After four years of dating, Jay Chou (周杰倫) finally tied the knot with Hannah Quinlivan (昆凌) on January 17, one day before Jay’s 36th birthday. Their romantic fairy tale wedding took place at the Selby Abbey, an Anglican church in the small town of Selby, North Yorkshire, England.
The beautiful wedding ceremony, which was performed by a Taiwanese pastor, was attended by 50 close family and friends. A 20-member string orchestra played the wedding march, which was a piece composed by Jay himself. Hannah was led down the aisle by her Australian father, who then gave her to the hands to Jay. The couple were moved to tears while reciting their vows in both English and Mandarin. When Jay and Hannah exchanged rings, their families cried with them.
During the bride’s bouquet toss, Jay also tossed his own bouquet, hoping that both their friends would get a chance to catch some of the newlywed’s fortune. The wedding was followed by a party held at Castle Howard.
Complementing the royal English theme of the wedding, Hannah wore a long, Tudor-inspired bridal gown with a heart-shaped cutout at the back. The dress was custom-made by Taiwanese boutique, Sophia Weddings. Hannah’s statement bridal necklace, which made from platinum, cost over 6.3 million RMB. Her bridal crown, also made from platinum, cost over 7.8 million RMB. Both pieces were sponsored by Chaumet, a high-end jewelry brand from Paris.
Though the ceremony started later than scheduled due to delay in rehearsals, Jay said the wedding ended perfectly and he could not be any happier.
His manager said, “Jay was very satisfied with the orchestra. The atmosphere of this wedding was super romantic!”
