Haji Lane is an extremely recognisable part of Singapore with its attention-grabbing and bold murals on the walls. Once an empty street of pre-war shop houses, it is now a bustling place alive with independent fashion boutiques and Middle Eastern Cafes. The rows of streets with vivid and lively paintings on the walls help to bring an eclectic vibe into any pre-wedding photos taken there.

The outdoor part of Gardens by the Bay itself may be a too-common place for pre-wedding photoshoots, however, one of its enclosed conservatories, Cloud Forest is one that is rarely seen. The centrepiece of the conservatory is a 35-metre tall mountain covered in lush vegetation shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. There are also two walkways built high above the ground, making any couple’s pre-wedding photos not only outstanding but the experience an extraordinary one as well.

This is especially so for quaint cafes and swanky bars which can be found sprouting out almost everywhere in our little red dot. Couples can make use of their abundance to take distinctive pre-wedding photos that are unlike any other, like the one above at No. 5 Emerald Hill with a vintage oriental setting.

A place that looks completely out of Singapore, Punggol Ranch. It is one of the few laid back places you can find here, hidden in the North-East corner of Singapore. The ranch offers a whole new different experience with a variety of facilities and services. More than that, it is a place where unique photo opportunities are abound, with a mix of chalets and restaurants as backdrop and fun activities such as horse-riding and even rabbit feeding for couples.

There is no better way to reminisce the time when you and your significant other met than returning to that very place for a pre-wedding photoshoot. And this option seems to be getting more popular with young couples in Singapore. Especially for couples who want a piece of their school as a memory to bring along on their marriage life, your very own school can make for a sentimental and irreplaceable place to have your pre-wedding photoshoot.

The Helix Bridge and The Henderson Waves Bridge are two of the most iconic bridges in Singapore. The former a 280-metre pedestrian linkway – the longest in Singapore – that resembles the structure of a DNA and the latter the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore – at 36 metres above ground, these two bridges are surely exceptional places where you can take your pre-wedding photoshoots to extra lengths and new heights.

The National Museum of Singapore is the oldest museum in Singapore and boasts of a rich collection of exhibits on the history of Singapore. More notably, the architecture of the museum models after the neo-classical style and is seamlessly joined by a new modernist extension of glass and metal, giving the iconic building a mix of both traditional and contemporary vibe, allowing for some marvellous pre-wedding photos to be taken there.

 

13. Local hawker/ supermarket

There is almost nothing else quite as “uniquely Singapore” as our local hawker centres and even air-conditioned supermarkets. These places are a constant in most Singaporeans’ lives and could also become a constant in pre-wedding photoshoots in the near future, if they aren’t already one. Furthermore, the homely feel such places give to the photos is something that just cannot be found elsewhere, and will surely make your pre-wedding photos as unique as they can get.

 

14. Kombi Rocks

Kombi Rocks offers the best of both worlds with its Kombi Rocks Diner and Kombi Rocks Rides. The diner is the newly revamped Koon Kee Restaurant (still serving Thai & Chinese recipes passed down three generations) currently in a 50’s shop house with beautiful green tiled walls while the ‘rides’ offered is a fleet of VeeDubs & other vintage cars available for rental. Not only does the diner itself make for a really charming pre-wedding photoshoot place, you can even rent the beautifully conditioned vintage cars for use in your photoshoot anywhere!

 

15. Tuas/ Punggol Lalang Fields

Lalang is a type of grass that is commonly found in some parts of Singapore but recently has made numerous appearances in photoshoots. The main attraction about the Lalang fields is that even though they are similar looking (although the one at Tuas are shorter than the ones at Punggol if you look closely!) with the exact same type of grass, they provide a place where no two photos are alike and the conceptualisation of the photos are really up to the couple and the photographer, making it extremely unique and inimitable, as seen in the above photos.

 

16. Lorong Halus Bridge

The Lorong Halus Bridge, connecting Lorong Halus Wetland to Punggol Promenade over the Serangoon Reservoir, is a photogenic brick red steel pedestrian bridge that makes a stunning centrepiece in any photoshoots, particularly pre-wedding photoshoots. The contemporary looking bridge evokes feelings of nostalgia as the brick red colour of the bridge reminds one of the traditional bridges used for steam powered engines and looks terrific as the backdrop for minimalistic yet striking pre-wedding photos.

 

17. At Home

“Home is where the heart is” and certainly also where fun and cosy pre-wedding photos can be taken! While it rarely crosses anyone’s mind to have their pre-wedding photoshoot in the comforts of their own home, it is in fact a fuss-free, low cost option for couples who just want to relax and take it easy with their pre-wedding photoshoot. After all, what’s important is feeling and looking right at home with your significant other right?

 

18. Seletar Air Base

Seletar Air Base, located near Seletar Airport which no longer runs as an operational civil airport, is used by the Republic of Singapore Air Force for their Flying Training School (FTS). This is definitely one location that is extremely unique and rarely done for pre-wedding photoshoots. Despite this, the charm of the place lies in the serene surrounding of the air base and its cool looking aircrafts and aircraft hangers.

 

19. Hotel

Hotels like this particular one, ParkRoyal on Pickering, are especially designed to be structurally impressive and photo-worthy. The designs of such hotels effortlessly make splendid settings for pre-wedding photos that aren’t quite like the usual kind with flora and fauna but instead looks like something out of a magazine, with emphasis on the contemporary style of the building and the chicness of the couple in the photoshoot.

 

20. Orchard Road

Orchard Road, especially in front of the spectacular Ion Orchard shopping mall, looks especially impressive and dazzling at night when the bright LED lights from the buildings come on. The award winning structure of the Ion Orchard, with its multi-sensory canvas media wall, is definitely an eye-catching showpiece that looks out of this world, and most importantly cannot be found anywhere else but here.

From the illuminated streets of Ion Orchard to tall lalang grass and architecturally astonishing building, Singapore presents a whole variety of different places for any couple looking for unique pre-wedding photoshoot locations and opportunities.
