Van Ness Wu cries as S'pore bride sings to him
by Charlene Chua

SINGAPORE - The bride surprised her singer-groom by serenading him with a song.

It was an oldie, and it got the groom, American-born Taiwanese singer-actor Van Ness Wu, and the guests all teary-eyed.

In return, he gave her three songs. But, instead of singing them himself, the former member of mega-popular Taiwanese boy band F4 got his pal, Taiwan star Wang Lee Hom, to sing them.

The bride was Ms Arissa Cheo, a Singaporean.

On Sunday night, they held their purple-themed wedding dinner at The St Regis Singapore hotel amid laughter, tears and secret surprises.

A guest, who wanted to be known only as Mr X, said Wu, 35, was visibly touched as Ms Cheo, a 30-year-old jewellery designer, sang him an oldie.

Among the more than 500 guests present were celebrities such as Taiwan star Jerry Yan and Hong Kong's Andy On, Jaycee Chan and Philip Ng.

Yan, who was sporting a goatee, was the only F4 member who attended the dinner.

Mr X told The New Paper: "(The wedding dinner) looked like a fairy tale.

"I met Arissa a few years ago and she's a nice girl, very sweet... They are the perfect couple."

On Ms Cheo singing to her husband, he said: "Arissa's no Whitney Houston, but she's got a really sweet voice."

So how did Wu surprise his bride in return?

Laughing, Mr X said: "Er, he got Lee Hom to sing three songs to Arissa. I think that more than made up for her surprise to him."
