Magdalena & Saturnino - Golden Wedding Highlights

This video has been a long time coming, over 50 years in the making to be exact! Magdalena and Saturnino were first married in the Philippines on 20th December 1959, and renewed their marriage vows in Wellington exactly 50 years later on 20th December 2009.

It was extremely special to Magdalena and Saturnino to have their family included in all aspects of the day, from the bridal party to providing entertainment at the reception. The celebrations started with their renewal of vows at St Mary of The Angels Church. They were humbly awarded with a Papal Blessing from Pope Benedict XVI, and included a traditional Philippine Cord & Veil Ceremony.

Their reception was held at The Duxton Hotel and was full of many wonderful moments, exciting memories, interesting and heartfelt speeches and entertainment from each of the Grandchildren.

So how does a marriage last the test of time? Some advice I found particularly interesting which their daughter mentioned in her speech - "A successful marriage is like living in an earthquake zone area. If you find a fault, don't dwell on it."

We'd like to thank Magdalena and Saturnino for including us in their very special day, and wish them all the best for their future. Here is the highlights of their Golden Anniversary.
