9 Modern Churches in the Metro for your Dream Church Wedding

To have a church wedding is a dream come true for many couples. Aside from tradition, it’s also about basking in the solemn presence inside the church with your loved ones. While centuries-old grand churches dominate the architectural tradition in the Philippines, modernist churches step out of the norm while still keeping faith at the center of their structure. 

With that said, here are nine modern churches perfect for the wedding of your dreams:

1. St. Andrew the Apostle Parish

The St. Andrew the Apostle Parish was built around the 1960s by National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsin. It was the artist’s second circular church, the first one being the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice in the University of the Philippines – Diliman Campus. Its butterfly floor plan commemorates how St. Andrew the Apostle was crucified on an X-shaped cross.
