Manila: The Wedding Capital of the Philippines

If you are working in Manila, who cannot afford time (and money) for an out of town wedding, you could not be in a better place…Manila offers the most comprehensive wedding resources and facilities for working professionals.


Churches


Intramuros, the “city within walls,” has two of Manila’s centuries-old churches - San Agustin Church and The Manila Cathedral.

Did you know?


Intramuros
was once a Chinese settlement before the Spaniards widened the perimeters and enclosed the city in walls.


Outside of the walled city, Malate Church is considered to be one of the oldest churches and is famous for its Moslem-baroque architecture. The famed Quiapo Church is home to the centuries-old, miraculous image of the Black Nazarene. On the other hand, The San Sebastian Church along Plaza del Carmen is known for being the first all-steel church in the Philippines and in Asia; and the second in the world. You may also opt for San Beda Church or San Miguel Church located along University Belt area.
