For those seeking experiences out of the ordinary, bookmark these alternative wedding venues in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is not short of wedding packages and beautiful wedding venues, but what about spaces that are equal parts beautiful and unique? While it’s true that Hong Kong’s lack of space precludes it from having an eclectic rundown of options, that isn’t to say there are none. Though they may take a little more effort to hunt down, alternative wedding venues in Hong Kong do exist. Here are some of our favourites.
Amtarda – For a Phuket wedding in Hong Kong
Doubling as a Thai restaurant and a hotel, Amtarda offers sweeping views that set the perfect backdrop for a wedding. Surrounded by the rolling hills of Hong Kong, we can’t think of a more magical wedding venue to say “I do”.
Capacity: Up to 80 guests.
Bathers – For a breezy beach wedding
Think an exotic beach ceremony is reserved for destination weddings only? Think again. Sea views and sand are the order of the day at waterfront restaurant Bathers, sitting pretty on Lantau’s Lower Cheung Sha Beach. The folks at Bathers are experienced professionals in all things weddings, including event management, audio-visual requirements, and event concepts and decorations.
Capacity: Up to 100 guests.
Crown Wine Cellars – For a wedding venue with history
Historically significant event sites are hard to come by in Hong Kong, making this pre-World War II military bunker turned modern wine cellar (declared a UNESCO Asia Pacific Heritage site!) all the more special. The stand out space here is the 1,500-square foot colonial styled conservatory, which boasts an abundance of natural light.
Capacity: Up to 30 guests.
FWD House 1881 – For a traditional yet intimate wedding
If you want to get wed in a venue that feels straight out of the Victorian Era, look to FWD House 1881. Located in the prime location of Tsim Sha Tsui, it’s perfect for larger scale ceremonies, as well as intimate gatherings. We personally would say yes in a heartbeat to a ceremony in the courtyard or the Moon Garden!
Capacity: Varies from room to room.

The Grassland – For a lush, forest wedding
Despite being only a 10-minute drive away from Hang Hau MTR Station, this secluded outdoor venue feels worlds away from civilisation. Nestled in the mountains of Clear Water Bay, the venue can set you up with a fairy light canopy that will light up your dinner table at night, as well as catering and other decorations.
Capacity: Up to 250 guests.

The Lake House – For a wedding venue that feels out of Hong Kong
A wedding by the lake is possible in Hong Kong? Yes it is! The Lake House boasts a stunning all-white exterior and also has a waterfront that was made for wedding ceremonies. You can also arrange a banquet dinner or lunch at Le Vow and Billow (good food is sorted!).
Capacity: Varies depending on the locations within The Lake House.

One-Thirtyone – For an intimate alfresco affair

The Pine House – For the perfect garden wedding
For a beautiful, lush garden wedding, The Pine House is an underrated option. The two-storey French style villa is apt for housing guests for both intimate banquets as well as more elaborate cocktail parties.

Capacity: Maximum of 200 guests.

Pomegranate Kitchen – For a wedding with good food guaranteed
It can be tempting to “go big or go home” when planning a wedding, but we’re firm believers in the inherent chicness of a quietly understated approach. Enter Pomegranate Kitchen, a striking minimalist venue complete with an open-plan kitchen and over 2,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space.
Capacity: Maximum of 140 standing guests (outside) or 80 standing (inside).
Star Ferry – For a very Hong Kong wedding
A Hong Kong wedding deserves a suitably Hong Kong backdrop. And we can’t think of a better one than the Harbourfront – aboard the iconic Star Ferry no less. Whether for reception cocktails or the actual ceremony itself, couples can take their pick from four charming double decker boats for hire.
Capacity: Up to 150 guests.
