Michelle Yeoh, the Oscar-winning actress, has finally married her long-time beau, Jean Todt, after a 6992-day engagement. The couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony held in Geneva on Thursday. The wedding program, shared on Instagram by ex-Ferrari Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa, revealed the details of their love story. Yeoh and Todt first met in Shanghai on June 4, 2004. Just two months later, on July 26, Todt proposed to Yeoh, and she said yes. After 6992 days, on July 27, 2023, surrounded by their loved ones, the couple celebrated their special moment together in Geneva.
The wedding program also included photos of the happy couple and their guests. One photo showed Yeoh in a cream silk shirt and tasseled cream skirt, standing next to Todt and Massa, inside an ornately decorated building in Geneva. Another photo captured Yeoh in a nude lace dress with a silk bodice, smiling and embracing Todt. The couple’s wedding was a joyous occasion, with Yeoh’s Best Actress Oscar statuette for her role in ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ making a guest appearance in one of the photos.
Massa, who attended the wedding, expressed his love and well wishes for the couple in the caption of his Instagram post. Yeoh and Todt have yet to share any details of their wedding on their own social media channels.
Yeoh’s wedding comes after she made history as the first Asian woman to win the award for Best Actress at the Oscars earlier this year. In her acceptance speech, she thanked the Academy for embracing diversity and true representation. She emphasized the importance of breaking the glass ceiling and giving a voice to those who have felt unseen and unheard.
The wedding of Yeoh and Todt is a celebration of love and a testament to their enduring commitment. After a 6992-day engagement, the couple has finally tied the knot, surrounded by their loved ones. Yeoh’s journey from winning the Best Actress Oscar to marrying the love of her life is a true inspiration. Their wedding is a reminder that dreams do come true, and love conquers all.
