Singapore Tatler Wedding - - FEATURE -

he scene is all too fa­mil­iar: wait­ers clear plate af­ter plate of barely picked-at steamed or salt­baked chicken while porce­lain bowls heaped with brown stir­fried noo­dles are left cold and limp on the lazy Su­san.

A lot of food goes to waste at wed­ding ban­quets. But not if Ital­ian celebrity chef Da­vide Ol­dani can help it. Ev­ery item care­fully ar­ranged on the plate is there for a rea­son. Mar­ry­ing sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents in in­no­va­tive ways, Ol­dani’s mod­ern Euro­pean menu at Foo’d by Da­vide Ol­dani is al­ways ex­cit­ing. in Ol­dani’s phi­los­o­phy of af­ford­able high-qual­ity food, they con­tinue to wow guests in Sin­ga­pore with each thought­fully and beautifully plated dish. High culi­nary stan­dards aside, there are many other fac­tors that draw dis­cern­ing din­ers to Foo’d. The flavours of Foo’d are tra­di­tional with a mod­ern twist, just like its home at the iconic Vic­to­ria Theatre and Concert Hall. Built more than 100 years ago and re­fur­bished in 2014, the stately neo­clas­si­cal com­plex is a well-loved na­tional mon­u­ment that con­tin­ues to sup­port and show­case the blos­som­ing Sin­ga­pore arts scene.

With gas­tron­omy now join­ing mu­sic and the arts at the heart of the es­tab­lish­ment, any wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion held here is guar­an­teed to be puls­ing with life. Not to men­tion, the restau­rant’s chic de­sign is also easy on the eyes.

Clean white walls and a lofty ceil­ing sup­ported by grand Corinthian col­umns set up a clas­si­cally el­e­gant back­drop for your spe­cial day. Seat­ing up to 150 guests, the restau­rant is also just cosy enough for more in­ti­mate cel­e­bra­tions among friends and fam­ily.

Nat­u­ral light floods into the space through the glass French doors around the room for pic­ture-per­fect day events. At night, warm light­ing cre­ates an invit­ing am­bi­ence for a homey, re­laxed din­ner. The restau­rant has its own sleek, stylish bar in the cor­ner—a high­light that’s sure to keep ev­ery­one in good spir­its, no mat­ter the time of day.

Apart from the fine food and re­fined sur­round­ings, your guests will also ap­pre­ci­ate the ac­ces­si­bil­ity of the venue. Most al­ready know the theatre sits just off the scenic Sin­ga­pore River, close to other land­marks such as the Padang and the Par­lia­ment House of Sin­ga­pore.

With all boxes checked for the ideal wed­ding venue, you can keep your fin­gers crossed that plan­ning the rest of your wed­ding is just as easy.
