“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.”Judy Garland
The COVID-19 pandemic did not stop this LGBT+ couple on celebrating their same-sex wedding ceremony here in the Philippines.
Open Table MCC, one of the few Christian churches that conducts same-sex weddings (also known as Holy Unions), opened its doors for LGBT+ couples who want to want to have their wedding ceremony despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Strict safety and health guidelines are followed during the wedding ceremony. Before entering our chapel space, we make sure to check the temperature of each attendees. We require all guests to wear face masks, and we limit the number of guests during the ceremony so that social distancing is ensured. The chapel space is also disinfected before and after each ceremony. We also have alcohol ready for disinfecting the hands of our guests during the wedding.
