A marriage is more than just a wedding day. You might have heard how it takes a whole village to plan a wedding? But ultimately, it takes (mainly) two people to fall in love. And while it's fun to capture the excitement and pizzaz of your big day, sometimes we may just want to sit back and soak in the lovely story and couple that’s being celebrated that day.
That’s precisely why pre/post-wedding photography can be so important for soon-to-be husbands and wives: to capture everything that led up to popping the question and celebrating their everlasting union. And nothing says capturing a love story better than picking the right place to have your pre/post-wedding photoshoot.
It sounds daunting, figuring out the perfect place where both you and your partner can feel comfortable and authentic - after all you want the best photos preserved for memories. So we’ve compiled 5 dreamy and diverse places in Singapore for your pre/post wedding photoshoot, all tried and tested by our team here at Natasha Kasim Photography. So come, take a look!
1. Botanic gardens
Botanic Gardens has been the OG wedding photoshoot place for couples over the years and for good reason too! With a Swan Lake, National Orchid Garden and various gazebos, particularly their iconic white Bandstand, the Gardens boasts of nature and history, easily giving your photos a timeless quality.
For a lesser known twist to a common location, you can head over the the Gallop Extension where we shot Syafa & Naqi’s Pre-wedding photos here:
2. Peranakan Houses
If you’re looking for a more vibrant and homely aesthetic for your photoshoot, The Peranakan Houses are the place to go! Located along Joo Chiat Road, these multi-coloured houses make for a stunning backdrop with floral tiles and pastel hues that make your photos stand out all while preserving a rustic Singaporean life.
Are you and your soon-to-be spouse adventurous lovebirds? Capture both your adrenaline-pumping hearts in none other than Sentosa. A getaway island for our small island, Sentosa is revered for its three famous beaches: Tanjong, Siloso and Palawan. Our weather might make outdoor beach weddings a no-go but a photoshoot by the beach can give you a close substitute with a casual yet romantic setting.
4. Fort Canning Park
If Cottagecore is more your style, we highly recommend Fort Canning Park as your go-to pre/post wedding photoshoot location. Your white dress will definitely stand out in the thick of trees and foliage in a perfect marriage of contemporary and rural vibes. With 5 different gardens to explore, you’re likely to find a corner to snap your own fairy tale romance on film.
We’ve heard from the grapevine that this little spot in front of Keramat Sultan Iskandar is the place to get your photos taken. The steps and lattice wooden panels resemble a makeshift platform à la a natural wedding dias or pelamin that seals the deal.
5. Jurong Lake Gardens
For some of us, simplicity is key with only the couple of the day being the centre of attention. Jurong Lake Gardens is the perfect photoshoot spot for a calm and serene backdrop with little to no distractions. If you’d like nothing other than a large expanse of green to stroll through for candid photos of you and your partner, we recommend the Lakeside Gardens. You can even bring your own props to make the pre/post wedding shoot your own!
Our pro-tip? Head on over to the Lalang Fields (located at the “Lone Tree” on Google Maps) for a Bollywoodesque experience where you can dance around and capture a whole cinematic love story.
So there you have it: 5 romantic spots for your pre/post wedding photoshoot.
