Following their lavish fairy-tale wedding in England last month, Jay Chou (周杰倫) and Hannah Quinlivan (昆凌) held a second wedding banquet on February 9, this time in Taiwan. The banquet’s special guest was Jay’s elderly grandmother, who was unable to attend the first ceremony due to the long-distance flight.
The wedding banquet, which was held by the outdoor pool at the Taipei W Hotel 10, was attended by 150 friends and family members, including TV hostess Chang Hsiaoyen (張小燕), actor Eric Tsang (曾志偉), singer Jody Chiang (江蕙), TV host Chang Fei (張菲), and singer Fei Yu-ching (費玉清). Jay also toted around his and Hannah’s beloved pet dog, named Maji.
Notably absent at the banquet was entertainer Jacky Wu (吳宗憲), who is often credited with discovering Jay’s talent and launching his career. However, he was not invited to the event, though he did express his congratulations toward Jay on a variety show appearance.
Despite the more elderly audience, Jay decorated the banquet to have a circus theme, complete with a ticket booth entrance and a carousel on the stage. Because of the cold weather, he also set up tents and space heaters for the guests. The atmosphere was so exciting that Jay’s grandmother, who was originally meant to sit inside, asked to sit outside with everyone else so she could feel more like a participant.
The décor was arranged by Jay and the same artistic team that he uses for his music videos. Entertainment for the evening included an 11-member choir, a jazz band accompaniment, and a breath-taking 15-minute-long magic show, during which the magician floated a paper rose bouquet into the air and then turned it into a bunch of genuine roses for Hannah.
Previously, Jay stated that he did not want any monetary gifts from his guests at this banquet, leading to much praise and thanks from the attendees.
