Top 10 Celebrity Weddings
Wedding bells are always a source of joy. But the most resounding celebrity wedding bells are here in the top 10 celebrity weddings of all time:
Another high-profile wedding in the Philippines involved the wedding of Bernadette Sembrano and Emilio “Orange” Aguinaldo IV. Aguinaldo’s grandfather is Emilio Aguinaldo, the first president of the Philippine republic. He is also the vice-mayor of Kawit, Cavite. Sembrano’s car plate number was 6-1-2, which was the same day that they got married. June 12 also happened to be the feast day of Philippine Independence. The Filipiniana-themed wedding rites were held in Chapel on the Hill, Don Bosco, Nasugbu, Batangas with reception at the romantic Sonya’s Garden in Alfonso, Cavite on June 12, 2008.
Former child star Vandolph, who is also Comedy King Dolphy’s son, married dancer Jenny Salimao last December 3, 2007 at Notre Dame Devi Chapelle Fernbrook Gardens Portifino South, Daan Reyna, Las Piñas. They had a very grand reception at the Grand Tropical Conservatory Fernbrook Gardens. It was a marriage with principal sponsors from showbiz and politics (presidentiable and Sen. Manny Villar, Mayor Alfredo Lim, Sen. Loren Legarda, Kris Aquino and Sharon Cuneta, just to name a few.)
From Assunta’s Vera Wang gown to the hype from their whirlwind romance, this wedding is a surefire top 10 contender for the most memorable celebrity weddings. It was Congressman Ledesma’s second chance for marriage after his former wife suffered from cancer. Assunta de Rossi’s sister Alex and mother Nenita Schiavone initially opposed the wedding, but it still pushed through at Sanctuario de San Antonio in Makati last March 14, 2004.
After a year and a half of engagement and 3 years of knowing each other, Broadway singer and actress Lea Salonga finally decided to share sweet music in marital bliss with Robert Chien on January 10, 2004. It was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, California. Monique Lhuillier designed the wedding gown. Killer background music and songs graced the event with glowing candles by the balcony. The motif was ivory, and cranberry with hints of gold.
Filipino-Mexican actor, model and host Richard Gomez married Lux hair model Lucy Torres on April 28, 1998 in St. Peter and Paul Parish in Ormoc, Leyte. Torres, a strikingly lovely heiress of her family’s sugar plantation, did not expect Richard, her long-time teenage crush to court her formally.
The very sophisticated Tagaytay Highlands wedding between celebrities Claudine Barreto and Raymart Santiago was one of the most memorable weddings of that year. It was held on March 26, 2007. Baretto, from ABS-CBN (at the time until her recent shocking transfer to GMA), and Santiago, from GMA Network, had a memorable event where executives from the two rival networks were together.
Turkish businessman Yilmas Bektas and beauty queen-turned-actress and TV host Ruffa Gutierrez had a very grand wedding which had all eyes on them. It generated as much headlines as their equally grand annulment and separation in 2007. Gutierrez had to convert to Islam when she got married to Bektas. Their wedding was the grandest. An added surprise was that Ruffa was already 3 months pregnant with their first baby Lorin at the time of the wedding.
After pairing up as a loveteam in the 1980’s movie Dear Heart, celebrities Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion married in civil rites and then a church wedding on September 23, 1984. For their principal sponsor, they had late former President Ferdinand Marcos. Both at age 19, Sharon and Gabby had their first and only daughter KC who is now also a famous celebrity in local showbiz.
