28-30 JULY 2006
1st Philippine Wedding Congress
Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall
Project of Visions and Ideas

Honestly, I don't know how this would be any different from the dime-a-dozen fairs happening around Manila during the entire year but yet, we're willing to give it a try and see how we'd fare in this - wow - 1st Philippine Wedding Congress. The name of the event just gives me the creeps.

At any rate, we're working on something Turkish for the booth, just so to show that The Mango Farm can be transformed into anything you wish it to be.


10-11 JUNE 2006
Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall

Vatel Manila will be at the Perfect Beginnings this June! This will be our first project for this 3-years-old bridal fair. I am sure we will be encountering old friends again (the same companies seem to crop up all the time in many fairs) and meeting new suppliers.

We will be working around a Mediterannean look this time for the booth. Something that has a nice, loungey feel to it. Let's see.


February 17-19
Weddings and Debuts 2006
Megatrade Hall, SM Megamall
Project of The Wedding Library

Once again, we were seen at Megatrade Hall at SM Megamall with our booth for The Mango Farm. This year, the order being something Filipino, we came up with an idea of using an all-capiz ensemble to surround our 2X3-meters booth. The rest of the ideas like the banig-wrapped, multi-layered platform came from Mike Santos of the Farm.

Vatel Manila wishes to thank Ate Letty Yanga of Quiapo's famous Ils de Tules (ilalim ng tulay, for those not in the know) for discounts and speedy delivery on the capiz curtains. Henry, as well, for taking time to make the long walks to and from Quiapo. Tony of the Farm for the amazing (and erstwhile secret) artistry. To SB, for always being so supportive of my work. And to Mike, for the chance to make these ideas come to life!(Why is this sounding like a thank-you speech for the Oscars?!)

Here's to more booths for the Farm!
