ALICE BARNARD AND RAVI HI­RANAND COCK­TAIL RE­CEP­TION

The Force Awak­ens

Hong Kong Tatler - - It Takes Two -

The Hol­i­day Inn Golden Mile was sci-fi-geek heaven when Shirley Hi­ranand hosted a cock­tail party in Oc­to­ber to cel­e­brate the mar­riage of her son Ravi to Alice Barnard, which had taken place in Kent, Eng­land, a month ear­lier. The grand ball­room fea­tured a va­ri­ety of nods to the shared ob­ses­sion of the happy cou­ple, from plac­ards bear­ing Star Wars di­a­logue such as “May the force be with you” and “I am your father” to fig­urines of char­ac­ters from Ghost­busters and the Harry Pot­ter uni­verse. Guests heeded the in­vi­ta­tion’s sug­ges­tion that they wear some­thing red, adding move­ment to the red-and-white decor—ravi do­ing his part in bright red Con­verse sneak­ers. There was a par­tic­u­larly long re­cep­tion line to greet guests, with vir­tu­ally all mem­bers of the Hi­ranand and Har­ilela fam­i­lies present.
