Hong Kong, 16, Sept 2014: Wedding planners at The Ritz-Carlton are redefining the art of the wedding atelier by curating artisanal luxury wedding shows fuelling the dreams of couples looking for an intimate affair or a lavish dream wedding that would rival royalty.
In Asia-Pacific alone, The Ritz-Carlton creates more than 2,000 luxury weddings each year, making The Ritz-Carlton the largest luxury wedding atelier and host in the region. Each wedding is elegantly choreographed in opulent detail with handpicked artisans, resulting in picture perfect memories. Some senior wedding planners alone have orchestrated over 500 weddings each.
These real weddings from around the world can now be seen in the first Chinese edition of The Ritz-Carlton Weddings magazine which was launched this month. Romantic weddings featured include the Princess Bride, the story of a Chinese couple who created their very own Royal Wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Tianjin, which recreated an enchanted forest in the hotel’s ballroom and a horse and carriage ride around the old city quarter. Extraordinary destination weddings include underwater weddings in Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi, Thailand while venues with dramatic skylines of Hong Kong and Shanghai have also been created for couples looking for a white wedding in the sky.

The wedding fairs we create in each of our hotels are the first step to help them imagine their dreams.”
