We love this bride’s mantra, “Cosy doesn’t always mean costly”. Couples really need to rethink their wedding budgets instead of simply following what other couples out there are doing. Prioritise the things that are important to you and keep your wedding meaningful and warm. Thanks, Myio Okamoto, for this beautiful set of photos.

Vida: “My husband cried as I was walking down the aisle; I didn’t expect that. I felt like I was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen in his life. That was when I realised: this is it, I’m going to spend a lifetime with this man, and I feel so loved! It was one of the happiest days of my life.

“We wanted a cool and cosy wedding in Tagaytay, in a place where everyone would feel at home, so we decided to have it in our backyard. The pastel colours, gentle and bright just like our love for each other, complemented our rustic, homey wedding well.

Tips from the bride: “Cosy doesn’t always mean costly. You can have the perfect wedding right outside your home.”
