The coral-rimmed island of Pamalican in the Philippines, surrounded by crystal clear water and white sand, offers an idyllic, secluded beachside retreat for a ceremonial wedding blessing. Bahay kubo, Philippine style dwellings, dot the island, each with a beach, hillside or treetop setting. Amanpulo also offers one three-bedroom Villa Home and one four-bedroom Villa Home, both set within lush tropical gardens with easy access to the pristine white sand beach.
A wedding ceremony with a coconut palm arch and aisle adorned with seasonal tropical flowers can be celebrated on the champagne-soft powder beach itself. Local Filipino musicians serenade the couple with traditional guitar and harp music, and poetry is read before the couple exchange vows and rings at sunset. The reception can be held beneath the bougainvillea-laden trellises that overlook the pool, aboard one of Amanpulo’s luxury boats or even in Pamalican Island’s romantic grotto.
