Congratulations! 27-year-old Blue Veins <殭> actress Anjaylia Chan (陳嘉寶) and Epaphras Wong (黃頌祈), a water-skiing instructor who hails from a wealthy family, tied the knot in a traditional Cheung Chau wedding ceremony on Sunday, November 26. The couple celebrated their marriage with close family, friends, and neighbors.
The couple followed traditional Chinese and Cheung Chau wedding customs. That morning, Epaphras and his groomsmen arrived at the InterContinental Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui to fight for Anjaylia’s hand in marriage. Afterwards, Epaphras and Anjaylia went to the island of Cheung Chau, Epaphras’ ancestral hometown, by ferry. Following traditional Cheung Chau customs, Anjaylia was greeted by a large bridal sedan chair and Cheung Chau locals. Epaphras carried Anjaylia became home, officially entering the home of the Wong family.
Despite Epaphras’s wealth, Anjaylia wore a humble bridal gown. She was not drowned with golden jewelry and only wore a single golden pig around her neck. She had four pairs of golden bangles on both wrists. Epaphras, on the other hand, wore only a golden ring.
That evening, Epaphras and Anjaylia held their wedding banquet at the InterContinental Hotel. Many close friends were in attendance; Anjaylia’s Blue Veins costar Grace Chan (陳凱琳), Never Dance Alone <女人俱樂部> costar Jeannie Chan (陳瀅), and Evelyn Choi (蔡穎恩) were her bridesmaids.
Epaphras shared that her bridesmaids had forced him to impersonate Anjaylia’s favorite Sailor Moon character during their wedding door games. He said, “Yes, I pretended to be Usagi (Sailor Moon). She’s been begging me to do it for a long time, and now I can finally fulfill that wish of hers.” Epaphras said Anjaylia’s bridesmaids were actually very nice to him, “They were actually very gentle with me! It was simpler things, like plucking toe hairs and drinking lemon juice.”
Asking the couple if they have any big plans after marriage, Anjaylia said, “My work schedule is packed up to January of next year. We have to postpone our honeymoon.” What about getting pregnant? “My mother said to let nature take its course,” said Epaphras. “There’s no pressure.” When speaking about their wedding vows to each other, Epaphras said, “I’ll let her buy whatever she wants.” Anjaylia clarified, “My friends wrote that down, because they know I like to buy useless things.”
