Weddings at The Peninsula

This year marks 42 years since The Peninsula Manila hosted its first wedding reception. To celebrate this milestone event, the hotel is partnering with industry leader Rita Neri Event Planners, in addition to other inspiring leaders from the Philippine wedding industry, for a special event: Weddings at The Peninsula 2018 that will be taking place on June 9, 2018, Saturday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Planning a wedding is incredibly exciting, but can also feel like a mammoth task at times. The Peninsula Manila and Rita Neri Event Planners aim to remove some of the perceived challenges faced by couples through inviting them to meet with a curated range of exclusive professionals from the wedding industry in one location. Those attending the event will have the chance to peruse a range of wedding essentials, each one chosen for their signature Peninsula style and savoir faire – from tabletop decorations, wedding cakes and flowers, to bridal gowns, limousines and helicopters, and honeymoons.

The love affair begins at The Lobby, where the grand staircase will be garlanded with masses of flowers. Collaborating with two renowned floral artists – Teddy Manuel and Zenas Pineda – The Peninsula Manila Creative Director, Anna Fay Rosal, promises that their floral installations, with hundreds upon hundreds of blooms, will be a sight to behold.

The Conservatory will feature a carefully selected gathering of the country’s most exclusive wedding suppliers, whose vetted services and seasoned advice are an invaluable resource when planning one of the most important moments in a couple’s life.
