17) Where are my Romeo and Juliet?

Posted on


rom 04

Where is this building and what is it for?  And what does it has to do with Love?

rom 05

Yes, this is the Registry of Marriages (ROM) and Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM).  The favorable building is located at 7 Canning Rise, Fort Canning.  A place where couples tie their knots, and leaves a memorable lifetime event with their friends and families!

ROM & ROMM will be there to greet you before you enter this sacred land of lifetime happiness.

rom 07

This is the place where couples in Singapore love to come and register themselves as “Love Birds”.  Most did the solemnization here before their customary ceremony.  While some “by appointment only” solemnization are done in religious premises or at venues at the comfort and convenience of the couples.

Before the entrance to the Registry Hall, two eye-catching sculptures welcome you with bliss of delight.  The one on the left (ROM logo) with an “M” signifies the Quintessential Elements of Marriage.  Everlasting Bliss and Love are represented by the fluidity and continuity of the stroke “M” which is the Registry of Marriages.

The other one on the right (ROMM logo) with the letters “T” and “U” signify “Tranquility in Unity”.

The Fort Canning Park behind and the little roundabout with a circular planter is a favorite photo shooting spot for newly weds.

    How cute! Love the squirrel shots. They could not have been more perfect! So am I to understand that this would be a place where people are married? Sorry for my ignorance….LOL. Here we have many places from churches to barns to mansions to backyards, but the couple has to buy a license first which is registered with the govt. (I don’t agree with that part… what business is it of theirs who I marry or not…) Love your posts Sydney!

      Yes! This is the place they registered as a legal husband and wife, you can did it thru internet or do solemnize somewhere!
      It just like your country buying a license thru government.
      Haha! Many many obstacle to go, sigh…..

    I really liked this “tour”. From the well-appointed grounds, to the lovely architecture–as ever!–to the lil squirrel who wraps it all up. I guess we know “where for art…Romeo” now..hehe. :)
