There’s a good reason why the Sacred Heart Parish-Shrine (also known as the Kamuning Church) in Kamuning, Quezon City is one of the most popular churches for weddings and baptismal in Metro Manila. 

That’s because aside from its quaint beauty, the Sacred Heart Parish-Shrine’s location is ideal for solemn ceremonies. It’s surrounded by trees and it’s not in a busy street, which is ideal for you if you don’t like noises and distractions when your rites are ongoing.

    My experience in visiting the Sacred Heart Parish Church


    The only time when Khris and I have been to the Sacred Heart Parish Church was when we were looking for churches in 2013 for our wedding the following year. It was just a random visit since our plans were not yet ironed out; we only searched for a list of churches in Quezon City.

    However, we fell in love with Sacred Heart Parish Church that we strongly considered for our wedding. It was in a quiet neighborhood, there were trees surrounding it, and the front yard was spacious.

    The Sacred Heart Parish Church wasn’t even a Spanish-era building, it was completed only in 1941, but it was still attractive, nonetheless.

    The interiors of the baroque Sacred Heart Parish Church looked cavernous and grand, it had all that it takes to make one’s dream fairytale wedding come true. What’s also good about this church is that the stained-glass windows are big, almost floor to ceiling, so the interiors are bathed with natural light on a sunny day.

    The altar, meanwhile, features intricate details that are similar to what we see in other Spanish-era churches.
