THE BRIDE

Heidi’s pas­sions are her pro­fes­sions. She isa lover of fash­ion, Cherryl owns and man­ages a bou­tique in Marik­ina City, which of­fers stylish gar­ments, beauty prod­ucts, and ac­ces­sories for men, women, and chil­dren. She shares her panache for fash­ion as she helps style her clients so they may find the en­sem­bles that per­fectly suit them.

And when it comes to beauty, Cherryl prefers to keep it au na­turel. Her daily look com­prises of well-groomed eye­brows, clear face, a lit­tle blush on the cheeks, and lip color. She also makes sure that her skin is hy­drated by a mois­tur­iz­ing skin care rou­tine at night.

THE LOVE STORY

Cherryl is a sin­gle mom and ac­cord­ing to her, she was happy the way life was with just her and her son.

“I told my­self that I would not fall for some­one again. I told my­self I had enough of love and ro­mance and I would just fo­cus on pro­vid­ing for my­self and my fam­ily,” says Cherryl.

How­ever, life had a de­light­ful sur­prise for Cherryl. When she was work­ing at AP Moller Maersk, she met Patrick—the man who would even­tu­ally win her heart and make her be­lieve in love again.

“I was hes­i­tant at first, but he showed me ut­most sin­cer­ity. We shared a lot of com­mon in­ter­ests such as bik­ing, strolling, and go­ing on gas­tro­nomic ad­ven­tures. He treats me like a queen and he makes me feel loved and cared for. He tends to spoil me... a lot,” shares Cherryl.

What she loved most about Patrick is that he ac­cepts her for who she is and he makes ef­forts to build a good re­la­tion­ship with her son. Her cir­cle of love also grew as Patrick’s fam­ily wel­comed her and her son, to­gether with the rest of her fam­ily.

THE LOOK

For her wed­ding, Cherryl shares that she just wants to look nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful. “I just want a sim­ple yet el­e­gant look. I want ev­ery­one to see my cheeks go pink gen­uinely and not be­cause of too much make-up.”

An­ton Patdu cre­ated a stun­ning look for Cherryl with his sig­na­ture style: clear skin and bright beau­ti­ful eyes. He chose to ac­cen­tu­ate her eyes be­cause as it is the win­dow to the soul, it shows the hap­pi­ness of the bride on her wed­ding day.

“She is al­ready beau­ti­ful and I don’t want to change the face of my brides. I want the bride to look a bet­ter ver­sion of them­selves on their wed­ding day,” shares An­ton.

To com­ple­ment her make-up, her hair was raised in a loose bun that spells el­e­gance.

“I’m head over heels in love with it. It is so close to how I imag­ined I would look on my spe­cial day. I loved how sim­ple and straight­for­ward it is yet so clas­si­cally el­e­gant. I’d say I look glam­orous and I hope I look ex­actly like that on my wed­ding day,” says Cherryl.
