Former MediaCorp star Jacelyn Tay marries the man she reached out to with Bible verses.
On May 6, entrepreneur and former MediaCorp star Jacelyn Tay wed Brian Wong in an intimate ceremony presided by CHC’s deputy senior pastor Tan Ye Peng. It took place at City Harvest’s Jurong West church, witnessed by 130 of their family members and friends.
The hall was bedecked with white balloons and blooms, but none of it rivaled the blushing bride herself, who made her entrance in an elegant cocktail dress, arm in arm with her debonair groom.
The moment vows were exchanged, everyone erupted into loud cheers and thunderous applause, filled with joy that a year of dating had culminated in this lovely and holy union.
Tay and Wong met in 2008, when Tay was looking to place advertisements for her business Body Inc. Wong was heading a sales team at MediaCorp at the time. From that encounter, they became friends. Tay found herself reaching out to Wong, sharing the Word and texting him Bible verses regularly. Initially sceptical, Wong was touched when he saw for himself how Tay’s life had been changed for the better by her faith.

Ultimately it was a Bible verse that convinced Wong to pursue Tay. While praying, he was reminded of the verse from Ecclesiastes 4:9: “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work.” Unbeknownst to him, when Tay prayed about a life partner, this was the same verse God led her to. Upon sharing this, they realized that God meant them for each other.
The Wongs say they have good role models for marriage. “We take inspiration from couples in church who remain steadfast in their love for each other despite difficulties along the way. A sterling example is Pastor Tan; he is able to juggle so much and yet be a loving family man. His heart is so loyal and faithful—one God, one woman and one family. We look up to him very much.”
