Fala Chen (陳法拉) made her big wedding announcement today! On May 18, the 37-year-old actress and entrepreneur Emmanuel Straschnov held their wedding ceremony in Paris, which was attended by approximately 100 guests. Emmanuel spoke in fluent Mandarin promising to take care of Fala for the rest of his life. Adding to the romantic atmosphere, Fala’s friends sang songs and recited William Shakespeare’s poems.
Born in France, Emmanuel is a Harvard Business School graduate and founded his own technology startup. Three years ago, the couple met and fell in love while Fala was pursuing her master’s degree in acting at The Julliard School in New York.
Designing a pale pink diamond ring for Fala, Emmanuel hopes their love and happiness will be forever. On her wedding day, Fala wore a simple bridal dress designed by Le Spose di Gio and later changed into into a silver dress by Giorgio Armani Privé in the evening reception.
Grateful that their friends from all over the world were able to attend the wedding, Fala wrote on social media today, “Thank you everyone for attending my wedding on May 18, creating special memories for us. I’m lucky to have you in our lives, and especially grateful to have my parents’ and Emmanuel’s love.”
Ex-husband Sends Well Wishes
Interestingly, the Hong Kong media had leaked the wedding news before the actress was ready to officially announce it. The media had initially reported the wedding to be held on May 11, but the event took place on May 18 instead. Denying the reports at the time, Fala promised to share if there is good news. True to her word, today Fala finally announced she got married this past Saturday.
Fala’s ex-husband, Neway Entertainment heir Daniel Sit (薛世恒) sent his congratulations. Although he knew Fala had plans to get married again, Daniel wasn’t sure of the actual wedding date. He said to the press, “Congratulations to her! I hope she finds happiness.”
