Year 2016 was a big one for celebrity destination weddings.

Let's take a look back at their memorable wedding celebrations:
Georgina Wilson and Arthur Burnand

In December 2016, months after the wedding, Georgina and Arthur welcomed their first son Archie.
In July 2019, the couple had their second son, Alfie.
Solenn Heussaff and Nico Bolzico
A few weeks after Georgina and Arthur's nuptial, Solenn and Nico took their turn at the altar.
The couple got married on May 21, 2016 at the Eglise Notre-Dame De Combourg in Brittany, France.
To fully capture the French countryside, Solenn and Nico booked their reception at Chateau du Grand Val, a manor house surrounded by rolling hills.
The bride wore a wedding dress made by Israeli designer Lihi Hod.
Solenn personally picked up her dress a month before her wedding.
The GMA-7 actress flew to Tel-Aviv, Israel for the final fitting at the designer's atelier.
Four years after their wedding, Solenn and Nico are now parents to five-month-old daughter Thylane.
Isabelle Daza and Adrien Semblat

They flew to Tuscany in Italy for the wedding of Isabelle and Adrien.
Isabelle and Adrian got married at the Chiesa de San Francesco, church in central Lucca, a region in Tuscany.
Their reception was held in Castello di Gargonza, a privately owned Tuscan village.
The months leading up to her wedding were an emotional ride for Isabelle.
Her father, Bong Daza, passed away on July 14, 2016.
Although the wedding preparations were momentarily put on hold, the wedding ceremony pushed through as planned.
Isabelle wore a Vera Wang gown, and was the first official Vera Wang Manila bride. .
A year after their wedding, Isabelle and Adrien announced her pregnancy.
In March 2018, she and Adrien welcomed their son Baltie.
Baltie was named after Isabelle's father Bong.
Wedding ceremonies in the new normal
With the COVID-19 pandemic still a public health threat, it may take some time for destination weddings to be an option again.
So far, weddings, baptisms, and other social gatherings in the metro are expected to be intimate and small affairs.
The Archdiocese of Manila released guidelines for religious activites last May 6, 2020.
The bride and the groom are not allowed to have entourage, while only the parents, their child, and one set of godparents will be allowed for baptisms.
On top of that, it is unclear when the international air travel will normalize.
As of now, outbound international flights are limited to only foreign nationals, permanent residents and student visa holders, and overseas Filipino workers.
