A rehab centre to a bar: 3 Singapore brides who married at unconventional and meaningful wedding venues

Three brides share why they decided to get hitched at these unconventional locations, and how much it cost them.

A rehab centre, a yacht, and a bar – these places aren’t exactly what comes to mind when you think about where to get hitched. We got three women to tell us about their unconventional wedding locations.

Fiona Cher, 27

Got married on a yacht in the middle of the ocean

Total cost: $10,000

"My husband and I met in London. We maintained a long-distance relationship for a long time because he was attending university in Bath while I was doing my degree in the city. There was a lot of travelling involved so we could see each other. 

I brought up the idea of having our wedding ceremony on a yacht as a joke, but my husband thought it was a great idea so we just ran with it.

We wanted our solemnisation to be intimate, special and memorable for us and our families. The idea of a yacht wedding seemed like a perfect metaphor for a new journey together. 

Our families were very supportive and our guests were also very excited since most of them were attending a yacht wedding for the first time. We did the planning ourselves but had a team of amazing vendors that helped put everything together. We actually still have two more wedding ceremonies to go: a country manor wedding reception in the UK, and a traditional Chinese banquet in Singapore!"
