Did Julian Cheung just throw another wedding for wife Anita Yuen? Whether it was a real one or not, his latest display of love will surely pull on your heartstrings. To pull this off, Julian enlisted the help of his Call Me by Fire teammates Zhang Yunlong, Mike Angelo and Fan Shiqi who all looked dashing in their winter white tuxedos. Singing the song “Unparalleled Beauty”, his teammates stepped back midway to give him the stage.
With all eyes on him, Julian said “I once said I hope to be able to take a wedding photo with my wife when I’m 60. But then I thought, why, why did we have to wait until then? I specially want to give her a wedding ceremony 10 years early” he said. With everyone eagerly awaiting what comes next, his next words had everyone practically swooning: “Anita Yuen! You are the unparalleled beauty of my heart!”
The spotlight then switches over to a tearful Anita who looks radiant and gorgeous in a wedding gown. Too impatient to wait, a tearful Julian then ran up the “aisle” to his wife who was slowly making her way towards him. By that time both the” bride and the groom” were in tears. Although Julian tried to hold his emotions back to serenade his wife, they just ended up tearfully smiling at each other. The couple was noticeably shaking too when it was time to lift Anita’s veil and to slip the ring onto her ring finger.
What a lovely way to celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary especially since they never got to hold a ceremony when they married in the US in 2001. I also love that his three team mates served as Anita’s “bridesmen” fluffing out her gown afterwards and then tossing wedding sweets to the tearful audience. While it may be all part of the show, there’s no denying that it was a very sweet tribute to his wife.

There are always so many rumours about him being unhappy and henpecked etc… regardless if he is henpecked…he is definitely very happy to be married to her. They look so good together.
Why do they think that having the fluff of white gowns and a big show is the most important thing for a woman? Of course, it would be nice to have one. The interviewer asked the right questions.
But having one after decades of marriage, is even more meaningful, as it is now a celebration of promises fulfilled and proven, of sweet and bitter memories, of good times and bad, of mistakes and forgiveness, of what love and commitment really means. No longer starry-eye youths, who think that romantic love alone can endure all life trials. I’m sure all these thoughts ran through their minds as they walked towards each other. And through the minds of all those who were moved to tears.
Don’t know how I felt about this performance. Maybe this is the type of attention she likes, but I almost feel like Chilam is using this entire demonstration of love to his advantage in the competition. I mean, how do you not vote for his team after this? You’d kind of be a jerk not to.
isn’t this the type of celebration that should be relegated to anniversaries rather than a wedding? I mean, anniversaries are to commemorate the yearly passage of marriages.
this is sweet, too, though, to make up for a wedding that never happened.
personally, it’s a bit performative for me (bcus chilam is using an opportunity on tv to perform a wedding and win points rather than an individual celebration just for his wife for no other purpose than to state his appreciation.)
I agree that a wedding 20+ years into a marriage is way more meaningful than a wedding before the actual marriage takes place, but those are called renewal vows….
