Celebrity Weddings: Gigi Leung and Sergio
Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) and Spanish boyfriend, Sergio, got married in Ibiza, Spain on October 3, 2011. With the wedding ceremony taking place on a beach, the newlyweds shed tears of happiness upon exchanging marriage vows. Gigi described her wedding day as if it were a dream. The bride followed Spanish wedding tradition and gave the groom a watch valued at $90,000 HKD!
In recent years, 35-year-old Gigi Leung appeared to prefer European men. Marrying boyfriend of 5-months, Sergio, Gigi quickly ended her bachelorette life and even got married on the eve before ex-boyfriend, Ekin Cheng’s (鄭伊健) 44th birthday!
Gigi and Sergio’s wedding celebration incorporated both western and eastern elements. The groom appeared to be highly respectful towards Gigi’s mother and took care of the guests of the Leung family at the wedding.
Anxious prior to her wedding day, Gigi shed tears of happiness. Gigi had selected platinum wedding rings which featured a rose theme. When the couple were officially pronounced husband and wife at the marriage ceremony, which was held on the beach, Gigi declared that her dream had come true! “Sergio truly treats me very well. I never thought that I will encounter a person who treats me so well, a man who is very attentive and makes each day together appear like a dream! My mother and younger brother like him a lot too! Even my friends are full of compliments towards Sergio. I feel truly blissful!”
Marrying a beautiful bride, Sergio noted that he was the luckiest man in the world! Sergio spent a lavish sum of $4 million HKD to give his beloved wife a romantic, white-themed wedding. Sergio booked the beach grounds of the hotel for the ceremony and allowed his family and friends to book the airplane tickets and arrive on location to take care of the wedding arrangements. Sergio found a designer in Spain to custom tailor Gigi’s wedding gown. Many of the wedding guests also wore white.
Will Continue to Work After Marriage
Although she married a European man, Gigi followed custom Chinese wedding traditions. The night before the wedding day, Gigi’s mother performed the traditional hair combing ritual for Gigi. While her mother combed her hair and uttered wishes of happiness, Gigi bit back her tears. However, the other people observing the hair combing ritual started crying instead.
Holding a low-profile wedding, Gigi and Sergio invited eighty family and friends from both sides of the family. The guests arrived from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, Great Britain and the United States to attend the wedding celebration in Spain. The guests included Gigi’s good friends in the entertainment industry such as Charlie Yeung (楊采妮), Valen Hsu (許茹芸), and Chen Shaoqi (陳少琪). Career-minded Gigi will continue to work after marriage, as she expressed passion for the performance arts. Sergio supported Gigi’s desire to continue working after marriage as well.
