IZA Calzado formally tied the knot with groom Ben Wintle last Wednesday at a very private and simple wedding ceremony at the Paradise Club island resort in Coron, Palawan. Only very close friends and family members were invited. Among the celebrity principal sponsors are Judy Ann Santos and husband Ryan Agoncillo, Lucy Torrez Gomez and Iza’s manager, Noel Ferrer.
Iza was given away by her brother Dash Calzado. Friends and relatives who are not in Palawan will be invited by the newlyweds in a special dinner they’ll be hosting soon. Iza and Ben’s wedding is the fourth one in showbiz in a matter of weeks, led by Christian Bautista and Kat Ramnani, then followed by Aljur Abrenica and Kylie Padilla, and Lotlot de Leon and her Lebanese long time boyfriend Fadi El Soury who is a deadringer for Cebuano singer Luke Mejares.
Iza will remain active in her acting career even if she’s now officially Mrs. Wintle. She’s doing a soap with ABS-CBN and is shooting a new movie to be shown in February with Sang’gre co-stars Sunshine Dizon, Diana Zubiri and Karylle who attended her Palawan nuptials, under the direction of Mark Reyes.
Before her wedding, Iza sought the help of her personal friend, Dr. Vicki Belo, to make sure she’ll be the most beautiful bride ever. "Dr. Belo has always taken good care of me," she says. "She has always done non-invasive Radio Frequency treatments for my body such as Venus Freeze, a skin-tightening treatment for non-surgical slimming and Thermage to firm up my loose skin after I lose weight. This also helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastic fibers on my face so it will be smooth, well-toned and clear. And I also discovered the beauty of their laser treatments like Angel White that really help you maintain your youthful looks by lightening the skin and giving it a more even tone. There’s also a panda eye mode, which is specifically designed to lighten dark circles. It can also target spider veins and reduce facial redness, plus Skin Reboot to firm up and tighten skin using mesobiolift and micro current to stimulate collagen formation for younger- looking skin.”
