Sneak Peek: Pre-nup at The Heirloom Manila

Our photographer Edu Cortez of Extreme Details emailed me some of our pre-nup pictures.   I'm very happy with the shots!   I wanted the vintagey look, I succeeded =)

Venue: The Heirloom Manila
Hair and Make-up : Marge Apacible

Sidekwento: My Mom made the fascinator the night before the shoot.   W@w sisses, that's the french net from Sis Lyn =)



Welcome to the photoshoot


Jose brought along his Lomos.   Jose said, this is not the way to hold this lomo camera.  I told him, hold it up just the same for pictorial purposes, forgot to remove the cover of the lens of the one I'm holding nga e...

Hope you enjoyed viewing the pictures as much as I did.

Special thanks to Edu, Tata and Victor (Extreme Details Photography) for the fun pictorial and the lovely pictures, the Heirloom for the picture savvy venue and Marge Apacible for giving me that vintagey look.

The Prenup Experience

We had our Pre-nup (Engagement) Shoot yesterday at The Heirloom and UP Diliman.   Our 3 photographers: Edu, Tata and Victor are so easy to work with.   They're so patient too!   Jose and I can't help but laugh everytime they ask us to pose with a serious face!   I never imagined it'll be hard for a camera whore like me!  

The Faceshop's Chief Make-Up Artist, Marge Apacible did my hair and make-up.  I like her, she's so nice and I appreciate that she asks what I want and makes suggestions too.  The make-up she used on me smelled so nice too =) Jose and I loved my make-up =)   The make-up still looked nice at around 10:30PM (considering I have oily face)!   Had to wash my face already to rest last night.   I'm guessing even after 12midnight the make-up will still be fine given a few oil blotter touches.  

Jaki and Jose (while waiting for the boys to set-up at UP), photo taken 5 hours after make-up was done.

For more information about Marge Apacible, please visit her site:

Promise, I'll post some of our pre-nup pictures as soon as I get them.

On applying for a Marriage License at Quezon City Hall...

Went to Quezon City Hall yesterday morning (it's already 1:53AM) with Jose to apply for a Marriage License.   Took us almost 2 hours to file the application, could have done it in an a little over an hour if we came with all the required documents and if the instructions were more precise. In fairness to the City Hall employees (guards included), they we're all very helpful and accommodating.

Requirements for the application of Marriage License in Quezon City Hall (Window 10):

1. One of the applicants must be a resident of QC
2. Certified (NSO) True Copy of Birth Certificate, CENOMAR
3. Community Tax Certificate / Cedula (--> took us 15minutes to get this)
4. Colored or black and white ID pic of both applicants (-->submitted 1x1 colored ID pics)
5. Certificate of Family Planning (--->took us another 15minutes, walk included to get a schedule for the Seminar at the 2nd Floor of the Health Bldg. We'll be attending the seminar in 2 weeks time and the marriage License will be available the day after.)

Application Form:  Php50.00
Marriage License Application Fee: Php100.00
Marriage License : Php100.00

Note: Bring lose change for photocopying.

If you're saving up on leaves, only one of the couple can file the application and schedule the Family Planning Seminar, just make sure all the documents are complete.
