Take a peek into how university lovebirds Andy Tan and Neville Manaois styled their dreamy DIY wedding, inspired by the French countryside.
The breathtaking Philippines event was a handmade extravaganza.
Andy says, “Weekends leading to the wedding were mostly spent going to thrift shops, painting, hammering and sawing the wooden crates and seating plan holder, and creating paper flowers, pompoms, makeshift chandeliers, mustaches-on-a-stick and lots of other décor.”
She adds, “For a time being the small office in front of Nev’s parent’s house became my own wedding prep office!”
The couple even created a mock set-up in the garden prior to the day, complete with tables, chairs and hanging lights – the extra preparation most definitely paying off.
With 80 of their friends and family, the crafty couple walked down the aisle on a cold December day set in Tagaytay, a breezy city not so far from Manila.
When asked about what they love about each other, Andy responds, “Everything! [We have] lots of differences but somehow, everything just falls into place.” Well, their wedding was no different; everything fell perfectly into place.
