I love weddings! But it has been 6 years since I was updated with the latest wedding trends and suppliers. That was the year of my own wedding of course. But a few years after my wedding, I kind of lost track of the wedding fab, especially when I had to start focusing on something else. Like baby stuff hehehe. Anyway, a few months ago, a friend of mine got married at Mango Farm in Antipolo. It was my first time there. And I thought the place was beautiful!
Mango Tree Farm is perfect for garden weddings. This is the entrance to the ceremony. So simple but very beautiful! I love the way the tree shadows reflect on this beautiful entrance. (The time of my friend's wedding was in the afternoon. I think it was around 3pm? And I don't recall getting bitten by any mosquitoes while w were there. So that's a big plus.)
Step through the entrance and this ceremony area will greet you. It's breath taking! I love it because it seems like a destination wedding, but really it's just located in lower Antipolo City. Just an hour or so drive from the metro.
Simply rustic and beautiful and so close to nature! I love the chandelier touch in an outdoor setting!
It was a refreshing feeling being surrounded by beautiful mango trees during the wedding ceremony.
Here comes the bride! Mango Farm uses burlap / jute sack instead of the usual red carpet. I liked it!
It was such a relaxing wedding. The number of guests were just right. It was actually quite intimate.
The photo booth
Love the vintage bikes situated near the reception hall.
The place is huge and so serene. It's also quite cool I guess because of all the oxygen from the trees all around. Very refreshing.
Right after the moving ceremony, it started getting dark, so Mango Farm turned on their night lights. And just like that, it seemed like the place was transformed into a whole different place. So it was selfie time again with my friends against the Mango Farm night lights!
Can I just rant for a bit?... Thank you!
This mommy weight thing makes it really hard for me to buy dresses that fit me well. I will either look like a wrapped rice cake, or a tent. That's why if you will notice, I almost always wear the same dress for formal events. This sheer floral dress in the picture is one of my favorites. I wore it numerous times already. (It's hard being a woman! You can't wear the same dress over and over. Guys are lucky. Darn.) So if anyone out there has any fashion tips for moms, please fire away! There are a lot of nice skirts and dresses I saw online at Zalora. I hope soon I'll be able to rock one of those ha ha ha! I miss my wedding weeeeight!!!! :-(
Anyway, enough ranting! Back to Mango Tree Farm...
This is the Mango Tree Farm's Pavillion. Just a few steps away from the garden where the ceremony was held.
It can fit up to 250 guests. That's a lot!
So that's it! Not that I'm an expert or anything but I would recommend Mango Tree Farm to engaged couples out there. It's very nice, a bit far from civilization but not too far that it becomes a hassle to go to. The location is just right. And they already have venue and catering packages you can avail to make your wedding planning easier, thus avoiding summoning the bridezilla within. Hahaha!
Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. R for allowing me to write about your wedding! ;-) For more details on rates and packages, you can check Mango Farm's official website and follow them on facebook.
