May & River's wedding last Saturday was an untraditional one in that first there was no big red wedding invitation card. Instead they published it as a newspaper issue making their wedding a cover story. Second they wanted to make their wedding banquet a party where the spotlight went to the guests rather than solely on themselves. After a simple but solemn wedding ceremony at the Rosary Church Kowloon, all of us set out towards Jumbo Floating Restaurant for the party. It was held at the Top Deck where a casual Western buffet was served. With this East meets West setting, guests were free to dine in the antique indoor dining room or gathered for a drink on the sofa at the deck outside.
As the couple emphasized, this was not just a wedding banquet, but it is also a Christmas party they prepared for all their dear family and friends. So apart from the usual cut cake and toasting ceremony, there were also games for the children and a Christmas draw for winding up the party. This was really a successful one as I can see all the guests had a great time! I must say this should be the warmest and most thoughtful wedding ceremony I have attended this year!
