Many people don't think that civil weddings could have that romantic vibe, especially when it's done in City Hall. What I realized shooting at Manila City Hall is that the place has beautiful Roman architecture which sets the backdrop for couple photos. Inside the Mayor's office, they have a ceremonial room with gorgeous lighting - makes sense because this is where the press conferences are held. I hadn't thought of that coming into the shoot.
The wedding of Julius + Betina was made extra memorable because the Mayor of Manila himself, Isko Moreno Domagoso came to officiate the union. It definitely added to the story of how memorable this day was for the couple.
