If you’re of the idea that wedding-worthy venues in Singapore include only the standard few, think again. Apart from the lovely parks and reservoirs we’ve got access to for alfresco celebrations, these lovely colonial venues will wow you with their sophisticated interiors and exteriors. Plus, the monochromatic colour palette will make working with any theme a breeze.

UNA at 1-Rochester
Apart from the wonderful alfresco dining experience, the award-winning Spanish restaurant and bar offers good eats, too. We like how the two-storey venue offers a variety of spaces – from its grand main building to the large breezy space that allows many wonderful photo angles. But the highlight is its mouth-watering dishes, which include its paellas

Located within the lush gardens in Raffles Hotel Singapore, the establishment serves contemporary East-meet-West cuisine featuring dishes such as chilli crab spaghettini, Oriental pulled duck and Javanese spice lamb rump.
