Intimate Philippine Wedding Venue With Striking Natural Beauty


An Intimate Philippine Wedding Venue With Striking Natural Beauty For a Beach or Garden Destination Wedding

The Philippine’s is a popular honeymoon and destination wedding location for a number of reasons, but two things people find most enjoyable are the friendly locals who are known for their hospitality and the beautiful islands and islets of which there are 7,000!

Jagged cliffs jut against the vast ocean waters and rock formations stand guard amidst aquamarine lagoons. Rolling terrain, hiking trails, and lush tree lines allure adventurers and sandy shorelines with fancy accommodation attract the luxury crowds.  

There are Philippine islands that are unspoiled and only accessible by boat and popular tourist attractions with must-visit beaches and plenty of local charm. Essentially, there’s an island for every personality and preference.

If you’re looking for real Philippine wedding inspiration or inspiration for a Filipino American wedding, you’re going to love these shots of this wedding that was both a garden wedding and beach wedding. Who says you can’t have both, right?

However, before you take a look at these real wedding images, let’s look at the venue, because if you want to plan a Philippine wedding ceremony in one of the most beautiful venues in the Philippines with a number of options to choose from, The Bluewater Panglao Resort provides a stunning setting with plenty of options.

Philippine Wedding Venue

The Bluewater Panglao Beach Resort has three outdoor venue options: beachfront, garden walkway, and Kawayanan. Their Philippine destination wedding (or local wedding) package includes: 

  • An overnight stay in a villa
  • Breakfast buffet
  • Tropical fruit basket
  • Amuma Hilot Lamang for the bride and groom (this is a type of massage with long-flowy strokes and techniques native to the Philippines to loosen tight muscles and relax)
  • Reception setting and use of the sound system
  • Dinner buffet
  • Lechon for carving
  • A three-tiered cake
  • Bottle of wine
  • And of course your choice of the outdoor venue

Of course, you can add additional nights and tailor your experience. The resort has been around for three decades so they have experience with meticulous customer care and pride themselves on being a place where “Amuma” is present. 

Amuma is a word used in the Philippines that speaks to their culture of warmth, friendliness, and hospitality. It means “to nurture,” “to foster,” “to take care,” or “to guide.” And you get the feeling right away that that is exactly what happens when you get married there. 

Okay, let’s take a look at some spots at The Panglao Beach Resort from a real wedding. 

Real Wedding Images from a Wedding in the Philippines

This couple got married in a traditional church in the Philippines. 

The couple got some beautiful shots on the grounds of the Panglao Beach Resort with their beautiful garden as the backdrop. 

Their wedding dinner and reception were celebrated on the beach with an incredibly beautiful and minimal tropical island design style.

Lots of candlelight and hanging lights were used to set the ambiance and the backdrop for the dancefloor.

When it comes to getting married, there are so many beautiful venues, styles, and design elements that make for a unique, personal, and intimate experience.
