Manila Wedding: Duncan + Mary
WEDDING , March 12, 2012
This is the story of a sharing the love with family…
During our vacation in Manila, we got lucky to be able to shoot an intimate blessing of union of Duncan and Mary. They got married in Dubai already but Mary’s family wasn’t able to witness their wedding so the couple decided to bring the celebration to the Philippines.
Duncan and Mary met in Dubai and fell in love. They both have children from their previous marriages. It is not about losing their first spouses but it is finding love again. It meant so much for Mary that her children be there in one of the happiest moment of her life…because finding someone to grow old with is a happy moment that you would want to share with family.
Venue: Bayview Park Hotel, Manila
Mary is your modern DIY woman who is very independent. She actually doesn’t need a lot of make-up to look fab.
These are very sweet moments between a mother and her child, as she helped her mother with her hair, and a father trying to help his son figure out how to make a tie.
Here are gorgeous shots as the bride does her final touches while her groom looks on with admiration.
Yay! A kiss for the photographers. My favorite moment – the second before THE KISS,..the millisecond before their lips touch. Weee!
Before we proceeded to the reception, we had a few group photos in the hotel lobby. And of course, we wouldn’t want to miss a portrait under the Christmas tree!
When you only have family and closest friends at the party, you couldn’t help but get all emotional especially when your only daughter gives a speech wishing you and her new father all the love in the world!
Okay, kids today are all packed with talents. Mary’s daughter after giving her tear-jerking and heart-warming speech, sang with a cousin and then blew everyone away with a special dance number.
After the sumptuous dinner, Duncan and Mary thanked everyone and sealed the night with a kiss. To D + M, stay cool and stay happy!
