Groom poses as a bride

To mark an event as special as a wedding, couples love to come up with creative ideas. For couple Sarah “Sah” Jimenez and Ronnel Binuya, creativity meant taking their wedding photoshoot to the next level by adding a twist – letting Binuya, the groom, take the role of a bride.

Wearing a white robe while striking a pose with his groomsmen, Binuya dresses up as a bride instead of Jimenez as he slays his angles better than his wife in their wedding photoshoot.

Binuya’s photos wowed netizens

Jimenez lovingly shared her groom’s photos on Facebook on 10th June, to the delight of netizens and other couples. According to her, the photoshoot fulfilled her husband’s dream of becoming a bride.

“Talagang ginalingan nya!! Pangarap nya raw kasing imaging bride,” she said. This can be translated as “He totally nailed it!! According to him, he dreams of being a bride.”

Jimenez also jokingly acknowledged that her husband is better than she is when it comes to striking a pose. “Magaling pa sa ‘kin mag pose hahaha,” which means “He is better than I am at posing” in English.
