Beaulieu House offers historical charm – quite literally. It has a rich history, dating back to the 1910s. It’s been used as a house of residence, naval base, and even the HQ for Japanese soldiers during WW2. Now, more than 110 years later, the building is now home to Sembawang Seafood Paradise.
The building has been pristinely preserved, including its interiors, where you’ll be able to do your first walk-in as a married couple on its original terrazzo flooring.

MM Galleri’s Showroom, Bent and Light is a venue that will have your friends and family fooled into thinking they’ve been transported into a cave.
It’s not a real cave, of course. This one-of-a-kind space only looks like one because of the structured ceiling and walls that have been crafted from bent marble. Thankfully, that’s as far as the similarities lie. Unlike real caves, you can still connect to your mobile data, so your guests won’t have to resort to sending smoke signals. They’ll still be able to post and tag your nuptials on IG.

Nestled within the quiet Seletar Aerospace Park is The Summerhouse – a 2-storey colonial-era building surrounded by a lush garden. But that’s not where you’ll be holding your walk down the aisle. No, that takes place on the backyard patio behind the building, where there’s a garden gazebo that will be decorated with fairy lights and flowers.

Go from the backyard to the building for the reception for an intimate gathering space for a banquet meal. You can hold the usual games, speeches, and baby picture montages here, as The Summerhouse can provide projectors, screens, and microphones for your party.
