Top Taiwanese star Ella Chen and her Malaysian businessman husband, Alvin Lai, held their private wedding reception in Malaysia. Their ivory white-themed wedding banquet was attended by around 800 close family members and friends of Alvin.
The newly-weds observed the full Chinese tradition at their wedding. Their day began in the morning with the groom fetching his bride, who was sheltered under a hand-woven tray held by a woman acting as a chaperon, to his family’s residence in Ujong Pasir for a tea ceremony.
At Alvin’s residence, the couple then served tea to the elders in his family as a sign of respect, starting with his parents.
The parents of Ella, who looked resplendent in white with her face covered by a demure veil, also flew down from Taiwan to witness the ceremony.
“I’m just so happy,” said the blushing bride on Wednesday when she arrived in Malaysia.
“My husband is the best! But I must be careful not to indulge too much in the good food in Malaysia. I will have trouble fitting into my dress.”
The singer/actress, who is one-third of the hugely popular Taiwanese pop band S.H.E., wed Alvin in Taipei on May 5.
Although the couple have been friends for quite some time after meeting through Ella’s bandmate Hebe Tien, their romance only blossomed one-and-a-half years ago.
