45-year-old David Tao finally married his girlfriend Penny Jiang yesterday in a grand affair that cost him NT$6million (approximately S$250,000). The lovebirds tied the knot at a church ceremony in morning followed by a 55-table banquet at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Taipei last night.
The ceremony was hosted by Taiwanese-American actor David Wu and featured photos from their loving proposal in Palawan, Philippines. Penny walked down the aisle hand in hand with her father and David’s mother was the marriage officiant.
Taiwanese host Chang Hsiao-yen specially wore a bow tie to represent David’s deceased father Tao Dawei and gave her congratulatory speech to the newlyweds. In addition, singer Jam Hsiao gave them his blessings through his song ‘Love’,and the couple sang ‘Marry Me’in a tear-jerking duet.
The newly-weds met the media before their wedding dinner and Penny wore a black gown designed by Vera Wang worth NT$240,000 (approximately S$10,000). David even kissed Penny on the cheek and posed for the cameras.
The singer revealed both of them have agreed on trying for a child after his concert ends this year and David’s mother hopes the couple will bear her two grandchildren in future.
