35 Solemnisers in Singapore For The Perfect Wedding in 2020/2021

Here’s the latest list of solemnisers who are still officiating weddings for 2020/2021, complete with contact details and images.

Your wedding is a precious milestone for you and your fiancé, and that makes getting the details of your big day right all the more important, including finding the right solemniser to marry you and the love of your life.

Now, we know that modern couples are a busy lot. So, to save you the hassle of searching through the long list of available solemnisers on the Registry of Marriage (ROM) site, we’ve put together a list of 35 solemnisers who are still officiating weddings, all highly recommended by real brides, so you don’t have to waste your time going through a mega list or forums to find the solemniser for your happily-ever-after.

As our list is updated only yearly, once you have selected a solemniser of your liking, do double check the license expiry date via the ROM website to prevent any disappointment.

Seven Questions You Have Before Engaging A Solemniser

1. Is It Necessary For A Solemniser to Be Present?

Your solemnisation ceremony is the act of you officially marrying your partner-of-choice in the eyes of the law. A licensed solemniser will officiate the ceremony and verify all legal documents, ensure that both parties consent to the marriage, and facilitate the signing of the Certificate of Marriage.

2. When Do I Need to Hire A Solemniser?

Not everyone needs to engage a solemniser to get married. If you are planning to hold your solemnisation at a venue outside of the Registry of Marriage (ROM), then you’ll need to engage a solemniser from our updated list of ROM-approved officiants below.

For couples who are solemnising at the ROM, you do not need to search for a solemniser as one will be assigned to you.

3. When Should I Start Looking For A Solemniser?

To ensure that you get your choice of solemniser for your wedding, it is recommended that you book him/her at least three months before your solemnisation date. However, you may contact your preferred solemniser more than three months in advance to check on their availability and book their services, especially if they are very popular amongst soon-to-be-wed couples or if your solemnisation date is a popular one. However, do take note that some may not accept bookings too far in advance.

4. Is It Necessary To Meet Up With My Chosen Solemniser?

Once you’ve contacted and confirmed a solemniser for your wedding, schedule a meet-up with him or her to sign the Solemniser Consent Form and go through the order of events for your wedding. If you’re unsure about what to expect for your solemnisation ceremony, feel free to ask your solemniser to explain the process so you’ll have a better idea and can prepare for it.

It is also a good opportunity for you to get to know your chosen solemniser better. Every solemniser has their own style of officiating a solemnisation. Some prefer to cut to the chase and go straight to the point, while others like to inject a little humour or words of wisdom before they marry you. Find out what his or her preferred style is, and if it isn’t what you want for your solemnisation, discuss your preferred style and see if you can come to an agreement.

You should also ask for his or her buddy’s contact in the event of a no-show or delay in arrival on the day of your solemnisation, so you know who to contact in the event of an emergency that day.

5. Do I Need to Pay My Chosen Solemniser?

While solemnisers do not charge a fee for their services, it is only courteous to gift them with a token of appreciation for taking time and effort to officiate your wedding. The amount gifted is entirely up to you, but if you are unsure of how much you should gift them, don’t be afraid to ask how much he/she usually receives from previous weddings they’ve officiated. Most solemnisers are quite open to share about how much they’ve received in the past, so you can use that as a gauge.

6. Do I Need to Invite My Chosen Solemniser To Stay For The Wedding Banquet?

Most solemnisers usually leave after the solemnisation ceremony is over and do not join the celebrations after. Hence, it is not necessary to include them in the celebrations. However, double check with them if they wish or expect to join in the celebration after the solemnisation ceremony to avoid any misunderstanding on the day itself.
