Vanness Wu (吳建豪) and his new wife Arissa Cheo (石貞善) celebrated their marriage once again with a star-studded banquet held in Singapore on January 4.
Meeting on the set of his music video in 2006, Vanness and Singaporean heiress Arissa went through an on-and-off relationship fraught with negative rumors. Although they have given up on their relationship at one point, the couple eventually reconciled and became engaged in 2012.
They finally registered for marriage on August 9 last year and made an official announcement to fans on August 13.
Born and raised in the United States, Vanness held his wedding ceremony on November 16, at the five-star The Resort at Pelican Hill in Los Angeles. The lavish event reportedly cost $1 million HKD, some of which covered airfare and accommodations for their family and friends.
Although his former F4 buddies were not invited to the ceremony, good friend Elva Hsiao (蕭亞軒) made an appearance as a celebrity guest and together with Vanness, serenaded attendees with a touching duet.
While they chose a low-key approach for their American wedding, Vanness and Arissa hosted a truly star-studded party in Singapore this weekend. Jerry Yan (言承旭) made up for his absence this time around, and close friends Jaycee Chan (房祖名), Andy On (安志杰), and Philip Ng (伍允龍) also showed up to give their blessings.
Leehom Wang (王力宏), who was in town for a New Year’s Day performance earlier, took the opportunity to celebrate with Vanness along with wife Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾), reports a Jayne Stars article.
Aside from his surprise appearance, Leehom also gifted the newlyweds with a performance of his classic hit The One and Only <唯一>. He continued to send his blessings to the happy couple on Weibo after the event, urging them to make plans for children in the near future.
