EXCLUSIVE: We Were There When Martine Cajucom Found The Wedding Dress Of Her Dreams!
The most awaited time has come! Martine Cajucom finally walks down the aisle today, and weds the love of her life, Cliff Ho in a beautiful Bali wedding!
Señora Rosa Clará with Martine back in March 2018
Just a couple of months back, Metro Weddings flew with Martine to Barcelona, Spain for the Rosa Clará 2019 show at Barcelona Fashion Week. And not just that, we went with her to pick out the white dress she gets to walk the aisle in! To say that this trip was full of emotions is an understatement. Witnessing a bride find THE dress is a big deal, but more on that later below.

The Metro Weddings June 2018 cover girl was chosen as the first Filipina Rosa Clará muse, thus getting the privilege of meeting Señora Rosa Clará herself when Señora visited Manila back in March—and even got to customize the gown with her at the HQ in Barcelona! Talk about living a bride's ultimate dream! Just the day before, at the Rosa Clará 2018 fashion show, a gown caught Martine's eye, the sexy, flowy one with the low V-neck and exquisite Spanish lace. Immediately, she knew she wanted to try that on.

While Martine was ecstatic about how the gown looked on her, she knew she still wanted to fulfill her dream of wearing a big ball gown inspired by every bride's princess fantasy. She just knew it would look stunning against the tranquil ambience of the Alila Villas in Uluwatu, Bali. It was then that team Rosa Clará opted to try to customize her gown by adding a huge tulle skirt on top of the first dress. And truly stunning it was:
