A blushing bride looking even more divine in white, Martine Cajucom stood glowing under the afternoon Bali light and said ‘I do’ to the love of her life—her groom, Cliff Ho—in a stunning Rosa Clara 2019 MED creation.
Looking every bit ethereal for her big day, Martine chose a sleeveless silk muslin gown with lace trimmings adorning both the waist and deep V neckline. The dress, which took a whopping 125 hours to make, is the famed Spanish designer’s take on a “modern, romantic, whimsical Greek Goddess look,” as described by Valerie Zayco, Managing Partner to Rosa Clara Philippines.
"The straps are also made of pretty bows that go down the length of the gown for the extra drama," Valerie adds.
As a finishing touch to her bridal look, Martine accessorized her Rosa Clara gown with flower-shaped earrings by local jeweler Jj Jiao.
Below, an exclusive look at what went down during Martine's bridal gown fitting:
We especially loved the quick and sexy transformation removing the voluminous addition allowed for the bride’s reception. Now visible, the slit running across her thigh slightly opens to the layer of lace beneath the silk muslin fabric “for a little sexy peek-a-boo while still being covered up.”
A 40-meter silk tulle overskirt was added to the original MED dress for the wedding ceremony, granting Martine's wish for a cloud-like bridal look.
After her pretty-in-pink Marchesa number at the welcome dinner and her goddess-worthy tulle wedding gown from Rosa Clara, Martine changed into her third look for the reception—and this time around, she opted for a custom Dana Harel. The embellished dress Martine wore is almost identical to a piece from the Israeli designer's 2017 Secret Garden collection, but with a lowered V neckline. To complete the look, the bride accessorized her 'do with a princessy Jennifer Behr tiara.
In case you've noticed, Martine seems to favor the deep V neckline. She was seen donning different dresses with the same neckline during her first meeting with Sra. Rosa Clara and at Barcelona Fashion Week.
