Matteo Guidicelli has made his first social media post since reports of his and Sarah Geronimo's wedding hit the internet last week. He shared a photo of them sharing a toast presumably after their civil nuptials, confirming that they have indeed tied the knot.
According to the post, the pair wed last February 20 in an intimate gathering. "A day full of pure love, honesty and genuine emotions," the groom writes. "Yes, we got married. Mr and Mrs. Guidicelli."
"First and foremost, [we] would like to express the overwhelming joy, love and excitement we have in beginning our life together. We decided to keep everything as intimate as possible because of private matters."
The actor went on to thank everyone who supported him and Sarah's journey to being husband and wife. "Each and everyone of you have been part of our love journey and we want to say, Thank you. Friends, family and everyone on 'social media' have been a source of inspiration, strength, and most importantly, of LOVE."
"I would like to say thank you to my family for loving Sarah like a daughter. Our family is growing and we are blessed. Papa and mama, thank you for deeply loving and welcoming Sarah into our family."
Matteo also addressed the rumors of an altercation occuring during the occasion. "That evening was almost perfect until some unexpected events took place, but don't worry I never 'punched' anyone," he says. "I will forever stand up and protect my wife just as how my father would protect my whole family."
"In time, with God's grace and love, everything will heal and fall into place. We are happy, we are blessed, and we are husband and wife! Let's always celebrate life and love! Nothing will ever defeat pure honest LOVE. God bless everyone for your love and support!"
More details of the wedding have yet to be released by the couple, but a post from ABS-CBN reporter Dyan Castillejo's Instagram did give us a sneak peek of what appears to be Sarah's reception look. In the shot, the bride dons a white mock neck with sheer sleeves and columns of gold sequins at each shoulder.
We can't wait to see more photos! Congratulations, Sarah and Matteo!
