Pre-nuptial photography is one of the fun activities that an engaged couple can do before exchanging their “I Dos.” Going to locations, donning costumes, and getting all dressed up for a photoshoot is exciting. Plus, the outcome is a treasury of the most gorgeous photos that the couple can keep forever. One of the most unique themes to have is Sa Lahat ng Simbahan, which a newlywed Bacolod couple gave to life. Read the story of TV personality Adrian Bobe and beauty queen Lian Enumerable.
Having a Pre-Nuptial Photography Session
When a couple plans to get married, one of the suppliers that they give the most importance to is the photo and video coverage. That is because, when all the blitz and excitement has died down, it’s the pictures and videos that remain for life. These memories captured in print and video will be the remembrance of the couple’s wedding for generations to come.
Most of the time, a pre-nuptial photography session is included in the package. A couple can opt out but most of the time, they take advantage of this addition because it’s just so nice to have a photo shoot before the big day.
Moreover, you can use the photos and videos for the save the date, invitations, and even during the AVP for the wedding.
Planning the Scenario
A couple will then have to choose the location of the shoot, the outfits, and of course, the hair and make-up. Sometimes, the wedding coordinator or the photographer and videographer will make suggestions.
The goal is usually to come up with a unique pre-nuptial photo shoot that speaks of the couple’s interests and love for each other.
So many interesting and awesome pre-nuptial photography sessions have been produced over the years and the quality just keeps getting better.

Sa Lahat ng Simbahan: A Very Romantic Pre-Nuptial Photography Theme
Now that everyone is working to get up from the debilitating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, a Bacolod couple pushed through with their dream wedding. Tagged as the wedding of the year by the media, it’s not about the pomp or the number of guests.
But it is the love of two people creatively expressed from the pre-nuptial photography to the wedding itself.
The groom is Adrian Bobe, a seasoned host and now news anchor of One Western Visayas by GMA Regional News TV. Meanwhile, his bride is Lian Enumerable, Negrense beauty queen and model turned banker.
For their pre-nuptial photography theme, they chose “Sa Lahat ng Simbahan.” It may sound like an outdated hopeless romantic quote that our grandfathers would utter during courtship. But they have effectively translated it to modern times to give us the “kilig” feels.
Adrian says, “We have heard this always in old movies. I wrote a poem for Lian detailing my kind of love. We have always wanted a church wedding so picking a dream church is very difficult. That is why, we tapped suppliers to provide for us at least 7 pairs of gowns and suits (for our pre-nuptial photography).”
About Lian and Adrian: #LiAd
#LiAd is a story of two people who decided to love each other every single day of their lives. Their special bond was formed in the most overwhelming circumstances. Theirs is a story worth telling to thousands of hopeless people looking for love in wrong places.
Lian went through delicate heart surgery in 2014. It was a painstaking procedure to secure that her heart beats at just the right pace. Not too fast. Not too slow.
Apart from the long list of medicines she takes, it was love that took a huge part in keeping her heart healthy and happy.
How They Met
Adrian enters Lian’s life as a mentor. It was in 2016 when both of them first met. He served as a strict mentor after being tapped to serve as Lian’s communications training coach while she prepared for a provincial pageant.
On most days, she would give up, given that Adrian had the reputation of being very critical and disciplined during training. They interacted on a professional level, as both of them were happy at that time with previous relationships.
In 2017, their paths crossed again, but this time, both of them were being single. A trip to Zambales with friends made them rediscover each other on a personal level.
The cool breeze and the romantic volcanic formations of Zambales fanned the flames between the two. Zambales was a witness as to how Adrian and Lian’s long conversations paved way for the love that they have today.
For Lian, she found a man who keeps her heart beating at the right pace through a love that is both secure and honest. Adrian, on the other hand, met a woman who keeps his life balanced as he pursues his passion as a broadcast journalist.
Pakakasalan Kita sa Lahat ng Simbahan
If given the chance, Adrian would want to marry Lian in all the churches, just like the saying goes. It is proof of his love and devotion to her that he intends to do for the rest of his life.
They have given a fresh and modern romantic interpretation to this Filipino staying and their photos have turned out beautifully.
Cheers and congratulations to this beautiful couple! Always stay true to each other. God bless you and the family you will build!
Negros Occidental Churches
For their pre-nuptial photography sessions, the couple wore different gowns and suits. The Negros Occidental churches included were:
- San Sebastian Cathedral, Diocese of Bacolod City
- San Diego Pro-Cathedral, Silay City, Negros Occidental
- St. John the Baptist Church, Bago City, Negros Occidental
- St. Jude Parish and Shrine in Alijis, Bacolod City
- St. Mary Magdalene Parish, Municipality of Hinigaran, Negros Occidental
- Our Lady of Guadalupe, Valladolid, Negros Occidental
They chose the churches based on aesthetics as well as significance. Adrian’s great grandmother used to pray in the Valladolic church when she was still alive. Meanwhile, the San Sebastian Cathedral is where Adrian prayed and asked for signs if his relationship with Lian is for keeps.
It is no nice that they showed their faith, love, and reverence for their family in their pre-nuptial photography theme. Plus, they featured some of the nice churches in Negros Occidental.
As for the actual wedding, the ceremony was held at the Talan-awon ni Maria Shrine Marian Missionaries of the Holy Cross. This is located in Brgy. Blumentritt, Municipality of Murcia, Negros Occidental.
Since it was held in November this year while the Covid-19 pandemic still hasn’t been controlled, safety measures were observed.
