The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong is setting up an exclusive treat for couples planning to wed. Those looking for “an enchanting wedding that would rival royalty” this could be your calling. The hotel will host a “Wedding Inspiration Affair” on August 7, hoping it to be the year’s “most stylish bridal event”.
A panel of the industry’s finest men and women will come together to make this happen. It will start with the Cristal Wedding Menu crafted by two-star Michelin Chef Paul Lau from Tin Lung Heen and price starting at HK$3,988. Some of its “gastronomic gems” will include Braised Whole Yoshihama Abalone with Foie Gras (the cheese-burger of this century – fame-wise) in Oyster Sauce, Braised Lobster Soup with Fish Maw, Steamed Star Garoupa Fillet with Superior Bird’s Nest (Why would someone want to eat a bird’s nest?) and Prunier Caviar and Deep-Fried Crab Claw in Superior Black Vinegar and Baked Fresh Crab Meat with Rice in Young Coconut (no age given). To wash this down, a bottle of Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut will also be served.
The event is a polished and luxurious version of a wedding planner. Couples can opt to sign up a membership with the “exclusive Wedding Club”, where they can enjoy special dining, Spa and accommodation privileges.
The event will be dress rehearsal of what the bride could look like on the most important day in her life. A wedding gown fitting session will see the likes of Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2017 Bridal Collection, as well as designs from J Mendel, Reem Acra, Carolina Herrera, Legends Romona Keveza and Ines Di Santo by Trinity Bridal, as well as bridal footwear fitting sessions too. A preview of Giuseppe Zanotti Design’s Muse Collection and complementary photography service by Johnny Productions will also be available.
Other big names participating at the event include Lo Kan Fong Chinese Wedding who will share sharing must-know tips on Chinese wedding traditions, rituals and etiquettes, caviar tasting by Caviar House and Prunier, free trial on Graff Diamonds engagement ring setting, and Brioni Smart Bespoke for grooms-to-be as well as wedding artisans including Greenfingers, Phoenix Sweets, Pierre Hermé Paris, ME2 Productions, SanStation, Wedding Maestros, Novamity, Sun N Sea Weddings and Links Concept – Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne.
