Born in Toronto, Canada, twenty-eight-year-old Janet Chow won the 2006 Miss Hong Kong first-runner up title. Rumors circulated that Janet was in the early stages of her pregnancy; the bride was spotted with a slight belly protrusion during a gown fitting. Although Janet denied her pregnancy on several occasions, she also said that she would love to have a “dragon” baby.
The Bridal Party
Janet and Timmy were a very social couple who possessed many friends in the entertainment industry. Eager to include her closest friends as witnesses to one of the happiest days in her life, Janet’s bridal party consisted of 28 bridesmaids, including Angela Tong (湯盈盈), Toby Leung (梁靖琪), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), Margaret Chung (鍾麗淇), and Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠).
Janet spent a five-figure sum and especially designed a set of lingerie and gold-leaf soap gifts for her bridesmaids. In their speech at the wedding banquet, the bridesmaids shared their fondest memories of their friendship with Janet.
Timmy’s ten groomsmen consisted primarily of his good friends at TVB, including Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂), Michael Tse (謝天華), Frankie Lam (林文龍), and Carlo Ng (吳家樂).

An additional celebration party was held on Friday, March 23rd, with the attendance of Janet and Timmy’s closest friends, a total of 800 guests. The party carried a leopard theme.
