Vicki and Hayden celebrated their union with an extravagant wedding in Paris, France.
Celebrity doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho’s nuptials will definitely go down in history as one of the most memorable weddings in Philippine show business.
Aside from the couple’s colorful love story, not to mention Vicki and Hayden’s 24-year age gap, the two celebrated their union with an extravagant wedding in Paris, France over the weekend.
On Sunday, September 3, the two exchanged vows at The American Church in Paris.
Vicki wore a meticulously made Michael Cinco gown. “The 3-meter long train blush wedding gown is made of French lace and tulle with full silk embroidery on top in baroque patterns with sequins, pearls and transparent and Rose Opal Swarovski crystals... And it took 1000 hours to finish with 50 skilled artisans,” the acclaimed fashion designer shared on his Instagram page.
A lavish reception then followed at the grand opera house, Palais Garnier – the inspiration for the musical play Phantom of the Opera. Michael, who was present at the venue, said that the venue closed for two days just for this event.
An estimated 250 people, including Filipino celebrities, attended the said event. They were Piolo Pascual, Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes with their baby Zia, Jodi Sta. Maria, Jinkee Pacquiao, Korina Sanchez, Tim Yap, Rhian Ramos, Tessa Prieto-Valdez, Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez with their son Nate, Isabelle Daza, Georgina Wilson, Lovi Poe, Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez with their daughter Juliana, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Alden Richards, Pops Fernandez, Dyan Castillejo, Derek Ramsey, Jennylyn Mercado, Dennis Trillo, Georcelle Dapat-Sy, Kim Atienza, Marjorie Barretto, Ben Chan, Bryan Boy, Grace Lee and Lolit Solis, among others.
These guests were also at their best. As such, cousins Georgina, Isabelle and Jess Wilson wore wedding gowns.
Aside from opera singers, Ogie and Regine also serenaded the couple.
Of course, Vicki’s children Cristalle Belo and Quark Henares were also present, as well as their online superstar sister Scarlet Snow.
The guests obviously enjoyed the delightful dishes served at the reception.
To make their first dance as a married couple extra special, Vicki and Hayden danced to their own recording of Jekyll and Hyde’s Take Me As I Am.
Throughout the night, the newlyweds, together with their guests, enjoyed dancing to the music played by a live band.
The night prior to the wedding and reception, Vicki and Hayden hosted a river-cruise dinner rehearsal for their guests, on board the Pavillon Seine, where people could enjoy a good view of the famed Eiffel Tower.
Sometime during their weeklong stay abroad, Vicki also gave a tour of their equally luxurious hotel room on Instagram – the historical room of French fashion mogul Coco Chanel at the 5-star hotel Ritz Paris. According to their website, a one-night stay in Coco Chanel’s room costs at least 18,000 EUR or an estimated 1.1 million PHP.
Meanwhile, photos and video clips of their creative invitations were also posted online.
A few days before the wedding, Vicki gave her Instagram followers a closer look at her engagement ring, which was made by Graff Diamonds, a London-based luxury jeweler.
