Summer Narrative Wedding Open House

Drawing inspiration from the joy of summer, this immersive Open House bloomed to life in a stunning explosion of colours. Couples were introduced to a wonderland of dreamy settings, ideal for hosting fairytale celebrations that blend classical elegance with contemporary flair. The summer theme was reflected through fashion trends, culinary creations and decor, including a magnificent carpet made entirely of flowers.

One of the highlights of the event was the wedding dress fashion show at the Crystal Bridge, a wedding venue that was imaginatively adorned in a palette of pastels. Designed to transport guests to a world of beauty and fantasy, this function space offers an ethereal backdrop for everlasting memories.

Guests were also invited to sample artisanal summer cocktails, crafted exclusively for weddings by the Hotel’s skillful mixologist, William Zhu. Blending premium spirits with tea infusions, each exquisite drink is elevated with seasonal accents like herbs, spices, leaves, seeds and nuts. Also on the menu is an array of signature mocktails, offering the traditionally rich flavour, aroma and mouthfeel of liquor.

Wedding Celebrations at Four Seasons

Coveted by planners and couples alike, Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake offers an unparalleled wedding destination. Framed by breathtaking views of the serene waters and manicured gardens of West Lake, a collection of magical venues brings each love story to life in exemplary style and luxury.

The fairytale begins as one walks down the garden aisle to the Water Bridge, a spellbinding location for couples to pledge their love and commitment to each other. Or discover an alluring oasis at the Wedding Garden, a scenic setting for lovers to exchange vows and begin their new journey together. Couples can also host their ceremony and reception at the grand Ballroom, with each personalized celebration showcasing Four Seasons’ meticulous attention to detail.

Reflecting the award-winning creativity and finesse of Jin Sha, the Chinese Wedding Menu offers a masterful symphony of flavours and textures. Jin Sha holds a Michelin star and has been the only Black Pearl Three-Diamond restaurant in town for six consecutive years. Led by the craftsmanship of Chef Wang Yong, a mogul of Zhejiang cuisine, the team curates a variety of superb culinary experiences for weddings. From Braised Pork Belly and Abalone with Dried Bamboo to Crispy Chicken and Steamed San Men Crab, selected signature dishes are impeccably customized according to prized seasonal ingredients and each couple’s preferences.

The Western Wedding Menu is crafted by West Lake Bistro, the premier Italian restaurant in Hangzhou. Chef Wilson Leung blends traditional Italian tastes with modern cooking techniques to create unique tastebud memories for the newlyweds and their guests. Prepared with rigorously chosen ingredients, specialties include the ultra-flavourful Miso Codfish; the tender Australian Wagyu M5 Tenderloin with rosemary and garlic; and the rich and creamy Valrhona milk chocolate.

Tailored for Two: Couples’ Indulgences

To set the stage for their special day, couples are invited to rejuvenate with the luxurious Five Elements Massage at The Spa. A healing blend of ancient Eastern techniques and modern massage style, this treatment is designed to balance the five natural elements within the body — fire, water, earth, metal and wood. As tension is released and vitality restored, discover a wonderful sense of renewal.

After celebrating their nuptials with family and friends, the newlyweds can embark on a Hangzhou Romantic Exploration, curated by the Four Seasons concierge. The thoughtfully designed route brings alive the city’s romance and charm, a delightful way for couples to begin their new adventure together and make the memories of a lifetime.

The Hotel also offers themed accommodation for the lovebirds, with the Wedding Guest Room offering a sanctuary of serene hues, exquisite artistry and bespoke amenities.
