Rani and Harry Morani’s love for art, music and entertainment motivated them to venture into the world of wedding planning and they founded Hong Kong-based Revel Events. The company takes care of end-to-end services for weddings in Hong Kong and across South East Asia and is one of the leading wedding planners in the industry for over a decade now. The company’s deep expertise and top-notch reputation are a testament to Rani and Harry’s passion for delivering flawless celebrations.
In a conversation with us, co-founder Rani Morani talks about Revel Events, Hong Kong and what makes it a coveted destination for Indian weddings.
What is your elevator pitch to convince an Indian bride that Hong Kong is, in fact, the dream wedding destination that she has been looking for?
“Not only does Hong Kong have one of the most beautiful iconic skylines in the world but it is also a hidden gem when it comes to nature and picturesque sceneries. It has mountains, beaches, and the sea. Very rarely does one get all of it in one city and a wedding here ensures that these myriad breathtaking backdrops set the most remarkable stage on your big day.”
Name three wedding venues and tell us why they would suit the following kinds of brides:
a) The Romantic
b) The Glamorous
c) The Vintage
(a) For the romantic bride who would love a getaway feel – the Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel would be ideal. It has multiple venues within the property. For example, there’s a driveway which can be used for the baraat, and their outdoor locations are some of the dreamiest for a mandap setup.
b) Having done multiple events at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, I know that this hotel is perfect for the glamorous bride. This property too has a variety of venues to choose from, but the highlight here is their outlet called Ozone which is the highest bar in the world!
c) The Verandah at Repulse Bay is the hotel that I would highly recommend to the bride who would like to add a vintage touch to her nuptials. This one is an elegant place with an undeniable old-school charm and is sure to please her taste.”
Tell us about a wedding experience that couples can only find in Hong Kong/can extend to their guests if they host their wedding in Hong Kong.
“Although I have mentioned Ozone at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong earlier, it deserves a mention here as well. A party over here would enable the couple to offer to their guests some of the marvelous views of the city that they would have never seen before. Apart from this, celebrations here will let them extend to their loved ones some of the most delectable cuisines. Hong Kong is known to be a gourmet paradise where one can devour all sorts of authentic cuisines from around the world.”
What are the three elements you would include at a wedding reception so that the event is a memorable one?
“A great event is one that entices all your senses. Keeping that in mind it’s important to give your guests a great spread with a good selection of booze. Second, on the list would be captivating entertainment such as a rocking band that would let the guests dance the night away. And the third thing that I would add is interactive decor. This has been gaining a lot of popularity recently and helps build interest and curiosity since the element is yet to be explored to its fullest.”
Name a property where you haven’t planned a wedding yet but can’t wait for the first opportunity to do so? What makes it so enticing?
“Disneyland! We have done events there, but we have never had the chance to plan a wedding on the premises. The vibe over there is so magical that the celebrations are sure to have a fairytale-like quality which would make for quite an experience.”
Tell us about the most memorable wedding that you have ever planned.
“We fall in love with all of the projects that we work on and each wedding is so special. There are so many ideas, thought and effort that goes in making the next event better than the last and making it more memorable that it is impossible to pick one out of all. Moreover being a part of someone’s happiness is a memorable experience in itself!”
