WRITTEN IN THE STARS
Reflecting the celestial origins of its namesake, unions at Capella Singapore are dazzling affairs thanks to a variety of distinct indoor and outdoor venues, and stellar service
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.
