Just because the guest lists are shorter doesn’t mean you can’t go all out in orchestrating the happiest day of your life. You can still have that picture perfect fairytale event that you’ll be gushing about years from now—while abiding by IATF guidelines, of course—and it all starts with your canvas: the venue!
As far as out of town weddings go, Tagaytay remains to be a favorite for couples for its scenic views, crisp mountain air, and cooler climate. Being approximately an hour drive from Metro Manila’s CBD is also an added bonus as travel to this idyllic countryside escape is convenient.
Here are 8 intimate wedding venues in Tagaytay.
1. Hillcreek Gardens
This spacious estate boasts of sprawling greeneries abound. All Hillcreek Gardens nuptials come with a free use of a separate garden for either cocktails or ceremony.
