40 Hidden Wedding Photoshoot Locations in Singapore for Incredible Shots
Couples and photographers with a sense of adventure will love all the stunning scenery and wedding photoshoot locations Singapore has to offer–from industrial warehouses to rocky beaches to rolling sand dunes!
COVID-19 sure has affected a lot of wedding plans, pre-wedding shoots included! With the indefinite travel bans forcing couples to postpone or cancel their destination pre-wedding photoshoots, photographers are becoming more creative in finding unique locations in Singapore. Our little red dot might be small, but with a bit of exploration and a sense of adventure, Singapore can become a stunning backdrop to your love story.
Hidden all over the island are gorgeous locales that look nothing like our lion city, from rocky beaches to misty forests with pale rays of sunlight, to rolling sand dunes. If urban scenes are more your thing, Singapore also offers industrial warehouses and nostalgically colourful shophouses. COVID-19 has also given wedding photography a silver lining: the absence of tourists makes it possible to get beautiful shots without the crowds at iconic spots like Gardens by the Bay or the Marina Bay skyline. Itching with wanderlust? Become a tourist in your own country, gear up for some adventure, and wander around with your love at these stunning photoshoot locations in Singapore!
