Exquisite lace bridal gowns. Attractive floral arrangements. Decadent layered cakes. Bottles of refreshing wines. Trusted wedding photographers and videographers. Experienced makeup artists. These are just some of the elements and experts that Bayview Park Hotel Manila gathered at its recently concluded “Officially Yours Bridal Fair and Fashion Show.”
Held last June 28 to 30, the three-day event elevated Bayview Park as a top wedding venue for couples as they journey to forever. More importantly, it helped about-to-weds to hold their dream wedding at the hotel; while it offered business partners the chance to spread their product and service.
The highlight of Officially Yours was a fashion show featuring designer Paul Tenorio of Mikel Couture. Present to welcome the designer and the spectators were Bayview Park Hotel General Manager Eugene T. Yap.
Inspired by the themes of “Rustic Vintage,” Tenorio’s collection was modeled by beautiful Bayview Park employees. Elegantly, they walked down the runway wearing white bridal dresses with intricate lace accents and 3D floral appliqués. Silhouettes came in stunning ball gowns, sultry V neckline and sweetheart necklines, among others.
To complement the bride’s dresses, Tenorio also created gowns in muted pink for the entourage. He truly brought simplicity, elegance, and feminism to the Officially Yours fashion show. Tenorio has 10 years of experience in the bridal design business, and even more years of fashion design having grown up in a family of seamstresses. He finished fashion design at SLIMs School of Art and Fashion. His brand Mikel is the essence of couture bridal designs, which meshes traditional form with modern details.
Over at Bayview Park’s second floor, the entire space showcased booths offering cakes, hair and make-up, photo and video, and other essential services for wedding celebrations. Participating brands that exhibited their offerings included Focushot, AVMD, Flowers of May, Faces by Charisse, Mary Kay, Nariyani, D & D Cakes, Everything By Me, Raymond Maningat, Intra, Zen Institute, BBB Wines and of course, Mikel Couture. Easy Rock 96.3 served as the event partner. Special prizes from sponsors, exhibitors, and the hotel were also raffled to attending guests and couples. The grand winner took home a 3-days-2-nights stay at the Baguio Country Club for two.
At Bayview Park Hotel Manila, dream weddings do come true.
