We put together a chic garden-inspired wedding celebration on one of the coldest days of the year, working closely with our team to ensure every detail was well executed. This excited couple and their families had very specific ideas for their big day, and we made it our priority to bring their visions to life.
The Pool House at The Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong was the perfect setting for a elegant afternoon ceremony for close friends and family. Guests entered the Pool House through a slate grey marble walkway, decorated in shades of fresh coral, peach and cream.

The bride and groom exchanged their heartfelt vows under an floral arch filled with delicate blush pink and white florals. We loved the contrast of the tropical green trees outside against the warmly lit room.
In the evening, over 600 guests returned for a glittering dinner banquet. Luxuriously red tablescapes complete with floating candles and vases of fresh tulips, garden roses and burgundy peonies set the tone for a traditional yet luxurious evening under the hotel’s iconic glittering chandelier.
Boutique fitness studio Odinson has taken a vow – to help brides and grooms of Hong Kong get ready for their weddings with an eight week transformation programme, aptly named the Wonder Bride Wedding Plan and Super Groom Game Plan.
Following the studio’s philosophy of transforming the body and mind through a balance of fitness, yoga and nutrition, the programme is inspired by Odinson founder Jessica Kao’s very own wedding fitness programme which helped her achieve her dream results for her big day. With packages designed to improve clients’ overall wellbeing with a goal of looking great and feeling great, the programme incorporates the best that Odinson has to offer across personal training, yoga, meditation, through to nutrition counselling. Priced at HKD 19,200, the 2 month programme includes:
Three Private Training Sessions per Week
Over the course of eight weeks, Odinson’s results-driven trainers will design a bespoke 24 session programme to suit each client’s needs. For brides-to-be looking to stun in their backless dresses or grooms-to-be looking to fill out their suits, Odinson’s personal trainers individualise workouts to target specific areas and overall body conditioning, helping clients achieve desired results for their dream day.
Unlimited Yoga and Meditation Classes
Leave the wedding planning to someone else for 90 minutes and escape the noise with blissful yoga and meditation sessions which are unlimited for package holders. Odinson’s yoga offering ranges from Beginner Yoga, Ashtanga and Gentle Flow to more specialised classes such as ACROVINYASA, Fly yoga and Forrest Inspired Yoga taught by Odinson’s expert teachers. While yoga sessions keep muscles lean, supple and well stretched between intense workouts, meditation classes further calm the mind for complete zen amid the wedding organisation stress.
Nutrition Counselling and BioPrint
Odinson understands better than anyone else that no fitness plan is complete without a balanced diet and their in-house trainers are committed to guiding clients every step of the way. With an eye to helping brides and grooms develop an approach to healthy eating that can be easily maintained for years to come in their marital bliss.
Using cutting-edge BioPrint technology, Odinson’s experts can conduct an in-depth body composition analysis and tailor a health plan that targets specific areas of fat. While other fitness studios usually charge for additional BioPrint, Odinson views it as a key process to develop a bespoke nutrition plan which is included in nutrition counselling sessions to help provide exciting results in the shortest period of time.
Odinson’s Wonder Bride Wedding Plan and Super Groom Game Plan are now permanent offerings at the fitness studio, located conveniently in the heart of Sheung Wan. Odinson helps brides and grooms achieve their dreams for their big day!

Over 600 guests from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China gathered at one of our favourite wedding venues, the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong in January to celebrate the wedding of this lovely couple who approached us to plan their wedding with a shorter than usual lead time. A red and gold themed wedding invitation suite set the tone for a traditional yet luxurious affair.
On the wedding day, the couple enjoyed a relaxed photography session with their chosen photographer, Susan from Johnny Productions followed by a cocktail reception and a traditional ‘March In to a lavish sit-down banquet. A dramatic entrance lined with red orchid trees ushered guests towards a stunning photo backdrop of velvet roses created by Wedding Garden. Lavish arrangements, flickering red votive candles and contemporary yet elegant lanterns in traditional reds and golds on the round tables created a festive atmosphere for this happy couple and their friends and family. Cake cutting, a champagne toast and a welcome speech by the couple kicked off an evening filled with live music, love and a lot of happiness.
