Getting married in CHIJMES is the closest you can get to a Royal Wedding, think Westminster Abbey. Built in 18th century, this convent building carries a Gothic architecture style and it has been well preserved since then. The last activity for religious and education purposes was in 1983 and it was adapted for public use till now. Thankfully the hall managed to survive over the years and now is a popular wedding hall.
We (Rosette Designs & Co) have planned and designed a few weddings in CHIJMES and are still in awe of their potential & beauty. Having the characteristic of a cathedral with tall columns, beautiful ceiling and huge stained glass, it was perfect for Western and Vintage inspired wedding. The best part is, you don’t have to be a Catholic to walk down their aisle.
The hall can fit in up to 30 round tables, but of course the best arrangement is the long table!
Since the hall is generally sports cream and off white color, it’s a designer paradise! We have done weddings in a few colors.
Peach Perfect – Vintage Lovely
This wedding gave us a chance to challenge ourselves.. turning a theatre setting for Holy Matrimony…
to Dinner setting in an hour during Cocktail timing! Challenge accepted and completed!
The trick is to hide all the tables into the side wings and hide them behind the elegant drapes. Love how the draper elegantly merged with the venue.
I even recycled the posies from the ceremony to decorate the drapes gatherings. Not a detail is spared!
What is a vintage wedding without antique typewriter and real old books? The books are imported from the father of the Groom’s library. Since both of them are law practitioner, these law books hold bittersweet memory during their study days.
