Marriage proposals can definitely make some men scratch their heads, but whether it be perfectly planned or impulsively decided, conveying sincerity is the most important. For the below celebrities’ proposals, it shows that it doesn’t matter how fancy or simple the proposal is because promise and love are all that’s needed.
- Jason Chan (陳智燊) and Sarah Song (宋熙年)
Currently busy taking care of their almost five-month old baby, Sarah and Jason met and grew closer while hosting TVB’s lifestyle program together. Initially friends, they took a few years to deeply understand each other before officially dating.
After nine years, Jason nervously popped the big question. He asked the film crew for leave, but allowed Sarah to assume he had work. He then waited for her to leave for Australia to celebrate her dad’s 60th birthday, and quickly grabbed his luggage to head to the airport. Arriving in Sydney, he surprised her and she said, ‘yes’.
- Jordan Chan (陳小春) and Cherrie Ying (應采兒)
Jordan’s proposal to Cherrie was revealed in Mainland Chinese reality show, Viva La Romance < 妻子的浪漫旅行>. The proposal was videotaped at the time, and Jordan was kneeling down crying and stuttering while trying to propose to Cherrie. Covering her mouth with tears welled up in her eyes, she waited for him to say his words. But struggling with inexplicable emotions, Jordan couldn’t clearly ask the question. He kept on saying, “Er…I don’t know what to say.”
Watching him struggling, Cherrie’s parents laughed and said, “Already crying? It’s such happy news! If you won’t say it, then I’ll help you say it.” Eventually, Jordan managed to choke out the words, “You know what I want to say, yeah…marry me…” Without a romantic speech, they sealed their promise to each other.
- Eric Suen (孙耀威) and Macy Chan (陳美詩)
Finally tying the knot in 2017 after eight years of dating, Eric shared that he didn’t know how to propose. He said, “My sister lives in Switzerland, and I visit her every year. There is a dessert shop that my wife really likes. Because I didn’t know how to propose, I hired the entire shop and told the owner about my plans. When she ordered the dessert, the staff brought out the ring, flowers, and champagne. I wanted to pop the question when I knelt down, but I was too overwhelmed and cried instead. She saw me cry, and knelt down along with me and cried as well. After a while, we collected ourselves and took photos.”
- Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) and Nicole Lee (李潔瑩)
In an interview, Lai Lok Yi shared, “I personally believe in metaphysics, so when a feng shui master said that I have to get married or else I have to wait for three years later, I woke up Nicole who was sleeping next to me and told her, ‘Let’s get married.’ She responded, ‘Just like this? No proposal at all?’ She then told me to go buy a ring, but a few hours later she said she would choose the ring and I should go pay for it. Since she has to wear it for a lifetime, she couldn’t trust my taste.”
After that, the couple headed to a restaurant to do a proper proposal, but Lok Yi told his wife that there was no point since she already knew. They continued anyway and after proposing, Nicole said it wasn’t romantic. Lok Yi said it was expected because she already knew.
- Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) and Jeremy Leung
Meeting in Hong Kong but developing their relationship and eventual marriage in Canada, Linda said that her husband’s proposal wasn’t romantic, but she was moved to tears. “He’s not a romantic person, but he’s sincere. There was a lot of funny blunders in the middle because he was so nervous. He knelt but saw people and was scared that photos would be taken, so he quickly stood back up. A lot of blunders, but very funny. It’s like a comedic film proposal.”
- Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) and Wang Feng (汪峰)
On Zhang Zi Yi’s 36th birthday, Wang Feng spent over a hundred thousand yuan to give Ziyi a surprise birthday party and proposal. With fireworks in the background and a huge cake on the side, he used a camera drone to gift her a nine-carat diamond ring. He then knelt down and gave his speech, “Even when we’re old, I’ll still take care of you.” Ziyi cried in happiness and responded, “yes”.
- Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) and Sergio Crespo Gutes
Gigi met Sergio while vacationing in Spain. Dating for half a year, Sergio secretly planned a proposal. When Gigi wasn’t in Hong Kong, he asked Gigi mother’s to let him in the house and arranged the furniture to show the words, ‘Marry Me’. However, Gigi said that it was unfortunate, because she had high fever that night and told him to drive her to the hospital. She didn’t answer him, so after a week she booked a hotel room and used Post-it notes to create a ‘Yes’ on the window as a response.
- Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅) and Real Ting (丁子高)
With his background in public relations, Real used his creativity to ask Miriam to become his wife. Travelling to United States together, Real decided it was time to take responsibility. Using Miriam’s previous comment as the lead in which she said, “I’ll need to countdown after I pass 30 years old,” he responded to it with, “If it’s like that, then we’ll have to cherish it. Let me walk beside you down that path.” The two decided to spontaneously drive to Las Vegas and register their marriage before notifying both of their parents.
- Timmy Hung (洪天明) and Janet Chow (周家蔚)

Taking a deep breath, he said, “We are two different people. I was a children’s show host and you were a beauty queen. I am very short and you are very tall. I am very complicated and you are very pure. I’ll be very lucky to marry you! Every day is a blessing.” With over ten thousand viewers watching live, it was hard for Leanne to say no.
