MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – It is not uncommon for married couples to renew their wedding vows, but they do so usually on the silver or golden anniversary of wedded bliss.

The ‘royal’ wedding of Filipino film stars Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes happened last December 30, but already, they want to renew their wedding vows on January 15 when Pope Francis arrives in Manila for the papal visit. That would be just a little over 15 days!

The ostentatious wedding — which reportedly cost 100 Million Pesos — was officiated by eight bishops and seven priests. Apparently, that wasn’t enough.

The couple wanted to take advantage of the papal visit to renew their wedding vows before Pope Francis.  The private ceremony will be held in the presidential palace (Malacañang). President NoyNoy Aquino will reprise his role as Best Man.

It will be a low-key wedding this time around. No Two Million Peso wedding gown or 12-ft. wedding cake. No other guests will be invited other than the president and his sister, Kris Aquino.
