5 Things We Loved About Jess Wilson and Moritz Gastl's Wedding
Sunnies co-founder Jess Wilson married Moritz Gastl on June 26, 2021 in Coron, Palawan. The couple held their civil ceremony by the shore, styled by Gideon Hermosa who covered the aisle in pure gypsophilia. However we see from Nelwin Uy’s photos that their big day was an extravaganza, starting with a sunset cruise on June 25, Friday. Here's what we at Inspirations.ph loved about this wedding!
1. It was a four-day affair!
Pulling off a wedding that lasts for a few hours is quite the feat these days, given the pandemic, so to see that a four-day wedding weekend is possible? So much happy vibes! We feel that this kind of celebration is going to be a realistic option for couples these days especially because intimate weddings is now the norm. The Gastls wedding weekend was from June 25 to 28, 2021. Such affairs will also be an option for couple who will be throwing a…
2. Destination wedding
Oh how we missed seeing destination weddings! Sure the beach weddings did not stop for couples who had access to the shore, nor did the mountainside for those who reside near ranges. But for most couples, the city and gardens in the city seemed like the only option for the past year. Jess and Moritz were married at the Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort. (Here's what the resort looks like from an engagement shoot point of view!)
Perhaps it is also everyone’s collective wanderlust that has made a destination wedding all the more special these days. Now that packing your bags and going anywhere is a lot more complicated, it is only logical to extend the festivities if you are hosting a destination wedding. First, everyone is itching to getaway. Second, you already bothered with all the safety protocls and precautions, you may as well make the most of it! Guests who agree to be part of your wedding will surely enjoy a quick vacay.
3. The Filipiniana elements
The bride wore a terno with a detachable column skirt designed by Vania Romoff while the groom wore a barong. We spotted a few other Filipino-inspired details married with some British touches, a great homage to the couples’ families.
4. Celebrity baby entourage
Of course to us they are the children of celebrities, but to the bride and groom they are family. We loved seeing photos and video footage of Dahlia Amelie Heussaff, Thylane Bolzico, and her nephews and niece, Archie, Alfie, and Charlotte Burnand. It was also cute to see the erstwhile stylish brides and grooms, whose weddings continue to inspire couples today, become doting parents trying their best to capture their little ones walk down the aisle.
5. They let love win!
Jess Wilson reveals in one of her first Instagram posts about their wedding that like most couples, they also had to reschedule their weddings–twice! She writes:
“after 2 delayed weddings, a pandemic and a few new family babies born in between, what felt like forever away when planning has now crept up on us out of nowhere and and it’s finally our turn to get married @ritzo
we planned this earlier in the year with the help of some of the best people in the industry (@eventsbyamandatirol!!) and decided to do our civil wedding together with a small group of loved ones in Palawan
so excited to finally be able to see this day come.
missing our family and friends that can’t make it today, we’ll see you in Salzburg for #thegastls part 2 next year.”
We can’t wait to see that wedding!
