Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera are TV superstars from the Philippines. In 2014 they were married at the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral in Quezon City in a ceremony fit for royalty.
(This was way better than Kim Kardashian marrying Kris Humphries. Plus their marriage already lasted longer than her marriage to Kris so…yeah. Her wedding doesn’t even count anymore).
Okay, so I ran across this beautiful event while searching for ‘huge wedding cakes,’ which I plan to blog about real soon. That search brought me to this photo:
When I saw this cake I was like, “Wow! Who is this couple? They must be rich. Look how beautiful!”
As it turns out, this was the wedding of a power couple in another country. To give you an idea of just how extravagant this was, let’s begin with mass. The mass was celebrated by eight bishops and seven priests. The guests included several celebrities. The wedding party consisted of 18 bridesmaids, 18 groomsmen AND the president of their country was the groom’s best man! (President Benigno Aquino III was the president at the time).
Marian’s romantic wedding gown was designed by Dubai-based international designer, Michael Cinco. The ballgown featured embroidered French lace embellished with Swarovski crystals, a cinched waistline, and a cathedral train.
On top her head Marian wore a crown inspired by Queen Elizabeth’s Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara.
I have provided a short Youtube video of the “Royal Wedding” below. Followed by photos of the wedding taken by www.niceprintphoto.com. It looks like the perfect wedding. Amazing! You have to watch the video.
