Singapore Tatler Wedding - - CHIC SUITES -

There’s noth­ing quite like an is­land union, what with the sense of pri­vacy you get, be­ing able to escape the bus­tle of ev­ery­day city life and seal­ing your com­mit­ment against the breath­tak­ing majesty of Mother Na­ture. When you choose to say “I do” at Capella Sin­ga­pore, how­ever, you also get a cel­e­bra­tion with im­pec­ca­ble class and stel­lar ser­vice.

Whether you want a grandiose in­door re­cep­tion or an out­door soiree with a na­ture back­drop that could never be recre­ated in a ball­room, you’ll find it at this re­sort, named af­ter the bright­est star in the Auriga con­stel­la­tion. What could be more im­pres­sive than ex­chang­ing vows on the front lawn be­neath the cen­tury-old tree that is sym­bolic of your life­long com­mit­ment, or a solem­ni­sa­tion cer­e­mony over wa­ter with the pic­turesque South China Sea in the dis­tance? Then con­tinue the rev­elry in the Grand Ball­room. The set­ting for nu­mer­ous high-pro­file unions, what stands out about the space is that it is the only cir­cu­lar, pil­lar­less ball­room in Sin­ga­pore, promis­ing cel­e­bra­tions of greater in­ti­macy, even if you have 400 guests. An­chor­ing the ball­room is a mag­nif­i­cent com­mis­sioned glass sculp­ture by Amer­i­can artist Niko­las We­in­sten, whose un­du­lat­ing form ap­pears to come alive in a

cel­e­bra­tory dance of sorts when il­lu­mi­nated by a glass-domed sky­light. Not far from the ball­room is the com­fort­ably ap­pointed Bliss Suite with full-length three-way mir­rors and a walk-in wardrobe where you and your bridal party can pre­pare for your grand entrance, find respite or have a quick mas­sage. If you like the idea of na­ture scenes all around with­out hav­ing to worry about weather changes, there is the Sen­tosa Room. Floor-to-ceil­ing glass win­dows look­ing out to the sea, cas­cad­ing pools and lush green­ery im­me­di­ately soothe and bring the out­side in.

When you de­cide to wed at Capella Sin­ga­pore, you will be as­signed a Ro­mance Spe­cial­ist, who will at­tend to ev­ery­thing from de­sign­ing a menu to suit your taste to choos­ing the right venue for your event, hav­ing the patis­serie de­sign your wed­ding cake and planning spa ses­sions for your bridal party. If you’re ex­pect­ing out-of-town guests, they will also be able to help ar­range ac­com­mo­da­tion within the ur­ban re­sort. “No de­tail is too small for the ex­pert team. Just as ev­ery love story is unique, ev­ery cel­e­bra­tion is per­son­alised at Capella Sin­ga­pore,” says Priscilla Chua, se­nior di­rec­tor of ca­ter­ing and con­fer­ence ser­vices.

You will also get per­son­alised ser­vice from the rest of the team be­hind your wed­ding, from award-win­ning ex­ec­u­tive chef David Se­nia, who will cre­ate an epi­curean spread that mir­rors your per­son­al­i­ties and pref­er­ences, to the som­me­lier, who will sin­gle out fine wines to pair with each dish, and the in-house florist who will cre­ate splen­did ar­range­ments to cre­ate the right mood and wow your guests.

With de­tails this per­sonal and set­tings so unique, you can be sure your union at Capella Sin­ga­pore will cre­ate ex­pe­ri­ences your guests will not for­get long af­ter your big day, and mem­o­ries you’ll hold close to your heart for­ever.
