Despite the rollercoaster year with a number of celebrity unions like Shu Qi and Stephen Fung’s hush-hush marriage, Cecilia Liu and Nicky Wu’s pastel wedding in Bali, Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo’s romantic double celebration in Bali and Taiwan, Agyness Deyn’s boho ceremony, Tavia Yeung’s star-studded Hong Kong banquet, Eva Longoria and Jose Baston’s resort nuptials in Mexico, Michelle Chen and Chen Xiao’s lavish celebrations in Beijing and Taiwan and splits (notably Brad and Angelina’s high-profile divorce, as well as Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts’ and Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney’s separations), these are the celebrations to look forward in the coming year.
1. Yoga Lin and Kiki Ting
After a much-publicised split with former girlfriend G.E.M Tang, Yoga proposed in an equally public fashion – via a long, earnest and sincere facebook post – and followed up with a touching picture of the both of them enveloped in a hug (which was also an indication of Kiki’s answer).
It’s been an Amazing year full of new experiences and breakthroughs. I’m so happy to announce that I’m Engaged! I’m very excited spend the next season of my life with my Beloved. Its been a long journey of 11 years and I hope we can spend the rest of our lives together. Thank you to all my friends and family that was part of our journey! And thank you everyone for your wonderful blessings!
2. Grace Wong
The actress said yes to her first and only boyfriend of 11 years in Nov 2016, and showed off her stunning sparkler – a teardrop diamond – on her Instagram page.
3. Serena Williams
The tennis superstar said “I Do” to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian. While all eyes have been kept peeled for the sparkler in question (the star is said to love her bling), Serena took to Instagram to reveal her engagement ring… which came in the form of a corn tortilla. Well played.
4. Harlem Yu and Jinny Chang
The Taiwanese singer-actor-host quietly registered his marriage to newscaster Jinny Chang in late July 2016. The news only came to light when his Sing! China co-judge Na Ying spilled the beans at a live event shortly after.
5. Jacqueline Wong
Is she or isn’t she? The TVB star posted a photo of a diamond ring on her ring finger on her Instagram in June 2016, which prompted fans to offer their congratulations.
6. Joseph Lau and Kimbie Chan
After announcing his breakup with former beauty contestant Yvonne Lui in the newspapers on Nov 15, 2016, Joseph filed a notice of intended marriage with his girlfriend, former entertainment reporter Kimbie Chan on Nov 18, 2016.
5. Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel
The supermodel said yes to Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel in July 2016, and made the announcement via Instagram with a Bitmoji emoticon (depicting the proposal) and her impressive ring.
6. Philippa (Pippa) Middleton and James Matthews
Touted to be the society wedding of the year, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister said yes to hedge fund manager James Matthews and showed off her gorgeous diamond-studded vintage-style ring.
7. Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Jason Statham
The couple announced their engagement on the Golden Globes carpet in January 2016. The couple have been in a relationship for about five years before they took things to the next level.
8. Brie Larson and Alex Greenwald
The Oscar Best Actress winner revealed her engagement when she was spotted wearing her ring during the set of the Saturday Night Live show in May 2016. Alex was said to have popped the question during the couple’s trip to Tokyo in March 2016.
“My love, No words could begin to describe the feelings and impact you have had on my life over the past 2 and a half years, but I’ll do my best. In august of 2013, I was blessed with the opportunity to meet you, the most incredible woman in the entire world. Since that very day not a moment has passed where you haven’t consumed my entire being with your love, support, and friendship. What we have is special. It’s something I will never take for granted — and although there have been countless times something has tried to get in our way and pull us apart, the only thing that matters is that we never listened. We are here, and each day we become closer, and what we have built together continues to grow stronger. You deserve nothing but the best, and no matter what life brings to us, I promise to give you nothing but my best. I want nothing more than to have you by my side for the rest of my life. Our life. Kirstin Taylor Maldonado, my darling, my treasure. Will you marry me?”Pictures by @paris_photographer
9. Pentatonix’s Kirstin Maldonado and Jeremy Lewis
The Pentatonix singer had the proposal of a lifetime as she said yes in front of the Eiffel Tower to a magnificent ring from Tiffany & Co.
10. Gareth Bale and Emma Rhys-Jones
The Real Madrid football star proposed during his 27th birthday party to his longtime girlfriend and baby mama in July 2016.
The Twilight star became an engaged woman on Dec 19, 2016, while she was on holiday with boyfriend and Australian TV personality and voice talent Paul Khoury, in Australia and New Zealand. She then made the announcement shortly after via Instagram, flipping fans and her fiance, Paul Khoury off with her ring finger.
