The first-ever legally valid MTR Hello Kitty Dream Wedding took place today under the most splendid and joyful atmosphere, at the MTR Hong Kong Station.
Witnessed by relatives, friends and MTR passengers, bridegroom Jamie and his bride Horlick with their bridesmaids and groomsmen, boarded the first-ever MTR Hello Kitty Wedding Train and headed towards to MTR Hong Kong Station. The wedding train was specially designed for the occasion with images of Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel dressed as little cupids covering the train body and compartments. The interior was decorated with flowers and ribbons in the grandest and most romantic fashion.
The bridegroom Jamie and bride Horlick, dressed in th first-ever Hello Kitty wedding gowns jointly designed by the MTR Corporation, Sanrio and Wonderful Arts, were naturally the focus of attention. The bride, whose wedding gown was filled with Hello Kitty patterns made of Austrian crystals, glittered in sweetness with every step she took. Jamie and Horlick said “We have never imagined our romantic story in the MTR station would make us the chosen couple of such a wonderful event. We would like to thank the MTR Corporation and Sanrio again for this MTR Hello Kitty dream wedding — an experience we shall remember for the rest of our lives.”
Upon alighting from the Wedding Train, the couple was carried by a pair of rickshaws, amid cheers and blessing from MTR passengers, towards the ceremonial venue at MTR Hong Kong Station. Led by their two special guests — best man Dear Daniel and bridesmaid Hello Kitty, the couple then marched into Hong Kong Station, which had been transformed to a wedding hall of extravagance and romantic design. Under the witness of the Civil Celebrant - Mr. Samuel Chan (solicitor), Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, friends and relatives, as well as MTR passengers, Jamie and Horlick made their pledge of union, and completed this fairy-tale-like MTR Hello Kitty Dream Wedding.
For the bridegroom Jamie and the bride Horlick, traveling on the MTR together is a sweet habit of their daily life routines. It was 5 years ago when Jamie and Horlick, who were classmates at a university, met up again by chance at an MTR station after graduation day. Today under the witness of friends, relatives and MTR passengers, they are married in the first-ever legally valid MTR Hello Kitty Dream Wedding in Hong Kong. The couple thanked the MTR Corporation, for providing reliable and efficient train services over the years, and for the sweet memories they had on their MTR journeys. They would also like to thank the MTR Corporation and Sanrio Wave HK Company Limited for creating 5 “fires-ever-records” for this wedding ceremony:
