While it is easy to replicate wedding themes such as the garden, fairy tale, starry night in enclosed areas, it might not be as easy to replicate a nautical themed wedding under the same circumstances because a nautical themed wedding needs all the elements of the great open ocean to make it work.
With Singapore being such a small island, you might think that there isn’t any suitable location for a nautical-themed wedding. However, this small island has more to offer than what you think! Surrounded by the sea, (one of the key elements needed for a nautical wedding) there are plentiful locations for you to choose from. Take a look at these gems to get ideas for locations in Singapore we have found that will help begin your voyage to “happily ever after”.
1) On the Yacht
Where could be a better location to have your wedding other than a yacht for a nautical-themed wedding? If you prefer to have a wedding celebration on a small scale, with just your relatives and close friends, chartering a yacht will be the prefect plan for an exclusive nautical wedding!
The number of guests you can invite on-board a yacht would depend on the type of fleet you rent. Typically, a yacht can hold 18 to 30 pax when cruising, and an additional 10 to 20 guests when docked at berth. Hence, most couples would choose to have their wedding solemnisation ceremony when cruising with only their relatives on board; and have their wedding reception when they dock at berth.
In Singapore, you can embark on the yacht either at One 15 Marina at Sentosa Cove, Marina at Keppel bay, or other marina clubs in the island.

If you and your partner would like to go out to sea for your wedding, the cruise will be your perfect location. Imagine holding your solemnization ceremony on the deck of the ship with the sunset as your backdrop, and enjoy the sea breeze as you as “I do”, we think that it is as nautical and romantic as it can get!
And of course, the best part of having your wedding on the cruise is having unlimited food!
For your meals on-board, there will be a few different choices of restaurants such as the Chinese, Mediterranean, Western, and even barbecue on deck. For the Mediterranean Restaurant and BBQ on deck, the food is usually served in buffet style.
As for the Chinese and Western Restaurants, the cuisines are usually served in courses, and you will be able to repeat your order as many times as you want!
Some of the cruises that provide wedding services are:
– Royal Caribbean
– Princess Cruises
– Celebrity Cruises
