When you’ve planned your big day for months, there’s not much you’ll let stand in the way of your getting married. For this one Filipino couple, that includes a volcanic eruption, apparently.




LOVE FINDS A WAY

While thousands were being evacuated and the country’s airport was being shut down, wedding photographer Randolf Evan was busy taking pictures of Chino and Kat Vanflor’s happy day.

The wedding took place at Savanna Farm Tagaytay by Solange.

He shared the photos of the wedding, with Taal Volcano releasing a column of volcanic debris 15 kilometres into the atmosphere as a dramatic background.




VOLCANIC ERUPTION WON’T STOP THIS WEDDING

Talking to CNN, Evan said “We were actually nervous because while working we kept on checking social media for updates on the volcanic eruption. So we were actually aware of the warnings and escalating levels that was being announced real time. We also discussed discreetly among ourselves what we should do when worst comes to worst.”

Thousands of Filipinos evacuated the immediate vicinity of the volcano, which is in the popular tourist destination of Tagaytay.

Tagaytay is just 50 kilometres south of the country’s capital city of Manila.




PHILVOCS ALERT LEVEL 4 REMAINS IN PLACE

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHILVOCS) has raised the alert status to Alert Level 4, indicating that a hazardous explosive eruption remains imminent.

No casualties have been reported thus far.
