CHIBA, Japan - Hilton Tokyo Bay, a Tokyo Disney Resort® Official Hotel, is very proud to announce the scheduled unveiling of "PrimaLuce", an innovative wedding concept, in July 2012. The new concept is specially designed to revolutionize the most special of occasions through a unique combination of a resort-inspired villa setting, exceptional style and world-class service.

"The name 'PrimaLuce' means 'dawn' in Italian, and is apt for this innovative concept since a marriage often represents the "dawn" of a new life together for a newly wedded couple," explains Hilton Tokyo Bay's General Manager Frederic Lucron. "We wanted to create something extraordinary that will offer a very special place in the form of an elegant villa for this important moment. After all, it is the greatest day for a couple and their guests who have come to witness the celebration, and the setting should therefore reflect that."

The new-style wedding villa integrates every feature and dedicated space a sophisticated wedding experience needs from start to finish: a private chapel, banquet room, guests' waiting room, bride's rooms, gardens and a wedding bell terrace. All components, such as the chapel, banquet room and the guests' waiting room, are conveniently connected via an elegant corridor evoking the chic, simple modernistic style of a villa. The bespoke villa simultaneously provides seclusion from the hotel's main property while retaining all the benefits of the global hotel's professional services.

At the heart of "PrimaLuce," is a resort ambience showcasing the beauty of nature through key natural elements like "light", "green" and "water". Every detail has been carefully thought through including creating a special sense of occasion at important moments. For instance, the doors of the serene chapel open to reveal a dramatic pure white scene: panoramic glass windows provide natural sunlight as glistening water from an elegant fountain and Tokyo Bay provide the perfect showcase for a bride and groom's marital vows. Think of a newly-wed couple enveloped in soft natural sunlight as they celebrate within an exotic island setting. The scene may be further customized with a modern high tech personal touch: six ceiling projectors are on hand to create a variety of 'visions.'

Hilton Tokyo Bay's dedicated team of wedding is on hand to help translate the perfect dream wedding into the most wonderful experience with memories to last a lifetime.
