This is not your ordinary wedding.
This is a suprise wedding for the groom arranged by the bride.
It was back in May when I got the opportunity to work with Li-J as the designer for my bride’s wedding gown in Tagaytay. Come June and she messaged me about her plan, and that is to hold a surprise wedding for her then fiance, Vince. I was thrilled with the idea, and we began conceptualizing ever since.
Li-j is currently a professor in Slim’s Fashion & Arts School (Official Page) while Vince is working as a nurse in Qatar. Fast forward to 9 years of their relationship and here we are covering the most challenging, nerve-wracking event we ever had the opportunity to document. Everyone was supportive from the family, friends and even the church. It was an experience like no other!
So I’m happy to present to you our Same Day Edit Video for this awesome surprise wedding. Enjoy!
Disclaimer : If you are wondering what we are doing at the altar, we already spoke with the priest beforehand and since the chapel is really cute, we were allowed to shoot from there.
