Official Pictures of the Hawaiian Wedding of Oguri Shun and Yamada Yu

*thud* That, my friends, is the sound of a million hearts sinking like a rock today. Much as it’s been impossible to deny that Oguri Shun and Yamada Yu have been married since March of 2011 when she held a news conference in Tokyo revealing that they officially registered their marriage, there have been no photographic evidence to cement this reality. That’s all changed today when official pictures have been released of the couple holding a wedding ceremony this past weekend on the gorgeous Hawaiian island of Lan’ai at the Four Seasons hotel. This will be the third “wedding” for the couple, the first being when they registered the marriage officially, next came a friends and family ceremony in Yu’s hometown of Okinawa, and finally this ceremony in Hawaii attended by around 100 of their closest friends and family. MCing the wedding were their friends the comedy tuo Tunnels. Yamadu Yu wore a strapless princess gown by Ian Stuart, while Shun went with a casual look of white shirt with a pink vest. Considering this was a Hawaiian beach wedding, I’d say he was just right while she was the overdressed one, though she looked utterly breathtaking. It doesn’t hurt to be wearing a mile-wide smile while standing next to her hubby Oguri Shun.

The couple released the following statement after the wedding “It’s the beginning of a new year and we received a lot of congratulations from our close friends and senpai for our marriage. From here on, we would like to continue to approach our work sincerely while cherishing a family.” Awwwwww, I would like if you two approached babymaking sincerely and pop the world out a bundle of perfection from the co-mingling of the genes of utter gloriousness. The reason the couple picked Hawaii was because they have been visiting often since they started dating back in 2008 and both love the islands so much they thought it would be perfect to have their wedding there. I wholeheartedly agree! Hawaii is the most wonderful place to have a destination wedding, it’s fun for the bride and groom and for all their guests. I would give a kidney to have been there watching this wedding. Perhaps its not such a good idea, as I would alternate between sobbing incoherently and trying to rush the altar to liberate the groom. Heh. All kidding aside, totally happy for the beautiful couple and thank god they finally released pictures otherwise this might become some sort of urban legend that Shun is off the market.

Only Oguri Shun can make a salmon-colored vest/pants combo not look hideous and instead rather apropos for the occasion.

  1. I feel like he’s channelling Huga in the first picture. But may be it’s just me who sees Huga in him all the time…..

  2. It’s sooooo weird.
    I pulled up this article and couldn’t read any of the words, or see any of the pictures.

    [I can’t hear you I can’t hear you I can’t hear you]

    • I know! Clearly he’s all about making the wifey happy. I don’t know any guy who likes the whole shebang of a wedding ceremony, much less two!

  3. OMG, they look so great. I’ve been out of the JDrama scene for a couple years until a few months ago so I’m just gonna say I had no idea they were married at all. So when I read this headline, I almost had a heart attack. lmao

    Still, I’m very happy for them. Oguri Shun is my fav J-actor ever, so it’s great seeing him so happy. And they look fab together.

    I agree about her dress; it’s gorgeous but a little elaborate for the wedding they chose. I like the first photo the most tho. Yamada’s cute wrap shirt (dress?) goes well with Oguri’s casual button down shirt and vest.

  4. *cries with no tears* but i’m not sad, just happy, i mean i like oguri shun but just as an actor not really that kind of like lol. it’s just that i feel kinda old (even though i’m just 17 and time flies so fast coz’ i was reminded of Hanazawa Rui from HYD on the 2nd photo because that’s the exact smile same Rui signature smile in HYD and he’s just a kid (not really kind just you know young as in marriage is still miles away for him) back then. yeah, the first time i saw him was in HYD (yeah, i was only staring at matsumuto jun in gokusen(my 1st jdorama) so…heh, then i found later on that they’re really close since i read somewhere that jun told the director or producer that he would join HYD if they don’t cast shun and so i became a true fan of shun too). i mean who knew that this cute, funny oddball would marry yamada yuu (i saw her first and also like her in seigi no mikata),a gorgeous lady and is now starting a family. just watch this bts of him from his HYD days yeah i have no idea he’s the complete opposite of his characters in dramas in real life before i watched this lol. i was like “no way, i have no idea he’s a weird and fun person in real life” then i came to like him more

  5. ,congrats to both of them..m hoping they’ll also release photos of their second wedding..coz when they say friends, that’s gonna include Jun and Toma, right? right?

  6. I saw this on Tokyohive yesterday and I kinda knew you were going to post it here… he’s one good looking dude even in pink!

  7. I, with no thoughts of malice whatsoever, admire Yu Yamada. Gotta give it to the gal who stakes her claim. There have been many reports on how Yu was stalking Shun’s shootings and how she was a bitch on Shun’s leading ladies. These makes her appear like a huge bitch but looks who’s laughing now. I wish them happiness and yes, Oguri Shun looks amazing in salmon.

  8. They’ve been together so long, it feels like they’ve been married from the start. Always figured they’d make it official and therefore reconciled to this fact long ago. But what blows my mind is the moment this man signed the papers he got hotter!! I promise this never happens. Marriage usually fizzles the sizzles but now I can officially say, in this case “It’s witchcraft.” Lol.

    Beautiful photos. She looks amazing. The joy can not be denied.

  9. *thud* indeed. But I must admit, good for her for staking her claim and marrying him 3 times over. And God, he looks so hot with that salmon blazer it’s not even funny. That first pic is absolutely gorgeous!

  10. I dunno y but he looks really bored in the first pic and his smile looks so forced in the 2nd pic! Or is it just coz i WANT him to look bored and forced lol XD

  11. I like them both, they look gorgeous, but her dress on the first pic is awful! It looks like she’s naked and using a towel to cover up her body!

  12. awwww, baby shun (in the first GTO) is now married 😉 “sniffs” its been so long that i have first seen him in the 90’s GTO to Gokusen to HYD to Conan to RMPW . . . “tears starts welling in my eyes” . . . i’m happy for you Shun!!!
