5 Most Enchanting Churches in Singapore For A Catholic Wedding

Before we get carried away by the fancy ideas for weddings, we should always remember that a marriage symbolises a commitment of a lifetime and should be viewed as a formal & sacred event. Hence, Catholics and Christians usually hold their wedding ceremony in churches where they take their vows in a formal presence of a pastor or priest.

Couples would usually prefer hold their weddings at their own churches. However, sometimes when circumstances limits, the couple will have to look for alternate venues

e.g. Space constraint where the church is not big enough to accommodate your guest list, availability of venue during the wedding day etc.

If you’re in need for an alternate venue besides your church, here are some 5 magnificent churches in Singapore where you can consider for your wedding.
