It was a glorious day on the 14th of March 2020, the day Carlos and Nicole got married. There were a lot of things that will make this wedding memorable to me that day. But the part that struck a chord to me the most was that moment when I was looking at Nicole through the lens of my camera, as she comes walking down the aisle of Madonna Del Divino Amore Quasi church and seeing that serene smile on her face and the joy on Carlos’ eyes looking back at her. Seeing this scene unfold, no one would think that just two days ago the country went into lockdown because of the pandemic. It brought me back to the time when I was meeting the couple for the first time to discuss the details of their wedding. I still remember the excitement on Nicole’s face as she narrates her plans on DIY-ing her own wedding and decorating their wedding venue in Ayala Alabang Country Club herself. Being an Interior Designer, she wanted her own personal touch in designing the space for the church and the venue. I also discovered then that Carlos and Nicole weren’t big fans of posing infront of a camera so they’ve requested to have the wedding photo and video coverage to be focused more on their family and friends, with less directing and to be more candid and natural. After a few round of drinks and getting to know them better, I immediately knew how I wanted to capture their wedding. Which is why I was thrilled to find out, when the evening came to an end, that they are hiring me and my team as their wedding videographer and photographer. Little did we know at that time that a pandemic was just looming around the corner and that a lockdown were to be imposed and mass gatherings to be prohibited. So Carlos and Nicole had to do a few adjustments to their wedding plans. They both decided to have the reception in Carlos’ house instead and to be attended only by their closest family and friends. There would be no program or speeches, which meant they had to do away with their Same-Day-Edit video too. But all these only made for a more intimate and warm atmosphere where they were able to create wonderful memories with every single guest that they will forever treasure. Kudos to the sweet but strong couple who had made a rainbow out of their storm!
“They say love is all about timing. Binigay ka nya nung time na give up nako sa love. Sabi ko noon, okay nako. Tanggap ko na maging single forever. But at the right moment in God’s perfect time dumating ka.” - These are the words Marvin wrote in a letter he gave to Cherry Rose to read right before she down walks the aisle. I could not help but well-up a little as our team captures this beautiful and emotional moment. The couple who was brought together by their love of travelling, ended with Marvin bending on one knee to propose to Cherry Rose in the charming and ancient City of Siem Reap, Cambodia. But like they say, “Home is where the heart is.” And so despite their wanderlust, they both decided to tie-the-knot in Sto. Sepulcro Church in Landayan, San Pedro, Laguna, Cherry Rose’s own hometown. A church famous for the miraculous “Lolo Uweng”, a tourist destination in itself. Their reception was held in the romantic setting of La Faite Home and Country Garden. We wish nothing but the best for these two globetrotters as they embark on their new adventure as husband and wives and we are looking forward to hearing more about their travels around the world!
Photo and Video session of Roy and Maan @ Studio Namu.
As we check on the venue over the internet prior the shoot for ideas we thought that Studio Namu was a really small studio that caters more on photo rather than video, but soon as we get there and made a walk-through. Amazed! the venue was quite huge! Enough room and space for the both photo and video to tell a story!
Watch Roy and Maan's Save-the-Date video as both lovers enjoy the comfortable, ambient scene at Studio Namu.
