I’m a Philippines wedding photographer based in Manila, specializing in shooting destination weddings all over Southeast Asia.
DESTINATION WEDDING PHILIPPINES
The Philippines is a bit of a paradox in terms of a destination wedding location. On one hand, it offers the most incredible island and beach experience in Southeast Asia. On the other hand, most of those islands do require some extra effort to get to. But if you have the time and the inclination, then the Philippines could be the ideal place for your destination wedding.
BORCAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Boracay is easily the most famous of the islands in the Philippines. And for good reason – its easily accessible (a short flight from Manila), has gorgeous white sand beaches and blue waters, and has one of the best resorts in the country – the Shangri-La Boracay. There’s also a ton of activities available on the island that are perfect for a destination wedding – paragliding, windsurfing, snorkelling, and a great nightlife. Its busy, its not always kept pristine clean, but if you want a beautiful island with lots of things to do for an energetic group, Boracay has it all.
EL NIDO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
El Nido and Coron in Palawan offer something different from Boracay – exclusivity. Top of the list are Amanpulo and El Nido resorts, and Ariara Private Island. White sands, limestone cliffs – South Pacific paradise. All offer peace and quiet and incredible service, and at a cost. But if cost isn’t a major issue, these are among the best destinations in all of Asia.
