China’s 33-year-old Olympic “Diving Queen” Guo Jingjing (郭晶晶) and 31-year-old Kenneth Fok
(霍啟剛 ), grandson of the late Hong Kong tycoon Henry Fok (霍英東), tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Fok’s residence in Hong Kong yesterday. The wedding celebration was rumored to cost upwards of $300 million Hong Kong dollars. However, for Kenneth, it was a priceless moment to finally walk down the aisle with his girlfriend of 8 years.

The preparations for the festivities started the evening prior with the crew decorating the residence and preparing the food. On the morning of the ceremony, Jingjing arrived at the residence along with her parents and her bridesmaids, all dressed in off-shoulder light orange gowns. Around 10 AM, Kenneth’s parents arrived and shortly after, other family members, relatives and guests  promptly arrived in time for the noon ceremony.

With approximately 100 guests in attendance, the ceremony began with the flower girls walking down the aisle followed by the 4 bridesmaids. Jingjing, looking classy in a gorgeous low-cut wedding gown and a long veil, linked arms with her father to walk down the aisle along with a big smile on her face.

The 45-minute ceremony was officiated by Basic Law Committee former deputy director Elsie Leung (梁愛詩). When Elsie asked the couple to say their vows, Jingjing was emotional and fought back tears of happiness while Fok’s smile beamed proudly. When they were finally pronounced as husband and wife, the newlyweds kissed passionately for 30 seconds, which was the highlight of the romantic and sweet ceremony.

Guests feasted on a buffet lunch and had plenty of opportunities to take photos and send their well wishes to the newlyweds.

While the couple declined media interviews, they released a few photos from the joyous occasion to the public. Through the photos, their joy and love for one another was undeniable.

    She has sleepy eyes ( zzzzzzzzz). Looks like she’s high or really sleepy.

    Speaking from the video clip, the wedding doesn’t look that extravaganza to be $300M? Maybe bc the quality and the high end costs. I need to see more pictures esp when it’s $300M.

      I think they are referring to the whole wedding costing 300M. They will also be holding another banquet in Hong Kong and China.

      There is a difference between understated elegance and tasteless extravagance.

    She never really looks “happy” or “smiley” to me.. for some reason, she always looks held back and stiff. Hopefully she really had a big, genuine smile on her wedding day (though it doesn’t show in these pictures).

    I think you mixed up the ages; Guo Jingjing is 31 and Kenneth Fok is 33.

      LOL!

      Does it really matter? It falls within the margin of error.

      It is refreshing to see a couple who is age appropriate to each tying the knot than the nauseating and usual affair of middle-aged guy/late-teen early 20s coupling that is quite common in HK.

        I’m with Terminator.. does it really matter? Besides, Guo Jingjing does look older and more “mature” than Kenneth, so I’m not surprised if she is older.

    Thanks GOD! IT would have sucked if they didn’t marry after he put her on blast with those early Karaoke Room photos.

    It must be love, right? Too bad the family patriarch didn’t get to see it. He was a famous Leftist who I was told was very patirotic but wikipedia makes him sound a like some kind of arms dealer and possibly anti-American! Whoa!
