In a matter of days, we will be bidding goodbye to the year 2018 and welcome the new year with renewed strength and hope for better things to come. But before we finally remove the last page of the calendar, let us look back to those happy times of local celebrities who exchanged “I do’s” in 2018.
Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia
If there is only one word to describe Billy and Coleen’s wedding, definitely it would be “perfect”. Held at the luxurious Balesin Island, the wedding set up is everything a girl can ever ask for – overflowing flowers, mirrored aisle, grand arch and of course, the sea as the background. The bride shows her physique in a figure-hugging fully-beaded gown by Israeli designer Galia Lahav and completed her look by barely-there makeup. Billy is dapper in his brown suit by Edwin Tan.

The model and creative director of Sunnies Studio and Sunnies Face tied the knot with her fiance TV Host Cliff Ho in Bali, Indonesia. The Alila Villas resort in Uluwatu provides a perfect venue for their tropical wedding. Martine, in a Rosa Clara gown, walked the aisle lined with white flowers. She completed the look with a customized shoes by LA-based brand Rafa and rosy-gold-warm tones make up.
Christian Bautista and Kat Ramnani

Another couple who made it official in Bali is Christian Bautista and Kat Ramnani. The wedding in Tirtha Uluwatu is made magical by a glass-walled chapel, glass chairs, aisle loaded with flowers and of course, the ocean as the background. Kat wore a figure-hugging bustier gown by Israeli designer Inbal Dror while Christian don an elegant black suit with deep green blazer by Francis Libiran.

Lotlot de Leon and Fadi El Soury
It’s a beautiful day for Lotlot de Leon and Lebanese businessman Fadi El Soury. The couple exchanged “I do’s” in an intimate garden ceremony attended by family and close friends. The bride’s gown, groom’s suit and the entourage attire are all by Zandra Lim.
Iza Calzado and Ben Wintle
December 19, 2018
Why choose between the beach and garden when you can have both? The stars’ most favorite event stylist, Gideon Hermosa turned the breathtaking Coron beachside into a beautiful rustic setup filled with flowers of various kinds. Iza, in her lacey Rajo Laurel wedding gown, walked the winding aisle also lined with flowers on both sides. Ben on the other hand, is relaxed in his nude-colored suit.
