Yesterday 38 year old famous model, Kathy Chow, married her 35 year old wealthy French boyfriend Julien Lepeu in France. They had a fairytale wedding held at an ancient castle - Chateau Diter. First, the traditional tea ceremony was held in the afternoon, where the couple knelt down and gave their parents tea. Then Kathy changed into a red evening dress designed by famous designer Barney Cheng to substitute the traditional Qipao. She received at least 10 heavy weighted golden bracelets and two golden necklaces. Julien saw how 'heavy weighted' his wife was and joked: "We're rich! It's such a honor to have married this wife!" When he saw Kathy's big golden pig necklace with 6 little piglets hanging on it, he joked again: "She must have at least 6 children with me!"
During the tea ceremony, Kathy was emotional as she gave tea to her mother, then the mother and daughter embraced. Julien's parents wished the KJ couple, 'have two children in three years' after learning about the Chinese traditional customs. Soon after, the guests all requested the couple to kiss, making it a heartwarming scene. Niki Chow joked her sister's golden accessories were a "profit". Niki Chow was not only her sister's bridesmaid, but was also Kathy's beauty adviser and director as well, helping her sister do all the arrangements for that day.
In the evening, the newly weds held a welcome party, but due to the rainy weather, the location was switched to a restaurant by the sea. It was a White Party, so the dress code for the guests were all white. Kathy appeared dressed like a Greek goddess, she had such a good time and got very high after dinner. Christine Ng and her husband led everyone else on the dance floor, Julien's parents followed and then the newly weds kissed again under the romantic atmosphere.
Kathy's welcome dinner was held at the restaurant called L'Ecrin located in Port Pierre Canto. The tables had beautiful flower arrangements with white and pink colors to accommodate the 'White Party' theme. They also invited two handsome guitarist to sing French love songs while the guests had dinner. It was such a romantic wedding banquet. L'Escrin had a quiet environment and there was a private beach outside for guests to enjoy the ocean view while having dinner and wine. However, this was one expensive wedding, costing nearly HK$15 million.
Good friend Christine Ng accepted a phone interview all the way from France, she said everyone had a blast at the Welcome Dinner, "They were all in white, we took pictures by the sea and had dinner." Also, Christine delivered her 'first time' at the banquet, she prepared a speech to congratulate the couple in French. She said: "I told my brother to translate my speech into French for me and then I was continuously practicing it. In the last two days, I even asked the staff at the hotel to teach me how to pronounce the French words, I think I should get 100%! I'm such a big girl, but this is my first time, I wish them much happiness!"
