Judy and Ryan tie the knot

05/03/2009 12:28 AM | Vincent Anthony Garcia

After keeping details of their wedding under wraps, celebrity couple Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo traded "I dos" last Thursday.

The couple had wanted their special day to be a private affair, and they succeeded in keeping the public and the media in the dark about the much-anticipated event.

Some of the guests were informed of the location on the day of the wedding, with the invitation coming with a little surprise package - a pair of slippers, the use of which only became apparent much later when the venue of the wedding reception was announced: a picturesque restaurant in Balai-Anilao, a popular upscale diving resort south of Manila. Others had a three-day head start, but the invitation had only the slightest of clues - not even the names of the couple were mentioned. The invitation only contained the initials J&R.

Juday, as the teen superstar is often called, wore an elegant flowing off-white gown designed by Paul Cabral. The sleeveless, three-layered tulle gown had a racer-back cut over Mikado silk. Each layer of tulle was splayed with appliqués that formed a flower pattern.

Ryan wore a gray wool suit by Jerome Lorico.

Agot Isidro sang an version of The Corrs' Runaway, whereafter Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez gave a solemn and powerful rendition of The Prayer. The megastar Sharon Cuneta was the bridesmaid.

According to sources, the wedding was over in 45 minutes, at the end of which Agoncillo kissed Juday for 17 seconds, both hugging for another half a minute to the cheers of over 100 guests in the church. Other friends and colleagues, who were not invited to the wedding, met the newlyweds at a special reception held later.

Madrigal's magic

Ehra Madrigal is in heaven these days. Who wouldn't be? The young, sexy siren has just been chosen to play the lead role in the TV remake of the film classic Ang Pinakamagandang Hayop sa Balat ng Lupa (The Most Beautiful Animal on the Face of the Earth) by noted director Celso Ad Castillo. Former Miss Universe Gloria Diaz played the title role in the '70s. Another beauty queen, Miss World First Princess Ruffa Gutierrez, then reprised the role two decades later in the film of the same title. Now, it's Madrigal's turn, and she is delighted. "This is a fantastic opportunity. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of comparisons with Gloria and Ruffa, but I wish people would just give me this chance to prove myself as an actress," she said. Madrigal's magic

Hollywood bound

Award-winning actor Cesar Montano recently made known his intention to run for governor of Bohol, a province south of Manila. In a press conference, Montano revealed that he is trying to act in a few Hollywood movies this year. His first Hollywood break came in 2005 when he appeared as a supporting actor in The Great Raid, a film based on real events that transpired during the Second World War, directed by John Dahl. Now, Montano wants to produce a film based on an ancient writing system in the Philippines. And guess who he wants in the lead role? Manny Pacquiao. Montano also revealed that he has been longing to do a film with the legendary actress Nora Aunor since he was was nine years old, and now is the time to fulfill that dream.

Kris lost her charm?

Kris Aquino's new game show is no match for Ogie Alcasid and Michael V's new TV gig, Hole in the Wall. Ogie and Michael host their latest programme as Angelina and YaYa, the characters they popularised in the hit gag show Bubble Gang. Aquino has not hosted a game show in a while. Her new bingo show was launched without much fanfare, and has been lacklustre at the ratings. She should seriously start thinking about reinventing herself, as many people have observed that Aquino has lately been a lot tamer, though adorably tolerable, host. But perhaps her being so goody-goody on TV may have compromised her appeal. Perhaps she can reconsider bringing her erstwhile "sting" back?
