With so many idyllic locations adorned with lush greenery and colourful blooms, it's no wonder Singapore is called the garden city. Here are some beautiful venues that could set the backdrop for your dream wedding

1. The White Rabbit

Venture down the rabbit hole for an ethereal, garden wedding. Perched atop Dempsey Hill, The White Rabbit is nestled in a beautifully-restored 1940s chapel, setting an otherworldly backdrop to your romance.

Exchange your vows amidst the lush greenery of The Rabbit Hole—Singapore’s first specialty gin garden bar with its own herb garden—and mingle with your loved ones in this intimate space. For a reception of a bigger scale, bring the garden indoors to the dining area, which can comfortably seat up to 120 guests.

2. The Alkaff Mansion

With a heritage that dates back to 1918, The Alkaff Mansion is a Tudor-style two-storey bungalow that set the scene to high-society festivities back in the 1930s. Reopened last year after an extensive renovation, the site is now home to Wildseed Cafe, Spanish restaurants Una and Txa Pintxo Bar, and a gorgeous courtyard.

Boasting with a European-style pavilion, fountains and water features, the outdoor space is perfect for a quintessential garden wedding. The idyllic courtyard can host up to 250 guests as they witness your solemnisation under the gazebo, followed by an alfresco reception.

3. Open Farm Community

For a garden wedding with more character, farm-to-table restaurant Open Farm Community offers a rustic-chic backdrop to your celebrations. Sustainability is at the heart of this restaurant, so you can be assured that you’ll be dining on creative, guilt-free dishes that are big on local flavour.

Alfresco options at the 35,000 square-feet plot on Dempsey Hill includes the Cafe Terrace that hosts up to 80 standing guests—perfect for your solemnisation—and an Outdoor Deck that seats up to 38. But if you’re planning a wedding of a bigger scale, consider expanding into the indoor restaurant that seats 70, beautifully decorated in Scandinavian style.

4. Faber Peak Singapore

Take your celebration up to the hills at Faber Peak on Mount Faber. Offering the perfect vantage point to take in sweeping views of the sea and the lush landscapes below, the multi-concept venue’s glass-enclosed private dining room and sheltered open deck seats up to 70 guests. It’s almost like you’re having a garden wedding in the air!

Offering a more grounded experience is Faber Peak’s restaurant Arbora, featuring an al-fresco garden dining area that boasts equally breathtaking views and seats up to 260. An intimate solemnisation for up to 30 loved ones can also be arranged at the garden, before the Bell of Happiness.

5. Gardens by the Bay

Recreate your own Crazy Rich Asians wedding under the canopy of silver-hued Supertrees—an icon in Singapore’s cityscape. Silver Leaf at Gardens by the Bay hosts 200 to 500 guests in its 600 square-metre manicured garden and overlooks the Flower Dome and Marina Bay skyline, offering couples various possibilities to turn their dream wedding into reality.

If you prefer a more intimate setting, the Flower Field Hall within the Flower Dome offers a picturesque indoor venue with views of the Flower Field on one side and Marina Bay on the other. Both venues offer the option of chauffeur-driven garden cruisers to ferry guests.
