Welcome to Blue Gardens, a breathtaking event venue in Manila whose main attractions are immaculately maintained French gardens that hearken back to the days of European royalty. There is something truly magical about stately gardens that just takes people away and makes them feel like kings and queens, to the days when men were knights and women were ladies, when romance meant the world, and genteel living was the order of the day. At Blue Gardens, our garden wedding venue in Manila brings the romance of France directly to Manila, creating an irresistible atmosphere of love and ebullient joy. These delicately manicured gardens make Blue Gardens an unforgettable venue for dream weddings, elegant debuts, magical promenades, and birthdays that call for that extra-special touch of refinement and class.
Situated in the heart of Manila, Blue Gardens offer two beautiful garden event venues to please and delight celebrants and events organizers. When our garden venue in Manila for weddings and birthdays first began, we simply had one venue, now known as the Upper Gardens, breathtaking in design and wondrous in scope: with the ornate carvings and old world-charm of its stone wall entrance gate, 17th century-inspired stone pillars, and fish fountain, the original Blue Gardens offered guests an old-world charm that brought them back to Manila’s glory days, albeit with the romance and je ne sais quoi of French culture.
Today, Blue Gardens has birthed an additional garden venue in the Philippines that, dare we say, is even more delightful than our first. Known as the Jardin del Amour, or “garden of love” in French, this garden wedding venue in Manila is adjacent to our original gardens. In addition to the very first French garden of Blue Gardens, the Chateau has since been renovated; its grander size and more elegant detailing are complemented and highlighted by an even higher ceiling. Imagine making your grand entrance as husband and wife in this regal garden wedding venue in Manila; listen to the gasps of wonderment as you step out for your first debutante dance; delight in the laughter and mirth of family and friends as you celebrate yet another birthday; enjoy the romantic or friendly yet bittersweet moments as you bid your friends a fond farewell in your final prom. Our garden venue in Manila promises to make your special event truly, truly special.
Located along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, Blue Gardens is located a few minutes away from many of Manila’s finest churches, including Ateneo de Manila’s Church of the Gesu, the Iglesia Ni Cristo church, St. Peter’s Cathedral, and the University of the Philippines Diliman’s Church of the Parish of the Holy Sacrifice. It is also conveniently near key malls like SM City Fairview or SM City North EDSA, hotels like the EDSA Shangri-la, the Microtel by Wyndham, or the Sulo Riviera; hospitals like General Malvar Hospital, New Era Hospital, or Diliman Doctors Hospital; and charming tourist spots like La Mesa Eco Park and Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center, ensuring that guests will never worry for whatever needs or desires they may have.
Event organizers and celebrants will delight in the ease of arrival of their guests and the spacious parking afforded by the new parking facility of Blue Gardens. Why have your guests travel out of Manila to experience a wedding in a world-class garden, when you can welcome them to a garden wedding venue in Manila at Blue Gardens? Why fret about the cost of having your guests travel to garden wedding venues in the Philippines’ far-off places or out of the country–like France!–when they can travel to a garden wedding venue in Manila, right here?

Blue Garden’s Upper Gardens are truly a sight to behold. An ornate stone wall entrance welcomes you into the venue, with breathtaking pillars inspired by the grand gates of 17th-century Chateau de Brecy setting an atmosphere of pomp and circumstance. Inspired by the legendary French castle of Versailles, a pristine gazebo is framed by lush garden foliage, surrounded by a cobblestone path that hearkens back to they roal days of yore. More than 350 guests will enjoy your special event at the Upper Gardens, which also boast of a grand staircase that offers celebrants a majestic view of the event facility, and provides little details ideal for that perfect photograph, including white vine-kissed lattices, ornamental bicycles, and antique bird cage chairs. A bubbling fountain smoothes your stress away, while migratory birds and butterflies add an additional touch of nature to your event.
The European-inspired Chateal Hall, which is adjacent to the garden, is a Manila event facility that may be booked separately from the Upper Gardens. The lobby of this elegant wedding venue in Manila will welcome guests into a hall designed to take their breath away while you prepare for your special day in our Bridal Room, Entourage Room, and Groom’s Room. Imagine making your grand entrance from the bridal room, down our long, elegant grand staircase, towards the stage, all eyes on you. It will be incredible.
The stunning 40-foot-high ceiling of this garden wedding event in Manila is elegantly accentuated with custom iron-wrought chandeliers, a gold-gilded mirror, and garden-themed floor tiles that evoke memories of nostalgic Normandy. This old-world charm carries over into the men’s and ladies’ rest rooms, where little details are designed to delight and catch one’s eye.
Jardin Del Amour
Inspired by the romantic old-world charm of the Italian town of Verona, the setting of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Jardin Del Amour takes its name from the Italian phrase for “garden of love,” and is inspired to deliver on its promise of romance in every way. A garden wonderland of evergreens and trees direct the eye to the centerpiece of Jardin Del Amour, a carved fountain framed by flowers and trees. A transparent cover protects the garden from the elements, ensuring your event will not be affected by inclement weather, and your special event will push through, rain or shine. The Jardin Del Amour also comes with a fully air-conditioned bridal suite and parking facilities for the convenience of your guests.
