Over a week ago, Karel Marquez and her fiance Sean Fariñas moved the Netizens with their pre-wedding video.
It retold Karel's life story in a very artistic form: spoken-word poetry.
In an exclusive chat via Facebook Messenger with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the actress-singer revealed how her team came up with the three-minute spectacle.
The former MYX VJ confessed, “Sinulat nila lahat from since I started showbiz to my challenges in life, trials, lahat until I met Sean.
“Umiyak ako kasi I saw myself in that spoken word.
“I was so happy.”
A few weeks before their wedding day of December 1, 2016, the couple released another set of prenup photos which were shot in Hong Kong.
She told PEP via chat on November 8, that everything is part of their countdown.
"One at a time. The one I posted is not even close to the nice ones I am excited to post until December 1."
This was the fourth out of five shoots.
Each session had a different theme and was done by different photography teams.
For this set, the couple wanted to veer away from the "posed" or "dramatic" attack.
Karel described it as "more of a light and fun shoot."
The concept was a "paparazzi camera was just following us around town."
We then asked her why they chose Hong Kong as one their prenup locations.
She replied, "It all came down to wanting something for a change since all our shoots for the wedding were either just around Manila or just out-of-town in the Philippines.
"We love traveling so it was an easy 'yes' to do it in HK, it's still doable and cheaper compared to going somewhere far from Manila."
Part of her shot list was "walking in the middle of the busy streets."
