Have you always dreamed of having a wedding like Hong Kong celebs Sammi Cheng and Andy Hui?

From exquisite ocean-side chapels to luxurious villas – you name it, you have it. Who says you can’t have your groom arrive on a white horse and sweep you off your feet as you exchange vows in an exotic island in the middle of nowhere?

You can walk down the aisle in all that glitz and glamour. It’s once in a lifetime.

Here’s what some famous celebs did when they tied the knot. And here’s how you can do too – marry in (celebrity) style.

1. Exchange vows in a glass chapel atop a cliff

That’s what Hong Kong diva Sammi Cheng did when she married her actor boyfriend of 22 years, Andy Hui.

The couple had a private wedding at the secluded Wiwaha Chapel, which can seat up to 40 guests, and is situated on a 40-metre cliff top – with a breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean.

Who says you can’t say “I do” just like in a fairytale?

5. Hold an intimate family gathering

Who says you can’t have a grand ceremony and a cosy family gathering at the same time? In Asia, weddings are often seen as a union of two families.

That’s what Chinese actress Yang Mi and her Hong Kong actor beau Hawick Lau believed in when they wedded at the elegant luxury resort Bulgari, and walked down the aisle carpeted with white blossoms to the cheers and tears of their loved ones. It was an intimate family affair.

If you prefer a more down-to-earth and private wedding, and simply want to share the joy with your loved ones on your big day, many Balinese villas can create that very setting.

So no unnecessary stress of having an exotic ceremony. All you need to remember is to walk down the aisle and say “I do”.
