One of the many highlights of our life is the day we say ‘I do.’ A wedding ceremony is an event we always want to remember that’s why we go over our limits to make it wonderful; from hiring professional photographers to choosing the right cake. Everything just has to be perfect on this special day and we’ll start with the venue.
The Philippines is undoubtedly a beautiful archipelago with lots of hidden wedding-worthy places. Here are four of the best wedding destinations in the country that will make your special day extraordinary!
Club Paradise Palawan
There’s nothing more romantic than a sunset view along the shore while saying your vows to your beloved. Palawan can give you this and more. If you’re the type of couple who enjoys long walks along the beach or quiet and alone time with your relatives and friends, then Club Paradise Palawan is definitely the best wedding destination for you. Club Paradise is a 4.5-star beach resort located in Coron, Palawan. Just early 2019, Filipina actress Iza Calzado and British entrepreneur Ben Wintle finally tied the knot in this paradise. The couple enjoyed a beach wedding ceremony and had their pictures taken with the pristine waters of Palawan as their backdrop!
Balesin Island Club (Eastern Coast of Luzon)
Intimacy and luxury wrapped with a golden bow of peace and quiet – that’s what Balesin Island Club can give you. Balesin is a 500-hectare island paradise located at the Pacific Ocean, 60 nautical miles from Manila. You’ll have to travel by a private chartered plane for 25 minutes to get to the island if you’re coming for the said city. Balesin Island has different ‘villages’ you can choose from. These villages mirror some of the most beautiful places around the world such as Bali, Phuket, Mykonos, St. Tropez, Costa del Sol, and Tuscany. Balesin Island Club is indeed one of the best wedding destinations in the country. This island has indoor and outdoor options for a wedding; you may choose to say ‘I do’ by the beach or enjoy a solemn ceremony in the Balesin Chapel.
San Agustin Church, Intramuros
Aside from pristine beaches and white sand, it’s always a good decision to tie the knot inside a holy sanctuary – the church.
The Spanish came to the Philippines hundreds of years ago for the three G’s: God, Gold, and Glory. In order to spread Catholicism, they built churches all over the county and San Agustin is one of those. Considered as the oldest church in the Philippines, San Agustin Church is hailed as a national historic landmark.
This is best suited for brides and grooms who share a love for architecture, history, and tradition. It’s located in Intramuros, Manila, a space within the busy city that takes you back to the Spanish era.
The Mango Farm, Antipolo
For those who want to embrace the green nature and admire rows of colorful flowers, then maybe you should consider having a garden wedding? One of the best garden wedding destinations is the Mango Farm.
Nestled at the Cainta-Antipolo border, the Mango Farm is a quick drive from the metro. Unleash your inner boho personality, wear your flower crown, and march towards your happily ever after in this little paradise.
