Tony Leung and Carina Lau to wed in Bhutan?

Hong Kong celebrity couple Tony Leung and Carina Lau is getting married after 19-years into relationship. The couple hinted about their marriage a few months ago, but never released much details to the public… leaving plenty of rooms for speculations.

The hottest rumour is that they would tie their knots on July 21 in a private wedding ceremony; while another suggests that the wedding would be held in October with truck-load of celebrity guests.

Wedding in Bhutan?

While July 21 seems almost certain as wedding date, the venue for the wedding is still a relative mystery… rumours shifted from Bali to a private island in Thailand, and now to Bhutan.

It’s reported that one of the invited guests, veteran entertainer Eric Tsang, has confirmed the location to be in Bhutan… so, it could very well be a perfect guess this time.

Both Tony and Carina are devoted Buddhist… and Bhutan, being a Buddhist country, seems like a logical choice for their wedding venue.

Besides, Bhutan is famous for its strict regulations on foreign visitors, which sounds like another good reasons to have celebrity weddings there… Tony and Carina won’t need to worry much about paparazzi, as unwanted media would find it difficult to be granted entries during that period.

Regardless of dates and venue, it’s good to see them getting married finally. Congrats.
