Bohol's First & Only Bb Pilipinas Queen is Now Mrs. Anna Maris Taylor

Ten years ago, she made history as the first Boholana beauty queen to win a national beauty title when she was crowned the 2006 Bb Pilipinas- World. 

After representing her country beautifully in the Miss World Pageant held in Poland, she made a name for herself as a GMA7 TV personality, a pageant mentor, inspirational speaker stylist, events host & organizer.

It was in 2013 when she found herself organizing & pitching in for relief efforts when Bohol was rocked by a devastating earthquake. Her tireless efforts & boundless energy didn’t go unnoticed by media and she was in fact, named one of Cosmo Philippines 2014 Fun Fearless Females for lending her name & voice to volunteerism.

That beautiful Boholana with a heart of gold enters a new phase in her life when she exchanged lifetime vows with Tommy Taylor from Down Under last May 28 at the lovely South Palms Resort in Panglao Island . 

A breathtaking scene awaited the guests and the newlyweds when they saw how Blue Grass Project of Michael Yu & Joseph Ven Dumadag turned the place into a most romantic & lovely setting for a beach wedding.

A day earlier, the trendsetting Anna Maris Arcay Igpit, a true- blue Panglao Island lass whose sunkissed complexion, delicate features & towering frame never fails to make heads turn exchanged  “I Dos” with Tommy in an intimate and solemn matrimonial mass witnessed by family & friends and blessed by God at the San Agustin Church in Panglao.

Fr. Val Pinlac who officiated the mass delivered such a beautiful & stirring homily that spoke of the couple’s journey towards the altar.

Principal sponsors included Bohol Gov. Edgar Chatto & First Lady Pureza Chatto, Habitat for Humanity’s Charlie Ayco & Panglao Mayor Nila Montero who has been so supportive of Panglao’s pride that she even accompanied Anna Maris to Warsaw, Poland when the latter competed in Miss World 2006.
