This is probably the most romantic, fairy tale-like Asian celebrity wedding for the start of the year! On 17th January 2015, Mandopop singer/songwriter, Jay Chou (周杰倫) has finally tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend (not anymore!) beau and model, Hannah Quinlivan in not one, but TWO locations- Yorkshire, Northern England and Taipei, Taiwan.

As we can see from the video, Hannah’s dress is a show-stopper! Custom made by a team of European designers from elite Taiwan bridal boutique, Sophia Wedding, under her design specifications, with the gorgeously intricate heart-shaped laced open back design. Let’s not to mention the few feet long white tail behind the dress!Simply breathtaking: Details of Hannah’s dress from the back
Jay had two best men with him at his wedding; Fitness instructor, Chen Hong Jing, and The Drifters’ Darren Khoo. They were both wearing black tuxedos followed by a maroon and baby pink bow tie. Hannah’s close girl friends, Beatrice Fang and Sun Rui, both wore cute and pink above-the-knee puffy baby doll dresses that accompanied the couple’s fairy tale wedding theme very nicely.

Of course, how can we forget their details of the wedding cakes and sweet miniature finger foods? The colours for their wedding theme were mostly baby pink, gold and white- fit for sweet celebrity royalty.
Now, girls, it’s time to stop sobbing with envy because next are the pictures from their recent second wedding at Taipei! This time, the couple went for a more casual, colourful and circus-themed wedding bash. The Taiwanese singer added that this wedding was specially held for his maternal grandmother, who is unable to take long flights, referring to his wedding on 17th January at Selby Abbey in Yorkshire, North England. The second wedding was held yesterday, 9th February, at W Hotel located in Taipei, Taiwan.
