One of the most well-known wedding destinations in the Philippines, Tagaytay is ideal for exchanging vows and relaxing in a peaceful setting with your guests. Not surprisingly, a local wedding industry has developed within this dreamy location. You do not have to source suppliers from somewhere else just to find the right people to organize your dream Tagaytay wedding.
A Wedding with A View
Many Tagaytay restaurants, hotels, and private gardens have opened their doors to meet the needs of soon-to-wed couples. Some venues even offer wedding and ceremony packages with food, banquet set-up, and entertainment programs to help couples reduce the hassles involved in wedding planning.
Villa Ibarra, the best specialty lodging in Tagaytay according to TripAdvisor, offers a comprehensive 200-pax Villa International Gala Wedding Package. Highlights include a sword parade during entrance, tempura and crepe station, and an unparalleled view of the Taal Lake and Taal Volcano from the spacious garden and from your honeymoon suite.
Tagaytay Garden Weddings
What about a garden wedding venue that may not offer view of the Taal but still offer the same cool climate, intimacy, and lush scenery that Tagaytay is famous for? What’s more, some of these wedding venues offer free use of their gardens for prenuptial photo shoots if you avail of their wedding packages.
Hillcreek Gardens offers Basic and Premium Love Food Packages for couples. Venue amenities include use of the gazebo for Christian weddings or cocktails and use of its lush main gardens for prenuptial shoots and reception. For more intimate weddings, you can hold the reception at the indoor Anahaw House and Garden.
At the heart of community life in Nalé is the sprawling Club Ananda. Different lifestyles converge in perfect harmony through its one-of- a-kind amenities.
Take a dip in the only river pool in the South as you enjoy the cool mountain breeze, or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Calamias River for a more authentic experience. Kids can frolic at the kiddie island with its white sand, while fitness buffs can enjoy training at the 25-meter infinity lap pool. Indoor and outdoor function areas are designed to cater to events all year round.
Club Ananda’s close proximity to Caleruega Church and Chapel on the Hill make it the perfect venue for wedding receptions and other milestones.
Taal Vista Hotel is a perfect example of classic architecture and contemporary function. The hotel has 261 stylishly appointed rooms that are fully-equipped with modern amenities. Feel the residential warmth of the historic lodge at the Mountain Wing and experience a touch of modern flair at the Lake Wing.
Lush. Green. Breezy. Tranquil. Peaceful. Perfect. These are just some adjectives that immediately come to mind with The Veranda at Bella Rosa Farm.
Located in the heart of Silang, just a 45-minute drive from the city, The Veranda at Bella Rosa Farm is an expansive 4-hectare flower farm/family property that’s perfect for your event needs. Abundant in lush greenery, fresh air, golden sunlight, and dreamy gardenscapes, it’s no wonder The Veranda is Silang’s best kept secret.
