If there’s a country known for its celebrations, it’s the Philippines. Intensely colourful fiestas and relentlessly cheerful locals, along with a cuisine and landscapes heavily influenced by the Spanish, make up the perfect backdrop for your wedding and honeymoon. Choose from numerous beautiful, exotic islands or the heady capital of Manila to celebrate your love and create memories that will be remembered in the fondest ways for years to come.
Intramuros, also known as the Walled City, is the capital’s historic core and half an hour away from Conrad Manila. In it are two of the Philippines grandest churches, San Agustin Church and the Manila Cathedral.
San Agustin Church, built in 1589, is the oldest stone church in the Philippines and makes for a romantic backdrop for photographs.
Manila Cathedral, also built during the Spanish occupation, is known for its grandeur and old-world charm. This church has been designated as a minor basilica by St. John Paul II.
Corregidor Island, an hour from Manila Bay, has a stunning landscape dotted with ruins from World War II.
Imagine posing for photos framed by Manila Bay’s famed sunsets, or against the beautiful old streets in Intramuros. The modern couple will love that they can host a spectacular banquet in the capital of Manila and be whisked away within hours for a honeymoon at a pristine secluded beach.
