After a six-year courtship, long-time celebrity couple Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung finally tied the knot officially yesterday in front of 200 loved ones at Seoul’s Sheraton Walker Hill Hotel!

The couple first met each other on the set of TV series Save the Last Dance for Me in 2004, and as with most other celebrity relationships, have experienced their fair share of difficult times. Ji Sung said that there were times when he had been upset as he was unable to dispel break up rumours in the media. Mutual trust and communication played a big role in helping the couple get to their happy ending.

Ji Sung said, “We believed in each other. We understood that we would sometimes be too busy with our personal schedules to pay attention to each other and we were sorry about that.”

Wedding Theme

The couple drew inspiration from the classic Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), and decorated the wedding venue with elegant touches of pristine white and smart architecture features to give it an European vibe. Apart from the decorations, the couple also meticulously applied the theme to the wedding invites. Instead of flashy invites with their photographs on it, Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung produced a simple and meaningful invite — underneath the image of a tree, the couple had the following message:

“On the day our meeting came as a heart flutter, Ji Sung promised to become a strong and large tree for Bo Young. Just like the little prince who takes great care of his star, I will take great care of my star. We are inviting you to Bo Young & Ji Sung’s star. Please congratulate us so that we can continue making our star beautiful.” Collective aww now please!

Wedding Dress

Unlike many celebrity couples, Lee Bo Young declined the invitations of many big-name designers, and opted to have her gown designed by long-time designer friend, Ji Choon Hee. The couple was reportedly extremely hands-on during the process, as Ji Sung had revealed that he personally chose the wedding gown. The result was a modest but elegant wedding gown that is generously embellished with silver and crystals. The classy creation also effortlessly tied in with the overall wedding theme. Here’s a piece of advice for brides-to-be: if you’re conscious about your arms, why not consider sleeved gowns like Lee Bo Young’s? With the sleeves done in light fabrics such as lace or chiffon, there is no worry of weighing down the look, or looking too bundled up to be pretty!

Wedding Photoshoot

The couple took their wedding photographs in Madrid, Spain. Of the pictures that were disclosed to the public, (the pictures were published in an editorial in Grazia magazine), we can see the couple in two distinct looks — first, a timeless white wedding dress look, and second, a throwback to the classic Hollywood glamour look (think Audrey Hepburn and a Chanel little black dress.)
