How Donnie Yen and wife celebrated a decade of marriage

30 August 2013 / 3 years 1 month ago

Donnie Yen (甄子丹) and Cecilia Wang (汪詩詩) are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary with a couple’s trip to Thailand and a beautiful wedding pictorial.

Donnie met Cecilia, a former model and winner of Miss Chinese Toronto, in 2003. After a short three-month courtship, the couple married in August of the same year. Soon after, Cecilia gave birth to their first child Jasmine and in 2007, a son named James.

A romantic man, Donnie volunteered to get a tattoo after James was born, etching Cecilia’s name permanently onto his waist. He also entrusts everything to his wife. At home, Cecilia runs a tight ship, giving Donnie only a few thousand dollars as his monthly allowance.

Despite their 18-year age gap, Donnie and Cecilia share the same ideals and complement each other perfectly. To say thanks to Cecilia and to celebrate their love, Donnie planned a romantic getaway to Thailand. They also shot a wedding pictorial for Chinese wedding magazine Darizi, to commemorate their 10-year journey.

On August 27, Donnie’s fan club posted several photos from the shoot on Weibo. Cecilia showed off her modeling skills as she posed fashionably in beautiful white and pink wedding gowns, looking radiant as she smiled for the camera.

Donnie emitted masculine sophistication in tailored formal wear, dropping his action star image for a just a moment to be the loving husband worthy of his wife. The two seemed happy during the shoot, laughing and smiling as they posed with various musical instruments.

In a more subtle arrangement, Donnie and Cecilia sat on a simple white couch, his arm around her shoulders. Cecilia leaned her head slightly on her husband while Donnie stared at her with affection and appreciation, symbolizing the unconditional love and support that they share and cherish.

Donnie shared his thoughts on marriage on Weibo. He wrote, “True love is the ability to appreciate each other, to forgive each other, and to understand each other. At the same time, both must share the same dreams and directions. Only then will love be everlasting.”
