Wedding Venues in Quezon City and Metro Manila

Come February is my BIG DAY. I will formally exchange my vow to my loving husband at the church . We are already civilly married and since we are both Catholics we decided to have a church wedding in Manila so my family, some of my relatives and cousins could attend. Hubby said when we had our civil wedding his side of the family are present but my side is not because the civil wedding took place is America. Since I live in Quezon city long before I migrated to the US I consider looking for a church and venue within Quezon City and since Manila is also famous for its historic and old churhes I decided to include it in my list. After a thorough thinking and planning I decided to take the church of San Agustin in Intramuros, Manila and get a venue there for my reception. Though I know that planning the wedding is tiring and I know that it would take time looking for place of venue I compiled this list of venues and post it here to help those who are planning to have their weddings in the Philippines.
1.Fern wood Gardens, Sanville Subdivision - this place is quite well-known, you may heard it already but don’t exactly know where the place is. A number of celebrities and well-known personalities held important events in Fern wood sample is the Aiko Melendez and Martin Jickain's wedding, television news journalist Katherine "Kat kat" de Castro and Eric Rada Cruz's wedding. If you're not from the area then you might have a difficult time going there. Because it is situated inside Sanville Subdivision, which is not exactly easy to find since it's more like an open village. But once you get to Sanville, there are a lot of signboards that point to Sanville, and they provide a map too. I may see this is an expensive venue but if you can afford this is a good place to hold your memorable wedding.

2.Gazebo Royale, in Visayas Avenue - According to its website, this place boasts
artistically landscaped surroundings where
rare ornamental foliage abounds. I'd say this
is quite true (even though I haven't entered
it yet) because when you look at Gazebo
Royale from the outside (let's say you're passing by Visayas Avenue), it looks like a it’s a place where you buy plants and flowers. Gazebo Royale is a bit near Fernwood but probably easier to find since it's along main road.

3.Grand Terrace, Commonwealth
Avenue
-This place has four air-conditioned venues that can accommodate 800 guests
at one time. The Venus Garden can accom modate 300 guests, Lotus Garden 100 and the main pavilion, which can be divided into two, about 400 people.


4. Patio Ibarra, Quezon Avenue -I've passed by Quezon Avenue a thousand times and

I don't think I've noticed this place. However, I've read good reviews about Patio Ibarra and they seem to have good party packages for weddings, baptismal receptions, birthday parties (especially debuts), children's parties, and Christmas parties.
5. Plaza Ibarra, Timog Avenue - Plaza Ibarra and Patio Ibarra are both under the Ibarra group, so I guess they offer the same amenities and services.



6.Solea, Baler Street - Who would've thought that a place like this would exist in the San Fransisco del Monte area? I am from Frisco but I didn’t hear this place. Solea is also a garden venue affiliated with various churches like the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice (commonly known as the UP Chapel), Santo Domingo Church along Quezon Avenue, Santuario de San Jose in East Greenhills, and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Shrine Parish in New Manila.


7. Batis Asul, Hereos Hill - Batis Asul was established in 1981 by a family of caterers from Pampanga. They have wedding and kiddie party packages, as well as a "regular package" for other types of venues.










8.THE TEATRILLO, Intramuros

Manila
–this place is just one of the historical place inIntramuros area. A tourist destination one can be proud of. Ideal for romantic weddings, exhibits, seminars, stage presentations, and other functions, the place accommodates 200 for sit-down receptions and seating for 300 for theatre presentations. I choose this place because of the seating capacity and its cheaper. And San Agustin Church is
where I will have my formal vow, is just
near here.
9.SALA FILIPINA ,
Intramuros Manila
-The restaurant offers you the good life with a sense of history and culture --delectable international cuisine, with piano and string accompaniment. The place host special occasions with fine dining, in a hall reminiscent of gracious living in the 19th century. Sits up to 180 guests.

10.CASA MANILA PATIO ,
Intramuros
-The captivating Spanish colonial setting at the PATIO makes it the perfect choice for weddings and receptions. Sits up to 150 guests.


11.PLAZA MORIONES & TRELLIS, Intra muros
- Once a promenade for residents of Intramuros in the 19th century, the wide expanse of greens in this plaza provides a magnificent view of historic Fort Santiago gate. Can accommodate up to 500 guests.

12.SAN DIEGO GARDENS,
Intramuros
-Reached through a spiral stone stairway, the fascinating 16th c. ruins of Fort Nuestra Sra. de Guia make the bulwark a most exquisite spot. Sits up to 1,000 guests.




13.PUERTA REAL GARDENS
-A stone's throw away from the Luneta lies a place of lush tropical greens and coconut palms surrounded by 18th century stone walls and chambers of Revellin de Real. The restored Puerta Real and drawbridge make it an even more enchanting locale for open-air functions. Sits up to 1,000 guests.

The venue can be outdoor in wedding but reception should be done in an interior venue.
