The Popular HK Marriage Registry

Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry is one of the most popular Official Marriage Registry sites in Hong Kong. At Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry, your wedding will be celebrated by an Official Deputy Registrar of Marriages who will sign on your HK Marriage Certificate.

History of Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry

Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry is accommodated in the Rawlinson House which was one of the 19th-century Old Victoria Barracks buildings in HK (Old Victoria Barracks was one of the first British military compounds in HK). Rawlinson House was built in the early 1900s as two Warrant Officer's Married Quarters and later converted into a single residence for the Chief of Staff, who was also the Deputy Commander British Forces. It was named after the Second World War after General Sir Henry Rawlinson (1864-1925). The front facade is enclosed with balustraded verandahs, moulded string courses, column capitals, cornices and a parapet wall. The Rawlinson House building is two storeys high raised off the ground on low arches (now blocked up). The architectural style is Edwardian Classical Revival. The Ground Floor has been turned into Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry in the 1980s, while the First Floor is now being used as the Park Management Office.

The building is a rare piece of built heritage and deserves sympathetic restoration. As one of the surviving blocks of old Victoria Barracks, it has historical and local interest. It is designated as the Grade I Historic Building on 18 Dec 2009 by the HK Government.

Featuring Place for Marriage Ceremony

The Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry is situated at the 8-hectare Hong Kong Park which is surrounded by a wall of skyscrapers in the highly urbanized central business district. 

Hong Kong Park is one of the most unusual city parks in the world, in the way its deliberate design blends in with the natural landscape. The design of the park has won the American Institute of Architects Hong Kong Chapter's Honour Award for Urban Design in 1998. The Hong Kong Park has a wide range of facilities which includes gardens, greenhouses, fountains, artificial lakes, waterfalls, playgrounds, sports centre, restaurant and museums. One of its impressive feature is the Edward Youde Aviary, named after a HK nature-loving former Governor. This huge enclosure simulating the tropical rain forest houses 800 birds representing 150 different species, making it a very special photo-shooting venue for the wedding couples at Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry.  

Adjoining the artificial lake at the central of the Hong Kong Park, walking along the lakeside path is the Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry, where thousands of couples are holding their wedding ceremony every year. Opposite to the Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry is the Olympic Square, a terraced, open-air theater modeled on a Greek amphitheater, offers a spacious area for photo-shooting.
