Thousands in the Philippines fled as far as they could from the Taal volcano eruption on Sunday (Jan 12), but one couple did not let it int-errupt them from getting married.
Filipino couple Chino Vaflor and Kat Bautista Palomar had already booked the Savanna Farm by Solange in the town of Alfonso, Cavite, which is a mere 16km from the active volcano.
It was about 2pm when photographer Randolf Evan was taking photos of the wedding preparation that they started noticing unusual activity from the Taal volcano, Channel NewsAsia reported.
But that didn’t deter them from carrying on with the ceremony, amidst white smoke and ash spews. The wedding team kept constant monitoring of the volcanic activity via social media and discussed the measures to take in a worst-case scenario.
