WATCH: Jennylyn and Dennis share preview of civil marriage
Newlyweds Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo shared parts of their intimate civil wedding with their fans via a vlog posted on Saturday.
In the 8-minute clip, Mercado and Trillo spoke about how stressful the wedding day started despite the simple ceremony.
“Medyo stress kami ng araw na ‘yun,” Trillo said.
The couple said heavy rains slowed their trip to the location on November 15 on Monday; they arrived an hour later than expected.
The celebrity couple apologized to their guests, including the lawyer who facilitated their wedding.
In a funny story, Trillo brought the wrong ring box to the ceremony, adding to the stress.
Nonetheless, Mercado and Trillo expressed their gratitude to everyone who helped bring the marriage to life, including Kapamilya star Kathryn Bernardo. The couple used the actress’ owned TGIS Studio as their wedding venue.
The video was filled with moments of tears, especially among family members on both sides.
After being in a relationship for 7 years, a new chapter has begun for Mercado and Trillo as they finally got married, they revealed through Instagram posts on Saturday.
Mercado and Trillo shared a few snaps from their intimate wedding, where the actress wore a Vania Romoff wedding suit while the actor looked dapper in his white Edwin Tan suit.
The long-awaited wedding was reported last week after a photo of them in matching wedding suits, apparently taken at a ceremony, circulated on social media.
Congratulatory messages also flooded Mercado’s verified Facebook page, which appears to have posted the photo on Monday evening before it was deleted an hour later.
Last month, the longtime partners announced their engagement and revealed that they are expecting their first child together.
The two have children from their respective past relationships.
Mercado, 34, has a son Alex Jazz with ex-boyfriend Patrick Garcia, while Trillo, 40, also has a son Calix Andreas from a previous relationship.
In a previous interview, the couple said they decided to give their relationship another chance after their split in 2011. The two reunited in 2014 and are set to mark their 8th anniversary as a couple in January next year.
