China’s 33-year-old Olympic “Diving Queen” Guo Jingjing (郭晶晶) and 31-year-old Kenneth Fok
(霍啟剛 ), grandson of the late Hong Kong tycoon Henry Fok (霍英東), tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Fok’s residence in Hong Kong yesterday. The wedding celebration was rumored to cost upwards of $300 million Hong Kong dollars. However, for Kenneth, it was a priceless moment to finally walk down the aisle with his girlfriend of 8 years.
The preparations for the festivities started the evening prior with the crew decorating the residence and preparing the food. On the morning of the ceremony, Jingjing arrived at the residence along with her parents and her bridesmaids, all dressed in off-shoulder light orange gowns. Around 10 AM, Kenneth’s parents arrived and shortly after, other family members, relatives and guests promptly arrived in time for the noon ceremony.
With approximately 100 guests in attendance, the ceremony began with the flower girls walking down the aisle followed by the 4 bridesmaids. Jingjing, looking classy in a gorgeous low-cut wedding gown and a long veil, linked arms with her father to walk down the aisle along with a big smile on her face.
The 45-minute ceremony was officiated by Basic Law Committee former deputy director Elsie Leung (梁愛詩). When Elsie asked the couple to say their vows, Jingjing was emotional and fought back tears of happiness while Fok’s smile beamed proudly. When they were finally pronounced as husband and wife, the newlyweds kissed passionately for 30 seconds, which was the highlight of the romantic and sweet ceremony.
Guests feasted on a buffet lunch and had plenty of opportunities to take photos and send their well wishes to the newlyweds.
While the couple declined media interviews, they released a few photos from the joyous occasion to the public. Through the photos, their joy and love for one another was undeniable.
