Picture Perfect Chapels Set Scene For Dream Weddings at Ritz-Carltons

August 4, 2016 -

One of the best-kept secrets of The Ritz-Carlton is its private showcase of stunning chapels located inside its properties from Bali to Portugal, creating a memorable setting for couples on the start of their dream wedding.

Vows are pledged under a stunning canopy of blue skies with the Indian Ocean as a backdrop bringing nature into the comfort of a modern chapel setting. This enchanting Bali beach setting is the epitome of a destination wedding.

In Japan’s capital of modern design and pleasing aesthetics, the contemporary gothic-style chapel in The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo underlines true elegance with its Swarovski glass wall designed by artist Mari Noguchi. Symbolizing light, air and flowing water, the chapel is a temple of enchanting ambience marrying Japanese hues of purple furnishings amid soft woods and Italian marble design in black and white, making it the perfect venue for Japanese or Western ceremonies. One of the most significant features of this chapel is that the cross and the altar can be temporarily removed and converted into a Japanese wedding or ceremony room.

Located in the heart of Midtown Tokyo, The Ritz-Carlton affords glittering views of Tokyo and even Mount Fuji from its guestrooms, restaurants and spa, with a supporting cast of ladies and gentlemen who expertly play their role in creating a wedding to remember.

Located in the Gateway of Western Japan where ancient traditions are revered and modernity is embraced, The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka in the prestigious district of Nishi-Umeda, is in a class of its own with its elegant serenity and poise in the heart of the city. Its distinctive wedding chapel pays homage to the artisans of the Italian chapels of the renaissance era with the fine detail of Japanese craftsmanship.

Wedding planners at The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka are the crème of wedding dream makers, setting a new standard in romantic elegance. The atelier features a selection of more than 200 bridal gowns for brides-to-be and with choice of 21 ballroom and reception spaces overlooking the city, even the wildest romantic fantasies can be brought to life.

With an unrivaled level of elegance and design in China’s capital city, The Ritz-Carlton, Beijing transports guests to an English Country Manor. Unexpected yet warmly familiar, the wedding experience sets a standard that wedding planners seek to emulate. With the only wedding chapel within a hotel in Beijing, the space offers a unique flow from ceremony through to the reception with private salons for relaxation in between the highlights.

Classically appointed with a soft palette of colors, the wedding chapel features white marble throughout with stone accents and crystal chandeliers that gently bathe the space in a warm romantic ambience throughout. The chapel leads to a romantic outdoor garden for wedding cocktails, reminiscent of the English countryside, a haven of romance in a bustling city.
Located in the southernmost part of China, on an island known as the Hawaii of the East, is the only wedding chapel on the island also on the ocean resides at The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya.

With spectacular white sand beaches of Yalong Bay and the crystal clear waters of the South China Sea in view, the magnificent chapel takes full advantage of its tropical location with a full 180-degree view of the ocean, as couples commence their journey against a backdrop that is romantic and stunningly elegant.

In Portugal, perched high in the Sintra Mountains of the temperate Estoril coastal region, lies the Penha Longa Resort, with views over the azure waves of the Atlantic Ocean. This picturesque medieval monastery and palace offers a jaw-dropping historical hallowed landmark for the bridal party.

The 16th century chapel is a unique treasure in the pantheon of Ritz-Carlton wedding venues with its ornate iconography that exudes romance, solemnity and majesty in one breathtaking space.
Evidence of the Mudejar tradition with its elaborate tiling, plaster carvings with ornamental metalwork reinforce the classical clerical tradition throughout the resort. With a stunning supporting cast of reception venues from the Salao Nobre that leads from the palace into the manicured gardens, to the emblematic Coroa, and the former stable called the Sala Dos Arcos with its soaring arches. Once a resting place for horses, it now hosts the sounds of memories being created and families celebrating their future.
