Nikki Gil is officially a married woman! Last Saturday, the singer-actress has finally said ‘I do’ to her non-showbiz boyfriend BJ Albert in a romantic garden wedding in Laguna. It was truly an enchanting evening celebrated with their family and close friends.
In case you missed it, no worries—we have all the juicy details below.
Although both graduated from Ateneo de Manila University, BJ and Nikki were never formally introduced until their friends set them up on a blind date. They’ve dated for over a year before officially announcing their engagement last February.
The Prenup Video
Released hours after the wedding, the official prenup video directed by wedding videographer Jason Magbanua shows the couple sharing a laugh or two while enjoying quiet moments together. While the clip is being played, you can hear excerpts from Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII being read.
The Wedding Vows
If that alone brought you on the brink of tears, wait ‘til you hear Nikki’s wedding vows. Thankfully, a guest captured the tear-jerking moment on film!
“You have quickly become my everything, and I am sometimes left wondering: how I could have possibly done without you all those years? There are days when I wish I’d known you earlier but I know that God makes all things beautiful in His time.”
The lovely bridesmaids were all clad in blush pink frocks by designer Celine Bautista.
Each of them also received an embellished bow bracelet as a special present from the bride—and look, they’re all matchy-matchy!
The Matron of Honor
The matron of honor was no other than her best friend, Iya Villania. Of course, not that we’re surprised!
The Wedding Dress
The bride walked down the aisle wearing an intricately beaded Elie Saab gown.

The Wedding Cake
Masterfully created by Joyce Urieta, the couple’s four-layer wedding cake is a sweet and slighty fruity flavored Vanilla Berry Melange.
Held at the Sta. Elena and Golf Country Club in Laguna, Nikki and BJ’s garden wedding was made more beautiful by event stylist Zenas Pineda.
Garlands can be found hanging from the tent's ceiling.
