After dating for eight years, 47-year-old Hong Kong singer William So finally tied the knot with 38-year-old girlfriend Anita Fung on Dec 2.
Since William has a wide circle of friends in the entertainment industry, over 100 celebrities attended the wedding celebration.
Eason Chan and Hilary Tsui Were Matchmakers
Eason Chan and his wife Hilary Tsui were the couple's witnesses at the marriage ceremony.
Feeling blessed to have such wonderful friends, William reminisced,
"I want to thank Eason and Hilary - without them, everyone would not be able to gather here today. We [Anita and I] met at their wedding and it's very touching to see them as our witnesses."
William: "I'm a Slave to My Wife!"
During the bridal games in the morning, William proudly shouted, "I'm a slave to my wife!" and admitted that his wife has full control over his financial assets.
Pulling lyrics from his love songs, William promised, "I'll only let my wife cry tears of happiness!"
William explained that the couple got along very well during their eight-year relationship.
"We rarely argue and will discuss many issues together. Since we're able to see our love come to fruition today, we'll mutually respect each other in the future."
Wedding Turns into Mini Concert
Grasshopper, Wilfred Lau, as well as Big Four friends Andy Hui, Dicky Cheung, and Edmond Leung acted as William's groomsmen.
Artistes who came to congratulate William included Jacky Cheung, Sandra Ng, Chilam Cheung, Kay Tse, Richie Ren, Lawrence Ng, Flora Chan , Eric Tsang, Terence Chui, Joey Yung, Alex Fong, Stephy Tang, Ray Lui, Alex To, Steve Wong, Bobby Au Yeung, Miriam Yeung, Real Ting, and Nicholas Tse.
Since the majority of his friends are Hong Kong singers, William especially set up a stage and allowed his friends to sing their way through the wedding. At the height of the ceremony, Dicky Cheung, Eason Chan, and Alex To grabbed their guitars to form an impromptu band and toasted the newlyweds with love ballads.
With over dozens of singers who graced the stage with their voices as a congratulatory present, William's wedding ceremony was more entertaining than a real live concert.
During the bouquet toss, Joey Yung tried to avoid catching the flowers. However, the other single ladies dodged away and Joey ended up with the bouquet in her hands.
She joked, "Including this time, I have already caught the bouquet countless times. Would it have an opposite effect?"
William assured her, "My wife has been a bridesmaid many times and she can still get married!"
