On a fine summer day, about 8 years ago, I married the love of my life. The years had gone by so quickly but I can still remember all the DIY details thinking how I could incorporate our personalities as a couple for the big day. I wanted a bespoke wedding, something that was simple and really indicative of me and my husband-to-be.

Nowadays, a bespoke wedding is easy to come by. There are more venues and stylists that are ready to turn your wedding day into your very own fairy tale. 

With our anniversary just a week away and being able to attend the beautiful media launch of Makati Shangri-La's Vows of Elegance, I am itching to plan my own renewal of vows for our 10-year anniversary! I don't know if that's completely practical but it's definitely an idea I keep going back to! Let's see if the husband approves.
