When we think of wedding shoots, the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) and the Singapore Flyer are surely the two most popular options that come to mind.
Who wouldn’t want a romantic picture with your spouse to be against the Infinity Pool at MBS or with the iconic Ferris wheel in the background?
However, if you are thinking “Meh, not those old boring places again”, don’t worry.
Because we have other equally breath-taking alternative options for you.
Here are some of the top places for your dream Instagram-worthy wedding photos that could give you and your groom/bride-to-be that wow factor. (Why you could even give a certain royal couple a run for their money!)
1. Dempsey Hill
Tucked away in the suburbs near the Botanic Gardens and Orchard Road, this quiet cosy spot makes a great backdrop should you seek a more rustic and old-school feel for your marital photos.
Once home to the British army barracks and the old CMPB national service enlistment centre, Dempsey Hill is richly entrenched with history exhibiting a charming colonial feel.
With its old conservation buildings and rich green scenery surrounding you and your loved one, this photo shoot will make it seem as if both of you have been transported in time.
2. 1 Altitude
Looking for another sky-high location? The Marina Bay Sands doesn’t have to be your only option.
1 Altitude is also another splendid choice.
Located on Level 61 and 62 at One Raffles Place, the swanky bar and restaurant provide lovely panoramic views of Singapore’s cityscape.
Your pictures will look especially gorgeous with the amber hues of the sunset gracing your backdrop. The both of you might even be drawn to hold your wedding party with 1 Altitude offering attractive wedding packages and menu.
3. The Singapore River
Once a ghastly sewage-filled dumping ground, the Singapore River has cleaned up its act to become one of our Little Red Dot’s most dazzling sights.
Whether against the sunny and bright blue silhouette of the day or the sparkling and beautiful indigo blanket of the night, the Singapore River is sure to make your wedding shoot a spectacular one.
Suggested spots for snaps include sitting aboard the Singapore River Boat with the river and cityscape as your backdrop and Clarke Quay with its lively and vibrant nightlife busting behind you.
4. Singapore Botanic Gardens
While the Singapore Botanic Gardens is an ideal dating place for couples love nature, it also makes a wonderful scene for wedding snaps.
Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 74 hectares area possess exotic trees and plants, coupled with a lovely array of colourful flowers, a perfect spot for a romantic pose.
Go to the National Orchid Garden where you can pose with beautiful orchid hybrids and our national flower the Vanda Ms Joaquim.
Or you can go to the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage by the Symphony Lake where you and your spouse-to-be will definitely be in the limelight.
5. Seletar Air Base
Once home to Singapore’s first international airport, Seletar Air Base now serves as a runway for chartered flights and training purposes.
Nestled away in a quiet corner in the northeastern part of the island, the Air Base makes a serene and idyllic place for that beautiful newlywed photo.
Boasting a scenery of majestic old Colonial Houses and modern colossal aircraft and air hangers, this will definitely produce fantastic photos for you and your loved one.
6. Haw Par Villa
More notable for its portrayal for its Chinese mythology and folklore as well as its star attraction, the Court of Ten Hells, Haw Par Villa is probably not your typical wedding shoot.
However, the theme park provides a quirky scene with its numerous range of dioramas and sculptures.
Its intricately crafted architecture will definitely prove an interesting addition to your pre-marital shoots.
7. Fort Canning
Playing an important part in Singapore’ history and a well-known venue for music festivals and concerts, Fort Canning is a place where the old mix with the new.
You can have your fairytale wedding shoots here with its beautifully structured pavilions and lush green gardens as your backdrop.
Recommended photo spots include the gothic gates and sally port as well as the Battle Box and the 9-Pound Cannon, where you and your partner can re-enact historical scenes.
8. Haji Lane
Hidden away in the Bugis area, Haji Lane is Singapore’s original trendy neighbourhood and continues to astound with its stylish and vibrant variety of fashion and food.
It’s not just a place for the young and hip to hang out, it’s also another great location for beautiful wedding shoots.
With its famed wall murals, vibrant street art and chic cafes and bars, it will definitely bring a timelessly fashionable vibe to your wedding photos.
9. Ang Mo Kio/Toa Payoh Playground
Relive some of your childhood memories at Singapore’s iconic playgrounds.
Against the outline of HDB blocks and void decks, this place will bring you and your better half back to the past.
You can also unleash your inner kid by frolicking around the Dragon Playground with your loved one and striking some playful poses.
It also makes a rather unforgettable wedding shoot by marking this exciting new chapter of your life through reminiscing fond memories of the past.
10. Tuas Lalang Field
For couples looking for something artistic, we have just the place for you.
Perhaps more memorable as an industrial estate and checkpoint, the Tuas area also harbours a secret.
The Tuas Lalang Fields is a picturesque place that takes you away from the hassle of the city and allows you to appreciate its quaint charm and beauty.
With the correct angle and poses, your photos will seem like it came straight out of a dreamy romantic scene from Korean dramas.
(Note: should you not like wild grass scratching your legs, be sure to cover those legs!)
