Jamie and Bogs (San Sebastian Church, The Conservatory)

Can we just say we love our brides and grooms? Specially those who make sure that we have tons of wonderful stuff to shoot and who absolutely and completely trust us. :D One such couple is Jamie and Bogs who had their Tuscan-inspired wedding at the San Sebastian Church and the Manila Peninsula Conservatory last April 18.

Starting the day right. We were greeted with all these DIY placeholders on fresh fruits:
Tip: Mimi gets her flow doing details. Surprise her, and I bet she’ll surprise you back. ;)

The Cumpas family seal. Bogs the banker, Jamie the doctor:

I was wondering why Mimi was so engrossed with those J&B bottles from the mini bar. J&B gets? It took a while for me to get it.

Starting the day right, part deux. Champagne for the bride :)

Mimi and I both agree that Veluz outdid herself (like that’s still possible) with Jamie’s gorgeous gown.

The Basilica Minore de San Sebastian, a fire and earthquake-proof neo-gothic structure, is the only all-steel church in Asia. Its steel parts were shipped from Belgium, the stained glass windows from Germany. It is now in the Tentative List of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

A chandelier with light streaming through a stained glass as the background:

Veil play. Jamie, with the help of Niko, tries to get her veil under control before the church doors open:




Some couple portraits are usually taken outside the church, with the church’s beautiful facade as the background. But sometimes, you get blessed with a more interesting backdrop:

A bit of Tuscany at the Manila Peninsula Conservatory

An emotional moment as Jamie’s father serenades her with a song:

The first dance. Sweet! We love how they’re so into each other:
Tip: Let go during the dance. Stop worrying about the reception details, or how everyone’s looking at you or that you might step on one’s foot. You have your hubby/wifey by your side… look into each other’s eyes, hug, kiss, savor the moment.


The engagement portraits also turned out pretty well, we’d like to share a few too…




To Bogs & Jamie, congratulations and best wishes! Thanks for the superb time!
