Best Chapels in the Philippines For Your Church Wedding

These days, any place can become a wedding venue—from seaside resorts to sprawling garden villas. Although destination weddings are all the rage, saying “I do” in a church and having a traditional white wedding is still a classic and nothing short of magical. 

Planning to walk down the aisle soon? Here are some of the best churches for weddings in the Philippines that can add flair to even the most traditional ceremony and should definitely be on your venue option list:

Baclayon Church

This huge church in Bohol is made out of coral stones. From the inside, it looks like it could pass as an underwater church in the lost city of Atlantis.

It’s the second oldest stone church in the Philippines (after San Agustin Church) and features paintings of stories from the bible on its walls and high ceiling, as well as relics reminiscent of the Roman Catholic Church’s history in the country.

The Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception in Bohol is considered one of the best-preserved Jesuit-built churches in the Philippines and is only six kilometers from Tagbilaran City.
