A Bird’s Eye View to Your Ideal Chapel Wedding Venue
Stepping foot into CHIJMES Hall is where you’ll be greeted to a unique charm and ambience. Being one of Singapore’s most famous iconic heritage buildings, this exquisitely refurbished early Gothic-style 19th century chapel boasts an intricate design and detail, making it a perfect venue for lovebirds to create fond memories that last a lifetime.
Featuring enviable high ceilings and detailed stained glass windows, the columns and corridors of the chapel also bear beautiful motifs of flowers and birds — contributing to its lasting allure. Gazetted as a National Monument in 1990, CHIJMES Hall is hands down a stunning venue situated in the heart of the city.
Unconfined Outdoor Solemnization or Intimate Indoor Reception, CHIJMES Can do Both
If you’re looking for an outdoor garden theme wedding, CHIJMES has the perfect setup for an outdoor solemnization in the lawn area. While having an outdoor solemnization gives you all the space in the world to move about, do pay extra caution to rainy weather, especially in November and December when the chances of rain are higher.
Coming to wedding banquets, couples may opt for either the traditional Chinese round tables or western long tables settings. This provides modern-day couples with more flexibility in table arrangements.
Exquisite Dining Experience
CHIJMES offers cuisines prepared by Tung Lok (Chinese) and Privé Catering (Modern/ Western) as banquet options.
Tung Lok is known for hosting some of the internationally acclaimed celebrity chefs such as Jean George Vongerichten, Susur Lee, Yim Jungsik, Hal Yamashita, George Colaborais and more. This probably means you can expect pretty high standards from the banquet dining. Owning some of the best restaurants across Singapore — Dancing Crab, LingZhi Vegetarian, TungLok Heen, TungLok Seafood, TungLok Peking Duck, Lao Beijing, etc — the group embraces culinary styles such as Northern Chinese and Sichuan, espousing tradition at its finest. Whilst anchoring its forte in traditional Chinese cuisine, Tung Lok is working to pave its way for Modern Chinese fare in Singapore.
Privé Catering is amongst the pioneers in Singapore’s ever-changing food and beverage scene. Helmed by a team of talented chefs and guided by a corporate philosophy of “Go The Extra SMILE”, the group now counts multiple brands under its growing portfolio, including CHIJMES, Privé at Marina at Keppel Bay, i12Katong, Singapore Botanic Gardens. Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM), Jewel Changi Airport, etc.
Perks & Benefits Offered by CHIJMES
While the perks are lesser in comparison to hotel wedding banquet packages —complimentary hotel stay— there is a bridal room within the venue itself, meticulously prepared to satisfy the necessities of the bride. This exclusively private room can be used both as a changing and makeup room for the bride, or even acts as a quiet sanctuary for the bride to reflect on the day’s events herself.
This venue is able to accommodate 300 pax for sit-down solemnisation/ banquet and up to 400 pax for a stand-up cocktail reception.
You get a fully-conditioned wedding venue bar at CHIJMES hall, magnificent chandeliers, Wi-Fi, a complete set of AV equipment, projector and screen, stage, along with a bridal room for changing.
Things to Note On
Limited Parking Space
This is definitely not the best thing to hear about CHIJMES, but kindly remind your guests regarding the expensive parking rates. Due to the limited capacity within the venue, direct your guests to cheaper alternatives: get them to park their cars at nearby malls such as Funan DigitaLife mall and Raffles City Shopping Centre. However, this also means that they need to walk a distance in their Sunday Best and have to pay for parking out of their own pockets.
To couples intending to have their solemnization and banquet indoors, your guests are bound for a blocked view. The solution nevertheless is to place 2 projectors at the front of the right and left aisle or to have a standing cocktail reception instead of a sit-down banquet. You make the call.
