Makati Shangri-La treated the country’s authorities in weddings and celebrations to an intimate afternoon to celebrate the artisans who work hard to give every bride and groom an experience that’s utterly unforgettable. The event was held last February 20 with a Chinoiserie-themed afternoon affair.

Makati Shangri-La, Manila is well-known for its majestic ballrooms and exceptional culinary offerings, making it an outstanding location for a once in a lifetime moment of exchanging vows, and memorable wedding receptions.

While Makati Shangri-La remains to be the top choice of venue when it comes to grand wedding celebrations, it continues to innovate and introduce new levels of luxury for its clients. As part of the new bridal offers, Makati Shangri-La is officially in partnership with event designer Robert Blancaflor, one of the country’s renowned event stylist.

The hotel prides itself with the signature Shangri-La service, with a heart that pays attention to every bride and groom’s wants and needs. The journey begins with a dedicated events manager who ensures that each request is delivered and every detail—from the choice of linen and dinner service to the name cards and floral arrangements—are executed flawlessly.

Event guests also got a taste of the #MakatiShangExperience with the help of Moët & Chandon, the perfect luxurious drink for your wedding toast.
