Vatel Manila was an idea born at The Mango Farm in late 2005. It was inspired by the 2000 film, VATEL, starring Gérard Depardieu & Uma Thurman. Depardieu plays François Vatel, the Master of Festivities and Pleasures in the court of Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé. It's a long story, you might as well read on it or watch the film, ha ha! WATCH the trailer HERE. Suffice to say that our business is largely based on Vatel's aesthetic (at least a fraction of it) and his sense of honor & duty amidst great adversity.
At the beginning, we were just there to assist the Farm in conceptualizing booth designs whenever it attends bridal fairs. Our first wedding was in November 2005 and the second in June of 2006. The rate has risen since then and as we speak, we have done more than 2,000 weddings since we started.
