16 Photos from Cecilia Liu and Nicky Wu's fabulous wedding in Bali
Cecilia Liu and Nicky Wu, the real-life star couple from Scarlet Heart (Bu Bu Jing Xin), married at a beautiful resort in Bali on March 20, 2016. We have photos galore. Find out about the romantic wedding, the bridal gown that was kept secret until wedding day, the significant numbers engraved inside the wedding bands, what the groom said that brought the bride to tears, and more.
The romantic wedding was held outdoors at the AYANA Resort and Spa Bali. Under the bright blue sky, the ground was strewn with 500,000 roses from Ecuador. The color theme was in soft blue and white. At exactly 5:08 pm, the more than 300 guests saw the beautiful bride walk on the arm of her father on the flowery path of love toward her groom, Nicky Wu, who has been waiting patiently for this special moment
Nicky Wu said in his vow, "I've been through many difficulties in life and have complained to God more than once that he wasn't kind to me. I thought He wasn't fair. He made me experience so much unhappiness." Guests started cheering him as he was choked with emotions. He continued, "But now I have finally realized the reason. God has saved the best for me until now." As the bride and groom gazed deeply at each other, he said, "I will listen to you. Thank you all. Thank you." The couple then embraced and kissed.
Nicky Wu's touching words brought Cecilia to tears. The couple started dating after they filmed the wildly popular Scarlet Heart (Bu Bu Jing Xin), the 2011 Chinese drama that is now considered the romantic classic in the time-traveling genre. They married via registration in China about a year ago, and now they have finally sealed their love by holding a fabulous wedding in front of their many family and friends. The ceremony was officiated by Damian Lau, who played Nicky's father, Emperor Kangxi, in Scarlet Heart.
Symbolism abounded at the wedding. The flowery path that Cecilia walked on was S-shaped, as S is the initial of her Chinese name, Liu Shishi. Their One-Diamond wedding bands from De Beers are engraved with these numbers, 644 and 576, which are phonetically similar to the couple's Chinese names: Liu Shishi (劉詩詩) and Wu Chilong (吳奇隆). For the wedding's logo, the couple combined their last names' initials to form "WL" and extended a new meaning, "We Love."
The number 6 certainly seems to be a lucky number, as before the wedding took place, it was reported that Nicky transferred 60 percent of his entertainment company to Cecilia as a stunning wedding gift that's worth about 166 million in US dollars. The lavish wedding included the all-expense-paid wedding festivities that last 3 days for all the guests and Cecilia's handmade bridal gown by Carven that costs close to half a million US dollars. Nicky wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit.

Ultimately, what really matters is just the two of them as they finally unite as a couple, witnessed by those who are their dearest family and friends.
Congratulations, Cecilia and Nicky, as you fulfill your promise of love from now to eternity.
