­ney on which they can soak up views of the spec­tac­u­lar sky­line. Aqua Luna, the last tra­di­tional Chi­nese junk to have been built in Hong Kong, was on hand at the fair to demon­strate the ex­pe­ri­ence, fer­ry­ing at­ten­dees be­tween Tsim Sha Tsui, Cen­tral and Wan Chai.

From start to fin­ish, guests at the Kerry. Your Ur­ban Wed­ding Oa­sis fair were treated to ex­pe­ri­ences that al­lowed them to vi­su­alise how Kerry Ho­tel can make their big day as spe­cial as it can be.
