Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera tied the knot just before 2014 blew its final breath.
The tandem of Dingdong and Marian has been brangelinalised into their very own DongYan moniker! 🙂
The wedding was lavish, to say the least, fit for a king and queen of prime time television in the Philippines, where 100 million, and counting, viewers are regularly glued to various teleserye (television drama series) where this couple reigns supreme.
Marian Rivera wore an impossibly gorgeous wedding gown by an up and coming Dubai-based Filipino fashion designer, Michael Cinco, who designs clothes for the moneyed Hollywood celebrities.
The wedding was the talk of the town as well as the cyberworld for its mega extravaganza and unbelievable extravagance.
The wedding was attended by PNoy himself – the incumbent president of the Philippines. One thing to take into consideration is that, PNoy is apparently a very, very busy man. Afterall he is THE numero uno servant of more than 100 million Filipinos, who are in varying degrees of wealth and much poverty. PNoy was so busy dealing with ways in how to make more money for the country, for thieves in the government to make merry with. LOL.
But the DongYan matrimonial jubilation was not something to be missed. They are a powerful couple, very influential. Holding onto their coat tails can only be for the better. Anyway, PNoy knows this and knows where his priorities lie and therefore, despite his busy schedule he had to attend and be one of the shiny, happy people partaking the generosity of the couple and their sponsors.
As we can now know a few weeks later, PNoy went back to being really busy again that he cannot attend the arrival/repatriation of the bodies of 42 slained policemen, who valiantly fought the insurgents in Mindanao. PNoy was much too busy instead celebrating the opening of a new plant of Mitsubishi, somewhere in Laguna.
King & Queen of Philippine Prime Time TV
The DongYan wedding may have created a world record for the hugest, biggest wedding cake in the world, ever. The cake stood at 12 feet tall, certainly enough to sweeten the palates of the thousands of wedding attendees.
After the wedding DongYan enjoyed a romantic European honeymoon.
But even kings and queens have to surface and join the hoi polloi in the real world sometimes. And yes, Dingdong and Marian are back to doing what they do best – teleserye!
Dingdong has just started the GMA drama series called Pari ‘Koy (Priest Koy), where he will be playing a Catholic priest (ideally a celibate priest 😉 lol) And wait for this, Marian is doing The Rich Man’s daughter, and by early account, sweet, fragrant Marian will be entering the world of lesbianism. hehehe
celibacy and lesbianism for the newly married king and queen of Philippine prime time tv?!!! Good choices or more Freudian in nature?!!!
