The couple met back in 2012, and it didn’t take long for them to find out how inseparable they were from each other. Fast forward to 2017, Justin Tee (an award-winning chef), hired a photographer to follow them on their holiday in London, and proposed to Fritzie Cabial right in front of the magnificent Big Ben, overlooking the Parliament Square. It’s no wonder why this artistic & history-loving couple would choose to have a regal wedding.
Simple yet endearing traits are what they love about each other. For Fritzie, it’s Justin’s honesty and his pure heart that made her say “Yes!” in a heartbeat. For Justin, he fell in love with her selflessness and her love for everyone, sometimes even putting others’ welfare before her own.
A Piece Of Advice
When asked if there is one piece of advice they could give future couples who are planning their wedding, Fritzie says “Enjoy every minute of it”. She doesn’t discount the fact that there will definitely be quarrels or disagreements over little details, but what matters most should be your love for each other. So forgive, and be humble! Justin thinks it’s important to check the past work of your suppliers, to make sure they can deliver what they have promised through their portfolio.
The gorgeous bride wore Zuhair Murad on the wedding day, looking like a dream!
The couple picked The Peninsula, Manila as their wedding venue and it wasn’t easy preparing such an elaborate wedding. However, the pictures prove all efforts were worth it! It’s so beautiful and intricate, we think it’s fit for royalty. They chose a regal theme as they thought it was a perfect reflection of their personality as a couple. No, not because they wanted a lavish lifestyle that of kings and queens, but because they appreciate and understand the sophistication & elegance, being history-lovers. They also wanted something timeless and classy that would look good 15 years from now ( and we think it will!).
Their Favourite Moments
One day before the wedding, Justin decided to pay his respects to his late mother. To him, it was the most memorable thing about this marriage. It was his way of making her part of the wedding. He got really emotional but he felt that his mother was giving them her blessings to marry the woman he loves.
Walking down the aisle is Bride Fritzie’s favourite moment from the wedding. Before the door opened, she was so nervous that her hands were literally shaking. It was then, replaced with bliss when all she could see was Justin waiting at the altar for her. It was undoubtedly the most special walk in her entire existence. Tears were everywhere.
Congratulations to this lovely couple, Fritzie & Justin!
