Holy Union in Manila

Lesbian or gay wedding in Metro Manila

Manila, officially the City of Manila, is the capital of the Philippines and the most densely populated city proper in the world. The City of Manila is located on the eastern shores of the Manila Bay. The Pasig River flows through the middle of the city, dividing it into the north and south. Manila is made up of 16 districts: Binondo, Ermita, Intramuros, Malate, Paco, Pandacan, Port Area, Quiapo, Sampaloc, San Andres, San Miguel, San Nicolas, Santa Ana, Santa Cruz, Santa Mesa and Tondo. Manila is also made up of Six Congressional Districts that represents the city on the Lower House of the Philippine Congress.

Manila welcomes over 1 million tourists each year. Major tourist destinations include the historic Walled City of Intramuros, the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex, Manila Ocean Park, Binondo (Chinatown), Ermita, Malate, Manila Zoo, the National Museum Complex and Rizal Park.

If you want a Spanish era-themed same-sex wedding, you can celebrate it in the historic walled city of Intramuros, complete with a Kalesa (horse carriage) experience. Manila is also home to the oldest chinatown in the world, so you can celebrate your same-sex wedding with an authentic Chinese catering.

Or, you can celebrate your same-sex wedding in one of the many venues within the metropolitan city that accepts special events.

If you are a same-sex couple, or if you are a couple with one of you being a trans*, and you are not able to legally marry each other due to the laws of the Philippines not having a same-sex or marriage equality law yet, you might be interested to have a ceremonious wedding instead, or a 'Holy Union', under Open Table Metropolitan Community Church.
