Here the 5 favorite locations in Singapore that many couples go to for their pre-wedding as well as their actual day wedding photo shoot. Some of these recommendations are provided by photographers such as Guan Hui from famous Bloc Memoire as well as Alvin, the founder of the now equally famous Grandeur Wedding Studio.
- Hort Park
An equally hot favorite for pre-wedding photography in Singapore as well as for couples having their actual wedding day ceremony, Hort Park provides a great backdrop for couples to use for their wedding photographs. With lots of flora around the entire place, as well as its convenient location in central of Singapore, Hort Park is a hot favorite for both couples with cars and without cars.
- Gardens By The Bay
Although this place has become a bit cliche as many couples are going there for their wedding photography, it’s still a gorgeous place. In fact, it’s one of the best places in Singapore you can possibly go to take photographs at for your bridal shoot because it is so unique looking. Despite located less than 1 km away from the city, it feels so unique and looks like a beautiful alien city in Singapore.
- Fullerton Bay Hotel
Look at the photograph – just look at it.
Can you believe that’s taken in Singapore? It’s a beautiful place, where it’s also sparsely populated. This means that it will be easy for your wedding photographer to capture an absolutely amazing and gorgeous wedding photograph at the Fullerton Bay Hotel for you and your spouse. It looks gorgeous. It’s a must go place if you plan to hold your wedding or take your pre-wedding photography in Singapore.
- Botanic Gardens
Did you really think I’m not going to mention it? Botanic Garden is a UNESCO Heritage site, and it certainly deserves the name in Asia. Botanic Gardens of Singapore is definitely one of the most beautiful and amazing spots for weddings as well as couple photoshoots in Singapore. It’s a must go to location for couples of all age and religion and race.
- Marina Bay Sands Wedding Ballroom
This is for couples looking for inspiration for actual day wedding ceremony locations. Got a ton of money? Got a ton of friends? Then Marina Bay Sands Wedding Ballroom is definitely the best fit for you. Commonly used for conventions and extremely large and posh events, this is the place to go if you want the grandest looking wedding ceremony in Singapore.
A wedding photo shoot cannot do without a gorgeous wedding gown. That’s the unspoken standard these days. Every brides in Singapore dream of wearing their wedding gown to wedding photo and video shoots, as well as to the wedding banquets to captivate the guests. When people think of brides in a wedding photo or video shoot, the first image of the bride will be her wearing a wedding gown.
There are two options to getting a wedding gown in Singapore – you will either buy it or rent it. I will highly suggest a local wedding gown rental Singapore instead of a purchase. The very practical reason is that you will only be wearing the wedding gown once in your life and it is not wise spending a bomb on it and then putting the gown aside in your wardrobe for years.
When you are renting a wedding gown, you most probably will be spoil for choice. In huge wedding gown rental boutiques such as Grandeur Wedding Studio or Dream Wedding, you will be exposed to thousands of wedding gowns, with different designs, colors, and sizes. A woman can probably spend the entire afternoon in there trying out the wedding gowns.
Apart from your main taste and preferences, you should consult the wedding photographer on his professional opinions too. Why so?
It is very important for the wedding gown to suit the locations and lightnings which you will be holding your wedding photo shoot at. For example, if you are shooting in a place with dark backgrounds and/or dim lights, it is better to wear light colored wedding gowns such as white and yellow gowns. If you are shooting in a place with bright backgrounds and/or bright lights, it is better to wear dark colored wedding gowns such as blue gowns. Contrast is very important in photographs to make objects stand out. Of course, make one of your wedding gown a classic white one. As for the other colors of your wedding gowns, perhaps it is better to listen to the advice of your wedding photographer.
Here are some of the most mystical looking places in Singapore that you can go to for your wedding photography Singapore (Check out http://www.grandeurweddingstudio.com/photography-singapore if you need a good wedding photography studio in Singapore).
A. Upper Seletar Reservoir
One of the most scenic places on a clear day, Upper Seletar Reservoir is a hot favorite among couples who like taking their bridal pictures with nature as the backdrop. It is a truly amazing looking and serene place for wedding photography in Singapore.
In my opinion, it is one of the largest areas in Singapore where you cannot see any buildings even in the horizon. This is hard to find in such a city like Singapore where everywhere has high rise buildings as well as people. There are not many people at Upper Seletar Reservoir in Singapore too because it is extremely inconvenient unless you had a private car transport.
B. Sentosa Beaches
Sentosa beaches are well-known for its wild parties, but it’s also a fantastic place and location for couples to get their pre-wedding photography session at! Look at how pretty Sentosa can be at night. Most couples take pre-wedding photos on Sentosa beaches in the day but some of them hold outdoor wedding dinners on the beaches and it can be a really exhilarating experience due to the sound of the sea hitting lightly against the soft sand with peace and serenity everywhere.
C. Hort Park
Full of beauty nature backdrops, Hort Park is the park version of Upper Seletar Reservoir. Both of them have the same feeling in that you cannot see most urban developments when there, but Hort Park obviously has many more trees and flora whereas Upper Seletar Reservoir is better for open-spaces.
Even though most couples in Singapore associate Tuas with industrial developments and oil companies, that is not the whole truth. There are beautiful places of nature in the extreme West end of Singapore – Tuas. I assure you there is no other place in Singapore like Tuas if you love the open field concept of wedding photographs.
The above are truly beautiful places in Singapore you and your fiance should explore for your wedding photo shoot. Most people overlook these places and flock to popular ones such as Marina Bay Sands or Gardens by the Bay. Instead, you should opt for such places to make your wedding photos look more unique and perhaps even more stunning!
Check out this very beautiful wedding photo by 2 of Us Photography.
Personally, I think it looks like a wonderful image. (Although I have to admit that I prefer the overall setting and soft lighting created by the talented wedding photographer at 2 of Us photography over the spinning bride. I feel that the picture might look much more beautiful if the bride and groom had just been holding a stationary position or of them gazing into each others’ eyes.
However, other than that, i think it evokes a sense of amazement and beauty in my opinion. What do you think?
Now, let’s move on to a picture by Grandeur Wedding. I love this image because it looks so natural – it is a case where the bride is simply overwhelmed by the emotions of the wedding that she’s crying because she’s so touched. I think it’s a photograph taken during the actual day of the ceremony where they are on stage and the groom is probably telling everyone the story of how they met or how much he loves her.
This is another picture, although I’m not sure who took this image.
I think this image looks really cool. I am not sure who took this image but I think it looks really pretty. I like pictures of couples against the nature because it feels very natural. This is especially nice because the couple has a very smile and pose and it almost looks as though the wedding image was taken mid action while the couple was talking to each other.
Altogether, I like ‘real’ looking wedding photographs. I feel that such images convey a lot more emotions than a simple posed one.
I always advocate taking outdoor wedding photography when it comes to pre-wedding photo shoots, and getting an actual day wedding photographer whose portfolio is full of images which looks natural and beautiful.
