There were several celebrities included in the newlyweds’ entourage.

Exactly a year after Hidilyn Diaz bagged the Philippines’ first-ever gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, she celebrated another milestone. On July 26, the Olympic champion married her strength coach and longtime beau, Julius Naranjo, at the St. Ignatius Church in Baguio City.

Aside from Hidilyn’s breathtaking gown by renowned Filipino designer Francis Libiran and her one-of-a-kind bouquet reminiscent of the weights she’s known to lift, her wedding is exquisite in more ways than one. A few weeks before the much-anticipated nuptials, Hidilyn’s manager Noel Ferrer shared the couple’s wedding entourage—and it's noticeably star-studded.

Joining the list are former vice president Leni Robredo, former senator Manny Pacquiao, celebrity dermatologist Dr. Vicki Belo, journalist Atom Araullo, and veteran actresses Judy Anne Santos-Agoncillo, Angel Locsin-Arce, and Iza Calzado-Wintle.

“We want the people present in our wedding to be those who will serve as our inspirations as we go through our marriage,” the bride explained on a digital talk show hosted by her manager. “These are our life pegs, people we hope to be able to consult if ever Julius and I encounter problems as a married couple.”

Even though Angat Buhay NGO Chairperson Leni Robredo wasn’t able to attend the Olympic champ’s wedding, she also left an inspiring message for the couple.

“Hi Julius and Hidilyn, I am so honored to be your ninang sa wedding ninyo,” she says in a video posted on Hidilyn’s Instagram account. “Wala akong ibang hahangarin sa inyong dalawa bilang one of your godmothers, but a long and happy and peaceful married life.”
