The longtime couple, who have known each other for over twenty years, held a small wedding in Prague, where Stephen was directing his new movie, The Adventurers <俠盜聯盟>.
According to Jayne Stars, Stephen and Shu Qi’s announcement read, “We’ve known each other for twenty years [and have been] together for four. I married her unreservedly. It’s true. We’ve decided to cling to each other forever. We are married. We are thankful to you who love us. We can be wrong about many things, but we cannot be wrong about loving him and her.” They added, “We are not at the moment pregnant.”
The couple dropped a few photos from their small wedding, which was only attended by twenty people. Even Stephen’s costars inThe Adventurers were unaware about their secret wedding.
In regards to their humble wedding, Shu Qi described, “The wedding dress is a gift from H&M two years ago. The veil was something I randomly chose at a bridal shop. His suit and my pink dress was purchased at a small shop in the streets two days before the photo was taken. Our photographer received his notice only one week before and willingly postponed other jobs to come to Prague for us! We specified we wanted natural light so there were no light reflectors used. Haha!”
Celebrity pal Michelle Chen, who got married not long ago as well, congratulated the couple on Facebook and wrote, "My goddess! So much happiness! Congrats!"
