Kyoto, Japan – Vhong Navarro and Tanya Winona Bautista started their journey to forever effective November 28, sealed with a kiss. The intimate wedding was graced by closest friends and family of the couple, who are both working under the umbrella of giant television network ABS-CBN. Included in the list of principal sponsors are celebrity doctor Victoria Belo, Kim Atienza, as well as directors Olivia Lamasan and Bobet Vidanes. The guest list was filled with the biggest celebrity stars such as Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff, Karylle and Yael Yuzon, Drew Arellano, Vice Ganda and Ion Perez, Angel Locsin and Neil Arce, Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia, Jhong Hilario, Ryan Bang, and John Lloyd Cruz. A live dance performance by Streetboys, lead by the groom himself, was witnessed by their guests. Tanya donned a blush pink gown with a long trail by famous fashion designer Michael Leyva. Her makeup was beautifully executed by professional makeup artist Winn Ramos. Vhong’s suit was from Mercedes Benz Stylo Asia’s Most Influential Designer, Avel Bacudio. The official photographer of the momentous occasion was Metro Photo while the videographer was Threelogy. The event venue is no other than the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in Kyoto, Japan.
It could be remembered in previous interviews and reports that Tanya Winona actually prefers a simple ceremony with their chosen closest friends and loved ones. However, the actor wishes to give the love of his life a beautiful and special wedding that would be cherished forever. Vhong shared photos of their prenuptial shoot with witty and loving captions, such as “She’ll often disagree, but at the end of it all, she will understand me” and “Mag kamukha daw tayo sabi ng iba, ikaw daw ang babaeng version ko sabi ng iba. Saan pa ba yun papunta? Iba ka!”
Despite being involved in a controversial scandal last 2014 with Deniece Cornejo and Cedric Lee, Tanya stood by Vhong and chose to not leave him. The forty two year old former Streetboys member and multitalented celebrity has two children: Bruno, his first born is aged twenty three; and twenty one year old Yce. Vhong married Bianca Lapus, mother of his second child, in 1998 and had their marriage annulled ten years later. He has also been in a relationship with Diana ZUbiri and Desiree del Valle. Meanwhile, Tanya is a writer in a couple of ABS-CBN television series such as prime time drama show “Halik”. She works in the Entertainment Production Department of the said television network.
