Jinri Park And Her Partner John’s Intimate Wedding In Australia Proves Love Conquers All

Because of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the couple decided to postpone their big wedding and tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony held in Sydney, Australia instead

TV host and model Jinri Park got married to her partner John in an intimate wedding held last March 21 in Sydney, Australia. While they had to postpone the grand ceremony to a later date due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Pinoy Big Brother alumna remained thankful for having made it official in the presence of John’s nearest and dearest. 

On Instagram, Jinri shared some snaps of the simple affair where she wore a white dress and finished off her classic look with side-swept bangs and low ponytail. “We still went to the church to legally sign the registry and got married. The weather was perfect, and we had John’s family there to witness,” she wrote in the caption.

The pair also had their prenup shoot in Sydney, Australia, John's hometown, with the help of Canister Films. For the pictorial, they revisited particular locations that have made their relationship unforgettable such as the Pyrmont Bridge where they usually enjoy long walks and the Cockle Bay Wharf where the engagement took place in July 2019.

Jinri and John also tied the knot late last year in her native land South Korea, with her loved ones as their witnesses. At the affair, she wore a pink and purple hanbok—a traditional Korean dress specifically designed for the occasion. Dating back to the Goguryeo Kingdom (37 BCE-668 CE), this attire—usually decked out in vivid colors, simple lines, and harmonious patterns—has long been a significant icon in the country, representing many years of cultural tradition.

In a typical Korean wedding, the pair exchanges vows in the kunbere ceremony that takes about an hour or two to finish. After sipping wine from a gourd, the family then shares a simple meal. A white envelope that contains money for the newlyweds is an important aspect of the celebration, which is usually followed by the pyebaek (a Korean wedding custom) after a few days. The custom includes dates and chestnuts given to the bride, who will later offer it to the home of the groom’s parents to symbolize the value of family.
