Celebrity Weddings: Sammi Cheng and Andy Hui’s Moving Vows in Bali

It was a 22-year long, on-again off-again battle for Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) and Andy Hui (許志安), but the couple reconciled their differences two years ago and decided to become lifetime partners. While a small wedding ceremony was held in Bali, Indonesia in November, the couple will register their marriage in Hong Kong later.

Andy Proposed 7 Times

In a column Sammi wrote for a magazine earlier, she professed that she once had a fear for getting married as she has had many friends who had failed marriages. Andy proposed to Sammi seven times before finally succeeding in persuading her to marry him. He had attempted to propose to Sammi under different settings – on New Year Eve’s party, Christmas parties, Valentine Day’s parties, and reportedly even tried to play it down by asking her casually while the couple were on vacation, but Sammi turned him down in the previous attempts.

Andy tried his luck again this August during Sammi’s birthday party, which was attended by only close family members. Andy said in a brief interview days ago, “I did everything you could think of doing in a proposal!”

An insider said, “Andy lied to [Sammi] and said he had work so he couldn’t go, but he surprised her at the party. He showed up with her birthday cake and a bouquet of flowers. Sammi was very surprised and couldn’t stop smiling. Andy suddenly kneeled with his ring and proposed to her sweetly. The diamond was at least three carats! Sammi was teary and she said yes!”

The couple celebrated their engagement in Bali in November 2013. It was reported that Sammi did not want to beat the drum about the wedding, and Andy only told the news to their families. Andy’s Big Four bandmates – Dicky Cheung (張衛健), William So (蘇永康), and Edmond Leung (梁漢文) sent their blessings to Andy.

“Odd things always happen around Christmas time,” said William So with a laugh. “Honestly though, the whole world has been waiting for Sammi and Andy to get married. Now that Sammi has said yes, Rat [Andy’s nickname] has finally gotten his wish. We have also waited for this to happen for over two decades. We are all so happy for them now that they can be together. I hope they will be together until their old ages, and quickly have a little rat!”

Edmond Leung said, “I really didn’t know about this at all, but I am so happy to hear such great news. I truly congratulate them. I will personally go send them my blessings.”

“It’s so sudden,” said Dicky Cheung. “I seriously never thought Sammi would say yes. So the matchmaking my mother and I did for Andy years ago did not go to waste. The two of them can finally be together.”

According to a source, Andy booked a private beach hotel in Bali and forked out over a million dollars HKD on the flight tickets. The wedding was held at the Nikko Wiwaha Chapel, which could seat up to 40 guests. A popular destination for many weddings, the chapel is made of glass and is situated right next to the beach. At the wedding, Sammi did not wear an extravagant wedding dress, opting for a simple, slim and long white dress with sandals. Only about ten close family and friends attended the wedding.

After reciting their vows, Andy said, “We’ve finally walked to this step. Though there were many turns and crosses in the middle, we still managed to smoothly arrive to our stop. There may be rocks and thorns on our road ahead, but there is no need to be afraid, because I will be here with you. I was in love with the imperfect you of the past, and I still love the considerate you now. I will continue to love you just as much as I do now in the future!”

In tears, Sammi said, “I am very thankful to God for having me to meet him. He has protected me all these years. I used to be afraid of getting married and having kids, it was a class I was afraid to take, as I didn’t know how to break through it, but God has allowed me to overcome it step by step. Because of him, I have believed in marriage.” Sammi then made a promise that she will have kids, saying, “Please don’t give me pressure! I will take it step by step!” Andy burst into tears and laughter at Sammi’s words.

It is reported that Sammi and Andy will be registering their marriage in Hong Kong sometime next year, and hold another engagement party for their friends and family in Hong Kong.

      Actually, I think she’s not good enough for most men…..an old has-been that’s past her prime and a typical HK leftover chick.

        Why r u saying that? Andy can never be as famous as Sammi and make as much money as her, that’s y ppl think he’s not good enough for her, beside I personally think Sammi is pretty and Andy yet RAT. He smart enough to dump his previous gf to reconcile w Sammi, u ur whole life can never be compare w her, calling her leftover chick? Bet u r one of them if u r an old woman, jealous. Anyway, wish both of them the best.

      Why is Andy not good enough for her?i think they are both great for each other. But I hate it when some men and women think they are too good for their partner. If anyone has that kind of thinking, then why are you with them in the first place?

    • irene replied:

      7 times is certainly a lot!

      Very touching indeed.

      But I am curious about something.

      If a woman reject a man, does he propose with a different ring or a same ring each time?

        Maybe it depends on how much the ring cost?

    • milktea replied:

      I would think that is a bit extreme and seemingly play hard to get game, what did she try to prove? More fame, more wealth so what? This just cast doubt on her love for Andy. No offence. She may well be with only some western guy like Gigi Leung, which I don’t wish that to happen. Poor Andy.

        Sammi was NOT playing hard to get. She was going through her own personal demons for sometime. She has only overcome the demons in the last few years. Andy is still there for her, she slowly accepted it. End of story.

    Huh I’m confused. So are they already married or not? I think I’ve seen earlier reports saying that the ceremony in Bali was only an engagement ceremony, not a marriage ceremony.

    Nevertheless, I’m happy for them.

    Seven times????? I hope Sammi has a good prenup signed.

    When Andy’s singing career was slowing down, didn’t Andy dated a rich old lady and also appeared in a movie where he was pleasuring himself in the film clip.

    I am so happy for them! Congratulations! Perhaps fairy tales do come true =) May they have the enduring love and patience to work out a beautiful marriage.

    And, btw, Addy, I think the original article mentioned that Andy cried at Sammi’s promise about babies, but he didn’t reportedly laugh. And Sammi’s vows included the line, “As for having kids, please don’t give me pressure. But I promise to get there one step at a time!” =)

    It’s about time!!!! I really like Sammi! She’s great and from reading this article I found that I think the same as Sammi. I’m also afraid of getti g married, having kids, and saying YES. I’ve been proposed casially three times and never said YES. I guess I just don’t know how to. I’m scared!!!! I’m still with my first boyfriend of nine years and I’m his first and only girlfriend too. Or mayB I can’t stand his family.
