Ekin Cheng's secret surprise wedding in Tokyo


Hong Kong - Can you have a secret surprise wedding in the age of Instagram?

Movie star Ekin Cheng, 45, and television star Yoyo Mung, 39, did, sort of, and their guests in Tokyo did not know they were attending a wedding till they arrived at the ceremony in an airy French restaurant on Monday, said Ming Pao Daily News.

But by Tuesday, the guest list had been posted online by a Hong Kong friend of the Japanese staff of the restaurant, and the couple had to confirm their marriage, said Apple Daily.

Cheng posted on Weibo a photo of teddy bears bearing the couple's initials, E and Y. The Y bear was wearing a wedding veil.
