Mr Tan, 41, told Shin Min that they started preparing for the wedding a year ago.

Using a Chinese idiom with two ones in it, he said he chose 11 cars to show that they are together for "one lifetime".

"I wanted to have a big bash and to give my wife an unforgettable wedding. I was very nervous today, I slept only two to three hours," he said.

As the 31-year-old bride loves Hello Kitty, the pair hired two Hello Kitty mascots, donned Hello Kitty lapel pins and gave out Hello Kitty red packets.
