A PARISIAN RO­MANCE

One of Sin­ga­pore’s new­est lux­ury wed­ding venues, SOF­I­TEL SIN­GA­PORE CITY CEN­TRE prom­ises to make ev­ery union an en­chant­ing be­spoke af­fair

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - CHIC SUITES -

You can trust the French to come up with the most beau­ti­ful love sto­ries. In Oc­to­ber 2017, Paris-head­quar­tered lux­ury ho­tel chain Sof­i­tel Ho­tels & Re­sorts un­veiled its third prop­erty in Sin­ga­pore, which prom­ises to be the set­ting for un­for­get­table wed­dings de­liv­ered in the hos­pi­tal­ity group’s leg­endary “mag­nifique” style.

Set in a French gar­den-in­spired build­ing in Tan­jong Pa­gar, Sof­i­tel Sin­ga­pore City Cen­tre gives cou­ples ev­ery­thing they need for a grand be­spoke cel­e­bra­tion. Cus­tomised flo­ral ar­range­ments? Check. Multi-faceted venues? Check. Award­win­ning cui­sine? Check. You will also have the full at­ten­tion of your per­sonal Mag­nifique Wed­ding spe­cial­ist who will an­tic­i­pate your needs and see to the tini­est of de­tails so your dream wed­ding can un­fold. “We strive to en­sure that ev­ery wed­ding planning jour­ney is seam­less, con­ve­nient and ful­fill­ing not only for us, but for the cou­ple. Apart from pro­vid­ing premium ban­quet ser­vices, we will also guide cou­ples to cus­tomise their event in order to cre­ate the kind of wed­ding-day mem­o­ries they want,” says Fern Koh, the ho­tel’s as­sis­tant di­rec­tor of ca­ter­ing sales.

The ho­tel’s piece de re­sis­tance is the Wal­lich Ball­room which sets the stage for op­u­lent cel­e­bra­tions with its ca­pac­ity for 450 guests and lux­u­ri­ous touches in­clud­ing

Bo­hemian crys­tal lights, LED mood lights and a 42-foot mega screen. For con­ve­nient out­fit changes, the ball­room comes with its own bridal VIP room, the Wal­lich Suite. The pri­vate ball­room foyer mean­while of­fers a cosy spot for drinks and canapes.

For smaller events like a wed­ding lunch, con­sider the day­light-filled Saga Ball­room, but if it’s the magic of say­ing “I do” in the great out­doors that you are af­ter, choose the Lawn, which over­looks the cen­tral busi­ness district and har­bour.

Wed­ding pack­ages for lunch and din­ner in­clude your choice of a Chi­nese set lunch or Western set menu pre­pared un­der the ba­ton of ex­ec­u­tive chef Jean- Charles Dubois and head of Chi­nese kitchen chef Andrew Chong, com­pli­men­tary but­ler pass canapes for your pre-event cock­tail re­cep­tion, four hours of un­lim­ited soft drinks, a bot­tle of cham­pagne, a bar­rel of beer as well as a bot­tle of house wine for each ta­ble of 10 guests. Even dec­o­ra­tions are taken care of; de­pend­ing on your pref­er­ence, the events team will deck the aisle and stage with fresh flo­ral stands and set ev­ery ta­ble with a flo­ral cen­tre­piece.

Af­ter your soiree, re­treat to the Pres­tige Suite where a warm meal awaits you, along with wine and gourmet choco­lates. The in­dul­gence con­tin­ues the next day with com­pli­men­tary break­fast for two at Racines Res­tau­rant or you can opt for an in-room Amer­i­can break­fast. Special gifts for new­ly­weds in­clude a hand­crafted scarf and pochette de­signed by Ital­ian artist Ari­anna Caroli. Ty­ing the knot is al­ways a mag­nif­i­cent af­fair at Sof­i­tel Sin­ga­pore City Cen­tre.
