The photogenic couple first met on the set of Chinese drama “Dreams Come True” two years ago. Despite just dating for a year, Ken Chu popped the question to the love of his life on her birthday in April with a three-carat heart-shaped diamond ring in front of friends and family. The couple has also since shared the touching proposal story, which also included a serenade by Ken Chu and heartfelt words of thanks, which brought tears to the couple’s eyes.

While the couple put up an entertaining show for their guests, performing duets and dances during the wedding, the highlight of the ceremony was no doubt the attendance of Ken Chu’s Meteor Garden ” F4 brothers” Vanness Wu and Jerry Yan. While Jerry Yan had earlier hinted that he might not be able to attend the wedding due to work commitments, this turned out to be his big surprise for Ken Chu, when he turned up. With Ken Chu’s marriage, Jerry Yan is also officially the last bachelor standing in F4.

As love will find its way, TVB’s leading lady and prima donna Tavia Yeung, 36, has finally gotten married after 4 years of dating fellow Hong Kong actor Him Law, 31. The couple held a secret wedding in England’s Leeds Castle on March 22 – the day they registered their marriage.

Yeung and Law became a pair in 2011, after they starred in the medical drama Hippocratic Crush together. Their relationship was not a smooth-sailing one, as Yeung was 5 years older than Law and she had a higher status in the entertainment industry than Law. The two, however overcame all odds and are now finally seeing their relationship bear fruit.
