Real Weddings: Willian and Cherrylyn

Real Weddings: Willian and Cherrylyn

Willian and Cherrylyn’s love story began during their MBA course in DLSU. They were  group mates when they started becoming closer to each other. Willian shares that the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes that Che is the girl for him. He took active steps to pursue her.


Che is extremely career oriented and having a relationship was far from her mind. But with Willian’s persistence, she finally realized that Willian is God’s gift to her.



Willian and Che are so opposite but that’s why they are a perfect tandem. Before Che left the Philippines in 2011 to accept a job offer in UK, Willian invited Che for a private dinner in their favorite restaurant. After the meal, he gave Che a gold heart bracelet as a promise of an ever after. This was Willian’s first proposal. Willian admits, “I honestly couldn’t imagine my life without her and being away from her is unbearable.”


Six months later, Willian travelled to the UK to formally propose to Che. This was his second proposal. During his visit, he decided to take Che to the London Eye. As the capsule reached the highest point of the rotation, overlooking the River Thames and with Big Ben in the background, Willian popped the question, “Will you marry me?” just as the sun was setting over the city centre.


I only met Willian and Che once before the wedding. Our preparation was done through emails because she was based in UK. But despite that, our friendship blossomed because of our mutual love for flowers. She would send me photos of flowers from UK. Peonies, dusty miller and all sorts of flowers just growing along the streets. No wonder she was confused with which flowers she wanted for her bridal bouquet! But nonetheless, it was a joy working with them.

Every time I see photos of Willian and Che’s wedding, they never fail to bring a smile to my face. The couple now resides in the UK. I get to  follow their adventures and I pray that they would continue to have more! My prayer is that their adjustment would go smooth as they transition to a new chapter in their lives. 🙂
