Suggested Prenup Location For Philippine-Based Couples

Here’s a list of  locations that you can use for your prenup shoot. This list isn’t my own though. I just compiled them from the Weddings@Work forum.

1.) UP Diliman – open university for all. Shoot in the Sunken Garden or any of the buildings. Shooting inside the buildings itself will require you to secure a permit though.

2.) La Mesa Eco Park – for all the greens. Permission needed from their office via written letter but the fee is just the regular entrance fee.

3.) Pan de Amerikana (in Marikina) – known for the giant chess pieces (life-size!) and the vintage 1950’s American look. Contact them via their multiply: http://pandeamerikana.multiply.com/

4.) Sunken Garden Muntinlupa- World War 2 vintage artifacts, scenery is all grass and hills

5.) Firing Range Bilibid Prisons Muntinlupa

6.) Jardin de Padre Blanco in Intramuros-Period turn of the Century Setting

7.) Pugad Lawin Villamor Airbase and Golf Club

8.) Villamor Airbase Open Air Museum- vintage planes

9.) San Juan Vintage Car Museum

10.) Lakeshore Pampanga – 2,000 pesos for a Prenup shoot, inclusive of 500 pesos consumable food (At their resto), use the entire facility like Lake, Island, Bike and boat ride, lighthouse access and most of all… You can shoot. (Thought entrance is free, but you will be prohibited to shoot, even if for personal use).

11.) There’s also this really old church in Boso-Boso in Antipolo.

Outside of the box; anywhere there is a street tiangge.

12.) Corregidor — World War II ruins, relics (especially the giant cannons) and monuments; http://www.corregidorphilippines.com

13.) bonifacio high street – just get a permission from their head office. the fee is 2k or 3k. not really sure

14.) greenbelt(ayala) – just get a permission from their head office

15.) Quezon City Circle – For nature lovers and street photography type. They already renovated the place.

16.) Parks and Wildlife sa Quezon City – Di ko lang alam kung kailangan ng permit.

17.) American War Memorial – Fort Bonifacio

18.) Paco Park – Haven’t tried yet, but i heard kailangan ng permit

19.) Libingan ng mga bayani – Fort Bonifacio

20.) UST- Manila

21.) Island Cove, Cavite

22.) Fort Santiago (pag pre-nup may bayad…)

23.) Hacienda Luisita – Tarlac…

24.) Tres Escalon- Taytay Rizal

25.) UP Los Baños – same as in UP Diliman…anywhere, anytime.

26.) Makiling Botanic Gardens – inside UPLB…sa Forestry…10php for non UP students 6 php pag UP student..no need for a permit…

27.) The Orchidarium and Butterfly Pavilion – Rizal Park Manila

28.) Weekend Markets at QC Lung Center and Legazpi Makati

29.) Hinulugang Taktak-Antipolo City

31. BIAK NA BATO – san miguel bulacan

32. MOA – San miguel drive..maganda magshoot ng sunset dito.. =)

33. Serendra – the fort

34. Tagaytay – Taal Volcano, picnic grove, palace in the sky, any view spots

35.  River Banks, Marikina

36. Harbor Bay, CCP area,

37. Baywalk

38. Rajah Sulayman Park, Malate Church – free for all.

39.  Wawa Dam

40. Anawagin, Zambales

42. Intramuros Church and immediate surroundings – if you like the old Spanish architecture

Intramuros – 2K fee plus you have to secure a permit from the Intramuros

Admin

RCBC Building, Ayala Ave – you need to write a letter to the general manager. I don’t think there’s a fee

Central Post Office – secure a permit from the Postmaster General.Tingin ko minimal lang ang fee if there is one. This is a good place to have a Grecian style prenup, maganda ang columns nila eh.

Venice Piazza – at McKinley Hill. permit din ang kelangan

Boni High Street – I think me bayad dito, 2.5K, if I’m not mistaken.

Manila Hotel Champagne Room – For a victorian style prenup.

Harbour Square – free of charge. just be discrete (read: only 1-2 photogs. if more than that the guards usually tells you that you need to secure a permit na)

    1. Hi Erix,

      I think meron. but very minimal lang siguro kasi the rent of their hall is just 5K good for 200 pax na yun. siguro naman cheaper ang prenup rates nila. here’s some info that I got.

      You may want to check out this photos for inspiration:

    1. Hi Jae,

      I’m sorry but I also don’t know. I just compiled this list from the forum that I am a part of. I asked around but no one has responded yet. I’ll update you if ever somebody responds to my question.

    1. Hi Cheryl! I don’t know exactly where in Quezon City they’re located. I suggest you call them up at this number for directions on how to go to their place: (02) 9286093

  1. Hi everyone, we’re going to have our prenup this coming sunday Nov. 27, 2011. Just wanted to ask you guys if you have an idea if do we still need get a permit to shoot at MOA? Thank you so much in advance and hope to hear your response before the week ends.

    glen

    1. Hi Glen. From what I know if within the grounds of MOA yung shoot and masyadong obvious that you are having one, you’ll need to secure a permit and you also have to pay a fee. Ask ka na lang sa office ng SM for further details. Good luck on your prenup shoot :)

      1. Thanks Micah for your immediate response. Dun sana kami sa likod ng MOA yung sa childrens playground dun at zip line ng mga 8AM. Sorry but I don’t have any idea kasi kung ano yung mga ginagamit ng isang photographer during prenup shoot, aside from camera. I don’t know if it’s going to be obvious. Please advise… :)

      2. If doon sa SMB by the Bay pwede yata na wala ng fee. Just be discreet about the shoot. Ito yung mga signs na obvious na you’re doing a prenup shoot at baka sitahin kayo ng guard and hanapan ng permit.

        1. if you have 2 or more photographer plus lightsman
        2. if you’re fully made-up and glammed up
        3. if mukhang pro yung gamit ng photog niyo like maraming equipments na dala (diff lenses, tripod, lighting equipment, flash)

        kahit sa baywalk area and PICC grounds na free ang photoshoot sinisita na rin if obvious masyado.

        If simple lang naman ang concept niyo, just wear casual clothes tapos kahit one photog lang tapos kwentuhan lang kayo na parang friends para pag tinanong kayo just say na nag-pi-picture lang kayo and hindi professional shoot yun. I don’t know if that’ll work though ;)

  2. please do you have any idea if there’s any pre nup fee in Pan de Amerikana in Marikina?? please let me know.. and if you know their email address do send it to me please.. we’re currently working abroad and were looking for a place for a good shoot when we get home.. Thank you

    1. Hi Kristine,

      I called Pan De Amerikana few months ago to ask their permission to have a prenup shoot to their place, and the manager said it’s okay there’s no need for permit. But they don’t entertain such activities during weekends. Hope this will help :)

  3. Hi everyone, anyone know the process on how to get a permit at intramuros for prenup pictorial? Or does anyone know the contact details (telephone/mobile nos, email or address) of intramuros admin to get the permit? Thanks

  4. hi everyone do you know how much will it cost to rent a yacht for a pre nup photoshoot in subic bay.. if yes how much and do you have any contact numbers thanks in advance

  5. did any of you know what permits needed to accomplish for pre nup in Biak na Bato? do they charge fees and how much would it be? thanks!

  6. Am based in Dubai and am travelling tp philiphines for my pre nups what the best single location to shoot…especially if I want to combine beach theme and nature..

    Kindest regards

    Solomon

    1. Hi Solomon. I suggest you have your prenup shoot in a beach resort or the likes. We have a lot of beautiful resorts in the Batangas area. It’s very near Manila, just an hour or 2 away from the airport. You can check Acuatico Beach Resort or Punta Fuego. Both have websites, just google them up. Or another good but farther option is Anvaya Cove, it has a website too plus it’s an exclusive and private resort.

  7. Hi, do you know kung may bayad mag pre nup sa Sunken Garden Muntinlupa? And also if they have contact number?

    Thanks.

    1. Permit is not required to have a photoshoot in the UP Diliman campus. But if you will enter any of the buildings, you have to secure a permit.

  8. Hi there!!!
    I want to have a pre-nup on Corregidor Bataan but I inquire on CCP Bay terminal and they only have a tour package on their ferries going to Bataan and its very costly. Can u help me find a cheaper ferry going to Bataan. I also inquire on Supercat ferry but they are no longer operational. I’m going to have a pre-nup on 13th of May.
    Thanks and God bless!!!

    1. Hi glenn! I gather you want some place that speaks nature? I think La Mesa Ecopark in QC will be a good and cheap venue. You may also do your prenup in UP Diliman grounds. Basta any place with a lot of greenery or yung medyo woods yung feel :)

  9. Hi.. super thanks for this, I’ve been stressing myself in searching for venues for my sister’s pre debut.. can you suggest places where we can shoot which has both indoor and out door appeal? With the weather being so erratic recently, we don’t want to risk not being prepared.. thanks so much! Just to add information I was able to call pan de amerikana katipunan branch, they allow pictorials during 8-10am and 2-5pm..no charge so long as no electricity will be consumed…thanks!!

  10. Hi Micah.. salamat sa blog na ‘to.. a friend asked me to do her prenup at nakakuha ako ng idea dito kung san maganda.. ask ko lang po kung sa intramuros po ba kailangan pa ng permit or bayad? wala pa din kasi kami particular place sa intramuros kung san nila gusto.. di naman po ako professional nor freelance.. first time ko lang po ‘to ita-try mag-shoot.. thanks much :))

    1. Hi Sandy! may permit required sa Intramuros. hindi ko lang sure kung may fee din na kasama pero malamang meron. pinagkakitaan na masyado yung mga ganyang prenup pictorials these days. alam kasi nilang magbabayad yung mga tao. kahit nga photo walk pinagkakakitaan nila which is hobby lang naman ng mga photographers. kahit sa Luneta area may bayad at permit na kailangan eh :(

  11. hi micah! anu b pwede mo irecomend n venue samen for pre nuptial along manila wag lng out of town my wedding is on dec.wla pko nahahanap n venue for this. thanks much..

    1. The Intramuros area is always a good choice. Or Luneta or Baywalk along Roxas Boulevard. Heritage Park is also nice. But if you want a more contemporary vibe, you can have it in Serendra/The Fort

  12. hi. im so happy to read ur article. it was very useful. i would like to ask if you have contact number of serendra/boni hi st. thank u so much…

    god bless.

  13. hi micah,

    i love reading ur blog…very helpful, and full of fresh ideas to me who’s a newbie in my profession , im an event coordinator and designer for a year.

    so happy to crossed on your articles, sometimes i come up to the point that im running out of ideas…

    super thankful :)

    1. Last time I checked walang specific fee for prenup basta you pay the entrance for the number of people who will be with you during the shoot. I don’t know kung anu na policy nila ngayon. I also don’t know if they rent out the place for events. Please inquire with them directly

  14. Hi micah, ask lng po ng suggestion if san maganda magshoot for a seaman wedding, gusto ko sana sa may mga barko :) saka any idea if may permit and magkano ang fee..,

    thanks in advance ;)

    1. You can check out the Manila Yacht Club along Roxas blvd. I’m not sure re permit and fees but I believe you have to be endorsed by a member of the club :)

  15. IMO, Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) is the most ideal out of town location for a prenup shoot. Not only it has a rich green forest as a background but you also have the beautiful blue sea as well.

    Another location in SBFZ that most people don’t know about is the El Kabayo Riding Stable. It is located away from the road, so no motor vehicles to worry about during shoots nor electrical wires hanging above.

    El Kabayo Riding Stable in SBFZ is different from the one located in Clark Freeport Zone (CFZ) in Angeles, Pampanga. Unlike in SBFZ, the one in Clark is located near the road and comparatively small than
    the one in Subic Bay.

    One can also do prenup shoot during visit on other attractions that Subic Bay Freeport Zone offers.

    1. Hi Zazel! Anong specific theme ng wedding mo? Maybe you can try Little Tokyo in Makati. It’s a group of small japanese restaurants located in Makati

  16. Hi Micah. Where is the good place for a touch of winter theme wedding. Since i will be having midnight blue silverish motiff. Thanks.

    1. I suggest getting indoor venues with huge space and high ceiling so that you can really decorate it ala winter. I’d recommend Fernbrook in Alabang or Palacio De Maynila along Roxas Blvd in Malate Manila. You may check out my post about suggested wedding reception venues too :)

  17. Hi,

    I would like to ask is it possible to have a prenup seperately, like the girl is on the top of the mountain and the guy is in the city, it will be based on our long distance relationship. Would that be a yes or a No? Please do help me figure this out. I dnt like the idea, but she likes it since we have a LDR :)

    Many thanks!

    Paul

  18. small world! i happen to bump into your site (again) while looking for prenup locations. this is sooooooo helpful, my dear! kaso lang, i dont like the “fees”/”permits” required for such. Grrrrrrr! hahahaha. Thank you again!

    1. Hi Geralyn. Sorry I have ran out of wedding related ideas already. My creativity is now directed towards home making and marriage related stuff :)
