Raymond Lam (林峯) and Carina Zhang (張馨月) participated in Chinese reality show, Viva La Romance 5 (妻子的浪漫旅行5). In the finale, she wore a wedding gown and sang love song as a surprise to her husband. It turns out that both are married for nearly 3 years and their daughter is almost a year old, but they have yet to conduct a wedding and it becomes a heated discussion.
Subsequently, Carina explained via a long online message: “The main reason is because of the pandemic. I was pregnant after tying the knot for a month and my daughter is nearly a year old. My top priority is my family and it does not matter if I have a wedding, (I know somebody will laugh at me and said Raymond does not love me and refuses to give me a wedding. Perhaps my parent-in-law dislike me as well. Looks like you understand him and his family better.) Enjoying a blissful marriage and watching my daughter having a happy and healthy childhood are the most important. Hence, I do not rush him at all. However, I wish Raymond could see me in a wedding gown and give him a surprise. Conducting a wedding does not matter but I must wear a wedding gown. (You could say I try to force him through the show. We are husband and wife now. Why should I force him?”
Carina added Raymond was a person who emphasised on ceremonies and will definitely arrange a wedding: “He promises me to conduct a wedding within 2 years depending on the pandemic. After all, there are too many problems in Hong Kong. I also do not mind him filming intimate scenes as it is part of his job. I hope he will continue to produce good films to everybody.”
