After registering for marriage in August, Malaysian singer-songwriter Penny Tai tied the knot with her Taiwanese boyfriend Sidney Lu Saturday (Dec 27) in Taipei. According to media reports, the songbird will be throwing another banquet in her hometown next year.

The wedding: Held at Taipei’s Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, the wedding was originally meant to be an outdoor event until an unexpected downpour occurred. The couple and their 300 guests adjourned indoors.

According to reports, it was a modern wedding with a band entertaining and guests seated at rows of tables.

The dress: The quirky songbird wore an Ersa Atalier lacey wedding gown followed by a Yolan Cris pant suit. When asked about her wedding gowns at a meet-the-press session prior to the banquet, Penny quipped that she had opted to include long sleeves as well as a turtle neck into the designs of her gowns, because she was afraid of the cold.

The songbird, who won ‘Best Female Singer’ at the most recent Golden Melody Award, was also unconventional when it came to wedding photos. A devout Buddhist, Penny traveled to the Boudhanath Stupa in Nepal for the photoshoot. In the photos, the 36-year-old struck poses in a beautiful ethnic-styled black dress designed by New York-based designer Mara Hoffmans.


The guests: Fellow Malaysians, singer Fish Leong, Gary Cao and actress Angelica Lee were among the attendees.
