AWARD-winning director Louie Ignacio has revealed that he will design the wedding veil of comedienne Ai-Ai delas Alas who is scheduled to marry her non-showbiz partner Gerald Sibayan on December 12.
“Ako ang mag-pe paint ng floral design sa wedding veil nya. Si Frederick Peralta ang designer ng wedding gown nya,” said Ignacio during an interview for BG Showbiz Plus Magazine at the Marco Polo Hotel in Pasig City recently.
“Gusto n’ya masaya kaya magiging makulay ang veil nya,” said Ignacio. Siguro magche-check in ako nun sa hotel for several days at doon ako mag pe-paint ng veil nya. Baka mga four days na direcho ‘yun.”
Ignacio also said that he designed the wedding invitation of the future couple.
“Tapos na ang wedding invitation at ako ang gumawa. Nasa kanila na ‘yung invite. For reproduction n’ya. Ang concept is petals and flowers.
“For the love ‘yun! Walang bayad ‘yun. Sinisingil nga nya ako pero sabi ko walang bayad ‘yun,” the award-winning director of “Area” said.
PEP said that that megastar Sharon Cuneta will be the matron of honor while Marian Rivera is the couple’s veil sponsor.
Rivera has reportedly offered to pay for the gown of the comedienne as her wedding gift to her.
Ignacio has been into painting all his life. In fact, he confessed that one of his early paychecks went to art materials. He has done eight solo art shows, the recent one in February. On October 12, Ignacio will participate in the art show dubbed “Manila Art.”
Both Delas Alas and Ignacio worked together in the critically-acclaimed movie “Area” produced by Queen of indie films Baby Go.
Delas Alas and Ignacio currently team-up on the weekly variety program “Sunday Pinasaya” on GMA 7. Ignacio directs the noontime show.
