Grand Park Hotel - Actual Wedding Review

Attended my cousin's wedding at Grand Park Hotel in December 2009. In my earlier write up on Grand Park Hotel wedding show, i raved about the pretty and pillarless ballroom. The nice reception and the nice bridal suite. For recap, please see here.

This is an actual wedding review particularly on the food and service during this dinner.
The reception table for receiving guests is pretty and bright.
The reception area in its full glamour.

For the dinner, red and gold is chosen for the VIP table and gold for all other guests. The ballroom decoration is similar to my visit previously so no pictures are shown on the ballroom for the night.

I like the ambience of the ballroom before the wedding. Give's one a feeling of anticipation huh?

During the dinner reception, canapes and some light snacks are served. I like the pretty mocktail. Nice to drink and a very good appetiser.

The spotlight on the newlyweds during wedding dinner. And with that LET'S GET THE PARTY STARTED.

The 8 dish menu for the night:
1. Suckling Pig Combination
I love the colourchanging lovebirds display. Entranced by it and its quite different from the usual candles.

2. Braised Shark Fin's Soup with Four Treasures
I got a huge serving of the shark fin. At least, its not pure soup with no fins or just crab meat.

3. Stir-fried fresh scallops, asparagus with macadamia nuts in XO sauce
This is quite the usual fare from chinese restaurants.

4. Deep-fried large prawns in Wasabi Sauce Topped with Sesame Seeds
Personally don't like this dish as i find this too creamy and unwasabi-ish.

5. Steamed red groupa in Hong Kong Style
6. Roast Duck "Canton Style"
7. Fried Udon noodles with Seafood
8. Chilled cream of mango with sago and Pomelo
The entire food selection is fairly standard and appetising. I would say it doesn't surprise nor dissappoint unless you are really peculiar on food.

The second march in came with my favourite bubble effect. This is also a photographer's best mood cum effect opportunity. The dry ice effect doesn't look appealling on photos.

And the wedding favours?

The service for the night is good. The food being promptly served and drinks replenished. It has been quite a pleasant and fuss free evening.
