The Wedding at San Agustin Church

San Agustin Church is dubbed as the Wedding Capital of the Philippines.

After touring Intramuros and having lunch at Ristorante delle Mitre, we passed by in front of San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the Philippines. But something caught my attention that moment that made me pause and go nearer the old church. A number of onlookers, foreigners and locals, are huddled right outside its huge wooden doors. Something's going on.

The next second, a shiny white car with white flowers in front came into the picture. It stopped just right outside the doors of San Agustin Church. I knew it!

Someone's getting married today.

Here comes the bride...
The back door of the shiny white car suddenly opened. And then a beautiful chinita girl dressed in a magnificent-looking gown stood up. She looked trembling! She was aware that all eyes were upon her that moment. But she still looked amazing!

The groom, indeed, made the right choice.


And then, as if she had rehearsed for this a long long time ago. She took her post right outside the big wooden doors of the old church. Eyes and cameras were all focused on her.


Upon the signal of the over-all coordinator, two men stood beside her and pushed the wooden doors open. And then...

Off she went...

It was a lovely event that capped our Intramuros tour!
