TANTALIZING AT TWELVE!
WELCOME TO OUR 12TH ISSUE featuring our forecast for Spring and Summer 2019 weddings!
We have received enthusiastic feedback on our Bridesmaids spreads in issues past so we’re bringing that back in this issue with a light and fresh fashion aura. Cruella & Co’s trendsetting infinity dresses have been given a summer-ready flavor in this issue in a photoshoot collaboration with City of Dreams which provided the perfect venue, Dhana de Belen who did the beautiful makeup, and Vladimir Lima of Honeycomb Photocinema who expertly captured the shots made even glitzier with selected heirloom pieces from Goldenhills Jewelry. The gorgeous flowers were provided by Clint Carl Flower Shop and Daphney Ligsay Events & Concepts.
We have more cakes. Looks like IFWM readers love sweet beginnings with sweet endings. We just love, love, love our cake feature with edible objet d’art from Angelyn Cakes, Sugar Crest Cake Design Studio, and Vista Barista Coffee & Bakeshop, three of the Philippines’ most creative and respected cake artists.
We have more food. SMX Convention Center’s collaboration with the Philippines’ premier wedding banquet suppliers: Hizon’s Catering, Josiah’s Catering, Juan Carlo The Caterer, and Richgold Weddings will give you a glimpse of how wedding receptions in SMX is a cut above the rest.
We have more beauty. We are so excited to show you how makeup mavens Joyce Young and Nybie Ng turned our beauty spreads into glamorous pages of exciting hair and makeup ideas for today’s Filipina brides. Beautiful diamonds, indeed a girl's bestfriend, adorned our shoot courtesy of J's Diamond.
Our bridal features showcase the expert handiwork of Tammy Tan in dreamy shoots done in a studio and Novotel Manila Araneta Center with sparkling gems by A. Bernardo's Jewelry and swoon-worthy bouquets by Arleen Blossom Flowers & Balloons.
Novotel’s interiors and its dream wedding-ready garden are the perfect counterpoint to a bridal themed shoot masterfully captured for our spread by Mark Vitasa made even more glamorous with beauty expert Grace del Rosario.
Start flippin’ the pages and Be Inspired!
