Its the very 1st time that the Buhay na Kasaysayan (BNK) group were invited for a wedding to do reenactment June 17 Its a Chinese Wedding. The family wished that the motif will be period era attire, but its too late, they came up with the idea very late. Thus only us, the reenactors were the only one in period uniform, not anymore the guest & groom & bride.
The groom & bride is a relative & good friends of Jojo Dy also member of the BNK & Phil. Scout Living History reenactors.
We did an honor guard only at the reception. Assisting / marching with the groom & bride from the room of the hotel where they stay to the dining area.
Its very funny that we have at least a total of 5 languages inside the hotel.
1. Filipino 2. Chinese 3. English 4. Bicolano 5. Spanish
The Host speaks Chinese & interpret it in English. While the guest used to talk a combination of Filipino & Chinese language. Then the MC also speaked the Bicolano language (its not a dialec, but a language) because they are Chinese based from Bicol. Lastly, since we are reenacting the Phil. Revolution, I commanded the guards using Spanish commands as used by the Filipino Revolutionaries during 1896-1902.
We did not expect that they shall be giving us a honorarium worth to make us very happy. Would like to share you some photos shown below.
When my office mate knew this, they also plan to invite us to do honor guards & do the same on the wedding of his brother late this year.
I also attended this wedding, its is some thing different,actually it has 6 languages Mandarin and Fukien (its like Tagalog and Bicol), First i thought the guest wouldn't mind much, but heard lots of positive comments like if they would be Wed again they will like a similar one, a typical Chinese businessman even told me the it can be profitable to cater on occasions like this, so Perry get your calling card ready he he.....
i remember one of my high school friend in which i was a cord sponsor, they are all dress us in period the bride in Saya and the groom in Andress Bonifaio style with "BOLO" attach on his waist.....i think the bride has no choice but to say I DO he he.
