A Fun, Bright Beachside Wedding In Panglao Island, Philippines
We love how this wedding in the Philippines feels like a laid-back tropical getaway from start to finish! From the fun, bright colour scheme to the settings that oozed charm and relaxed vibes, it’s evident this couple knows how to kick back and enjoy themselves.
The theme was brought out primarily through the bridesmaids, who wore turquoise gowns, and the family, who stood out in striking orange. Meanwhile the parish church, with its old school wooden pews, antique tiles and fresco ceilings, lent an otherworldly setting to the ceremony. To top it off, the rented turquoise VW minivan matched the theme and vibe perfectly.
The reception, held at the Bohol Beach Club, was set out on picnic tables, surrounded by swaying coconut trees and the finest, whitest sand. Orange, pale pink and white flowers decorated the tabletops, while the seating cards and other stationery were in turquoise. The whole setting looked so magical when dusk set in and the candles and string lights came on! Many thanks to Blinkbox Photos and Cuckoo Cloud Concepts for sharing these photos with us.
Iza: “One of the most memorable moments for me was when I was walking down the aisle and our 3-year-old son (who was our ringbearer) ran up to hold my hand. He began crying as soon as I took my father’s hand. Another of my favourite moments was when I saw everyone having a good time during the reception. The couple’s game was a big hit; almost everyone participated, and then there was singing and dancing afterwards. We felt that there was so much love and joy that night. Everyone from both sides of the family just got together and celebrated our union.”
Tips for brides-to-be: “Stick to your budget, or maybe, just go over a bit. Do not be afraid to cut costs on a few things and get vendors who will fit your budget. You will be surprised by how they can exceed your expectations! Always remember to prioritise how you both want your wedding to be, regardless of the norm. Getting stressed during the planning process is almost inevitable, but on your big day, try to relax, have fun and trust your vendors.”
