WEDDING BLISS

WOMAN. FILIPINA.

and perhaps
what made her beautiful
was not her appearance
or what she achieved,
but in her love
and in her courage,
and her audacity
to believe:
no matter
the darkness
around her,
light ran wild
within her,
and that was the way
she came alive,
and it showed up
in everything.

– Morgan Harper Nichols

Yes. This is technically a wedding dress. And no, I am not getting married. Far from it. The dresses are from the collection of my beloved friend USHI SATO who is a couturier currently based in Philippines, creating beautiful bridal dresses.

These dresses were sent over here in Dubai a few months ago for a photoshoot and before we send it back to him, he asked me to try them on and shoot them. I am obviously not superstitious so I didn’t mind trying it on – surprised that it actually fit me. Loved that it looked amazing as always with his work.

It was a quick shoot. Basically coz it wasn’t technically mine. The dresses were supposed to be worn and shot for the wedding portraits of my photographer Lovella who recently married. I just squeezed in 5 minutes to shoot a set of me wearing it so Ushi had some photographs for his own collection. Plus I obviously could not resist – a girl does dream of her wedding dress.
