Kerry. Your Urban Wedding Oasis
Ideas, advice and interactive experiences galore at the Kerry Hotel wedding fair
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.
