For our readers who are of the Christian faith, celebrating your matrimony in the presence of God is definitely an important planning process. Besides picking your favourite bible verses and procuring a priest, the church venue is something that you’d like to spend some time considering too.
With so many churches in Singapore to pick from, we’ve listed 10 churches and have even added snippets of wedding information about them for you.
“I have found the one whom my soul loves.” Song of Solomon 3:4
1. Armenian Apostolic Church of St. Gregory the Illuminator
At St. Gregory the Illuminator, there are 2 slots that couples can pick from to hold their ceremony – a morning slot from 9am to 1pm and an afternoon one from 2pm to 6pm. The church can sit approximately 100 guests, while the garden area close by can accommodate an outdoor reception with 200 guests. In 2015, the minimum donation for a four hour time period wedding was $2,600, so couples should expect to donate a similar amount.
All Christian denominations are welcome, but the church does not have a resident priest to conduct the ceremony. Hence, couples ought to procure the priest on their own. For more information on the venue, please contact them at: [email protected]
