[Celebrity Weddings] Anjaylia Chan Marries First Love

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.”

      1. @oks18 it’s a weird name lol, so i get theyenman’s comment. but lots of names are weird. and i did learn something new – didn’t know it’s a greek/bible name.

  2. This day so many people came up with a weird names and I haven’t heard of Anjaylia name before until now. I thought that girl winki Lai is her good friend too but she’s not in the picture unless she’s busy with something. Congratulations to the couple.

    1. @cutie777 Winki Lai did go. I saw photos of her at the banquet. She’s currently a few months pregnant so that’s probably why she wasn’t at the island.

      1. @cutie777 Looks like he’s a theater actor named 梁子峰. Says they’ve been together since 2012. They registered their marriage August 2017. I actually have no idea who she is besides being Grace Chan’s friend.

  3. LOL..haha …. and we thought the name Angelababy was weird. Lord, wonder if their parents or they named themselves after 😀

  4. Congratulations to the couple. They look so sweet together, very suitable couple. However, Epaphras doesn’t seem to look fully Chinese, I wonder if he is mixed? Anjaylia is not fully Chinese either if I’m not mistaken. I’ve read she’s a mixed with Indian or some other Asian ethnicity. I like how they kept the wedding simple despite Epaphras wealthy background.

  5. With names like Epaphras and Anjaylia … they’re well-matched.

    It will be interesting to see what namely-names they come up with for their poor kid/s.
