Singapore is a place that has a little bit of everything – historical architecture, natural oases and a beating urban heart – meaning that no matter how you want to style your wedding photography session, you will find a location that meets all your wildest dreams…
…From quaint churches to lane ways adorned in art, the streets of Singapore blend old and new, meaning you don’t have to decide between the two if you want a little taste of both.
And whether you want to portray sophisticated elegance or bring out your playful inner child, Singapore boasts plenty of unique destinations where your relationship and personalities can be perfectly captured.
Like most photography sessions, light plays a crucial factor in creating atmospheric wedding images, and after deciding on your theme and location, choosing the right time for your shoot can make a huge difference.
But with magical sunrises and sunsets, as well as the bright lights of Singapore’s towering skyscrapers and reflective water surfaces to play with, the potential in this city is only limited by your (and your photographer’s) imaginations.
So, if you need some inspiration, here are our pick of 121 top wedding photoshoot locations in Singapore that cover all ends of the spectrum!
