Celebrity Weddings: Sherming Yiu and Alan Wu

By on April 27, 2012 in Celebrity Weddings, NEWS


Former TVB actress, Sherming Yiu (姚樂怡), and Alan Wu (吳俊匡) held their wedding celebration on April 26, 2012. The lively 30-table banquet took place at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Hong Kong. The bride wore $5 million HKD in sparkling jewelry, including a 1.5 carat diamond ring. The groom was a good sport, enduring the torturous games devised by the bridesmaids, proving that Sherming was not an easy woman to win her hand in marriage!

Best known for her role in TVB drama, Armed Reaction < 陀槍師姐>, Sherming has since retired from acting and currently worked in the wedding planning sector. Raised in the Netherlands, Alan worked outside the entertainment industry as well. The couple has been dating for 8 years.

Groom Endures Pain For Bride

The bridesmaids consisted of Angela Tong (湯盈盈), Toby Leung (梁靖琪), Janet Chow (周家蔚), Margaret Chung (鍾麗淇), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Pinky Cheung (張文慈), and Emily Kwan (關寶慧). Sherming and the bridesmaids traveled to Taiwan earlier for a girls’ getaway trip prior to the wedding.


During the morning bridal games, Angela led the bridesmaids in torturing the groom mercilessly. When it was discovered that Alan’s legs were quite hairless, he was forced to take off his shirt. Angela mercilessly stuck a hair removal pad on Alan’s armpit, saying mischievously, “I know Sherming is afraid of underarm hair, so I am cleaning him up for tonight!” Alan’s groomsmen were forced to remove the hair on their chest! Toby Leung revealed that the bride actually came up with the idea for the game!

The groom was also asked to “French kiss” a photo of Eric Tsang (曾志偉), in which Alan had to place his tongue on Eric’s tongue! Regarding Sherming as one of his daughters, Eric was especially jovial last night. He vowed that he will not leave the wedding banquet without getting drunk!

Alan revealed the additional tortures the bridesmaids had devised for him, “It was very difficult! I had to down a mixed drink which contained sweet, sour, bitter, and spicy flavors. The drink had wasabi, wine, and banana in it as well!” Sherming did not feel pity for her husband, enjoying the good humor of the bridal games. Sherming said, “It’s okay! He will know how to cherish me; it is not that easy to win my hand in marriage!”  

Sherming said that the groom made a love declaration that he will give all his money to her. “He will only allow himself $20 to spend everyday. Alan also promised to run in the opposite direction when he sees other beautiful women,” Sherming said. However, Alan laughed and said, “I don’t think I said that! I only said that I love Sherming!”

Since Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) was working and unable to attend the wedding, Angela Tong was let “loose” and played uninhibitedly. Angela was unafraid that revenge will be enacted at her own future wedding. Asked whether she was afraid that Alan will be further tortured at the wedding banquet, Sherming said that the tactic would be to get Angela drunk as soon as possible!  

Celebrity guests that attended the wedding wedding included Alex Fong (方中信), Annie Man (文頌嫻), Timmy Hung (洪天明), Cutie Mui (梅小惠), and Evergreen Mak (麥長青).

Sherming and Alan indicated that they were ready to have children at any time. While speaking with reporters, Sherming often touched her stomach. Asked whether she was currently pregnant, she said, “I want to be like Annie Man too! I can have a child at any time and wish to do so. When I become pregnant, I will probably announce it before 3 months time since I will be unable to contain my happiness!”

The couple will hold an additional 100-table wedding banquet on April 29th in the Walled Village of Hong Kong, which was Alan’s family’s hometown. Afterward, the couple will fly to Las Vegas, USA to obtain their marriage certificate and enjoy their honeymoon there.

    Congrats! I noticed that it’s always the same girls in the bridal party-Janet chow, Toby Leung, Angela Tong, etc. They must be a big, close group of friends and just happened to be getting married one after another! I guess Janet made a lot of new friends in HK after dating Timmy!

        Yea, and I thought that you weren’t supposed to be a bridesmaid if you are already married? I guess that is just the traditional way of thinking. I can’t wait until Angela and Chin ka Lok’s wedding…

    In a recent interview, Charmaine Sheh mentioned that she is good friends with Timmy Hung.I was surprised that she did not attend the wedding nor was a bridesmaid as the same group of girls were bridemaids in the last few weddings.

      She has a public event in Mainland China that she has committed to, whereas for Annie and Sherming wedding she can apply leave from filming crew. If you follow Janet & Charmaine weibo, they agreed to have a meal later to make up for it.

        maybe janet chow isn’t as close to charmaine as the other girls are? so charmaine can’t be bothered to take leave?

      • sehseh replied:

        How can you take leave when it’s an one day event, booked by organizers, with ads publicizing your appearance? Mind you, these kind of schedules are not made last minute, but several months ahead, some even a year.

        It’s different from taking leave from filming because directors can reschedule your filming time slot.

        Anyway, since you dislike Charmaine so much, the above doesn’t matter to you anyway. So yeah, whatever you think it is.

    The bridesmaids Chinese dress is horrible, gives them no figures unless Janet Chow is already up the duff and is looking a little chubby.
