The renewal celebration was attended by a handful of friends from 25 years ago, in the medieval church of San Francesco in Fiesole, Florence.

Bongbong and Lisa (formerly Araneta) Marcos renewed their vows last Tuesday, April 17, in Florence, Italy, in the same medieval church they married in 25 years ago.

The 25th wedding year celebration was attended by the same handful of friends and relatives who were with them 25 years ago. They number about 15, as shown in the photos here.

Unable to attend were Marcos’ mother, Imelda, who’s now in her 80s, and sisters Imee and Irene.

Apparently the couple kept their original guest list, with their children added, of course, along with the children of Suzanne Araneta Ledesma, Lisa’s sister.


The Marcos’ sons Vincent and Simon were around. Eldest son Sandro is in school in London.

After the mass celebrated by Rogationist priest Fr. Carmelo Capizzi in the San Francesco Church in Fiesole, Florence, the retinue had lunch at Villa San Michele.

It was a quiet celebration, where the bride wore the same bridal dress she wore 25 years ago.
