LOOK: Karel Marquez ties knot with fiance
Kapuso actress Karel Marquez finally got hitched to her boyfriend of four years, Sean Carlo Fariñas, at the Sanctuario de San Antonio Forbes Park in Makati on Thursday.
The actress overwhelmed guests with a white lace gown, while her groom was donned in navy blue. Several celebrities including Yasmin Kurdi, Bela Padilla, Carla Abellana and Richard Gutierrez attended the ceremony.
Before the nuptials, Marquez gifted Fariñas with a brand-new BMW.
The couple got engaged last May during their escapade at a beach in Negros Occidental.
Fariñas is a businessman who owns a gym and several bars, including Dillinger’s and Locale Gastrobar.
In a previous interview with Inquirer, Marquez opened up about how Fariñas accepted her two children, Keiley and Kyler, and treated them as his own. “He loves my kids to death. He’s like a daddy to them. To think he’s a bachelor and he comes from a prominent family. I’m so touched that he chose to love me and be there for me and my kids,” she said.
The two became a couple back in December 2012. Marquez separated from model Arman de Guzman in 2011, with whom she had two children. Gianna Francesca Catolico
