There are a few things to discuss with the Priest before your wedding date can be confirmed at a church, so make contact sooner rather than later to ensure you can synchronise the date with your reception venue.
Churches in Tagaytay can become booked up for weddings several months in advance, or there could be other things happening like community events at the church on or around your preferred date.
Caleruega Church is very conducive for wedding ceremonies. Beautiful European-inspired architecture, cobblestone or brick steps, cool breeze, set on a hilltop, with a fantastic view of Mt. Batulao as well as the hillocks of Tuy and Nasugbu – and the words “picturesque”, “solemn”, “quiet”, and “breathtaking” come to mind. These descriptions spill over into the interiors, whose seating capacity of only about 150-200 lends an air of intimacy to any ceremony. The grounds’ lush landscaping and outdoor décor also provide fantastic photo ops, whether pre- or post-nuptial.
Location: Nasugbu, Bantangas
Chapel on the Hill
Chapel on the Hill is about a two-hour drive from Metro Manila via Tagaytay City. At Tagaytay City, turn right to Nasugbu, and at the welcome arch, turn left to Evercrest Hotel and Resort. Road signs will lead to the site which is about a kilometer away. The church uses the same main gate entrance as another favorite wedding venue, the Transfiguration Chapel of Caleruega.
San Antonio de Padua Batulao
One up-and-rising star is this wedding church in Batulao, the San Antonio de Padua Church. It easily meet the needs of couples who are looking for a little bit of wanderlust without long hours of drive to reach the ceremony.
As you drive towards the church’s main entrance, the well-manicured landscape welcomes and prepares you for the quaintness of the place. The floors are made of marble, with the aisle specifically showcasing intricate patterns of oranges, reds, and dark greens, finally leading to a gilded altar featuring the parish’s patron saint.
Truly, the church’s quaintness adds to the romantic atmosphere of a countryside wedding.

Madre de Dios
The chapel, if not for the cross atop a small tower, would seem to be like a big modern house to some, with its rust-orange Spanish tiled-roof and white stucco walls giving off a Mediterranean atmosphere. The chapel itself can accommodate about 200 people, with wide windows at the sides providing more than enough light for its clean and simply elegant interiors. Inside, the dark wood of the doors and beams are stark contrast to the cream-colored walls, while stained glass windows filter the sun’s rays for that wonderful splash of color. A portico serves as driveway at the entrance, with a few steps leading up to the door. The aisle may be short according to some people’s standards, though. Still, the serenity of the surroundings guarantees a solemn wedding ceremony, with one side facing picturesque Taal Lake. Beside it, a small garden dotted with evergreens is perfect for on-the-spot pictorials.

St. Benedict Church
Everyone who lays eyes on the church fall in love with the marvelous architecture. Inside, the white walls, high ceiling, tall arches that surround the aisle, ceiling arches, and arched wood boards project a grand feeling.
