Friends and family gathered at The Repulse Bay and the Grand Hyatt’s Grand Ballroom for Natalie Chan and Justin Kwok’s wedding
or solicitor Natalie Chan, marrying college sweetheart Justin Kwok came as a natural progression of their relationship. Following a surprise proposal in the garden at her home, the wedding took about a year of planning, which culminated in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at The Repulse Bay and a banquet the following day in the Grand Hyatt’s Grand Ballroom. The twoday event drew together guests from across the generations and all walks of life.
The couple had met while Natalie was still studying at university; they dated for nearly seven years before deciding to tie the knot. Prior to their nuptials, they travelled to numerous places around the world for their pre-wedding photo shoots, including France and Taiwan. In New Zealand, the couple explored the town of Wanaka and flew by helicopter up to Mount Roy for a four-hour photo shoot, with pristine green surroundings and a mountaintop serving as the dramatic backdrop.
On the big day, Natalie’s bridesmaids planned a series of challenges that the groom and his groomsmen had to overcome in order to finally see the bride. These humorous games included performing push-ups while eating blueberries from a mound of whipped cream, getting their legs waxed and using their feet to retrieve mahjong tiles from a bucket of ice. Following the games came a tea ceremony, during which the couple were presented with jewels and red packets by their parents.
