Free wedding solemnisation venue

The outbreak of coronavirus and recently-implemented social distancing rules have impacted social gatherings in Singapore. Unsurprisingly, soon-to-be married couples have had to scramble to salvage their wedding plans.


However, one venue is here to save the day for Muslim couples unable to proceed with their solemnisation ceremonies. From April 1 to 30, The Ballroom Singapore is offering their venue for free to affected couples so that they can continue with their nikah ceremonies. They will also be providing light refreshments for guests.

In return, couples can use the venue for an hour and as long as they keep the ceremony limited to a total of 10 people.
