photoblog image Wedding at San Agustin

Wedding at San Agustin

This church has been the site of Spanish surrender of Manila to the United States of America and was turned into a concentration camp for prisoners during WWII. It has seen bombardment of the Intramuros and withstood earthquakes. Today it is a popular venue for weddings. A happy couple tied the knot, smiled for the multitude of cameras and released a couple of doves at the entrance.


Also seen at the left side are some of the fourteen side chapels on both sides.

What a history for this cool wedding venue.
It is very ornate and it is hard to imagine it being a concentration camp.
Looks an interesting place to visit Ayush well captured.
What I wouldn't give to visit this wonderful building Ayush, and you were so lucky to get this wedding going on at the same time.
Fantastic perspective and treatment Ayush.
You found yourself a great viewpoint, Ayush!
So nice to see that this magnificent church has left its sad past behind and is now being used for more happier events. Your vantage point was perfect for this encompassing shot, Ayush.
Excellent point of view on this wonderful Cathedral Ayush!
Really grand setting, captured very well.
