Pia Guanio

Pia Guanio described her wedding ceremony as “solemn”, “very meaningful” and “private.”

TV host Pia Guanio shared the details of her wedding ceremony to ‘Showbiz Central’ yesterday, October 9. Unfortunately, she couldn’t personally appear live at the set of the said talk show where she’s also one of the hosts due to her bad colds.

Pia kept the wedding plans a secret that even her co-hosts at ‘Showbiz Central’ didn’t know about it. Pia Guanio and Steve Magno got married last October 1, but the newly-wed couple managed to keep it from the public’s eyes. It was only in ‘Showbiz Central’ that Pia confirmed that she and Steve finally professed their love in an intimate ceremony.

Pastor Paolo Punzalan, son of the late Helen Vela and brother of Princess Punzalan, officiated the wedding rites. The ceremony was held at Steve’s parents’ house in Ayala, Alabang.

Pia said that there were only less than 50 guests who attended their wedding held at the garden of her husband’s parents. She added that those who attended were the ones closest to them—family and friends.

Accoriding to Pia, the ceremony only took 2 days to prepare while “the spiritual preparation took a month.”

Pia told her co-hosts at the show that preferred her wedding to be private. She said, “Ayaw talaga namin ng any kind of unnecessary distractions of what a really big wedding entails.”

“Kapag intimate ang isang okasyon, damang-dama mo.

During the wedding day, Pia said that despite weather disturbances brought about by typhoon Quiel, the wedding was meant to be because the rain stopped from pouring momentarily.

“It was meant to be. Tumila ang ulan para makapasok ang guests,” she said.

Meanwhile, co-host John Lapus asked Pia if the dress she wore during her wedding day was the same dress he (John) saw Pia trying to fit in the dressing room. John jokingly said that he thought that Pia will be attending a wedding ceremony as an “abay.” Instead, it’s the dress that Pia would wear for her wedding.
