The 32-year-old TVB actress Eliza Sam (岑麗香) wedded her boyfriend of nearly two years, Joshua, in a lovely ceremony held in Vancouver, Eliza’s hometown in Canada. 

The bride and groom, both Chinese Canadians, started off the day with a traditional Chinese wedding tea ceremony, followed by a Christian ceremony in the Ebenezer Baptist Church reports Jayne Stars.

On Saturday (Dec 17, 2016) morning, Joshua and his groomsmen arrived earlier to knock on Eliza’s hotel door, to play wedding door games. See also: fun and harmless gatecrashing game ideas.

In order to attain her hand in marriage, Joshua and his groomsmen were tested by Eliza’s bridesmaids, which included Linda Chung (鐘嘉欣), Leanne Li (李亞男), Christine Kuo (苟芸慧), and more. 

One of the obstacles required Joshua to pick up grapes with his toes.

After the traditional Chinese marriage ceremonies, Eliza and Joshua changed into their Western wedding outfits and greeted the press in front of their church. 

Eliza wore a white shawl over her wedding gown, while Joshua had on a grey black tux. 

The groom was visibly nervous meeting the reporters for the first time, and held onto Eliza’s hand tightly.

Close family and friends were in attendance when Eliza and Joshua exchanged vows. 

Eliza teared when she spotted her parents in the crowd. 

Joshua quickly pulled out a tissue to wipe her tears.

Around 4 p.m, guests arrived at the Fairmont Vancouver Hotel for the couple’s wedding reception.

The venue was renovated into a princess’s retreat, decorated with pink flowers and brown teddy bears. 

Eliza changed into her wedding kua to greet the reporters. 

She hung two golden pigs around her neck and golden bangles around her wrists, as per Chinese wedding custom. 

The newlyweds shared a few kisses and hugs upon the reporters’ requests.

Eliza also thanked the reporters for their blessings. 

She shared that although she’s been too busy to plan for a honeymoon, the couple plan to take short trip after their wedding. 

Joshua, who has been living in Vancouver all this time, also plan to move to Hong Kong for Eliza. 

Smiling in bliss, Eliza said that they no longer have to go through a long-distance relationship. 

Children are on the cards for the pair. 

Asking Joshua what he liked the most about Eliza, he laughed and said: “There’s too much to say!” 

Eliza told Joshua to show off his Cantonese, and then asked him: “Am I good?” 

To which Joshua replied: “Yes! Very good!”

Asking what Joshua liked to call Eliza, he joked: “Still Heung Heung, but at home, I call her Chiu Chiu. Heung Chiu (banana)!”
