MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – After finally tying the knot in a civil ceremony in June, longtime couple Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho had what is perhaps the grandest celebrity wedding of the year in Paris on September 2.
No less than Philippine showbiz royalty were in attendance – the bride, after all, is the go-to dermatologist for the stars.
Among the glittering guests were Tim Yap, Alden Richards, Piolo Pascual, Jinkee Pacquiao, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Lovi Poe, Richard Gomez, Lucy Torres-Gomez, Georgina Wilson, her husband Arthur Burnand, their son Archie, as well as Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, and their daughter Zia, who served as flower girl alongside the bridal couple’s daughter, Scarlet Snow.
Cristalle Belo-Pitt and Quark Henares, Vicki’s two older childre with her first husband Atom Henares, were also at the wedding.
For the ceremony, the bride glowed in a blush pink gown by top designer Michael Cinco, who also designed the flower girl dress of Scarlet Snow.
The groom looked dapper in a simple black suit and a bowtie.
The dress Vicki wore to the ceremony was only one of the 4 dresses that the designer custom-made for her for the wedding.
The reception was held at the historic Opéra Garnier, the Paris opera house that inspired the classic novel, Phantom of the Opera.
A red carpet was rolled out for the guests.
The bride and groom changed into different outfits for the reception. Hayden wore a white suit jacket, while Vicki wore a glittering cream colored dress.
The couple had their first dance on the steps of the Opera house, to which the bride wore another dress, a light blue tea length number.
The couple have been together since 2005. Their relationship has weathered many storms, most notably a sex tape scandal involving Hayden and several actresses in 2009 that led to the loss of his medical license. It was reinstated in 2014. – Rappler.com
