Today I write this post as a photographer but mostly as a friend. I want to tell the story of a glamorous wedding on the beach in the Philippines.
Valentina and Daniele are dear friends, I have been so lucky to follow them in this adventure out of the ordinary. Usually, couples from abroad choose Europe for their big day. Now, two Italians, in love with this land, decided to celebrate their wedding on the white beach of Boracay Island.
An original choice, happily shared by few relatives and friends present at the wedding. The ingredients are the best ones for an intimate elopement: white sandy beach, crystal clear sea, palm trees and a fabulous sun. Every detail has been carefully planned, each color coordinated with the others, the flowers and the decor were just excellent.
Valentina and Daniele chose the resort Asya Premier Suite as the venue for their wedding. Bride and groom got dressed in the elegant suite and celebrated the wedding by the sea, on the resort’s private beach. Then they welcomed their guests for the reception in another area of the same beach, a real dream for friends and relatives.
We were just a few excited guests. The ceremony was touching, romantic and sweet, with a breathtaking backdrop of the transparent blue sea.
The area of the ceremony has been arranged magically by the floral designer of the resort. White orchids, Philippines’ roses, small wooden totems to create the entrance for the bride, silk and bamboo, shells and many candles.
Between tears of joy, smiles, and applauses, Valentina and Daniele promised each other eternal love art sunset.
After the ceremony, a few photos on the beach and then it’s time to dine, strictly barefoot on the beach. The food was made by a phenomenal Asian chef who has amazed us with a menu of fresh fish, vegetables and great pairings. The decor has maintained the style of the ceremony and the entire event. Lots of flowers and shells decorated the table, many candles created a magical atmosphere around us while expecting the light of the evening.
Daniele and Valentina have settled the real marriage on the beach, recreating that atmosphere that makes us dream. They were confident and resourceful, and the result has left everyone speechless.
A gorgeous couple and a wedding hard to forget, here are the best pictures from the international wedding of Valentina and Daniele in Boracay.
Many heartfelt wishes to this beautiful couple!
