It was a touching union full of surprises and happy tears at Hong Kong-based Taiwanese actress Charlie Young's wedding at W Hotel Singapore last Saturday.
Hong Kong singer-actress Gigi Leung, who hosted the four-hour event with Malaysian actress Angelica Lee, had put together a surprise video for the bride and aired it during the wedding dinner.
The video showed photo montages of Young, Leung, Lee and Taiwanese singer Valen Hsu, who was Young's bridesmaid.
The four are close friends in the showbiz circle, with Leung and Lee playing the roles of Young's jie meis (Mandarin for sisters) as well.
Speaking to the media after the wedding had ended, at close to 1am, a beaming Leung, 37, said in Cantonese: "Charlie didn't know we had a video for her and all of us cried when it was aired. It was a very touching moment.
"I put together our photos, the oldest dating back to 1993.
"Looking at them, I realised how long we've known one another. It brought back good memories."
Leung's video was not the only one shown at the wedding dinner in the white-and-gold ballroom with 34 tables.
Young, 39, dedicated a video to her Singaporean husband, Mr Khoo Shao Tze, a 43-year-old secretary to the Indonesian Tourism minister.
The video featured loving pictures of the couple, who had dated for almost 20 years, on annual holidays.
Young also paid tribute to her parents and in-laws, saying: "Thank you for being understanding towards the fact that I am a celebrity and that sometimes attract public attention.
"I am very touched and had cried several times today."
