- Wedding: March 2013
We have been engaged sinced 25th of December 2011..
Our 1st wedding was on the Valentine’s Day 2012 (3 years after we first met)
and my hubby was the one who made the preparations including decorating the reception in Nottingham…all I did was to choose my dress (lol)… it had the ‘don’t tell the bride’ sort of feeling.
So when we decided to marry for the second time (in our hometown in Zamboanga, Philippines)… this time we did the planning and preparations together.
Planning a wedding overseas was a huge task! We made two sets of invitations, one for overseas guests (each cover different to their location), and the other for hometown guests.. We persevered, I even got the idea for the invites here in Weddingbee. It took us a year of organising and doing the DYI projects, also including deciding on the decor and favours, bridesmaids dresses, shoes, etc sending them over via courier 2 months before the wedding. It was chaotic at times but nevertheless well worth it. I even managed to design my own dress… best part of it was that my husband was the one who took my measurements as the dress was being made back home, just weeks before we are due to arrive. And, it was a great fit! so kudos to him (Hubby was clueless as to what the dress looks like, nor did he even know where to start when he was taking my measurements, he had to get a crash course on YouTube. lol)
Also, I sang during the wedding march… I initially wanted to do it for our wedding vows.. but the church was reluctant as the ceremony rites are strictly and traditionally to be followed, unaltered. It was my gift to my husband.
Anyway, here are some of our pre-nup photos, taken a week before the wedding.
We had 12 sets of bridesmaids and groomsmen!!
I wouldn’t bore you anymore with my banter, I will just let the photos and video speak for us.
