Ming Xi & Mario Ho
Just seven weeks after their fairytale engagement involding 99,999 roses, Chinese supermodel Ming Xi and her beau Mario Ho (the son of billionaire casino tycoon Stanley Ho), have officially tied the knot. It seems that they’ve signed the marriage certificate, but haven’t thrown a wedding banquet yet, which we’re sure will be extravagant.
Mario confirmed the happy news on Weibo with a post accompanied by three new photos of the newlyweds and a sweet caption saying: “The person on the left has good taste”. Cute!

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
After getting hitched in a surprise Las Vegas chapel wedding after the Billboard Music Awards on May 2, Joe and Sophie walked the aisle again at their second, more official nuptials in a gorgeous hotel in Carpentras, south of France. The 23-year-old actress wore a stunning embroidered custom Louis Vuitton gown with a lace veil.
Both bride and groom reportedly teared up when exchanging vows at the star-studded albeit private ceremony, which was attended by the couple’s famous friends and family including Sophie’s Game Of Thrones co-star and BFF, Maisie Williams, who was also her maid of honour.
29-year-old Joe, who is one-third of the Jonas Brothers, proposed to 23-year-old Sophie, known for her roles as Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones and as a young Jean Grey in the latest Dark Phoenix movie, in November 2017.
Katharine McPhee & David Foster
On June 28, the 35-year-old singer and actress married the 69-year-old Asia’s Got Talent judge and music producer in a fairytale London ceremony. “The most perfect day with the most perfect husband,” Katharine wrote on Instagram. They had been engaged since June last year!
She wore a gorgeous bespoke Zac Posen strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and almost 230-metres worth of tulle, according to Vogue. But that’s not the only thing that’s unique about her dress – according to Katharine, one of David’s songs, “The Colour of my Love” which he wrote for Celine Dion and Rene Angelil, was embedded into the back of the dress. “It was a relationship that David always admired,” she revealed.

Lin Chi-ling & Akira
On June 6, Taiwanese supermodel Lin Chi-ling surprised everyone when she announced on social media that she had gotten hitched — and not to on-again, off-again beau Jerry Yan (!), much to the dismay of fans — but to Japanese actor and popstar Akira.
Akira, 37, whose real name is Ryōhei Kurosawa, is a member of J-pop group Exile. The pair met when they starred together in the stage version of Red Cliff eight years ago and developed a friendship, but it was not until last year that it developed into something more. Who would have thought?
Still, the 44-year-old doe-eyed goddess has always been searching for love, and had waxed lyrical about it in past interviews, so we’re glad she finally got her happy ending. “I have always believed that if I believe in love, love will one day reward me. After many falls, twists and turns, we met at a different time – a right time, which showed us the face of love,” she said on her Weibo page.
