Fernan family hosts bridal shower for Giorgia Guidicelli

It was an intimate dinner Fernan hosted in the family residence in Cebu two weekends ago, attended by the immediate family.

Giorgia is the only daughter of Gianluca and Glenna Guidicelli, a business clan in Cebu founded by Gianluca’s father who resettled in the country from Italy. Glenna is a Fernan.
