Taipei, Jan. 18 (CNA) Taiwanese Mandopop king Jay Chou (周杰倫) tied the knot Sunday with model Hannah Quinlivan (昆凌) in a church in Britain, where an extravagant wedding was held, featuring a song composed by Chou and played by a local string ensemble.

The wedding at Selby Abbey, a church in the Yorkshire town of Selby, was decorated in a splendid style, with the couple dressed in handmade wedding clothes.

Chou, who had his own wedding music played, explained that he wrote the song himself "to make the wedding different."

"Chou seemed a little bit nervous. He was busy and happy," Chou's agent, Yang Chun-jung said. "Although it took a long time for the rehearsal, he was very satisfied with the orchestra."

"The wedding was super-romantic," Yang said.

Chou's wife has a Taiwanese mother and an Australian father.
