Celebrity Weddings: Myolie Wu and Philip Lee

Thirty-six-year-old Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and 40-year-old Philip Lee (李乘德) got married on December 28. Dating for a year, the couple announced their engagement in November. After a traditional Chinese tea ceremony in the morning, the couple celebrated their union at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

Philip’s group of best men was made up of mostly his close friends from outside the entertainment industry. They were greeted by Myolie’s 11 bridesmaids, who were mainly friends from within the industry. The bridesmaids included Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), Paisley Wu (胡蓓蔚), Sire Ma (馬賽) and Selena Li (李施嬅).

The atmosphere was lively and boisterous, as the bridesmaids presented the groomsmen with challenges and games they had to play before Philip was eventually allowed to meet Myolie. Philip had to make statements declaring his love for her.

Myolie’s traditional Chinese dress was adorned with phoenix embroidery in gold and silver thread. The outfit reportedly took an artisan 12 months to complete, and is worth $25,800 USD. The couple then drove to the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where their wedding banquet was to be held, and where a suite was prepared for the tea ceremony to be conducted with Philip’s family.

A white canopy was set up on a grassy meadow against a bright blue sky, and a cocktail reception was held. There were approximately 200 guests, with many of Myolie’s friends, including Crystal Li (李雪瑩) and Skye Chan (陳倩揚), in attendance.

The couple exchanged wedding vows in English, with Myolie choking back tears in the middle of saying her vows. All the guests were visibly moved, and some of Myolie’s bridesmaids even started tearing. The couple then signed the wedding papers and exchanged rings, and completed the ceremony with a heartfelt kiss.

Will Have Children Later

Myolie and Philip proceeded to the Ritz Carlton for their wedding banquet in the evening. Speaking with the press before the start of the banquet, Myolie said that they will enjoy their marriage first before having children. “It’s important to get adjusted to each other, as we were very carefree before. But now we have to respect each other. And it’s necessary to discuss and plan it together. But I I feel extremely happy and fortunate.”

After the wedding, Myolie will take a two-month vacation to enjoy her new marriage. Asked about the total cost of their wedding, Myolie said, “We haven’t calculated the expenses yet. My husband works hard for his money and he said that the wedding was a big expense. Everyone waited a long time for him to get married; I believe the elders will also be more generous in their gifts.”

Myolie Feels Fortunate to Have Philip in Her Life

At the banquet, Philip praised Myolie in a speech prepared in English. He had promised Myolie’s father that he will take care of her for the rest of his life. Myolie felt very blessed to have met Philip. The couple had prepared individual video clips in which they exposed each other’s habits. Philip said that Myolie “often leaves crumbs everywhere when she eats,” while Myolie said that Philip likes cleanliness and will wash dishes even before she is done cooking.

Bridesmaids Sing Song

Bridesmaids Nancy Wu, Paisley Wu, Elaine Yu, Mandy Wong and Selena Li surprised Myolie with by singing a song at the banquet. Delighted by her good friends’ performance, Myolie joined them on stage and danced together.

After the banquet ended, Myolie and Philip held an after party in Lan Kwai Fong at 2 a.m. The bridal party, along with Niki Chow, were spotted joining the newlyweds. Changing into a red dress and wearing a mini tiara, Myolie said, “We won’t party all night. I’m getting old!” The newlyweds celebrated until 4 a.m. before departing from the venue.

  1. Sound like a fun wedding! They look great. Wedding doesn’t seem too extravagant or over the top like some celebrity wedding, so I like that. Wishing them happiness for sure!

      1. @isay Yes totally missed that. Gotta say… doesn’t look like a HK 10Mil. wedding at all. But then it is at the Ritz…I’m just glad it’s not a damn fairy tale/princess theme!

  2. Looks like every bride likes the KATE MIDDLETON inspired wedding dress except hers is mermaid like on the bottom.

    1. @kiki when i first saw her wedding gown, it sure reminded me of Kate’s gown…but Myolie’s dress is a mermaid waist down. the lace is beautiful…but i prefer her Chinese kwa more.
      fortunately there is no fairy tale theme though.

  3. I find Myolie’s dress kinda plain, esp in comparison to her other photo’d dresses. But it’s elegant and maybe she was going for simple.

    1. @freedalas I am surprised that she invited Ray Lui. I don’t recall Myolie Wu and Ray Lui had ever collaborated together on any TV series before. I wonder how they know each other.

  5. How does Selena feel about it? I’ve always been wondering what she really thinks. If Phillip was a bad guy, aren’t she supposed to feel bad for her bff? And if he was a good guy, doesn’t she feel jealous inside? Either way, it feels very awkward. How in the world did they become best friends? Or keep their friendship genuine when one dated and married one’s ex? I don’t really believe in their friendship. Most of all can’t trust Selena.

    1. @kaykay408 lol I’m thinking same as you. Somehow all these good friends circle don’t sound genuine to me. I mean these are all yr competitors in a dog eat dog industry. How genuine can anyone be under such circumstances?

    2. @kaykay408

      WAAAAA, had no clue he dated Selina as well? Lord!! haha LOL…Wow, well for asians probably hardly happens, we usually stayed away from anyone’s exes? For Americans, it’s all fair game hahaa…LOL…Think Shania Twain, hubby cheated w/best friend, she ended up marrying her ex. Totally weird but it happens all the time for Americans I guess. Selina isn’t bad looking either but dated this one above as well? aaaawwwww,

    3. @kaykay408 if Selena Lee is the ex-gf, how would she feel if she is not the bride? Strange right? Don’t like Selena…find her rather vain.

      Myolie is already in her mid 30s. Wait any longer and she will really be in the high risk age to have a baby.
