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 06

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.
