The Fullerton Hotel Singapore Sets The Scene For A Dream Wedding
Where better to celebrate the most important milestone of your life than at a heritage site such as the Fullerton Building? Gazetted as the 71st National Monument of Singapore in 2015, the Fullerton Building was designated Mile Zero, the official epicentre from which all of Singapore was mapped and measured back in the days before postcodes were implemented. Today, this historic building houses The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
There's plenty of reasons why you should choose this well-loved monument as the place to say ‘I do’. Apart from the historical significance of the building, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore also offers magnificent views and stunning architecture.
“The Fullerton Hotel Singapore sets an incredibly atmospheric backdrop with a unique, unforgettable setting unlike any other in Singapore, and it will still be here when you celebrate your 10th, 25th and 35th anniversaries!” says the hotel’s general manager, Cavaliere Giovanni Viterale.
Another key consideration that sets The Fullerton Hotel Singapore apart from the competition is its team of wedding specialists. They go the extra mile to ensure your big day is executed flawlessly, as many clients are happy to attest. More importantly, that service always comes with a genuine smile. Viterale adds: “At the wedding, your guests will remember the service they received and that’s key to elevate the overall experience.”
Nestled at the mouth of Singapore River with sweeping views of Marina Bay and dressed in classical Palladian architecture, this historic site has all the makings for a dream wedding. Hold a memorable dinner at the 440-seater pillar-less ballroom, elegantly designed with ellipse drop chandeliers adorned with over 386,000 crystals. It is well-equipped with the latest surround sound system and first-in-class theatre projectors, providing guests with an unparalleled experience for a milestone celebration.
For medium-sized functions of up to 120 guests (round-table setting), the charming all-white interiors of the historic Straits Room, once home to the elite Singapore Club, is the perfect canvas for lush oral decorations. And for an intimate solemnisation, head upstairs to the tranquil Roof Garden, which is beautifully illuminated with natural light.
On the culinary front, the bar is raised even higher with bespoke menus. Impress guests with an authentic Cantonese banquet prepared by Jade’s culinary team, led by executive Chinese chef, Leong Chee Yeng, or relish an Italian or French menu curated by executive chef, Michael Gremer.
To avoid disappointment, couples should book the venue at least nine months before the wedding date. This gives the hotel sufficient time to personalise your reception according to your specifications, right from the banquet menu to the floral arrangements.
Some attractive inclusions in the bridal package are four LCD (liquid crystal display) projectors for the banquet in The Grand Ballroom, special rate for the use of a vintage Rolls-Royce on the wedding day, and a stay at the one-bedroom Palladian Suite or two-storey Loft Suite, offering spectacular views of Marina Bay or the Singapore River.
Without a doubt, a wedding celebration at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore will mean memories to last a lifetime.
Everything, from the initial planning to the execution, was smooth and fuss-free.
— Michelle Ng and Vincent Kang
Michelle Ng’s passion for flowers was the inspiration for her garden-themed nuptials to sweetheart, Vincent Kang, in January this year. Instead of traditional roses or peonies, she opted for the rustic allure of pampas grass as the focal point of the décor for the wedding celebration. The couple held a morning solemnisation for 80 guests at the East Garden, followed by a tea ceremony in a function room in the late afternoon, and ended with a grand banquet dinner for 420 at the ballroom. “The most memorable part of the day was seeing the pampas grass sway under the warm sunlight of the East Garden as we recited our vows to each other. It was as though they were singing and basking in the joyous occasion along with us,” said Michelle, adding that many guests complimented on the décor and flowers.
“Everything, from the initial planning to the execution, was smooth and fuss-free. The food and service were excellent. In fact, our guests said that the Ginseng Abalone Soup was so good that they were turning their bowls upside down to make sure nothing was wasted!”
