After six years of dating, Ella Pangilinan and her non-showbiz partner Enrique Miranda officially tied the knot in a Filipino-themed star-studded ceremony.
The couple—who got married at the Puerta Real Gardens in Intramuros, followed by a reception at Casa de Memoria—was joined by many familiar faces from the showbiz and creatives industry.
Here are some of the celebrities and personalities who graced the special event last Dec. 6.
Pangilinan and Valenciano Families
Coming from a renowned family, the affair was already deemed star-studded from Ella’s family alone; from her brother Donny Pangilinan, her mom Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan, Gab Pangilinan with her fiancé Myke Salomon, to other notable figures like Atty. Kiko Pangilinan and daughter Miel.
Also present are siblings Gab, Paolo, and Kiana Valenciano, as well as their dad “Mr. Pure Energy” Gary V, who served as the musical director at the affair. On a touching note, actor and Viu Philippines' Garlic Garcia shared that Gary V played the same bridal march song he composed for Ella's mom, Maricel, at the wedding.
Celebrities and notable personalities
Celebrities, including sisters Julia and Claudia Barretto, and Ruffa Gutierrez were also present at the event. Joining them are Belo executive Cristalle Belo Pitt, former actress-media personality Stephanie Henares, and businessman Dong Ronquillo.
Also in attendance is veteran journalist-content creator Karen Davila.
Big names in the beauty and fashion industry were also spotted at the affair, including Ella's bridal gown designer Rajo Laurel, couple Dr. Vicki Belo-Kho and Dr. Hayden Kho, Vogue executive Rhoda Aldanese, and Nix Alañon.
Ella announced her engagement to Enrique in December. Before the big event, she held her Amalfi-inspired bridal shower attended by her family and friends, including her mom, Maricel, and sister, content creator Hannah Pangilinan.
She also had a dreamy Despedida de Soltera, where her loved ones sent their love messages and surprised Ella with fun-filled performances to celebrate her journey en route to married life.
