Jay Chou (周杰倫) and Hannah Quinlivan (昆凌) held their wedding ceremony in England yesterday. The reception took place on the lavish grounds of Castle Howard, with 50 family and friends in attendance.
The couple shared wedding photos that they took in Europe in October, and announced that they had already registered their marriage secretly at the end of last year.
Although the wedding date was previously announced to be January 18, the ceremony actually took place one day earlier. Sharing her happiness on Instagram, Hannah wrote, “Thank you for everyone’s blessings. The ceremony was a day before and it’s finally completed!”
Fairy Tale Wedding
Wanting Hannah to experience a romantic wedding, Jay rented 300-year-old palace, Castle Howard, in England. The wedding is estimated to cost more than $2.5 million HKD.
Hiring a professional photography crew, Jay and Hannah toured Europe to take their wedding photos in October. Besides England, the pair flew to Germany, Czech Republic, and France to capture the scenic local backdrop for their photos. Appearing in beautiful gowns and outfits, Jay and Hannah posed as if they were a couple in a fairy tale wedding.
Although Jay and Hannah’s relationship was initially put in a negative light due to their large age gap, the two proved the strength of their relationship after four years of dating. Although raised in a single parent family, Jay hopes to also experience fatherhood soon. Jay said, “My greatest dream is to have a happy family.”
The couple will follow up with a wedding banquet in Taiwan in February or March, primarily to include relatives and friends who could attend yesterday’s ceremony in England.
