After registering their marriage last year, 29-year-old Cecilia Liu (劉詩詩) and 45-year-old Nicky Wu (吳奇隆) held their wedding banquet in Bali, Indonesia on March 20. Romantically linked since 2011’s Bu Bu Jing Xin <步步驚心>, the couple finally declared their dating status in 2013. Nicky vows to treasure Cecilia as his wife, and hopes that they can have five children.
The couple was asked how many children they plan to have. When Nicky said he wanted five children, Justin Yuan (袁弘) joked, “You have to ‘battle’ every day until morning then!” Nicky retorted, “Every day, we’ll be happy until morning.”
During the exchange of wedding vows, Nicky declared, “It was more than once that I complained about God. I thought that God didn’t treat me fairly, letting me go through many strange ordeals and unhappy events. Now, I understand why. He was saving the best for last to give me.” Lifting Cecilia’s veil, Nicky kissed the bride for ten seconds and scooped her up in his arms for a full spin.
To give Cecilia a memorable wedding, Nicky spent 20 million RMB and even booked six airplanes to transport flowers, equipment, and attire for the wedding. Over 400,000 flowers were flown directly from Ecuador and the Netherlands to decorate their exclusive beach-side wedding venue, Ayana Sky Lawn. Cecilia wore a custom-designed wedding gown from Carven which cost 3.6 million RMB. Nicky wore a gray Dolce and Gabbana suit.
Close Friends Celebrate Marriage Union
While the lavish details impressed, it was the attendance of the couple’s close friends that made the wedding unforgettable. Nicky invited Alec Su (蘇有朋) and Julian Chen (陳志朋) to be his groomsmen, which led to a Little Tigers Team reunion. The trio sang songs during the bridal games in the morning as well as at the evening banquet. Being Nicky’s Best Man was not an easy task, as Alec revealed that he woke up at 6 a.m. that morning to help out Nicky. Alec said, “People come to Bali to vacation, but I have such a big workload! I’ve decided to ask Nicky for more money.”
Over 300 guests were invited to the wedding banquet, which included Wallace Huo (霍建華), Tong Dawei (佟大為), Zhang Xiaoyan (張小燕), and Matilda Tao (陶晶瑩). Although Fala Chen (陳法拉) was invited, she could not attend due to other commitments. Fala said to Cecilia, “I hope you’re a joyful bride! When you have a baby, I’ll be the godmother!”
Many cast members from Bu Bu Jing Xin were present, and Annie Liu (劉心悠) was the Maid of Honor. Justin Yuan, Ye Zuxin (葉祖新), Damian Lau (劉松仁), Cristy Guo (郭曉婷), and Ye Qing (葉青) also attended. Kenny Lin‘s (林更新) absence sparked rumors that he did not get along with the couple, but Kenny later sent congratulations only. Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎) was noticeably absent.
Although Cecilia was previously close with Yang Mi (楊冪), the friends have drifted apart in recent years. Cecilia was absent at Yang Mi and Hawick Lau‘s (劉愷威) wedding last year, so it was not surprising that Yang Mi did not attend Cecilia’s wedding yesterday either. Nevertheless, Yang Mi offered her congratulations online by writing on her Weibo blog, “My dear little mei mei: blessings, joy, and happiness.”
