Earlier this month, actor Raymond Lam registered his marriage with his girlfriend of a year, model Carina Zhang in Hong Kong. Since then, while the newlyweds have yet to confirm any plans of a formal wedding ceremony, media outlets have reported that the couple will be holding five different wedding ceremonies to celebrate their union.
According to entertainment insiders, the newlyweds will be holding a grand celebration in Europe before returning to Hong Kong to host a banquet.
However, Raymond, who comes from a wealthy family, is said to be planning to host ceremonies in Xiamen and Quanzhou as well.
According to the reports, the actor’s father is known as the “Li Ka-shing of the mainland” for his wealth and business dealings. Thus, the two ceremonies will be used to host his business associates and relatives. Additionally, there will also be a final ceremony held in Carina’s hometown of Jiangsu to accommodate her friends and family.
All in all, the five ceremonies are estimated to cost HKD10 million (S$1.73 million) in total. These “marathon-style” ceremonies are expected to take a month out of the busy couple’s schedules.
Additionally, the reports also shared that Raymond recently purchased a 3000 square foot mansion worth over HKD100 million (S$17.4 million) as his wife was very taken with it. The new property is expected to be the couple’s marital home after Carina relocates to Hong Kong.
However, other reports have also indicated that the couple will be moving into a duplex-unit worth HKD60 million (approximately S$10.45 million) that Raymond purchased in 2015.
