Villa Milagros Mansion and Gardens is the premiere wedding venue and events venue in the Philippines today. A former ancestral house of the Liamzon family, this beautiful mansion is now your best place to create happy memories like weddings, debuts, and other functions.
In 1965, businessman Isidoro Buenviaje Liamzon gifted his wife Ma. Milagros Manahan Liamzon with a special present for their 35th wedding anniversary: a two-story, five-bedroom, mid-century classical revival mansion with outdoor terraces, sprawling gardens, a magnificent driveway, a dramatic spiral staircase, a library, and even a mirador (watch tower) from which one can view the Sierra Madre Mountains.
Christened Villa Milagros, it became the rest house of the Liamzon couple and their 11 children (three sons and eight daughters) whose city residence was in New Manila. Eventually, Villa Milagros also became the vacation home of the extended Liamzon family that included 34 grandchildren.
Through the years, the Liamzon children maintained the mansion and its fine architecture and opulent interiors (which, among others, comprised of furniture from Europe, porcelain chandeliers and wall lamps from Spain, custom-made furniture by the House of Puyat and an authentic Steinway piano).
In 2015, Villa Milagros underwent a major restoration. An exterior walkway was built around the mansion to provide a path to appreciate the unique façade and gardens. The driveway was refurbished to highlight the mirador tower. Custom-made Machuca tiles replaced the old concrete flooring of the portico. The main hallway was spruced up with a new marble medallion that mirrors the lobby’s oval shape. The masters’ bedroom was updated to modern classic interiors and aptly renamed the Milagros Suite. The Villa’s old pavilion was also made into The North Wing, the six-meter ceilinged banquets hall that looks and feels like the mansion.
Yet the best part of the restoration was that the Liamzons opened Villa Milagros to the public as a venue for special occasions such as parties, birthdays, weddings, launches, and get-togethers.
“We wish to share with people the beauty and soul of our family home. Our sprawling venue provides the perfect setting not only for weddings and events, but also for themed shoots and media features. We would be more than happy to host their next special event or milestone.” – granddaughter of Isidoro and Milagros and Villa Milagros Manager Andrea Liamzon
Whether it is a wedding, an engagement shoot, or a music video, the Villa’s classic, elegant and timeless look can match your desired theme. Since every event or shoot is different, we work with our clients to make optimum use of our property.
Villa Milagros’ two outdoor gardens, Delia’s Garden and Cristina’s Garden, can serve as special events venues for crowds larger than 100. Both gardens are fully-landscaped and have spectacular views of The Mansion. Each garden has its own Terrace—tiled areas that are perfect extensions to your chosen garden venue. Delia’s Garden can host up to 250 guests; while Cristina’s Garden can host up to 150.
Built in the same style and spirit of The Mansion, The North Wing serves as an extension of the Liamzon family home. The North Wing is an all-weather events hall that can fit up to 300 guests. It is fully air-conditioned and has opulent crystal chandeliers and a 6-meter high ceiling that give the feeling of grandeur. Our premier hall also comes with spectacular views of both the Mansion and Gardens.
For smaller and more intimate events, consider The Liamzon Hall—the oval-shaped hall that serves as the heart of The Mansion. This air-conditioned hall is flanked by beautiful outdoor terraces on each side that is visible through floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Its maximum capacity is 45.
In keeping with their mission to “create timeless memories” for their guests, Villa Milagros works with caterer Banquets by VS&F to bring exquisite meals that go perfectly with the picturesque setting. (Villa Milagros is open to working with other caterers as well.)
One of the most successful Filipino catering companies, VS&F began more than 30 years ago by delivering packed lunches to malls and offices until it grew into a full-service catering business, which is well-known for its delicious food. Among its exceptional dishes are Chicken Teriyaki, Lengua with Mushrom Gravy, Buco Pandan, and Tempura.
Exposure to European cuisine motivated owner Joyce Abesamis to manage a subsidiary of VS&F, one that is focused on contemporary catering. Thus, Banquets by VS&F was born out of Joyce’s desire to bring innovative and luxurious culinary styles and concepts to the celebration scene in Metro Manila. The spread prepared by Banquets by VS&F would have more current fare such as Watermelon and Feta Skewers, Cajun Shrimp and Mango Salad, Carpaccio or Cheese Platter. Joyce’s concoctions provide a novel twist to traditional festivities, making the events more remarkable and extraordinary for the guests.
Banquets by VS&F is client-centered, accepting only 1 event per day to make sure that their team is full force towards customer satisfaction. Always with personal touch, Joyce personally handles the clients of from booking, food tasting, event proper, and post event discussions.
True to its being a contemporary catering company, Banquets by VS&F also has its in-house stylist, Project Events MNL, which focuses on clean, elegant, and timeless set-ups. Whether it is a black-and-white theme for a wedding or a military-inspired set-up for a baby girl’s first birthday or a chic presentation for an intimate get-together, trust Banquets by VS&F to pull out all the stops in order to deliver the client’s dream party.
The combination of a charming family tradition and romantic environment, coupled with great food and personalized service, has made Villa Milagros a top choice for pre-nup pictorials, weddings and celebrations. Mr. Isidoro Liamzon’s gift to his beloved Milagros has now become a gift to the world: a beloved event venue where one can make their own memorable moments.
