Most wedding days go by in a flash, but you can always count on photographs to last a lifetime. Photo shoots are the perfect keepsakes to document every occasion and every stage of a couple’s love story – be it surprise proposals, pre-weddings or even anniversaries.
Need some inspiration on how to take your romantic photo shoots to the next level? We suss out the five most picture-perfect spots around Singapore worth the long drive.
Everything about Coney Island spells magic – making it the perfect backdrop for dreamy photo shoots. Nature-loving couples will find an abundance of scenic spots around Coney Island for pretty photo ops – amidst the lalang fields, picturesque beachfronts, and majestic forests. The best part? Coney Island’s secluded, tranquil nature adds to the romance and charm of this rustic location.
Despite its less-than-accessible location, trust us when we say that Seletar Link is well worth the trek. With its idyllic surroundings and vast green spaces, this picture-perfect spot up North is serenity at its best. Strike a pose amongst the towering trees or cuddle up to your loved one while admiring the view of the reservoir. Either way, your photographs will evoke pure fairy tale romance.
How to get there by car
From Changi: Take TPE to Punggol West Flyover and take Exit 10. Follow Punggol Way to Seletar North Link. From City: Take CTE and Exit 16 to Seletar West Link. Continue to Seletar North Link.
Forget about towering skyscrapers and modern landmarks: for a slice of heritage and history, head to Winchester Road. Tucked away in the Southwestern part of the island, this quiet neighbourhood will whisk you back to Singapore’s colonial past – think majestic black-and-white bungalows, long winding roads, and acres of lush greenery. In a nutshell, this is the ideal location for couples seeking a romantic and nostalgic vibe for their photo shoots.
The perfect blend of modern architecture and unspoilt nature, we can’t think of a more scenic spot than Henderson Waves. Soaring 36 metres above the ground, this pedestrian bridge (the highest in Singapore!) is a popular vantage spot for shutterbugs and nature lovers – thanks to its distinctive wave-like structure and stunning views of the surrounding Southern Ridges. Tip: for an unforgettable photo op, be sure to wait until dusk falls when the bridge is illuminated to stunning effect.
No surprises here: Haji Lane in the Kampong Glam district is a popular haunt for visitors from all walks of life – shoppers, foodies, tourists, and yes, even couples on the hunt for a unique photo shoot location. With shop houses and indie boutiques lining the narrow laneway and colourful graffiti art adorning its walls, Haji Lane offers an urban yet eclectic setting with oodles of charm and character.
